Okay...any other questions at this point, or are you all just ready to order? We have a big week here with some new electronics coming in to test... I should have a report soon.

Question: I understand that the Toucan weights only around 4 pounds, the stand about 7 pounds. How much does the chimp weigh? Power seat weight?
I am asking because I will ship this via Fedex or UPS.

Hmmm, new electronics? Seems the price will be getting higher.

I am ready to order Steve. The money has been ready since day 1.

The new electronics will not raise the price... I'll get the weights soon. Are you interested in the weight of the protective case also?

Thanks Steve. I won't be getting a protective case because I make my own ATA cases out of wood and fiberglass myself. Besides, that would add up to the shipping costs.

A magic Chimp without the protective case, but with a power seat is approx 27 lbs., That includes the Chimp, powerseat, stand, adapter and the transmitter. It depends how much extra boxing it in well, will add to it.

Ha! Yeah we'll have a Hands-Free Duck too... and I bet Dave Allen buys it! He's got almost everything we've made. He sent me a note after seeing Louis' Toucan in the UK last week. Very excited.

I would love an RC Toucan on stage with me, harassing my hard figures.....I have all sortsa spiels in mind, with my Marshall style figures shootin' out stuff..

"Hey Tuki, I absolutely LOVE Toucans...I hear they taste just like chicken baked with a Fruit Loop Glaze... while the Toucan comes back with stuff like "Yeah, at least I don't have to have a hand up my wazoo to make me talk, and you sure as all heck never saw a Toucan on the Twilight Zone, or working with Anthony Hopkins..."

"Yeah, but I bet you never saw Ann Margaret neeked..."

I am torn between putting in an order for a new one now, or holding tight and watching the used market over the next few months hoping some broke vent out there decides to send his Remote Control Toucan "down the river"....

Steve,

It's great that you take the time to respond to people on this list, I'm sure this is one of the reasons you have such a good reputation at having great customer service.

I sent you a PM.
