    Re: Hatbox Ghost Animatronic featured at D23!

    Rumor has it that this is just a display piece. That being said, there is still hope that the "real" HBG may appear again in his proper place after HMH is over this year... but I ain't holding my breath.

    Really, heís not. He was a failed effect that was removed because it didnít work right. It got elevated to cult status on internet forums due to the mystery of it. Personally, if the effect didnít work Iím glad it was removed. Leaving it in would have lessened the quality of the attraction, not added to it.

    I hate to be a wet blanket, but DL will soon be gearing up for the holidays and HM is scheduled to be closed on 8/26 for the Jack Skellingrton overlay. I wouldn't expect to see our beloved hat box ghost return until January when the HM is resturned to normal.

    Maybe its just me but since that is an A100 it would be pretty difficult to make his head disappear convincingly. I think the only way to make it work would be to do a peppers ghost effect. With that said I don't think there is room to do a PG in the attic, is there?

    As I said in another thread it's never too early for our yearly HBG is returning rumor thread. It's good to see him though. I wouldn't judge the final product based on what's here since the lighting isn't what it would be in the attraction and it;s probably not a finished version. I hope he returns but someone else already mentioned it let's see him return in 2015 for 60!

    Okay, regardless of how close he looks to the original or not, just be grateful and happy that he's potentially coming back, or the fact that someone took the time to build an animatronic. I'll welcome his addition whether he looks this way or not.

    Haunted Mansion Hatbox Ghost animatronic explained at the 2013 D23 Expo - YouTube
    Here's a better look at him with some insight from the Imagineers. Kind of seems like they just slapped together from an existing AA to me. Seems kind of misleading.

    If this is truly the animatronic that ends up in the Mansion, why would Disney think it's a good idea to preview him in a brighly lit convention center with his main effect not working?

    He looks freaking amazing. I might sob like a little baby if Mr. HBG actually is installed back into the mansion. God I am such a HM nerd.
