    I know Pepe won't really work with the sets selling wise and actuality from the muppet show, but not that it wouldn't be neat to place him in them, i just mean he will be part of this early muppet series and out of place.

    Aw. Pepe would sit right over by my computer with me...well actually the Muppet Theater will be out around wave 6 so I think he's look good in there.

    MUST MAKE MUST MAKE MUST MAKE

    I AM NOT GIVING UP!! And why is everyone trying to KEEP certain Muppet figures from being made. Some of us here are older and grew up with the older Muppets! I think the line of Muppets Tonight figures is an excellent idea. I love Pepe and would buy him instantly…oohkay? I just don’t think he should be mixed up in the current line.

    1) Mildred*
    2) Hilda*
    3) Pops*
    4) Lips*
    5) Nigel*
    6) Rizzo*
    7) Robin*
    8) Camilla*
    9) Marvin Suggs*
    10) Annie Sue*
    11) George the Janitor*
    12) Uncle Deadly*
    13) Wayne & Wanda*
    14) J.P. Grosse
    15) Mahna-Mahna
    16) Boppity (blue) & Gloat (green) Frackle
    17) Bobby Benson
    18) Zelda Rose
    19) Gaffer Cat
    20) Foofoo
    21) Lewis Kazagger
    22) Gladys the Lunch lady
    23) Brown Haired Female Muppet
    24) Flying Zucchini Brothers

    Everyone with an asterisk deserves to be made into a figure. They CAN be fit into the line and I think they will sell. It will be a wonderful and complete set of Muppets.
    The first thirteen should definitely be made. #14-24…would be beautiful figures…but aren’t on my list as priorities.

    It’s not that I have such a thing for these Muppets…because truthfully, Beaker, Lew Zealand & Gladys are my favorites! I just, as a Muppet fan, believe these characters are each as important as Floyd and Crazy Harry and Scooter!!

    I am really probably wasting my breath…but I am gonna keep on tryin’!
    Please…if you don’t know who these characters are, look them up…find pictures…watch episodes, you’ll come to love’em! And then you’ll want ‘em!!!!!
    Argh!

    Squidboy out!

    Peace love and harmony among all Muppephans
    :D

    Although I would love to have a Pepe bust (and dh would probably like a Bobo) I can wait.

    Good list, but...

    I think that SOME Muppet characters should never be made. For instance:

    Trumpet Lady
    Brown-haired female muppet

    WHO is the brown-haired female??
    If a character doesn't have a name or if they have one like female #3 or blue frackle, they OBVIOUSLY don't have the appeal to become a figure.
    I think that being obscure is one thing (Gaffer, J.P. Grosse, Hilda, Mildred) but being a nameless, voiceless, personality-less character like some of the "whatnots" is ridiculous!

    But, I do think that a good point was made either earlier in this post or another one, but I think an "anything Muppet" with removable magnetic parts would be cool.
    I think those would have appeal to even non-Muppet fans. It would be one of those little obscure toys that so many people collect to show off on their desk in the office...or am I the only one in an office like that? I might be, every Monday we run in to a colleague's office to see what she has added to her Marvin the Martian collection! :)

    Just my opinion,
    Jim

    I agree with you there. Well, except for the frackles. I think they do have appeal and were featured heavily on the show. Technically the green and blue frackles names are Boppity and Gloat and the new green frackle's name is Mo. I still think a playset of packaged Muppet Monsters would be fab!

    As for the trumpet lady and other no-named characters, there is no likelyhood they would be made anyway. Palisades is having trouble with Mahnah Mahnah, that doesn't give the whatnot Muppets very much hope. I would like old Mahna Mahna though!:)

    If "classic character" means some rarley seen 1st season Muppet, then no.

    As far as "classic characters" go, I think all the biggies have been covered so far. The only people not being made that I'd like to see and would accept before Pepe are Sweetums & Mahna Mahna.

    I think all the biggies have been covered too. Sweeetums will come out with the Theater playset which will be released around the time of wave three, so there's no competition there. There has been some concern about the rights of Mahna Mahna so I don't know what will come of that. I don't think Henson is sold on the idea of him, but I couldn't imagine why not.

    That was a major development that came about a couple of weeks ago.

    Sweetums has always been a size, packaging and price concern. By releasing him with the stage they can keep uniformity with the packaging. I believe he will still come with Robin. Keep in mind that the playset has unfortunately been pushed back to next summer. It was originally pushed past Christmas because all the waves were slightly delayed, and Palisades wanted a Summer of Winter release for it.

    Statler will come with wave 5 and Waldorf with wave 6 (tentative). I don't like them coming separately, but it is a marketing angle that the company likes. It's a good idea that non-fans can purchase the popular pair without having to pay the price for the whole stage.

    These changes can be seen on my running chart at www.jamesvier.com/muppets/figures
    Keep in mind that waves 6-8 are still open. I have put some good guesses down and some promised items in a hypothesized sequence, but there are many guesses. Waves 1-5 are relatively solid though things can change. Check it out.:)

    Froggy,

    If your chart is running, you better close the door so you don't lose it!
