  • The Spartans never had it so good. Hope they’ve got something to put in it.

  • seems to be an ecological disaster!

    ppr says:
  • The blue facade is great. really expressive, and adds to the gestures. Unfortunatelly it probably is the color of the protective sheet on top of the actual panel, and the facade underneath will be gray as in the renders.
