Looks like the kermit steiff special edition plush isnt coming now till December.
muppet wiki says that it's gonna be like $265. is that true? cause that's a little much for a plush.
Yes, that is the recommended retail price.Steiff is an up market brand.I am getting 10 % off mine($238.50) plus free shipping.
i rully want him, but my parents would never in a million years let me spend that kind of money on what they would just think of as a waste of money.
You are gunna need a lot of spare cash shortly, with the efx photo puppets coming out.
Maybe you should look at a after school job, such as a supermarket or fast food chain?
At least it will be your money to spend how you like!
there's rully not to many places that would be willing to hire me. but i cut the grass at my house. which i need to do once a wekk, because our grass grows rully long rully fast. and i get payed 10 bucks for that.
The Steiff plush is basically for high end collectors. You could get a photo puppet replica Kermit for less than that. Really you could. Probably even Gonzo and Animal too.
And last time I checked, and it was only the proto, it was ugly. The Macy's Kermit cost about 15 bucks, and it was a million times better than this one.
Again, it's a vanity buy for high class toy collectors with a lot of cash. I really wish some other company would go back to making good quality muppet plush the way Sababa did.
I still think the Steiff plush is hiding.
I can understand a high-end plush with the finest materials, but the likeness was absolutely terrible. Even if that is just a prototype, you don't use the current photo to push such an extremely expensive product. Not when you can get the real-deal MR Kermit for less. This product makes no sense except for the weathy obsessive collector who must have everything. I won't be getting it, but I do hope they make it look attractive.
Yeah... Steiff completists or rich toy collectors that want high end stuff because they can afford it. It's pretty sad this is the only plush we know is coming out... even those ugly crane game muppets look better. Of course, to win one of those things, you have to spend the same amount of money in quarters in one of those machines....
So if you can't afford this, relax. I'm sure we'll get some really good Kermit soon enough.
Stieff Plush Feedback
a while ago in my websurfing days I came across news of a kermit
stieff plush.I only thinking gee this looks neat posted my first topic on said plush,little did I know what a can of worms
I had opened.over the next few days I did not see many posts
about the new menber. mostly it was just mad people yelling about what a waste of money the plush was.now today the website toughpigs I see a rant about said plush.I was only trying
be nice and now the whole seems to blown up in my face
I dont know if I will posting anymore info on this site but I want say im sorry if upset any muppet fans and to tell eveyone to think
for sec. within a post of a bad muppet plush there may be a new a fan who just wants to share info.
I believe the picture used is still of a prototype, there have been changes made, but no new pics, lets hope he looks better when the final product is released. I may get one of these as I like the Steiff brand. Yes it is expensive, but thats Steiff, there products are highly collectible!
It's a little too pricy for my account right now. All in all though, he still looks very adorable and cute.
FAO has these listed as shipping in 2-3 days. However no where has any new pictures of the final piece?
Anyone know any updates?
he's way too expensive. for me at least. i don't think i'll be wasting my money on him. considering he's just a plush, and an ugly one at that.
Images of the final revised Kermit Steiff are starting to come through on ebay.
In a few ways, I think the first prototype was better! this one, the mouth is too open, his pupils look too big, and his arms appear to small.Also the texture of the material doesnt look as good either.
Man I hope everyone here has the brains to not purchase something this expensive. I'm sure we all have better-looking Kermits in our homes.
Again, I'm wondering if this is really for Muppet fans or just Steiff completists or collectors who happen to be Muppet fans. As I said, I think the best Kermit plush in recent history was the Macy's Kermit the Frogtographer, which I like just as much as that wonderful Fisher Price plush made back in the 80's.
Besides, even if it was cheap, I don't think I want anything made out of German Mohair.... those poor German Moes.
I was fairly interested in this product but wasnt to keen on the prototype so I was hoping for a better looking final product.
However the final product looks WORSE!
What is wrong with these people? Steiff make adorable Snoopy and Disney plush, there mini Pluto was adorable and although Im no Disney fan his likeness looked pretty good to me. This is a $265 product that looks nothing better than a $1.00 fun fair claw grab machine.
Here is another ebay auction with even more piccys. Yukka!
it looks like the eyes are going to fall off his head.
I agree 100%.I was hoping that Steiff would make something special about their kermit, but it isnt better than a Nanco plush.
