Sure, they may not have much color to them, but who hasn't spent time searching the bosses of the Spiral for that perfect statue (or I suppose the Bazaar for the more common ones)? I'M GUILTY OF THAT!
I've seen some people do amazing things with their statues (far more amazing than I ever have) and in fact I've seen a lot of people start up a huge collection of statues! It's too bad there isn't a badge in game for statue collecting, right? Well, I'm sure we'd do it anyway because the right housing statues make the house in Wizard101.
Housing statues, yup, pure awesome!
