    Thanks for reporting the discount. A simply amazing price for the value. It's almost worth getting several.

    :concern:

    Youre welcome !
    I still wish i could order it, but its not possible.
    I can only choose the 125$ one with 70$ shipping or head over to redfordfilms buy one for 99$ and 90$ shipping while you can get almost three of em for the same price.

    Amazon's price on Gonzo has now dropped another $10 to $59 with free shipping. Simply amazing considering the original $300 price. He may not be available long at that deep of a discount.

    Any idea on why Gonzo has become so cheap? Whereas Kermit is still in the over $200 range?

    This may be the answer. Kermit was quite a popular character when MR first put these out and sold like wild fire. It started out as a good item when he first came out. Gonzo is more of a tough sell and did not do well when they continued the line and added Animal to the list. So MR had plans on making Fozzie but with the bad sales of Gonzo and Animal, it didn't look like it was going to happen according to MR. So as far as we know, MR is no longer doing the Muppet photo puppet line and this is probably what explains it.

    Yes, Kermit has been sold out since December 2007 from MR so his price will likely only increase over time as he becomes more and more rare. Gonzo has probably hit bottom at $60-$70. It's hard to imagine him being any cheaper. MR still has Gonzos in-stock brand new even though they are the distributor. So apparently there are a lot of Gonzos out there that just aren't selling, hence the reasons for the drastic price cuts.

    Good deal

    Thanks for letting me know about this one, otherwise I probably wouldn't have purchased him.

    I remember a looooong time ago when the first prototypes popped up and how disappointed we all were when the mesh pantyhose nose was approved. But at sixty seven bucks and free shipping, who can be snobby?

    I'm glad I waited and looking forward to my new cheap Gonzo.

    Yes! Thank you, Muppet Central, for pointing this out. I couldn't afford one before, but I just ordered mine. Hooray!
    :concern::concern:

    Now, bring on the deep discount Animal!

    Hey everyone - if you missed out the price has unfortunately gone up again to $85 - hopefully you all got it already...

    I got mine of ebay yesterday for 67$ plus 90$ shipping to germany. Was the best deal i could get since i could not order :concern: for cheap on amazon.

    For animal i payed 120$ and 90$ shipping on ebay too.

    So for international buyers ebay is sometimes a good option too.

    Just got my sweet sixty seven dollar Gonzo. I never would've gotten him for the original price, but I have to say after posing him and staring for a minute or two, he looks pretty good!

    He really is spectacular - especially with the easy peasy pupil tweak. It makes all the difference in the world. It's like he's looking right at you about to say something. :concern:

    Got mine today, at long last! He's high-fiving Kermit at the moment.
