No problem :)

There is also a White Tux Rowlf, but he was an industry giveaway, and widely considered (even by Palisades) to NOT be part of the "complete collection".

I think I've found something to sink my former MOTU dollars into.

Is Gonzo only available in that funny suit with the cannon?

I'm also looking for the following figures:
Kermit w/out tux
Fozzie
Crazy Harry
Miss Piggy
Gonzo
Animal

Kermit - Should be fairly easy to pick up on eBay, he was one of the first figures

Fozzie - 4 versions are available as of now, San Diego CC exclusive Invisible Spray Fozzie, Toy Fare Exclusive Red Shirt Vacation Fozzie, Best Buy Inc (Media Play, Sam Goody, Suncoast) Exclusive Blue Shirt Vacation Fozzie, and regular Fozzie

Crazy Harry - Might want to check ebworld.com or beanstoys.com (same for Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie)

Miss Piggy - 2 versions available, regular Series 1 and EB exclusive purple dress Piggy

Gonzo - 2 versions available now, regular version, and EB (I think) exclusive repaint, Series 5 will see Gonzo in purple tux with Camilla

Animal - 2 versions available, 1 exclusive to the Electric Mayhem set, the other exclusive to the Palisades Convention Tour (wearing a Palisades tshirt)

Anyone know when Series 5 will be hitting the shelves? I'm dying to get ahold of the Pepe & Muppet Newsman.

Last I heard, it was sometime in September.  Whether that holds true or it gets pushed back again, we will just have to wait and see...

Isn't there a Miss Piggy from Pigs in Space as well?  

Miss piggy is clearanced up here, the sole remnant of wave 1.  Not sure of the price, maybe $9 or $10 Cdn.

Well, found wave 5 yesterday at one of my local Targets. Muppet Newsman and Pepe are quite cool looking. Is it just me, or does Janice look a bit different than how she did on the Muppet Show?

Hey guys, I know this isn't the trades section, but I figured I'd just mention this.....I've got an invisible Beaker and a Vanishing cream Beaker....both in bag/box and mint.......I'd be interested in trading for loose Star Wars army builders if you're interested......


I've also got one of those ultra rare (200 made total) Holiday Kermit's.......but mine is an error and only has half of his bow tie painted....it's also mint in the bag. This figure was a Giveaway from Palisade's....one was given to each wholesaler who bought from Palisade's.....and then a few handed out to Palisade employees.......

I'd also consider selling these figures.....just make me an offer ;)

Actually there were about 500 Holiday Kermits made, and they were also sold to Fan Club members through a drawing. It was either 50 or 100 sold to Fan Club members...

Jay, I got Koozebane Kermit today! A great figure, thanks for picking him up! If you see Series 5 anywhere, shoot me an email

Hmmm....well, then more of them must have been made....because I got mine directly from Michael Renegar....and he expressly told me 200 made :(

Does anyone have a spare tour Animal?  I know of an online store that has it for $19.95 but thought I'd ask here first.  

Damn TJ, you weren't kidding the other night about lots of lines.  Nice pics btw.

Oh I hear ya.  I have a McFarlane NFL6 Emmitt variant (red Cardinals jersey) that has the insert sheet smashed in the packaging (wasn't sitting right when the sealed the clamshell) and rather than sell it, I think I'll open it.  I don't even particularly like Emmitt.
