    Is it just me or does plushie Walter look like he's just seen something particularly startling?

    It's like somebody said "Hey Walter, you just won the lottery" or something. He's got a total shocked expression going on.

    I like to think that's just his perpetual happy face for whenever he thinks of how he's an official Muppet now. :)

    Lol, I like to think of it as his "hey Walter, why don't you join us!" face:)

    Anybody else on here think the hair is just awesome! it looks JUST LIKE his hair in the film! I was able to part it to look like his, with a little more on his left side and smoothed down in the back.

    We finally got our Walter! Love him! We're very excited, can't you tell?! We've already recreated the Man or Muppet scene.

    Btw, don't tell Phillip it's his Christmas gift. ;)

    I picked up a Walter today and turned him into a puppet. While it seems kind of intuitive, here's what I did:

    1. Carefully unstitched the back half of his shirt from his pants (it would benefit from a couple of stitches on either side now to keep them from coming apart further, but I'm not so talented as that)
    2. Removed all stuffing from his body (the arms and legs are separate) and the lower half of his head (his "jaw")
    3. Trimmed the lower plastic mouth form (it can be brought through the hole you've made) carefully to conform better to the actual lower part of his mouth (it sticks out further, giving him an underbite)

    And there you have it! The only challenge is a major one...getting your hand up into the head. Most adult hands won't fit through his neck, but I was able to manipulate the mouth by putting my middle and ring fingers into the upper half (between the stuffing and the roof of his mouth) and my index finger and pinky in the lower part (your thumb stays in the body). A little uncomfortable, but sort of workable...and your index finger pokes through his chin kind of like the thumb on classic Kermit! But the best part is that he displays much better I think as a puppet than as a stuffed figure. Anyone else been inclined to try it??

    Here's a photo of the above Walter...positioned on a water bottle alongside the unaltered plush, and also on my hand (fingers only...the head's too small for my whole hand). In just ten minutes you too can have a cool Walter puppet...or at least a more realistic display!

    Nice Job!!!! Did you cut through the suit as well? or is the hole hidden in his back??

    EDIT-nevermind.. I missed the first post LOL

    I think ill buy another to try your tutorial, My only suggestion(is silly) to part his hair a little to the right and push it down in the back.. that is how I display my Walter plush anyway lol.

    I did the same thing a while back. But I just trimmed the plastic of the bottom of the mouth and took some of the stuffing out of his head. Looks MUCH better. A big part of why his mouth is so weird is how much stuffing they cram into his head.
