I like them, but really miss the magnet hat, and am looking for something sticky to hold his hat in place (any ideas?). I also fear losing Scooters glasses and left the rubber band in place. I would have preferred they were molded on myself
I used a little blu-tac for the hat!

Oh, and I disagree with MWC about the scale having a potential negative impact on the line. Making the figures bigger and more expensive in order to supplement a ten-year-old, largely affordable and fairly complete line seems like it would have been the wrong move. The new scale works with more toy lines than the old one did, and it allows us to make more characters in an assortment, giving fans more for the same price.
Meh, I still think they're too small. But I will for sure be buying Statler & Waldorf, and Bunsen & Beaker from series 2. I guess the scale doesn't bother me that much if I'm still willing to buy future figures :wink:

Kermit is suppose to be same height as Gonzo or shorter even.

And Animal and Statler towers all of them, which doesn't seem right.

Found this -

Den Of Geek went on set for the last Muppet movie, Muppets Most Wanted, and caught on the side of the wall a list of the official heights of the Muppets themselves. Of the 'regular sized' Muppets, which do you think is the tallest?

Well, the list reads:


The Swedish Chef: 3 foot 6
Fozzie: 3 foot 5
Rowlf: 3 foot 4
Statler: 3 foot 3
Beaker: 3 foot 2
Miss Piggy: 3 foot 1
Animal: 2 foot 10
Sam: 2 foot 10
Walter: 2 foot 5
Scooter: 2 foot 4
Waldorf: 2 foot 4
Kermit: 2 foot 2 1/2
Gonzo: 2 foot

Always got the impression Rowlf was similar in height to Fozzie, but Walter's height is a surprise

My Palisades stuff is at my parents' house but I really want to take comparison shots. I'll get them one day and both sets will live in harmony. On separate shelves.
