    Oh, it was a legal issue that kept you from making Muppetopoly. I understand. Though you made a cool suggestion for a Bear On Patrol Fozzie for the jail. I can see some customizing being done by some people. I know that if I get the game, I'll put my BOP Fozzie right next to that corner (That is whenever I get him since he isn't out yet). Has anyone tried using any of the Palisades figures on a game board as pieces yet? That would certainly be cool for display purposes.

    About the Rowlf thing on the box, I don't know what is up with JHC. They make some really weird decisions. Sometimes I think they do it to purposly mess products up or something. Like what was mentioned with yellow Lew Zealand. I can't understand why they made Rowlf so smale, unless they did it based on character importance or something. And the picture on the board looks nice. Better than the one seen all over the place. Sam looks odd though. Too bad Henson didn't add Fozzie or even Scooter in his place.

    In all it looks like a great game, and I could use some version of monopoly in my house, even though all board games create huge fights. :D

    Re: Guys,

    You have that? I think I'll sneak over to yours and steal it. Hm...

    Yeah, in a way Piggy appeared at MF. Animal appeared in TMS Live at the Fest, and Sam was singing in the background for a couple of numbers that same night. Fozzie didn't appear except in a clip from the Edgar Bergen episode. Also the puppet was used onstage for lipsynching during the "You're the Puppeteer" presentation, but that was a last-minute addition. So in terms of being a picture for MF, that image was fairly accurate. It's a shame he's not there for the Monopoly picture since Pepe was added. But at any rate, with or without Fozzie, I think it's a really nice image, and Fozzie does appear prominently on the box cover at least. And I agree with you that I'm glad they didn't use that ugly, overused image from the Muppet CD, etc., etc. Fozzie with a blue bandanna? Hello?

    BlueFrackle, can you scan us the image with Fozzie and the chickens, etc. and put it up on your website or something? I'd like to see that.

    Oooh, they did a fantastic job! Why is it I don't remember that picture. Don't think I cut that one. If I did, I'm such a goof. LOL!

    Does anyone know what the name of the person behind bars is? I heard today that he is called Jake the Jailbird!!! (pity they couldn't put a bunch of monsters in there, and Patrol Man bear in the policeman place.

    I rarely win - on occasion I will - but my wife gets mad at me if I make to much of an effort. Thinks it will scar young minds if we don't let 'em win most of the time.

    Yes, it is very fun - Monopolyguy and his cronies did a good job...

    Hi Monopolyguy I have a question.....

    Do you know if ToysRus is going to be selling it?

    I have a feeling they won't be but I figured I would ask any way. I have a gift certificate from there and figured I would put it to good use.

    Plus I just wanted to compliment you and everyone that worked on this game. It looks outstanding!:excited: I would love to do design work on something that fun. So I am slightly jealous.

    Keep up the great work!

    Heather Feather, I know for a fact that Toys R Us won't be carrying it. Our games are typically sold just through specialty stores, places like Barnes & Noble and Virgin Entertainment.

    Thanks to everyone for their compliments on the game! I'm SO excited for this game to show up in the hands of fans like all of you and I'm anxious to hear your comments after playing it! :)

    Monopoly on order

    I found the Muppet Monopoly idea awesome and Dad has already ordered it for me for my birthday. I can't wait. he's afraid I shouldn't open it though...collector's item and all. What does everyone think?:concern:

    Chilly Down Well-Known Member

    Kermielovah, remember "Toy Story 2." Toys and games are meant to be played with. Do you really want to look back on all those "fond years" of staring at a box you couldn't open? And whether or not something will become valuable is always impossible to gauge. I have a bunch of Star Wars figures that I bought and never opened, figuring their value would skyrocket. They're worth maybe a couple of dollars more than when I bought them. Do you want to deprive yourself of playing the game for something that might only increase slightly in value?

    I'm not picking on you. I'm just saying: open your game and have fun. :excited: If you're really that interested in trying to make money off of it at some point in the future, ask another relative to buy you the same game, and you can keep that one preserved for all time.

    Hope that helps. Happy playing, and let us know what you think of it!

    Chilly Down,
    You are right, I can't wait to play. I need someone to play with me. I already thought about duping someone else into buying it for me. Making my list of candidates now...
