What Pig preference do you have?

    Ok, so we now know the great news, our beloved Muppet replica line is carrying on!:D
    I thought that this would be a good place to argue and voice our opinions to which Piggy and more importantly which hair style you are hoping they go for and which ears they go for.
    I for one love her like this

    If someone wants to start a poll then please scrap this thread

    hubby and i were discussing this.. and decided that we could deal with pretty much any of them except that awkward season 1 or bad perm piggy.. any of the others we would be just fine with...would be nice if she had stylable hair, and it would be really really cool (so says hubby) if they could do removable wig options for her.. and of course, a little wardrobe collection....maybe in a little steamer trunk...
    depending of course on how much they want to invest in her details and "extras"

    Personally, I would prefer something closer to this but would be okay with something like this. I'm not a fan of the white-blonde or short-flat-bangs look. To me, classic Piggy looks closer to this or this but not this and certainly not this.

    As always Jamie, you are right on the money. The last 2 examples of Piggy are horendous:eek:

    I really was trying to find the ugliest Piggy out there. I think the last one (French Muppets TV version) wins...or loses as the case may be. I really haven't been thrilled with many of the Piggys in recent years. There was one they used in some of the last Christmas special that was okay, but there was also a B version (like with Fozzie) that they used in some shots that didn't look too good.

    I really hope this Piggy Poser isn't just a modern Piggy with some classic purple gloves. They should go for iconic.

    Agreed, the iconic look would please the masses.
    :eek: to the bad Piggy pic you posted.

    I wholeheartedly 100% agree (again). I suspect the majority of the people who will buy these posers are likely to be from the Muppet Show era and movies to have the desposable income required to buy these. IMHO, it would be a huge mistake on Disneys part to go with the newer-look pig as they would alienate a significant portion of the buyers!:attitude:

    I also 100% agree. The newer Miss Piggy's just dont quite have that look, I fully agree with you Anthony that the picture you used of Piggy is great, the look, the hair, the ears and even the pink dress is perfect, I love that piccy.

    I hope she doesnt look like this Piggy which I recently discovered on youtube, I have not seen this puppet used in anything else, I dont think, she looks like her face has been put in a vice!

    LOL, made by the people who are doing these posers! Thankfully that was their first go though and have got a gazillion times better since.

    Gotta agree with you .. in that one she is a HOG!

    Hey everyone, my names Taylor and ive been reading the posts here for several years. I own kermit and gonzo and plan to get animal asap. I am very excited about the line continuing and am extremely excited about piggy. fozzie and piggy are equally important to me so i dont mind waiting for fozzie and getting piggy in the meantime.
    As for piggys look EFX should definitly go the classic route. I cant stand the new straight haired piggy or her clothing. How about a piggy from a simpler time, one with curly blonde hair a dress and purple gloves. it seems most people on here agree with me but i suppose we will have to see what most people prefer and what efx decide on.

    I think if efx and disney would go with the piggy on muppets.com, NOT the one in the videos, but the one on the left side which is a pic of her above a piggy quote, the dress she's in, her hair, I think many people would like that. Any thoughts?

    i definitely agree. the first picture looks quite odd though. i dont know whats up with her face in that one. and i'd be okay with that second one or that third one. i remember when everyone first say that second picture of miss piggy, we couldnt stop talking about how gorgeous she looks, which she does.
  19. frogboy4

    That first picture is classic Muppet Show Piggy right after her first good makeover. They'll never use that one, but I don't see anything odd about it. Many fans remeber her that way and she did appear on magazine covers as such, but most hardcore fans believe THIS to be the best representational era of all the characters.

    That's the hair I'd like on Piggy instead of that platinum straight hair wig with the short ugly bangs that has become her classic look today. I know they use that because it's easier to keep the style. It's just not that level of glamour she deserves. Still, if they go modern THIS is the best way to go. Too many of the modern Puppet Heap Piggys look odd to me and have dead-looking eyes.

    I hear that's getting better. The pig is tough. ;)

    i dont mind the newer piggy with the nags, but it just doesnt suit her at all, and as frogboy said, she deserves better. i also agree that if they go modern, they should loose the dead eyes and use the curly hair.
