    You're right. And the original poser's legs aren't as sturdy as the EFX version.

    And in defense of eFX, Rizzo's fingers appear to be made of the same material as his nose on the real puppet. It's just that we don't see them too often and when we do they're moving about. IMO, Rizzo is fantastic. :shifty:

    not totally identical to Kermit the Frog of Sesame Street news, but still very cool

    I've always liked how Kermit's hat sat on his head. I'd love to see pics of eFX's hat from the side!

    I think EFX's Rizzo fingers could be missing the spray-flocking that I believe the actual poser has. It could be one of those touchy issues of figuring out how to keep that from rubbing off with use. Plus, the fluorescent lighting and flash photography aren't flattering. Even so, I'd buy him right then and there.

    You know, actually, I never thought he looked good in a top hat.

    Dont know how the real poser looks but i would prefer if the replica legs look more like the ones on the Palisades Action figure.
    On the pic they look to high attached and to far away from the main body, but ok if the real poser looks like that too it should be ok. I would like to see a pic of the real poser.

    These legs are not only correct, they are actually *better* than the poser or the puppet. Strange as that sounds.

    The reference I've seen shows the legs in an uneven state compared to the sturdy symmetry of the superb EFX poser. Go back and watch MTM or GMC again and you'll see the rat legs are really funky and not always the same in each shot. EFX Rizzo gets an A+ from me.

    Jamie is very correct. The real poser's legs joints just didn't cut it. You could see gaps between the body and the leg. I think there is a reason his jacket extended over the top of the hips. This Rizzo also has a symmetrical butt. Thats a big advancement over the reference pic.

    Anyone got pics of a real Rizzo poser to see the real deal?

    Oh man, Rizzo looks amazing! I need to put some money away for him!

    And I really hope they do plan on making Pepe. That would be a dream come true!

    It is strange that Henson and now Disney have A Rizzo poser but they dont seem to be taking advantage of it as there isnt hardly any full length photos of him.
    here is one I took at muppetfest, but he is small:
    And here is one from an internet search
