Get a "Smile Time" Puppet of your very own!

Ben first told me about the sale of "Smile Time" prop replicas from a thread he picked up on while parusing SG. "Smile Time" is in reference to a season five episode of Angel where the ensouled vampire is mystically transformed into a puppet while investigating an evil children's show.

Many genre web shops and of course eBay, have the ST Puppet for sale. Prices seem to range from $39.99 to $50 for the 1/2 scale replica with faux leather costuming.

Here's the manufactures press release:

“SMILE TIME” ANGEL PUPPET HALF-SCALE REPLICA, A Diamond Select Release! From the imagination of series creator Joss Whedon came one of the funniest episodes in Buffy or Angel’s history, “Smile Time,” in which the brooding and ever-serious vampire with a soul was transformed into a puppet! This plush replica measures just over 21” high and is an exact ½-scale version of the prop puppet used in the episode. Featuring a faux leather coat, boots and a mouth that opens and closes (for that full puppet brooding effect!), “Smile Time” Angel is ready to come home with you and protect your teddy bears from the creatures that go bump in the night! “Smile Time” Angel comes packaged in deluxe window box packaging and will only be available in specialty market outlets. "
In stores March 2005.
Plush Replica $50.00

Froogle can help you out if your looking for one.

On that note, just a reminder that Season Five of Angel comes to DVD on Tuesday (2.15).
