    I did think it was odd that Kermit was so much larger than piggy. The scale factor wouldn't have bothered me so much if they were the same size.

    Maybe cuz they knew a bunch of adult dudes were going to buy Kermit for sure, and not so much Piggy? ;) Lol. Not to pick on my favorite Pork Princess, but merch based on her DOES have a history of not selling so well. I'm picking her up next time we get over there though, assuming I can find a really good one like I did with Kermie.

    Did anyone else buy a custom sound box? I did! :) I keep changing his saying, then I hide it away in either my Sons or my Kermit's mouth. Good stuff, hope to post a video soon. :D

    It's been a couple of extra-Muppety days for my household... of course yesterday with the release of The Muppets on blu-ray (got the Wocka Wocka combo pack, AWESOME!), then this morning I had to run into Walmart again, found a new big display and bought the Sticker Book for my Son. Now, just about an hour ago, my Build-A-Bear order arrived... our Kermit's are no longer naked!! :)

    Got the classic Cowboy Kermit from TMM for my Kermit, and chose the Cozy Christmas Kermit look from LTS for my Sons'. Love 'em!! :D

    I have not been to Walmart yet since the release of the DVD. Do they have any new merchandise that came out at Walmart with the release of the DVD?

    Aww your Kermie's look so cute!!! I love mine too!! I love the cowboy Kermit! Just like in the first muppet movie! And I might have to go back at some point and get the coat and scarf he really looks good in that!

    Thanks! :) Though the scarf is actually from the 2004 Macy's Holiday Grover! :D My most favorite Grover plushie ever! I'd taken his hat and scarf off as soon as I received him (from an eBay win), and knew right away I'd be using it for my Boy's Kermit. ;)

    Hey man, just wanted to check-in with your thread. Does your friend know if more Muppets are going to be made available at Build a Bear? I know online, Kermit and Piggy are both "limited availability", and my BaBW is almost out of both of them, so I'm really hoping more characters are in the works.

    Cheers!
    :)

    At mine, they barely had enough to fill one bin combined! ;) I took that as a good sign. Plus, we always make sure to make that our first stop in the mall, that way we're carrying our Muppets around and they're getting free promotion! Ha ha. Ive told about three different people each time that they better hurry down to BaB before they sell out, only after they/their kids asked where I got my Kermit. :D

    Darn right I do! :D Like I said, we usually got to BaB first, the girls there remember us from the morning we first came in and built our Kermits (on the second day they had them! :) ), and they love our enthusiam for the entire BaB experience. We usually end up with another stuffed animal, and a couple outfits/accessories for either Kermit or Piggy. Then yeah, we're walking through the mall, visiting other shops, and it never fails; there's always a few people looking at our BaB Muppets with their "fan" eyes, and I tell em that they've got a few left at BaB if they want their own! :excited: I usually pass them later on and they're carrying a BaB box, just makes me feel good.

    Oh, and I'm sharing pics in the other thread right quick if'n you wanna see what our BaB Muppets & Friends have been up to! ;)

    Hi mods! I was hoping you could please combine all these (4) Build-A-Bear Muppet threads into the fourth one (that Phillip created) that's pinned on the top of the Merchandise forum please? :flirt: This is the original thread, but Phillips is pinned at the top, I just think it would be great to have all the comments, reviews, and pictures together in one thread instead of closing the earlier threads.

    Thanks much! I hope my request won't bother anybody.
    :)

    Are they sold out online over there as well? I still can't believe how fast they went, instore-wise, that was CRAZY! :crazy: Hopefully you can find some for a fair price on eBay or something. Good luck! ;)

    we don't like using ebay. I prefer amazon.

    Don't blame you one bit. :D

    I asked a question on Build-A-Bears Facebook page, about more Muppets, but they said nothing is planned right now, and that they'd let us know right away if so.

    So, boo. :cry: I really wanted BaB Rowlf and Scooter! The band woulda been great too. Hopefully when the next movie comes out we'll see more BaB Muppets.

    The last time I was there which hasn't been that long probably the first part of last month they still had plenty of Kermit's and Piggy's at the Build a Bear by me.
