    I just placed my disneystore.com order with 1 of each plush since the pepe and rizzo plush are now available! plus free shipping. I tend to only purchase from disneystore.com only if free shipping b/c shipping can be ridiculous. Also, if you are a disney movie rewards member, you can now get the official muppets movie poster for 550 points. I ordered mine! It said 6-8 weeks for shipping and I was surprised when I received an email today stating it shipped! I am so excited! Through November - January I will be like a kid in a candy store with all the muppets merchandise.

    I don't think I've ever seen or heard of them...

    I checked the Wiki, though. There's a Spa'am and some tourist rats too. Bet this costs a fortune on E-bay.

    There's apparently a British Burger King premium that has a Long John Silver with a Polly on his shoulders, but there's no picture of that.

    I'm REALLY excited! I just found out there is a newly opened Disney Store in St Louis, MO. That is only about a 90 minute drive for me !(Instead of the 4 hour drive to the Michigan Ave store in Chicago...) Looks like I have something to go see this weekend!!!

    The Muppets were never released by the Disney machine. The Disney machine is known for merchandise onslaughts for their fall tentpoles in the last decade.
    Lack of Muppet film merch=lame and unacceptable to me..but sadly, just as I predicted.

    Hey everyone. Just a heads-up. I just called my local disneystore and asked about the muppets merchandise. They said the majority of the items will be on the floor Nov 12. They said Nov. 12 the disneystore is hosting a muppets craft event!!!

    I wasn't expecting much. Even the movie specific merchandise for Toy Story 3 and Cars 2 didn't hit until around the time of and after the movie. Yet, they could have easily had Kermit and Animal on store shelves anyway.

    Still, the only ball I see being dropped is rereleasing the movies and getting Season 4 out there... but Season 4's got music rights issues. I'd never expect to see anything like the Muppet action figure line again. But PVC's wouldn't hurt.

    We did get Croaker from "Kermit's Swamp Years" in the Dairy Queen Cannonballers premium.

    Forgot about them too...

    though, to be honest, there weren't very many movie specific Muppets until MTM... unless you count Mr. Fozzmet the Brog in GMC (That's what I call him, anyway).

    I wonder if those plush reported at Toy Fair 2010 are still coming, or if these plush are them. They don't look entirely like the puppets, but most of them are good likenesses.

    Drat it. My car is down for repairs this weekend...but I must drive across town to the worst traffic area nonetheless, and soon...I must brave the idiots with SUVs in order to get to the only Disney store around! Maybe NEXT week...

    That sounds awesome! Be sure to post about that when you get details(or even pix!)
    My local new Disney store didn't have a single Muppet thing today, but perhaps they are waiting til right around the movie. IF ONLY Disney didn't excommunicate Mcdonalds. All those abortions of awful DWA and Fox animation films get McD toys

    Ok, so last night I went to the Disney store near me in Queens, NY. They had some of the muppet items there. Out fo the plushes, they had Kermit (they really nailed him this time in plush, in MHO), Gonzo (I feel like no one ever gets him right, the nose color always throws me off), Rizzo, Pepe and Fozzie (he looks much better in person than online). They had a Miss Piggy mug, the muppet vinylmation figurines....and that was about it.

    I did buy myself a Pepe plush and he is amazing, I absolutely LOVE him and am soooo happy I didn't wait for Christmas to get this lil guy! The colors and everything are so true to the character. I have him sitting next to my Kermit, Animal and Gonzo Replicas.

    I asked about the Animal and Piggy Plushes and the disney store person told me they get inventory every tuesday and Friday, SO for people traveling long distances to any disney stores, I suggest calling them up first and ask if the merchandise has arrived at that specific store.

    Good luck and have fun muppet shopping! Can't wait to see the plush version of Walter.
