Fixing Gonzo's Eye Focus

    I'm sure the instructions for fixing MR Gonzo's eyes are all over the place here, but I couldn't find them with the search function. Could someone link me to or explain them? Thanks so much.

    Also, if it involves buying black flocking, does anyone know where I could order some? I feel like I can peel his pupils and move them, but I want to be sure it won't ruin them before I do that.

    I wrote the instructions at the end of this MC review. :concern: Has all you should need including a link for the fabric, but feel free to ask additional questions.

    Too funny! That article is where I learned about fixing his eyes, but I never realized the orange font was a link to order the flocked paper. How embarrassing.

    You wrote that? Good job on it. Thanks for pointing out the link (and for writing that article!).

    Thanks. I just wrote the fix-it portion and that is my Gonzo poser picture too. Forum member Muppet Caper located the material we used to link in the article.

    This poser is such a stunning piece, but that eye focus almost ruins the painstaking work done elsewhere. I'm a stickler for such details and was on the team that worked on Gonzo's revised action figure a while back so all of this is second-nature to me now. :concern:

    The key with Muppet eye focus is to have the pupils very slightly cross instead of placing them pointing straight forward. The only challenging bit I had with fixing the poser focus was in peeling the backing off the adhesive stickers. The paper seems to stick but eventually if gives. ;)

    That's so cool! I guess you knew exactly how to place the pupils then. That makes you a reliable source :D

    Thanks again.

    Can anyone shed some light on the kind of "flocked sticker" material used to make new eyes? Thanks!

    I just ordered my Gonzo and was going to order the material for the eye, but I saw the link no longer functioned. Can anyone tell me what material I need for the eyes?
