Sounds like an awesome line up! I absolutely love this line.
Jay, if you need to get ahold of me, my new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, I've heard that the Musicland (Suncoast, Sam Goody, Media Play) exclusive versions of the Vacation Pepe are due out soon; if anyone sees one, could you pick it up for me? Ill gladly cover all your costs.
Got my Holiday Rizzo today!
Very cool figure, but his hat doesnt fit. My collection is once again complete, except for Industry Giveaways and Ken's Wedding Reception Gift, none of which I plan on collecting.
Cant wait for Series 6, I've been patiently waiting for Statler and Waldorf in normal clothes since the line first got started.
Pigs in Space is due out soon as well, very anxious about that playset.
Palisades is also re-releasing a playset sometime next year, no word on which. I have them all, but wouldnt mind seeing a repainted Electric Mayhem set. It would go well, since we get repaints of all the band members. You could set up two complete bands. If its just a rerelease in updated packaging though, I wont get it. So hopefully they do something very major to update it, or keep it exactly as is. Ill be a little ticked if it has just a new figure, or new accessories. Bleh.
The backstage playset looks fantastic, and HUGE! Glad to see this set, along with Vets Hospital. That pretty much covers all the best environments. I still wish (hope) they could pull their stuff together and make a scale Electric Mayhem bus, but Ive heard that wont happen.
I cant begin to say how excited I am about finally getting Sal Manilla too! He's one of my favorite Muppets. Now we just need to get Bean Bunny, a bigger crew from MTI (We are getting Kermit as Captain Smollet soon), and more supporting characters. I want rat and penguin packs, accessory and scene sets, etc.
While we're on the subject of Palisades, and this doesnt really warrant a new thread, what the hell happened to Urbanimals? Palisades doesnt even recognize their existence now. They said they put them on the back burner, but geesh, theyve even taken away the stuff from the forums. I thought they were pretty freakin cool, and Im not even into Urban or Hip Hop.
