    ^ Is it possible that this is an authentic Fozzie bear?
    OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! I WOULD LOVE TO OWN MY OWN FOZZE BEAR.
    But... isn't 4,500 kinda cheap for it? I wanna get it, but I have a feeling it will go WAAAAY over 4,500. Can someone tell me if they think I should bid on it? Please click the link above and tell me! I think it would go for 10,000 at least and I'm pretty sure I would pay that much to hold it in my very own hands. Obviously, you're talking to a super duper Muppets fan here! Anyway, what do you guys think??

    Looks real to me. The outfit is what fozzie is wearing in a still photo used in the trading card set and the uk phone card set. It looks like a photo puppet and not a puppet. The label says photo muppet mmII which was the temp name of the great muppet caper so maybe he's from 1980-1!!

    Great item.

    Wow! Didn't they build the photo Muppets in the Muppet Workshop in NYC, right alongside the Muppet puppets? The tag does read "made in the U.S." What a find!

    His clothing looks like he could have been made for either Rocky Mountain Holiday promo shots, or maybe for one of the Viewmaster reel series (which are extremely awesome!). The rips and tears shouldn't be a problem for the high bidder, minor stuff. The inner damage they mentioned (probably foam deterioration) could be more involved, but Fozzie's definitely worth it! Find or make him a hat and tie (or with his clothing, a tie probably isn't necessary), and he'd be perfect! :D

    Good luck!
    :)

    EDIT: Whoops! Didn't see that Chris already stated that he's from a trading card set. Very cool!

    falseintensity you can spend the 4500? I hope you get it. Looks like you justed posted to your competition as it looks like Muppetfan123 is the high bidder (or maybe it's not him). I wish I could spend that much.

    Are you bidding against him? Just curious if you decided to bid anyway since you said you don't know if you can trust it.

    Whoever wins, post more pics!!!

    Ha thanks guys!
    Seems to be legitimate, so happy!
    Whoever got that is a lucky fellow! Or lady of course.
    Waiting to put my bid in towards the end.
    Gotta work 2 jobs if I wanna afford that, haha!

    They used the same photo for the phonecard, but they reversed the image to make it look different.
  13. Kermieuk

    Kermieuk Well-Known Member

    They certainly did. I have the phone cards to. Fozzie also wears this in a group line up with sunglasses also used on the trading cards and a bt phone card.

    I wonder if this auction will go right through.Previously, there was a Kermit and a Fozzie and they were both stopped.

    This is amazing. Too bad this is something I can't afford. I just hope a true Muppet fan wins this and takes good care of it, and restores it. Beautiful!

    Right? I mean it's worth a shot putting a bid in though. If I can't get it, I would love for Fozzie to go to a safe and loving home =)
