I am always happy to be kept in suspenders!...wait...no...
I'm certainly interested though!
GAH! This is killing me!
i'm dieing! i must know what is going to become of our photo puppet line! i need to know before i explode! *crazy harry blows up the room*
The Press Release will be announced in the next week or so.I will be receiving a copy of it and then I can reveal who the Company are.They are working already to have at least one, if not more, developement samples for Comic Con.In the meantime, maybe you could listen to some elivator music to make the time go by.L.O.L.
Do you know what character they are going to do first?
just so I stop thinking about this... Who is the "gentle giant" you speak of?
A company that is kinda like Side Show Collectibles. They make statues and maquettes from various movies. You can go to there website here:
Gentle Giant is not the company.Gentle Giant do a lot of marquettes, like the Giant cartoon Yoda sculpture.
We will have to wait and see.I did know, but they are changing it.
ok, I see
so they're DEFINITELY doing a different character?
They need to do someone small like Pepe!
I will totally buy Pepe. And I will buy tiny outfits separately too. Tiny hoodies. Tiny black turtlenecks. Tiny gold chains.
I can understand not launching this new licensor Muppet poser line with a large character like Fozzie Bear, but I really hope they do. They could go with a Reporter Kermit as I have suggested, a smaller character like Rizzo or Pepe, or maybe even Miss Piggy or Beaker. Just spit-balling. I still hope it's Fozzie even if he is difficult to ship due to his largeness.
I think Pepe would be a good choice as a first poser. He's widely recognized.
I disagree with Pepe. People have a hard enough time tell Rowlf from Fozzie, or is it Fuzzy, or Fonzie Bear. I think Miss piggy would be a great way to kick it off. Even Rowlf or Scooter if not Fozzie. At this point I will take Pepe to get things rolling..
In my experience most young folk remember Pepe's name more than Fozzie Bear's. It's weird and kind of sad, but it's out there. However, the older collector with more cash to spend on such items would likely prefer a Fozzie Bear. Heck, these days people can't even spell Jim Henson correctly.
But most people from the 70's will remember Fozzie over Pepe. I didn't know who Pepe was until I realized they made another Muppet show in the early 90's Most of the older generation will remember Fozzie due to movies and the Muppet Show. I ask people today if they know who Pepe is and they didn't even know who he was let alone a puppet from a show. You say Fozzie the Bear and most everyone will remember Him with Kermit and Miss Piggy.
But Fozzie is eight feet tall! Most people don't have room for a 9-foot Muppet. Pepe is bite sized and would look great on my desk.
