    To confuse things even more, lol, are you sure Esdevium aquired PopCo, and isn't just sharing what was known as "Cards Inc" with Corgi International? As i just found this dated May 20th from an industry website -

    http://www.licensemag.com/licensema...Article/detail/517641?contextCategoryId=10030

    This would suggest Popco is still part of Corgi International, and that Popco/Master Replicas has merged and is now PopCo Entertainment. Also (if the articles correct as of 3 days ago) the positive news is that Popco will carry on producing Master Replicas licenses although it doesn't mention Muppets.

    I dont know what to think.It appears PopCo is the new name for Corgi International, as I mentioned earlier.So Esdevium dont own PopCo, just Cards,Inc.But they seemed to be linked? I am going now as I have a headache and a red face!LOL.

    LOL, me too. Not sure how this will affect the Muppet license, or if there is any restructuring at what is/was Master Replicas, if it all - i'd take nothing for certain until we hear something specific.

    Well it appears we're getting the bear and anything after that (the pig) is suspect at this time. I'd feel complete with Fozzie, but really want the pig.

    Hey Travis:
    I know you're not showing prototype pictures of Fozzie at this time (and I really understand why that could be) but could you share what some of the trouble areas are on him? I'm thinking the fur is the main issue, maybe some facial ratio tweaks? It's at least cool hearing about it. Oh and will the box art reflect Master Replicas' or Corgi's logo?

    Thanks. We appreciate all you do for Muppet crazies (as we count you as one of em...er...us). :o

    It has something to do with the under head structure of Fozzie as Terry had to send another guide on that.

    Heres a song For Travis:

    You'll make us happy
    When you come back here
    To tell us news on our Fozzie Bear

    We'll be excited
    'Cause he'll be with the other three

    You'll make us happy
    to give us anything
    Throw us a bone or
    A rubber chicken

    You'll make us happy, if you can come back please....:)

    Hope you all like...it was quick.

    :) Travis

    Posting in this thread adds twenty minutes to your life! (And not "brushing your teeth" minutes...like really fun minutes with beer and pizza.)

    Hey, it's worth a try! ;)

    Hey all-

    Once again, here I am WAAAAY late in posting anything. But, I am leaving for a nice 9-day vacation (which frankly is LONG overdue) and I didn't want to make you guys wait another week and a half for an update.

    Except that, sadly, there's not update to give.

    Fozzie is still in the works -- but due to the complicated nature of the product, the vendor we had HOPED to use has passed on the project. And so, we're shopping for a new vendor... which has set the project back a bit. We're probably looking at Spring 2009 now. Not much more we can do -- the vendor we had hoped to use took a crack at a prototype, but found it too difficult, and respectfully passed.

    Nothing else to add at this point. Sorry that I've been away so long, but I promise I will pop in and let you know if and when things progress.

    How's everything else going for y'all? ;)

    Couple of quick notes:


    Davina - where are the cookies I was promised? :o

    muppetguy - Love the song...but don't give up your day job. Unless your day job is lyricist. :)

    Reevz1977 - Of COURSE I still like you... except for Blinky_Fish. He creeps me out.

    Talk to you all soon(ish)-

    T
