    i'll respond to myself

    here are my opinions.

    my five favoites are Lips, Beauregard, Dr. Phil Van Neuter, Clifford, and lew Zeland. my top five least favorites are Miss Piggy, Usher Scooter, Vacation Fozzie, Floyd Pepper, and Pops.

    The Swedish Chef, Link Hogthrob and dr. Strangepork are better than I expected. nobody is worse than I expected.

    The only mega I own is mega Animal.

    OK, I'll do this one, too. I love surveys! :)

    1. Who are your top five favorite/ least favorite figures?

    Top five would have to be Janice, Sam the Eagle, Johnny Fiama, Sweetums and Swedish Chef (though not necessarily in that order). Five least favorite would be S1 Piggy, Steppin' Out Fozzie, Rowlf (with the playset), Beauregard and Scooter (S3).

    2. were any figures better/ worse than you expected?

    Yep. Usher Scooter was way, way, way better than I expected; the other Scooter and Statler were a bit worse than I expected.

    3. which mega was your favorite/ least favorite?

    I named Sweetums as a fave figure, so he's my favorite mega. My least favorite would be Animal.

    4. what exclusives were your favorite/ least favorite?

    I don't have many exclusives. So I'll say my faves were Tux Gonzo and Jim Henson, as they're the only two I own.

    5. what minis are your favorite/ least favorite?

    Never collected minis, but from pictures, I'd say that the entire MCC run of minis are my favorites and my least favorites are Gonzo and Piggy.

    6. what is your favorite/ least favorite playset?

    Favorite would be Pigs in Space. Least favorite is the EM Stage, for the reason that I can't get it. :cry:

    7. what give-away was your favorite/ least favorite?

    Again, never collected giveaways. Again, from pictures I'd say my favorite was Vanishing Cream Beaker, and my least was Invisibility Spray Fozzie.

    8. do you own every Muppets release from palisades?

    Certainly not. I only own one thing from the first 3 series, and that would be Lew Zealand.

    9. do you own every package variations?

    Nope. I do have the chase Janice, though. Coincidentally, that's my only Janice. EDIT: I also own the Shifty-Eyed Sam, which is also my only Sam. :)

    10. what is one muppet production (not in palisades contract) that you would have liked to have been included in the line?

    I'd say Fraggle Rock. I can only imagine how smokin' a Palisades Boober would have been!

    11. what is your favorite/ least favorite repaint?

    Favorite would be my chase Janice. Least favorite would be the hideously ugly Silver Lips.

    12. what are your favorite non-pack-in accessories?

    Assuming you mean non-character accessories, I'd say my top five are Chef's musket; Sam's podium; Janice's guitar; Johnny Fiama's picture of himself; and the Newsman's telephone.

    13. what is your favorite pack-in figure?

    Polly Lobster. He's just amazing.

    14. who are four characters you wish we could have gotten?

    Bobo, Bobo, Bobo and Sal Manila.

    15. of the characters planned for 2005, which one are you most upset over not getting?

    Sal, as I think Bobo was planned for '06.

    16. of the officially unannounced-for-release figures, which one do you wish we could have gotten?

    I'd say Wayne.

    17. if you could change one thing about the line, what would it be?

    I can't choose one, so I'll pick three:
    1) A "Classic Beaker" included somewhere along the line
    2) The red-curtain packaging included with the clamshells
    3) Wider distribution of the minis

    those are exclusives. Give-aways are stuff that were given away by palisades at certain events, usually conventions, and rarely availible for sale from palisades (I think there have beena few contests for members of the collectors club where members could win a chance to buy certain give-aways). some of the give-aways included Holiday Kermit, Holiday Rizzo (which was also an exclusive; there were two different color schemes, and one of them was exclusive, the other give-away), invisible beaker (similar to vanishing cream beaker, except this one was completely clear), white tux rowlf, dream date gonzo, gold tux gonzo, and wedding of the century kermit and piggy.

