    haha, LOVE the arms crossed pose.

    Just a quick question, is it still the plan to do the non poser items next year, (i think it was rumored the EM Bus and Studebaker models, and the TMS Jacket/Sign) - and hows things going for those? Also where can i find the last released pics of Gonzo, are they on MR site anywhere? Hope your doing fine!

    Gonzo is coming along very well... just slowly. That nose is very, very tough. The problem is that the exposed foam that Gonzo's nose is made of breaks and deteriorates very easily. And so, we're looking for alternatives that do not damage the integrity of Gonzo's appearance.

    I think Rowlf was being considered a while ago, before we even knew about Gonzo, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the 3.

    I really hope :sympathy: is one of them

    Well, I have one more picture... this one is VERY cool, and also very exclusive. Here's a look at our growing little Muppet Photo puppet family, including THE FACTORY'S FIRST GONZO. Now note:

    (1.) The suit is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG in terms of color... so just disregard that.

    (2.) Gonzo's fur is not "blue" enough -- too much grey. That will be changing.

    (3.) Nose color... not right. Not enough "mix" of color...

    And there will be other changes, too. But that's it off the top of my head.

    Anyway, here's the gang. A lot of people are going to say, "Oh wow, Animal is too tall." No, he's not. That's the size, per the original patterns. :)

    So far, I like both of them, cannot wait to pre-order them. What is on the board for next year as far as muppets then Trav? Or ideas of any.

    Gonzo is looking fabulous. That's amazing work. Yeah he must be so complex to do - never has a nose caused licensee's so many problems!

    Man, that's going to be murder getting a display case for Animal! Oh well, I gotta have him!

    I'm really happy with the way Animal's turned out, he looks great. I plan on setting him up with a small drum set, which I should probably start looking for, Ever since I heard about him being one of the next replicas I've known he'd be displayed with a drum set. He does look bigger than I expected, not that I'm saying he's the wrong size but once you pose him and bend his legs more he'll look better next to Gonzo & Kermit. Animal's legs are always really bent, even when he walks, so once you bend his knees he'll look great next to both Kermit & Gonzo.

    Though I actually like th efact that Animal is alittle bigger, since he'll probably be displayed away from the other replicas anyway seeing as I wants to sit him behind a drumset

    Thanks for all these updates, all at once, it was worth the wait.

    :) :halo: :concern:

    Any chance we could maybe get a hint who one of the three new replicas might be?

    This is going to cause me trouble sleeping tonight, time to sort out every Muppet in order of size.

    Could we be getting Sweetums:zany: :)

    I know Fozzie and Piggy are taller than both of them!
