Tars Tarkas: A Real Museum Piece
OK how this flew under my radar I don't know. But here's the story: A Museum of Science Fiction is being readied to open in Washington DC and will include among its exhibits "A full-scale replica of Tars Tarkas, the compassionate king of the Green Martian warriors in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series is planned for display in the Aliens and Altered Life gallery." The only down side is that it won't be ready until 2017(!) so maybe by then Tars will be back on the big screen. If you want to see other planned exhibits hit http://firewireblog.com/2013/12/20/the-museum-of-science-fiction-to-open-in-washington-dc/ for more info.
