So I'm not the only person to have thought that Nosepass was just a weird head? THANK YOU! Nice article. I love reading these. Poisson14 02:06, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

I always thought Probopass looked like Groucho Marx, to be honest. Vhazhiphor 05:24, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

"Mini-noses"

I figured those were just a reference to the bird man, and possibly to the four cardinal directions together with the main nose.PLA 08:14, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Wooly Probobass?

While some still fervently believe Probopass is based on Mr. Potatohead, I do think it has a connection to another classic toy. I've always suspected that Wooly Willy, the magnetic toy invented in 1955 where iron filings were used to imitate facial hair on a bald face, was the source of Probopass' trademark mustache. What's your opinion on this? Precambrian86 02:54, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Mini-Noses

I suspect that the Mini-Noses was inspired in these drawings: http://imgur.com/E0OykRI

I think that the Moais have those birds on their backs. Also, if you look at Probopass from above, the Pukao, the nose and the mini-noses form a wind rose: http://imgur.com/Xk2ssQZ

It's a shame that Probopass is so despised. It is a great design with a great story behind it... If you see relevant my message, could you edit this article? Thanks for reading me! --CaptainBlueOlimar (talk) 18:41, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
