Oh, I see. Very interesting.
What's weird about that set is that although they built UP and showed us the full scale of the dressing rooms... but they neglected the corridor that went past the staircase and had the beige brick wall and the odd clock... i think it led to the commisary ... also kermit used to have that odd angled desk there in the first couple seasons...
I would imagine they didn't include that because it isn't as commonly seen as well as the fact that it really doesn't mesh well with the portion of the backstage they made. The color difference would look a bit odd, and besides, the playset is big enough to get into packaging as it is.
HAHA...i was talking about the movie set not the toy...
for them to go through all the trouble of building that huge set and yet have it not conform to the shows actual set was weird to me...
and in season 1 and 2 kermit is at that back desk more than he is at the "intercom" desk directly beside the stage
That is true, you would think that to come up with this elaborate design, you would think that they would add some important stuff like that.
I want a backstage playset.
I've owned three Backstage playets, one of which was unopened, and I don't recall any of them coming with an instruction sheet.
The playset never came with instructions. But there were some fanmade ones online at one point. It appears that they've disappeared, however.
You're right, but Palisades posted pictures and information on their website when it first came out.
ooh lucky! I hope you are able to find the instructions!
Where did you get it and how much $$??
Aww, I sorry.
I was actually able to snag it off of eBay for $450.00.
Oh man, that's nearly a month's rent haha. I can't even believe I passed up the chance to buy this playset when it came out - mind you, I was around 14 or 15 at time. I'd jumped into the line at Series 5 and bought every figure until Series 9 from my local comic shop. And I lived out in the middle of nowhere. I remember they only had one Backstage Playset in stock, but the $50 price tag was what I made in a month, so I - ugh - passed, even though I had the money. I also think I unfairly compared it to the Swedish Chef set and it's 500 accessories - this barebones set didn't really excite me at the time. Honestly, one of my biggest regrets. And I feel like that's pretty depressing in itself, haha.
However, in that same trip, I did score a White Shirt Lips from that comic shop for - if I recall correctly - $14.99.
Haha. Nice score on Lips though! I do that all the time when I think about these guys. I was there when they all started coming out, but wasn't old enough to be able to get them. And now we gotta fight eBay, when back then they were dirt cheap. Hindsight's 20/20 though.
And no, I totally did not pay that all at once! Lol. The seller was generous enough to let me make a couple payments in order to get it.
