    You know Walter would be interesting.... I could picture Scooter or Rowlf..... but I'm having a hard time picturing Walter...I mean I would certainly get it but it is hard to picture.

    I was browsing around at a Hallmark store today, and they had the Piggy and Animal statues. Piggy didn't look so good, but I thought Animal looked fine. I plan to buy the Gonzo one at some point.

    I now have the Kermit, Piggy, Animal and Kermit & Piggy Book Ends. I still need Statler & Waldorf, Fozzie and Gonzo with Camilla. These are a great collection. I just painted my room Kermit green this week and I will be displaying all my Muppet merch soon. I have about 20 boexes of stuff. This room will be awesome.

    I have Kermit and Piggy...so far I'm successfully resisting the urge to buy others. SO FAR.

    The only one left that I need is Gonzo. Maybe this weekend.

    I finally bought the Gonzo and Camilla figure yesterday to complete my collection. I really like these figures.

    I should be getting gonzo and the kermit and piggy bookends for my birthday in three weeks then I'll have them all. I wonder if more will be released!! I love the look of the kermit bookend.

    I'm sad now...the Kermit I have has a really light shade of green paint that is off color, which I figured all of them would be close to that. But the other day I saw one in the store that had a much more Kermit green shade which I would have loved...I may still end up buying that one also, though. :)

    where is the best place to buy them?
  12. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    The only place I've found them is at Hallmark, and out of the two Hallmarks I have, only one of them ever has them. Also, you could check online.

    I had posted on Jim Shore's facebook wall a while ago and I believe he said there are more Muppets in the works. Sadly he didn't specify which ones yet, but fingers crossed for an Electric Mayhem set!

    Cool, thanks for letting us know about that, floydnjanicefan! Here's hopes to more.

    I'd particularly love a Swedish Chef one, maybe with him at a counter attempting to cook something. A Muppet labs one with Bunsen and Beaker might also be ideal.

    So far I have Jim Shore's Kermit and Fozzie. I bought Gonzo on Amazon, but when he came the feathers on top of his head were clearly bent out of shape, so I returned it, and have yet to buy a replacement. There seems to be 2 versions of the JS Kermit, one were he has a design on his chest and one where he's just plain green. I'm curious as to which of the two is more rare? I have the plain green one.

    Hm, interesting thought there, Scooterforever. I wasn't aware that there were two different Kermit designs out there. For what it's worth, I have the plain green one and have yet to see the other one anywhere.

    I still need a Gonzo one also. I now have all of the other ones that I picked up at my local Hallmark, but have yet to have found a Gonzo one lurking around my area.

    From what I've noticed, the "quilted" Kermit is more common online, whereas the plain green version seems to be more common in stores.

    I actually got the Fozzie for only $26 at my local Hallmark; I don't know why it was on sale, as it is not damaged or anything, but since it was $26 instead of the $40 I had expected, I had enough money left to buy Hallmark's Iron Man Avengers ornament:).

    I was very impressed with my Hallmark's featuring of these. They really displayed them well and at a somewhat prominent space so that people at least gave them some eyesight.
