I so don't get the hate. Fits in with what this is meant to be. A whatever plastics we have for each part prototype. So now everyone's will be different.

I'm acting like I wasn't a completist once with that comment, but hates a strong word.

I have to ask. Pete Fett, did you have a small stroke when you saw they are mixing and matching the color combos on this things limbs?

Note-I did see your post below so I see you're not really that interested, but couldn't help but think of your Droid flight.

I feel Billy is needed in this "80s" show. When they 180'd Steve's character they needed a replacement of sorts.

Can't say I'm shocked someone in picking up distance isn't ready to buy one. What makes it a &#$\%× thing?

Thanks!

So 2021 Death Star will be $800.

Then real Haslab or wife question becomes reality

8000 seems insane to me. But 8000 probably seemed insane to Transformers' fans when Barge ended.

I agree with what Muftak is saying but still think it would have saved them some grief to make it clear something like SS was a possibility.

Maybe even they didn't think that at first?

Not sure where people are at with wanting to talk spoilers yet but curious what people's thoughts on Hopper were this season. I had no problem with him. His past experiences made him who he is. But I've read some interesting angry posts about his character online.

I can't see how this succeeding would hurt us as SW collectors. I doubt they'll cancel the next SW item (whenever that is to come) to make Grover in response to 3000 Cookie Monsters selling. And I feel there's way too much "guessing" to assume SW moves up again if Cookie Monster fails.

I would be willing to bet a lot of the people that think this failing or succeeding directly benefits or hurts us SW people are the same entitled people that want everything their way and can't wait to say I told ya so.

I won't lie. I'm disappointed in Cookie Monster. But just for me personally. It does little for me. Something from Joe, Marvel, etc would have been more fun to see even if I didn't buy in as I find that interesting. But that also isn't going to make me begrudge a fellow toy collector something they love. So here's hoping at least 3000 people own a $300 blue monster this time next year.

The group losing their mind because this isn't Star Wars are laughable until they become nauseating.

I will say I think Hasbro could have done themselves a favor by making this type of line more obviously a possibility for Haslab. This reaction can't come as a shock to them. The group that expects nothing but what they want (with Disney too) has been bad mouthing them for quite some time now. Even if it's a bunch of crazies.

Most of the community of collectors I interact with were sure this would be from the SW, Marvel, Joe or Transformers lines. So as Hasbro why not nip that at the bud at least a little a little sooner?

Serious question. Does anyone know if the Sesame Street / Muppet collecting community thought at Haslabs inception that something like this was a possibility?

Shame on me for not doing my Muppet related research before commenting.

This paragraph is hilarious to me for some reason.

Because to bring the dream of a full-size Sesame Street product to life, we consulted with leaders and influencers in the Muppet fan community to voice fan opinion about character choice, product development, offering, and messaging—making this a by-the-fans, for-the-fans project, every step of the way.

I have zero surprise it's not Star Wars. But I certainly thought it would be a collector heavy toy line. Admittedly I don't know if Sesame Street has a lot of toy collectors.
