The Lionel Vinyl Head Replicates 'Hello' Hitmaker's Cranium

Fans of the '80s and rhyming product names will undoubtedly get a kick out of the Lionel Vinyl Head. Crafted by design studio Hungry Castle, the humorous fan memorabilia is actually a vinyl record holder and wooden sculpture that replicates the iconic silhouette of Lionel Richie. The three pieces of the sculpture are laid flat in the album jacket, and to assemble, fans of the 'Hello' hitmaker only need to slot the pieces into place. The resemblance is actually quite uncanny as Richie's mustache and jerry curls are perfectly emulated using wood.

Though Hungry Castle is proud of what they've done with the Lionel Vinyl Head, they're thinking of grander possibilities. They recently started a Kickstarter page to raise funds for a 10 feet tall version of the Lionel Vinyl Head to be built in Tuskegee, Alabama.
