    How fantastic, the Disney Store on Bond Street, London has a Big Muppet wall at the back, with keyrings, badges, mugs, bags, notepads, wallet, plush, pyjamas and more, most of it's on the website as well.

    Hopefully they'll get more in closer to the films release, but i'm already surprised by the amount they do have, more than they've ever had.

    I picked up some really nice key-rings with a metalic painted Kermit and Miss Piggy. Not overly practical as key-rings (turns out Kermit's collar is quite painful when in mental and in pocket) but I'm planning to attach them to a chain to wear instead.

    I'm kicking myself for not picking up Walter and Chef when I was in London, but will check local Disney stores for stuff too.

    I haven't got a Disney store near me :(

    I'll have to go on a trip to one some point soon, or just go on to their website.
    Thank you Markit!

    I love Walter! That plush is awesome!! Pepe is also a must! And works pretty well to scale with the Master Replicas posers.

    Just a couple of quick snaps to show Pepe with the MR posers, ok, so he's maybe a little big :) And of course Walter too, i wasn't sure about the Walter plush at first, but now having seen the movie, this reminds me of the scene where he's screaming constantly for hours after hearing about Tex Richman knocking down the Muppet theatre, so he makes me smile :) And Rizzo unfortunately doesn't look too good with the posers, but not a bad plush, just not great!

    I haven't got them displayed properly at the moment unfortunately, in between houses and not yet got a room to display everything, but no way are they going in boxes up in the loft!! :)

    Oh yes, Pepe looks fantastic with them there! Walter's slightly bent plush mouth totally reminded me of the scream-scene when I saw him at the Disney store, but I love him so much that I'll allow it.

    I was hoping they would be on The Jonathan Ross Show!!! It'll be great!
    Most of the time it is filmed a few hours before or the day before in some cases.
  14. Really? I always thought they recorded on the Wednesday or Thursday to be screened on Saturday...
  15. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I think they do actually. Although its possible that they'd do pickups closer to the time with just Jonathan, intros and things?

    Oops. Am I thinking of his old show 'Friday night with Jonathan Ross', or was that the same?

    i hope people can put this stuff on youtube, so we can all see it!

    i assume then that they will probably be in the uk this week, for the premiere on the 26th. so i hope everyone there is on the lookout for the press appearances in the next few days, talk shows and radio and stuff

    it should be easier to get these online than it was to track down the germany and australia ones. it usually is
