Not fan art. As stated in the first post, this picture is from the Disney presentation panel at Star Wars Celebration, an official convention at which new merchandise is revealed. That pic was taken of the presentation screen at the panel...the round shape blocking the lower right corner is a person's head sitting in the row in front.

Wow...that's great to hear. It's nice to see Uncle Deadly merchandise besides the Palisades figure, and Gonzo as Darth Vader, which seems to make a reference to the Star Wars episode of TMS.:smile:

Good news! Hopefully Rowlf as Dengar (DengRR?) is just around the corner. :big_grin: Dr. Teeth needs to be somewhere in there too...

I feel like they announced this at just the right time, in the wake of Jerry Nelson's passing. I feel like it's such an honor to him to have one of his characters coming out in a way that is something more than a Palisades figure.

As always, I'm really glad to see more Muppet merch come out.

I will be buying the Deadly figures, and heck, I may go back and order a bunch of Nelson's characters! This is a great tribute to him.
