Check out this page! Its my photos!
COOL! I gotta go get 'em today!!
Got mine today too! Thanks for the heads up!
I must have Wembley!
LOL, I love that you were watching Friends!
Wembley is my favorite! But his hair doesn't have any yello, its all orange and greenish!
They are great! They are the Sababa plush toys arent they?
I wonder if they will be bringing any of the Sababa plushes into Australia. I know they had a few of the muppet ones at a bookstore called borders, now they only have animal and piggy left and piggys hair is all tangled and there still $30 each.
Am I the only one who doesn't care for the way Sababa Fraggle plushes are design? I much perfer the 80s Hasbro versions. I do own the red fraggle from that era.
Well I love the new ones, I have
Boober (in the box)
And the Doozers From Hasbro!
I love Sababas Fraggles, if you hold them and look at the faces they look exactly like the real Fraggles! I love the hair also! Instead of yarn!
The quality of these Fraggle dolls far surpass ANY Fraggle product prior!
They look great!
The dolls look too cute. As though the company that makes them want the younger generation to think these are "Fraggle Babies" or something
If you see these Fraggles somewhere in Sydney, please contact me as I would love to buy them.
I sure will. For all info like that just be sure to go to the muppets downunder forum regularly.
When the site is back up and running a where to buy section will be there aswell as collectables section of whats available in Australia.
I agree with you. They've been "plush-isized" a bit too much here. I have the complete collection of Fraggle dolls from the Tomy company from the early 80s, and for the most part, I've found those to be the most faithful dolls made of the Fraggles. I say for the most part because the Tomy Wembley doll, cute though he was, didn't quite mirror his TV show counterpart in appearance. So actually, in defense of these new dolls, their Wembley seems to be relatively on the money. And their Boober looks pretty tight as well. But what's with their giving Gobo long-ish hair? Even in the first version of Gobo displayed in the earliest episodes of Fraggle Rock (before they gave him shorter hair, eye lids and a vest) his hair wasn't that long. I don't want to be nit picky, but that detail bugs me. Any way, to make a long story longer, I agree with you.
Aww, I so want a Wembley doll. So cute. ^-^
Thing is, I don't know if there's even a Hot Topic in my area. -breaks out a phone book-
Here's hoping that eventually they'll perhaps create a Cantus Fraggle doll. -crosses fingers- He's my favourite, right there alongside Wems.
I can't wait to get these - especailly Boober! Anyone know when the Swedish Chef and Janice plushes by Sababa will be arriving in stores? And will Hot Topic be carrying them, as well?
I'm tellin' ya, kids, nothing would but me in a world of satisfaction more than somebody putting out a line of Sam and Friends dolls. It's gonna be the Muppet's 50th next year, after all. And while I'm dreaming, I'd like the Electric Mayhem to perform at my next birthday party.
They'd better go through with the whole thing and release Mokey too.
I just grabbed Boober today and I'll get Wembley next week (still need to get the Doozers though). And I agree that these are very realistic-looking. The hair & fur especially. The hair actually looks like real Muppet hair.
Wembley's hair was a bit surprising though. His hair is two-tone streaked, which doesn't match up with the real thing. Perhaps he dyed his hair to blend into Hot Topic better?
Could anyone tell me if there's a place on the net that sells the Sababa Wembley plush? I just checked eBay and Hot Topic's website but could only find the Red doll.
I think Suncoast is carrying Fraggle dolls now, too. I saw the plush at Hot Topic downtown at Peabody Place and they look great. I didn't realize there were 3 different colors of hair in Wembley's head!
