    I am guessing that the news letter will be out tomorrow, and the pre-order sometime after that. It will be interesting to see actually when. I am wondering about poor Gonzo. I wonder when his pre-order will be. Wouldn't it be nice if Terry had the first prototype for Fozzie done and just in time when Comic Con gets here? That would be so Awesome!

    This reminds me back in the day when I'd wait to see who was going to be in the next line of the Palisades figures. Then I'd find out and want to know who was in the line after that! Only problem is....we got like four or five figures at a time with just a fraction of the price. I'm not complaining though! I'm lovin it! :)

    I think you may be dissappointed expecting Piggy for 2008, and will have to go back to guessing the second and third.;)

    I am really hoping they make Scooter and Rowlf. It would be cool to have the main "male " Muppets........the EM would be another cool thing but they would be sooooo expensive. Could you imagine how much Dr Teeth would cost! Or how about Sam the Eagle!

    Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Hopefully for not a very long time! :mad:

    Animal is going to be too tall for my display case, so he is going to be sitting down.I then started looking for a drummer's stool and found a great child's drum set.It is a 3PC drum set with stool by Power Play suitable for 3 yrs and up.It usually retails for around $20.I wont be able to fit the drum set in my display either but I can use the stool and just hang onto the drum set if I want to photograph him with it.

    Im displaying Animal on a shelf next to Kermit in front of an original, 11 by 15 3-page, fold-out, brochure for The muppet Show winning an Emmy , that was a supplement to Variety Magazine. A great display piece for the true fan. The brochure shows many of the guest stars that appeared on the popular show during the first two and other seasons. He will be posed in a mean way so he can be held back by Floyd or another Muppet. I like your idea as well muppetperson.

    I'll be hanging Animal from the ceiling of my office, next to my Kermit. like the parachuting credit sequence in Great Muppet Caper. eventually i'll have all of them hanging over my desk.

    and if you hang Animal upside down, it won't matter if he looks a little off. problem solved.

    Expected to ship: Fall 2007

    Once again, it is REALLY sad that they are shipping this baby in the fall. I have three things plus Gonzo to get at the end of the year now. I wished they would learn to spread things out a little bit better!

    we don't mind the fall shipment thing so much, but then, hubby and I both have September birthdays, so they arrive as birthday presents :)

    Well, there you have it.
    Tomorrow we preorder and begin the loooong wait for what must be in quite a big box.

    Thanks. I used the wrong word.It is their goal (but not there policy as they do come across hitches) to try and ship within 2 months from pre order.

    For those of you in the CS for today's ordering (or general public for tomorrow's ordering), here's a little tip.

    The past sales on MR's site (Star Wars exclusive minis, and another replica) have lead the site to crash or come close to it. Most of the time it happens on the product page, so folks are unable to get to it to order the item.

    So a helpful trick that might get you past the hullabaloo if it happens with Animal: If you haven't done so already, register with Master Replicas. Im pretty sure you can register without joining the CS. Once registered, go to the Animal product page, and click "Add to Wishlist". He'll be added to your wishlist. Now, when your time comes to order, log back in (if you close the Internet window), and click "Wishlist", it's in the "Your Cart" box in the top right hand corner. From your wishlist, you can directly add an item to your cart and then go through the checkout process.

    Well with Animal shipping in Fall, more likely Gonzo won't ship till early next year. Of course you'll be able to order him before then. The factories gotta make all the Animal's before they make the Gonzo's obviously.

    This pic of Animal is way better than the other pics.........the nose is still a little small though.

    Part of the reason also for the "delay" in shipping is that years past, many fans have voiced a concern that releasing the product for sale and then immediately shipping doesn't give enough forwarning. There's a thin line there, either shipping too early (remember, the Star Wars stuff would always sell out almost instantly, meaning if you dont place an order on the first day, you're out of luck), or shipping too late (usually due to production delays). The good thing is, you can rest assured that we're going to get a top notch product. Better to wait for a quality item than quickly get a junk item, right?
