I've been wondering that my self!
I thought about getting one for my collection, but I didn't think of the patterns! Good idea!
Actually, I alway suggest folks contact www.projectpuppet.com for their patterns. They're about as Muppety as anybody needs to get.
Those look so awesome! I like! I like what I see!
Im going to NY on 29th Nov, so I will definetly be taking a look at these, although I am not sure yet if I will get one?
They do look like whatnots, but not any what not I recognise?
I hope you can buy extra eyes, noses and wigs to change it, rather than having just 1 puppet, afterall, a whatnot is a changeable puppet?
I don't think you really understand the objective behind this... This is for people to create their own Whatnot characters. I don't think they're trying to make replicas of Whatnots we've seen over the years--even though I'm sure there are enough parts there to make one similar. I think they just want to encourage creativity in the Muppet brand.
Yes I kinda get that, I guess its a bit like the Muppet Workshop products in the 90's trying to encourage creativity.
Cant wait to see them in FAO in 6 weeks.
I think it is a great idea, Shaun said we are going back to NYC soon I would love to make one
Which is a million times better than just having a recreation of a character. This puppet is a piece of you, making it unique. As long as they don't run out of pieces during your visit.
And I wouldn't know if these pieces are interchangeable or permanently affixed. But I;m sure that they'd sell a bag of extra pieces eventually (similar to Mr. Potatohead)
Dude... can't wait. I'm hoping to go when it opens this Wednesday.
i cant wait! i wanna go opening day! lol
Since I can usually make the kind of puppets I like to design anyway, I would like to try and make my whatnot look like me. I think that would be kind of fun. hopefully they have the right stuff to do that.
And I noticed one of the pictures had a tuxedo. Very cool. Classic Muppets.
It opens in a few days - I can't wait
i can't wait! my parents are going to NYC a few days after it opens and they are gonna check it out! my birthday is coming up (kinda) and my mom said she might take me and one of my friends!
Wow, check out those seams. I don't think that's antrom fleece they're using. These are basically on the same level as Puppet productions christian style puppets; better eyes, that's about it.
Hey, thanks for living up to my expectations.
im extremely excited for this release! when i grow up, i really wanna be a puppeteer and puppet maker, so this is really big for me considering i still dont have a decent puppet. the only one i have is one from when i was like 3 and you put your hand in at his neck and he had no arm rods so i had to add some and i didn wanna buy any so i used the rods for my little sister's mini tent. they work pretty good though.
Hey, if you like seams galore and really stubby looing hands, then fork over the $100! lol. I'll pass, thank you. These are a step above Hallmark spinner rack kiddie hand puppets. But that's what's it's there for, the kids; so I guess not bad. But not to be confused with a pro puppet.
BUT.....a nice training tool. Plus I imagine it will be a really nifty place to pick up some pre-made eyes + noses.....as well as clothes. AND eventually patterns when ppl start taking theirs apart. You gotta look at what you can scavenge.
But I think they will be really nice training tools for creativity (creating a character) and practicing basic puppeteering.
I think these puppets are a step up from a 'Hallmark spinner rack.' I'm not saying that any of these puppets live up to the standards of the real Muppets or the puppets built by almost any of our forum members. But there is something to be said about the achievement in Disney's merchandising attempts and the ease at which creativity could be inspired with this product. Truly, isn't that the point of any aspects to Jim's legacy? SIMPLE IS GOOD! Anbody remember that ?
Arguing aside ... It's November 20 (the date it was reported the site would launch) and nothing's there! We need to wait until Wednesday? This is more dissappointing than a Sweedish Chef the audience could understand !
its not november. its october. lol.
