    Dont know if this is slightly off topic - but i've recently purchased an animal Muppet Replica. I know it should have an edition number (50 of 2500 for example), but mine actually has 'Artist proof' in the space where it should say edition number. Is this a rare animal?

    I have one of those. not really so rare. but then again I dont know exactly how many proofs were made for retailers to display.

    OK thanks, so I'm guessing its probably pretty rare compared to the large edition produced.

    Wanted to post some pictures of our Animal Photo Puppet.
    I say our because I bought him for my Wife for her birthday.
    I knew I wanted to display him with a drum set.
    I found a set at Toys R Us made by First Act that was the perfect size, only it was $100. Didn't really want to spend that if I didn't have to. I looked on craigslist and found one for $20. Much better. Not to mention it was used so the drums show signs of being played. The set was blue and I didn't like that. So I bought some Orange Glittery adhesive backed Vinyl on ebay. While I was waiting I got out the paint and painted the mouth design on the Bass drum. Out of all the drum logos I've seen, I like this one the best. Vinyl showed up today and I was able to finish the drum set. I will add a few more drums to the set to make it more full and some more cymbals too(got to have a hi-hat). The pedestals in the picture are temporary. It is
    3 put together. I will make a one piece pedestal for him.
    But this is just to show pics.
    I haven't done anything to Animal yet.
    This is straight out of the box. I will fix the hair,eyes, and make a spiked collar, wrist and ankle cuffs.
    Let me know what you think so far.
    Thanks!

    Cool pics! From what little of them I can see.
    Why are they sooo small? You can hardly see them, can you make them larger?
    Pleeeeease...

    If someone can tell me how to post larger pictures, I'd be more than happy to.

    Now that's better! I can't wait to see it with more drums added.

    did yours come with that paint job or did you customize? we have a little drum set for ours that we picked up at walmart a while back, but it's not nearly as cool looking :) (haven't had time to get around to doing anything to it...)

    I painted the Mouth on the bass drum and covered the drums with Orange sparkly Sticker material.

    Hello Muppet Fans.

    Been lurking for a while. Thought I'd share a pic of my MR Animal.

    http://img806.imageshack.us/img806/8784/animal.jpg

    Not customised much. Coloured his eyelids black with permanent marker and added $8 of plastic chain which I sprayed silver. Used hair wax to get his mop under control. I was going to buy a collar from someone here, but... well... you know. ;)

    The toy drums were only $30. The orange hologram-glitter vinyl cost $13 on the ebays. Knocked up the EM logo on my Mac and had it printed and laminated at OfficeWorks for $20. Umm... that's all folks!

    Going to get some better shots soon!

    The time was right and all the stars were aligned! It also helped I found some wicked good deals online for these 2.

    Photos taken with my iPhone - http://s1138.photobucket.com/albums/...uppets_Puppets

    Studio shots to come once I slow down a bit. Summertime is busy for a photographer in Michigan!

    Any good pose ideas for a photoshoot?

    The collar he made out of a molded plastic, (he's a prop designer by trade) and the tongue I believe he just hand sculpted out of foam.

    Check out the puppetry forums for more info on where to find that kind of stuff...

    BoomerangFish: Some people are fortunate and talented enough to be able to build their own puppets which is what you are seeing there, along with all of the Gluvet puppets on that site.
    the rest of us just have to sit back and try not to drool too much over them :)

    Oh that's very cool indeed! I make props as well (mainly for a living) but I also make them for fun. My most current project is making a screen accurate proton pack.
