Congrats Padawan....nice score.  I received my first and only Muppets figure a couple of weeks ago, the Adventure Kermit courtesy of SWShop.com.  I was fortunate enough to not have any problems with my order, and got it a week after I ordered it (I wish everyone else would have had as good of luck).  Part of me still wants to get into this line further, but due to space/budget/and now moving, I'm putting it off.  I would like to get a Rowlf figure of some sort before its all said and done, he was my favorite as a kid.  I'd like to get a regular Rowlf, but unfortunately its just with the playset the way it sounds.  I thought I had read a rumor that there might be a "Dr. Bob" Rowlf in the future, I always enjoyed those skits...so hopefully that is true.  The Sweetums pics I've seen make that figure look like a tough one to pass up too.  Anyways, again, nice score there! :)

That's a tad steep, I'd say.  Still, for the boss, er wife, I'll bite the bullet on that one.  Still, about 2x minimum what it should be.

****.

Just...****.


So, I think I'm safe in saying that the Muppets line is on it's way out.

Plus, the carded Animal is a Collector's Paradise exclusive.

I've visited the site, and it's a scalperfest.

You know I really wish I collected this line as it is awesome, but i am so glad i didnt. I cant afford, dont have the room, and there are way too many exclusives. Then again, I really would have liked to buy them all.

I'm not collecting this line (although it has been quite tempting a number of times), but I see that EBGames has the Backstage Playset up for preorder, shipping in September.  If I was into this line, I'd be so psyched for this playset.....plus, it has a "regular" Rowlf...my all time favorite Muppet :P  If only I could get the figure without spending $50 (not that the playset wouldn't be worth it, but where would I put it?)

I am still collecting the Muppets, although I stopped collecting exclusives that are not offered through the Collectors Club (i.e. Dream Date Gonzo).  

It's hard enough to keep up with the multiple repaints, shifty eyes variants and glow in the dark versions to go chasing even more stuff.

All in all though, I am very happy with the line and it looks like there is a good chance that the line will continue past the current contract which is up at the end of 2005.
