    ummm seriously I think just about any one of us here could make a better one of those by looking at images of him taking said images to craft store and buying things and making our own...:rolleyes:
    aka yea it's complete crap.

    Maybe my memory's playing tricks on me, but I don't remember Fizzgig being so . . . brown. Wasn't there, say, white and grey and such around his mouth?

    Hmm. Maybe we could convince ourselves to buy this plush by deciding this is actually Fizzgig's rambunctious young nephew Figfizz.

    Or maybe not.

    >SIGH< And a plush Fizzgig is such a perfect idea, too. . . .

    Indeed! The color is totally off! :mad:

    It just occurred to me that what would be even better than a Fizzgig plush would be a Fizzgig hand puppet--so you could open his mouth way too wide like he did in the film. Imagine hiding somewhere and, as soon as someone approaches, making Fizzgig burst out of nowhere flinging open his jaws with all those teeth everywhere. Add your own sound effects: GWARRRRRHH!!

    You could probably do that by cutting a hole in the bottom or back.:)

    I don't mind the Rigel plush...the others ain't floating my boat. They look like home made versions.

    Rigel is ok and by that I mean just ok...why is he the wrong color though I always thought he was green and yellowish...this doll is gray..:rolleyes:

    I always wanted a Fizzgig plush or even better: a Fizzgig hand puppet!
    But after seeing this I'm very disappointed by the poor quality.
    I'd rather pay $200.- for a perfect Fizzgig than $19.- for this.

    uh crap


    I like that someone out there is starting to re-introduce old product lines, but at the same time, I'm sorry, The Dark Crystal is not "made" for plush lines. Just the very essence of the characters, do not translate to soft, plushy toys.

    I think they look awful.

    Good try, but I think the characters/world just don't fit into the mold of cuddly toys.

    Common guys, new ideas, and a more serious medium.

    Fizzgig Plush

    It might not be the best looking fizzgig, but I will most likely buy it.

    Being a huge Dark Crystal fan myself, I have always wanted a plush from the movie. Exspecially one of the gelfing, jen. Which they might just bring out since they mentioned more plushes and well he is a main charactor so I would assume he would be!:)

    We should make ones for ourselves and fellow fans that way they would look right!:excited:

    Disney + Henson + Corporate Greed + riding along on past glories + need to pay Eisner's "Muppet deal" debt + no respect or listening to the true fans =

    Crap like this.

    No true, I've seen (expensive) plush animals which look very real and nothing like this crap. A high quality Fizzgig plush (hand puppet) would be awesome IMO !

    At least the upcoming DC manga looks promising.
