Resin Figure | #4 Collector's Series | Bib Sitting on Tire Stack
The fourth addition to the Collector's Series is a modified version of the European truck topper Michelin Man Bibendum Figure Bib Sitting on Tire Stack. An original truck topper Michelin figure is known to be among the most highly sought after Michelin Man items for collectors and Michelin enthusiasts alike. The truck topper Bib figure, usually made of plastic, was commonly found mounted atop Michelin delivery trucks or company vehicles that traveled the roads of Europe during the 1960s through the early 90s. Often, these Bib figures were illuminated. The new Bib Sitting on Tire Stack design is based on this famous truck topper figure. It features a unique design that incorporates a stack of miniature Michelin tires as its base. The figure sits atop these three real tires that feature the famous Michelin Double Rivet vintage tread design. Each tire features authentic sidewall markings. The figure itself is solid poly-resin and is approximately 15 1/2 inches tall by 12 inches wide elbow to elbow. Made in the USA, each piece receives a hand painted, antique finish assuring that no two are exactly alike. A real conversation piece, the Bib Sitting on Tire Stack is a must for any Michelin or Bibendum collection. It is fully approved and licensed by Michelin Lifestyle Limited and is marked with a 2006 copyright.
