    I like your charater choices rowlfy too.
    I stated in another thread that I would love to see Uncle Deadly as the Emperor.

    Pondering it, I think Lew Zeland would have made a better Lando...only because of the 'stache. Rowlf wouldn't have been a bad choice either.

    I like them...especially the Scooter and Link. I'd probably get those two if they were realeased. I'd probably get Animal eventually too...

    EDIT: Just realized that it's a three pack. Guess I'll have to get it now.

    Meh, I might end up collecting these. The first series was sort of interesting. These, however, look like redressed, pale facsimiles of the Palisades figures. Besides, Rowlf definitely should be Lando. I'm glad there's more Muppet merchandise. I just wish they were at least getting some B-level talent on them. :smirk:

    Odd character choices, IMO. I was really gunning for Rowlf as Lando, Scooter woulda made a great Lobot. As for Animal... hmm, that's kind of a toughie for the original trilogy - he'd make a great Darth Maul though.

    Maybe Animal as the Emperor? ;) Lol, I dunno. These are alright (Link is AWESOME), but Scooter looks a bit off. Still, I want em, ha ha.

    Oooooooooh yeah! I hadn't thought of that, Animal as a sandperson would be PERFECT!!! Or what about Bossk?!? Dang, I wish they wouldve done someone different for our favorite crazed drummer... :halo:

    The Scooter especially. I like the other two, but Scooter, while it's great to see more merchandising with him, just doesn't seem like a good character fit. Plus, it looks like a fan made thing if anything. And while the Animal figure is pretty cool, why isn't there another character playing Boba Fett, since he's been assigned Tuskin Raider. But the Link in Carbonite is the one I'm seriously eyeballing.

    They really should do more exotic characters. I'd LOVE to see an Uncle Deadly as The Emperor. Maybe extend the line even further with Star Wars prequel characters. Walter would make a great Anakin. He could always use more merchandising.

    Personally, I'd love to see a Muppet Babies Star Wars set at some point. Everyone like in that episode... maybe a rare chase R2-Bean2....

    I thought, for the sake of comedy, that a penguin could be the emperor. Get it? Emporer Penguin?(cricket noises) But not for the sake of comedy, I would buy uncle deadly as the emporer in a heartbeat.

    I also somehow, now here me out here, can picture Marvin Suggs as a Tusken Raider. It just sort of clicks somehow.

    Casey, you almost done drawing them up? Sorry, I'm just kind of excited to see them! :)
  15. CaseytheMuppet

    CaseytheMuppet Well-Known Member

    Oh, I'm still working on them. I've been trying to look up other pics of the Star Wars characters, but there is so much detail! I'll post them soon! Sorry for the wait!:o

    galagr Well-Known Member

    Oh, that's fine, I'd rather have you put detail in them then rush and not be as detailed. Take your time! :)

    Ok, so here they are! (Finally) Sorry they aren't in color, my scanner is stupid. ;) So you know the first five, but here are some of my ideas!
    STAR WARS: Episode IV

    Okay, so these weren't my ideas, but, come on, I just had to draw Link!
    Chewwocka and Ham Solo
    You know those creepy little Jawa things that steal C-3PO and R2-D2?
    Rizzo and the Jawats.
    Another obscure character! Here is the spy outside the Mos Eisley Cantina, played by Droop!
    In the action figure line, Sam plays Obi-Wan. I felt that he should play a different character. (As you will see later.) Oh, and also a Clucktrooper!
    And finally, Animal as a Tusken Raider. Because you guys asked. V will be coming soon!

    This is AWESOME! I love the idea of Droop as an Imperial Spy! Too bad they already made a Sam as Obi- Wan, because Dr. Strangepork would be a good choice. Nice drawings!

    I'm not liking Rizzo as Yoda. Any suggestions? :shifty:
