    Pics look great, but you so got to loose the white rims on the eyes.

    Hey Guys,

    The photos look awesome! To answer everyone's question about future collar orders. I will be doing more. But I will not have any time until after April. Probably in May. The other thing is materials went up slightly in 2010. That will increase the price of the collars a tiny bit. But not much. Hold tight and we will get round 2 going in a few months. Thanks!

    Hey Lithium,
    I (finally) just got my collar in the mail, and I love my collar very much. It totally completes the poser.

    That said, I do have one suggestion if you're doing a second batch.

    If you could, perhaps make the collar not quite as tall, I've found that Animal's head movability is limited while he's wearing the collar.

    Even an inch shorter would probably make a world of difference for the next set of collars.

    Just my thoughts. :)

    I'm glad you dig the collar. Wow you just got it? I forgot are you overseas? Anyway, the molds are done so I can't change it now. The thing is my collar is modeled after the Muppet Movie collar. The Muppet Caper and the Manhatten collars are skinnier and a bit bigger around. I just prefer the old school collar. If you watch the Muppet Movie, Animal did have very limited movement in the theater sequence with the white collar and the "Magic Store" and ghost town sequence. The collar he wore in the church playing the drums is more like the later Muppet Caper collar. I did my homework. LOL. Thanks for your input though.

    I figured you had done your homework.
    Seriously though, no worries at all. I really really do enjoy it immensely.
    Also, I'm not overseas, I'm just a little bit North of you in Canada. Chances are it got held up at the border in customs or something else like that.
    Better late than never!

    Hey fellow Muppet fans...

    Here is the collar update:

    I am doing another run of 10 collars due to be shipped at the end of April. Those of you that would like to pre order will secure your spot on the list. Due to a slight increase of material costs in 2010 the collars will be about $20 more than before.

    Here is the current price list:

    The steel collar including 3ft of chain - $60
    The white and gold collar including 3ft of chain - $65

    Both silver and white ordered together - $85

    Shipping is $9 US
    $14 overseas

    You can order by sending me an email at lithiumbrain@gmail.com
    Payment can be sent via Paypal or money order

    Thank you

    Hey guys,
    don't give up hope. Lithium is a little slow on updates, much like another replica company.
    But trust me when I say its worth it in the end. I was apart of the first set of orders and his work is magnificent.

    Hmm end of april shipping estimate on the new collars.
    He has the money since 20.02.2010.
    Since then i never heard anything from him beside he got the money.
    Im loosing my patiance now and did send him a mail for an update or refund if i dont hear from him withing a week i will need help from someone within the USA to take legal actions.

    As i see it now so far he scammed 99$ off me and that will stay untill he let me know a guanteed estimate of the shipping or refunded my money.
