Behind the closed doors of the laboratory the wizards are furiously working on adding some amazing secret new features to animated creatures..features for creatures for magicians and teachers...outside the door the crowd grows restless holding torches yelling, "We want prices, we want prices!"

Mr. Axtell slowly comes out closing the door behind him, and nervously tries to explain that we aren't ready just yet to tell the final price because the design concepts are not final, but it will be worth waiting for....save around $5,000 and you will be okay... Not good enough for the crowd...they throw him aside, and break open the door....and rush in. Suddenly the crowd stops, silent. Staring in disbelief at what they find.

There is far more going on inside than anyone imagined. Technicians and elves... Boiling cauldrons & test tubes, exotic electronics, multiple computers, programmers & engineers in Dallas, Santa Barbara and Ventura working, drawings all over the walls, latex body parts scattered all over the tables...technicians studying dusty manuals and documenting experiments...sewers making patterns and duplicating bodies....and then someone in the crowd looks over to Axtell's desk and sees something in a drawer left slighly open....could it be? The secret plans...

(to be continued)

My hope is to be able to reveal the final plan & prices by February 1 and begin taking orders, however we can't rush the development going on. I hesitated releasing our plans so early because I know how frustrating it can be to wait, but the value of your input made it worth doing. You have all been so helpful and the rewards for that will become known soon. Hang in there....we are working hard and fast on this!

Steve -
That was awesome! I thought the toucan was amazing - the chimp is way beyond that. Your back order list is going to be huge! Very exciting, thanks for the glimpse...

Wow, the head movements are fantastic! I didn't expect that. Hmmm, now I'm confused if I should either get a bird or people puppet or both?

Lou.....DUH! Both of course! Ha! Actually we do plan to offer a special price if you get more than one. I do imagine that there will be performers on stage with several of them at once....

A clown with circus animals... A one man 3 ring animatronic circus!

A singer with an animatronic back up band!

An Animal Trainer with several animals all doing tricks and playing tricks on him!

A magician with rabbits popping up everywhere.... you think it's the same rabbit but it's moving to fast! Stage left disappears - Stage Right appears - back & forth...then finally both! Then 3 and 4 and then they sing and take over his show for the big finally and they all (including the Magician) take a bow!

Holy smoke, Steve, the actions on that monkey are simply incredible - I'm definitely going to pull out all the stops to make a purchase.
I get bookings mainly because of a duck puppet I use ( which, as a puppet, looks like nothing on earth - ask Magic Dave Allen, he's seen it!).
When, NOT IF, I have one of your new generation puppets it will re-vitalise my whole market.
As tacrowl says, your backorder list is going to overwhelming.

All the more animatronic power to your elbow.

Great hearing from you Dave...the elephant looks great in the ava.... I love "New Generation Puppets" I'll have to quote you. I'm hearing a lot of folks say that it will re-vitalize the market and their shows.....how wonderful that is! I love that kind of innovation! Yes!

Steve,
Only the two? How long will it be before you will take custom orders for the mechanisms with your other puppets? (I assume the head motion with the chimp is different than the bird?) I'd love to purchase, but before I spend I'd want to make certain the character is right for me - rather than have an expensive puppet for sale.

We are launching the Toucan and Chimp first. Then we'll start offering others as we go. This is just for starters....no worries. We will do a Parrot, Dragon, etc. etc. etc. Ultimately any puppet in our line could be ordered as a Hands-Free. It just will take longer and we have to crawl before we can run.
