    Let us know how General Tso's Kitty dinner is after your done with the cats. :o Plus you have a long time before having a Rowlf to scare them away. And to think I'm concerned with sunlight and environmental damage!

    Not all of them look bad......I guess it depends on which version of Animal you are basing your replica on.....if you went for Modern then you would have to pluck a lot of hair out:D .

    Does anyone know what type of feathers are used on the Master replicas Animal?
  8. antonydavanzo New Member

    I think Ostrich......anyone care to correct me:confused: as I am not too sure.
  9. antonydavanzo New Member

    I use 2 very small pins, it has not damaged the foam in any way........so far:)

  11. antonydavanzo New Member

    Hi,

    It is Ostrich Feather plumes, it says so in the card that comes with Animal, I read it again last night!

    That must take a long time to prep those feathers!
  14. Reevz1977 Well-Known Member

    Awww man, all I can see now is naked Ostrichs just roaming around a field looking cold and lost and eating jam sandwiches to try and make themselves happy and they keep looking at old pictures when they used to have hair and get all sad and turn to the drink. They get p***ed on just two sips and start laying into each other and gradually they knock one another to the floor. The next day, they make friends, although theres still some underlying ill-feelings about the night before, and they make themselves grass skirts to cover their naughtyness, then they die! Darn it! Why? WHY?

    Or... not. :p

    Kidding! I loved your ostrich story!

    Can't wait to add Gonzo to the rest of the gang,

    I swear I spend an alarming amount of time just staring at these guys! It's so amazing to be able to have actual Muppets in the house , well, the closest possible thing without being a talented puppet builder.
    Anyone on here thought about lowering Animal's nose slightly, whenever I push it down, I really feels it resembles him even more, but i'm not sure how to go about doing it, maybe a bit of fabric glue underneath, sorry if this has already been touched upon.
    Counting down the days til the arrival of the lil blue fella! :)

    Seriously considering getting a Kermit. I just started Goozex so most of my money has still went to video games. Plus buying the ones that Goozex won't have.

    I was wondering if Animal's tongue was altered for the group picture on muppetcentral's home page? My Animal's tongue takes up the whole depth of the mouth and just touches his teeth, whereas the Animal in the picture has a tongue that gaps before his teeth.Or did they change Animal during manufacturing?
  19. Was Once Ernie New Member

    The tongue touches the teeth on my Animal.

    :p

    I agree - my Animal's tongue appears to be a fraction too large and very close to the teeth. It's not a material or thickness issue.
