    Hi, Has anyone else waited over 11 years for a puppet from replica puppet builder Mike Lisa? He is Currently working under the name of MJL puppets (previously Creature Clones). Michael took over a $1000 from me in the summer of 2006 and I have seen nothing. He is now unresponsive after years of false promises and even trying to sell me more puppets while I wait.

    I see he is still advertising his puppets through social media so presume he is still in business? I hope no other Muppet fans go through the same experience I have with MJL puppets. An expensive lesson learned! But I would be interested to hear other people's stories. Becareful folks.

    Hi, I really appreciate your reply. Thank you for taking the time. I also hope by posting my experience it may make others think twice before handing over any money to Mike Lisa.

    Aw man, that's a shame. I follow the guy on Instagram and his puppets look AMAZING! I was really hoping to save up enough money to buy something from him. Oh well, I guess it's time to unfollow him. Perhaps if enough of us on here have Instagram accounts, we can spread the word by commenting on his posts, and replying to people who want to buy one of his puppets.

    Thank you for your reply. It's such a shame and I wish there was a happy ending to this.

    I have since been directed to reports filed on a website called rip off report from other unhappy Mike Lisa customers who have paid for puppets through his companies including one known as 'Creature Clones'

    MJL Puppet Design also have quite a following on Facebook.

    Unfortunately Mike refuses to respond to my messages so I am in process of taking this further. I just want it resolved. I Will update you.

    On a positive I know there are plenty of other honest and talented puppet designers out there and have been put in contact with some thanks to the forum
