Discussion in 'Muppet Merchandise' started by Monopoly Guy, Sep 2, 2003.
I think it was already confirmed that there is no penguin.
I'm wrong, which is consistent for me.
There was NO information by Monopoly Guy that stated that a Penguin would not be a part of the puzzle.
I think there was another thread on this. Not sure if I remember either.
There was...long, long ago. There was a thread about this, but it's lost now in the great halls of MC Forums.
There was a thread for this. I posted it at the beginning of this thread, but I shall post again for those who missed it.
In that case, we need to wait for Monopoly Guy to get back. So, is there a Penguin? Oh, please be a penguin. What is the Muppets without Penguins?
matleo, I didn't see that your list had only 32 Muppets. Of the ones you listed there, 2 were incorrect, so out of 33 you had 30 correct. (I realize that by saying this I'm confirming Sweetums as a character not depicted in the puzzle. Truth is, he was on my list of Muppets to include from the start but it all came down to the problem of his size. In keeping all the Muppets in scale with one another, he was HUGE and took up about 1/4th of the entire puzzle image with just his head. I played around for a while trying to have him peeking up from the background, but as the "background" of the image got increasingly filled with other Muppets, all that was really left as visible was one of his eyes. All in all, I prefered having 33 Muppets in the puzzle sans Sweetums instead of having around 25 including him.)
Beauregard, of the Muppets you named, 5 are not in the puzzle. But I will confirm that one of the 33 characters is indeed a Muppet penguin, so there's no need to worry.
I believe the price of the puzzle will be $11.95 and it comes in a cool collectible tin box. Look for images of the box and the puzzle image sometime next week here on MuppetCentral.
Okay, I'll take another stab at this. I know a couple may be wrong, but is this anywhere close? I put them in a descending order of likelyhood. Not sure about the last few. By the way, would you count Camilla as a full Muppet slot? If so she could easily bump somebody.

24 Marvin Suggs
30 Uncle Deadly
ok, by process of elimination the 5 NOT in Kevin's first list are Sweetums, Thog, Bobo, Marvin Suggs, and Lips. And the 5 I think are werong on Beauregard's list are Van Neuter, Bobo (again), Lips (again) Uncle Deadly and Lew's fish I can't fully explain how I came to this, ut I can say it gave me a huge headache and I'm afraid if I try to explain it it will only make me doubt myself.
so...one more college try.
10) Dr Teeth
16) Crazy Harry
18) Sam Eagle
21) Lew Zealand
From my list I think I had Marvin, JP and obviously Sweetums wrong. one of those hads been replaced by the now confirmed penguin, the other by Crazy Harry who I've omitted up until now due to him ont being one of the 5 I listed at the top. JP is theonly other on on my list I would have doubted beign the obscure, so I'm now in the Angus camp.
That's all for now. Boy, am I persistent or what?
I thought he said there was no penguin or Sweetums.
Penguin is in.
Sweetums is out.
Edit: oh I see what you mean, somehow Sweetums ended up on my list again. D'oh. that should be....

Sorry, of all the characters to miss too! Sheesh!
p.p.s--- psssssst...hey, jamie (or any other moderator who might be reading), if you're reading this and you feel like being nice, you wanna do me a favor and edit that so it's fixed? if not that's ok too.
It is done. I like that list. I think yours is probably the closest if not spot on! Thanks for the heads up about the penguin. Didn't remember reading that.
My thoughts is that these characters will be in arches. Has that been confirmed?
thanks Jamie, you rock!!!
Yeah, I think this list is pretty dang close too. I spent a lot of time last night deducing a lot. and this list conforms to a lot of what has been said so far.
As for the arches, a while back monopoly guy said that he had used the imge from the middle of the Monopoly game as a spring board and then built around it. he also mentioned trying to arrgane it to 'fit Sweetums" in so I don't think there will be arches.
I'm really eager to see what image of Floyd he used. MG already said that it wouldn't be that lousy one that they use for everything else (like the Palisades boxes and muppets.com. ans he said thew Zoot pic is the same one off the game board in the EM spacve and not the lousy Zoot image that they use on everything else (like the Palisades boxes and muppets.com)
$11.50 sounds like agood price for a 550 piece puzzle. MG, any idea who will be carrying it?
Nice. My wife LOVES doing puzzles. I HATE them. Maybe this will bring us back together.
My son likes eating the pieces. He'll go to bed. Permanently.
Sounds good--I was just looking at some of those big puzzles at Gamekeeper or someplace, and they were all over 20.00, so if this comes in at 12 bucks, I'll be VERY happy.
I'll get it either way.
Go ahead and gouge me.
I hope it has classic Kermit, Janice, and Piggy, and not the newer ones.
I don't know about Janice, but the images of kermit and Piggy will be the same one used in the center of the Monopoly board. Which is to say the same image used for a lot of the 25th anniv. stuff. Bascially this one......
...but without the background and signatures of course. I don't think Piggy looks too bad there, but my god that Kermit poser does look awful. Bunsen doesn't look too healthy either. oh well. When oh when will Henson fix that poser?
I'm not wild about many of those puppets. Sam looks really strange and Kermit is terrible. However, I do like Piggy better than many of the modern ones being used. No floating heads! In all it will be a good composition. I look at it as getting the characters' "wrong side". Noticable, but not a huge deal to anyone but the subject. LOL!
I have that picture signed by the Chef. But I agree, K. looks bad, bad, bad. Pig. is ok, Gonzo is good, but what the heck is wrong with Fozzie's head?
Separate names with a comma.
