The Rizzo Replic looks really cool!
I see I'm not the only one getting fed of waiting for Rizzo to be released
play.com are now saying that the release date is 1 October and I really want to pre-order but have a suspicion that the date'll get pushed back again.
The efx website hasn't been updated for months either.
I think I'll keep my money and save up for Fozzie, if he ever sees the light of day...
If I'm not mistaken it's about the 50th time Play have changed the date - I'm getting tired of the order updates! !
I don't think it's coming out. I've kind of come to terms with that.
i did too. a long time ago....
Sadly, same with me.
well looks like we were led on with a ton of false hope for the past how ever many months. at least MR actually supplied us with three great posers.....
Well, with the money that I had set aside, I might as well use it for something else. I was really loking forward to this like all of you. I managed to save up enough just to get this and the money has been sitting there. I am affriad to let go of it cause if Rizzo does pop up. I will not be able to get him. Oh well.
Times are tough for everybody - especially in collectibles. Even mainstream companies are cutting out anything slightly niche. I just kind of felt that EFX kind of capitalized from the MR notoriety without adding much cohesion of their own. I think this can come out. Something might have to give for it to happen. Still, I think they should have started with a more marketable character.
I have been searching for quite some time for a Kermit MR and found this late last night. Does anyone know if it is real?
It looks like the one that efx are doing now that they've taken on the replicas from Master Replicas. It's also the same photo that play.com are using for their pre-orders.
As you can see from the previous posts, the release dates keep getting knocked back... and back... and back...
A lot of people are losing faith in efx I'm afraid
There is no sale on these anywhere no matter what these companies are saying. They don't even have a factory to make them so how do they even have a price estimate? I would wait till you hear REAL news from eFX.
It seams like there is a demand. I thought the basis of business was supply and demand. I DEMAND my Muppet Replicas. Now make them eFX!
don't get yer hopes up
Love it. If only it was that simple
I see that forbiddenplanet.com have now listed Rizzo as "Sold Out"!
Isn't "sold" the simple past tense of "sell", which would indicate that something did happen in the past? Methinks it would be more appropriate to use the past unreal conditional tense, which is used to express that something that could have happened if circumstances had been different. "Would have sold out."

I'm thinking that they just put "sold out" because they mightnt want to take more orders till they know what is going on.They have an email for update link for when it becomes available again.
Play.com are still taking orders!
Not sure if anyone saw this.. but according to this page, they are looking for a company to produce them at the same quality for a good price:
There are some pretty cool production pics there as well
That was posted a year or two ago and it's what they've been saying for a long time, but i don't think they're looking anymore.
