    It looks great. Nicely done and very classy. Much better than the blue. Blue would have looked tacky for this figure. I also like the muppet pictures that wrap around the bottom. I am suprised some of these characters don't have better publicity pictures though.

    He comes with an abundance of accessories, most reused though. He has repaint Clifford's chair, what looks to be repaint Clifford's mic (looks gold), a reused tamborine from Janice, what appears to be a reused magazine from Link with a new sticker of course, and lastly a NEW banjo with strap. Oh, and there is a figure in there too. :D

    The pictures of Jim used look good. I like to ones on the side in particular.

    Wow--very nice indeed! I may let Kermit borrow the banjo from time to time. I doubt Jim would mind. :)

    :eek: That's so awesome! I really wanna get my hands on it, but it's probably gonna be big bucks right? :(

    I'm pretty sure they were gonna let him go for $14.99. WiGgy, am I right?

    Can't wait! :D

    No idea. I would assume so. That's normal.

    No, it's a more premium price figure i think. In the UK it's being sold for much higher than Superbeaker and just less than the backstage. I would guess for the USA you are looking at a price around $20. These are apparently fairly limited.

    Its certainly an excellent figure and packaging too. It would make a nice addition to any muppet collection.

    Is this figure as tall as the Sweetums figure??

    WiGgY Well-Known Member

    um...no. Why would you think that? Sweetums is a 7 foot tall monster. This is the Jim Henson puppet that was a regular hand puppet. It's about Clifford's size I think.

    Wiggy's right; it's the size of Clifford (hence the ability to use Clifford's director's chair). I know I'm getting 2 of these JH figures, one to keep on display and one to play with. And, just think...the Banjo MIGHT fit Kermit! mmmmm! :p

    um...no. Why would you think that? Sweetums is a 7 foot tall monster. This is the Jim Henson puppet that was a regular hand puppet. It's about Clifford's size I think.__________________

    I actually wanted Jim Henson to be a human size compared to the other muppet figs. To be above them instead of their equal like a real human instead of a muppet. But I guess not.

    But he's not a human. He is a puppet. This is not Jim Jenson the human. This is clearly Jim Henson the puppet

    The Father from the Anastasia movie was made into a 12" doll, and I've considered trying to find one of those and customize it into a Jim Henson. I've also been looking for a 12" Jesus doll, too.
