AUGH! ADORABLE!

He looks great. The goggles and the general fluffyness gives the impression that he's about to set out into frigid air currents.

Love him.

Griffons are one of the coolest mythological creatures and giving it goggles only makes it better. Kinda wish you hadn't used rabbit fur though (poor bunny)

I have one very similar to this one that has a moving beak, plus the head turns sideways and goes up and down. Very realistic moves. All cable operated. It comes sitting on a "throne", as if it were royalty. One of its claws moves, and I think its tail, too. Only $600.

I will not squeal... No matter how tempting it is. Griffins and steampunk... Hehehe, two of my favourite things. Are He has an adorable face, and the goggles just make him all the better. :)

That thing is wicked, can you make its beak open and close?

That particular one doesn't open her beak, but her mate does (though he doesn't wear goggles). I should make a short video for youtube. Hmmm, now you got me thinking!

If you haven't made a video yet of your work, I strongly encourage it. I love this piece and would be thrilled to see it in action!
