Big Tex doesn't look like Big Tex - yet. But State Fair of Texas officials released a behind-the-scenes video of designers at work on the new face for the icon.
The computer animation shows designers sculpting Big Tex's face digitally, definitely not how the original Tex was built decades ago.
The new and improved Big Tex will make his debut at this year's fair.
Of course, the old Tex went down in flames after a wire short ignited him in the final days of the fair's 2012 run.
The total cost of the new Big Tex is expected to be more than $500,000.
