    Depends, if there are certain characters you particularly like go for them. Personally, Ive strived to get at least all of the individual characters and any variants I like.(although Im still workin on it) As for just which ones are "worth getting" thats kind of a personal preferance. Aside from some sticky paint issues they're aren't really any figures that are downright better than others imo. Id just say look at them and see which sculpts and whatnot you like the best. Although since you've already got cabin boy gonzo/rizzo id say go for Capt. Smollet Kermit, Sam Arrow and if you have the money and want the variant, the ghost of sam arrow figure. Its really all comes down to which figures you like the most. Im sure you can easily get a full list of the line around here somewhere.

    Er, for RyNo's benefit... The only lunchbox+figures that should be recognized as part of the collection are the following:
    1 Lunchbox Kermit, the first Industry Exclusive release from Wizard World Philadelphia 2002.
    2 Palisades Collector's Club sign-up lunchbox kit with GITD Koozebane Kermit.
    3 Palisades Collector's Club sign-up lunchbox kit with Checkered Suit Gonzo.
    All others were just a surplus of extra figures packed in a lunchbox wrapped with shiny plastic that Toy Fare/Wizard World tried to sucker us into buying. Yeah, there was an element of mystery and chase with the Tux Kermit... But when they did it again with the Fozzie and Gonzo, we knew it wasn't worth it.

    *Should consider posting my own collection list sometime as well.

    Thanks Count :)

    I have the WW 2002 "naked" Kermit lunchbox and the other two you mentioned... I'd like to have the others tbh, but I'm not desperate. They seem to be harder to find than the White Tux Rowlf... I've seen a few Rowlfs for sale, but they were all for crazy money.

    You should post your collection. It would be cool to see :)

    Cool, Count. How much did you have to pay for the Sesame figures? Or were they gifts?
  6. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    For 2HM and Guy, about $1600, for Oscar and Ernie $1800. Now consider that and do the math.
    Would love to get the proto sculpt of :batty: someday though.

    Looking through your list, Ed (which is very impressive, btw), I see that you mentioned that your name is in the special thanks section of Steppin' Out Bunsen and Beaker. Could you elaborate on exactly how that came about?

    They really would have been awesome. The ones that I would have especially wanted more than any on that list would be Patrol Link Hogthrob, Clueless Morgan, Mulch, Seymour and Pepe, Lewis Kazagger, and Andy and Randy.

    Hey Hubert, sorry I didn't read your post earlier.

    What I did to earn "Special Thanks" recognition was a job that kept growing while trying to get it done. At some point in 2003, between Series 3 and 4, Ken posted that the lineups for the four series due for release that year were set, though a bit of shifting took place. So he was interested in what lineups fans and people who were buying the figures "might" want to see from S7 onwards. He laid out the rules for you to come up with "at least" four to five full serieses of figures of four figures each, with whatever exclusives and/or playsets you would want. I volunteered to gather all the individual submissions and then organize them into a handy-dandy easy-to-view table format. Each time I thought I was finished, someone else would come up with their ideas that had to be added. They didn't stop at S7-S12 either, some went as far as sixteen serieses. And when entries finally did die down, I polished the file sending it off to Ken's addy for which I got my name on the Tux Bunsen & Beaker pack.

    Awesome! Really neat that you were able to fill that role in the production of the line, Ed. :)
