    Please tell me they're re-purposing all of them somehow? The thought of losing such a giant cast of AAs is killing me.

    I imagine the Wicked Witch will wind up in the Archives, as she's such an important figure in the history of the medium.

    Just a thought. Will the Wicked Witch become the new Redhead?

    No, new redhead should have a similar ROM as the old one.

    I hope they save the Ellen Ripley animatronic. At least for educational purposes on how not to build an animatronic...

    I certainly hope they can re-use The Wicked Witch since that was a full articulated AA with great motion. But the rest? Ripley only turned her head. Tarzan was a mannequin on a stick. The rest had limited motion with just one or two joints moving and really old and dated facial expressions.

    Let's not think anywhere near the majority of AAs in this attraction are suitable for a new, state of the art attraction. After a few decades, servos and pistons and whatevers are no longer serviceable. A good portion will be trashed. At least, I hope so, since what was there is barely usable as a store-front mannequin.

    Central Shops is the main WDW workshop in the North Service area behind Magic Kingdom.

    Yes, I think this thread needs to get back on topic.

    Maybe it's time to wrap up the thread then?

    The discussion came from a few pages ago regarding the GMR being an icon or not, and what the icon really was.

    Aside from a few pics of where the stuff inside has ended up, it's been "off-topic" for a good 50 pages now. Everything from SWL, to if Main Street USA is "American" or not and everything in between.

    Well, if no one has anything to add pertaining to the topic, they should stop posting and it will wind down without being locked.

    If people have nothing to add pertaining to the topic, they should just not post and the thread will wind down all by itself.

    I'm pretty sure the rope swinging pirate in DLP's Pirates was a Tarzan mold. Since they can't seem to ever leave Pirates alone, maybe he'll be reused in that way?

    That wasn't an animatronic. It was a dummy with a head that swiveled back and forth ;)

    That makes the scene even creepier. Imagine if they had updated the ride for 2017 to It with Pennywise the Dancing Clown explaining to guests--by name--that they'll float, too.

    The place were things are built, repaired, re-proposed, repainted or left to collect dust. It used to be on the backstage tour, don't know if it still is.

    Just saying I would love Judy Garland, and the lion, tin man and the scarecrow. but I would die to have the Judy AA.
