    Amazon has them listed for a February 22 release date, so I am not 100% sure when we are going to get them

    I probably could have done these versions of Bunsen, Beaker, and Animal, but Statler and Waldorf look so lonely without that gorgeous balcony.

    Looks likes Series 4 is Swedish Chef & a chicken, Dr Teeth & Zoot, and Sam and Rizzo. I want to see a Pepe in the lineup but, this pretty good.

    These look great I love that the chef is getting loads of accessories I especially love the crying onion. Sam and Rizzo also look like nice additions as do Dr Teeth and Zoot.

    Here's hoping the lack of Pepe means series 5 could be being planned maybe they'll announce something at toy fair :)

    So excited to get my hands on that Dr. Teeth, I'm now a little afraid that we won't get Lips but maybe if wave 5 will include him! I'm hoping for Lips, Pepe, and Snowths.

    I think it's actually more puppet accurate to me.

    Also is there not going to be a fourth wave of Muppet Minimates? Diamond select responded to my Facebook reply saying the Muppet Minimates were finished "they think" but maybe more action figures. But I think at least one more wave of Minimates to close the line is necessary. We didn't get Sam the Eagle, Rizzo, or Lew Zealand not to mention the pink Snowths to go with our Manha Manha. Seeing that we got Constantine it would be nice to get Walter too. Other runners up Uncle Deadly, Buea, Bobo the Bear, Big Mean Carl, Pops, Marvin Suggs, maybe even a penguin. I know Sweetums would be out of scale but he would be cool too. I mean Pepe is a full figure and Robin is a pack-in so who cares! But it would be a shame to close out the line without Sam, Rizzo, Lew Zealand, the Snowths and Walter at least! I'd love to see a Vets hospitals set too and maybe a patrol pig Link but it might be pushing it.

    Yeah, I was wondering why we didn't get a preview of series 4 Muppet Minimates, because the lines have been released in swinging fashion (Minimates 1, select 1, Minimates 2, select 2, etc) so after the preview of select 3, next preview should have been Minimates 4, so the end it is.:cry: I guess Toys R Us pulled out of making exclusives because the line wasn't selling that good. Oh well, DST got close to their planned four releases of Minimates.

    I certainly hope they can muster up a wave 4. It would close off the line so nicely then. It definitely will be weird not to have Sam, Lew Zealand, the Snowths, and Rizzo, maybe Walter as well as some of the others I mentioned. We will have Manha Manhan twice without the Snowths. Rizzo, Sam, and Lew, should be given and Walter beacause we got "Constantine" I mean "Kermit as Constantine".

    Sam and Rizzo seem like the biggest minimate omission to me, so if they could find it in their hearts (and budget) to squeeze out one more set, I would be ok with that. If they have a little more room in those hearts and wallets, I would want to see Walter, Lew, and Sweetums.

    So that'll be 25 Muppets if you include the smaller figures too in Four waves. That's pretty good to be honest. And I'd be happy with that as I have no interest in different versions of the same characters.

    Have we even seen the full accessories for Wave 4 yet?

    Ha, I had to literally laugh out loud when I noticed the crying onion :p
    Hoping tho with wave 5, if there is a wave 5, they start putting in non classic/newer characters like Pepe and Big Mean Carl.

    Supposedly wave 3 is out next week?
