    From dictionary.refrence.com:


    Main Entry: bazillion
    Part of Speech: n
    Definition: an infinite number or very large exaggerated number
    Example: I have reminded him a bazillion times.
    Etymology: blend of billion and gazillion
    Usage: slang
    lol...so I hope that they settle for something like a million.. because according to this, the goal is impossible X)

    anyways, as for the incorrect meters, I believe that they are either unsycned or maybe they will add up all the meters when the promotion is over... Anybody notice that they replaced Kermit and Piggy's videos from the old site with new ones...originally, the profile clips were from the DO NOT TOUCH button..

    Muppet Mindset is reporting a huge Muppet announcement Monday. Could be epic?

    Fozzie and Animal's pages are now open, along with new character intro clips, including one of Scooter that appears when you first arrive at the site.

    I like the ability to be able to click on background items- I spent a few minutes searching the items out, and laughed at a couple of them. Especially the penguin one.

    Anyone else find it a little odd when you read the character profiles that the characters are "returning to the roles" they made famous in the previous films?

    So, Kermit the Frog is an actor playing the role of Kermit the Frog? Does that imply the Muppet Movies are actually based on fictional/real characters that the Muppets have been portraying?

    I get that it might just be a joke or a "clever" way of explaining the disappearance of the characters over the past years, or possibly an out if the new movie doesn't quite live up to expectations, but doesn't it seem weird to see Kermit the Frog (Kermit the Frog) in the profiles?

    I think it's always been said that they've just been playing roles in their other movies, what surprises me is that they're saying that they were just acting during TMS too.

    well remember even as far back as The Muppet Movie...Kermit did imply they were acting in a film when robin asked if this was how the muppets really came together

    The "Like Each character enough times and get some stuff" thing unlocked Kermit's film clip, which is unfortunately just the "Being Green" parody trailer.

    That leads me to wonder if Piggy's unlocked video will be the "Pig with the Froggy Tatoo" parody trailer.

    This also leads me to wonder if the unlockable video clips for Fozzie, Gonzo, etc. will be more parody trailers as well... :p

    yea exactly
     
  15. There's still so much that's labeled "Coming Soon"...perhaps things are added slowly to build excitement? They could probably load it all but want to tease us.

    I've noticed merchandise for all movies now come out just as the movie comes out. I don't like that at all. Even a couple years ago when the new TMNT movie came out, the TMNT movie action figures were on store shelves over a month and a half before then. And they sold solidly.

    But now, movie merch (with certain exceptions) comes out just after the film. That Real Steal movie has toys that just popped up. Even the Smurfs movie toys didn't show up until the movie did. The merchandise can be its own best advertising, though I guess this is all because of the movie merchandise that doesn't sell. Like Tron 2.0 and (worst of all) Terminator Salvation... that came full circle. Now they're FINALLY getting dumped to dollar stores... and STILL no one wants them.

    yeah, The Tron Legacy merchandise definately took a full stop near february... the disks are still somewhat in demand..mostly Kevin Flynn's disk.. which is nearly impossible to find:grr:
