    Lets see:

    TMM:
    Bartender Fozzie
    Cowboy Kermit with bike and Banjo
    Prince of Plumber Gonzo with statue, camila and balloons.
    Sweetums with Luggage bags?
    "Magic Store" finale playset.

    GMC: Reporter Kermit and Photographer Gonzo are a must!
    Pizza Twins
    Louis Kazager could be introed in this set (or in TMS sets).
    Happiness Hotel playset

    MTM: Two Kermits, one for each plan.
    Roller-skating in the park Piggy.
    Movie Theater Scooter
    The "Muppet Babies" figures from the movie?
    All the individual rats in a Diner playset.

    MCC: Gonzo and Rizzo Narrator set.
    Bunsen and Beaker charity worker set.
    Three Ghosts Set.
    Cratchit Family Set.
    Marley and Marley
    ((Since I see this line being all pairs and tripples, no playset))

    MTI:
    Clueless Morgan
    Mad Monty
    Polly Lobster. ((These three are a MUST))
    Mr Arrow
    Spa'aam (but could they make him after the lawsuit?)
    Blind Pierre
    "Actual Island Location of the movie Muppet Treasure Island" playset with Tourist rats

    MFS: TinFoil Gonzo (removable hat and with the alien egg)
    Robed "Fried" Gonzo with Space Fish, Captain Alphabet cereal and yellow telescope
    Espionage Piggy with MindMist
    Invisibility Spray anyone!
    Bobo as Rentro
    Dr Phil Van Nueter
    Covnet Lab Set with Lab Rats would be awesome!

    And I'm just curious? Does anyone have a list of what is supposed to come out in each of the currently official sets?

    Well done, Tourist Rats are a lovely idea - a 'Rat Tours' pack maybe !

    I agree with your choices. Really thought out. A few I would nix include - Emily Cratchitt Piggy (small part and not very fun Piggy IMHO - maybe in mini) Plunger Gonzo Playset (love the character, not the playset), Beat-Up Gonzo with Tractor and Press Kermit (already have reporter Kermit - close enough). I would like to see Press Fozzie or Press Gonzo in a collapsible hot air balloon (like a Chinese lantern). But I think the GMC versions should mainly be represented in minis.

    Janice has been confirmed for Series 5 (with the bus) by Ken in the Ask Ken thread. Everything is tentative, but I think we can count on it!

    Jamie,

    Chinese lantern idea is great for the balloon--I'd love that!

    And just so you're aware, there are others of us gritting our teeth every time we see "Manhatten" too....

    Gah.

    Gee - why doesn't everyone pick on the guy who doesn't even live in your wacky country and takes the 'U' letters out of most words to make it seem 'normal' to the Americans. I could give you guys some pretty funky Welsh city names and you wouldn't have a hope in he~ll of spelling them - Lllandwellyiangogogoph anyone ? :rolleyes:

    It's just one of my pet peeves - I am a terrible speller myself, but Manhattan is one of the biggest cities and capitals of the world, not an obscure town. It has also been the center of the News for a year. Also with being Muppet fans, it seems that we would know how to spell it by now. It's not like spelling Louis Kazagger. :)

    And I like seeing the extra "U" letters in the posts from you guys.

    Point taken and noted - i shall forever more have a complex about spelling Manhattan - i'll send the therapy bill over ! :p

    LMAO! Maybe I should take a trip to Englund just to make sure! :D

    Technically, Jamie, although Manhattan is a big chunk of New York City, most people refer to New York City or New York, not Manhattan per se....and evidently those people aren't spellers.

    Luke, I didn't realize we were jumping on you--it's just a general pet peeve. I'm glad I'm not on a British website where I'd have to know the difference between cookies and biscuits and crackers...that would drive me mad. And then my face would be coloured red.

    BTW, "Lllandwellyiangogogoph" is my brother's second middle name--Evan Cameron Lllandwellyiangogogoph Rollins.

    Believe you meant capital there Jamie. See how the knife cuts both ways?

    Actually Quinn is right. I know this is all in good fun and understand that, but here in the UK, we hardly ever refer to Manhattan - it's always just New York City. That doesn't give me an excuse though because to the left of my PC is my video shelf with 'Muppets Take Manhattan' in big bold letters.

    I guess i won't be entering any Muppet spelling bee's !

    True - very few people actually use the name, Manhattan. I am surprised they used it for a Muppet film title in the first place, but it sounds more regal than The Muppets Take New York.

    Just to add my 3 cents to the fray...
    I fully support a figure version of Yolanda Rat, with maybe some sort of miniature kitchen utensils like a spatula.
    If possible, I think it would be great to have a Featherstone figure with handheld mirror and Splurge with a radish attached to a rod dangling just out of his reach. Woe to the Fraggle who tries to take his radish away!
    BTW: Grail, neither of your guesses as to the 3 cents were correct. There's 10 nothing-points still available to the first person who gets it right! Maybe if I gave you guys another clue, like turning your focus to Rome, then maybe you'd get it.

    Thunder clashing and Lightning flashing, the Count.

    DictionaryBoy,

    i didn't see it - did the Frogboy spell it as 'Manhatten' ? LMFAO !

    I thought I was the only one doing that! See how cordial we are for you people? ;)

    Quick Luke, let's get some of it out of our system while no one is looking....

    Questions:

    Will Palisades take a cheque for club memberships?

    Are there any plans to release Gonzo in his burgundy coloured suit?

    ;)
