    I am new to this forum and am 30 years old and have been a Muppet fan since I was very young. I am able to afford just one of the Muppet replcias and it just so happens that they have made my three favirotes. My question is, which one should I get Kermit, Gonzo or animal which is the best?

    If you can find a Kermit he'd be my first choice. Gonzo is also another good choice. Animal...well, he takes some fussing with to get to look right and he's more expensive so I'd say Kermit or Gonzo. Gonzo is my favorite, but I'm biased as he's my favorite Muppet.

    And Welcome to the Forum!

    Go for kermit-he is the cheapest and had the least problems.He also is the main focal muppet.

    Kermit is just plain rad, and since he was made first and has been out of stock for a year or two, I'd go with him if only to get him out of the way. Ok that didn't sound very positive, but face it- his price will only go up. Animal, from GOOD pictures I've seen looks incredible and had it not been for finding Kermit in-stock on a site, I would've gotten him first. Plus he's around $200-220 on a few sites and for his sheer size, that's great.

    Personally, I would go for Animal - I don't know why but he gets the most attention in my display. I assume it could be that most Kermit soft toys do resemble Kermit quite accurately to the naked eye (to the uneducated! ! ! ! !) but there had never been an Animal that looks anything like the puppet. The detail in the clothing and the feathers actually make him look like a really high quality replica (which he is).

    But then again, the Gonzo replica is genuinely breath taking. I know alot of people have griped about the accuracy of Gonzo (including myself), however it was Gonzo who really blew me away the most when I got him.

    I s'pose, to sum up - you can't go wrong with any of them!

    I totally agree with you. Espicially about animal and your reaction to gonzo as mine was the same

    I would also go with Kermit as well. He is really easy to work with and he is fun to pose. :)

    Gonzo Replica and is it worth it?

    I would go with Gonzo because he just looks amazing.:concern:

    Question: I am going to buy the Gonzo replica and someone ask is it worth spending $200 bucks on it. What do you who have the Gonzo Replica think? Is it Worth it?

    Please help

    The price on Kermit appears to be slowing increasing over the past year while it appears Animal and Gonzo may be nearing the bottom as they're now well under $200.

    By the way if you purchase any items like the replicas through a link like this one, part of your purchase will help support MC, so keep that in mind if you are considering a replica purchase.

    Save and buy all 3! Once you get 1 you will want the others, I would get Kermit 1st as he is the hardest to find, though as Reeevz said Animal does get the most attention....good luck

    I have all three, however, I would say, try to find Kermit first, there are a few deals out there.

    Well ordered Kermit and Gonzo so far I managed to get the money for those two and would relaly like to get animal soon but he does not seem to be that hard to find at the moment. Did I make a good decision?

    That's great! Upon the arrival of these very cool items you should keep in mind that they look a little stiff and corpse-like at first, but after you soften them up and get them right where you want them they do spring to life. They also seem to look even more fantastic every day! I am so glad to have my collection.

    That's the thing with me, I have Gonzo and Kermit, I would hope to have Animal soon, his price is going down, which is great, :halo:.

    Right now, I would say Animal is very impressive looking. But since I have two out of three, I think I enjoy Kermit a bit more as far as display, but Gonzo is neater to look at, if that helps :)

    I love all three, but I think I like Kermit the best (despite Gonzo being my favorite character).

    I think the reason is because Kermit doesn't have any clothes or anything, he's very simple. And there is something to be said about simplicity.

    There Here

    Well I just got the Kermit and Gonzo replica today. I have not even taken them out of the box yet as I am at work. Do you guys hav any tips on posing them? What to do, What not to do type things? Anything I have to be careful with etc? Thanks!

    Well I finally gave in after months of almost buying one, and picked up Gonzo. It was my intention just to get the one. But after seeing just how breathtaking he is, I now have Kermit and Animal en route.

    So I would recommend, if you really only want to get one, don't make it Gonzo! ;-)

    With Gonzo, you should totally be careful of his hair.

    When it comes to posing that's up to you dude, whatever you can image :).
