    Tell me about it! 2 locations that JUST re-opened closed back down since they had only a barely 2 year lease. *&^%!! Simon Malls and their ridiculous leasing policies. They have all these upscale stores NO ONE really shops at everywhere I go, and they can't give the Diz an extension? Only reason I even went to Malls was because of that place. It was REALLY improving in the merchandise they carried too. :cry:

    Nope! if it says Features ''Genuine Authentic Original Disney Store'' patch on there bottom of there foot or back, then it WON'T be for sale at a Disney Park (World or Land) it it says it does with Pepe, kermit, etc.

    As odd or Random as it may sound Disney Store Merch is never the same as Disney Park Merch even plush..i wish i had a mickey plush to compare but materials and even patterns are always very different

    darn.. oh well, I hope they have some kind of movie merch there.. even if its just the novel adaption:search: Like DrTooth said.. If they sell out, than Disney will make more! I'm not giving up on my wish for a Walter plush.. and any Uncle Deadly plush will only be avaialble after the films release( I can't wait for people to actually RECOGNIZE him:rolleyes:)

    Because it's super awesome? It even used actual vintage Muppet Show Fan Club logos.

    Anyone have a pic of the Pepe plush? It's curious how that sold out...but Kermit, Piggy, etc didnt. Get the message yet Disney? People overall want Muppet merch, but I have come to the conclusion that Disney probably won't be obliging much. Btw anyone know when the Star Wars figures come out?

    I said this before... I actually did some research and realized there never was all that much of Muppet Merchandise when a movie came out. Muppet Treasure Island had the most. Even then it was like 3 plush, a McDonalds promotion AND Bubble Bath in containers shaped like the characters.

    On the one hand, I agree there should be more... but on the other hand, I wasn't expecting Pepe or Rizzo. Maybe Beaker. Either more will follow the movie or more will follow how things are selling out. I'm more disappointed if there's no Muppet stuff outside of the Disney Store, but frankly, I'm not expecting much there either.

    The non-us didneystore websites have the pepe plush...no fair. Does anyone know if the kermit is a poseable kermit or if he is just made waiving? I am asking because I already have a poseable kermit and I would not want to buy 2 of the same item :)

    Went to my local Disney store today. They had Fozzie out and a new Kermit mug. They had three of the new t-shirts too. I asked when they would be getting more and they said this Thursday would be the big day. They were nice enough to show me the print out of what they are setting up...

    The really good news is... There is a WALTER plush. He was on the display they said was going in the front of the store. And the Kermit plush in the picture they showed me looked much better than the online pic.

    Pepe is back in stock. I just ordered 2 and it applied a $5 discount to my order. I'm not sure why.

    goldengonzo Well-Known Member

    Oh, I guess Pepe is considered a small plush and qualifies for the 2 for 20 deal. I wonder if he's really 15" then.

    I will wait till they get Walter in, and then order Pepe as well.Hope Pepe doesnt sell out again while I wait!

    OOOH! One of the rare times we actually get movie specific characters! And around the release of a movie too! It took us 10 years to get Ghost of Christmas Past as a figurine from Palisades... and the only pirate we got was a pack in Polly Lobster. And the only time we saw Phil, Gil, and Jill was in a video game.

    I was looking at the Muppet Central collectibles guide, and there was a PVC of Mad Monty and Polly Lobster (sculpted together) released in spain in 1996.
