    Agreed. Cuz since when has his "face" ever been the same color throughout? Never, that's when. Hopefully they'll be able to apply some kind of paint variation for his nose, buuuuuuut... it's not a deal-breaker IMO. He's really cute-lookin'. ;) Well, with pupils added a' course! :D

    Gonzo's nose, whatever foam it's made of, refracts light and becomes soooooo many colors. You can see hints of yellow, orange, purple, blue... green sometimes. That can only be achieved if you airbrush, like Palisades did.

    But the standard is a very light bluish purple, if not a very light blue (Muppet Babies style). I'd say that would look far better on the Pop Gonzo than that yellow nose he has now.

    That reminds me of when I was 8 and I started noticing Gonzo's nose being different colors depending on the production, I was so confused. To me his nose looked white in The Muppet Movie, purple in The Great Muppet Caper, and blue in The Muppets Take Manhattan, and seemed it'd often look either purple or blue to me depending on the production.

    Maybe Gonzo has a Mood Nose.

    Hmm, Mood Nose Gonzo. I'd buy one of those.

    When it comes to merchandising, it's usually been Muppet Baby-fied and routinely just a light blue...


    Even the first Palisades Gonzo toy was a light blue, just with more detailing...

    This first wave of toys looks like a mix of Palisades series 1 and 2.

    I wonder if series 2 (if it gets that far) will include Floyd, Janice, and Zoot.

    Anybody know if these kinds of toys normally include accessories?

    Nah, no accessories with Funko POP! At least the couple that I've purchased from the Disney Store haven't had any, so I assume it is that way with the rest of the range.

    It feels like 2002 all over again, though I'm not as excited as I was when Palisades first presented Muppet items at Toy Fair. And it should be more exciting, since we don't have any idea what other Muppet stuff will be presented (with the success of the new movie I'm expecting a lot more), while with the action figure line we knew they'd reveal the entire 2002 line-up (only for series 3 and 4 to end up being released in 2003).

    I hope they make it to a series 2. I'd hate for the line to be canceled before both Snowths get made. ;)

    Quite a bit of Dr. Teeth stuff. And these bobbleheads look better than the Muppet bobbleheads that came out in 2002 or 2003. I guess it helps that it's more than just two characters, but even those seem to look better than the old Kermit and Miss Piggy bobbleheads. And no, I've never owned those bobbleheads.

    I was told they already have plans for more POP style waves, I can try to find out about the bobbleheads

    Liking the bobbleheads. As for the Pop style things, cool for including Mahna Mahna and a Snowth (and pupils for everyone!) but I'm not liking how far apart the eyes are set on Fozzie, Dr. Teeth, and Animal. It messes up the Magic Triangle something awful.

    The eyes look a lot better! Looking forward to seeing these in real live.

    i've got to admit to initially being excited about these, but (except for Teeth) the art doesn't quite have the charm that it should. I've worked at translating designs onto urban vinyl so I get the attempt at simplification. The Little Big Planet people nailed a lot of the art whereas this is just kinda stale looking. I'll have to wait and see what they actually look like.

    But hey, how cool is it that Dr. Teeth has hit the big time!!??
