Life-sized SIlver Surfer movie theater display

I took my wife out to the movies for Mother's Day, and while we were at the theater I spotted this life sized movie display thingy of the Silver Surfer from the new Fantastic Four movie Rise of the Silver Surfer. I've never seen a movie display like this before, I was absolutely blown away. I grabbed a few shots with my camera phone. Check 'em out.

The display includes a life-sized siver surfer figure riding his board in a crouched position. The back drop seems to depict a large building through which the Surfer has just passed. The backdrop is printed and wrapped below the statue in such a way to create the illusion that the Surfer is gliding down the face of the building. One really cool thing about the display is that the statue is supported from the rear end of the board only. This gives the convincing illusion that the statue is floating in mid-air.

Man, I'd love to get a hold of this display. Of course, I don't know how I'd get it home, or where I'd put it once I did. But seriously, wouldn't you want this?!
