    I'm contemplating a classic collar. What form of moneys do you take? Money order? I've pretty much closed my PayPal account due to irritation with their bureaucracy. If you can take a MO tell me and I'll get on the list!

    Here's another drumstick suggestion some of you might try. If you happen to know someone who plays the drums, ask them if they have some old drumsticks you can buy off of them. The more beat up, the better.

    Why old ones? Well, think about it. Animal "eats drums". Having drumsticks that look like they've been through several dozen gigs and have a lot of nicks, scratches and dents would fit Animal just fine.

    My brother is a drummer and let me have a pair of his old drumsticks. They're all dinged up, scratched and the tip is busted off of one. In short, they look like Animal's been gnawing on them and he looks great holding them!

    (Didn't mean to take the thread off topic, just thought I'd offer another hint to make Animal look more authentic).:halo:

    I will take a collar, and can pay via Paypal for it.

    I would like to see the White and Gold one (on your animal poser, if possible),
    before I pick between it and the silver version.

    I will have pics of the white and gold collar posted in a bit. I have also ordered small shipping boxes from a local supply company. I will have postage rates in the next few days. In the meantime, I will start casting up collars. Once I have postage figured out, I will email everyone on the list and post it here as well. You all can then decide if you would like to order the silver, white or both. I just needed 10 names for the first run but you guys on the list can order whatever you want. Once I send emails out, then you can send payment. Thanks everyone for making this an exciting project!

    You can sign me up for one too. Looks like that'll be batch two. It's a pity Animal never drummed for Spinal Tap. Then it would go up to eleven. ;)
  16. lithiumbrain

    lithiumbrain Well-Known Member

    LOL! Classic! I will mark you down Lew but send me a PM as well.

    I will send out emails and pms to all of you on the first list here shortly regarding the orders. Also pics posted tonight of the white collar. Postage rates are as follows:

    $9 - U.S.

    $14 - International

    I kept the box size down but enough room to protect the collar in shipping. It will come in a 10x10x6 inch box with packing material for safety. I will be sending each shipment USPS. UPS is way more expensive. If someone would like a tracking number then add $1 Unfortunately International packages cannot be tracked so I was told. If I add insurance to overseas packages you may get raped by customs. I will mark overseas customs forms as a "gift" for that purpose. Thanks everyone

    Here are the photos of the white and gold collar that Animal wore at the movie premier in the Muppet Movie. I also included pics of the collars off of Animal neck.









    I have started production on list #1 orders. If you would like to be on list #2 Please email or PM me. Thanks!
