    It's incredibly lucky. I opened him last and when I saw the clear ear I assumed it was another penguin. It wasn't till I got home and took them fully out of the box I realized I had pulled the chaser. I had just been saying to the Mrs that I'd probably never pull Waldo etc etc.... :D

    The figures come blind boxed so if it's just Floyd you're after you'd likely be better off picking him up off eBay. I got him for 11$ shipped which is two bucks cheaper then buying them blind! :sing:

    Hey guys... The Vinylmation Station just reported according to the Official Disney Vinylmation Blog that the first S2 9" figure will be Sam the Eagle, to be sold starting June 24 at the D-Street store in Florida for $29.93. Dunno why they said it wouldn't be available through the online store, but I thought you peeps would like to know the news. :attitude:

    I've been new to Vinylmation myself, but I'm already hooked. The very first vinylmation I bought was a Muppets series 2 blind box on ebay and I got Zoot :cool:, oh you can bet I was one happy fan boy. Since than I've gotten from Statlor and Beaker from Muppets 1, Phil (from Disney's Hercules) from the Animation series, Plam trees from the Urban series 3, and Hamm and Woody from the Toy Story series. Plus I just bought 4 FOUR more of the Toy Story ones on the Disneystore.

    Anyhow, I want the 9' Animal one that's suppose to come out soon. Gonzo is also a 9' with a 3' Camilla, all of these are really awesome.

    I just got a penguin and Zoot. I really like the addition of the removable hat.

    I have seen a couple of factory errors, which has assembled a Piggy head on a Janice body with Floyd arms! Makes you wonder how it will effect the numbers of the other characters, when parts of 3 characters have been used for one.There will be Piggy bodies left over with no heads, Janice heads with no bodies and Floyd figures with no arms!

    That's funny! I haven't seen one like that, only errors in the paint and in other series. Like my Buzz Lightyear from the Toy Story series has his control pad not exactly on his chest. I think that you can snap out the pieces though, so you can probably fix it. Plus, I would think that if you buy it in the Disney store & open it up right there and an associate sees it like that, they'll probably do something about it.

    I ADORE these! I would buy these in a heart-beat if they were to be produced. That Uncle Deadly is fantastic and I would go crazy to own one! GREAT job! If you'd ever like to have your fan art spotlighted on The Muppet Mindset, drop me a PM or an email at ryguy102390@gmail.com and I'd love, love to feature you!

    Maybe, but it's sort of a rule with Vinylmation that no returns or refunds can be made.

    I also really like these too, but not to be a downer or nothing, but I don't see another Muppet series for vinylmation. Plus I think the Jim Henson company still owns the rights to Jim's likeness so if another series did come out I doubt it would include the Jim Henson Muppet. But I'm just being nitpicking, I guess. Still great work mbaboon.

    Thanks. I actually considered putting a Kermit puppet on Jim's right hand since the Vinylmation hand has a bit of a curve, but I wasn't sure on who would own the rights to Jim's image. I figured it would be more likely that Disney would be able to use the Jim Henson Muppet Country Trio figure than Jim Henson's actual likeness. Agreed that the chances of another Muppet Vinylmation series would be slim - that's why I took matters into my own hands.

    Actually, I would be surprised if there wasn't a third Muppets Vinylmation series.

    I agree with you. I have a feeling that after the movie in November, Disney will start making the Muppets more mainstream and expose people to the more unknown characters.

    Your designs are better than most of the real ones! You should buy some of the vinylmation create your owns and actually make them!

    Thanks so much. I may just do that, especially since - even outside of my designs - I've got some gaping holes in the 3" set (no Gonzo, Sam or Animal even available).

    My biggest want for series 3 is a Jim Muppet 9" with a 3" Kermit.

    I made myself a 3" Gonzo. I posted him over in the action figure forum. It's really addicting. I've been making them non stop ever since :D
