    He still seems a little old to me. It's a nice upgrade from the original IMO.

    I hope it is so. However, as I said on the other HBG post, I believe when it happens. Fool me once, shame on you... fool me three years in a row, shame on me!

Too many false starts and rumors to count in past.

    Thank you HBG2 and Lonesome Ghost for the update!
    Keep us updated!

    I took another peek at the video and realized that maybe I should probably hold judgement until he gets installed. It's hard to determine his size and posture when he's high off the ground in "demo mode".

    They had him in the attic for overnight testing the other week, and no one seems to have noticed that he was there with a sheet over him for a whole day! Asleep at the switch, people? Anyway, that's why some of you noticed some shifting around of props.

    He was going to debut today, on the 44th Anny, but there were glitches, so they took him out and decided to display him at the D23 event while they were working on his motions. That's actually what all the odd moving and posing that you see in the videos have been about. He should be going into the attic soon.

    How the effect is going to work, I haven't a clue.
    Can someone Photoshop him into the spot so we can see what this would look like. He seems to be a bit too big to fit into that spot.

    To be fair the original HBG costume was basically a cloaked translucent raincoat. I will withhold my judgment until I see him in show context but regardless I am happy to see him return home after 44 years. I must admit that I am shocked that they managed to keep him hidden with a sheet considering how crazy this board went when what turned out to be the Reggie Portrait initially was thought to be him.

    Kudos to WDI for managing to elude Eagle-eyed fans in the digital age.

    He seems big because he's about a foot off the ground.

    Proof that they learned from the past and managed to find a way to make it happen without being obvious! Go WDI!

    My Disney-affiliated contact just confirmed HBG2's statements as TRUE. My fear now is that Disney might pull the plug or delay the installation, because they've been scooped by us. Disney has been known to switch gears in the past. But my insider friend said that the AA required too much company funding and manpower to be just a display piece for a convention floor.

    I am curious to see if they'll ever actually announce this or just up and do it sometime after Sunday. Dying to see him (sorry) in his natural environs but I am not optimistic enough to think they'll do it next week/that quickly before I arrive...

    Quick and dirty, and who knows how accurate an impression it gives, but what the hell, fwiw...

    My question too. We're only a few weeks away, aren't we? And the August 9 anniversary moment has passed now anyway, so it would seem strange to put him in now.

    They could include Old Hattie in Haunted Mansion Holiday. Why not? Just move him temporarily from the attic to the graveyard.

    HBG don't need no stinkin' anniversary. Put him back...NOW!
