    I would think the Piggy body would be very difficult

    Agreed... especially with it's odd shape and plump legs to go with it...

    They probably didn't get that far with Piggy yet I bet since she s not due till the middle of next year. They got other licenses and things being made in China so this is taking there time at the moment. You go to remember that this team is small and not a big company. Plus they are getting ready for Rizzo's pre-order, working on Kermit next, and other props all at the same time.

    Do we know if they have plans for any other Muppet products besides the replicas?

    There are no plans for other Muppet products besides the replicas, as that is all that their licence allows.

    Plus, they have to see how the first two are selling, before outlaying too much costs down the track.

    Man, it's taking a while to hear about costs. I just hope it doesn't get put-off again. :shifty:

    in some ways i kind of hope it does, just so i have more time to gather money, what with being skint an' all, and with Christmas coming up I have even less money. On the flipside however, I might be able to ask for him as my only present from the rents if he's not much more than 300 and is announced soon.

    i'm with you, right now, delays are a good thing as far as my budget goes. with hubby on deployment, and my summer of medical tests to figure out what odd thing was wrong with me now... budget shrank a very good deal and this sort of thing is right out the window right now for a few more months anyway... any $ we do save has to stay in savings for actual emergencies and medical bills..

    Sorry to hear about your health and financial problems,Davina, and I hope things get better for you soon.
    I dare say that it will probably be a couple of months by the time Rizzo is made and shipped to eFX's warehouse, so after a small deposit, we will have a couple of more months to save.

    thanks, and yes, we finally figured out the source of all my problems.. severe sleep apnea.. apparently never getting more then about 30 seconds of sleep at a time can do very very nasty things to you.. :) but now with a few meds (which are hopefully temporary..) and sleeping with a mask to keep airways actually open so i can actually sleep without waking myself up every 30 seconds or so to gasp for air.. i am at last on the mend (yay!) and hubby should be home in a little over a month (double yay) just in time for the holidays and all the snow shoveling :)

    Anybody heard from Bryan or anybody at eFX since late last month? I havent had replies to recent emails and the office phone is only on voice mail.

    Nothing yet...I haven't heard anything from him as of yet. I can try and send him a PM at RS and see if he will respond. He must be REALLY busy!

    Just spoke to Bryan.The hold up with Rizzo is that they are still trying to source the correct fur.Pre order now is likely to be late this month or early next month.There will be a payment plan available, most likely $100 deposit and the balance divided by two equal payments.

    $100 deposit then two payments...starting to sound expensive. I am wondering how much it is going to be. But excited! :shifty:

    unclematt Well-Known Member

    At least the payment plan will make it a little bit affordable.

    Sorry to be a "stranger" lately, but we have been really busy launching the new website and our new Star Trek license. We are constantly updating the website with new assets, since there is so much more information that we had to upload to the new site. So, check back to the website from time to time and you may see something new!

    Thanks!

    Bryan

    Okay, here's my guess based on absolutely nothing...

    A $100 deposit plus two $150 payments.

    Anyone else want to try and we'll see who comes closest?

    :p
