Your Ideas for Muppets Movie Figures

    Hey guys,
    Now I know this seems like I'm copying off of James' new thread, and I kind of am, but this thread is specifically for movie related figures. Since there is no doubt in my mind that Palisades' Muppet Show line will do well, and that they will be granted the rights to movie action figures. Some of these ideas I've posted in the past. The list includes some reissued figures (mostly in the Muppet Movie sets) so that those who are just starting could have a close to complete set of characters. The backdrop pieces I list as accessories are from the final scene in the Muppet Movie where they put up the backdrop for their "movie". The six pieces would link to form a completed "set". Note: each set piece would be included with a reissued figure, so you only have to rebuy the figures if you want the set piece. Also, unless a figure says (reissue), assume it's a new sculpt.

    Here's my list:

    The Muppet Movie- Wave 1
    Piggy in Pageant Outfit
    Swedish Chef (reissue) w/ projector and backdrop piece #1

    My thoughts

    I feel that the Muppet Movie series should be somewhat more abreviated because most of the figures have already been released. I also hope Pepe comes before any of the movie figures. This is a general idea of what I think deserve rentirely new sculpts and sets. Some things have been left out, but it may be unrealistic to have every scene represented.

    The Muppet Movie:
    Kermit with banjo in Swamp
    Piggy in boat with parasol (crown included)
    Fozzie in Studabaker
    Gonzo with balloons
    Giant Animal with lab
    Dr Teeth on the Bus
    Janice in the old church

    The Great Muppet Caper:
    Kermit with reporter outfit & hotair balloon
    Piggy with motorcycle
    Fozzie with reporter outfit
    Gonzo with reporter outfit
    Beauregard with Taxi
    Pop's with Happiness hotel
    Rizzo as bellhop

    The Muppets Take Manhattan
    Kermit in tux with chappel
    Piggy in bridal Gown
    Fozzie in show clothes with stage
    Gonzo in show clothes
    Scooter in usher clothes
    Rizzo with kitchen set
    (Possibly some Muppet Babies)

    Muppet Christmas Carol:
    Cratchit Kermit with Robin
    Cratchit Piggy
    Dickens Gonzo with Rizzo
    Marley Statler
    Marley Waldorf
    Bean Bunny

    Muppet Treasure Island
    Smollet Kermit with ship
    Benjamena Piggy with island
    Fozzie with treasure
    Gonzo with Rizzo
    Clueless with Polly
    Sam with lifeboat
    Spa’am with vacation rats

    Muppets From Space
    Kermit with boarding house
    Piggy with UFO set
    Gonzo with spaceship
    Pepe!!! (with rizzo)
    Bobo with raygun
    Van Neuter with table
    Clifford (felt I had to get him in somwhere)

    These are just my ideas because I see the movie line as a suppliment for the regular figures.

    Jamie + Artie,

    I think that we might be seeing a Muppet Babies figure line soon, Because Ken was trying to get the rights for them.

    But i personally would like to see a Fraggle Rock line first.

    And if they are going to make a Muppet Babies line then i hope they are based on the Muppets Take Manhattan Babies, and not the Cartoon.
    But then again, If they based it on the cartoon we could probably get Baby Bean, Baby Janie, Baby Skeeter and Baby Robin !

    See ya

    The GIANT Animal could actually be a modern puppet for sale (better than the one you find on EBay) to be purchased seperately from the set. The lab could be Bunsen, Beaker, and the giant prune!

    I like giant prunes, but not giant prudes.

    About the Muppet Babies

    I really hope that nothing more is done with the Muppet Babies. They really took over the Muppets' identity the second half of the 80s' and they were only a tiny part of The Muppets Take Manhattan. Fraggle Rock really is the way to go IMHO!

    Yeah, Muppet Babies took away the Muppet Image as we know it, evidenced by the fact that many people refer to them AS the Muppets instead of TMS.

    Kinda like most kids didn't know that Leonardo, Michaelangelo and a few others were artists, not turtles.

    That irks me.

    Wait, not only were they crime fighting ninjas, but they were artists too?

    How radical is that?

    I'd prefer Fraggle figures over Muppet Babie figures as well. Alot of Muppet Babies merchandise was already made It also bothers me that many people don't know the difference between the Muppets and Muppet Babies. Also just like how some people don't know the difference between the Muppets and Sesame Street.

    ...or the difference between Muppets and Disney...

    ...or the difference between Muffins and Envelopes...

    The 80's are back.

    With the recent success of the return of G.I. JOE, He-Man, and Transfomrers, a Muppet Babies line would be a great idea plus there that whole pre-school market .

    There are two of your suggestions that really got me:
    Bobo as Rentro
    Pops with Happiness Hotel.

    Bobo as Rentro with- talking sandwich,really big gun,"Are you there"photos & Cosmic Fish #1 & #2.

    Pops playset, stuff in it- Taxi smashed through wall, Janice's beach cair,
    bonus Gaffer and accercories galore.

    - :)
