I would agree that the accessories, much as I enjoyed most of them, might have been a bit much. They put LOTS of fan-pleasing effort into accessories, and it's debatable whether that was the best use of their resources. However: I don't understand what more anyone could have wanted in the likenesses Palisades gave the Muppets. The original Piggy and Gonzo were off, maybe, but after series 2 the figures looked about as close as plastically possible to the real thing. (Which is also when the accessories got better.) And I totally disagree with the notion that likeness makes up for lousy articulation, which is how I interpret the post quoted above. I admit to letting Neca get away with bad articulation in their Jareth figure, but that's partly because I expected so little from the start, given the way the high-end figure industry works these days. But there are lots of people out here, like me, who can't stand a lot of what's on the market precisely because manufacturers focus on likeness and sculpt at the expense of moving parts. You've got to have both to make a great figure. Jareth aside, I don't want really tall PVCs, no matter how good they look.
