    Just last week...

    ...Toyfare started shipping, or so that was the plan. I'd expect at least a week or two before you'll start seeing too many of them show up.

    They should be at TRU any day, and Amazon should start shipping as well.

    Orlando, Florida

    6/17 Florida Maill- Sandlake Rd/Orange Blossum Trail:

    TRU- nothing. They are remodeling their store and the whole thing is just a big mess. Lot's of the TRU exclusive ET figures, though.

    EB- Managed to get 2 of each figure in the standard line. There were still a few left of each figure. The guy at the register said that they were going pretty fast. Mainly because people were buying they entire set of 4 and a few were like me and buying 2 complete sets.
    They did not have the exclusive Piggy.
    The only bad thing was that they had the figures on the lower racks (eye level of children). I suggested to him that if he had them more on adult eye-level, that they may sell even faster.

    Now to locate Beaker and Tux Kermit....

    Here in lovely east central Indiana, I have found the series at Suncoast, but not TRU or EB...mainly because we don't have an EB nearby, but our TRU definitely does not have them!

    Sweetums74: Now to locate Beaker and Tux Kermit....

    Speaking of Tux Kermit, has anyone found him yet or will it be just as easy to wait for TRU.com to ship him?

    EB Piggy in Michigan

    The EB Piggy showed up at the Briarwood EB today in Ann Arbor, so I'd assume it's also hitting the other EB's in the state.

    Exclusive Miss Piggy In NY

    I just got a call from my EB and they said that the Exclusive Miss Piggy is in but only her, the regular line is not out yet.
    Gee, that's kinda funny, most people have there set first and are still waitting for the exclusive or got it a little later. well anyways they had two, one set aside for me and the other on display.

    so i payed the rest of the payment on the pig and my younger brother desided to buy the other one because he wants to sell it on e-bay, what a mook.

    the guy at the store just got a call after my brother was just about to walk out about someone trying to have a piggy set aside. the guy said "the last one just walked out the door" "Boy those pigs sell fast"!

    she is amazing! Thank you Ken and Mike for creating her!!!!

    Zack)Rowlf the,yes those pigs sell fast!!!Dog.

    Exclusive Piggy has arrived at the Kitsap Mall in Silverdale, Washington. The very nice manager called me as soon as she came in.

    BTW-- I spoke to someone at TRU a few days ago-- still no Muppets-- but they were polite and knew what I was talking about. Since I've whined about how useless TRU employees are, I figured I ought to give them credit when they do have their act together.

    They have them at Media Play in Morrow, GA...so everyone check their local branch. The price is $8.99. No exclusives.

    Love them! They're great!

    Tuxedo Kermit!

    Reports are coming from California of Tuxedo Kermits hitting TRU stores - be on the lookout! Most areas of the country should see them within a week, two max.

    I'm getting so upset. Nobody around these parts has them in yet. I hate that Mississippi always has to be last in everything. Bleh.

    Does anyone know if On Cue will carry them (since they are part of the EB conglomerate - however you spell it). We have a few in varies nearby cities. I don't think we have any EB stores nearby though.

    I'm gonna cry if I don't get one soon. I'll be the only kid on the block without my very own, super special deluxe, muppet action figure.

    The Redmond and Everett, WA EB's have got the Mis Piggy exclusive. I called both, it sounded like they had alot of both. I got mine from Everett.

    P.S. Can a admin/mod change my user name from grimgo to gringo. I spelled it wrong when registering.

    On Cue is part of the Musicland chain. Musicland (although hardly any of those are left), On Cue, Media Play, Sam Goody, Suncoast. For Series 1 they have the assortment and playsets. They will be in the exclusive program in Series 2.

    Wizard informed me that shipments were leaving their Congers, NY facility starting Monday (yesterday). Depending on where you are, you should get in the next week or less. :D

    That's so cool!! Now they're in New England! There's a EB on the way home (in Copley Square) so I can check them out! Unfortunately, I just ran out of money. But Whatever, I can always borrow some from some sucker...

    I went into a KB Toys (I couldn't get to TRU theis weekend) and all they had was the same old Harry Potter, Pokemon, DIgimon, Wrestling garbage! No wonder why I couldn't find them. They can't sell these flavors of the month yet!
