    Today's top spots appear to be in this order: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, Pepe, Animal, Rizzo (with Statler, Waldorf, Swedish Chef, Beaker, Bunsen and Sam in the background).

    The classic structure I miss is: Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Scooter, Rowlf, Animal (with the Mayhem band more heavily featured).

    That's what I'm talkin about, Frogboy! Animal was part of the main group but as part of the Electric Mayhem! I miss those guys. :(

    RIGHT ON!

    Although I am excited for the possibility of a Rizzo from MR/Corgi, whatever they are now. :confused:

    If Fozzie is as far as they go, that'll be alright I guess :o, but I am really hoping for Rowlf and Piggy, then my collection will be complete. Still holding off on preordering Fozzie from Amazon, I'm hoping to get another great discount from DisneyShopping.com, though I'm not sure if they'll beat Amazons price. Got a kid on the way, so every penny counts! :batty:

    If anyone in the US is pre-ordering it might pay you to get on that Amazon deal. In the UK we get these for the same price as you Americans, if not usually a bit cheaper for some reason. That Amazon price at the top of this screen looks like quite a low pre-order price, not the RRP. Here the RRP is listed as being £299 which is around $590. I guess we won't know any final pricing for definite until MR put him up on their site though.

    Any news?
    I guess Travis has decided to ignore q's from us here. Maybe there is someone else in his role?

    Well they look ok, bloody expensive IMO plus on another note, is he allowed to sell them?
  9. ButchCat

    No!

    He is not allowed to sell them and what he's doing is very, very illegal but somehow he seems to be getting away with it both on Amazon and eBay. That's just something I would not dare do and I have the patterns.

    Now I have heard from Travis finally but they seem to be having big problems with getting Fozzie made because they had to let go of the second China place and they are now looking in to a third place. hopefully Travis can find the time to explain whats up.

    They do not want me to start on Miss Piggy at all till they get things figured out and have Fozzie all worked out, which is sad for me as I have no work and now I have to find work. As Snuffy would say "OHHHH Dearrrrrr.

    Take care all and have fun

    Hi. Thanks for stopping by Mr. Angus. Factory shopping again... Oh, why does that remind me of the final serieses of the Muppet figure line? Betha Travis has some stories, which is why he's probably hunting for the right place to handle these from here on out. Wish you well and have a good weekend.

    Hmmm - that is a disappointment but I would rather them get Fozzie right after seeing Terry's magnificent prototypes. I can understand the Piggy decision based on developments. But does that mean that when Fozzie is set up at the third factory that Piggy will be the next replica?

    With this line, nothing is definate and always subject to change.Looks like the first factory wasnt that bad after all and is a problem to find something as good or better.

    I guess we will see Fozzie sometime towards the end of the year now, hopefully at a similar price as i guess that isn't a "lock" right now if they need to negotiate with a new factory. I just hope they get him right, don't care how long it takes - i wonder how long they have the license for, as to how many, and who, they would do after that considering all the development nightmares. I think if they do any after Fozzie, Piggy would be another difficult one for a factory to get right and another high cost one both in time and money - they oughta try a Rizzo first, or maybe a Beaker.

    Hmmm, looks like Was Once Ernie's rumor of no factory currently working on Fozzie in China was correct.

    Along with that, I just had it confirmed that Master Replicas/Corgi/Popco/Whoever-they-are-now has pulled out of Comic-Con. Not good news!

    :p

    P.S. You can check the exhibitor list at Comic Con International Exhibitors

    Yes, thank you. I only called it a "rumor" because I wanted someone more official than me to confirm it. Now Terry has done just that.

    :p

    According to Tom, he still confirmed that Fozzie will be out. May not be today, or tomorrow, but he will be out. Besides, Terry just got this news, but it is good news to know where Fozzie stands at this moment. Now that we have solid facts.


    Also, I am going to ask Tom about the Comic Con thing and find out why.

    Thanks for getting the information to us Terry!

    It now appears the earliest we can expect Fozzie in our homes is next spring. That's likely why Amazon up and cancelled the listing. I'm certain Travis has no intention of releasing a substandard Fozzie replica and that's a good thing. So much development has gone into the bear to lead me to believe that somehow, sometime he will be produced.

    Now we know why Travis hasn't been posting. There's just too much going on to report to us and our responses on it; especially considering that information can change on a dime. Travis will most likely drop by to post once Fozzie is really on the assembly line.

    I'm glad MR/Corgi caught this early and was able to bow out of the factory arrangement. Many times this is not the case and the product representatives have to stand behind minor visual defects they might not particularly care for. :coy:

    I would rather wait and get him at his best than to not get him done correctly. It is nice to know that Travis has stepped in and making him the right way.
