Little Nigel, as we call him, isn't 5ft long. He's about the size of a cat or a small dog. He's not robotic or remote controlled. He's a simple rod puppet. I don't know his exact worth, but I know that what's been reported was grossly inflated. Even the info that we 'opened on Friday night' in Guadalajara was incorrect. We opened on Wednesday night. None of us even know who this "spokesperson" Karla Arroyo is.
Here's a pic of Nigel's twin brother, Cedric:
