since Disney is providing them with them materials to make the posers. That will be a good thing.
Although none of this is carved in stone yet, the first one is supposed to be Rizzo. The prototype is being built right now. The plan is to do Reporter, or Great Muppet Caper Kermit second. Then Piggy POSSIBLY third.
Like I said, none of this is definite beyond Rizzo actually being built.
I *MIGHT* go for the Pig. Beyond that I'm not interested until Fozzie is slated for release. Really disappointed that such a key character has been shelved yet again - there are absolutely no good representations of him at all out there (Palisades stuff included). Rizzo and Pepe will be incredibly easy for me to pass on.
Uh, Piggy third? If she stinks up the joint and we don't get a Pepe, I am going to lose it!
I wanna get Gonzo and Animal first before I get anything else.
Miss Piggy will be my first purchase or pepe who ever comes first of the two LOL i can not WAIT . WOW THIS IS GOING TO BE A GREAT LINE I AM STARTING TO SAVE MY MONEY NOW ! Any news on realease dates and who will come first in the series .
Really? Palisades' tux Fozzie didn't come out right, but series two's was very good and made as # 38 on Toy Fare's list of top 100 toys of the decade and I agree. It wasn't perfect but it was quite good.
I do hope they make a poser of him. I'm a bit saddened by that too.
LOL sorry i saw this after i put my post about realease dates and who was first , ok if rizzeo is the first well i he is one on my list to want very much . I will buy him even though it does not seem that Piggy and Kermit are first LOL
Reporter kermit? maybe we need a poll on that. WHo will actuall buy another kermit poser that already has the original, just to get the outfit. Seriously we need need a poll!
Cause if Kermit blows it we are without pig.
I'd totally be down for another Kermit poser!
I still haven't picked up the Animal poser--not sure how much cash I can swing to pick all of them up. But this is a neat line-up. I would do bad things to get a Pepe poser.
Did I miss or are they not still going to go ahead with Fozzie? I am confused.
They don't even look that good though... they look worse than the robotic ones they put on bicycles or their photo shoots. I still might get the Kermit one though.
What about Rowlf, Scooter, Floyd, Dr. Teeth or Lew Zealand? Produce those and I might check 'em out.
I think Rizzo is... ok, to start with. But, I must state, in no uncertain terms, if this line fizzles out before we get a Pepe after his name appeared in the press release, I will be devastated!
I just think Piggy is going to be too big and expensive to sell well.
I think they are trying to focus on what will apeal to the masses and may have plans on releasing some of those other Muppets in the future.
Can I say it? Folks, Can I say it? Can I say it finally, Once again folks! Yeaaaaaaaaah
BRING ON DA BEAR!
This is great news. As someone who never lost faith in this line, or in the fact that someone would pick the ball back up.
By the way since the last time I posted I finally picked up Gonzo. I do like him but he's just not my favorite Muppet. Don't mind the eyelids. I found a Small piece of (wait for it, and don't laugh... wait for it) the center of a Q-tip shoved under the eyelid lip, makes them completely, COMPLETELY and independently pose-able. My pupils aren't so bad, as I've seen on others. Plus, I don't know how but he's #0191 !
So as far as eFX, congrats to them. I wish them luck.
On the issue of Rizzo. Talk about the Kathy Griffin of Muppets! Pepe, good choice, and I'm not a fan of his. But good choice for the masses. Piggy, great choice. I also am concerned with what they may do with her. What direction they will approach the project. But I do have faith in them. I personally would like to see her as she appears nowadays with her clothing representing a touch of classic Piggy?
I would buy a new Kermit if they fixed the manufacturing issues of the previous. I do LOVE Frog of my heart, but his neck length, collar and the lack of a sharp point to his upper and lower lips bothers me.
I will be happy with whatever we get, and will purchase as many or few as long as they retain the high standards for what we're expecting, and everything I've heard about eFX will deliver that.
I did not realize there were so many problems with the Kermit replica? Are there any other problems I should know before spending such a considerable amount of money?
My personal ordered wish list:
(Not to be confused with the actual real list)
That's my list. I'd dig an Uncle Deadly, but if Scooter isn't likely then Deadly will never happen.
Please don't missunderstand my comments. Kermit is and will always be my prized possession. Like if the house was on fire what would you run back inside for.... ? The Kermit replica is well worth the money, even if the market brings it up to $300. My comments concerning Kermit were VERY nitpicky. I absolutely love my frog. I just want near-perfection.
It's mildly comforting to hear Fozzie hasn't been completely dismissed, and very disturbing to hear that he's so far off as to be considered on life support. You'll probably have my support with Miss Piggy. But for anything else, you'll need to offer Fozzie.
