Your Top Twelve for 2005

Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by Phillip, Sep 28, 2004.

    Now that Palisades has announced that series 9 will be the last at retail. Travis mentioned in yesterday's bit that at least 12 figures are planned for 2005.

    These we know will be released for sure:

    1. Uncle Deadly (with Muppet Ghost, Muppet Skull and Candelabra)
    2. Scoutmaster Kermit and Blue Frog Scout
    3. Pirate Gonzo and Rizzo
    4. Sal, Penguin and Robin

    These are possible/probable based on rumored completed sculpts:

    5. Muppet Babies Kermit and Piggy
    6. Vet's Hospital Piggy
    7. Vet's Hospital Rowlf
    8. Vet's Hospital Janice

    That leaves four slots from 9-12. How would you fill them for 2005? Even though it's possible we may see more than 12 figures next year, what would your wishlist be if only 12 made it. Post your four choices below.

    It was tough narrowing my choices down to four, but here they are:

    Annie Sue (with Otto the Robot Comedian) I realize that this match up probably doesn't make much sense, but I like the Steel Rabbit and MAMA figures and I think one more robot would be cool.

    Wayne (with Muppy the dog)

    Lewis Kezagger ? (with microphone and the Baseball Diamond from GMC)

    Boppity (with Nigel, Quongo, all six Jug Band members, and JP Grosse) Just kidding (or am I?). No, I really am (or am I?) I think of all of these Boppity would go best with the rest of the collection. He could probably come with the Muppet skeleton that sat on the steps and laughed during Alice Cooper's opening number.

    If we get Muppet Baby Piggy and Kermit we need the other 4. Bean is needed and he's small. I hope he is the figure that comes with the muppet Veggies. 3 of the ones I did and a carrot would be cool. And now that these will be exclusives they can change size of the package for each figure so Bobo as an exclusive would work just fine. So my list of 4 is:

    9. Muppet Baby Gonzo and Scooter
    10. Muppet Baby Fozzie and Rowlf
    11. Bean Bunny
    12. Bobo

    Scout Master Kermit is already on the list for the old series 10 figures. And Travis did say over a dozen so let's say it's 14.

    13. Tutu Pepe
    14. Lewis Kezagger with wigs and maybe Boppity pack in just for the heck of it.

    hoping that the babies don't come out, or come out in retail as a seperate line, cause we don't NEED them...they would be nice in retail as a pick-me-up for the line, but as exclusive...meh...

    so my four

    1. bobo
    2. purple tux floyd
    3. Vac rowfl with brown upright piano
    4. purple tux zoot

    Yeah i could do without the Babies but i felt that if we are getting them we could do with at least another two for a decent display. I wouldn't want 3 out of 4 slots taken up by the Babies. If they were done seperately and i had an extra space to fill in my chosen 4 it'd have to be either a Vacation/Superhero or a pirate for the MTI theme.

    Here are my four

    9. The big Blue Monster (can't think of his name) / pack in: Rat
    10. Beau w/ cheakerd shirt from the GMC
    11. Bobo Bear w Desk and security hat
    12. Semore w/ bellhop get up/ pack in: Pepe w/ bellhop get up

    I would love to see a bunch of old Muppets and new ones come out next year as well as Annie Sue.

    I think you mean YOU don't need them, or rather you don't want them. I do want them and others do want them. And 2 are sculpted and ready to go. Why waste that?

    Remember. Travis said OVER a dozen figures. It could be 13, 15, or 20. All of which are OVER a dozen. It's not just 12.
  10. Bean Bunny

    Bean Bunny Well-Known Member

    Hmm. Let see Bean Bunny, Bean Bunny, and Bean Bunny. Just kidding, ;) :)
    Though I would like to see Bean made before the line ends.

    For those limiting yourselves to exacly 12, this is what Ken said when everyone did the same thing at the Palisades Boards.

    "You guys really make me laugh sometimes....

    Need I remind you, for those who do not REALLY read the text in any Bits or Club spots...

    "We have over a dozen figures that we plan to put out in 2005..."

    That is all..."

    Basically the same thing I said, but I know a lot of you see Ken as God and take his word as law.

    On the first one I meant Thog the big blue monster.
  13. 09. Bobo w/ Beans Bunny
    10. Zoot (resculpt in suit)
    11. Muppet Caper Miss Piggy w/motorcycle
    12. M.T.I. Clueless Morgan
    13. Beaker (individual clamshell like the new Animal Exclusive & Chef from series 9)
    14. Naked Robin

    All I can think of atm.
  14. WiGgY

    WiGgY Well-Known Member

    Naked Robin is a pack in with Sal. If you go to the Palisades web site and click on the daily bit you can see one version of him. There will be 2 naked Robins. One will be sitting and have no articulation at all. That's the one pictures (and he looks pretty darn good, though a bit fat). The other version is a standing version hat will probably have no articulation as well. There is also a steppin' out Tux Robin that will probably have articulation at the neck and shoulders at least. So, Robin is pretty much covered.

    The thread is specifically asking people to list four figures. I dunno, that's why i listed four anyway.
  16. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Isn't it MORE than 12 figures, including some exclusives? Wiggy?
  17. WiGgY

    WiGgY Well-Known Member

    The exct wording used by Travis is "over a dozen" which means over 12 and that includes all figures. I doubt it includes pack in though. Like Rizzo is a pack in and insn't planned to be split from Gonzo so I assume they count as 1 figure and a packin and not 2 figures.

    Basically, jumping to conclusions and preparing for the end is really taking away from enoying the line as it is now so CUT IT OU! :p Prepare for the goodness of Sweetums and the Backstage instead of the end that is a year away.
  18. Stryder Wolfe

    Stryder Wolfe Well-Known Member

    granted this is true...some people want them. Of course I have to post my own opinion about it
  19. WiGgY

    WiGgY Well-Known Member

    Yes. Opinion is fine unless it's stated as fact. "We don't need them" is written as a fact that we as a whole do not need those figures. That's not true. I know it isn't true because I need them for my display. Actually no one needs them, but I want them and you don't. That's all I was saying.
