    Hello everyone and Happy Holidays,

    I just wanted to make an announcement. I am starting a line of Muppet accessories for our MR replicas. First up will be an exact replica of Animals collar from the Muppet Movie. The prototype is finished and is being sent to the mold shop. I haven't set a price yet, but they won't be expensive. I want to keep them affordable. I am offering the collar 2 ways. One is all silver/metal color with round link silver chain like the one he wears in the ghost town and in the end Magic Store sequence. The second will be white with gold rivets and round link white chain like he wears in the movie theater at the beginning and very end of the film. They will be cast in a light weight plastic and can be added and removed easily from Animals neck. Each will come with about 4 ft of chain. These will be high quality and made from my shop, but they are fan produced. MR or Corgi are not involved. I originally started this project for myself and some friends but decided to take it a step further. There are other ideas on the workbench for the near future, but I wanted to start with the original collar from the classic film. I will keep you all posted on availability. I wanted to offer them to my fellow MC members first. Take care
    :halo:

    Hey guys, yes I will ship worldwide. I'll try to have photos posted in the next few weeks. The Holidays have slowed things down a bit.

    Yeah, I'd like to see some pics, too. I was going to get a dog collar and some chain from Home Depot, but if you've got something more accurate and moderately priced, I'm down for getting that. I'm still a little hazy on why exactly they didn't give him the collar and manacles to begin with. I mean, these aren't for kids, right?

    It was a cost factor.And Animal didnt always wear a collar.

    wow, really? I've NEVER seen Animal without a collar. At least, that I'm aware of. Maybe in a pizza hut commercial or rollerblading on an early 90's puzzle or something, but he always had it on the Muppet Show didn't he?

    They did plan on including these items with Animal, but found it too costly. Their advertising actually implied that the collar and chains would be included, but the wording was such that it wasn't an official confirmation. Still, it was a very poor choice by them to include nothing by way of any type of collar with him. They could have found a deal with some costume company (like the one I used) to include some approximation of a collar. It appears that MR is stepping up their game on the PR side of things lately and I'm glad. It appears they really want to get us Fozzie only if he’s a quality piece with hat and tie included.

    I did review Animal for Muppet Central earlier this year and it states my feelings on him exactly. My poser has shaped up to look a lot better since the pictures were taken. Here's a better one that shows him with the others holding their corresponding action figures.

    I think he may have started to ware the collar from The Muppet Movie and rest of the Muppet Show.

    Feel free to notify me when you have pics I am looking forward to seeing your work, I am currently looking everywhere for a collar for my replica & if there is any chance could you make an arm & ankle spike bracelets for both arms & legs as well.

    I'm waiting to get the master mold back from the shop. As far as anklets and bracelets, I probably won't be offering those. He really only wore those in cartoon images like t-shirts and on dolls and figures. His collar was trademark in the movies. Updates and pix coming soon.
