    I actually got really lucky with my Red Shirt Zoot and got him for only 60 bucks. I'm trying to get a complete collection which is going to cost a ton of money and probably won't happen anytime soon.

    Post some pics of your collection karamazov....
    i bet I'm not the only one wanting to see your goods!
    BTW....I'm a fellow Baton Rouge Muppet collector...I just moved back to town from Orlando, Florida...On April first...the day I moved...I owned 1 figure....a going away gift from a friend in Orlando...Sweetums....
    I now own over 75 figures...Since we are renting...i haven't set them all up...but...I have big plans....
    I'll share what I have set up right now...
    But...I'm still filling a few holes....Holiday Kermit, White Rowlf, one of the Exclusive Animals (not Palisades), gold Gonzo...and another Checkered Gonzo with the accessories...Classic Swedish Chef, Rainbow Connection Kermit, Backstage Playset and the Minimuppets....not bad....if I must say so myself...
    i recently acquired the Dr. Teeth exclusive in a trade for my loose Henson...so I'll need to reaquire him....but then I'll have a little money to play with....

    Cool stuff! I actually lived in Gonzales for awhile, off of Black Bayou Road, if you know where that is, before moving to Baton Rouge for grad school. I'll try to take some pics of my collection soon and post them. My collection isn't as impressive as yours, but minus a very few stragglers (single carded Swedish Chef, Pops, and a couple others) I've got all that I want, so it's good enough for me. I just wish that the Muppets were my only toy habit. My GI Joes, Minimates, and Kubricks are a real force to be reckoned with.

    Well ... I still need a Zoot; any version will do ... :cool:

    And no, I don't want to shell out a couple hundreds of bucks either ... :eek:

    hah same, I may some day have to go there but I believe by that point Zoots will stop going for tuns of money because most of the people who want them will have them.:D
    Same goes for lips, I'll just wait for the ones I need.

    Yeah, I'm kinda hoping that too. I set myself a max price I want to spend on a collectible and then stick to it. So far, given enough patience, that has never let me down, so ... I can wait some more for this little guy too.

    Zoot is certainly much cheaper now than he was this time last year. . .so, you may be on to something.

    I bought Zoot in a store in Costa Rica for $15. It is the yellow one.


    There were three of them. I would have bought the 3 and sold two if I just knew what it was worth.

    I have both Zoots but they are both open. I like to display my figures.

    :) You're lucky. I'm still looking for a cheap Zoot (tan) & Lips figures on eBay. I got loose Dr. Teeth & Janice (pink) figures for $12 each and a MOC Floyd (red) for $13 plus $4 shipping. I also got the Electric Mayhem playset for $35 total (including shipping) :wisdom: It takes a lot of patience to complete a collection.

    Actually, I got Dr. Teeth and Janice :flirt:in the same store, brand new for $15 each. Floyd :sing:I had to buy him at Amazon for $36, and my wife gave me the Mayhem stage for my birthdate, without Animal, though. I had already bought Animal i:halo:n the same store in Costa Rica for $16. I am still getting Lips and the always-impossible backstage.

    Congratulations on the Lips Silver Variant & Lew Zealand figure. You've just outbid me on the same items. That seller offers combined shipping discount (just in case you haven't checked), I bought from him before.

    Thank you!

    I'm sorry I outbid you, but certainly I am happy to have gotten Lew so cheap compared to all the others I have seen. With Lips I have completed my Electrical Mayhem at last.
    I have recently ordered my missing ones: Robin, Beauregard, Fiama, and Van Neuter. The only item I am still fighting for is the Backstage.

    I got those figures MOC on eBay too for less than $10 each. You just got to be patient. BTW I saw 5 Backstage playsets on eBay just search for Rowlf on the toys & hobbies category. 3 of them were in the $210+, 1 was $275 & another $300+

    I didnt realize Lew was such a hot commodity. I have one of those.

    I'm glad to see the collectors are still out there and the demand is somewhat steady. my wife and i have plenty of figures opened, but we also have a lot still MOC and some playsets and con exclusives are all still in their boxes. i don't know if we want to sell the collection, but i guess it's worth looking into...

    we've still got one shop in the area that carries them at near "original" prices... just found an Uncle Deadly there that hubby'd wanted.. we like going in and seeing what's still there.. thinking about going in and buying up the lot one of these days....we've got most of em for ourselves..
