    Great pic mate........I have noticed that a lot of these pics are of Gonzo with his eyes left as they are, have you guys tried pinning them back?

    I'm a little frightened to mess with the delicate foam too much. :concern:

    I agree great pics.

    Still feeling a bit deflated about the wait to get him in the UK, but when I see these new pics he looks great and revives my excitement about getting him.

    Hurry Up Gonzo, get here soon. I bet he's so bored being stuck at sea for so long!

    Quick note to any UK buyer who pre-ordered from The Collector Zone. Their release date has been brought forward to 03/03/2008. That's good news!

    Question about your Gonzo's. Does one the right eyelid seem like it is off a little from the left one? Or do they both look like they are even? Mine seems to look off or crooked.

    Actually, that's the authentic Gonzo design. His left (our right) eyelid is a fraction higher than his right one. You will see this in both the posers and especially the actual production puppet. I am glad Master Replicas and Disney retained this particular point of accuracy. :flirt:

    A little known fact - Dave Goelz actually designed the first eye mechanism for Gonzo. :concern:

    I might help shoot some pictures of Gonzo like the one on the main page, but I would like someone else to handle this and the following official Muppet Central review for the sake of variety. However, I would enjoy reviewing the Pig or the Rat or the sculptures! :shifty:

    In all, Gonzo receives an average of 4.25/5 stars from me. His eye focus could be better, his nose netting is unfortunate, but not as bad as expected. Even seeing that he's less accurate he's still my favorite and the most fun of the three this far! That's pretty much my review. He he.

    Mine seem fine. But than again, it is Gonzo and he is always a bit off. :concern:

    Well, I am hoping that mine is not the only one. It may be something that I will be fixing soon or later. Just thought it was odd is all when I see everyone elses and they look pretty much even.

    See what I mean?

    That eyelid is supposed to be higher, as stated before, but that does appear to be a bit higher than normal. I might tweak it. :concern:

    Any help on that would be nice. How would I submit it and all the pictures? Maybe frogboy can help me on this one.

    Also did you get the stuff for your pupils yet frogboy? how did it turn out?

    Muppet Central Reviews

    :search: There is a self-explanatory page on the topic on the Muppet Central website that explains the easy process better than I could. There's also a place for notes where you could provide links to your photographs.

    I really would like to see more reviews by forum members than the regular staff, but it always seems to fall to us. I encourage Caper and anyone who wants to submit a review (on this or any other product) to do so! Muppet Central can always use help in this department. :wisdom:

    :) Hope this answered your question.​

    I REALLY hope the Rat gets made! I'd be up for a review on that one!

    I think the rat may well be next after da Fozz. Travis seemed to be saying that Piggy could get bumped back a bit.
