    You know, I am a huge fan of the Teeth, Mahna Mahna, and Snowths ones like everyone else, but I really think that the Miss Piggy is just adorable. I mean I'm not even a huge Piggy fan but this figure is freakin' cute! :flirt:

    Toys R Us?
    Target? I dunno, what kind of stores sell these?
    I wish they were on Disney Movie Rewards, I would get them through there

    I did find other non-Muppet Funko figures at an out-of-town Barnes and Noble, so if anyone is looking for them, there might be a good place to look.

    Curious if anyone ordered the Wacky Wobblers? Also, if I order from Amazon through the link then Muppet Central gets the proceeds, want to make sure I get it right.

    Does anybody know why they give them black eyes like that? I'm not really digging that to much. I'm glad to see Kermit's eyes are normal and Mahna Mahna and the Snowth look good but the others just look freaky with black eyes!! I still might buy Dr. Teeth though.... He's the man! :D

    I think they could more better with :):o:concern::mad::halo::D because I would get all of them but the details could be more better with the Eyes and the shape of Kermit's, Fozzie,and Gonzo heads.
    why did they make their heads square but the details on Mahna Mahna and the two Snowths are better than the rest. To me they looked like you rushed and didn't pay attention on what you were doing. sorry....

    but they could at least added more details to the others a little more.:sympathy::o:concern:;)

    That is the style of the figure. Funko makes all sorts of different pop culture characters in that style. It's no Palisades, but it is pretty cool!

    I didn't make them. I'm not sure if Funko will make more.

    I was the first to vote for Gonzo. I just really like that figure altogether. His suit is just perfect, those strands of hear on his head, the color and texture of his fur...it's just an all around brilliant figure.

    Other things I like that are worth noting:
    *There's nothing not to love on Fozzie. He's just plain perfect as well. His tie, fur, hat, everything.
    *I love the effort made to get Dr. Teeth's clothing right.
    *I like Miss Piggy's red dress. Miss Piggy is one of the characters that never really wear a certain thing all the time, so it's always a challenge to dress her in merchandise. But this is a great job on Funko and Disney's part.
    *Though there were some coloring issues (as I'll say below), much of the coloring was terrific. I really appreciate that they did a good job on more obscure characters for merch, such as Dr. Teeth, Mahna Mahna, and the Snowths.
    *The fact that Mahna Mahna and the Snowths are available is beyond me.
    *Once again, I have to say that Gonzo's suit is done perfectly. The fact that they put him in the purple suit is great, too. At least, better than the chili pepper tie.
    *Rather than giving Kermit all black eyes, they gave him his trademark eyes.

    But those of you who know me know that when it comes to Muppet merch, I'm very nitpicky. So here's my nitpicks on the figures:

    *Though I love the Gonzo figure, he's too big. The Gonzo puppet is one of the smaller Muppets, yet compared to the other figures, Gonzo's one of the largest. He should be more about Kermit's size instead, while characters such as Fozzie and Dr. Teeth should be larger.
    *Coloring: Dr. Teeth's skin should be a tad darker...his is the same color as Kermit's on the figure. Gonzo's nose should be a bit bluer, rather than purpler. Mahna Mahna's skin should be purple, rather than a dark pink. Mahna Mahna's fur should be a darker green.
    *I don't like how Mahna Mahna and the Snowths look like they're wearing clothes rather than having fur. A build more like Dr. Teeth would've worked better for them.
    *Animal's eyes aren't working for me. I don't have a problem with the characters having black eyes, as that is the Funko style, but Animal's don't look right like that, as he already has black eyebrows.
    *Animal's feet make him hard to stand up.
    *Fozzie's name is spelled wrong on the one side of his box.

    But all in all, I love these. I hope they make more.

    I voted for Dr. Teeth, but at the time, I only had him, Mahna Mahna, and a Snowth. I wish I could change my vote to Gonzo. He is my favorite character out of the whole set!

    Don't worry...we'll just visually take a vote from Dr. Teeth and put it on Gonzo in our heads... :concern:
