    The numbers read 1/200 - 2/200 for the standard and 1/50 - 50/50 for each variant so i'm not sure what 276 means. I'd welcome a reprinting, but that's the nature of limited editions. Maybe they can widen the scope for future submissions. :confused:

    Exactly, ugh. :grr:
    For real!! :D Why oh why are our beloved Muppets so undervalued?!? And it just keeps happening, that's what's so maddening. Here's the stuff that's really gotten to me the past year:

    • Jamie's "Muppetational Mosaic" T-shirt selling out on Threadless, still no reprints (even during/after the success of the new movie?!? A real "duh" moment).
    • Too many edits on the actual film, especially the HUGE plot-point regarding Tex and laughing.
    • Very little movie tie-in merchandise, then, surprise surprise, no restocks for AGES (and the restocked Kermit plush at Disney Stores are sadly kinda ugly. :p )
    • The 10 or so different versions of the home release, confusing anyone who didn't want the Wocka Wocka edition.
    • Now the too few prints of Jamie's AWESOME TMS 35th Anniversary piece, maybe/hopefully they'll do another run of unsigned prints, to save Jamie's invaluable hands. *insert "talented" Muppet Smiley here*

    Hmm, I'm not usually one for ranting, or does this even qualify? I'm pretty mellow and happy for the most part. :laugh: I sure don't mean to put a dampener on this thread, this beautiful work of art is the happiest news!! :D Anyhow, I bought one of these beautiful prints, cuz really, of course I wouldn't miss this for anything!! James, the FrogBoy of yore, you sir, are a Master of Muppets! :wisdom:

    But yeah, if they do another run of the "red carpet" variant, I'm in. I'll be sure to visit Frisco myself, and hopefully get a personalized signature from the artiste himself! ;)

    Cheers!
    :)

    Oh wow!! Now ALL of them are sold out?!? I bet that site has never seen anything go so fast before, it's gotta be a record.

    Sincerely so, SO sorry to those who missed out! :sympathy: I didn't get the version I reeeeeely wanted, but believe me, I count myself VERY lucky to have gotten one at all. :halo: ("halo" smiley in lieu of non-existent "thankful" smiley, lol. Looks like we still need more smilies Jamie! Ha ha)

    I think I know why a lot of the Muppet merchandise is going in the direction of "limited editions".Sadly, Muppet items dont sell that well.I am sure we have all seen Muppet items in stores that have been marked down in the reduced to clear bin after taking a long time to sell.This is damaging to a licensor planing to make Muppet merchandise as they dont want to lose money.However, if they only make a small amount to undercut demand, then they will sell out and bring confidence to the manufactuers.I guess there will be fans who miss out and then create a market for skelpers to prey on the desparate and make money, but at least it is better than no merchandise.

    Thanks everybody for your support!!!
    They won't likely release this one again, but this is likely the first of several pieces this year. Stay tuned.​

    Awesome piece of art James!

    I was lucky and happened to check my iPhone just as they went up for sale and was able to order the Red Carpet version. Next steps are to wait for it to arrive, then get it framed.

    Several more designs from you, or others, or... both?! ;) Cooler than cool, either way. You can never have too many Muppety masterpieces on the wall, the more the merrier! :dreamy:

    Yesterday this chat forum had a banner at the foot of the page linking to the art work site. The muppets logo had droop draped over the 'm' but I can't see him in the actual piece?? Is droop in it or was he edited!! I'd love to see a better pic of that banner if anyone can help??

    In the actual piece, Droop is in between Kermit and Gonzo with his nose hanging over the "E" of "Muppets". Hope that helps!

    Glad to hear it!!! The silkscreen printers did a beautiful job! Could you tell me how it came? Rolled in a tube? Wrapped in plastic? Any materials with it?

    They did indeed do a beautiful job (as did you, of course!). It came rolled in brown paper within a very sturdy shipping tube, via Fed Ex Home delivery. No plastic wrap. The only additional materials it came with were an invoice and certificate of authenticity.
