    I was able to snatch up a set of 12 today, including the chaser, for about $170. I am so excited!!!

    I don't know how you managed to pull off that one. :smirk: And you got the Walter! I really need to find me one of those!
    Are there a limited amount of chasers out there?

    There is one per box, while the others have 2 per box. I was lucky enough to get a Waldo last year! Blind Boxed! :)

    I meant how many chasers were put into production? What are the chances of finding a chaser in your box? Are there only 100 chasers out there?

    Well, there is one chaser per case of 24 vinylmation. There are two sets of the known (common) vinylmation, plus one extra figure. So, there may be two sets of the 11 non-chasers and an extra Kermit vinylmation (just an example). So, your odds are 1 in 24. Not bad, really.

    (and, uh, in case anyone was wondering how I knew that, I got a Walter chaser, too.)

    Bah, these people don't know what they're talking about...

    http://vinylmationkingdom.com/2013/07/28/hits-and-misses-muppets-3/

    They think that Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Sam, Animal, and Kermit are the winners (They are great vinyls, but we've seen them all before), and think that Beau, Crazy Harry, and the Newsman are bad because they are "less well known". :p

    I personally think the vinylmations keep getting better and better for us true muppet fans, because the artists are slowly running out of MAIN characters, and giving us more obscure characters!!!

    yeah
    yeah i agree if we can get mahna mahna and uncle deadly i think if they make a series 4 we can get a johnny fiama sal clifford bobo 80's robot miss poogy Constantine thog lips walter in his blue suit robin and maybe dr teeth with a hat and a Jim Henson chaser....

    theres 13 right there there is enough for another set.

    on a different note i wonder what 9" figures we will be getting this series

    I know! But, the main thing that gets me is that, if avid Vinylmation collectors (who, might I add, are quite obsessed with even the worst of series), don't react well to more obscure Muppets as Vinylmation, then Disney will become cautious to make more merchandise of said obscure characters (because, god forbid, Disney loses money). Don't get me wrong, the day we get a series even somewhat similar to this one, will be the day I buy case:

    Got my :fanatic: in the mail today...HE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! You really can't appreciate the detail on his watch until you see it in person (it is so tiny). WAY worth the $40. Now I just have to wait for the arrival of my other 11 figures!

    Once again, I'm loving the Merlidop and Baby Koozebanian in Kermits' ears, even if only 10% of the people buying these will know who they are.

    And I'm not even going to comment on how frustrated I am that Animal gets the extra figure per case. Because, we ALL LOVE Animal, right? Heh, NOPE.
