    I'm just over the moon that I got these prices! Originally they had two packages with prices. One for Facebook and one for Twitter. After I entered the Facebook contest, I got a nice email conversation with the contestholder. And when they saw how big a Muppet fan I am, they didn't start the Twittercontest and just gave me the price! This weekend I'm gonna buy a frame for the poster. :laugh:

    a ton of signed photos from most of the current performers

    A whole set of production used original hand drawn story boards from the Muppet Ladder scene in MMW.

    Also from MMW, Blue prints of a number of studio sets.. these are interesting as they show how room for the performers are worked into the set sesign. Production used call sheets, shooting schedules, crew pass

    MMW guest pass/lanyard to the world premiere

    Hey what do you guys think about collecting newpaper and magazine clippings, I used to do this as a kid with many different things but sadly my box of clippings was desroyed. If you can find the magazines and papers it can be a cheap way of collecting something different. I have seen people selling clippings on Ebay but some can be expensive with people asking for silly postage costs for something that dosent way anything and is flat.

    I have 4 large scrap books of muppet related stuff. I starting cutting it out and keeping it during the late 80's, I got UK newspaper coverage of jim's death. I also bought a large lot on eBay with loads of newspaper and magazines from the UK during the Muppet Show era, some great articles!! Loads of stuff. I love looking through them.

    One day you should scan them all to make an archive of Muppet articles!

    I think Panmanthe2nd is right it would be a great archive.

    I never knew they released that on DVD! When and what company?

    It was released in 2010, when Lionsgate had the rights to Henson stuff. It's also available in the newer 30th Anniversary Complete Series set as Bonus Material but I do not have that set, though I am considering it.

    A Sesame Street T-shirt with Oscar the Grouch pictured with the slogan, "S is for Scram!":grouchy:
    I think I still have some of the Achaia Fraggle Rock comic books and I'm pretty sure I have the first issue of the Sesame Street comic book.
    I've got the "Family Reunion" arc of The Muppet Show comic book (mainly for the reintroduction of Skeeter to the Muppet universe.):fanatic:
    I believe I may have an issue of Marvel's Star Comics' run of "Muppet Babies" as well.
