Don't worry, it's a only the prototype. The finished version (if Disney give it the go ahead) will be made of something much more durable.

Ravage...I'm confused :confused: ...I though scott foam was supposed to be the "better" foam - I mean I realize that everything will eventually disintegrate, but is there a better foam to use than scott foam? Thanks for the help!!

LOL, that was hilariously blunt. Love it.

I agree with MisterSuperstar, just the proto made with the real stuff. I'm sure they'll use something else that only looks like foam for his mouth and nose. Don't have any idea what, but I'm not worried.

Cheers!

No , but since these are display pieces, if it were to be made from Scott Foam(or Reticulated poly foam, ) they would constantly be exposed to Sunliight,Oxygen,and dust ,as well as other elements, so that give it about 7 To 8 years of shelf life
