Official Star Wars Muppet Figures Coming

    Very Cool

    I hope this will begin a trend of themed Muppet figure packs (if the sculpts turn out nice). I think the Palisades line would have been both popular and profitable (the production expense was quite high) if all attention had been focussed on likeness rather than accessories and articulation. Look at the amazing stuff McFarlane is doing with Hanna Barbara and the Simpsons. I feel that Palisades fueled the interest in such product, but McF seems to have found the balance. Likeness is paramount.

    Palisades figures to me were wayyyy too big. I had to sell most of mine.

    Hey it was great what we got out of Palisades for 3 years of Muppet figures(and 1 fraggle and a bunch of sesame that never came out)

    but just IMAGINE Muppet figures in this old school scale, not only would they not take up much room, they'd be much cheaper and they'd be able to make countless ones.

    Theres literally thousands of star wars figures of every character ever, ever...imagine if we had a "star wars universe" scope of Muppet characters. Ive been dreaming of this my whole life

    That's so cool, but I wonder if they'll do ones for R2 and Han

    Anybody have a narrower release date of "later in 2007"?

    It's too bad that Disney doesn't own the rights to Oscar the Grouch, because then Oscar could be in a trash can that resembles R2.

    But maybe Pepe can play R2D2, and Link Hogthrob can play Han Solo.

    This is probably an obviouse choice seeing as how :eek: will be C3PO but I think :confused: would make a great R2D2

    Um... Methinks the names of the Muppets you chose were missing in that last post KingPrawn. You might want to edit it so others aren't confused like I am.

    He's using two (that's TWO!) of the Muppet smilies Count. Beaker & Bunsen (in that order, I always say Bunsen & Beaker).

    What does your text software say for smilies like that? "Eek!" and "confused"? That's what a little text block shows when I hover my mouse over the smilies.

    Anyhoo, I think that would make sense too, but I always think of that Muppet Babies episode where Skeeter was 3-P0 and Beaker was R2.

    I don't really care, I just hope these are out by the time Wifey & I go to Disneyland in August!

    Well... Usually when a person uses a Muppet smiley, all I get is the emotion said smiley is meant to represent.
    For example: Beaker = Eek! what I would normally read is just the "Eek!" preceeded by a "Graphic" notice.
    The problem is, in King Prawn's post there's not even any text of the emotions the smileys represent to read.

    BTW: In the Muppet Babies version of Star Wars, the cast included:
    Kermit Skyhopper (Luke Skywalker).
    Princess Piggy (Princess Leia).
    Fozbacca the Wookie (Chewbacca).
    Gon Zolo (Han Solo).
    Obi Rowlf Kenobi (Obi Wonkenobi).
    Animal Vader (Dirth Vader).
    And Skeeter was indeed Skeet-3PO (C-3PO), but Scooter played Scoot2-D2 (R2-D2), not Beaker.
    Hope this helps.

    I think that it is great that there will be more Muppets merchandise at Disney. I was beginning to feel a bit afraid for them.

    Actually, these got me thinking. I know back in the day they did an entire Muppet episode with Luke Skywalker on the original Muppet show, but what if they actually redid the entire Star Wars MOVIE Muppet style? :D

    As a Muppet Geek and a SW Geek, all I can say is.... Palisades! Nooooo!
    Sure, the Palisades figs were BIG, but with how cool they made them, it was worth it! I think we've pretty much stopped buying toys in our house since Palisades went away...

    Now, if these figures were in scale with standard SW Hasbro figures, that'd be kind of neat, but then Rizzo would be TINY!

    Aaah, gotcha.
    Ooop! Ha ha, I knew that! Musta had Beaker on the brain or something. That was one of my favorite episodes! I really loved how Scooter had to really concentrate HARD to get out those bleeps and blips. His face was all scrunchy, awesome!

    Cheers!

    My two favorite things coming together once again. My favorite Muppet show is the one Mark Hammill hosted. They should have Yoda dress up as a Muppet. I will be 20th in line for these.
