    I'd understand the Animal plush if it has been released after Muppets Most Wanted came out.[​IMG]

    I thought Rowlf looks one of the worst, with those misplaced pupils and over sized feet. But hang on, who is the bottom blue guy? If that is suppose to be Sam, then he just went to the worst! I haven't seen these before. Did they get released? I have seen a soccer Kermit by Igel, but I don't think he was wearing Adidas.

    These were Madrid soccer Muppet plush toys released in the late 90s early 2000s. I found this on eBay one time and save the picture. In all honesty I think these were released for the 25th anniversary.

    Seen this Sweetums PVC figure lots of times, but only realised now that he is out of character. One, he is not wearing his "scarecrow" clothes, and two, he is holding a club, yet he is not violent. He is just playful.

    didn't he carry a club in the Frog Prince?

    True, he swings around a club in The Frog Prince. I'm not sure if he ever does it outside of the dungeon chase scene, it's been a while since I saw it. I don't remember him using his club after being established on the Muppet Show though.

    The early 2000s was a weird time for Muppet merchandise, especially the great amount of disco stuff. The Animal as John Travolta tshirt, which my mom got at Walt Disney World, those Statler and Waldorf hippie dolls, things like that.
