    I kinda got confused reading the posts. So did eFX start and stop the line, or the line never started?

    They announced the line, even showing prototypes of Reporter Kermit and Rizzo (and I'm pretty sure Travis had said they were going to try to go ahead with Fozzie at one point), but nothing was ever actually manufactured for retail sale. :(

    Ok, make of this what you will...

    I have just had an email regarding my order for Rizzo that was placed two years ago(!!!!!!!) on play.com. They said Rizzo will be coming into stock on 22nd June. Obviously I was more than a little cynical so I phoned them up. The lady confirmed that this was the info that they had but phoned up their head office on my behalf. When she came back on the phone she said that EFX had contacted them to let them know that this was the date it would come into stock(??!!!???)

    I sincerely doubt that anything will materialise from this, I just find it a little intriguing. I'll keep you all posted on my inevitable disappointment on the 22nd but can anyone else let us know if they have had this notification?

    *Pant* *Pant* Calm down, Gavan. This is probably not going to follow through! Don't get you hopes up......

    Is there anyway to order it to ship to the US?

    Do not get your hopes up, Sir. It's more likely that Elvis will rise from the grave than an EFX Rizzo arrive on my doorstep on the 22nd. I just find it slightly odd that after 12 months of no communication, I have suddenly had this announcement that "apparently" came from EFX.

    Now, I'll just go put the Kettle on for the king...

    Hi

    Yes, I had the exact same email today which I also found very strange after such a long time. I'm not taking it seriously at all!! But it would be great if rizzo was on my doorstep in just a few weeks!! Lol.

    Not gonna happen......

    Grrr... Why can't Bryan come back on and clear up this whole mess? I have already E-mailed EFX, and I am tempted to call them......

    i think efx pushed themseleves way to fast for the rizzo to come out as early as they said and sadly i don't think it will ever happen i think we have more chance of seeing a solar eclipse than this rizzo photo puppet

    Well as expected this new date was false. They emailed again today it's actually due 31st August!! Lol
    Why don't they just remove it off play.com and cancel orders....... Why don't I cancel my order??

    Seriously, why don't they just say, "Okay, we were wrong, he is not coming out."

    And where in Gonzo's name are they getting all of this false information??????

    Okay, so it's not new posers, but a new Mayhem display has been added to the gift shop at Hollywood Studios:



    What a shame we couldn't get posers of the entire band!

    So, did anyone ask Bryan at Comic Con about Rizzo supposedly being released by play.com?

    Hi Guys,
    I am sorry to say. It is not going to happen the line has ended. EFX will Not be making any of these. Unless some one else takes it up. The problem was getting a factory that would be able to keep up the quality that was needed.

    Oh my gosh I can't believe it thats terrible news, next you'll be telling me Master Replicas won't be delivering their Ghostbusters backpack. No one thought they would ever hear this. This is so shocking, probably one of the most surprising things I have ever heard. The Mayans predicted this but I didn't listen. I am in a state of total and utter shock...Enough sarcasm? ;):rolleyes:

    Whilst I'll try not to take it personally that Bryan never seems to deliver any of his promises :mad: , I don't think this is really news at all. The fact that EFX has had ample opportunity to update us over the years and has chose not to do so, and ignored all emails regarding the topic shows that there was never really any real effort to get this line off the ground or respect for the (exceptionally patient!!!) fans. Whilst I'm sure the Star Wars fans will inevitably jump to EFX defence, my experience of the later days of Master Replicas and EFX are not something I can express without the use of expletives that would turn the air blue, people...I'll just have to stick to the sarcasm!

    Thanks for the update though, Propologist.

    Thank you Mike. It is such a shame collectors will never get to see these for sale. I hope that another line will pick up the line, and start producing them.
