    But it's also the only one I have seen and he's way in the back and surrounded by bad posers. I say it's a one instance thing that was corrected and should not be the basis for a replica.

    Hi Folks, I gotta admit, this is another home run for Master Replicas. I LOVE MY ANIMAL! I have very few issues and think MR have done a bang up job! I think you need to see the product in person to truly judge. Just one question to all the people who have got him, how do you tame the fur? I've been trying for 2 days:p

    I was wondering that? The eyes look better, i have mine half open as the pupils are a bit off......Id love to know as well.
    Also I got my camera back so here are some better pics......I still feel that I need to play with him a bit more to get a better look....Kermit was a lot easier to get right IMO

    Thanks to everyone, especially Lab Rat for posting all their photos.

    Although the Animal replica is not perfect, he would have to be the best, most realistic depiction of Animal that's ever been available to date. I'm waiting for mine to be shipped downunder to Aus, and can't wait to get him in a couple of weeks.

    Although the 'obstructed' mouth closing and unposeable eyebrows are disappointing, I can't recall ever before seeing a commercial version of Animal that was even slightly realistic, and most relied on cheaper substitute fake fur (usually the wrong colour) for his trademark hair, which surely has to be the main thing that defines his character. On that, MR has done an excellent job for a mass-produced item that doesn't cost thousands of dollars.

    As far as the exactness of the eyes, pupils and nose, Animal has changed almost every time the puppet or poser was rebuilt, and IMHO the replica looks more like a 'classic' Animal than some of the 'balding' foam posers used from the 80's, or even the recent puppet used for the Season 2 DVD menus (it resembles Animal but doesn't match the older but better ones used in the actual S2 shows).

    Like Piggy, his actual likeness changed slightly all the time.

    i scrapped the pupils off with my finger nail it was easy and it doesnt leave a mark on the eye the new pupils are sticky backed flocked plastic just stuck on.

    Thanks a lot mate. I am being a real *** now........did you reuse the pupils or get new ones? I think I almost got the eyebrows right now! I have found that he looks a lot better with the eyes shut.
