Series 2 Arrives: When and Where

Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by Phillip, Oct 22, 2002.

    " There here!!!"

    yes!!!! I got home yesterday morning from Chicago and i called my local ToysRus, the guy said two truck loads of stuff arived that day and they wouldn't be put on the shelfs till tomarrow, he didn't know if the figures would be in this shippment but it would be a good idea to call tomarrow morning(today)

    well after i called TRU, i called a local comic book store not too far from my house, here's the conversation...

    Me: Hello, could you please tell me if you have the Muppet Show action figures series two?...

    the guy: Yeah....

    me:...OH! You Have them?!?!?!

    the guy: Yes!

    Me: could you hold a set for me i'll be right there!!:

    when he said "yeah" i thought he "ment hold on, i'll go check..." untill my brain could figure out what he said, LOL!

    I got them all! beside the playset, two fozzie(one for my cosin for her birthday) gonzo, crazy harry and both folyd! yes! both floyd!

    they still had a few kermit and piggys, i think i might buy another kermit for my other cosin and try to get a gonzo one as well for another one of my cosins.

    i called toysRus today around 3:00 ET and all they had left was crazy harry, so TRU did get them today, and now they are about gone! sooooooooo happy and glad i got mine yesterday! they also said the animal stage is not out yet.

    media play is all sold out two, and the guy had no idea about the animal band stage or VC Blue Fozzie. so i guess both are not out.

    EB: has nothing, nothing at all, and i have money down on all of them so i will be getting it back even on two fozzies, so i'll get 15 bucks back,but keep the rest of my money down on two animal band stages, EX CH gonzo, and reg Gozno because i want another one for my cosin like i said before, also i want another band stage for a friend of mine.

    Zack)Rowlf the, whoooo hooooooooo! I'm not stuck in the gutter like last time!!!Dog.

    I found all 4 Muppet Show series 2 AND.....THE BLUE FLOYD VARIANT!!!! In just one place!!

    If anyone lives near Walt Disney World, go to the Disney/MGM Studios and the Muppet Vision 4D attraction. The shop located there has the new series 2 figures. They just got them in last week and still had quite a few of them available! There were no Blue Floyd's on the pegs, but when I asked the Cast Member, she gladly went and found him for me in the back!!

    Also, if you are looking to collect the Sideshow Muppet Show Busts, they are carrying them too!! I got the whole set of those as well! Merry Christmas to me!!!

    I asked about the EM stage as well, but it hasn't arrived but is due in any time.

    My local Eb had all of Series 2, plus variant floyd (well, they did until I got there) and the mayhem stage. I grabbed one of each but they should still have the reg. figures and another stage or two.

    I found Floyd, Fozzie, and Gonzo at my local Suncoast today. Either I got there kinda late, or they didn't get many figures (I didn't see any Crazy Harry or Vacation Fozzies)...

    finally ebgames has shipped me my order, the figures are great. one question i thought crazy harrys barrel opened up for storage of the bombs. it doesnt matter if it doesnt just thought i read that here somewhere. cant wait for the rest of the electric mayhem

    WOMAN! WOMAN! Well-Known Member

    It does, but it opens differently than what I saw in previous pictures. I THINK I once saw it with an opening as if the barrel splits down the middle -- making two cross sections hinged together.

    But mine opens like a pot -- grab the little handle on top and pull the cap off. Ken, am I wrong about the old photos, or was this a change in plan?

    We never had a hinge on it. Your way of opening is the correct one.

    Hey gaffercat...grab the nipple on top of the barrell and pull. Should come off.

    Thought I'd post this here since it seems like the hot topic to post our Muppets figures news. Phil if you're interested, the figures arrived here in Puerto Rico today. Here's the full article.

    Announcer: "We take you now to Kermit The Frog out in the field."
    Kermit: "Hi-Ho, Kermit The Frog here for Sesame Street News! I'm standing here in the darkness of Puerto Rico, in front of the Count's Castle #2. You can tell that it's his castle #2 because of the two skulls above the doorway. *Pointing to skulls* See, one, two. Two skulls.
    *Female squeaky voice heard singing off-screen.*
    Hark, I think I hear someone coming now.
    (Maiden #2 enters)
    Hello mam, Kermit The Frog for Sesame Street News.
    Oh hi, froggie, my name is Maiden #2.
    Maiden #2?
    Yes, the Count asked me to come and stay here for a while since he's already got a maiden at his first castle's #1 tower.
    Well, that explains a lot.
    [Fanfare of trumpets and thunder and lightning are heard in the distance.]
    Wait a minute, I think the Count von Count is about to make his announcement.
    The Count von Count: "Greetings, it is I, the Count von Count! And do you know why they call me the Count? It's because I love to count things! Well, today I have something truly vonderful to count. My Palisades Toys Muppet Show action figure collection just expanded! The EBX stores got their shipments in today, December 3, and now my collection has grown to eight, eight figures!
    1 Kermit The Frog
    2 Miss Piggy
    3 Fozzie Bear
    4 Dr. Bunsen Honeydew
    5 Beaker
    6 Crazy Harry
    7 Dr. Teeth
    8 Floyd.
    Oh wait a second, I forgot the Steel Rabbit who came with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew. That makes number nine! Yes! 9 nifty Muppets action figures!
    *Thunder and lightning are heard once again, but louder this time.)
    This is Kermit The Frog returning you now to your regular programming.

