    Yeah, cutting may not be needed for Animal, maybe just some fluffing and combing. Though I think Jamie would probably be good at trimming Animals hair. He's a genius.

    I am not sure from the way it looks, Animals hair/feathers are either too long or there is too many for his head.

    I'd imagine it was spec'd out with the feathers sewn in a little thicker than you see on the real poser. If you've ever worked with a puppet that has a lot of ostrich feather accents, you will lose a few feathers. Some may even break, etc. Terry working on the fraggle set probably knew this and planned for it. Thankfully nobody has mentioned this possibility before the puppets were done, or MR would be making animal out of yarn to appease people scared that their $400 collectible would only last two years.

    I also think due to the "natural" nature of feathers, we're going to see a LOT of variation amongst these posers.

    :halo: Good point. I'll definitely wait on trimming as a last resort. I hope he won't even need that. I just keep thinking (for some reason) Animal's hair is going to be all shaggy like it looked on the actual puppet when he was a guest judge on that NBC talent show this summer. Now that needed to be trimmed. :eek:

    Dude, this is what I've been waiting to hear for a loooong time. I can't remember - if we ordered it directly from MR, will we get an email letting us know that it was shipped? I thought they did that for Kermit but my memory's shot.

    Good news guys, I did not get a tracking number by email, but there is a way to track it if you ordered it from MR site. Go to Fedex and at the top of the page it will say tracking...scroll down till you find "track by referance". Then under the referance box type in the "fullfillment ID" number that MR gave you in your account order information. then fill out the rest of the information at the bottom. Mine says that it will be at my house on Friday! I am so excited!

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO

    My Animal will be arriving on Friday!
  11. I take it that MR sent some to the UK at the same time as they sent them to the US? I had to wait for my Kermit to go from China to the US and then to the UK, so it took months in all.

  14. I ordered mine from The Collectors Zone but the email they sent told me to allow 3-5 working days for delivery. It'd be nice to receive it sooner tho!

  19. I was more than pleased with the way Kermit looked. I really hope Animal doesn't disappoint. I think some interaction between Animal and The Frog should be in the photos. :) :halo:
