    Same....i like that puppet! i would hate to have a MR that look like this:http://images.wikia.com/muppet/images/4/4f/Shot.nickjesvar.jpg

    I even liked the version from GMA:

    But i was just wondering, Why does Everyone think Piggy looked her best on GMC? I thought she was great on IAVMMCM.

    Brown hair piggy looks as cheap as Ashanti.

    I respect that they are mixing all the years into one and look forward to seeing what they come up with.

    There's nothing like vintage pork, in my opinion. Who is with me?

    Piggy in her golden years...

    Caper or GMC Piggy are both great in my opinion, or simply go with Calander Girl Piggy from her calanders. Although I also like her new style..although not her hair.

    Hi Guys,

    I must admit I prefer the older late 70's early 80's look. However some of the newer Piggys also look great. I liked her with Sharon Osbourne last year on TV here in the UK but cant find a piccy at the mo, she had long hair which curled a bot at the bottom, more like the older style, I dont like the Jennifer Anniston straight hair look?

    On her clothes, I believe it is a known fact that every woman should own at least one Black dress in their wardrobe.
    I would like to see her in a classic, sexy, smart Black velvet dress, like the one she wore in the ''Mad About The Frog'' number while lying on Rowlfs piano. None of these modern casual outfits she has been seen in recently.

    I agree the feather dress from GMC is a great outfit and she looks great, but it is a bit dated, a black dress will not age, its just classic!

    Black dress...

    Agreed. But velvet or felt will collect lint and dirt. Better make it satin. I wouldn't mind seeing her in a dark purple though.

    OK Now I'm getting Passionate

    I agree with the concept of the Great Muppet Caper / Fantastic Miss Piggy Show or even an season 2 - 5 in a traditional costume like we have seen with Animal and Gonzo, but...

    Please, Please, Please no bunny ears, ok, I understand that she has evolved over the years, all us girls have had the odd nip and tuck, myself included. But the ears as they are now right on top of the head, just do her any justice frankly they look a little odd and we don’t want her looking like the catwoman who had too much plastic surgery.

    I found this fan site on google with some great piggy poses this is how I am used to seeing her and would love to own my own version of her.

    She is my favourite, so they better get her right. Oh and did I mention no BUNNY EARS!

    Oooh, I think you misunderstood me :o I was talking about my particular distaste for the Barbie-like cartoon representation the Henson Company put out of Piggy in merchandise under their control. I'm a classic Piggy guy, although I do like some of the new Piggys. I still much prefer her in the early 80s. Here's a picture illustrating the Piggys I like and don't. For better or worse we're stuck with the "bunny ears" on Piggy. I like them folded more on the top, but she hasn't appeared that way for so long that I doubt she will again.

    Piggy had a brief bit on Bruce Forsythe's birthday TV special on BBC1 in the UK over the weekend and I must say, the new Piggy puppet looks so much better than the one they were using on other recent appearances. Even her hair seems to resemble how it looked during The Muppet Show years.

    Great Muppet Caper and towards the end of the Muppet show is my favorite Miss Piggy also. That's what I'd like to see her look like.

    As long as she isn't too pale and her hair isn't straight or short (or bleached blonde), I'll be happy.

    I agree with this statement, I think most casual Muppet fans don't care much for Piggy...myself included. I think Beaker and the Swedish Chef are much more popular among casual fans, but that's just my opinion. I personally would never buy a Piggy.

    Supercali... your statement seems rather naive. Miss Piggy is beloved by casual muppet fans as well as the hardcores.

    Frogboy - I like your picks and agree in both categories.

    Amen uppitymuppity, AMEN! She is my favorite and CAN NOT wait to have my Piggy Poser!:) :mad:

    I beg to differ and can back with financials - There ain't no good time for the Swine other than breakfast and easter.

    Personally - I would rather have Link over Piggy - and Floyd over both of 'em:sing:

    It is true that Piggy memorabilia (unless you are talking calendars of course) sells very poorly in comparison to Kermit, Animal, Gonzo and the other main characters. I'm not sure if that trend will continue with a line like this tho. As long as the MR Piggy is authentic looking and has many of her original qualities, I can see it being quite a big seller. Also, price will play a big part on the success of this one. People will quite happily fork out more for the Fozzie replica than the Piggy one I would have thought.

    Well, I don't know the financials but, you have to admit she is a central character and to leave her out of this lineup would be insane. Mistersuperstar is right - this is different than cheap toys on any toystore shelf. Different market.

    Also, i'd do Rowlf before Floyd and Link. Wasn't Rowlf the first true star of the muppets? I mean, he & Kermit are the embodiment of Jim Henson in my opinion.:sympathy::)
