    Bringing MossMan back to life

    Got this poor guy on Ebay for $5 bucks - was my childhood favorite so I put some time and money into bringing him back and wanted to post the transformation.

    Now to find a beat up Panthor to make a custom cat for MossMan. I also want to re-flock my other Panthor purple since he also deserves some love and needs it.

    What was your process?

    Strip it with GooGone

    Remove the old legs

    Repair the old legs (instructions commonly found online with eye hooks and O rings)

    I let him air out a few weeks because of the lingering GooGone smell

    Took off arms and head

    Taped off face, belt, bottom of feet

    Sprayed with lightweight adhesive

    Matted down flock - I wanted the flock to stand up but I got impatient and tried to put him back together which instantly matted it down. Individual pieces would need to dry for a long time before you could put it back together without matting down the flock.
    J-DUBYA!!

    LOL well I am looking at Ebay and here's one that I am sure the seller would take an offer of $5-$7 bucks - needs a lot of work but those are the best ones! You will spend about $20-$30 in parts and supplies to do the job correctly.