    Over the past weekend I was in Columbus at their annual Mid-Ohio Comic Con. As I was walking around the sales room I ran into a dealer who had the Animal/Eletric Mayhem playset. I was FLOORED!! Talk about an awesome set!! Animal looked incredible and I won't even begin to try to praise the stage. I quickly said "I'll take it" before even looking at the price tag (luckily it was only $25). :)

    I carried that box around with me for the rest of the afternoon. Everywhere I turned I was getting stopped: "Where did you get that?" or "OMG, I LOVE the Muppets. Did you see their movie on NBC?" It was almost as bad as when I wore a Miss Piggy t-shirt to the gay pride event in Columbus the year before. People still remember/love the Muppets!!!

    I went to a Suncoast video after the convention and picked up all of series 2 (I passed on the varient Floyd. Just didn't jump out at me). I thought series one was great but...wow...I really love the new series. Fozzie is probably my favorite of the carded figures, but Animal is THE best figure of the line thus far, IMO. If only Piggy had been held back a little bit she might have turned out as nice as these guys. Hoping that the First Mate Piggy has a new head sculpt.

    If you are on the fence as to whether or not to continue collecting the Muppet figures, jump down now and run out to your local comic shop/TRU/Suncoast and pick these figures up!!

    well i pulled on my nipple for awhile then i realized you meant the nipple on the barrel. it did come right open :) thanks ken

    Finally got 'em!! I went to EB & picked up all 4 of them, plus the playset! Talk about hitting the motherload!! They even had the Floyd variant, which I left sitting there since I have personal hostility against repaint variants.

    I'll try to review them when I get more chance to open them up & check them all out.

    They're finally showing up in Texas. Reports from Austin the other day, now they've all shown up in Dallas in both EB and Suncoast/Sam Goody including playset and Vacation Fozzie at Suncoast.

    No sign of them at any TRU's, though.

    series 2 is also out in the houston area, but i have only seen them in a comic shop, not in tru or anywhere. they were a little bit more expensive at the comic shop so i've been looking else where and haven't seen anything!

    TRUs in New England should have Series 2 sometime next week, in some cases as early as TOMORROW

    (just the figures though, no EM playset yet)
  16. who knew setting up toys and staring at them could be so rewarding?! i hit the proverbial "motherload" today in tuscaloosa, alabama. i found all 4 series 2 figures at Toys R Us....then I ventured on over to Musicland, where i discovered 1 Vacation Fozzie(blue shirt) hanging under the cheech N chong figures! good timing I suppose as none of them had been anywhere only 2 days ago.

    they look so awesome on display, it makes me grin and feel warm and fuzzy. im suspicious that they all start moving around engaging in various muppet antics when i leave the room ;)

    i hope this line sells up to the standard, it would be a seriously horrible tragedy if they didnt keep making them. props to palisades..... :cool:

    TRU in Albany, NY will have Series 2 when the doors open in the morning. My brother unloads trucks there and he's saved us a case!

    TRUs all over the USA should have them this week.

    I'm tired of Musicland/Sam Goody. They were extremely rude to me on the phone the last time I checked in with them. They didn't seem to know when the figures would come in because they don't place the orders, but in past weeks they have assured me that they are coming soon. They have now done a 180 and said they put action figures at the end of their list. This was not true for series one. I raved about the store back then. I am now retracting that statement. They totally suck. Maybe it was a bad day. I was also surprised they didn't cite the port stike as an issue. It's Christmas time. All such toys should top their lists! What idiots.:mad:

    Well, it cost me nearly fifty bucks, but I tracked down a set of Series 2 figures yesterday -- including Animal w/ the Electric Mayhem stage!

    Most Toys R' Us' got them -- and sold out -- of them over the snowstorm days in my area (Towson, MD). Still, I managed to find a Gonzo and Crazy Harry at one of them. The real win came at a mall, where I happened into a Suncoast Video. They had some of everything, plus three Electric Mayhem stages!

    houston finally has them at i think all retailers (tru, suncoast, eb games, etc.). luckily i was at suncoast today and they had at least three of everything and two suncoast exclusive vacation fozzies, and the variant floyd!
