    hi, I think they are doing a pretty good job on the Sababba Fraggles. The Hasbro ones were too "fat" pudgey like little babies :). They were well made though. The Tomy Toys ones looked more authentic, but they were cheaply made (poor fabric and construction). I do hope Wembley's hair is the right color. Thanks for letting us know they are in stores now. :)

    visit our Muppet Store

    I just bought Gobo, Red and Boober today at Hot Topic! I absolutely LOVE them. They were a bit pricey, but I just adore them. I am looking forward to getting Mokey and Uncle Matt!!

    If you can't find them in a store near you, just pick 'em up off FraggleRocker.com.

    hi everyone, thanks for posting this thread. just got mine at a Hot Topic mall store near Seattle. great! Yes Wembley has a little too much orange in his hair, but otherwise they are very well done.

    anyone know if they are going to make more characters? especially sprocket? :)

    June 13 I fianlly got my Fraggles. I went to see Garfield at the mall and then after went the Hot Topic. I really didn't know where they were being sold at the time and keep seeing the Hot Topic being said everytime about the Fraggles. So I bought Gobo and Wembly. Since I had waited a long time until I had know they were sold there I didn't get Red. She was already sold out. Boober was there but since I didn't want to spend that much money on 3 Fraggles (12.99) I bought Gobo and Wembly. Sunday I went to the mall again and bought Boober. I'm glad I have 3 Fraggles now. I was happy when I bought and so was the person who cheaked me out at the register she was saying bye to them and saying "have a nice trip guys." I thought it was neat someone else thought the Fraggles were cool. :smirk:

    When I bought mine, the cashier was like "These are so cool, it's hard to let them go!"

    We were in Salt Lake visiting my grandme and unfortunately the local Hot Topic didn't have them. Hopefully, our local one will.

    And I noticed that hottopic.com is selling a few SS shirts ... are these being sold in store as well, or are they just a website thing?

    A tip for those of you who, like me, don't want to get anywhere near a Hot Topic and also cannot find the latest dolls at Suncoast:

    I picked up the Wembley and Boober dolls today at the Borders where I work in Dallas. We also had the Red and Gobo ones, but I decided to hold off. I dunno if this is a common occurance chain-wide, but it's worth a look if you can't find the dolls anywhere else.

    Whats wrong with Hot Topic? Are you affraid of the color black or people with more than one peircing? Its an alternitive lifestyle, you don't need to be apart of it, but don't put it down or be affraid of it! Im a normal clean cut light brown haired guy, I shop at hottopic (fun stuff), it doesn't mean im going to get possesed, nor will you for going into a store! If you go into an over sized clothing store you don't gain weight, if you walk in to a mothers to be store you wont get pregnant! Don't be affraid or put something down if you don't know about it!

    It's against my better judgement, but I'm going to respond to that...

    I have nothing against Hot Topic or the people who shop there. I just don't want to shop there. There is nothing in that store, with the exception of these recently arrived Fraggle dolls, that I would ever consider purchasing. But not even the arrival of these dolls would cause me to wade through the sea of teenagers that I see in my local Hot Topic locations to get one.

    Nothing personal to you or anyone who shops at this store. I just have no desire to shop there. Please don't go looking for connotations within a post that do not exist. Thank you. In fact, I'd be most grateful if the whole topic (which is rather off topic from original topic of the newly arrived dolls; I only responded to clarify the situation for you) is dropped.

    Now, back to topic:

    Wembley and Boober are current occupying spaces on each side of my monitor on my computer desk. :cool: It's curious how the eyes and hair on the Wembley doll makes him look much taller than the Boober doll.

    I actually work at Hot Topic now! LOL...fits me perfectly.

    The coolest thing is, I get 40 percent off on the Fraggles (and everything else they might get in!)

    Oh--and guess what? You know the band Boston?
    They came into Hot Topic tonight when I was working!
    They're playing tomorrow night here in Toledo...
    It was crazy!

    If there's any Boston fans out there, I just wanted to tell you!

    Boston?! :eek:

    As in "More Than a Feeling", Boston? That's so cool. My parents used to have their first album on 8-track (showing my age here) and I listened to it all the time.

    I'm surprised that you recognized them. It's not like they're mainstream anymore. They could probably walk around the mall and not be noticed by one single person. Except you, I guess.

    Did they buy anything at Hot Topic? I would have offered them a Fraggle plush, at 40% off of course.

    LOL...Yeah, the real thing "Boston". I drove by the ampitheatre where they're playing earlier, and all the radio stations' vans were there to cover the concert. I smiled to myself, "Heh...I already met 'em, and I didn't even have to pay."

    The lead singer guy bought a black straightjacket, seriously! He told us he never wears that type of thing and that he wanted to freak out his bandmates etc...I wish I could be there to see him wear it.

    I finally got Boober a cople of weeks ago. He's the coolest one I've seen. I never had a thing for Boober except for Sidebottom. I hope they come out with him.

    A Sidebottom custom wouldn't be too hard to do I would think...
