hey there, i'm glad u like piggy so far.... she still needs alot of work, i have cut and curled her hair since that photo and sh looks much better. As far as other replicas go i have considered and cookie and rowlf but i am still experimenting on furs etc, can't say I have ever thought of making a scooter - he was never one that i connected with. I am also currently working on a new Kermit.....but i am also working on my client orders.... so i had better get back to it , cheers

We should have a puppet-replica-play-off between Keeeermit and the guy selling his stuff on e-bay and Amazon for WAYYY too much money! :smile:

(I choose Keeermit's).

I have to defend MR's replicas, though. They are fantastic and beautiful! If they were making puppets, I would definitely want them to talk to Keeermit as well as Terry, who does a terrific job on the Muppet MR Prototypes!

I asked Jarrod this question before, but he doesn't seem to keen on sharing info, but I'll ask again any way. For Gonzo's face, it looks like carved reticulated foam. Could you be generous enough to share where you are able to find the foam in large enough blocks to carve? My partner and I have made some replicas, but we used sheet foam for Gonzo's face since we couldn't locate large cubes of reticulated foam.

hi there,glad you like my replicas - I am still working on my Piggy but also started a new Fozzie as I wasnt overly happy with my other one.:embarrassed:

I order my blocks of reticulated foam in from my local foam store - it usually needs to be ordered in full sheets ( like the size of a mattress) and its more than a couple of hundred dollars. Look around a foam shop may have off-cuts :smile:
