My Final Thoughts
If you are a fan of Anakin Skywalker and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, then this is a must-have for your collection. It was hard to find any faults for this bust, and the ones that it has are so minor that it does not take anything away from it. The creative team of Barry Bradfield and Paul Harding did an amazing job in bringing the animated look of Anakin to this bust. On a scale of 1 to 5 Hashtags, I give the Ankain Bust from Diamond Select Toys / Gentle Gaint Ltd. 4 Hashtags!
