If there are any left once StarWarsShop comes back online, I'm down for one too.  I have always liked the Muppet line, and although I have been unable to collect it, I don't want to pass this one up.  Is anyone else around these boards still collecting the rest of the line?  From what I have heard/read Target is not going to carry these anymore?  So is it just TRU (or online/speciality shops) for these now?  I kind of wish there was a way to pick up some of the older figures, for reasonable prices.  But, while I'm wishing, I wish there was a regular Rowlf coming out besides the one exclusive to the playset.  He was my favorite Muppet, but not sure if I want to spend the moolah to get the whole playset just to get him (although it looks great).  A very tempting line though....

I'll vouch for that.  My wife's birthday is only 9 days away and she has a tour animal coming to her thanks to you :)

Although I still don't have any figures from this line, I have been really tempted lately to start in picking up a few of my favorites.  My wife and I picked up one of those "Best of the Muppet Show" DVDs this past weekend, so that doesn't help either I suppose.  I'll probably hold off and see if I can get an Indy Kermit to start things, but Palisades really does a nice job with this line.  Anyways, Action-Figure.com has some pics from "Megacon" that includes some upcoming Muppets pics.  I think that Sweetums figure looks pretty nice.  Anyone else here still collecting this line?

[Homer]mmmmm, Sweetums[/Homer]

That is one awesome figure and the one I've been waiting for.  He freaks my wife out, so I can't wait to bring him home.

In case anyone didn't see it, I was looking around Palisades' site today and they have some updates in the Muppet Bits including pics of the backstage playset with Gaffer the Cat.  Also, today they posted a new update with a pic of an upcoming exclusive "Super Beaker" figure.  Most of you probably already knew this stuff, but I'm new to reading about the line so thought I would post it just in case:

Ordered my Indy Kermit yesterday and today the status went from processing to sent to warehouse. I have started to just collect the Muppets from the Muppet show and the movies . I didnít watch much of the Muppet tonight show so Iím not real familiar with all of the characters form that show. However in the future if I like the looks of a figure or if it is an exclusive Iíll probably get it. I just canít stay away from exclusives.

IF anyone has a target near by they have marked down all of their muppets stuff, series six is marked down to six dollars, and the pigs in space playset was 24 dollars and the mega muppets were down to 17 dollars.

Picked up Statler & Waldorf at my Target for $4.xx--and the rest of that wave was the same price.  They also had the Pigs in Space playset for $17.xx, and a large Beaker for $12.xx.

I've got an extra TRU exclusive Kermit in Tuxedo, too--if anyone needs it, drop me a line. . .

bullet1fan....I might be interested (especially in the Kermit) if I'm not able to get one through StarWarsShop.com (if it ever opens again).  I'll let you know, but if you have someone else that needs one before then that is fine too.  Thanks so much.

 ;D Just got in my indy kermit. I must say i like all of the muppets but this one blows them all away. Since i am a indy fan and a muppet fan the only thing better would be muppets from the mark hamill episode. This is a must for all indy fans. Best figure ever!!!!

Just noticed that Palisades posted an update yesterday (3/24) which includes a number of pictures of the upcoming Sweetums figure.  I think that it looks pretty good, and I'm curious as to how he will be priced.  You can check out pics of the big scary guy over here:

Thanks for the link, that's great news.  Another one my wife would love to have (yes, I am collecting these vicariously through her).  



Is this the picture of the assortment he's in?  If so, that's fantastic.  Three of the other figures she's asked about are Bunsen, Beaker and Swedish Chef, but we have no need/room/desire to get the playset.  What a great assortment.
