Fraggle Rock Doozer Toys by TADO

My love for Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock runs deep, and I always kinda related to the little, green, workaholic duders known as Doozers. As part of Gallery Nucleus’ The Lovers, The Dreamers and Me Henson tribute exhibition, TADO created four life-sized Doozers in wood, paper mache and clay. The Fraggle Rock Doozer toys are currently for sale through the Gallery Nucleus website for $275-$300 each. So cute!
Click through for a special bonus Fraggle convergence: I ran into Red Fraggle at our local Open Mic Night. It was like a scene from 8 Mile all up in there! Don’t mess with the gingers!
I’m a HUGE Fraggle Rock fan also, and although I love the idea I am pretty underwhelmed by these to say the least. Not a very proper likeness and not really abstract enough to claim that route. These look like plush in the sense that the details of the faces are not really all there. Sorry to be a Gorg, but it is my honest opinion (especially at this price point, and from an artist whom I really like).
