    Poll: Favorite Palisades PVC

    Since Palisades officially announced their plans for the first set of PVC's which one are you looking forward to most? Did any really surprise you that they were being made in PVC form?

    Vote in the poll above then let us know why you are looking forward to that particular character.

    Mahna Mahna!! (do doo do do do)

    *He's a very cool Muppet for one. The blinking sunglasses are awesome.
    *He is one that is rarely featured with any other Muppets' products.
    *That song of his is just plain addictive.

    I'm with EM...everyone knows Mahna Mahna, but I don't remember ever seeing a toy for him....

    Probably Mahna Mahna, but I really would prefer to see the sculpt before my final opinion.

    so i haven't read yet but does this mean that we could now get a Mahna Mahna in the action figure line?

    Packaging?

    Does anyone know how the PVC's will be sold? Will they just be loose in buckets like the old California Raisins and Smurfs used to be? Or, given the recent rise of the respectability of action figures in pop culture, will there be all sorts of cardboard and plastic involved to protect the "collectors items."

    I've read people here talking about "sets" (GMC set etc) and I'm a little concerned - I'm amassing many of the action figures, but would love a couple PVC's for fun. I just don't want to have to buy the whole lot and would love it if the price were nice and low...

    Thanks for your help!

    They will probably be packaged the same way as The Year Without A Santa Claus PVC's.

    There are six character PVC's in the first set: Miss Piggy in bath towel on scale, Gonzo with balloons, Sam the Eagle, Thog, Mahna Mahna, and Snowths.

    The PVC I'm looking forward to most is Gonzo with balloons, a freeze frame of Gonzo at his happiest, "flyin', not walkin', on featherless wings." Where he "can hold onto love like invisible strings." A freeze frame of the foreshadowing of the entire movie "Muppets from Space".

    It looks like Manah Manah, so far out of all those polled, is the most popular choice. I can't blaime tham. Sure I'm excited about Gonzo, but there is soooo much Gonzo stuff out there. This would be the ONLY Manah Manah. As for Piggy, so far she's the furthest one in the polls. My personal list (from most wanted to least) is:

    Manah Manah
    Snowths (you can't have Manah Manah without Doo doo doo doo doo)
    Thog
    Sam
    Gonzo (but only cause I want the more obscure ones)
    and Piggy.

    Bathrobe and scale? Just not too excited about that.

    Um... I appreciate the response, but I haven't a clue how these were packaged. I'm more of a Muppet fan than a figure collector - thought my co-workers might argue otherwise... :)

    I am looking forward to Thog the most.

    Why am I not surprised the most obscure Muppet planned is always the one we look forward to most from Palisades?

    Obviously, Piggy Kermit, Gonzo, and Animal you can get just about ANNNY where! Manah Manah, Snowth, and Thog toys do not exist until now!

    Personally, I was looking forward to the obscure, and Muppets tonighjt characters (plus Fozzie, my fave).

    I only got Kermit and Piggy, cause they were on sale (that, and I was waiting for Pigs in Space Piggy and Reporter Kermit).

    All of the PVCs listed in the pole will come together in a set. It's the only way they could make the obscure ones. That was some of the thought behind starting the PVC line. I forgot what the price will be. Something like twenty bucks? I don't know. They are likely worth it!

    BTW - I voted for Thog!

    I'm looking forward to the whole set, but Miss Piggy is the fav. I'm a sucker for anything featuring that Porcine Princess Picture of Perfection!!! :)

    What I want to know is...what the heck are Mahna-Mahna and the Snowths going to look like from the waist down? WHAT DO THEIR FEET LOOK LIKE?

    Palisades included an image in their announcement that showed them from the waist down. Scroll about 3/4 down this page to see....

    I voted for Gonzo with Baloons. Mainly because I LOVED Gonzo in The Muppet Movie, and The Baloon scene is my favorite. I also think Piggy with towel and scale will be cool. Mana Mana also sounds great!
