    I'm building LEGO Muppets, yes like before. But, using LEGO CUUSOO (https://ideas.lego.com/) guidelines the originals had to be taken down. Now, I have plans to re make those figures with a Muppet Studio set. It will have a stage with interchangable sets (ex. Muppet Labs, The Arches, Swinetrek) and Backstage. Now, where does the backstage go? I put it behind the stage. It appears though that Backstage is actually next to the stage, but oh well. Now I'm not quire finished yet, but any recommendations would be nice. If anyone also has a way to contact the guy who originally created the idea, please let me know.

    I'd love large sized Muppets, like a large Kermit, sort of like Mixels, but in Muppet form, with the joints. Because a Kermit with mini-figure head with his face on it is not too fitting.

    MURP!!!!


    (had to);)

    But you got to love how Disney licensed The Lone Ranger out to Lego, but refuses to make a Muppet set. Are they afraid it would only yield Duplos?

    I wouldn't like it in duplo, unless they do regular AND duplo.

    That's my thoughts exactly. Though a Muppet Babies Duplo set would be awesome...

    It would definitely make sense.

    Sadly, I don't know how to make custom LEGO Duplo. I'll try to make that though. That's be good for another entry.

    I wouldn't do the heads n' stuff yourself. You can tell lego to do it. Well once you reach 100,000 votes.

    I have to at least make a example. I'm waiting on some stuff, so I can't start just yet

    I'm so glad someone is having another go at doing Muppet Lego. I think you're idea of a Muppet Studios theatre like set, is a great idea. It would be the perfect way to get a variety of Muppet characters as minifigures.

    Just adding to the conversation. The best I could think of doing is taking an old large Muppet Babies PVC and shoving a square Duplo block at the bottom. That's essentially what Licensed Duplo figures are now. Just large PVC's that attach to them.

    Weird, I'll probably include a picture (Sticker) as part of a decoration.

    I would so Hope that lego would pick this idea should it actually happen, I've been extremely underwhelmed by all the other cuusoo sets so far bar the Delorean, btw just out of curiosity what prices would you set for all of the above listings?

    Everything is one big set. It looks like the Muppet Studio would be a big and $$$ set. I hope to start making Kermit soon.

    Cool, what material are you going to use for sculpting Kermit's head?
     
  17. FunnyBear

    FunnyBear Active Member

    A blank LEGO head. I can't make/use any custom parts. I do have a few cheats for ears. (I'm gonna use the cape material.
