    I'm new to the forums here and just got Animal and Gonzo for Christmas. Lithiumbrain will you be making more? I really need one:halo:

    Wow - this collar is incredible. INCREDIBLE!

    I wish these were easier to produce because everyone who has an Animal should have one. Really nice work.

    Unfortunately for me, since our move, Animal's been stuck in public storage with Gonzo and Kermit - and a billion other collectibles! I hope to get him in the new house so I can wrap this steel collar around his neck.

    THanks again for such a great accessory!

    I got my silver collar in yesterday, and I am waiting for the white one to arrive. I'll probably get it on monday. The silver collar blew my mind, it has far exceeded my expectations. Animal looks perfect with it on. I will post pics but im waiting till I get the white one. I really can't thank you enough Lithiumbrain, you do amazing work. Animal finally feels complete. :halo:

    Looks good, these keep looking better and better. I've got to wait until Monday morning to pick mine up from the post office, but I'll be sure to post pics ASAP.
    These look like they're definitely worth the wait though.

    Aww man! That looks so good! I REALLY need one of these. frogboy, what method did you use to control your Animal's wild hair?
  13. frogboy4

    It takes a while for Animal's hair to settle. My method was to lightly wet my fingertips and run them through Animal's hair. It doesn't take much. After that, gravity will take its course and over time the hair will look better and better until it becomes very easy to style without drenching or damaging the poser. Hope this helps.

    My Animal collar arrived today, so I chained him to a tree!

    Those pics are really funny muppetperson. I guess thats one way to keep animal out of trouble. I recieved my silver collar a week ago and I just got my white collar today. I will be posting my own pics tommorow. I am just amazed by the quality of these. they look as if they had come with animal originally, thats how good they look in person.

    Great photos, Taylor. One problem with adding the collar is that it takes the place where the stand rods hold his neck.I lowered the stand and made it grab Animal under his arms, but it goes over his shirt.Going under would make the shirt at the back lift up where the rods are.Looks like you went under his shirt? What are other people doing?

    Just tried to see if I could put the stand grabber underneath the collar, and I could with a bit of fiddling around.
