Why You Need To Go To Hot Topic NOW

    Yeah yeah "those employees scare me", "I dont know, whats with all the freaks". blah blah.

    Bottom line, get your muppet lovin tush over to Hot Topic ASAP.
    I can think of no other place better for JHC fans than here. They just got in a bunch of new Sesame stuff(and no, not baby stuff like at Toys R US) and a tonnnn of Muppet Show stuff...like the bigger Beaker plush and other stuff. This seems to be the only place where ya can find Nanco plushes of course. But yeah, everything from shoelaces, socks and stickers to all sorts of other Muppet *and* Sesame goodies, as well as the occational Fraggle Rock and DC/Labyrinth thing.
    Heck, they even have a bunch of new Muppet pins in, Pepe! And th ehsirts, oh my...Ive gotten several Beaker, Electric Mayhem, and other shirts there.

    funniest thing, a Kermit gift card that says "this palce scares me" lol

    Yeah ... what is it with all those pierced and tatooed employees? I always find it kinda odd, but oh well...

    Anyway, thanks for the update!

    ...it's been a while since I've been there...I should really do a driveby.

    WAS hoping someone would get the hint for my birthday or father's day, but Miles is too little, and Melissa wanted me to get a grill.


    THAT'S what that Gobo face is for!

    Maybe they dress that way because it's a store uniform.

    Gee ... what's un-muppety about Hot Topic and the way the employees dress?

    Muppets are punk rock. Remember: "He's a rebel L ... he goes "La La La" from Sesame Street?

    And Animal ... he wears a studded punk-rock collar! Heck, I'm sure the Electric Mayhem would respect non-conformity.

    Why do people think I want to start an argument?

    You need to use more smileys in you posts. :p
    But that's not really your style, is it?

    Back to the topic, hottopic that is, I just saw the coolest John Cusak t-shirt at hottopic.com. oooooooo, John Cusak.

    Actually Harry, I didn't think you were trying to start a fight. My post was as much to you as it was the Trekkie. It was just a general reminder: Muppets are punk rock.

    And so is Pac Man, evidentially, because at Hot Topic I saw the most incredible pair of bright blue Pac Man wrist "sweat bands" from my worst 80's nightmares. I loved them ... I'm making a friend buy them for me so I can whip them out at my wedding reception. "Something old; something new; something borrowed; something blue."

    The only problem I have with Hot Topic is the fact there are no good ones near me. And the website doesn't carry half the fun gear the stores do.

    I thought it was pretty cool too. But ya know what, they say it's a picture of him from 16 Candles, but I don't think it is. (Regardless, I'm very glad that they're offering that shirt though!)
    I wish there were Hot Topic stores in Toronto!

    It is a picture from 16 Candles, I recognize it. And I hope they have ti at the store near me too because I hate buying things when I'm not able to try them on.

    I was at Hot Topic this afternoon and as I stood deciding between the John Cusak shirt and a Fraggle Rock one I had not seen their before, I saw a black tank top with the worm guy(name?...I don't think I've ever know it if he has one) from Labyrinth and the caption "I said 'ello" . Anyway, I was very pleased with the find as it was the only one I could find anywhere in the store and I'd never seen it there before or on the website. Another new thing I found was a Statler and Waldorf patch that was very cool as well :boo: :sleep: :)

    We need Hot Topic here in Australia, Wish We did! We have no good shops like that, Electronics Boutique is the only store round here that stocks muppet stuff apart from the DVD stores that stock the 3 measly muppet DVDS available here!

    Hey, is there any merch from that Muppet anime kingdom show "Bamba'something, that stars Joe the Armadillo from Kermit Swamp Years?(See folks, I keep up on my international Muppet news)

    To beaker et al... If you plan to travel to New England or Live in the New England area, you really should try Newburry Comics.... they have boat loads of Muppet stuff, along with Simpsons, 80's style toys, a whole bunch of Cd's new and used, and even a few Japanese toys... you know from Japan....Even Japanese Transformers stuff...

    I think you are talking about "Bambaloo" I never realised it was Henson production til a few months ago. I dont think there is any merchandise available at all yet, I could be wrong. I dont think the show even went that well and im not sure if it is still even on, im not usually home at that time so cant be sure but I did look in the tv guide and cant find it there.
