    I got the survey too after our epcot visit. I don't love him but he's a childhood memory for sure. When we went to epcot after it opened, I got a stuffed figment and LOVED him then. Now he's kind of creepy and since he has nothing associated to him outside of the park, nobody really knows him. I will say however, regardless of how one feels about Figment, his ride is in some serious need of an update. It's bad!!!

    I was in La Cava de Tequilla the first time I met Figment. She walked in and talked to me for a while, then taught me all about unsubstantiated scientific brain activity. No matter how much I pressed, she could not answer simple questions about the physics of tiny wings capable of flight. Eventually the bartender told me Figment had to go, and two nice security men with scratchy polyester shirts helped walk me back to the Beach Club. I will never forget my time with that soft sexy dragon.

    I think that it's cool that Figment is a original park character created just for Epcot. It made sense back when Epcot was not IP land to have a character/mascot around.

    But Figment himself? I think he's kind of creepy/ugly. I would like him better if he were cute like Mickey and the gang. I know looks aren't everything, but when he's all over the merchandise. . .

    I rate him a 6.

    Uhhhh...I guess a 5 out of ten, which means I could take him or leave him and his ride. My sister loves it however, so we do it. I guess it's back to smelling "skunk" for me again in December.:crazy2:

    I was going to say 0, but someone mentioned the awesome bathroom at the back of the building. So I will go with 0.5. Do NOT tell Kathy!!!!

    For 10 years or more before i EVER visited WDW, I collected Figments. I am obsessed. I make Kathy's love of Figment seem like she's uninterested. I always had people going to WDW bring me Figment trinkets. Then, when I finally got to go myself, I was horrified to discover Figment's decreased presence. I would like Figment to be the undisputed ruler of Epcot! Dress him in the different country's outfits, sell super sized stuffed Figs. I want him EVERYWHERE. I'm so scared he'll go away entirely! :figment::figment::figment:

    Not that I would do this, but all I can think is...blackmail material! ;)

    I really like Figment. He's a dragon and he's purple. I really don't need many more reasons. :)

    I'm going with 10. I enjoy Figment. He's part of Epcot history.

    My newest thought process is how to build a reasonably-sized Figment out of LEGO. :)
