I’ve always wondered what happened to the scaffolding Egyptian. It really made no sense to remove him since they never reused him like they did with the Gutenberg press boy and the network ops lady. It would be nice to see him added back.

Apparently this figure had no animation; the arm and chisel were attached to a rod in the pillar that produced the motion. The motor in the pillar was long broken and the figure lifeless. It was decided to remove it to focus guests attention on the new mural behind the paper mashing man and the updated Egyptian throne room.
