these look really good sadly i can't get them here but man o man would i love that sam and bunsen and it was a good idea to put link as han solo i hope they release more of these pepe as a jawa statler or waldorf aspalpatine
Hmmm... honestly? I think the designs looked better on paper than they do in 3-D. Maybe these are just prototypes, though, with some tweaking left to be done.
It's about what I expected. Hoped for something better, but these are okay. I like that the helmets come off. Might pick them up.
Some additional pics have been posted...
If you look at that baseball on his desk, you can approximate their size. I'm still not as thrilled with their sculpts as I was with the original sketches.
But I'll definitely buy them, come fall.
Oh my... I love them! I love them all! Can't wait to purchase Han. <3
By the look of the baseball compared to beaker, they don't look like they're in scale.
In scale to what? To the Palisades toys? Sadly, no, I asked that very question when the designs were first announced publicly, last August. Their reply was that they would be smaller than the Palisades toys.
Or did you mean they're not in scale to each other? Beaker does look a little short compared to Sam. Shrug.
In scale with palisades. Beaker looks like the same size as palisades kermit!
Hey guys, remember those official pics that I linked above?
Well, in the article (http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2011/06/the-force-is-strong-with-the-muppets-at-disney-parks/) it mentioned that the pics were taken on the desk of a guy for whom-- simply by chance-- I already had the email address!
I wrote him on the 1st, and just got a reply as to the specific heights of the figures.
He only lists specific heights for two of them: Kermit is 3-1/4" tall, and Piggy is 4-1/4" tall.
But you can gauge the rest from there. I doubt any of them would be over 4-3/4".
Comparing them to the Palisades toys, I just measured a First Mate Miss Piggy at 6-1/8" tall, and a Captain Smollett Kermit at 4-1/2" (sans hat).
The Disney figures will come to approximately the shoulders of their Palisades counterparts.
Beautiful, couldn't have asked for anything more
So I'm guessing late august-mid sept these suckers come out?
thats a good size not to big not to small heres hoping these get sold in the uk when they come out
Sorry, Rowlfy, these are Disney Parks-exclusive merchandise. Even for those of us here in America, it's tricky to nab them. To illustrate, even though I am only one state over from Florida, where Walt Disney World is located, the bulk of my theme park exclusives come from a friend in California who has an annual pass to Disneyland and goes constantly. In fact, at the moment I am awaiting a big box full of stuff he bought me at the opening of Star Tours 2. He would have sent it already, but I keep finding out about additional pieces and sending him back for more, LOL!
