    I was commenting more on Accuracy, but as a cuddly plush you've got a point. Overall he does look fantastic, and so does Piggy. As far as I know, they don't do different regions for UK/US like the Disney Store does, so should be no worries there either.

    LOL - as in A Very Merry Muppet Christmas, we saw that over Christmas. That scene confirmed Husbands suspicions of Scooter as the the token LGBT Muppet.

    Conjuring new meaning to purchasing a scooter skin at Build an Bear and giving him a good stuffing.

    I can't believe I just wrote that. I blame IAVMMC for giving us that image.

    Thank goodness, this is the first time I've been excited over Muppet soft toys in a long time.

    I think I love you. ;)

    I'm a Rocky Horror veteran, so if I get a Scooter doll he's gonna wind up in fishnets and a corset no matter what

    Snap, been a RSH & RHPS Fan for over 25 years. I won't even go into the amount of props we have in our house.

    LOL! That's a bizarre crossover if i've ever seen one. And a mental image I didn't need...

    As I said, I blame It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas for that one:


    We both sat there watching this scene with mouths wide open.

    And we've sat through Avenue Q 5 times and didn't blink but this scene had us squirming.

    Not as bad as the Muppet Rocky Horror I was envisioning. Still pretty strange, but much less so then the gang in fishnets with Tim Curry. Waldorf and Statler as the "Audience" fits a little too well, though.

    I think Muppet Rocky Horror would be fantastic:

    Gonzo as the Narator
    Piggy and Kermit as Riff Raff and Magenta
    Annie Sue as Columbia
    Wayne and Wanda as Brad & Janet
    Bunsen Honey Dew as Frank N Furter
    Beeker as Rocky
    Dr Teeth as Eddie
    Fozzie as Dr Scott

    What do you think? It may keep the Muppet Theatre Open

    Scooter could be Christopher Biggins. I'm sorry for going completely off this subject.

    I've played Frank for over two decades now, yet I had no idea what was up with the cage dancer thing until i looked it up aafter seeing VMX. Yikes!

    (Am I a bad person for wishing I could get a clearer shot of the cage dancer puppet so I could see if he has any piercings? We RHPS casties are fanatical about costume accuracy.)

    Lol, I gotta say... I'd never have envisioned this thread going in this direction, haa.

    That's Build a Bear costumes and accessories for your. LOL

    I'm not sure about piercing but the whole thing was definitely out of character. Fozzie as a pick pocket and piggy as a cat lady.

    Lol, nah, you don't have to be embarrassed! I used to do that all the time with toys, even before my Son was born! :D I pity the people who don't allow themselves to find fun and happiness in so-called "childish" things. I'm the biggest kid I know!! Toys are fun, and fun is good. :)

    If Scooter does happen, I'd LOVE to buy one, but I just don't think I could do all that kiddy fun stuff. Is it ridiculous to ask if they sell some er... prestuffed?

    if I were any good at sewing to make things (I know patch ups... that's it), I'd try to make myself a Scooter Super Hero uniform like that action figure/Linda Carter episode.

    I always thought that this with Scooter in IAVMMCM was sooo sick!

    I just did a slow-mo of that scene, and it's way creepier that way. Plus, I could see that his eyes were closed Muppet-Babies style, meaning his pupils were blinked out rather than him having eyelids. I never noticed that before.

    No piercings, though.
