I'm sure you Muppets collectors and fans have already been discussing this, but I just caught a glimpse of the upcoming "Backstage" playset, and just like all the prior playsets, it's absolutely awesome! God, I wish Hasbro could do something/anything like this with the SW line.
I also wish I had the money and space to collect the Muppet line, 'cause it absolutely rocks, and the playsets are second to none. In case you haven't seen the Backstage set yet, it's in the latest issue of Lee's/Action Figure News. I guess it was shown at Toyfair, so this is probably totally old news.
I never chimed in about the Indiana Jones Kermit either, I don't think. I got the chance to play with one of these at the L.A. Wizard World convention, and it's absolutely awesome. Incredible detail, outstanding articulation, great accessories, etc. Doesn't get much better than this. (didn't buy it though)
The coolest feature on him is his removable hat. I noticed from afar that it came off his head, so when I got the chance to play with it, I was expecting a little peg in the hat, and hole in the head - but NO. The hat is freaking magnetic! How damned cool is that?!? And it's a strong magnet too, not like that cheap ass crap that Hasbro puts in the SW figures. Fits like a charm, and the magnet is completely invisible. You have no idea it's even there 'til you set the hat on his noggin. You can hang Kermit upside down and shake him and the hat won't come off, but it's easily removable with your figures. Way too cool.
Did I mention that this line is awesome?!
