    Well, even if it technically is a MR poser converted to an actual puppet, it's still a stunning puppet nonetheless. It's kind of hard to tell it from the MR puppet, in my opinion.

    Its not a converted poser. The original poser was diseccted to get the pattern. The pattern was then used to make this puppet. Hand Dyed Antron Fleece was prepared and cut to the pattern pieces. The only part that was used in the building of the puppet from the poser was the Head Feathers and the Costume. Everything is nothing from the poser (skin, nose, teeth, tounge eyes brow and brow mech ect).

    If I were rich, I would buy that in a heartbeat. How cool would it be to have an Animal puppet laying around. I would feel like a real muppeteer! But $4,500...yikes!

    Looks nice but the price sure 'aint cheap! I'd be thinking more in the $1800 - $2400 area. Man, I gotta start making 'Animal' puppets!

    i'm not surprised you decided not to sell him. I made an animal as the first ever puppet i made and that was what made me start making puppets as a business, but then i did a rebuild (pics below) and i didn't have a pattern so there was a lot of looking at the five or six variants on Animal there has been and picking out the bits I liked to build my own version of him. I have occasionally sold puppets that i originally built for my own projects/videos, but i think Animal is the one i wouldn't ever put up for sale whatever happened. He is a great looking build.
