    I read this on Danny's ToughPigs.com site, i haven't heard anyone talking about it and just wondering if anyone know's any info? Luke will these be in your area?

    Theres a photo of 8 Muppet doll's on Tough Pigs inculding Kermit,Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, ROWLF, Swedish Chef, Animal, and Beaker.
    its to bad they couldn't do ten dolls then you could have bunsen and scooter, or how about 12 dolls with statler and waldorf also.

    well, anyways UNFAIR! I want them too! I'm sure that they aren't the greatest dolls and someday they may win a ugly contest, but i can't really see all that well in the photo.

    when i first read about this i thought to my self it should be a rule that every Mc Donalds should have the sametoys around the world, but then i thought well there are toys that may be based on a US cartoon show that the UK doesn't play or some toys that are made in the UK that the US does have and Vice versa.

    But i think that this one should be alaround the world because it's the muppets, i mean we didn't get much from Dennys and LJS, it would be great for henson if there characters were in every MC'ds. it would be great promotion for the 25 years.

    If they are in the UK, i'll get them for people - but our happy meal toys are usually different from France and Germany so it's not the same throughout the whole of Europe. Our next one up is Beauty and the Beast on Nov 9th and it runs for 9 weeks so i think the Muppets won't happen here. Any Germans in the house ?

    (sadly sighing)

    Man, and over here we're stuck with the thrice yearly, gender specific toy. Boys get ugly Transformers Armada toys (that look like the cheap 1980's Transformer ripoffs), and crappy Hello Kitty stuff (She has no mouth! Doesn't that scare anyone?)

    I mean they have Rowlf, Beaker, and the Swedish Chef? MAAAANNNN!!! OH THE PAIN! OH THE PAIN OF IT ALL!!!!!!

    SOmeone please look for these somewhere! PLEASE???

    Another reason to boycott McD's. Not only did I see a guy in the back eating over food he was preparing, NOW they won't sell Muppet Merchandise in the US.

    WHY oh WHY????

    Wow, with Rowlf and Beaker and Chef even. that's an impressive lineup for McDonalds...wish they were here. Or I wish I were there. I wish a lot of things.

    As some of you might know, I've collected Happy Meal toys since I was a tot, and even worked on some collector's guides published in the early 90's. So everyone Listen to ME:

    DON'T PANIC!!!

    These still might show up in the US (but I'm doubtful).

    Here's the weird thing. Right now, I can find no info about it anywhere. Beauty and the Beast is running for most of November in Europe (and I'm ticked as Germany has a plush Lumiere and England (LUKE!!!) has the Wardrobe and Maurice, none of which were available in the states!!!)

    There are very few exclusive Europe Happy Meals any more. They do switch some toys out. However, I find it odd that the 25th anniversary is almost officially over, and these have yet to come out.

    I'M PANICING NOW. And I'm actually going to call my friends in Germany and shake them down for details.:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I thought these were coming to Germany.

    But then i realised when i got my Los Telenecos Football Muppet Plush on there tags it says 'Telenecos - 25 Aniversario' .
    They are Spanish, And the whole 25th Anniversary logo was all in Spanish.

    So these would be in German, right ?

    So now im really hoping they are coming to England!

    See ya

    Well I'm still searching.

    France has M&M's right now, and Japan has Mickey and Company Christmas Themed toys!!!!

    Odds are they will pop up all over Europe, but maybe at various times. I still have a lot of unanswered questions that I'm looking into.

    As soon as i saw it was available in Germany i emailed all my German friends - LOL

    Well all most all of Europe have just started Beauty and the Beast, So maybe the Muppets are next in line ?

    It sucks that all of the toys available in the states were also available over there, otherwise I would have traded you for a Wardrobe!

    You guys got them too didn't you? If not, let me know, and I'll get you the Muppet Babies, GMC Glasses, MTI, and any others you want.

    I have to say, the UK BK MFS (woah! Three abriviations at once!!!) toys are better than the US wendy's ones, in some ways. Don't care too much for the Animal, but the Rizzo ANd EM bus with Kermit sticking out are the best.
    I have just one wendy's Gonzo, and it fell on the floor! Now it doesn't spark anymore!

    I need The Great Muppet Caper Glass that was only available for the McDonalds employees !

    But i doubt you got two of those !

    I bought all the rest tho...

    And you say our toys are better ?!
    NHL Muppet Plushes ?!


    But really i think some toys are better out of each sets, They seam a whole lot better because its harder to get them.

    But i have em all, apart from that Mexican Muppet Racer set !

    See ya

    Re: Nate,

    The NHL were in Canada, still kinda hard for US folks to get until they hit ebay.

    I've not seen the Mexican Muppet Racer set either!

    (And no, I don't have 2 of the employees glass):D
