i was just wondering if anyone else has a problem with their moxy's ears.

because they bend back or forward. is any way to make them stay straight up?

i was thinking maybe bathe her because apparently that makes them fluffier and plumper?

p.s. i have a little ugly, if that changes anything.

I have that problem with my 2 ft Moxy (as well as the ears on my 2 ft OX). Unfortunately, once the stuffing develops a 'bend' in it, there isn't much one can do to return the tautness. I've tried reworking the stuffing into the jointed area on my OX and that makes a bigger mess.

I got so frustrated with my first 2 ft. Moxy because of the ears that I gave her to my 6-year-old (who was so psyched to have her own 2 ft ugly). My 6-year-old decided that when the ears flop back, it makes Moxy look like she is running somewhere really fast, probably late to some party (perceptive kid...) and loves her more for that.

I ended up buying a 2nd 2-fter and put her pristine in my collection, wedging her between some other 2 footers to keep the ears up. The still flop over from their own weight so I have to keep repositioning them. Maybe they just aren't meant to stay upright...

ahh i'm glad i'm not the only one who is frustrated with them!

i think that i will buy a keychain moxy to carry around since she'd be small enough not to have her ears too bent in my pocketbook and just have my little ugly to sleep with, haha.

ty for the replies! :)

Why do babos have different looking teeth?

Also, i have a forum related question:

I am trying to post a picture for the ugly halloween costume contest. However, it says that i cannot post pictures unless i have been here for seven days and posted at least 10 posts to prevent spamming. I have been a member since may, and have exactly 10 posts (I didn't go on a lot), yet it still gives me this message.

Any help in the matter is appreciated.

I can answer both of those.

1) Because! (no really, it's just because. why do you have freckles, or the color of hair you have, or the shape of your nose? it's because that's how you came out.)

2) If I had to guess, I'd speculate that the KR server has to catch up with your activity today. Try posting your pics tomorrow.

I think was he/she means is babos have differnt teeth because with the G1 babo and G2 babo they have bigger bucked teeth but the newer Babos have tinyer less spaced out teeth.

Yup, I think that's exactlywhat the question meant. And the answer really is: because! I don't imagine David would say anything different.

(he can, of course, correct me if I'm wrong)

Sometimes as a company develops, slightly different fabrics may be used for availability reasons. Another reason could be that the pictures were taken with different lighting, or it just shows up different depending on the computer (happened to me twice).

I'm guessing the store gave you an item that had been returned, but the tag had been cut off and the employees hadn't noticed.

Today I went to my local store and to my suprise found some OLD uglydoll keycahins.
These keychains had it all the old tags, the looks, and the cuteness BUT I found something strange.... They didn't have looped tags It was a mystery....to me.
Does anyone know why this is.....David do you know why???

You know they could just be FAKE.
They probably cut open the part were the sewn tag is and took the sewn tag out and sewn it back.
And made a fake signed name.....
I HAVE NEVER SEEN THESE HANDMADES BEFORE :-k :-k

Why would they bother to sell fake uglies, when intheyellow is the new exclusive ugly source for Japan. Plus they are the only one to sell the UMA tengui.

Mmm no-one answered my other thread but I jsut found this so I will ask here!

Uglydoll vinyls, will the new characters become vinyl?

I've almost got the complete set of originals now bar Wedgehead and Babo (and the Uglydogs if they count). I'm gonna need some more to chase, I especially want to see a vinyl Moxy!

I think that's pretty much a definite no. Critterbox (the company that made the original Uglys) is no longer in consideration. Plus, I think I remember David saying that the movement of the Uglyverse is away from vinyl (and remember, Kaiju/UMA/Spider-boom/Choco+Minty aren't actually Uglys).

Blue Ox= This was a Kidrobot exclusive.... I dunno, ask Scandell?
SUPER 7 Icebat= Hmmmm.... I got it: I dunno!
Handmades... These deserve a paragraph!

Handmades cannot be priced. Each is uniquely special, and specially unique (this does make a troublesome space-time vortex, but don't worry, Jeero's got it all figured out *thumbs up*). When bought at a convention, like Uglycon, anywhere from 30$ (Mini Uglyworm) to 70$ (Most convention pedigrees) to 300$ (Giant Uglyworm). There are some, like Picky, that will, most likely, never be sold. Some, like Captain Babo (who I am the proud, proud owner of) are not unique like Picky, Nadi, and Smartypants, but instead popular, making them quite valuable. As I might have said somewhere in that chaotic mess of logic and language, Pedigrees and Handmades each have their own unique price, if sold at all...


CHEERS!!! (Special cheer to Scandell, because I am directing a torrent of questions to him... ALL PART OF MY PLAN TO TAKE OVER THE UGLY FORUMS!!! BWAHAHA!!!!)
... did I say that out loud... :-& :-$ 8-[
