    I contacted my local disneystore to inquire more about the event. The lady told me it is where we build a muppet!!!

    What does that translate to in "Reality?"

    Maybe smaller or alternate versions of whatnots are going to be delivered to the store? At this point any Muppet event is exciting, since it doesn't look like Disney parks will do anything official

    It might just be out of cheap recyclable stuff.. I'm not sure exactly what the Perry the Platypus toys were made of. Anyone know anyone who attended that thing? Maybe the info lies in there.

    Do you think they will be selling him the date of the movie release?

    i said this in the other thread but it belongs here...it seems while the Disney Stores know of the Walter Plush they have no idea when they will get him, my guess is once the movie is out we will see him hit stores so people know who he is

    I hope they are saving him for when the movie comes out. I noticed that as far as Cars 2 and Toy Story 3, most of the characters introduced in the movie didn't hit their stores until the movie... with the exception of Lotso, but they were trying to hype the character up. But I didn't see a single Cars 2 character until after the movie.

    So why don't they make a Rowlf and Scooter plush?

    Because they hate me. That's why. Because I'm chomping at the bit for a Rowlf they won't make one. That's how my luck goes. Or at least that's how it seems sometimes.

    Because they want to make the more popular muppets first :/

    I would love a cuddly Uncle Deadly plush, but I doubt thats gonna happen.

    If things go well, I don't doubt a Rowlf would be on the way. Scooter maybe, a less likely option... but no more less likely than the fact they have the first Pepe plush for general retail release. I'm actually surprised to see a Walter at any rate. Worst case scenario I was expecting only to see Kermit, Piggy, and Animal... maybe Gonzo and Fozzie.

    Actually I always thought Walter would be a shoo-in for merchandise what with him featuring so heavily in the new movie. Push the new character and all that.
    I need a Rowlf toy of some kind. It's been 30 years. I've waited long enough.

    As I said, it's highly irregular for them to have done movie specific characters... though, to be fair, the first 2 Muppet Movies didn't feature any new Muppet characters...

    There is a Spanish PVC set that had Spa'am, Mad Monty with Polly Lobster, and the tourist rats. There was also a European kid's meal with Long John Silver (the only human character ever to be made), and a Dairy Queen Kermit's Swamp Years promotion that had Goggles (and I want to say someone else). I don't count anything from Palisades, since they were made well after the films.

    And as I said, Lotso managed to get a huge push when TS3 came out because they were trying to build up an artificial history for the character (making a mock 1980's commercial and discreetly posting it on youtube with various other toy commercials in the account)... but I didn't see Finn McMissile or Professor Z until closer to the movie's release. At least as far as Disney stores go.

    Yippy! Walter is now for sale.I couldnt see him on the Disney Store Muppet page, but if you follow the tough pigs link, he is there.

    I took my kids to the muppet event. They were Paper bags with punch out what not parts you could put on. This is pretty much what I expected from previous Disney store crafts (Cars and princess things) They let me take a few extra sheets of Muppet parts to make some at home. It was a simple craft but fun. It was also very packed when we arrived which meant a lot of kids were exposed to or excited about muppets.

    Thanks muppetperson! I probably wouldn't have found the plush for sale without your help :)
