Photo Replica Speculation - Coming next?

Discussion in 'Muppet Replicas' started by Beauregard, Dec 26, 2006.

    Honestly I think they're being too ambitious with their release schedule - we're talking well over $1000 worth of Muppets due to hit between now and the end of 2008, and if there's four characters in 2009 that would probably be at least another $1000. I don't think there's the fan base to support that sort of financial investment. I'll be really happy with Fozzie and Piggy, and if they can get him looking good, Gonzo. Animal and Rizzo will be something I'll think about, but are by no means a certain purchase.

    How long does Master Replicas have the liscense for the Muppets? Cuz honestly, they can just focus on Gonzo, Fozzie, Piggy, Rizzo, Rowlf, Scooter, and Pepe. I think after that, they'll be gambling with any of the other characters.

    Since I'm posting...Is Rizzo gonna have his yellow hat and red jacket we see him in now-a-days or is he gonna be naked like back on the Muppet Show?

    I'm kinda hoping Rizzo will be in his sports jacket and cap, especially if they expect him to be the same price as Kermit and Animal. He's only a little guy.
    I think the sales or preorders of the next few replicas will have an impact on when and if future replicas will be released. When you start talking about characters like Scooter and Pepe, less "die hard" Muppet fans would have no interest in them.

    i think Pepe would be a big seller. My friends who aren't really into the Muppets find Pepe HILARIOUS so i think he'd sell pretty well. If he's $200 - $300 I don't think that's too high of a price. That's just me thought! :crazy:

    Actually, I'm a "die hard" Muppet fan and I'm not interested in Pepe. He's not a "classic" character to me. Anything that came after Jim I'm not really interested in.

    Frogboy...... pal you took the words RIGHT OUT of my mouth about Fozzie there! :) I got Kermit, pre-ordered Animal, Gonzo as soon as he gets "fixed", and I plan on getting Fozzie and Piggy and i would also like to see Scooter, Rowlf and Pepe and then after that who ever else thay want... like Beauregard and so forth :smirk:

    Kinda my thoughts too. I would try and afford Pepe and other "post-Henson" characters but I wouldn't be too disappointed if I couldn't get him.

    One character that I would absolutely love to have but can guess Master Replicas won't do is Uncle Deadly. I thought he was absolutely ace and would make a really cool replica!

    How about if Master Replicas could make obscure Muppet characters, such as the Blue Frackle (Boppity), Droop, and Shaky Sanchez?

    Well, it's nice to speculate, but I can't imagine in my wildest stretch of imagination that they would sell very many of those... especially as photo puppets. Now, if they were actual hand puppets... maybe.

    Just what I was thinking when I was watching the Twiggy episode last night. He has a lot of characters but I seriously doubt they would sell many. He isn't recognisable enought. That goes for the likes of Boppity and Droop too. A lot of the more obscure characters probably don't even exist anymore, in puppet form or original design plans.

    I wonder if they could make Java Muppets, Muppephones or even find a way to release a generic rat that can be customized? :cool:
