It's EFX Collectibes - just announced today...
Here's the important bits from the announcement:
Well, thats great news if it is, Its just a shame that MuppetPerson didnt make this announcement after all the hard work that he put in.
Here's the whole announcement:
Cheers Fennshysa, you've made my year! ! !
Rizzo...great - I'll take 2
Pépe...awesome - count me in for a couple
Piggy...PIGGY? ? ? ? ? - Where do I sign? ? ? ? ?
First, I would like to apologize to MuppetPerson, since I know that he wanted to be the to make the announcement. We had promised him that he would be one of the first to get the press release. Unfortunately, we did not realize that when we started to send out the presss release, it was 2 AM in Australia! Once again, I apologize MuppetPerson!
We are proud to be the new licensee for the Muppets and Disney collectible replicas! As MuppetPerson had indicated previously, we are working diligently to have a couple samples ready to see at Comic Con.
We look forward to continuing the Poser line! And don't worry, Fozzie is not dead! He is on life support, but still breathing!
Thanks once again!
Yeah... my thoughts almost exactly. I haven't gotten Animal and don't plan to, but I can honestly say that I WILL be getting ALL three of these.
Dude you are missing out if you dont get animal!
I have got to say you REALLY need to get Animal and before his price goes up, which it inevitably will. Although, not my favourite character, he is my favourite poser. I have never seen a photo do the poser justice - he really is phenomenal!
This makes sense. I still hope for Fozzie, but I'm glad to have Piggy and the prawn. And Rizzo too. All three have the potential to be great and make the collection I have seem a little more full. Now I've got to go on a heist or sell some blood.
Huh. Really? I'm very surprised by that--like you said, I've never seen any pictures that really do it for me. Hmm... well perhaps now I'll seriously look into him. Maybe I could swing that as a graduation present.
Sounds good to me. Excited about Rizzo and Pepe, though I wish these guys luck with Miss Piggy. Whatever the issue was with Fozzie, I can't imagine a full size Miss Piggy will be easy - and who doesn't remember the Piggy likeness issues Palisades went through and the way Disney wanted her portrayed.
I'm thinking the same thing, but this is a different sort of product. Also Fozzie has been pushed aside in the last three theatrical films and in Muppets Tonight. He's regaining his visibility now, but the pig never really left. Still. Miss Piggy - if done right - will likely be very expensive!
I'm just happy about Pepe. I always thought MR was off the mark in excluding the potential of a Pepe poser. I'd rather have Scooter or a Mayhem member first, but the prawn is a crowd pleaser and a good looking puppet. He has a higher selling potential IMHO.
Darn, I've just realised something. With the addition of Pépe, Disney are no longer sticking with the original Muppet Show characters. If thats the case, which incarnation of Piggy will they create? I have huge disdain for the more recent Disney Piggy puppets.
Oh well, at least we are on the way to getting something - thats a huge leap forward
Yep, it's all out now.Enjoy!
Do you know anything about the prototypes or a proposed schedule of release dates?
YAY RIZZO! Add Fozzie, Scooter, and Rowlf on with those three and I'm happy!
EDIT: I'm happy anyway that they're being made, but you know what I mean!
Looks like September but I havent got the press release yet!
Do you know the order of release, the press release states Muppet posers including Miss Piggy Rizzo and Pepe, which could mean other characters and it doesnt say in that order.
I am so excited about the Miss Piggy poser, I could burst, lol.
I know there are so many concerns over the look of her and which one they choose, what she will be made of, what outfit and what hair style? Also she is likely to be expensive, but I dont care! But lets just wait and see, and hope?
I believe someone on here said that a lot of Master Replicas staff work now at efx, are we likely to encounter design problems due to this fact, like Animals mouth not opening and the Gonzo nose?
Whatever the case this is great news.
Please continue to let us know any updates Muppetperson, just waiting for the first pics to surface now!
I will have to wait on some info, but I beleive Rizzo might be first.
There was also talk of a Reporter kermit, which was going to be first.Although eFX has some staff that used to work at Master Replicas, they are different Companies and you can feel comfortable that they will be delivering high quality that you expect.
Pepe! Yes! I'll have to get this one.
