    Hi Guys,

    That website is cheaper, the same price for First Mate Piggy, $136, but My Fair Piggy is only $191.00, thats a much better price! The outfits are cheaper too, $85, and the wigs are $25?

    Does anyone know, if you buy a dressed doll, such as My Fair Piggy or First Mate, do the wigs still come off to use the other wigs and outfits or do you HAVE to buy the basic to use them?

    I would assume the wigs come off, but I can let you know in a few days, when I get her in the mail.

    Can we see pics? Whats the packaging like?

    Chris
  5. She comes tied to the inside of her box with three ribbons one around her neck, waist and ankles. There's a thin soft pice styrofoam placed the front of her dress that the waist ribbon was tied over. Her wig was already on her head (There's are two pieces of velcro on the back of her head and other on the inside of her wig that help it stay on) She a hair net over the wig. Her gloves, shoes and pearls each come in their clear bag stapled to the inside of the box. With tissue papers covering her.

    Her dress is a bit darker then in the pictures of her. I showed her to my sister and she said "Was Miss Piggy always that sexy?"

  7. Yes that's the one I have. I do have one complaint though, I wish the doll had come with a doll stand, but other than that I just love her!

    Piggy Pics ARE HERE!

    I just received Piggy and she is absolutely beautiful. I have attached three pictures. One picture is of the box, the next is a pic of a close up of the logo and the last is Piggy herself. To be honest, she looks more like her Muppet Caper days...Love this collectible of her. Tonner has really done her justice! The only thing I am disappointed about is there is no doll stand included and I will have to buy one for her.

    This would have to be the first time that we get to see a representation of Miss Piggy with her bare hands.I wonder if her shoes come off and we get to see if she has hoof toes or a human stylised feet.There hasnt been much photographic reference, and I think there was 2 styles how they did her feet.

    The pig has always had normal flesh colored feet instead of hooves. Remember the glass slippers she wore in Muppet Caper? However, I do not believe the puppet has toes. I don't think there's any official Muppet reference that portrays Miss Piggy with hooves, but in the 70s there were a lot of poor licensor reference drawings. Hope that helps. :)

    Muppetperson, her shoes do come off and she does not have any toes, its just round, no hooves. She is a gorgeous representation of Piggy as you can tell in the picture I posted. I am very happy with her. She also comes with matching panties...by the way.

    To those who have received their Piggy dolls and have taken/posted pics, I heartily recommend you write a review with more pics attached and submit it for article consideration. Send it to theprawncracker and title it "MC Writers' Guild: Miss Piggy Tonner Doll Review."

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. There's no deadline, so if you have previous engagements, that's perfectly understandable. Just hope you have a good day.

    Looking Good.

    I always imagine her feet to be just rounded, human shape, but no toes. And no hooves!

    Just dainty, glamorous, perfectly rounded tootsies.

    Anyway! I am hoping to hold off until First Mate Piggy is released, a real dilema now, I was gonna get My Fair Piggy, then when I seen FMP I just had to get that one, I cant afford to get both...................or can I?

    Id love my fair Piggy, but I think first mate wins!

    I also like the basic one, but I dont like the outfits for her, wigs are good though!

    I have also just found this photo, dont think its been shown on here yet? Its a piccy of Piggy takes Manhattan doll, her outfit looks a lot more red than on the official pics, almost looks Christmassy.................only 5 months away! hehe

    I remember someone posted here about Miss Piggy's feet details because they wanted to make a sculpture and it was brought up which way they should go and I think there was 2 different references.It might have been something about toes.I am not sure now, but it might have something to do with the Hawaiian pin up photo and another reference photo.But the feet were different somehow.

    It wasn't hooves. :p Maybe some reference has toes, but usually it doesn't. The official guides from Henson and Disney that have been used for over a decade have solid pink toeless feet like the Tonner doll.

    This really isn't what I'm into by a long shot... but that First Mate Piggy is too hard to resist.
