Series 10 in 2006

    It's a shame that Sal Manilla, Johnny's best friend, Standing Robin, Dr. Bob, Nurse Piggy, Nurse Janice, Baby Kermit, & Baby Piggy are currently and offically canceled for this year just because of the new TV-movie The Muppets' Wizard Of Oz that will air this spring. MC just said that they're currently will not be made! If Palisades would make the next wave next year what would you see in Series 10:

    Regular Action Figures:
    1.Sal, Penguin, & Standing Robin
    2.Sal Repaint, Penguin, and Exclusive Tux Robin
    3.Nurse Piggy
    4.Nurse Janice

    Playset: Veterinarian's Hospital with Dr. Bob

    1.Baby Kermit & Baby Piggy
    2. Tutu Pepe

    Mega Figure: Kermit

    What do you think of my Series 10 idea?
  2. The Count

    Well... Since you asked...
    First off, I'd add another figure to form the proper four-figure lineup.
    Secondly, I'd move the Sal Manilla Repaint to be the one listed as #5 following the scheme of the lineups posted here on MC.
    Third, the only other thing I'd add would be Robotbuster Bunsen and Beaker in two different releases with one half each of Robot Abraham Lincoln. Feeling a bit jipped that my champ got booted out cause they then decided to add it to the plans, only to see that completely eliminated now. I mean, even Nos4A2's nominee of Jim Henson's director's chair got booted out and it was released.

    But then again, still holding out hope for at least Sal Manilla to be released in some way before 12/31/2005 when the contract expires.

    I think any series 10 idea would be really good!

    If nothing else, we should be able to get Uncle Deadly but Sal is one of the remaining characters that we really need to make the set complete.

    Given the choice I'd love Bobo and Bean as well, but then I'd love Boppity, Fozzie's Mum, Hilda, George the Janitor, Mildred and... and the list could go on.

    However, we know the Sal sculpt is there and it's all ready to go and it would be such a waste to not have it released.

    Could you image having only half of Statler and Waldorf, or Bunsen without Beaker, or Pepe without Seymour ?(actually, for the last one I could)

    The point is, although we'll never all be happy, Sal is so important to complete the set!

    Amen to that brother ill be sad if sal isn't made
    but come on weve got so much from palisades you cant be angry at them

    I for one will hold up hope for sal until the clock strikes midnight on December 31st 2005

    Here's my idea for an official Series 10 list:

    Sal Manilla (with Muppet bird, candy-selling box, and three vegetables (cauliflower, artichoke, and cucumber)
    Beautiful Day Monster and Droop (with umbrella, mini refrigerator, and bowling ball)
    Nurse Piggy (with Baskerville and Penguin)
    Nurse Janice (with Muppet duck and standing Robin)

    Playset: Vet's Hospital with Dr. Bob (and a cow!)


    Baby Kermit and Baby Piggy of "Muppets Take Manhattan"
    Scooter II (with guitar, skates, headset, and Penguin)

    Mega Figure: Bunsen (I know production couldn't make it before it was announced)

    Whadya think about my idea?

    It sucks that the line has to end in 2005 but my "dream" series would have to be:

    I would want as many new characters as possable

    Sal with buddy Lewis Kazzager
    Bobo with buddy standing Robin
    Multch with buddy Bean
    5 pack "Diner Rat Pack" Rats from Muppets Take Manhattan

    Mega Uncle Deadly

    Playset Muppet Show Diner with Gladas (hey! I said "dream")

    It's a big shame about Tutu Pepe and the Robobusters. However this isn't to say that another company won't be picking up the action figure license via Disney. There have been some rumors, lets put it that way. Of course they'd be a lot more mainstream than what Palisades have been doing so it wouldn't really be the same.

    So... they won't even be releasing Sal Manila as an exclusive to a web site like they said?
  12. The Count

    It's highly unsure at this time Drtooth. Though Ken has said that he's trying to get at least one Sal Manilla figure released, just hope it does happen within this last year.

    That stinks. And it looks like Ren and Stimpy is unsettled too. I'm not holding my breath... but then again, we still have Zim, Sesame, and Fairly Oddparents... not much of a Buffy PALZ fan, myself....

    Um, where on MC or anywhere does it say they wont be releasing a few Muppets(like Sal) as con exclusives?

    Second, man that freaking Oz special. am I the only one that just feels sadness seeing that trailer for it? My god. It tears me apart to see all the hard work, speculation, etc weve had on here for 7 years...looking back on all the legacy of JHC for 50 years...to see everything end up how it has in 2005. If I Ran a Muppet site, I'd be telling people to email that Chris Curtain with what the *real* Muppet fans have to think.

    I mean, if Disney's next use of the Muppets is a remake of Gone with the Wind, will everyone be excited about that too? Sad.

    Luke, so there's possible talks with other companies eh? Well as the recent JimHill article points out, going 9 or 10 series with any line is amazing...even if its just 3 years. That still is very very good for the collector market.
    I'd LOVE nothing more than to see a return to the 3.5-4" style...if this would be done, I could begin to see things Disney's way.

    If another company picks them up, I hope they keep the look, style, size and everything else in scale with Palisades.
    Hey, McFarlane just picked up the Simpsons line, so AIP!

    I don't want to go searching for it, but why exactly do they have to cancel series 10 because of what will probably be a lamizoid movie anyway?