    ~ Janice
    Least Faves no particular order
    ~ Tux Fozzie

    ~ Lew Zealand
    ~ Dr Phil Van Neuter
    ~ Dr Teeth

    2. were any figures better/ worse than you expected?

    **** yeah... Tux Fozzie blew big time. The pictures on Palisades looked awesome but the eyes really buggered it up for me when I got the figure.
    Better than I expected??? Hmmm I didn't think I'd really like Sam Arrow or Classic Chef, but was pleasantly surprised how much I did like the figures.

    3. which mega was your favorite/ least favorite?

    I don't own any of the 'regular' mega figures, so I'd have to say Sweetums.

    4. what exclusives were your favorite/ least favorite?

    Faves
    ~ Jim Henson
    ~ Rainbow Connection Kermit & Robin (in the mail) :D
    ~ Vanishing Cream Beaker

    5. what minis are your favorite/ least favorite?

    I didn't buy any, but liked the look of the Xmas Carol minis.

    6. what is your favorite/ least favorite playset?

    Fave is a tie between the Kitchen and Electric Mayhem Stage
    Least fave is the Muppet Lab

    8. do you own every Muppets release from palisades?

    Quite possibly, but no not every Muppet Figure.

    9. do you own every package variations?

    Nope... I have the variants for Janice, Floyd, Lips, and Pinstripe Johnny

    10. what is one muppet production (not in palisades contract) that you would have liked to have been included in the line?

    Muppet Christmas Carol figures!!!

    11. what is your favorite/ least favorite repaint?

    Favorite would be Pinstripe Johnny, and least favorite would Silver Shirt Lips.

    12. what are your favorite non-pack-in accessories?

    Faves eh? All of Robins accessories, Rowlf's piano, Statler & Waldorf's chairs, and Adventure Kermits accessories.

    13. what is your favorite pack-in figure?

    Camilla & Bernice

    14. who are four characters you wish we could have gotten?

    Bobo, Sal, Baby Kermit and Baby Piggy

    15. of the characters planned for 2005, which one are you most upset over not getting?

    The Muppet Babies

    16. of the officially unannounced-for-release figures, which one do you wish we could have gotten?

    I'd like to have seen Ma Bear in a Christmas Farmhouse playset.

    17. if you could change one thing about the line, what would it be?

    A LONGER RUN!!! SO MUCH MORE COULD BE MADE!!! WHY OH WHY???

    Even though I'm looking forward to the Sesame Street figures, they will not be the same as my Muppet Figures. I watched a heck of a lot more Muppet Show episodes than I did Sesame Street, and only know the major characters. But I guess I'll have to see once they come out to pass judgement... I waited about a year and a half too late to start collecting Muppet figures when they were cheaper and more available, I don't wanna make history repeat itself.

    package variants

    I just wanted to make sure that you people know that by "package variants" I mean a difference in packaging for the same figure. For example, the swedish kitchen playset and mega beaker were both originally released in packaging that resembled the packaging for the first three series (a red curtain background), but then when target sold Muppet products from palisades, target wanted to sell those two items on the condition that the boxes resemble the newer (sky blue background) packaging so that they would have a consistant look. These items were also sold in other stores in the newer packaging as well.

    Another example would be series 1 kermit the frog. In addition to being reelased as a regular series 1 figure, this exact figure was a give-away at the first convention that the muppets were for sale at (wher the dr. teeth repaint was sold), and this kermit was exactly the same as the released version, but it was packaged in a lunchbox and didn't come with any accessories.
  10. minor muppetz

    minor muppetz Well-Known Member

    Yes, The Muppet Christmas Carol was included. The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet caper, The Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Christmas carol, Muppet Treasure Island, Muppets Tonight, and Muppets From Space were all included in the license.

