    Its a lot but the way I asee it it will gain a lot in the future......well my order has been done so there is no going back now. Looks like I will have to keep the price hidden from the wife.

    Gotta comment...

    Pics on the site look amazing. I'm not sure what people are complaining about. I would love to see more pics though *hint hint*

    $400. Ouch. Not to say it isn't worth it as I think it is. Just pricey is all. Likely out of my range.

    I'd imagine Gonzo would be cheaper?

    Fozzy much more expensive?

    Yeah the UK price is gonna be a lot,the best thing would be to get a friend in the USA to buy it and then ship it onto you surface mail. That would work out a lot cheaper than buying it from a UK Dealer.

    I don't think Animal looks bad at all - from those photos it does look like there is something very slightly off about the top of the head but as has been said, the people making them know the characters so it's probably the photo and about as good as you'll get considering the mass production and the materials. The rest of him is treeeeemendous, although Gonzo is my fave. I think a Rizzo or Beaker would be nice to finish the three and Fozzie is an excellent choice.

    Someone mentioned about display cases for these? Has anyone got anywhere good to buy them from - i take it you need to buy something airtight to preserve them.

    With the rise of Canadian dollar recently, this might help some of us north of the border with welcoming Animal and Gonzo into their homes.
  5. CyberSteak New Member


    Yeah, but then we're hit with duty and taxes. But yeah, it'll be cheaper then before.
  6. mrsieve Member

    At least Harper reduced the GST by a whole 1%. LOL
  7. BigDumbWookiee New Member

    How much bigger is the Fozzie muppet compared to Animal?
  8. tomahawk Member

    Height wise, probably the same. Width wise, much bigger.
  9. Bear Man Member

    There's a full-body photo of the "Big 5" taken from behind while they're jumping on the stage - should be great for size comparisons...if I could find the rotten thing!
  10. Davina Member

    yikes!

    ouch this is going to sting,. esp if we've still got gonzo and at least 2 more "big" ones for next year... am really hoping now we get Rizzo and/or Pepe in there next year....
    between buying muppets, saving for adoption, and we need to buy a new pom puppy (our poor little Rocky boy passed away last month from kidney failure..) oldest step daughter expecting a baby, and needing to go visit hubby's mom this year.... $ is gonna be tight for a bit... *sigh*

    Bring on Jim Henson photo puppet, that would be great :crazy:
  12. mrsieve Member

    Bear Man, I know the picture youre speaking of. I believed the last time I saw it was the main page of Muppet Central.

    This picture is the closest (so far) of the Fozzie/Animal height comparison.

    Fozzie does appear to be about the same height as Animal, but he's still way bigger overall:

    Fozzie Poser

    Note that Kermit would not be standing on the floor in that picture, so don't use it to compare to the height of Kermit, but I did a side by side with the picture Travis put up of the three MR puppets and Fozzie looks about the same height as Animal.

    Of course, I'm planning to have Fozzie sit in a full sized director's chair. A display case big enough to house him would take up half a room.

    :p
  14. Was Once Ernie New Member

    I believe those are the actual puppets, not posers, so you can't use that picture for height comparison. Also, even if they were the posers, they are placed on different levels for the camera. You'd need a picture where Fozzie and Animal were on the same plane for an accurate comparison.

    :p
  15. antonydavanzo New Member

    I really hope they sort the size of Animals nose out........maybe its the pic but it does look off.

    Danny, Where did you get that COOL picture, I love it.

    Its great to see pics that I have never seen before!

    Anyway, here is another picture of the posers, it is great to compare, Kermit, Gonzo, Animal and Fozzie, its actually my mouse mat at the moment!

    yeah theres just all kinds of wackyness going on with his head for me if anyone was to actully put their poser muppet next an actual photo of animal they would notice there is allot thats off.:smirk:
  19. MuppetDanny Well-Known Member

    Nice to hear to from you Chris :)

    I found that picture on the internet years ago, I can't remember which site it came from.

    That's not bad pic you got there Chris :D
  20. antonydavanzo New Member

    Very true....I am guessing that posing it better may help but like you said there is something not right with it....dont get me wrong I am loving the fact that us Muppet fans get to own a real cool Muppet collection like this put when I have to part with nearly £400 ($750) for Animal then I do want him to be perfect......PLEASE PLASE FIX THE NOSE.

    After looking again it seems that Animal has too much hair on his chin...what do you think?
