Only one of these still stands as of September 11, 2023, and it's slated to be gone in a matter of weeks, too. Word is that these have all been sold. The second to last one was just hauled off, and this last one is going later this month. There is another big person, not on display, laying on the ground behind the property. Supposedly it was acquired by the city but never moved.