    1. who are your top five favorite/ least favorite figures?
    Favourites - Animal, Floyd, Janice, Johnny Fiama, Pops
    Least Favourites - Tux Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Lew Zealand, Hogthrob, Strangepork


    2. were any figures better/ worse than you expected?
    S9 Swedish Chef was way better than expected. I just thought they just made it so people who didn't want the whole Kitchen set but just the figure could get something. Now I realize that he is a great figure. Awesome articulation, sculpt, and accessories. Tux Fozzie was worse--leagues worse. His hat wouldn't go on right, the book was too small to read, and the paint was smudged on Fozzie and on the Book...I had high hopes for him, and he was the biggest letdown any toy line did for me. Also, Lips was worse. I was thinking--yes, another addition to the band. Sweet, he's got a trumpet, and Javas...I'm going to love it! However, the paint was wet on Lips, and when I took him out he smudged all over, and there is now a small black thumprint on his belly. It's small, but noticeable. The paint on the Javas was wet as well, and smudged. This was a WHITE SHIRT Lips, too, which was the most disappointing part of it.

    3. which mega was your favorite/ least favorite?
    Animal was pretty rad, never got the others, but they looked great. I don't think I would have disliked any of them...maybe Camilla.

    4. what exclusives were your favorite/ least favorite?
    Tux Gonzo and Bernice, hands down. Great sculpt, paint, articulation, accessories. The only downside was the price, but it was clearly worth the extra. Culinary Catastrophe Swedish Chef was great, too. The lobster banditos were some of the best accessories throughtout the line's run.

    5. what minis are your favorite/ least favorite?
    Doglion and Swedish Chef. I really like the packaging on the individuals.

    6. what is your favorite/ least favorite playset?
    Least favourite?? Don't think that's possible... The Lab set is great (glad I never got that supposed "goo", heh) and Beaker is so awesome. There are so many cool scenes you can create with it, and I'll never get tired of it. The Kitchen is AMAZING, just downright AMAZING. Words can't really describe my love to it. Swinetrek was a nice follow-up, and was astonishing in it's own way, but needed accessories. While all of these sets are sweet, I'd have to say, being the music geek that I am, I'd say my favourite is Animal's drum kit. I love the idea of having that mini band of Muppet figures. The EM stage is killer.

    7. what give-away was your favorite/ least favorite?
    Never got any, wanted Gold Tux Gozo, he looks nifty.

    8. do you own every Muppets release from palisades?
    Heavens no.

    9. do you own every package variations?
    See above.

    10. what is one muppet production (not in palisades contract) that you would have liked to have been included in the line?
    Muppets Cristmas Carol. The minis in 6" scale would have been amazing.

    11. wat is your favorite/ least favorite repaint?
    I personally don't like the idea of variants/repaints, and therefore my answer is "N/A".

    12. what are your favorite non-pack-in accessories?
    Piano and the rest of the instruments.

    13. what is your favorite pack-in figure?
    Camilla.

    14. who are four characters you wish we could have gotten?
    Bean Bunny, Bobo, Dr. Bob, and Sal. Soooooooo cliched.

    15. of the characters planned for 2005, which one are you most upset over not
    getting?

    I'm not upset about anything, Palisades gave us all they could and I could not ask for more.

    16. of the officially unannounced-for-release figures, which one do you wish we could have gotten?
    Vet's Hospital.

    17. if you could change one thing about the line, what would it be?
    Had the whole run with clamshells.

    least favortie accessories

    I can't beleive that I forgot to ask about what your least favorite accessories are. well, if you already took a "survey" you can still say what your least favoite accessories are, and if you haven't you can tell me in the question for favorite accessories.

    My least favorite accessories are the antennaes for mamma, miss piggys dressing room table, and all of pepes accessories (except for his lunch box).

    Docnzhoss Active Member

    My least favorite accessory is probably Link Hogthrob's magazine. It's a photo of the action figure plastered on a piece of plastic.


    Also, I changed my mind about my favorite pack-in figure. Instead of the Muppaphones (with Marvin Suggs) I like the Koozebanians/Murdlidops with Koozebane Kermit.

    I would have concentrated less on making so many variations, (with the exception of PIS, VH & BOP), and made sure that every character was released, then I\d be sitting here looking at Annie Sue Pig!!!! Let's start a petition to have her and Thog made!!!!!

