    There is Fasching in Germany at the moment (carnival). The Gorn mask is the right thing for @StefanM or @rhubarbodendron to wear.
    As to me: I prefer my Ferengi in a Gorilla costume....:D

    As long as it doesn't blink I'll be happy.

    Accessed the online store where it can pre-ordered. There are some nearly profile views there. Looks pretty darn close. Arguably closer than the version that's been advertised for the last several years. (It was used when MythBusrers tested the bamboo cannon depicted in "Arena".) The general shape and ol9ve hues more closely match Wah Chang's original design.

    Of course, what was photograph was likely a "showcase" edition meant to entice the buyer. I'd prefer to see a "production run" item before committing. I also wonder how thick is the rubber? Will it maintain its shape or will the extended jaw possibly deform under its own weight? I've seen some elaborate dragon masks that hold their shape quite well, but that does not guarantee this product will do the same.

    It certainly looks promising, but I'm taking that proverbial "grain of salt".

    $50, but they won't let me wear it at work. I don't think so.
