It's a real pity about this replica. From the photos, Gonzo doesn't seem to have any life in him at all and I agree with everyone about the eyes. I can't imagine that anyone will ever make anything like this of the Muppet characters so I'll buy it. I really don't want to jeopardize the replica line's future either. Maybe the final product, once we have it in our hands, will be more like the Gonzo we know and love. Also, I wish MR would get some good posers/photographers in to take the promotional shots. Really good photos would make a lot of difference to people's opinions, I'm sure.
