    I got mine! He looks great but his jacket seems to have more green in it than I expected.

    I'll have to make some videos and post them on Youtube soon.

    I think it's great that Disney wants to expands this beyond New York's store but it's too bad they want to raise the prise, though... As has been said before, I sure hope that there are more options in the future.

    Yeah I wish we can make a monster puppet. And more colors of the whatnots like yellow and purple.

    these are awesome!

    They say the shop is closed at the moment (1/22/2009). I do hope they will reopen soon. Is this a limited run of any sort? Or do they intend to keep this shop going for a while? I hope so, my birthday is pretty far off. lol

    Great to see the puppets people have received. Hope to see many more.

    I ordered one! I ordered one!

    I was able to justify the purchase cuzza two things:

    • 20% off (last day for that today)
    • Mostly gonna use him to play with my Kid

    My wife wanted to get me one for Christmas, but at the time it was too much of an expense during the pregnancy. Now though, taxes are on their way back to us, plus with the 20% off he only came to $92 and change.

    I can't believe it let me order! I got the yellow boa hair and the red hoodie (heard it was gonna be discontinued, otherwise I woulda picked the Hawaiian shirt & lei).

    I received mine yesterday after having ordered it December 30th.

    The craftsmanship is pretty dang good. The glue is strong and holds very well. You can see traces and remnants of it in the hairline, and where the eyes and nose are attached. But when they put my order together, they left a smudged dab of glue dry at the bottom of the right eye. As if they went to wipe off the excess and didn't realize they left it on. I don't want to fuss in getting it off as I worry about scratching the plastic.

    The fabric is awesome. The eyes are very Henson. I love it.

    The only disappointments, if you will, that I have are just a couple...

    The pompadour hair is NOT pompadour. Not poofy at all. Its actually very flat, almost like a Caesar cut. I was just looking forward to the pompy hairstyle that the order I created online showed. That was almost immediate in noticing upon opening the box.

    The other being the mouth. They didn't align the plastic reinforcement correctly that gives the shape and movement--- and as you can see in the open-mouth shot below--- it gives in a little on the puppet's right side.

    Below are a couple shots of mine...

    The fit up inside the puppet is very tight around the neck, but once your hand is up through there--- its all good. Its like new shoes--- you put them on a few times, it starts to break in.

    I got mine the other day and am very happy with my What-Not. Does anyone know if they plan to extend the range with other body types or potentially monster types?
