    You know what's funny? well actualy it's not funny at all but "I think" Sababa has been making some small run muppet dolls for about a year now. anyone remeber that animal pulsh in a tux? or a VERY ugly Fozzie Christmas doll? as well as I have seen valentine Kermit dolls (at flea markets or e-bay) with the same kinda Sababa tag, I think that Kermit in the carrot plush is part of this too. I could be wrong but i remember that simaler looking tag.

    Those are the Nanco plushes they have the same kind of tag as Sababa plushes. I have alot of the Nanco ones that I have won out of those claw machines.

    oh yeah? make sence. They must have changed the old tag with the top of Kermits face to this new Muppet show style one.

    Thanks for that info!

    The 18 inch sababa plushes are pretty fantastic, even if they are just leftover stock from the previous company. Gonzo especially is great looking, i think. Not having the Igel/Catric plushes, i plan to get all 7 sababa. Has anyone seen either Miss Piggy or Bunsen in Hot Topic, Spencer's or any other stores? :mad: :confused: Perhaps those two can only be ordered off of wickedcoolstuff.com...

    Did anyone notice where Floyd's left hand is in the photo of the Electric Mayhem set? :flirt:

    I picked up the Beaker & Rizzo plushes at Media Play, along with the Muppets Monopoly, a Muppet Show lunch box, and some playing cards last week. Both Beaker & Rizzo are fantastic! They also had Bunsen & Gonzo, who I thought were good, but not great.

    I'm still waiting to pick up that Electric Mayhem set though!

    Am I the only one who isn't ungreatful that we are seeing Dr. Teeth et al in plush form for the first time ever?

    I mean, we've seen mostly Kermit/Piggy/Animal/Gonzo and sometimes Fozzie for years, now it's time for Bunsen, Beaker, The rest of the Mayhem, Rizzo, Pepe, Chef and the rest to have their turn.

    When I saw the Mayhem pic, style be ^%$#ed, I was crying because I had no money. I simply MUST have them!

    Out of the larger ones, we do need to see Dr. Teeth, Sam, Rowlf (hopefully as Dr. Bob), Chef, and Pepe among others.

    But My concern is I like the Shape of the Naanco Bunsen's head better than the Sabba. Saw a whole bunch of them in a crane machine... wish I could've smashed it open and just payed for the machine (they had ALF, Elmo, Big Bird and Ernie too!)

    But no matter how weird the mayhem may look, it's a better sight than those &^%$ Nanco Piggy's!

    Yup. And Fraggle plushes are coming to Hot Topic next year. :excited:

    It's going to get so crowded at my place. :eek:

    Just picked up the Mayhem set at a Hot Topic in Jacksonville (when they see a 40-year-old in business attire at the checkout, they have to feel they're losing their edge). They're a little smaller and more claw-machine than I imagined (though the Nanco Fozzie I won a few weeks ago is one of the best I've seen...detailed open mouth and everything!), but they're still great. I'm not sorry they're missing their instruments, which would likely be hardened felt that would be crinkled and folded in transit.

    The three sets they had were very different from each other; there was a lot of variation in the distance between Janice's mouth and eye decals, for example. I think that's why so many people are finding them "ugly"...hold out for a good set!

    The set I settled on was pretty easy to pick...unlike the others, Dr. Teeth's nose stuck straight out, and Janice's eyes and mouth matched well. The only problem was that one of Floyd's eyes was squished a bit, but I've brought in the paper-clip brigade to straighten them out for a few days!

    A great set...but we need a matching Animal!

    Augh, you got the plush Mayhem? Luckyyyyy! Did they recently come to Hot Topic or something? Cause everytime I go to the mall, I check Hot Topic, and they're never there. Or did they only came to certain Hot Topics, for some weird reason, or maybe I can be order 'em online... *rubs hands together deviously*

    Did this post even have a point? Meh...

    I got mine yesterday at SunCoast. They also have the new tv trays and the other new sababa plush.

    ooh... maybe I can get my mom or brother to take me to Suncoast. I rully need to learn how to drive.
  15. HerryGrail

    HerryGrail Active Member

    I've been checking...they just got to our Hot Topic, and the rest of the new merchandise has come to Suncoast (fortunately both are right across from each other). In fact, most everything seems to have just hit, including the new Simpsons stuff as well. So check (or call) as much as you can, especially this weekend!

    I'm SHOCKED that Newburry Comics doesn't have them yet, aren't you?

    Media play!!!!! yaaaaa! Media Play had the EM set! the Kermit and Piggy set! the Toga Animal and bule hooded Fozzie set! all four car toppers and the Muppet tin tray plus alot of other stuff they have had for a while now!

    I got the EM, cartoppers and tin tray! what a Muppet mother load! Hopefuly they will get the Statler and Waldorf set too!

    oh and it's better to buy the EM at Media Play as it's cheeper there as I also saw it at Hot Topic too, but it cost more just like the other sabba plush.

    here's another tip, buy John Denver and the Muppets RMH DVD at Media play as it's the cheepest price place I saw it, and I got mine at Walmart :mad:

    I saw them at Media Play today too--And I like them a lot.

    I *AM* bugged that they went through all the trouble of making Zoot, Janice, Floyd, and Dr. Teeth, but didn't include ANIMAL. The most marketed of EM members, and they didn't just toss him in? AARRGH!!!

    Because of that little oversight, I'm passing on the EM plushes.

    But that Toga Animal is sah-wheet. I'll be buying him fer sure.

    And Hoodie Fozzie, by default.

    The other Sababas...Stat/Wald look too pimpy, and Piggy looks too hoochie...but I like the (incomplete) Mayhem and Toga Animal.

    Car toppers--cute, but too cartoony.

    Haven't seen the tin goods yet.

    The Palisades PVCs were there too. BIG. SOOOO BIG.

    There are so many animal beans floating around from various companies that would easily fit into the set. That's what I'm going to do. :halo:

    Haven't received the minis yet, but I am excited.

    For my sister's b-day today, my parents get me a little something too and vice versa on my b-day, and they got me the Electric Mayhem set! I'm sooooo happy, they're sooo cool! :D :sing: :flirt: :cool:

    Actually, in a way I'm kind of glad that Animal didn't come with the set, 'cause that means that it's just the more obscure characters from EM, although it woulda been nice if they had the complete band too :halo:
