Discussion in 'Muppet Merchandise' started by tomahawk, May 28, 2004.
I saw it. It's the biggest of them all.
Can we see pictures of it?
All muppet fans take note!
Hey everyone, this is to clear up the confusion over the Sam Eagle plush and where to find it.
Sam is being carried only in Disneyland, California at present. The mail order number given previously on this forum is the number for Walt Disney World, Florida, which is why if you called it you were told there was no such thing as a Sam Eagle plush. So much for company communication.
The mail order number for Disneyland is 1-800-362-4533.
We are slated to have Sam arrive at Disney-MGM Studios, Florida, around mid-June. At that point you can use the Walt Disney World mail order, but it's not toll-free like the other. (go figure)
Hope this is helpful!
Do you know if they will make other characters like sweetums and the band?
So can we get a picture of this thing, or what?
Check it out. They've got him at MouseShoppe. Cute!
He's great. Perhaps a bit to cute and fluffy for Sam though? Would anyone be able to pick me up a couple as I live in UK and mail them to me? I will of course cover costs of dolls posting and Paypal fees.? Thanks!
That is a really sad Sam plush. It dosen't even look like him. I wish Disney would get their act together and make some nice Muppet plushes. It just make me mad to see the Muppets like this.
Miss Piggy look's like a hooker.
Animal looks like he has been shaved.
Fozzie looks like someone ran his head over.
Bean Bunny dosen't look cute.
Scooter looks cross eyed.
And now they made Sam look cute. This make me sick! And not just Disney but look what Sababa has done to Janice making her look like a hooker.
What can we do as Muppet fans to correct this problem so this won't happen any more?
Well, I for one like him. Been collecting Muppets a LONG time, and am thrilled to see Sam finally get the plush treatment. Can't wait until mine arrive.
Muppet fans amaze me though. People complain and complain about the lack of Muppet merchandise, and then when stuff gets made, they complain that it's not good enough. What do you people want? Plush that looks exactly like the puppet..? Ain't gonna happen, because Henson doesn't want merchandise out there that looks too perfect. Believe me, I know.
But I wholeheartedly disagree about Miss Piggy and Janice looking like "hookers." While some of the Disney and Sababa plushes DO leave something to be desired, I think that most of them are quite good. I was very impressed with the Janice up-close and in-person.
There's nothing anyone can do to change the products that companies are currently making. Except don't buy them. But if you choose to go that route, you don't have much room to complain when products don't get made at all...
Just my thoughts.
EEEEEEEEW! Sam looks horrible. I wouldn't pay any price for that. I've seen all the other Muppet Vision 3-d Dolls at California Adventures, and they all look great, but Sam looks just plain bad.
I agree that Sam doesn't look that good. I won't be getting one, but it is still nice to finally see a plush version of him made.
In my opinion, the Sababa plushes look much better than the Disney. They are larger and just look much more like the characters. However, the Sababa Muppet bean babies do not look nearly as good as their larger ones.
I just picked up a Swedish Chef and Janice from Suncoast and they are great. Now if Sababa could only make Scooter, Rowlf, and other great characters...
Just past up sam at Disneyland very ugly!
I Have A Sam
I got the new Sam doll in the mail two days ago and he's great!
I got mine today from a friend who went to Disneyland Resort last week. BUT, I also got the one I ordered (just in case my friends couldn't find it!).
So I've got one for sale or trade. I've traded VERY successfully with BornBlue, and I've got great eBay feedback under my wifes ID, miss_lucienda.
I'd like to trade for Lew Zealand and Crazy Harry, and I'll pay shipping, OR, 12 bucks (actual price) and shipping.
Lemme know! I'm gonna start a separate thread too.
Meh. That's all I can say about this Sam.
Yeah, I agree with Sababa being the best, but the JHH-styled characters from the original MV3D run (well, Foz and Gonzo at least; I didn't get the others) are a bit better than the recent Sababa issues -- and not just because I can't stand Gonzo's recent weird attire. The new Foz/Gonz just don't look right to me for some reason...
And BTW, the Muppet Baby plushes/beans were produced by Toy Play.
My only real complaint about most of these plushes is that, frankly, $15-17 is really, really high (at least there's always clearance) for what they are.
dont they have scooter dolls in california and florida
from what i waz told its ONLY for DisneyLand out in CA
Theres a DisneyLand in CA, Never knew that.
I just got back from Disneyland and I saw them there and was quite impressed by them. The one in this photo doesn't look as good as I remember them in the... er, plush.
