year fans rejoiced as Master Replicas Inc., an industry leader in
movie and television prop replicas, released a top-quality
Kermit the Frog "photo puppet". The Kermit replica
is a top-notch display replica of the world’s most famous
Frog – produced using the original patterns and materials.
The full-body doll is fully posable, highly detailed and skillfully
crafted. Master Replicas is planning to continue their line of Muppet
replicas with Animal who is planned for release later this year.
Replicas is proud to be able to present this first-ever authentic
replica of an Animal photo puppet. Like the Kermit replica, Animal
is created using the same patterns and similar materials as the original.
Animal will be a fully posable replica with mouth expression, and
movable eyelids; plus full articulation in neck, shoulders, elbows,
wrists, hips, knees, ankles and fingers. The replica will also come
with a custom display stand and numbered plaque. The Animal "photo
puppet" will measure approximately 38” x 5” x 8.5”.
Just like Kermi this is not a functioning puppet, but rather a replica
of the full-figure posers used for photo-shoots and displays.
Animal replica is being held to a very limited edition production
and will be strictly limited to 1,500 pieces worldwide (so be sure
your Animal Replica before they all get scooped up). With a
price tag of approximately $399, this is a high-price collector's
item. Given the quality and uniqueness of this item, it is surely
worth the addition to any Muppet collection.
replica in the pipe-line is said to be a Gonzo photo puppet (which
was planned to precede Animal, but has been delayed due to "nose
complications"). After Gonzo, word on the street is that the
first Muppet Replica in 2008 is Fozzie Bear. Two more Muppets are
also scheduled for release in 2008.
Great Gonzo Muppet Replica is scheduled for release later this
then start saving your pennies, and be sure to order
your Animal or Kermit photo puppets while they are still available.
