    Some of the accessories seem like an afterthought. Crazy Harry can't properly hold the triangle (assuming he's supposed to play it - where is the beater/stick?). His hands look like they were sculpted to hold a dynamite plunger.

    I literally think we are supposed to save Mahna Mahna and the triangle for when the Zoot figure comes out.

    Tell me this - is there a hole on the back of the balcony so you can hang it on the wall?

    Edit: Okay, I found out there isn't, but last question: what is the difference between the TRU Animal and the "deluxe" version? Anything?

    The balcony is set back in, at the back, so you could hang it, resting the nails on the top edge. If there was any difference in the TRU Animal, it would be that there might be less cymbals.

    I bought The Lips and Zoot minimates and the Rowlf select pack. I am excited to get my hands on Piggy and Floyed next.

    No the TRU Animal version was exactly the same as the regular version!

    At the Diamond Select panel they had a slide of The Muppets but nothing new. I'm still hopeful of a 5th wave of figures though :)

    Well, wave 3 is out, but it is worrying that it doesn't appear that wave 4 is
    on show at Comic Con.

    Wave 3 hasn't reached the UK yet and no signs! I can't remember what interview it came from but wherever it was I thought the DST guy was very coy about Wave 4 reaching the shelves a month or so ago

    Anyone in the UK found series 3 yet?
    I see they are on Amazon.co.uk but are out of stock at the moment and a seller has them on eBay, but £40 for the Piggy set, he's having a laugh! Good sign that they could be in Forbidden Planet though

    Scratch that about Forbidden Planet, I just called the Shaftesbury Avenue shop and he checked the system and said it doesn't look like they're stocking them anymore

    I was just coming on to say that I still haven't been charged. It has gone past the 10 days since I got their email. Sure is taking a long time to get to them since DST shipped them. BBTS must have gone for the cheapest shipping and a walking back packer must still be on the way !!!

    Do you happen to have a pic of the Cookie figure with the DST figures? The Bandai figure is 3.6 inches tall for reference.

    Diamond responded to a Facebook post from February 2017 stating that series 5 is a possibility: "If everyone pre-orders Series 4, maybe!" It's nice to hear they haven't ruled it out.

    BBTS now have stock and my order has been processed.

    Wow this thread seems dead lately! Guess most people are still waiting on Series 3?
    I finally managed to snag all 3 sets at a decent price on Amazon here in the UK, should have them by next Wednesday hopefully!

    I received mine from BBTS today. I really don't have anything critical to say other than 1.) Miss Piggy has a real hard time standing and 2.) No explosives with Harry. The amount of accessories is great! I probably spent more time untying twisty ties than I did messing around with the figures. Rowlf, Crazy Harry, and Janice are probably my favorite of the group.

    Oh also Lips is in the group photo, and listed on the playbill so on the off chance we do get a 5th wave of figures I'm pretty sure Lips will be a part of the assortment.
