Gonzo Vinylmation

    So I collect the Muppet Vinylmation Line and I was a bit annoyed at Gonzo being a 9" figure. For Animal I can see it...give him a bottle of growing pills and you've got yourself a Muppet Movie! But Gonzo?

    So I took a stab at costumizing my own. Other then being a bit to dark for my liking he came out ok. I plan to do a second one using a white primer (this one is done with black) to help see if that pops the colors a bit more. The nose is modeled from Green Stuff (Kneadatite).

    A before shot:

    Cool. Did they use a dimensional nose on the 9" figure, or was it just painted on?

    So, they sell just blank Vinylmations?

    Awesome! I really like this!
    Yeah, they sell them in a bunch of different colors, in both the 3" version and the 9" version.

    You did a great job with your custom Gonzo vinylmation, awesome.

    But I think it's sort of a rule (maybe I'm not totally sure) that they still have to have that Mickey Mouse look, which is the problem for Gonzo and his nose.

    I also have a red blank vinylmation and was debating on creating an Elmo one (yes I know he's not a Disney character, but it's just a custom, :p)

    Disney abolished that rule when they made the new 3" mold. They' got no Mickey nose. Just cheeks and ears. :D

    don't like the mold. The first mold has more Mickey Mouse qualities ( nose, buttons on chest, etc.); and since Vinylmation is supposed to revolve around Mickey, it should maintain those characteristics. I guess that it is easier to design when there aren't as many bumps or "obstacles" on the figure, if you know what I mean.
