A delightful effect, I got my first version from Mephisto in Belgium in about 1970. In that land he was called Pietje Grotebol, meaning Peter, large head. Later I also got Supreme's version.
Anyway, what I would like to see as an improvement in this prop is the following. Its very angle sensitive.When the head is 'in position' it should 'blend' with colouring on the 'back' of the prop..........painted clothes etc. In that way should the back of the prop be spotted it will look normal. Calling talented artists..........

A better solution would be to make the body hollow and the head pop up from inside the body.

Or cover the 'back of the head' with thin black ( matching the colour of the back of Freddie) material.surreptitiously removed before the release
