    And the best part about the Gizmo Furby was it could communicate with Reply

    #8 CHALLENGER: Hey, I also have the interactive Yoda Furby in the basement too. Together, we can realize your dream!

    What, they didn’t want to pay Jerry Goldsmith the rights to have him hum the actual Gizmo theme?

    Captcha phrase: Dance topping!

    @Kurtmac: Oh hot damn! I’m going to favorite this thread, and if you could post a link to video if/when you do this I would be most pleased. Have you ever set them up before?

    @Challenger: I don’t remember, but I’d have been crazy not to have tried it. I’ve got to get back to my dad’s house where they are, dust them off and make some history. Perhaps I can make the Gizmo furby hold the lightsaber, and Yoda furby will teach him how to use it. Then we will all be doomed.

    @#2: Actually, the Gizmo Furby already existed in the late 90s. http://www.mimitchi.com/html/fgizmo.htm

    I have one in the basement somewhere, and at its core it was a Furby, and interacted with other Furbies, but had all the Mogwai sounds and whatnot. Apparently a hard-to-find collectors item now, so it may be time for me dust mine off and hit up eBay.
