Fans of Alan Partridge have started a petition to try to make sure his statue gets a permanent home in Norwich.
went on display outside The Forum in Norwich but has now been removed.
Sculptor Mr Fulcher said he had received several requests to buy Alan, but would prefer it if he was put on public display in the city.
Norwich City Council said it had no plans to purchase the tribute.
Mr Fulcher and Mr Dutton, who are both from Norwich, work in the film industry and created their “gift to Norwich” between work commitments over the past three years.
“We would love for it to be a permanent fixture and are really waiting for the people of Norwich to decide,” Mr Fulcher added.
The brass and resin statue mounted on a wooden plinth would have to be recast if it was to be placed outdoors permanently, at a cost of about £15,000 Mr Fulcher said.
Coogan first appeared as the Norwich-based sports presenter on BBC Radio 4’s On the Hour.
The character moved on to television with programmes including The Day Today, Knowing Me Knowing You and I’m Alan Partridge.
This summer Coogan resumed the role of Partridge for an 18-part podcast series.
Coogan said he would also be returning to BBC TV “at some point next year” and would “try to find a way of working the statue in”.
