    Hello friends!

    I am so excited to announce some great new and exciting news! I am not sure if this has been mentioned on MC but I just found out from a friend who works as a manager for Build A Bear Workshop that there will be MUPPETS released for sale at BUILD A BEAR this year!

    My friend showed me an inner company email release stating that Kermit and Miss Piggy will be released at the end of February or beginning of March in celebration of the release of the new MUPPETS movie on DVD and BluRay. My friend allowed me to take a photo of the email showing Kermit and Miss Piggy but I had to crop out the remaining details from the document. I can tell you that there are possible plans for other Muppet Characters to be released at a later date but it was not confirmed. The email listed Gonzo, Fozzie, Scooter and Walter as the future possible released characters. But again, those characters were not listed as definite but Kermit and Piggy are. The document also listed Muppet clothing and accessories to be released with Kermit and Piggy!

    I am SO EXCITED! Cheers to all MUPPET FANS for brand New Muppets at Build A Bear Workshop coming soon in the next month and a half!

    Here is the photo I took. :)

    I would be so happy if they made a Scooter <3 My only Scooter plush is small and his eyes are off center :(

    I would be very happy to have a nice big build a bear Scooter :D And Fozzie too, he deserves more love!

    As for Kermit and Miss Piggy, I think I must pick up one of each <3

    Ooh, I hope that the actual dolls look that good. And if they really do add Scooter to the lineup I will HAVE to make me one.

    That Piggy is FANTASTIC! Piggy is notoriously hard to get right in plush form...
    Worst cases she looks terrible
    Best cases, she looks okay...

    But that's one of, if not THE best Piggy plush toys I've ever seen.

    That Kermit's pretty good too, though the arms are a little chunky.

    Build a bear is also in the UK I hope we get them here too. Miss piggy looks adorable!

    I also wonder if piggy will have costumes based on ones she has actually worn? White silk from s1 would be great.

    Oh wow, they both look so dang HUGGABLE! :D Piggy, oh my gosh, she is definitely the best Piggy plush I've seen, ever!! Of course, it might depend on how much stuffing you get, or how well the BaB builder stuffs her proportion-wise, but IIRC, sometimes the heads are pre-stuffed already? Anyway, I'll definitely make a special trip to Reno just for these guys when they're released!

    Finally, a Piggy plush that shows how beautiful she really is!! And Kermit, wow, his likeness hasn't been the best over the years, can't wait to own them both!

    Thanks for the news TC!!

    The bodies look a bit out of proportion to me-more like Muppet Babies bodies.

    My question is WHY is Fozzie not the first one? But it's already been asked. I can see these really taking off, and it would be amazing if the set listed gets produced. Fozzie in particular would look GREAT in Build A Bear's style. It'd also be great if they did a VoiceBox with the Muppet Show theme on it.

    EDIT: Waitwaitwait... is that "Miss Piggy Puppet" I spot at the very bottom of that image? Are these guys gonna be PUPPETS?

    ...wait, that's right Carl! I see that too!!! this is gonna be great!!

    ..and as Danny said.. They do sometimes have smaller characters( like when rudolph was the featured build a character, They had Bumble, Hermie etc..) So Maybe it's possible that Kermit and Piggy will be buildable, while Fozzie, Gonzo, Scooter, and Walter will be mini's...Still cool either way!!
