Supposedly there is a Beaker in that Muppets line as well-- I saw a picture once online somewhere-- except the guy said he found it at an airport-- and I am not extending my store rounds to include those..


-- Of course i Just checked ebay-- there is a Miss Piggy and Fozzie as well.

I've seen a Statler and Waldorf at my local Walmart, but not any other cars in the line.

Its sad because all I really want is that Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem Band van from the movie and I've never found that anywhere...

The Statler and Waldorf are actually from the other muppets hot wheels retro line-- where they just feature sticker graphics on the normal vehicles-- these (like the recent DC super heroes and Spongebob ones) are supposed to be character representations and supposedly new car molds..


As far as the bus-- I think the only Muppet vehicle released so far is the Muppet bus from the recent Muppet Movie-- they havent done any vehicles I have seen from the classic movies..

That was the one I was talking about as being released-- I picked it up (and since it had the new muppet movie graphics) I assumed it was from that movie at some point, Because it didint look like the bus from the original movie.


-- and I just looked at the images-- it is way off model-- its bad form not of hotwheels to create a new mold for it..

Thats a semi "full scale" bus with seven passenger windows-- the electric mayhem bus- only had 3.5 and was a short bus..

Yeah, I have the Muppet Bus, that's from another line (the retro entertainment series, with vehicles from movies and tv shows like the Miami Vice Ferrari, Ghostbusters Ecto 1, Magnum PI helicopter, Ferrari, etc, Ferris Bueller cars,, etc. etc. The most valuable is the Ecto 1 from that line, I had to buy mine on Ebay, couldn't find it in a store). The other Muppet ones like Statler and Waldorf, etc. are a separate line also, they are just regular cars with tampos on them, where as these are designed to look like the actual character. As far as I know, the only other ones are Beaker, Miss Piggy and Fonzie. They're pretty cool though.

Yeah I had picked up most of that line-- there was a Jessie on the back of the first round of cards- but I never saw one-- and dont see one anywhere on ebay either...

those were cool, but I only picked up an RC right before they were discontinued off the shelves. It goes great with my movie/TV cars.

Disney Parks have an exclusive line of cars that look like characters. There's a ton of them. They even have Star Wars ones.

Yeah-- They are called Disney Racers -- the line started at retail (they came with license plates)- and even had racing track sets linked to the the Jungle Book 2 movie-- didnt do too well overall and then was repurposed to disney world exclusives-- I have most -- I just havent picked up all the metallic repaints, the woody (hes only in a 4 pack), or the red MMPR- since I dont consider that disney)--

And of course like every other line there are exclusives and hard to find variants (a reversed colors dalmatian car (to represent the coal scene)-- and 5 multicolored mickey mouses that I think were only available for a short period as premiums in either different Disney Themed Juice box multi packs- or frozen food or something.. Ive seen sets of the 5 sell upwards of 120.00 or more..

I think they are up to around ballpark 90 different cars or so by now...

I went to another thrift store today and found a bag full of Playmobil from the early 90s. Heres the stuff I kept. The boxed pirate I found in the spring earlier this year. Hes awesome. Ive tried to sell it on ebay for a long time with no luck, so instead of lowballing the price, Im keeping it.

Just luckily picked this up yesterday. These were a San Diego Comic Con exclusive that sold out super fast and have been going up and up and up on eBay. I missed a few actions bidding like $90 plus shipping! I some how got this beauty on kijiji for $80 which I was more than happy to pay. I especially wanted it since I recently ordered the Nightmare on Elm Street one and pre ordered the Robocop one. So now Ill have all 3 so far and I play to buy ever single one!!!! The Freddy from Elm Street is already going up and it just got released

Image
Image

Heres some other figures I also picked up or got in the last few days

Image
The Cyclops from this set might be my favourite figure of all time, holds so much nostalgic value to me. I still have my original loose one so Im super happy to get a MOC

Image
I love any figure from the first 4 Batman movies, they are mega cheesy and that why I love them so much

Image
got these 2 for free from a buddy on my Birthday
