    Tuesday is the day! James Carroll's anticipated art print of the "Muppet Theatre" will officially be released in a limited edition of only 300 units. James has been a major contributor at Muppet Central and other fan projects over the years, so it's with great excitement that he's now releasing an official silk screen print from Acme Graphics.

    James' beautiful recreation of the Muppet Theatre "celebrates over 35 years of show" and will be available as a 18 inch by 24 inch multi-colored silk screen art print each individually signed by the artist. A standard edition and two variants will be released. The work of art was commissioned by Disney licensor Acme Graphics and will be sold for $60 each at Darkinkart.com beginning at random times on Tuesday April 24.

    Below is the "Muppet Theatre" standard edition as a silk screen limited edition to 200 prints each signed by James Carroll. Order here when available beginning at a random time on Tuesday April 24.


    Below is the "Muppet Theatre" red carpet variant as a silk screen limited edition to 50 pieces each signed by James Carroll. Order here when available beginning at a random time on Tuesday April 24.


    Below is the "Muppet Theatre" neon night variant as a silk screen limited edition to 50 pieces each signed by James Carroll. Order here when available beginning at a random time on Tuesday April 24.


    Which version is your favorite? Let us know. If you plan on ordering one of these limited edition prints, please like this post.

    Woah. Got the regular edition, but both variants were gone by the time I got there... Ugh, those are going to be pricey on eBay.

    Crud, I really wish they would say an actual time for those of us who can't watch the screen constantly... I reeeeeeally wanted the red variant. Hey Jamie, will they be doing any reprints? I dunno, I've never bought anything like this before, woulda been my first.

    On the off chance, did anyone buy extra to resell at a fair price to those of us who missed out? I imagine that some snipers got in just to resell at a much higher price on eBay, but hopefully some true fans thought ahead (unlike myself, lol).

    These are signed and numbered (there's a funny story of me walking all three 40 pound boxes down 4 flights of stairs and to the Fed Ex office two blocks away to attest to that LOL) so i don't think they're planning reprints. :sympathy: I didn't expect them to sell this quickly. :eek:

    There are two red carpet and two neon variants on eBay already. $200-250.

    So annoying!

    Glad I managed to get the standard print ordered before they all sell out.

    Great story about the signings James. Your hand must have been aching after signing all 300! Lol

    Really? Wow! I couldn't afford that. LOL! Signing and numbering took about 5 hours. The numbering is cute because it looks like Beauregard is sweeping it up. :oops:

    That's unbelievable! How frustrating to people who actually wanted these for themselves to have people like that who just try to take advantage.

    Phew, I guess I am lucky I got one just now! I wonder which number I got? My receipt says something about 276 on it, could that mean there are only 24 left? Surely they could consider a reprint if you sell out all 3 editions in under 24 hours! I mean, seriously, how much more proof of demand does there need to be?

    muppetperson Well-Known Member

    Mine had 276 as well so that must be the item number.But there would be 48 or less now.:)
