Your Thoughts: Authentic Gonzo Replica

    But is that with free or minimal postage cost? Also, would they get Gonzo any sooner than The Collector Zone? From my experience, Forbidden Planet don't get stuff in until quite a while after most other places.

    They say 30th March, which is after CZ but we've waited this long, postage is £2.50 and with Quidco discount plus up to another 10% I've just found on a voucher code site the actual price could be £140.00

    Up to you, I'm justing doing my father justice by being a good frugal Jewish girl!

    My experience with Forbidden Planet was bad, and I will not use them again. I ordered the Swedish Chef Playset, even after it arrived as in stock it took them 28 days to get it to me, the box was all bashed up when it arrived.

    They have got better but Im gonna stick to Collector Zone, at least I know I will have it a few days after they get it in stock.

    *Sigh*, another week, still no weirdo:boo: :sympathy:

    Yeah. :sympathy: I wanna start clothes shopping for him. He needs a nice casual shirt and jeans or khakis. On another note, I wonder how long it will be before Fozzie is up for pre-order?

    So are all us UK Gonzo buyers ready for clothes shopping for the little guy?

    I don't really look forward to perusing the kiddies section of M&S for check shirts!

    Anyone know where they're going to get their clobber from?

    Question for those that have Gonzo...
    Any problem with his hair? The way mine was packed made his hair look like the side ponytail thing that Janice had going on in the 80's.

    :) I was inspired by your painted results, Muppet Caper, and decided to add a little pink to Gonzo's lip. http://wijitworld.com/stock_images/gonzo_lips.jpg
    It's hard to tell in this picture, but I think it turned out pretty good. Such a small accent does so much. :concern:

    I haven't messed with the pupils. I need me some Goo-Gone. I was at Walgreens when I remembered, but they had like a bottle that was bigger than I needed for like six bucks. I couldn't find it at Target and I haven't been to Wal-Mart in awhile. :(
    The clothes I got for Gonzo are too big...18-24 I believe. A girl at work has an almost two year old. She said she'd look for a pair of khakis for me.!

    Frogboy...how do you keep his eyelids up? I'm worried I'll ruin them.

    Ooooh brilliant! I haven't altered my Gonzo's pupils yet. He still looks like he stepped outta Season One

    Are we ever going to get Gonzo?

  17. Mistersuperstar

    We will. Give it time. We have all this to look forward to! :)

    Sorry to have misinformed you Telly! I have 18-24 clothes on my Gonzo and they're perfect. I've also tried 18 month and 12 month clothing and those are good too. It may depend on what look you are going for and what style of clothing it is. I like the larger sizes for more casual clothes.

    12 month old clothing seems to work best for Kermit and I'm guessing that he and Gonzo have a similar build. I'm still holding back until I get him before doing any clothes shopping so I can measure him first.

    I got Gonzo today...and I am blown away at how great he is....sure there are little flaws and things I would change......but man......the shoes....are real.....and he's got real socks on too boot...that just blew me away.

    Also does anyone have the Pallisades mega Muppet Camilla with thier Gonzo? Hows it work for scale?
