    Are the Star Wars Muppets still happening? The thread seems to have disappeared, and I'm wondering if we got "No way No how" as an answer.

    Im still wondering about that. I saw all the Star Wars Disney figures at Disneyland in August, and while I dont really collect Disneyana, they sure looked cool.

    I'm thinking that since these are reportedly intended to be in-park exclusives that Disney is taking its sweet time and staggering the release. Could be a month, could be year or could get shelved. I keep checking out action figure magazines - since they showed pictures of the Mickey & gang Star Wars figures last year. I'm certain once the near release they'll be featured in a little blurb. That's what I'm watching for. :search:

    I found it strange too that the thread disappeared right when it is close for release(Spring-the next 3 months from March).Does Muppet Central know something about it being cancelled? They dont seem to have made an appearance at Toy Fair.

    I was just at Disney-MG... I mean, HOLLYWOOD Studios last week. I couldn't find the Muppet figures anywhere, I'm starting to get curious, too.

    It'd be a great idea to actually do these and get them out there. Star Wars satires have become rediculously popular lately. A Spaceballs cartoon (which hopefully was only delayed by the strike), Robot Chicken, Family Guy, and Funimation Dubbing the Crayon Shin-Chan parody for Adult Swim.... It would be great to have an official Dirth Nader figure.

    Caper, you officially rock! :super:

    On the figures- well, it appears to me that they took a look at the Muppet Show Star Wars episode, the Palisades figures and then mixed in a lot of cartoony stylization and artistic license. I can't report being completely thrilled, however I do plan to purchase them.

    For PVCs they are pretty good, but could be better. My favorite is Dirth Nader, hands down! I'm a Gonzo fan and this is the most dynamic of the line up. Next, I'd have to say Kermit. I like the expression that they've given him. It's rather unique and not the usual blankly smiling PacMan-looking PVC Kermit. Beaker is fun. I can't help but think they could have done better, but he's pretty. Rizzo Yoda isn't as good as I would have liked, but he's okay. The same with Fozzie. Piggy fell victim to the usual mistakes they have with her - yellow hair, bunny ears, and eye issues - but at least they didn't put her on a diet. I wanted much more from this figure, but I can't pretend to be surprised. :eek:

    Haha, the Dirth Nader figure is fantastic. I'll buy this set just for that one. Unless they're being sold separately, in which case... I'll still buy all of them. :p

    Not a fan of Piggy's blonde hair or her crazy lined eyes, and the Rizzo/Yoda leaves a lot to be desired, but the other figures are pretty cool. I like Beaker/3-PO a lot. :)

    Wow, the figurines look FABULOUS! I really like Piggy, she looks good here! Gonzo is fantastic. Beaker is surprsingly accurate looking as C3PO.
