Where did you get your figures?

    I thought I'd start a thread on where we all got each of our figures from.

    I got Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Dr. Teeth, Rowlf, Scooter, Zoot (the repaint), Lew Zeland, Rizzo the Rat, and Sam Arrow at Electronics Boutique.

    I got Kermit and beaker at Toys R Us.

    I got daredevil Gonzo, vacation Fozzie, Animal, Clifford, Statler, Waldorf, vacation Pepe, patrol bear, Johnny Fiama, Sweetums, Lips, and Pops as christmas presents. Most of them were from santa. Some were from my parents, and I think most of the non-exclusives from my parents were from suncoast (Lips and Pops weren't, but I don't know where my parents ordered them from).

    I got Miss Piggy and The Swedish Chef as birthday presents (but I think those were bought at electronics boutique).

    All of the other figures I bought were bought at Suncoast.

    Hmm... its been so long but the most figures that I bought were from Silver Snail Comics in downtown Toronto. The others were from a store in Square One Mississauga called TOYS TOYS TOYS, and then the hard to find ones were purchased on eBay.com

    Hey rexcrk, you wouldn't happen to know if ebgames.com still has the backstage playset would you? I'd check but my home computer is down and my work computer has a block to their site.

    You know what? I read it the same way! I thought it said "fingers," too!
    I thought, "What a silly idea for a thread!"

    Then I read it two more times and realized it said "figures."

    I need glasses. ;)

    I'm sorry... they don't have it any more :(

    I think all they have left is the small set of Series 9 plus some mega Muppets

    Let's see...

    Kermit my sister got for me for my birthday

    Piggy, Dr. Teeth and Bunsen I got at Toys-R-Us

    Jancie I got at Suncoast

    Everyone else I've had to get off E-bay.

    I really wish I had got them all when they first came out (especially Zoot!) but I was unemployed at the time and couldn't afford it. :cry:

    Aside from series 1 Kermit all of mine came from the internet. I think I mostly used Aislesniper, Beanstoys, EB Games, Big Bad Toy Store, KB Toys, and maybe a couple others.

    TRU was the only place that had s1 Kermit and Piggy, so I got them there. I NEVER saw Dr. Teeth, Bunsen, & Muppet Labs at retail, so I picked them up at a comic shop.

    S2 I picked up at Media Play. S3 came to Media Play & EB, so I picked a few from each. EM stage was from Media play.

    Kooze Kerm (classic, repaint) from Target. Culinary Catastrophe Chef was off eBay.

    S4-end & playsets were from Suncoast/Media Play. The only figures I've ordered online have been the Omgcnfo's Sweetums, Classic Deadly, & Penguins and Palisades Direct's Jim. I got Lips and Pops in a trade and they were ordered online. I picked up the silver Lips variant, Tux Foz, & Chef at EB. I also picked up the backstage from Entertainment Earth.

    Mostly at Media Play and Suncoast (while they still carried them). I picked up two or three at Toys R Us (S3 Gonzo and Fozzie, I think; and then later Johnny Fiama and a clearance-priced Capt. Smollett).

    When Media Play-Suncoast (they're owned by the same company, for those who don't know) dropped the Muppets, I was forced to go to the EB Games store in Opry Mills (a mall I HATE, but I'm lucky it was there, I know), the only EB Games in town that carried the figures. The backstage playset I ordered from EB Games online; online exclusives I bought at their respective sites (not E-Bay).

    Floyd I bought late from KillerToys.com, when he had vanished from physical stores and I realized how foolish I'd been to not buy him already. The same thing happened with the Animal-Electric Mayhem playset, but I ordered it from BigBadToystore.com.
