    If they were to make a GMC Kermit, I think it'd be cool to package Fozzie's hat in with Kermit, as well as Kermit's own hat of course. There's no use in selling the same Fozzie figure for one minor detail. I'd like to see Bellboy Rizzo from GMC!

    Gads! Those are sickeningly awesome. Jeez..... I hope the line doesn't have an untimely death as many potentionally cool lines do. I want that Gonzo & Camilla. ... and that Gonzo with the balloons hiding in the background. I think he's a PVC.
    I'd sell part of my soul if they'd do at least one freakin' fraggle figure though.;)

    I'd rather see the trenchcoat or water ballet Piggy from GMC.

    A helmeted on Piggy would most likely be sealed and reduce the play options. A TMS Biker Piggy wouldn't mean they had to make any other biker Muppets just like a Super Scooter doesn't mean they have to make more Super Muppets. I'd like TMS motorcycle Piggy because it's a lot more fun. Kermit picture on the bike, a more visible Piggy face, magnetic little cap, leather jacket. She'd be cool.

    I agree with Jamie Biker Piggy from TMS would be much cooler, she looks more dangerous (I like that)

    ;)

    I always had this thought that if we'd see Seymour (from MT) he'd be in his Bellhop outfit along with Pepe but now that someone's mentioned (I forget who) that they wanted Bellhop Rizzo from TGMC I wonder if a Rizzo/Pepe Bellhop two-pack would be a better idea.

    And one quick question for who ever can answer me this, I havn't seen all TMS episodes so i'm not quite sure on this but wasn't Bobby Benson featured just as much as Marvin Suggs, I havn't really seen him added to anybody's wish list. If he were to be made the only problem would be fitting in his baby band with out it taking up a whole playset:confused:

    I added the whole last paragraph to add this :confused: and i added this one to add this ;)

    I want the other piggy! :(

    yeah...motorcycle piggy is cool...but if they had to make it I'd like the one from TMS better...and I love that scene with Kermit and Piggy in a fight...with the funny little purple trenchcoat outfit piggy has on...

    can't wait to get pepe in a tutu!

    Hey have people been able to find zoot repaints easily? I haven't. :(

    poor me. :cry:

    Well I have one but I broke down and got a case of figures. Cost me 100 bucks! I could have spent my money better but it was the only way possible I could have gotten a repaint after EB sold out of them.

    i found a zoot repaint at eb games i think it was? well either that or at suncoast, but i'm pretty sure it was eb games. but they did only have one left, so i'm not sure if maybe i was just lucky or what....

    JAnice Figure!!!!

    I can't believe all of you guys like the Janice figure. She is not in scale with the others.

    Hopefully it's just the pic but it seems Palisades messed up the whole line with Janice.

    She is too tall!!! She is suppose to be shorter than Floyd but in the figure she is taller than Fozzie.

    So when the whole Electric Mayhem are together, she towers all over them. It's like putting a Barbie Doll next to 3 inch G.I. JOE figure. It's just not right!!! Palisades should do her over again.

    Caper, that was to prototype. She's being scaled down to fit the rest of the figures, so no worries!
  13. Zack the Dog

    Zack the Dog Active Member

    Yes that's true, they always make them bigger, if you saw Rizzo prototype he is bigger then what he's going to be. I kinda would like a bigger Rizzo though, true he will look to scale, still a little cheated i guess, with the other figs, but just by himself i'd like him more bigger.

    Zack)Rowlf the, Scooter say's we should all bow down to Sarah, JUST KINDING GUYS!!! Dog.

    Yeah i would also have liked the bigger Rizzo too - i don't care if the figures are to scale or not. If i'm spending my money i want a decent sized figure with detail that i can easily see to appreciate everything about the character. They're puppets - if Frank Oz stretched his arm up higher one day in the TV studio then any character would seem taller - there was never a strict scale, more a rough one. However i concede that most people will be displaying the figures together so wouldn't want them looking too out of place, and i'll be buying Rizzo anyway cos the accessories are so cool and he looks great.

    It's funny that 365 days ago people were freaking out about the possibility of Rizzo being too big. I trust that he'll be just right. They can't have him Kermit sized, but he doesn't have to be a flea either. It looks like they've settled on a good compromise. I kind of look at the series as one block. Some are bigger and have fewer things and some are smaller and come with lots of extras. Smaller figures don't bother me. It's actually much more fun IMHO.:)
  16. Luke

    Luke Active Member

    Yeah i agree, the advantages of a smaller figure are definitely the accessories. They are great. Yup, a compromise is the way - i wasn't expecting a 6" Rizzo. I guess we'll all see when figs like Rizzo and Pepe come out.

    Hi Jamie,
    I'm not trying to make this in a personaly way as I know your not dierectly speaking to me, but I have always rather have had a large rizzo. I'm looking at the figure on it's own rather then with all the others. My little 8 year old cosin loves Rizzo and I told him i'd buy him Rizzo as a late birthday gift (he just had his birthday) all thought I will mostlikey buy him more muppet figures for hoildays and such, right now he's only going to have this small Rizzo. Rizzo is cool, and i'm perfectly fine with the size, I just mean looking at the figure on it's own amazing self rather then thinking of him next to kermit or fozzie.

    I'm not bothered by the size at all, he will look great to the scale they gave him and as we all know the extras are GREAT! we mostlikey wouldn't be getting this much if rizzo was bigger. I'm just saying a larger Rizzo would still have worked nicely, Pepe going to be larger then rizzo, and I think it's great the Pepe will be somewhat bigger when looking at him by himself. Now nothing againts the small Rizzo at all because I think he will look PERFECT on one of the swedish chef kicthen counters or cabnents. I plan to do that with the repaint.;)

    Again I know your not saying anything negative to me or to anyone for that matter, i just wanted to give some reasons why, and that we all have different opintions even if most of the majority of people were freaking out about the possibility of Rizzo being too big because i wasn't. So i hope you understand what I mean.;)


    Zack)Rowlf the, I FINALY got a NEW keyboard!!!! no more capslock buttons sticking down!!I'm going to crack that old keyboard in half!!!hahahaha! Dog. :crazy:

    I am terribly offended. LOL! Just kiddin. :p No problem here, just thought it was funny that last year most people were making the opposite arguement. I've always thought this medium size (to Kermit's collar) was a good height. Pepe is actually smaller than Rizzo if it weren't for his hair so don't expect a giant Pepe. They'll seem just about the same size from what I have gathered. And guys - if the Mega Muppets keep doing well, I'm sure Rizzo and Pepe would be somewhere on Palisades' top 10. I think Ken has voiced his wanting to make both of them. Keep in mind they'd probably be under 7 inches.:eek:

    LOL! Hi again Jamie, Yeah i know in real "muppet" life Rizzo is bigger then Pepe, i just said that because i thought Ken said Pepe would be a little bigger then rizzo due to his arm's and such and that they needed to cheat that to make Pepe work better, i could be wrong, but that's what i remember, so that's why i said that.

    Yep Pepe and Rizzo Mega's are two mega's that i would buy! I really don't have the room for all of them nor the money as i just want to focus on the main line and PVC's, so i'm just picking certain characters, i think i would buy Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Pepe, Rizzo, and Annie Sue...Annie sue??? what the? i ment ROWLF! Hmm I might go for a mega Sam aswell. and then i'd want Piggy and Animal and Scooter and then i'd just want them all so i'd better just stick with a few before i get stuck with them all!:) ;)


    Zack)Rowlf the, loving the new keyboard!Dog.
