    I'm pretty sure Palisades made a few Muppet figures that never had legs (Uncle Deadly I think is one of them) so just be creative!

    Assuming she wore pants, is Usher Scooter a good base for the purple tux uniform? Or would Gonzo's tux fig be a better base?

    Uncle Deadly had legs in a Jim Henson produced comic.

    If I were making a Trumpet Girl, I'd totally go with Purple Tux Gonzo's body as the base, as it will require the least work.

    And, call me crazy, but I think Marvin Suggs has the right head shape, and could also donate the hands. You'd need to tweak the head sculpt to remove the facial hair and add the wig, but otherwise it's just a matter of swapping out parts and painting the 'skin'.

    Then go to Hobby Lobby and buy their Toob of Musical Instruments.

    It will give you the option of a trumpet or a trombone, and if you print out their online coupon for the week, it's less than $6 for eight instruments.

    Taking your advice Dearth and order a Gonzo and Marvin to customize. It was your Toob suggestion on another thread that had me thinking of TG. Just need to learn to sculpt.

    Awesome customs on here guys!

    I recently acquired custom Snouth heads and a Wembley head, painted and everything. I was wondering if the custom kings here could reccommend some existing Palisades Muppet bodies for these figures that wouldn't require much in the way of sculpting.

    Thanks for any and all help. :)

    hey guys!! i thought i would share some stuff i created a couple years back...

    i modified the audio from about 20 different shows and found snippets from everytime the show was hosted by someone named chris... (chris reeves/ chris christophers/ etc) and i created a 40 minute audio show of MYSELF hosting...lol

    then i bought every playset and character in order to do a stop motion type video series set to the audio...

    THIS IS THE ONLY FOOTAGE I FINISHED...LOL

    check it out...


    I guess it was a bit too ambitious... and i burnt out kinda quick... so i sold all my figures and playsets and opened up a puppet theater (but thats another story)

    ANYWAYS... i found a folder that had some of my photoshopped sets and backgrounds that i had created and thought u guys may want to see them or even use them... i needed hi-def images so i simply couldnt bare to use screen grabs....so most of it i pieced together from non muppet related images...so nothing is exact...but it still captures the vibe i think...

    here is a few images

    my muppet labs (i made these in photoshop with the ability to put my stop motion images under layers like the counter top

    You guys absolutely do amazing work. I'm just floored with the amount of talent and artistry displayed here from the figures to the back drops/set pieces etc. Awesome! I'm currently working on my own Muppet Theatre from a display piece that was given to me a few years ago. When I get it done, I'll try to get some pics up! :)