    Alright, I'm bumping this thread, mostly because I have new answers for mine, and I want to know other's opinions.

    1. What are your top five favorite/ least favorite figures?
    S5 Gonzo, S8 Sam Eagle, Uncle Deadly, Clifford, and Penguins

    2. Were any figures better/ worse than you expected?
    Uncle Deadly was much better! As was Crazy Harry, and Dr. Teeth. I'd say that Bunsen, S2 Gonzo, and Marvin Suggs were much worse than expected.

    3. Which mega was your favorite/ least favorite?
    Gonzo is the only one I have, so he's my fave.

    4. What exclusives were your favorite/ least favorite?
    My fave exculsives have to be Jim Henson, Uncle Deadly, and the penguins. My least fave is Super Beaker.

    5. What minis are your favorite/ least favorite?
    All I have is the set with Thog, Sam Eagle, and Mahna Mahna, and I love them, so they're my favorite.

    6. What is your favorite/ least favorite playset?
    My all time favorite is Backstage, and my least is Muppet Labs.

    7. What give-away was your favorite/ least favorite?
    I'd say Holiday Rizzo.

    8. Do you own every Muppets release from palisades?
    No way...

    9. Do you own every package variations?
    No, I'm missing Floyd, Zoot, Rizzo, Janice, Shifty Eyed Sam, Classic Lips, and Silver Lips.

    10. What is one muppet production (not in palisades contract) that you would have liked to have been included in the line?
    Does Fraggle Rock count? If so that, if not MWoO definitely.

    11. What is your favorite/ least favorite repaint?
    Marvin Suggs

    12. What are your favorite non-pack-in accessories?
    Crazy Harry's dynamite plunger, Rowlf's piano, Janice's guitar, Lew Zealand's accessories, Sam Eagle's podium, and Chef's blunderbuss.

    13. What is your favorite pack-in figure?
    Sitting Robin w/ RC Kermit

    14. Who are four characters you wish we could have gotten?
    Bobo the Bear, Bean Bunny, Sal Manilla, and Standing Robin.

    15. Of the characters planned for 2005, which one are you most upset over not getting?
    Sal Manilla, poor Johnny needs his monkey...

    16. Of the officially unannounced-for-release figures, which one do you wish we could have gotten?
    Probably Photographer Gonzo or Bobo.

    17. If you could change one thing about the line, what would it be?
    I think a) If JHC held onto the Muppets for awhile longer and b) More retailers picked up the line, this would've been one of the most succesful action figure lines ever. We would've seen all of the figures through Series 14 that Ken listed awhile back. Let's just hope Sesame Street gets off the rocky path it's on right now and skyrockets! :excited:

    By packaging variations, I was referring to how The Swedish Kithcen Playset and mega Beaker were released in both "25th Anniversary" packaging and the blue packaging. That kind of variations, not figure/ character variants.

    Although The Muppet Musicians of bremen wasn't in the contract, Rover Joe did appear on The Muppet Show a few times, so I think he might have been included in the contract (I could be wrong).

    Top five Figures-Animal,Kermit,Uncle Deadly,S9 Cheff and Dr strangepork

    Figures that were better-Lew Zealand,an amazing turn around from Ken and Co.

    Figures that were worse-Uncle Deadly,it's wonderfull to have such an accurately detailed sculpt but his colour appears way off model,and that's a shame!

    Best Playset-Is there a bad one!...i'll give it to the Swinetreck for being show accurate and managing to hold it's own against the Sweadish Kitchen. Not an easy act to follow!

    Favourite exclusive is Uncle Deadly.

    Characters i wish could have been made-Mahna Mahna,Gloat ,Boppity and George the Janitor-If the afforementioned frackles could have been done as pack in's then throw Wayne and Wanda in there.
    And if i had to pick just one out of that lot...Mahna Mahna!

    Favourite accesories- the piano and the mop bucket.

    Thanks!
    It's been fun!
