    Hey everyone. I wanted to make aware that renouned doll maker, Robert Tonner, has a collection of Miss Piggy dolls for his 2009 doll releases. If you wqant to check the pictures out, go to:

    www.roberttonner.com

    Then to the 2009 Collection. Scoll down and you will find MISS PIGGY in caps letters. She looks great and perfect. Can't wait till this are for sale.

    More Piggy Stuff....this is a really great thing. YAY!

    Great sculpt!

    I find this sort of collectible confusing due to the whole wig/accessory/costume separation. It appears that the pig herself is available in a two-piece swimsuit, shoes and "wheat-color" (ash blonde) wig for $99 and then clothes could be purchased separately if needed.

    This is not particularly my type of item; even so I’d only get it if there were a classic purple Miss Piggy and/or a good recreation of an actual Muppet moment. Still, My Fair Piggy looks really nice. They’ve tone a good job with her and this is the type of Piggy product that sells. Disney knows what they’re doing here with this license. It’s great to see some high quality stuff. The Muppets and the Pig deserve it.

    There's an interesting disclaimer at the bottom of the page. I wish Master Replicas had used the same kind of language.

    :p

    Yes, I absolutely love the sculpt. And I agree with Jaime, Disney DOES know what they are doing, I hope other companies can see this as well. Yay for Piggy and the muppets!

    Hmm...I could never afford to collect those type of dolls, but they are nice :). I wonder what Kermit would look like in that style :)

    I agree that this is an exciting product and nice to see high end items of Piggy coming out again. I do hope that the economy will allow good sales. I sent the company a comment through their site. I asked that they consider making wardrobe that pays tribute to some of her signature moments in film and tv. Great Muppet Caper is a good source. I would love to see the swimming suit and other outfits from that film. Perhaps, the doll not pictured features the very suit. My Fair Pig is my favorite too and reminds me of the Enesco series featuring her as historical women like Cleopigtra.

    Perhaps they will consider doing a drawing through Muppet Central to promote their product. They did so with some dolls through other fan based site. This company tries very had to give collectors what they want and are often at the conventions and shows. :)

    Very True, Chad Kermit. Robert Tonner (a representative for his company, not Robert himself) will be at the NYC Comic Con and I am hoping he will show off Piggy there, since I'll be going this year. I know his main focus at comic cons are his DC line and Harry Potter, but I cross my fingers to see Piggy Too. :mad:

    I can understand what you mean about the fashions, but thats the way Tonner does all of his collections, not just piggy. It's a tonner thing.

    Hey, ryan19. If you go to robert tonners acctual doll site : www.roberttonner.com, on the left top side you will see options. There should be one that says "Where to buy". If you click on that, a list pops up with store all around the US and even outside. You can also e-mail the tonner doll company if you have any questions about shipping to you. The other site for him is www.tonnerdirect.com. I don't believe Piggy is listed on that one yet. I hope this helps.

    Can't wait to get my Piggy!

    No Problem, ryan19. I hope it works out for you.

    Hey doug_buchanan, did they happen to have the miss piggy in the swimsuit. I haven't seena picture available for that one.

    I'm just excited that Muppets are making a comeback with more higher end retail items than the normal plush. YAY!:o

    Wait a minute... The Company is behind this? I wouldn't buy these things... they might use the money they get to fund their insidious plans.... (a little something for Heroes fans)

    DOLL CANNOT STAND ALONE! DOLL CANNOT HOLD BALLOONS AS SHOWN! :zany:

    Here's my quick and crude comp of a Miss Piggy representation fans would likely prefer. I'm all for funky Piggys as long as we get the classic one too. Right now is the time for the Muppets to get back to their roots.

    Very nice mock-up from The Muppet Show era Jamie. Something exactly from The Great Muppet Caper would be the ultimate as that's when Piggy looked the best.

    I really like the Franklin Mint Miss Piggy that came out in 2000 though. It will be interesting to see if the final product of any of these can outdue that.
