    Here's another hint: Muppet Loverr's avatar is the way to get a Piggy mold without having to get it from Puppet Heap.

    Enough said.

    :p

    Does Terry know this? I see the avatar, but what does this mean Was Once Ernie? What is it made out of, or ho is it made I sould ask. Maybe I can relay this to Terry.

    Terry's friend knows about this already.The avitar is a picture of an unfinished Miss Piggy that has been circulating.

    So what is it made out of then?

    No, it is helping with some clues!

    No, it's not your avatar, we are trying to figure out what Piggy would be made out of due to it being made from a mold, and Was Once Ernie said that there are other ways of making Piggy without the mold. Refering to your Avatar.

    Flocked foam.But if you have a mould, it could be recast in another durable material, such as soft vinyl, like the original Fisher Price Miss Piggy toy puppets, and then flocked.

    Oh no, if they are having trouble with Gonzo's nose, just think of the trouble they are going to have with Piggy. Another long pre-order for next year....YIKES!

    Yes, that is what Terry is refering to about some obstucles along the way.

    I noticed on www.monstermakers.com it explains about the Muppets and using latex foam. Here is what it said:

    STORAGE & LIFE EXPECTANCY: Foam chemicals stored tightly capped in a cool room will last a year or more. Shake them every month or so. Cured latex stored in plastic bags in a dry place away from light can last 20 years or more. Place puppets in a plastic bag in a box somewhere safe. Don’t squash puppets as they may stay deformed. Give them some breathing space. Stuff paper or cloth into heads to keep their shape when stored for long periods. foam latex I formulated for the Tarzan movie Greystoke kept in sealed plastic bags was reported to be as subtle as new more than 15 years after its manufacture. With Miss Piggy being used every day of the week on the original Muppet Show it was common to replace her every 6 - 12 months. Mouth corners and necks are the first to go on foam latex puppets. Performing on weekends and holidays, a foam latex puppet could last many years. It’s wise to have a backup puppet in case of an accident when doing film and television work.


    There just MIGHT be hope...we will see in the future about our lovely pig! :mad:

    Actually, what I meant to say, but was being obtuse, is that there are other ways to get a Piggy mold without Puppet Heap loaning theirs to Master Replicas or Terry.

    :p

    What other way would there be?...oh wait, I think I got it......or do I? :confused:
  14. muppetperson

    Basically, you can make something from a mould and you can reverse this process.So from the head, you can recreate the mould, which I know exists, so that mould could be used if the original mould cant.

    he's saying that there are other piggies out there in the world that a new mold could be cast from if they really needed to......

    Actually, we have already been confirmed that all the 3 in the picture are coming out after Kermit.And Miss Piggy is semi confirmed as the fifth photo puppet.Now we have to speculate on who the sixth character will be.
  20. Fozzie has been confirmed as the fourth? I must have missed that. :o Glad to hear it tho.
