    Diamond Select Toys to Produce new Muppet figures and mini mates!

    Agreed. While I was sadly at the last minute not able to attend the Hollywood Bowl Muppet concert, I was able to convince friends not really into the Muppets to see the New York Tribute to Jim Henson Muppet show in 2012 and the recent Los Angeles Jim Henson Exhibit museum and they absolutely...

    Diamond Select Toys to Produce new Muppet figures and mini mates!

    Hello all! I haven't checked this thread in quite some time, but was thrilled to see Diamond is finding a way to release series 4. Personally I wish the Electric Mayhem figures were sold as a 4 pack, and these definitely need to be at Disney Parks and Disney stores...I also have longer...

    Diamond Select Toys to Produce new Muppet figures and mini mates!

    Such a bummer. I wonder if it was only due to lack of sales? Again, $25 is a lot to ask for people, tho not sure how robust the $13 Toys R Us versions were able to sell. I know Id be willing to pay whatever tho if they could even make a limited version of wave 4 as an exclusive online retail...

    Diamond Select Toys to Produce new Muppet figures and mini mates!

    By 2005, 3 years into the Palisades Muppet line they soon switched to online store exclusives and comic convention exclusives. I remember Sweetums(which was the size of a Mega), two Penguins and Uncle Deadly were done in this manner. Palisades even had the Fraggle Rock and Sesame Street license...

    Diamond Select Toys to Produce new Muppet figures and mini mates!

    I swear we as Muppet fans get screwed in merchandising every time:( Tho Palisades did go on for a number of waves and then even extended into digital exclusive waves. But Im seeing Diamond selects big Kingdom Hearts line everywhere in stores and their other lines...I kinda felt the Muppet line...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Live at the Hollywood Bowl September 8-10, 2017

    one more thing, Bill Baretta was my fave Muppet performer of the 2000's; but Peter Linz for me is my new fave Muppet performer of the 2010s. So glad Walter got a little scene in there. Love Peter talking with fans at the end of Adorable Rachels Muppet Bowl coverage

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Live at the Hollywood Bowl September 8-10, 2017

    An official home or stream release I now realize wouldnt do it justice. There's so many angles that'd need to be covered. The "frame" (screen) capture, the giant stage screen, the random antics on the sides, the audience reactions and the performance on stage with the ninja clad performers. All...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets Live at the Hollywood Bowl September 8-10, 2017

    So thankful to everyone on youtube, parascope, instagram, facebook and twitter for posting clips from the show! I now have an almost complete good quality edit of the whole performance, and gotta say Im more than blown away! While Im still pretty bummed I wasnt able to make it at the last...

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    The blindly anti Steve/Pro Disney crowd, tiny as they may be, can't seem to make up their mind. > Steve performed Kermit as mean spirited, angry and bitter on the new tv show > Steve had no creative or writing input So...wouldn't Steve's portrayal of Kermit fall back to writing staff and...

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    Saw on CNN tonight a new interview with Steve. In the video Steve says his firing is the worst thing that could happen to Kermit. That he can refute all the claims against him people are making, and that he feels if it jumps around the screen saying catch phrases that Disney thinks it will fool...

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    One more thing, for those that say Steve Whitmire is risrespecting the brass, and the brand; just look at this interview with Frank Oz two years ago about Disney and The Muppets. Oz one could argue looms as large only second to Jim and Jane Henson with being an authority on the characters and brand.

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    First of all, welcome Greenhoodie. It's certainly encouraging to have more 18+ mature posters on here(no offense to the kids! Just, sometimes it's good to see perspectives from long time fans) Regarding Mcclellan, I don't think I've seen a more happier management/performer business pair than...

    So...it leaked a few hours early, but Disney just uploaded the new Kermit debut to their Muppet Studios channel on youtube:)

    Steve Whitmire has left the Muppets, Matt Vogel to continue as Kermit

    Completely agree. It was BS to see that article trying to guilt trip people into voting for corrupt Hillary using the name of Jim Henson. Im not what youd call a conservative but I was appalled by that. But like the Fake News Russian collusion garbage, so many lies by the media being spun...
