    I don't have Gonzo yet but I plan on getting one. At first I was slightly skeptical because of what I read about "modding" him and everything... but I don't really care since Gonzo is my favorite Muppet character!

    I'm waiting for money in PayPal to clear and then I'm gonna get one, I'm so excited!

    Okay, got the last one from that link on page one....so some money is coming back here to Muppet Central....and I get me a Gonzo.......Sweeet....too bad it wont be here by my birthday....but soon enough.
     
  4. Out of interest, does anybody know if Gonzo is roughly the same build as Kermit? I'm talking about height and body size. Also, any idea what his shoe size is?

    it's a age 4 but i have made the body slimmer and made the arms thinner so it's more fitted.

    He looks awesome in that. What other customisations does yours have, eyes, mouth?

    The more and more i see pics of these without the suit i like him a lot better.

    When I did my pupils, I thought it was kinda spooky not seeing Gonzo like that. :scary:

    I have to admit that I officially like Gonzo and plan to buy him at some point.

    I'm very much starting to think Gonzo may be the best out of the three...

    For those of you who have bought clothes for Gonzo, what's the best size? I don't know how infant/toddler clothing works! :insatiable:

    I believe the 18-24 month range for both the shirt and pants (that's what I have on mine).

    Not sure about the shoes. Anyone?

    Hi everyone,

    This figure looks great, but can anyone confirm the height of it? I've read that it's 26" but that seems very big - is this true?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Just bring him to the mall to try on clothes! :insatiable:

    It would be interesting to see what kind of looks that the other customer would give you :coy:

    Yippee! my Gonzo arrived this morning.He is number 744, which is strange because I doubt that many would of sold yet.I think his pupils might of been placed slightly too high up.I might change them, but right now he has been sent off to get his nose/mouth flocked.

    Um, Question

    Yo! - What do you intend to do about the coloring of the nose and the interior of the mouth? Are you painting him? Or are you having someone else do it?

    I am tinking about getting a third gonzo and recreating his nose from thin Scott foam with a shaved interior base that is both the original nose and some build up. But I was going to paint it myself. Your idea seems more feasable and less expensive.:concern:
