    I'll be getting my Animal on Monday as well, and I can't wait of course! As soon as I get him set up, I'll post some pics in the Animal Pic Thread.

    There was some confusion with my order at MR - BUT got it straightened out. Animal will be arriving TODAY!

    The MR customer service guy was really nice! When you call, ask for Jazz. That's right - Jazz.

    I think mine was due in on Friday, but I asked FedEx to hold the package until Monday.

    I mentioned this in another thread about Gonzo, but the small felt disks that you buy in the hardware department to go under lamps and things so they don't scratch the furniture work very well as pupils. they come in a variety of sizes on a page. You just have to paint them black.

    Okiee Dokiee

    Is it me or do we all feel the pupils are small and out of place?

    I just got 2 of my animal's - I only opened one - I think I am going to shop him out - But I noticied something right away... He has two left hands... the fix is to turn it over by twisting his arm... but... What the dillio? - And I do collect weird one offs but that was wacky.

    I changed his shirt right away - I think I am going to put him in overalls and dress him like Alex Van Halen. I hate the pants so I am making some other stuff - jeans and whatnot. Colored his lids already but I may add more faux fur. He really needs a haircut - But I am happy with him. - He went right into the display case with Kermit.

    No, I do not feel the pupils on mine are small and out of place, as I've said in the other thread, I think. Maybe I just got lucky with mine, but I'm not fiddling with his eyes.

    I also don't think he needs a haircut, or hair gel as other people have done. My only complaint is that some of his moustache feathers are sticking straight out. I think I'm going to sew them down. It should only requie a stitch or two on each side. That way, once they have been like that for a while, I can snip the thread and they should stay on their own.

    I repositioned the hair and put the net back on his head to train the feathers in the direction they need to go in.

    Whoo-ha-ah-ouch! I went to Master Replica's this morning, concidering buying Animal sometime after Christmas. With the rate of conversion so good at the moment, it's really not that steep of a price to pay for him. A big splash-art symbol beside him also offered "Free Shipping!" But upon entering my address ala UK, it stuck seriously steep postage fees on there. Is the Free Shipping only in the US? And/or what is a cheaper way of buying him?

    Forbidden Planet had him listed quite resonably but they are sold out.

    Any way to bring down that...ouch...postage which literally doubled the price?

    Hi Beauregard , I purchased my Animal from the Collector Zone, very reasonable price at £149 , and the postage was around £3, only took 4 days to arrive as well, they may still have some in stock, check them out or give them a call - www.thecollectorzone.com , order line - 0845 305 6000 , you won't be disappointed :)

    How come everyone states that they got Animal from the Collector Zone for £149, I placed my order as soon as Animal came up for pre-order and both of mine cost me £159 from the same place?:boo:

    The Collector Zone are good though!;)

    Oops , my bad Reevz1977, you're right it was £159.99 , I just checked the receipt. I think I just tell my folks it was £150, I always do that with elaborate purchases, knock a few quid off so they don't think i'm blowing all my money on toys, (which of course I am) but they still thought I was at £150!

    So it's £163.49 exactly after shipping, which, as I look at him now, seems pretty reasonable to welcome Animal into the family ;)

    Oh thank god!

    Although, your not the only person who said it was £149 though:confused:

    At £159, it's still the cheapest I've found and the collector zone are really REALLY good and reliable! I highly recommended them to anyone in the UK for all the Muppets. They even let me pre-order Gonzo before they had him up for pre-order!:)

    By the way, from the photos, you have an ABSOLUTELY amazing collection, I was wondering, does your misses give you as much grief as I get? My collection resides in my loft:p

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    That IS really good value! Although Animal seems to have dissapeared from their site now. I'll have to do another bargain hunt after Christmas when I'm sure I have money to throw out right away.

    Wasn't trying to gripe about cost, by the way, was just inquireing.

    Hey , thanks Reevz1977 , i'm actually still living at home right now with the folks and they are amazingly patient, as i've managed to fill 2 lofts up and take over 2 bed rooms, I sense that patience is wearing thin tho so it won't be long before i'll be going through the same process when me & my girlfriend move in together, she's very patient too, but still pulls a whole manner of faces everytime I buy something new ;)
    Let's spare a thought for the partners that put up with us eh! I think she know's i'll never change, so it's best to not make me have to decide who stays, her or Kermit..DON'T MAKE ME CHOSE! ;)

    That was me who said it was £149! Thats what I paid for him, a tenner less for asking for discount as I said I was buying the whole line from them and telling others to get Muppets from them. If you dont ask you dont get! Still if I had paid £10 more thats still really cheap IMO.....I like many others have spent that on a night out.
