    I'm very disappointed that the Count in the School Bus is molded into the bus and non-removable... but I'm sure he's coming in a wave or two.

    Anyone see the 5 piece Target exclusive Rock Band with Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Elmo and Cookie yet?


    Probably costs a fortune, though. I'd LOVE this one.

    Does any body know when they're supposed to release Series 2 (Snuffy, Zoe, Murray, Grover)?

    Either closer to Christmas or just after.

    I DID see some scalpers managing to get their hands on the Big Bird/ Snuffy set and charge a fortune for it on e-Bay.

    You mean BB and Abby? I saw that one at TRU last week and picked it up. Didn't know there was
    a BB/Snuffy set.

    I don't know how many new ones were just released, but I just came back from Target and I found the Murray/Super Grover set. And naturally didn't have the money to pick it up.

    BTW, the band set retails for a reasonable 15 bucks each. That's still 3 bucks a figure.

    Awesome! May have to stop by Target tomorrow and look for that.

    was just on the Hasbro website and fund a listing for a winter time 3pack featuring Elmo, Cookie, and Abby. Very cute looking.

    Am I the only one who hasn't seen the BB and Abby set or Super Grover and Murray set in any shape or form?!?! :grouchy:

    Seen Big Bird and Abby but not Grover and Murray. I believe Grover and Murray are just hitting stores now. Haven't seen the BB/Snuffy or Abby/Zoe sets either (other than eBay)

    Also found a rollerblading Rosita/Abby set and a Soccer Elmo/Referee Count set on kmart.com. Very tempted by the Elmo/Count set but will most likely hold out hope for a regular Count further down the line.

    I've never seen the Abby Big Bird set. Granted, I haven't been to stores that carry them that lately. But I definitely will try to pick up either Cookie/Telly or SG/Murray.

    I hope if the Abby/Rosita and Elmo/Count sets are K-Mart exclusives, they have them after Christmas. I'm NOT waiting until further down the line for Count. Even then, he's one of my favorites, so I would indeed get the variant version.

    That's the fun of these kinds of toys. The variants aren't annoying and don't hamper other characters... 2k3 TMNT line.

    What I also like is that there ARE variants. I hated it when they did the 40th anniversary 2 packs and EVERY single Elmo and CM was the same one so if you bought everything (to get all the characters they released you had 3 Elmos. but you can get the Elmo/Oscar set, CM/Telly set, and the playset and you still have two different Elmos and two different Cookie Monsters.

    And like you said the variants aren't annoying, so if skateboarding Rosita is the only Rosita they do, or the only one you can find, it still looks good in the collection.

    What I'd really love for them to make though is a Waiter Grover and Mr. Johnson 2pack. I would buy that in heartbeat.

    I really wasn't excited at all by the lackluster release of the 40th anniversary stuff. Though I did like the Oscar/Super Grover set.. the fact the Big Bird and Ernie set came with an Ernie I got years before for a buck at Target just soured me on the whole thing. There wasn't even an effort for further characters.

    With this line, not only do we have variety and variants, we have vision. Some may be nostalgic of the Sesame Little People, I'm fairly nostalgic about Sesame Street PVC. And when those things were out, we had a lot of different characters getting made. There was a real gap since the 90's of Sesame Street PVC... Fisher Price had some, but they were always the same characters. That's what I love about these. They do have variants, but they also manage to keep the character roster fresh. Sure, there are a few Elmos, but we also get a Telly and a Murray... characters they never or rarely ever made toys of.

    I have no doubt some collectors friendly characters will be seen down the line (hopefully before the 45th anniversary. it's close, but not that close). I just hope they aren't super exclusives that are hard to find.

    Any ideas for wave 2 Rosita,Baby Bear,or Herry Monster?:smirk:
  14. matleo

    matleo Well-Known Member

    Wave 2 is coming out now and includes Super Grover/Murray, Abby/Zoe, Snuffy/Big Bid. If they do a wave 3 I imagine it will include at least Count, Rosita, Baby Bear, and a regular Grover. But that's speculation on my part.
  15. Beartutter

    They actually already did.:super:

    Just bought Murray and Supergrover. Murray is my Two yar olds favorite.

    YES!!! Finally scored BB/Snuffy and Murray/SG. Also found the Rollersakting Abby/Rosita set. So my daughter's stocking is all set and done. I'm going to keep my eyes out for the ZOE/Abby set but if I don't find them between now and Christmas, that's okay too.
  18. YipYip UhHuh

    YipYip UhHuh New Member

    We found them all except BB/Snuffy and Abby/Zoe. Hopefully they start showing up in the stores soon. I refuse to pay the ridiculous prices people are asking on eBay for them.
    If they do any further characters, I'd like to see Barkley, Baby Bear, and Prairie Dawn. Not sure if that will ever happen, but I can always hope.

    I really want Count, Prairie Dawn, Barkley, and a Waiter Grover/Mr, Johnson set.
