    I'd check out Toy R Us for Dr. Teeth! This is the first one I've seen since I got mine in August.

    Hmm ... I just discovered that the Rabbit's feet rotate at the ankles. You all probably already knew that, but it's new to me!

    Sweet find! I didn't know his feet could rotate. he's like a new figure again.

    Hey Guys!

    First off... Welcome Lew Zealand to the forum. It's great to see another fellow Canadian Collector! Thanks also for the kind offer of getting the figures for me, however I have since purchased a lab set, and a friend purchased Bunsen for me online. So I am good!
    I never knew the Rabbit's feet were poseable either! I think that makes for 7 points of articulation!

    I am slightly becoming a little more addicted than what I wanted to become. I told myself that I was going to pass up the
    "exclusive figures" (other than EB figures). I couldn't contain myself waiting for series 2 and now I have already gotten invisable fozzie and now I am debating about getting vacation fozzie... the tux kermit and Teeth exclusives are the ones I am passing up on though for sure. They didn't appeal to me that much. Although if I did see tux kermit at a speciality store here I would get him... but not online.
    Anyone know when EB in Canada is getting series 2 stock in?

    EB will get them soon, BC, but still no fixed date.

    I too am getting more and more addicted...c'est la vie...I have a VC beaker rom the collector's club and a tux kermit on the way, and I definitely want a vacation fozzie..still up in the air about invisible fozzie. Only figures I doubt I'll ever see is WW Teeth and invisible beaker....

    I even went out and bought regular piggy last night...madness!

    Oh, and I didn't know the rabbit's feet could rotate either!! I also never knew until recently that dr. Teeth's "cuffs" could rotate independently from his wrists! It's amazing what you find as you play around with these figures....

    Hey Stryder where are you getting a tux kermit from? ebay?
    just wonderin!

    Thanks for the welcome, BC. I post at Palisades forum too as Dr.Teeth. I'm glad to hear that you got all the line, I hate missing a piece I really want. Now just for Series 2...

    I am planning on getting a VC Beaker. The VC Fozzie I am going to wait on a bit (need some $$ for starters).

    I found the Vac Fozzie on the Music Land webpage for $8.99 (US) but since the Vac. Fozzie at Wizard World is $19.99 I think the lower price might be incorrect. You can find a link to the Music Land page through Muppet Central's link from the Vac. Fozzie picture. I will order a Vac Fozzie when I have some more cash too.

    I don't touch repaints (although you can argue that VC Beaker and VC Fozzie are repaints). I can't swing more $$ for a Tux Kermit so I'll just miss out on this one. I used to be blood thirsty in being a completist with my toy collections, but I have since learned that I don't need every figure version, especially rehashes.

    ONe of the Palisades board members (bats1990) swung a deal with me and is sending me one. I don't use ebay, so I try to make private deals. It should be arriving to me probably on monday or tuesday!

    Oh, as for VAC Fozzie, I hope to get him the same way, unless the site that Lew brought up allows us to order eventually..right now I can't seem to find a way to "add to cart" at all...

    I got my invisable fozzie from ebay. Not a huge fan of ebay, but once in awhile I make a bid. I got Fozzie for a great price, and at first I thought that the seller was going to get (pee)ed since they were from the states. So all in all I think I got Fozzie for a great deal. I think I paid 27 US including shipping. I even got the postcard that Palisades was handing out at the convention.
    He is still in the box.

    I still have yet to join the fan club... and then I will have Invisable Beaker.

    My biggest interest in joining the club is the hope of Muppet exclusives for members only - I am sure Palisades will offer them but I am curious to know what they could be. Anyone get their members packages yet? How long was the wait?

    I got my member package. Waited nearly a month and a half. I really like what I got especially the nice bonus, but I'll see in the long run if it was worth it. The shipping on new items is kinda steep to Canada. I really hope we get some club exclusive muppet toys soon.

    I got mine about six weeks ago. The onl complaint I had, like many, was the shipping. The box said something like $6.90, USPS not UPS. So my guess is it wasn't much more than US shipping, although I got dinged $10 more. Oh, well. With the bonus I did just fine and if I found myself in a jam for cash I could recoup the cost.

    I'm curious to se how the CC will end up, and if it will be worth it in the long run, but I think it will..they just have to work the bugs out of it still..I mean, it's very new, with only around 500 members so far...

    bc-fraggle New Member

    A month and half really isn't all that long to have to wait. At least for us Canadians. My main reasons for joining the club is to get the emails with new product updates and of course more mainly invisable beaker. Although I am holding out for awhile to see if it is worth my time getting Invis. Beaker online through Ebay, ect.. just in case Palisades offers a new incentive to join. You never know they may be giving out nekkid Rowlf's once all the Beakers are gone.

    just got my order form for invisible fozzie today...he's awfully expensive in canadian funds..the figure itself is 15 US fundas, and shipping is another 17 US...that's what makes him expensive...BUT I decided to get him anyway..I dont' mind spending the money on a small toy ocmpany like palisades that needs the support and really try hard...if it was hasbro or mattel or something, I wouldnt' bother, but I like to support the "little guy" and think that the figures are worth it...

    A month and a half is a bit long to wait for getting the club membership. I got my initial package maybe 2 weeks after I ordered it, and Fozzie took maybe a week. Overall I've been quite pleased by the club, though I really do wish they would cut Canadians a break on shipping. I imagine it's because they don't want to start custom tailoring all prices to be accurate for the receiving countries, but from my experience, shipping to Canada is generally not THAT much more expensive then shipping inside the states.

    Sorry to hound on the subject... but does anyone out there have an idea when series 2 will be arriving? Are the already arriving... or is it still a little ways off. I guess I am getting a little anxious.
    Updates appreciated.

    I'm hoping this week, but still haven't heard anything concrete...sorry..I'm anxious too :)

    Any word yet guys if the series 2 figures are showing up here in Canada. I still haven't heard from EB, where I pre-ordered mine. I am going to check with them tommorow to see what the scoop is.
