Im gonna go and watch Lost now so Ill be back in an hour...Im so loving the new series!
Okay guys, wish me luck in making my Gonzo window today because he should be coming! I'll likely miss his arrival but fingers crossed anyway. He's on a truck in San Francisco! <---and his cute little bowtie and cute little shoes are too!
Mine is already at my house, I am at work at the moment and won't be home for another two hours YIKES!
Man, I am excited for you! I cant wait to see your pics of all 3!
Got mine! He looks better, in my opinion, than the photos Travis posted. I will have pictures up this weekend. His eyes look much better in person. His nose is much, much better in person. A whole lot better than I thought. Glad I did the pre-sale.
Again, this is all just my opinion. But, I feel Master Replicas did an excellent job on a very difficult character to nail down.
Thats great news man, I cant wait to see pictures. Its great to hear a good comment like that as I think he will deserve it.
Could someone please tell me the coupon codes that can be used on Gonzo at DisneyShopping.com? Thanks a lot gang!
THis is the ugly part....Gonzo in his box when you open it up. Here is what he looks like:
I wrote all about my Gonzo in the other Gonzo thread. My poser's mouth wasn't open like that when I got him. Hmmm. Weird. He was so cure in the box.
The pre-release product photography on Gonzo is hideous. He actually looks great. Yeah, the fabric is disappointing, but soon forgotten. I can't stop staring at him. He'll need some tweaks, but I can handle that.
Having him in your hands and seeing past photo's just do not do justice to him. I keep looking at him also and he is simply awesome in my book. From a distance, but too far from me. You would not notice the nose situation like I would have thought. I think the colors are well ballanced on mine. His one eyelid is a little off, but not much to really notice. The only thing I was scared of when I opened the box was a version like Travis's. I kept thinking, OH NO! I am going to have to change those pupils as soon as he is out of the box. I can live with them since they are aligned correctly.
just ordered my MR GONZO YOOO HOOO! he'll be here in a few days thay tell me! yes!
CAN NOT WAIT!
I've already posted this on the other Gonzo thread but I know theres a few of us that it applies to so I though I'd post it here aswell. BAD NEWS for those of use who ordered Gonzo through the Collector Zone. I spoke to Paul today who said that he has been in contact with their buyer and Gonzo in currently being shipped over from the US and will not be here for another month I really hoped we'd see him ALOT sooner.
SO, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a UK retailer who has him IN STOCK and ready to ship
Hmm...He better get here before I leave uni for the summer...
For those in the US and the UK www.toynk.com have Gonzo in-stock for $249.99 (£128.07) plus shipping. Not bad for anybody thats in a rush to get hold of the little blue fella. I'm pretty tempted!
I seen these selling on ebay.com. Problem is postage to UK is over $90. It made the total about £190. Thats £30 more than waiting for Collector Zone. Also if there is a problem or fault its more difficult and expensive to return it?
Its a good price though.
Guys can I ask all of you an honest question? For those that have their gonzo. Would the foam used for gonzo's eyelids, or even the foam used on the insides been sufficient for the nose? Is it the same what is it? Reticulated foam? Even if not authentic wouldn't any kind of foam been asthetically right? Educate us here! LOL
my Gonzo is about to make his journey to Australia and as soon as he arrives, he is going to be sent away for a nose job!
The foam used for the eyelids appears to be very fragile - likely too fragile for the nose. I see why they had to go another rout. The "sock" is actually more like "netting" that attempts to give a foam-like texture or pattern. It doesn't quite succeed, but I have fallen in love with this Gonzo anyway. I still stand by the idea of a hollow plastic molded nose. Even with his faults he’s my favorite replica so far.
How much was postage muppetperson?
Hi there ! I received my Gonzo two days ago, and I would have been happier with him if the facbric of one pupil hadn't been slightly torn, giving him a strange look. What's more, I actually have the feeling the inside of the box--where Gonzo is fixed by a transparent plastic lid--was opened before, since the tapes on 3 sides are not as wide as the fourth (3 centimeters wide only, far less than the fourth side). Could someone tell me the width of their tapes so that I can know whether everything is normal ?
