Coming Soon: Pisa and Mini Lions

After what seems like a long quiet period, Piececool has added 2 or 7 new models, depending on how you count it. The first on is the Torre di Pisa. Yes, that’s the “English” name of it. Don’t ask me. The other 1 (or 6) model(s) is/are the Mini Lion Dance model(s), basically miniature versions […]
