    He look great. Really great, I am so jealous you have yours already :) I gotta wait another 9 days! So are the eyes easy to pin back? I guess they are the same as Animals....cant wait to see a group shot.:D

    Well done for the pics

    He does look WAY better with the darker nose, the color doesn't make the nose material as obvious. Also the fur is a lot neater and better done on these too. He does actually look very "Gonzo", i'm suprised at how good its turned out all things considered. Suit is A++++++++++++

    They drive you crazy. Just kidding. I love them to no end. I want more, more, more!

    you don't really notice the plastic eyelid part till you lift up the eyelid part. You do have to pin them back of course. He turned out way much better than I thought. You just could not go without him. Travis is so right. He is amazing and that's just my opinion. He is just too cute. I just had to put pictures up for you guys to see him! ;)

    Oh, and he does come with the gold lining in the box as well. I got number 45 out of 2500!

    Got em'! Sorry, in a hurry so I'll be brief. First initial feeling was different. I actually squeaked! He looks so cute! I give him a...well, stars are hard. I give Gonzo a B to B+ so far. I haven't had time to tweak him yet.

    Here are the issues you want to know about:
    * Visible seams and weird texture of the nose (we knew that) isn't great, but it's not terrible at all.

    * Pupil focus is like season one Muppet Show - wandering eyes. Not bad, but needs fixing!

    * Lid shells not as visible, but I'll have to fix that too. The green portion of one lid is not painted enough, but easy fix.

    * Nose/mouth shape is darn close. Top lip isn't as pronounced as depicted. Color and shading is a little less detailed than I would like but it's purplish with yellow tones in it closer than most other products.

    Really Good stuff:
    * The rest - fur, hair, likeness, clothes, little - real - shoes etc. Go get 'em if you can. I swear to Camilla that some people just shouldn't be allowed to take pictures!

    This are snapshots taken right out of the box. No futzing no posing no Photoshopping in any way. Just stuck him up there and snapped so that you guys could get a true representation of him. Lighting could be better! here---:concern:

    Thats a great set of pics as well FrogBoy. I do think that MC has a Gonzo with better focus than yours, it may be like Animal, you either get a good one or a bad one. I bet you are really pleased to get him a t last

    Wow thats blue! I was sort of expecting Purple but I am loving the blue.:zany:

    Yeah, I'm happy with my Gonzo. There are some micro issues with the foam, paint, stocking seams and tiny pseudo snags, but in all I am pleased. I've met Gonzo and was expecting this to look like his simple cousin, but this is him. Not a perfect him, but a very very good him! I'd almost call him Great. :concern:

    A lot of folk around here probably feel they're getting the real skinny on his criticism with me as I have voiced many a concern!

    The fabric Caper suggested for eye dots is being shipped and will reach me next week. Thanks Caper. It will be a great help!

    Now it's off to see my partner and let him take a look at Gonzo. He's met the real fella too. :)

    So I take it that Gonzo is presented inside the box the same as Kermit, that is, fully standing in a blister cover, with silk background, so you could still display him in the box with the lid off if you wanted to?

    I'm in love with a blue weirdo.

    Wow Jamie, that's a huge pupil-placement difference between your Gonzo and MC's. Crazy factory shenanigans! :insatiable: (love the new smilies BTW, glad I got close on Big Bird!)

    Can't wait to get my Gonzie, I cancelled my MR preorder and got him for less through DisneyShopping.com, SO... I have to wait, but I'm glad I'm waiting for something that isn't horrible like I imagined! This is the first time I gave a looksie at in-hand MR Muppet pics before I got my own, cuz I was so scared with Gonzo! I'm very happy to see he isn't the disaster we all made him out to be.

    Cheers to MR!
