MuppetCentral becoming a partner with Palisades!

Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by Lorde Pompeo, Aug 3, 2002.

    I was thinking...

    Since Christmas is almost here and people will start being good to eachother and all I had an idea...

    To show that the heads behind Palisades have a nice heart too, why doesn't Palisades offer some figures, playsets and exclusives to MuppetCentral and then MuppetCentral could create a contest (Drawing Contest or Best Phrase or something) to people that live in countries where the Figures are not going to be released like... Spain... Angola... Portugal perhaps... And the prizes would be the Playsets, the Figures and the Exclusives to the ten best whatevers... Hein? Nice idea...

    It would be a nice gesture from Palisades AND MuppetCentral...

    What do you think? Shouldn't something like this be done right away?

    Thank you!

    Shame on you!

    You awfull people... How can you not support such a noble cause?

    You cold hearted monsters... Go... Go... Go put the lime in the coconut!

    And don't call me in the morning!

    Of course it would have nothing to do with you being one of the people in those far away countries would it ? LOL !!!!

    There has been some kind of contest on the forum to win something before, and Smig also won figures for suggesting the door scooter was originally going to come with.

    How can you say such a thing??? I'm shocked!

    I wasn't thinking about myself... I was thinking about all the Muppet fans from my country...

    That means that if I make a sugestion I can win Figures? That's so cool! For each sugestion that Ken apreciates I win a Figure! How about that?

    1 - Robin should come with Sweetums in the Backstage Playset.

    2 - The Kitchen Playset should come with three or four regular rats that we could put inside the round thing which you fill with water to boil (I don't know the name).

    3 - Gonzo with a purple suit should come with a trumpet and a rubber tire.

    4 - Janice should come with a little Rockin' Robin Bird and that circular instrument with little bells that we pat to make "tching tching" (I don't know the name).

    5 - The Newsman should come with a sheep and a Venus Statue.

    6 - In the series concerning Veteranarian's Hospital, a Gorila should come out as a Figure with coconuts and a palm tree or a Teleport Machine to add to the Muppet Labs Playset (then we could have an Exclusive Chinese Gorila Dancing Ballet) so that there could be a pacient to put on the Veteranarian's Hospital Metal Bed... Also this way Beaker won't be alone anymore...

    7 - Beauregard should come with a little fridge so that we could put the Rats that came with the Kitchen Playset inside it.

    8 - Scooter as a Guy Who Sells Stuff with Organic Popcorn and little table could come out as an exclusive.

    9 - Nurse Piggy should come with Foo Foo (what do we need a Veteranarian's Hospital if we have no aditional animals?).

    10 - Since Fozzie needs a little hammer to smack Kermit on the neck, let it come as a prop with the Backstage Playset.

    So Luke, do you think Ken will like any of these? I have more but I will post them later... Anyway... I still like the contest idea...

    It's a tamborine. :)

    It's not a you-win-if-Ken-uses-your-idea thing. It's more of a you-win-if-you-can-guess-what-Ken-has-planed-but-hasn't-told-us-yet thing. Even I don't know what the heck I just said.

    In Portuguese it is called "pandeireta" (pan-day-re-ta)...

    We have a fish called "Tamboril" however, which is used to make a specialty called "Arroz de Tamboril" (Tamboril's Rice) which is marvellous!

    You didn't give your opinion on my sugestions JaMoMan... :(

    11 - Lew Zealand should come with a Tamboril in honour of Portuguese Fans.

    I have a doubt - the food coming out with the Kitchen Playset is Muppet Food or regular food?

    Oh... Now you tell me...

    Since I joined MuppetCentral I have felt great happiness followed by great sadness several times... This is killing my nerves...

    I had stoped consuming chocolate but thanks to this diabolic forum I am an adict again... And my sister was born last sunday so I'm getting that post-deliever depression thing...

    Must... Fight... Depression... Givemechocolate... Titwillow... Givememuppets...

    It has been repprted Robin and Sweetums are already slated together in the theater set. The kitchen set is already stocked so nothing more can really be added. They went a tad bit past their budget it seems. Check it out on their site if you haven't seen it yet! It is coming with Lobster Bandits! Beauregard is likely coming with his mop and bucket but a fridge sounds cool too. Okay bad joke. :) Fridge...cool...get it?

    You've got post delivery depression because your SISTER was born last Saturday ? Wow - must have been some birth ! ;-)

    Some nice ideas there. From what i gather, Ken rewards ideas that actually get used (or very close to used) in the final product but it's at his discretion so not something to be automatically expected. I think the idea of some kind of christmas competition is cool but it would have to be open to everyone and it wouldn't suprise me if something like this happened either here or via the Palisades website when it gets to that time. I think they are also setting up a specific email address for people to send ideas and suggestions to so that they don't have to search all over the forum and can just go through them at their own end.

    I'm not REALLY expecting to recieve Figures just because I'm doing what I think is an obligation that I have as a Muppet Fan! I have the duty to help the Muppets in any way I can without expecting to be rewarded! The simple fact that I have the honour to be a Muppet Fan is enough!

    However, if there is going to be a contest then I MUST win it, because there is no other way for me to have the Figures except for the good hearts of some people (Uncleduke!) and some stuff like contests...

    Feel my pain... and stay out of my way! :D

    Anyway... Ken! Please! Tell me if you like my ideas... It will be good to cure my depression... :p

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately (or fortunately for the person in question) our good friend Kenneth has gone off on a dirty weekend to San Diego to meet brazenly loose woman and drink copious amounts of beer - he'll be back once his desire has been quenched, or Tuesday, whichevers earliest ! ;-)

    Uh, Luke.....wasn't that your weekend? Oh wait.....it was......IN YOUR DREAMS!!!!!! LOL!

    What are the other rats suppose to come with then? Backstage Playset? I'm glad you liked the Fridge idea... I hope that Ken likes it too (aswell as the other 9 ideas I posted)...

    KEN! Tell me what you think! GIVE A MEANING TO MY MISERABLE LIFE!

    Thank you...

    The other rats could come with kitchen supplies - not just a fridge. We know that they know their way around the kitchen from The Muppets Take Manhattan! ;)

    man, have you ever considered medication? or maybe a girlfriend/boyfriend (hey, to each their own)? because you're just a bit high-strung...
  18. Lorde Pompeo

    Lorde Pompeo Well-Known Member

    What does high-strung mean?

    I hope you're not saying that I plant cannabis on my backyard!
  19. grail

    grail Well-Known Member

    well, no...but the fact that you leapt to that conclusion is interesting
  20. Lorde Pompeo

    Lorde Pompeo Well-Known Member

    Yeah! Yeah!

    You must all think it is cute to make fun of the stupid foreigner!

    You will see... Just wait and you will see...

    When you start to see pidgeons, remember me... and RUN! RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN BECAUSE MY PIDGEONS ARE NOT NICE ANIMALS! Ah!

    (Of course I'm evil... I'm a "Lorde"! I have to be evil...)

    Tune in next week when you will hear Grail say:

    "Doctor... I see pidgeons everywhere! Take them away from me! THEY ARE ALL OVER ME! ARGH! ARGH! Why did I have to tell the world that the Lorde of the Pidgeons plants cannabis in his backyard? I sure am glad that I didn't mention the hidden bottles of Vodka and the flag of the Comunist Party..."
