I would like the Muppet Theater and the Muppet name!
Uh oh! Looks like we have a Tex Richman in our midst!
...oh yeah, and an evil puppet henchman with an English accent!
A fully animatronic and interactive Rowlf. Jam packed with sensors. Touch sensors, light sensors, sound sensors, motion detectors, the whole nine yards. It would be able to respond when you spoke to it and would have special responses for several key phrases. The motion sensors would allow it to know when someone is near and respond accordingly. It would also have an internal sensor that would enable it to know when it is being moved and make comments. Touch sensors would be placed throughout the body so that it would know when it is being touched, having it's hand squeezed or hugged.
If my dream of learning to build and design robotic toys ever comes true, one of the first things I'd like to do is get the Muppets license and make a whole range of animatronic and interactive Muppets characters.
Can I change my mind...I want that!
And when you place him at a piano, he starts to sing and play all his songs.
Are you kidding? With an actual Muppet fan owning the theater and name the characters would never disappear period!
Pretty good idea, though I'm not quite sure how it'd be done. You'd have to have his arms move which might drive the cost up a bit. Probably not a whole lot though as there was at least one FurReal robot dog with front legs that moved and it didn't run more than $60. Plus that Elmo Live thing also had moving arms and it didn't cost much more than that. You'd also have to have a sensor in the toy and the piano that would allow the toy to recognize it and activate the required response. Judging by some of the other robot toys I've seen and the price of them you could probably get a decent interactive Rowlf ( or any other muppet ) for about $100.
I'd love to have a signed photo of Mr. Jim Henson - my 2nd greatest hero next to my Big Brother Robbie who is now my Guardian Angel, a MTM screen-used Rowlf (from the dog kennel scene), a TMM screen-used Dr. Teeth and Kermit w/Banjo, a screen-used Sprocket from the final episode, brand new built OFFICIAL Scooter, Fozzie, and Elmo Muppets for my Son (his favorites), all the unreleased Palisades figures (Muppets, Sesame Street, and Fraggle Rock), posers of all my favorite Muppets from every branch of the Muppet Family Tree, Gonzo's plumbing truck from TMM, and blu-rays of every Muppet EVERYTHING with gads and gads of extras.
I'm sure there's more, but from that list I'd settle for, well, okay, I really want everything listed, lol.
an electric mayhem on tour tshirt and poster
1)A Muppet Theater Backstage resin diorama, featuring Kermit and Scooter.
2) A Sir Didymus statue with him riding Ambrosius. Plan B ought to make a second line of Labyrinth statues that includes the 4 main heroes.
3) A Pigs in Space spaceship Hallmark ornament. This sounds like something Hallmark would make, but I don't think they've made it yet. They make a lot of vehicle ornaments like the Millenium Falcon and Ecto-1.
Extremely accurate photo puppets of Rowlf, Scooter, The Electric Mayhem, and anyone else in TMS. Also, a few Fraggles would be nice. Photo puppets are like the coolest things ever, if only their were more of them.
Many things! Right now though I'd settle for being able to get a Master Replica Kermit. I keep seeing them on ebay, but some sellers just sell to the US. Why wont you allow postage to Australia? Was a bummer what happened with eFX I would have just purchased Kermit from them and took his hat and coat off.
If I could have more the next choice would be Fozzie and Pepe Photo Puppets too.
Oh and whilst not a 'Muppet' would think it would be great to have the Thought Lion as shown in 'The True Bride' episode of The Storyteller and which also regularly appeared alongside Jim Henson on The Jim Henson Hour. Oh and the Ludo (from Labyrinth) costume!
I want an EFX/Master Replicas perfect poser of Uncle Deadly.
Heck, I'd be excessively happy with a medium sized decent looking Uncle Deadly plush.
Com'on Disney, add Uncle Deadly to your assortment of Villians merchandise, please?
i would want the fozzie replica that never came out looking at the prototype for so long has become tease
interested how much
Make me an offer. 0
Ooh, lots of ways to stretch my mind here...
-All Palisades Muppets figures
-All Muppet Busts
-The actual puppets of Beaker, Swedish Chef, Dr. Teeth, Beauregard, Lew Zealand, Gonzo, Kermit, Fozzie, etc.
I would really just like the Dr. Teeth Palisades bust.
...but it would sing "Can You Picture That" whenever I walked by.
My dream collectibles would be poser replicas of:
Kermit in host flail pose
Miss Piggy in her Saltine get-up from "It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie"
Miss Piggy in her waitress uniform from "Muppets Take Manhattan"
Kermit & Miss Piggy in their wedding outfits from "Muppets Take Manhattan"
Rowlf & Fozzie with the piano from the "I've Got Rythm" sketch
Mahnah Mahnah & The Two Snowths
And a bunch of other stuff I haven't even thought of yet XD
