    Hello, I was wondering if anyone elses Gonzo says "Artist Proof" under the Limited edition type on the metal display plate? No edition number just "Artist Proof".

    My thoughts exactly. If Gonzo ever goes on a massive sale, I may consider getting another one and doing this too. But, I really like his nose the way it is (and I thought I would hate it).

    I just painted Gonzo's bottom lip pink and it makes a big difference. I didn't think it would. It's not that striking, but it gives more familiar character to the face. I'll post pictures soon. :concern:

    yeah, I like it so much, I've started wearing L'eggs ultra sheer over my own nose.

    i agree also, i think i prefer the stocking nose - the flocked nose makes it look just too solid. Also the one colour (which is way too dark) looks weird. kudos for trying it but i am leaving mine as is :concern:

    Hey UK fans,

    The collector zone has now changed the date again, it is now expected on 21/3/08. Thats two weeks from today, and also Good Friday, so probably no deliveries due to the bank holiday, then Easter Monday so we may get him in the week after Easter?

    Bummer!

  7. At this rate we may end up having to fork out for the bear at the same time as Gonzo. :p

    I feel bad for you, my UK friends! :(

    The flocked nose does look cool, but the sock isn't as bad as the pictures make it look.
    Looking at my Gonzo now, his bottom lip already looks like it's kinda pink. I"m confused.

    and me.......this is really stupid. I think that the collector zone have spun us a yarn, it doesnt take 2 months to transport items FACT.....I bet they just havent ordered them in time.:mad:
     
  11. They did say that they weren't even aware that Gonzo was available so maybe they didn't order them as quickly as they did with Animal.

    Jackpot

    Looks like someone put the master copy in with the regular stock and it got posted out by mistake.What a bonus!
     
  16. You may very well have yourself a VERY collectable piece of Muppet memorabilia there!

    I'll be honest, I'm as p***ed about all these delays as anyone, however who is to blame is in question. I can find no other UK retailer with him in stock, so the yarns given by The Collector zone could be true. There are also alot of US websites still listing him as coming into stock in May.

    I think there appears to be quite a lack of communication between MR and the Collector Zone which is resulting in the frustration as it stands. However, saying that, if any other UK MR distributor gets Gonzo in-stock before The Collector Zone, I will cancel my order and go with the new one. With regards to ordering Fozzie...who knows!
     
  18. It is a pain in the a**e but we have no option but to wait. It's just made worse by seeing all the great Gonzo replica pics from our US friends. Its only a matter of a few weeks before we will have our own Gonzo's!

    Maybe MR have taken the stock off the market and are relining the pupils!

    here's hoping.
