Top 5 Master Replicas Muppet Wishlist

    I just got Animal today, to round out my three, and if this ends up being all that's ever made, I'll enjoy them immensely. If Fozzie somehow comes out, I'll be overjoyed. But I was thinking which ones I would need to make my life complete and I came up with a top 5.

    1:Fozzie (obviously)
    2:Camilla
    3:piggy
    4:Robin
    5:Rowlf (or Beaker, I guess)

    Beaker seems like an obvious choice from a marketing standpoint, and I like Beaker, but without Bunsen, I think it would seem like a cheap marketing ploy. I picked Rowlf, just because he's such a great character and wouldn't require any clothing at all. Camilla and Robin, again, no clothing, and great smaller characters, which would be cheaper, and I don't like Rizzo or Pepe enough to go out of my way to get them. And Piggy, just because she deserves it.

    What top 5 characters would you guys need to complete your life with the Muppets?

    Though I still need to purchase a Gonzo - my top 5 would be....

    1 - Fozzie
    2 - Rowlf
    3 - Piggy
    4 - Beaker
    5 - Dr Teeth or Scooter

    Not really into the idea of making small Muppets like Camilla or Robin. Though great small characters - I would rather see production runs made smaller and even prices raised slightly, instead of trying to make smaller Muppets just to get cheaper options.....

    well after Fozzie

    I would need Piggy
    then Robin or Rizzo would be nice (I could use a smaller one for my evil Muppet Nativity set plan.. which sadly looks like it will die incomplete.. but.. you never know..) Robin would make more sense, but I could have a lot more fun with a Rizzo..
    after that..
    Statler and Waldorf would count as 2, but i'd love to have them..
    and for #5.. honestly, i'd like some muppet penguins.. but i doubt that'd have a chance ever, so will go with .. Floyd cuz Animal needs someone to hold him back..

    Yeah, my point with the smaller muppets wasn't so much to make them cheaper but for variety. I'm guessing Robin, for example, would still have at least a $150-200 price point, which would be harder to justify than spending $300 on Gonzo, in my opinion. It was more for the same reason Palisades did as many of the smaller guys as they could and that's just to show size variation in the collection. I think having a scale Robin next to a scale Fozzie would be absolutely awesome.

    My complete dream list of replicas if there were 5 real spots left and they could actually get them to market like the other three. This would be the order:

    1. Fozzie
    2. Miss Piggy
    3. Scooter
    4. Rowlf
    5. Pepe

    Runners up: Dr. Teeth, Janice, Sam, Beaker and Bunsen.

    Even Fozzie is not likely to happen, but this is a wish/dream list.
    By the way for clarification, size doesn't make a replica any less expensive. Smaller parts can actually be harder in many cases.

    Bl**dy tough one this is. Ok, er...let's say:

    1. Fozzie (ABSOLUTE MUST ! ! ! !)
    2. Miss Piggy (BECAUSE IT'S MISS PIGGY ! ! ! ! )
    3. Rowlf (QUINTESSENTIAL JIM! ! !)
    4. Scooter (C'MON!)
    5. Dr. Teeth, Janice, Floyd, Statler & Waldorf, Sam the Eagle, Bunsen & Beaker, Zoot, Crazy Harry, Rizzo, Swedish Chef, Uncle Deadly, Mahna Mahna & Snowths, Robin, Sweetums and Lew Zealand...just the essentials!

    Runners Up: Everyone else!

    i seriously can't believe u r asking me to pick 5. that is just kooky. for my collection to be complete, ill need all of them. but ik that is almost impossible to ill give u the ones i feel i definitely need. but they r in no order.

    fozzie, piggy, dr. teeth, janice, zoot, floyd, rowlf, pepe, scooter, statler and waldorf, bunsen and beaker, and sam r some of my must haves. i also would love for them to possibly have some sesame and fraggles :)

    My first two picks are in order, though technically I'd love to have Rowlf first, but since Fozzie is halfway through what with the protos & all, I gave him #1. The rest are in no particular order, maybe a collective #3, lol.

    1. Fozzie Bear!
    2. Rowlf the Dog! - #1 Muppet with me, right with Kermit.
    • Missy Piggy - Just would be wierd to not have her, plus she's just a cute-lookin pig.
    • Robin the Frog & Camilla 2-Pack (hee-hee) - I've always plugged for these two, love the Muppet frogs, and Gonzo needs his lady.
    • Dr. Teeth! - One of the best designed Muppets ever imo. Plus, obviously, another beautiful Jim character.

    Okay so I cheated by choosing Robin & Camilla as one, but so what? Who knows, maybe MR will get back on their feet and continue on until... let's be hopeful & say forever!

    Long live The Muppets. :)

    1. Sam the Eagle (I haven't bought any yet but this would be my first and start me on a path I think. I might still go for one if I can find it cheap enough but I just don't have the cash right now.)
    2. Fozzie
    3. Rowlf
    4. Floyd (to go with Animal)
    5. Miss Piggy

    1. Fozzie
    2. Rizzo for gonzo
    3. Anyone from the electric mayhem for animal
    4. Rowlf
    5. Miss Piggy

    The bunsen and beaker, statler and waldorf, the swedish chef, I want all of the made, but the above would be my top five, as they all complement each other, and would look complete even if none of the others were made afterwords, if that makes sense.

    1. Statler and Waldorf - I would love to have these two hanging out near my home theater :)
    2. Fozzie
    3. Miss Piggy
    4. Rowlf
    5. Dr Teeth

    I'd love to see a few random muppets as well. Crazy Harry, complete with plunger, would be great. Lew Zealand, with fish! Well, maybe not. Sam the American Eagle, Rizzo, maybe some more friends for Animal.

    1. Fozzie (MUST have the bear!)
    2. Miss Piggy (if it never happens I wouldn't be too upset but it's be nice to complete the main 5)
    3. The Mayhem (I want 'em all and couldn't rank them)
    4. Pepe
    5. Rizzo
    6. Rowlf
    7. Uncle Deadly (seriously, how cool would that be!)
  13. Davina

    oh.. my hubby would just die if he could have an uncle deadly....
  14. LewZealand

    LewZealand New Member

    Yeah, I'm casting a vote for Deadly, too ...

    Of course, what they really need to do is SWEETUMS! :)
  15. Nick22

    Nick22 Active Member

    that would be sweet to see sweetums! full size! :D lol. but the chances of that are not very good at all.
