    Raech had posted this in the "Ask Ken" discussion, but I wanted to also put it here so that it wasn't missed since it's some pretty big news and changes to the Muppet Show figures line.

    Figure Changes--


    I think I missed it somewhere: What the heck happened to the Beaker?


    Speaking of "figure changes," I need to go on a diet!

    The machine that makes the figures smooshed the test shot (I think that is what it is called). Anyway the one they make the figures from got muched.

    A new one had to be made very quickly. His mouth with be in a partially open state. Instead of the opening closing mouth in the last one. It is going to be a week late now (shipping 3 weeks after the figures - instead of 2). They could not put it off longer to get a moving mouth version again, cos stores could cancel their orders.

    There are no pictures of the new Beaker yet, but stay posted to the Ask Ken from Palisades thread.

    Re: Beaker

    Maybe if they did a Beaker repaint in his white lab coat they could get the time to do an opening closing mouth.

    Too bad about the original. He was perfect.

    Yea I agree. BTW Ken had emailed me, he had the idea to do a Blown up Beaker (long b4 it was suggested on the old board). He wanted it to have the following accessories: a lampshade for over his head, a mini (PVC) Beaker (for when he is shrunk), and a flattened Beaker packaged in. The Blown up Beaker itself should have a moving mouth. No clue when it would be released, but it would be a regular carded figure.
