Authentic Kermit replica in development

Master Replicas is planning to release a posable Kermit in 2006 with potentially other main characters to follow

By Greg James

Here is the first Master Replica prototype of Kermit the Frog. Kermit will undoubtedly go through many changes before production begins in 2006.
Master Replicas Inc. an industry leader in movie and television prop replicas will soon be offering authentic display Muppets.

In November 2004, Master Replicas acquired the license to create Disney replicas - from Cinderella's Glass Slipper and Mouseketeer ears, to props from Pirates of the Caribbean and the Rocketeer. Now, being shown to the public for the first time ever, is Master Replicas newest addition to their Disney licensed replicas collection: Kermit the Frog.

Kermit will be a top-notch and high-priced display replica of the world’s most famous Frog – it will be the closest you can get to owning a real Muppet. Kermit is the first "studio scale" Muppet replica. The product has been copied directly from the original cut patterns, materials and stitch patterns. He will be fully posable and a gem of any fan’s collection. Master Replicas says “If Kermit does well, there might be others... "

With an extremely experienced executive team, Master has produced great collector’s times from Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia, Predator, and many other classic works. Master Replicas produces officially licensed products with extreme attention to product authenticity, detail, product quality, and customer service.
