    Hey ,
    Hope you're all having a good weekend, firstly , A huge thanks to Lab Rat for sending out the pupils, really appreciate your time and effort put into sending those out to many of us on here. I'm gonna have a go at carefully replacing the pupils tomorrow, taking on board Reevz1977's comments on how long it can take to get it absolutely spot on. But really, thanks again Lab Rat, top guy!

    And Chris, your pics of Kermit might just be the best pics i've ever seen posted of the replica Kermit, great idea to dress him up in Gonzo's tux, a few clothes clips should sort out that bagginess, so what are you planning on dressing Gonzo up in next? Look forward to seeing more pics, really great shots.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I was very pleased with the Kermit pics.

    I am gathering the items I need for the next dressing up session, may take a few weeks though, but I will post as soon as there done?

    Welcome to MC Chalor!

    Your Muppets look great! You've gotten some great shackles there on your Animal. Did you make 'em or buy? Oh, and no pics of your Kermit?


    P.S. All the pictures lately have been wonderful! I especially like Chris' Kermit pics. I'm hoping to have some time to redress my Gonzo soon, and maybe Kermit too! :batty:

    Hmmm. We'll see, but there might be some Gonzo pictures coming from me soon if today's excursion works out. :concern:

    However, Kev is in the city today! If the infamous mule is handy I might just get a fantastic shot! :o

    Either way, it's just cool that Kev is in the bay area! :)

    dear friends... can please someone tell me if this replicas can be used as hand puppets? i mean we could make them talk with the hand?

    Nope. These posers are beautiful, but they are stuffed articulated doll forms (for lack of a better term) of the characters. I believe that Disney nixed the idea of having puppets in order to protect their investment in the Muppet franchise. Smart move on their part, but disappointing to some fans. To conclude - no puppet openings on these replicas. :concern:

    I'm personally a little glad that nobody can have an official replica puppet of the Muppet characters due to the high esteem I hold the puppeteers and the Muppet mystique. The fact that we have posers is incredible. It does make me feel weird sometimes after spotting some photos out there with Kermit exhibiting unKermit-like behavior.

    Nonetheless, these are worth having! I have always dreamt of such a product.

    Thanks alot. I bought them from a halloween site that a member recomended (don't remember the name of it). I've never been a big fan of kermit. But if I had that kind of money, I would buy kermit and fozzie. I'll be getting rizzo (if it's made); but that'll probally be it for me.

    So no one knows where I could get a horn prop for gonzo?:concern:

    Hmm...I can't say as I have seen any disturbing images with the replica, only with little stuffed Kermits...Although to be fair, those were disturbing enough.

    horns for gonzo.. best bet would be craft stores.. look around.. they're usually easiest to spot around the holidays, but you should be able to find something year round if you look around enough

    Thanks. Yea I thought about trying hobby lobby. And if no suitable horns are available; perhaps a candle holder or funnel could be converted.

    Horn for Gonzo

    I would say look at girl dolls that are the same height as gonzo. Maybe they have a band girl doll somewhere. I would also say check ebay out. I'm sure you're bound to find one there. Good Luck! :)

    For those of you that put a sweater vest on Gonzo. What size did you get? I bought a 3T thinking it would fit, but he looks like a preppy rapper. It hangs on him. :concern:

    Hey guys I looked and the Kermit photo thread is gone. (longer than a year.) I was taking pics of my house, and well got sucked in by the frog. Some pretty cool shots. I left out him flipping me the bird as he walked out the door.

    If you see him, tell him to come home. I didn't mean the comment to him about being minimum fly frog labor!


    PS Made a folder just for you guys!

    Potentially Good/Bad news...A friend of mine went for a meeting with the top brass at Corgi today about taking on their design work and they informed him that they have been bought out this week by Hornby.

    Now as everyone knows, Corgi own Master Replicas. One can only speculate about what this means for the Muppet line, I guess we'll just have to see. I read an article in the press from a spokesperson from Hornby who 'criticised' some of Corgi's decisions with regards to products they released. They also went on to say that they were positive about the success of Corgi in the future, so... I guess that is why all is quiet on the Master Replicas front, but now the buy-out has been made public we SHOULD start getting some answers, even if they are not the ones we want to hear:o
