    Ok I sat dowqn the other night and was tryign to come up with 70 figs (14 waves X 5 figures) for the series andin the process triedto figure out where to put 14 of those into sets here were my calls.

    Labs w/ Beaker
    EM drums w/ Animal
    Kitchen w/ Chef
    Swinetrek and Piggy
    bus and Janice
    Koozebane and Kermit

    OK we know those.... some hypotheses

    Taxi w/ Beau
    Vet's Hospital w/ Rowlf as Dr. Bob
    Bear on Patrol w/ Patrol Bear
    MCC set w/ Kermit "Cratchit" and "tiny tim" Robin
    MFS set w/ Bobo/Rentro
    Backstage w/ Sam
    Hispaniola w/ Gonzo
    MTi Island w/ Spa'am or "Benjimina Gunn" Piggy

    not quite the order I think they'll be in but I think it's the sets we're most likely to see.

    >>>Pigs in space w/First mate piggy <<<

    I know this has probably been covered but will Dr. Strangepork be a figure by himself if piggy comes with the Swinetrek?

    the stangepork will be carded in his own card just like ham hog link;-)

    I know that link and Strangepork will be in their PIS duds but at some point i'd like to see Link in that cheesy ascot or the track suit he wore in the Peter Sellers episode. I heard the Link was one of Jim's favorite voices to do and he would torture everyone in the house with it.

    another idea for Link would be in the leather jacket and cap from the Macho Macho Man song--that'd be pretty sweet.

    I love Link--he's another of the "retired" characters I miss. God's gift to women everywhere, and he knows it!

    I think it's more likely that we'd get him in his Patrol Bear Policeman's Uniform before any of these other options, though.

    Extrapolating a playset from one of my favorite muppet lines ever... Beach House playset with Nudist Janice!

    You mean Sardi's? I ate there once, and they have a picture of 'producer' Kermit hanging up! :)

    I'd like to pop out of slient lurking mode to second that opinion... the Backstage is really where everything important/interesting happened. The stage itself was always dressed up as something else.

    Muppet Show: Back Stage (this is an eventual must, in my opinion)

    Muppet Show: Dressing Room

    Muppet Movie: Ghost town Street with Western Kermit and building that Animal's head pops out of (I want this so bad).

    Muppet Movie: Fozzie's car - if after Electric Mayhem paint job version, could come with loose toothpaste billboard that they use to hide in front of. Maybe could be a double set, too, and come with Kermit's Bicycle.

    The Great Muppet Caper: Happiness Hotel

    Muppets Take Manhattan: Muppet Babies Nursery with figs

    Muppets From Space: Spaceship/Music-Stage with one of the other Gonzos as figure.

    I'd love to see all the sets from TMS, including the backstage, Vets, PIS, Patrol Bear, and all of those.

    I think TMM swamp with a bike, Arnie Alligator, log, banjo, and maybe something mirrored under plastic swamp waters would look neat. Don't want Dom Deluise with it, tho.

    Of COURSE Fozzie's Studebacher!! With suitcases?

    Gonzo from TMM With Balloons would be good for a variant, though it's not necessarily a playset.

    I don't forsee the fair as a good playset, but the Miss Piggy with Tiara and Cape would be good, tho (again) not a playset.

    I don't think Happiness Hotel would be much more than a fun idea...it's so BIG it would cost hundreds; however, another car to play with is Beauregard's Cab! :) I can't think of a good playset from TGMC.

    MTM would be a great idea for the cafe and tons of neat variant figures, but I don't see any ideas for realistic playsets here, either.

    I guess I'm suddenly "TMS/figure biased" huh?

    I'd love to see some of the MT characters made, and I am thinking that it's a fancy idea for the whole Muppet Boarding House, of course unpractical. Bobo would be a good variant here, and we can find toy dumptrucks for him to drive.


    (Oh, yeah...and beachhouse with Nudist Janice is a TERRIFIC IDEA!! I am lonely...)

    Happiness Hotel

    You wouldn't have to make the WHOLE Happiness Hotel, just the lobby, could have stairs leading up to nowhere.

    Wait, that wouldn't be much fun. Figures might look nice standing in it, though. You'd really need the lobby and at least the room that Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo check into, and those two rooms alone would make it too big, you're right... two playsets maybe? That wouldn't be overkill I don't think. "Happiness Hotel Lobby" and "Happiness Hotel Guestroom," that one would be really cool, because it could have the folding bed. And the Happiness Hotel bus would be cool. (I'm not saying all at the same time, either... I'm just saying they might be neat eventually).

    I'm not a Happiness Hotel freak, I was just thinking of the possibilities of that particular place.

    I like...
    Swamp w/ Banjo Kermit
    Happiness Hotel w/ Pops
    and suggest...
    Restruant Lounge with (non-variant) Rowlf (ala The Muppet Movie)
  16. Stryder Wolfe

    Stryder Wolfe Well-Known Member

    well, the non-varient rowlf is already coming out seperately...I don't know WHAT figure could come with the lounge since Kermit's already out in his tux too....maybe miss piggy in her outfit from that scene, but that's a lot of piggy...hehe..howsabout "tied up kermit"

    I would like to see the lounge, as that's one of my all time favorite scenes...

    Also wouldn't mind an "Exterior Desert, Night" playset...

    I forgot to check who thought of this playset but it would rock.

    1) a Viking ship from TMS with Viking Pigs (what an awesome idea)

    2) Beareguard and Taxi Cab (a great idea too)

    3) Muppet Nursery with 1-2 babies (Scooter, Fozzie) and then the other ones could be paired together on card (Kermit, Piggy), (Rowlf, Gonzo) they could each come with a nursery accessory.

    4) Newsroom with Newsman

    5) Sam the Eagle and "US" stage

    One question though... with movie playsets, Western Town, Muppet Treasure Island etc. Would Palisades be making all the 'main' cast in those costumes to go along with that playset, or are we only going to get Sam the Eagle from MTI and no one to stand along beside him?
