[Flashback Friday] 298. Lincoln's Skull

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Azurafae, Tatman, and myself, Citizen Agent, are taking turns counting down our personal favorite 17 skulls from the Original 365.25 Year. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

#16: 298. Lincoln's Skull

I am glad to see that the link I thought of in my original comment on this piece is still active. What makes this one of my favorites, is partially the subject matter and partially the material used in making it. First, with Lincoln, how can one not immediately think of a skull because of the manner in which he was assassinated. Second, the tecnical achievement of this piece is amazing, I really enjoyed that this piece was actually built using a full spectrum of the diversity of pieces in the set rather than just having the main pieces arranged into a skull form.

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.0. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here.

I had these toys as a kid and didn't even find out until just this year that they were called Lincoln Logs! Anyway, this one is very cool...
