Muppets Promotion at UK EMPIRE Cinema, Leicester Square

    Not sure if this has been posted here yet, I had a quick browse but didn't see any mentions of it.

    But currently in the UK's EMPIRE Cinema in London's Leicester Square as part of their Kids meal deal (ha, it's definitely not gonna be just the kids queuing up) they're giving away a Muppets Movie cup with a character Topper, yaaay! :)

    Now I'm such a big fan I went in with a friend to buy some popcorn, even though I wasn't going to see a film! I couldn't resist, does that surprise anyone on here, am I on my own there ? Got a feeling i'm not! (I would've seen Arthur Christmas but they weren't showing it) But anyway, the manager let us sneak through to the food stand, and the guy behind the counter even through in an extra Animal topper to go with my Piggy and Kermit :)

    I'm pretty sure they have a Gonzo and Fozzie as well, but I didn't see those.

    And just to show how sad I am...ahem...I mean enthusiastic....here's a few pics :)

    Amazing. Is this unique to empire cinemas? My only local is an odeon. If anyone is in London and able to get these for me I would be grateful. I would of course pay and the postage costs too.

    Your not alone uk muppet fan!!

    How come it seems like the uk gets all the awesome muppets stuff when compared to the us? For instance, the primark Christmas wrapping paper, the disneystore puzzle and mugs and Kermit and animal a5 notebooks, and now this?!?!?

    Are they EMPIRE Cinema exclusives? Can you get them at ODEON Cinemas?

    Not available at Odeon Cinemas , only Empire as far as i'm aware.

    Here's their website with the list of cinemas around the UK


    I went back to Leicester Square to pick up a few more, and they were nearly out, but they did have a Fozzie, so I've added him to the collection, and as far as I know, that completes the set, so just 4 - Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie & Animal, although I did hear mention of a 'blue one' presumably Gonzo , but I haven't seen that myself.

    I'll post a piccie of Fozzie and the whole set when I get a minute.

    Well maybe if we organise a meet up we can all buy our own. They may have replenished stock for when the film opens!!

    Here's a couple more, not the best pics, just a couple of quickies taken on the iphone, so the flash doesn't really do them justice. Oh by the way, I forgot to mention, they're Bobbleheads, although that might've been fairly obvious looking at them :)

    The original Muppet Show was produced in England, so it makes sense for them to get all the good stuff. :)

    I'd gladly pay for a set of these too, if someone in the UK would be willing to pick them up for me! Happy to pay shipping and even something extra for the trouble! Please let me know if anyone can help!!

    These are so cool looking, boy am I jealous! :D I really love that Fozzie, and especially Kermit are closed-mouth sculpts - we NEVER see that! Well, Palisades' Tux Fozzie is like that, but we never got a Kermit with that signature look (I'm still tossing around the idea of getting another basic Kermit and boiling his head enough to get his mouth closed, ha). Plus, Piggy looks GREAT! If I ever get a set of these, I might add more eyelashes, but she's looking pretty pig-tastic if I may say so myself. :)

    Rock on UK Muppets Stuff!! ;)
