Not sure why there've been no Mupdates in three years time... But a question I have, is there any Palisades or DST Muppet figure that could be viably customized into a figure of Hilda the Wardrobe Lady? If not, that's okay, just curious. :shifty: :crazy: :zany:
I think Blue Frackle has the best option of Bunsen. On the plus side: eye glasses, both are live hand characters so the silhouette is similar, his lab coat could be repainted to match her frock somewhat. Minuses: his head shape is much rounder, his nose vs her lack of one and his baldness vs her hair. In the past I have seen some very impressive customs so if it was someone skilled I think they could tackle the hair and the repainting. Leaving just his big ol' honeydew shaped head. If one was OK with a close (ish) match then I think it could work.

2nd option but more complicated. Bunsen's head on the Newsman's body. Repaints of the outfit of course needed and the same custom work to the head but maybe it wouldn't look like a pale Bunsen in a wig if the body was not a lab coat?

Thanks guys. Not that I'll ever make them, and I'm going off of my Palisades collection with additions from the DST line (though all I know of the line is the discrepancy in height making the DST line shorter than Palisades), but I have this fully expansive mental image of using as many characters as possible to fill up...

The Muppety World of :crazy: Potter.

And yes, I thought :confused: would be the natural choice for Hilda.

Sounds like a fun project.
