Picked up all three wave one figures: Kermit, Robin, and Bean, Gonzo and Camilla, and Fozzie and Scooter. Very nice price. If all of the figures come out like this I'll be able to afford them.

Wave 2 is on Diamond's list for next week's deliveries to comic shops (8/10/16). YMMV.

So wave two is out at Toys R Us. And Animal comes with his drumset. But no Rowlf. Are they kidding me?!

Really hoping another wave will be shown at Toy Fair this month. I was disappointed that nothing new was revealed at SDCC last summer. We need at least a couple more waves to finish the core cast of characters (including the rest of the band)

Picked up Budget Bunsen and Beaker at Toys R Us. Still looking for Statler and Waldorf.

Wave 4 revealed and up for preorder at BBTS!

Dr. Teeth & Zoot
Sam the Eagle & Rizzo
The Swedish Chef

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/prod ... ode=retail

I love that the Swedish Chef comes with a full kitchen table with cookwear.

So with Wave 4 revealed, who are the primary or secondary classic characters left for them to do if there's anymore waves after this? Seems like they could potentially finish the rest of the original line up with just one or two more waves plus a deluxe sized Sweetums figure. I'd like to see a Pigs in Space set too, as well as some of Kermit's prominent costume variations.

I'm not so interested in the newer characters introduced in Muppets Tonight or the recent films, and so far it seems like DST is primarily focusing on the original characters from the classic show and 1980s movies.

Per my comments from last July on page 4:

Quote:
DST does a Muppets Minimates line too, so perhaps some of the character selection in it indicates potential characters in their next Muppets Select lines too. They've already done the more obscure Mahna-Mahna in their minimates line too, so that's indicative of similar character selection choices for both lines. Here's minimates they've done so far that aren't in the first 3 Select waves: Dr. Teeth, Zoot, Lips, News Reporter Kermit variant, Swedish Chef (plus battered variant), Stunt Show Gonzo variant, Constantine, Patrol Cop Fozzie variant, Muppet Newsman, and Pepe. I bet several of those end up in waves 4 and 5 for the Select line too.


Crossing off Dr. Teeth, Zoot, and the Swedish Chef from that list above... the remaining Minimates characters that could also end up being in the next Muppets Select waves could be: Lips, News Reporter Kermit variant, Stunt Show Gonzo variant, Constantine, Patrol Cop Fozzie variant, Muppet Newsman, and Pepe. We're still missing Lew Zealand too as I recall. Is there any other prominent characters left to do?

Beauregard, Uncle Deadly, Marvin Suggs and his Muppaphones, Clifford, Bobo, Veterinarians' Hospital... have they done any of the chickens?...

I haven't been buying the line (but I'm thinking maybe I should...) but I know I'd grab a set of these if they made them, though I imagine the extra licensing would count them out... The band that was made up of Muppets that looked like the Muppeteers. I missed getting the Henson that Palisades put out but it was sad that they didn't follow up with the rest of them.

Camilla came with Gonzo. Other Muppets I'd like to see are Pops, Yolanda, Johnny Fiama And Sal, Andy and Randy Pig, and for the meganerds, Wayne and Wanda. I think we deserve a Walter, 80's Robot, and Chip the IT Guy too.

A small chicken appears to come with the Swedish Chef set even though it's not specifically mentioned in the preorder page.

Okay, so I just opened Animal and Bunsen and Beaker. It took me an hour and a half. Is there a specific reason Diamond not only puts so many twist ties ever every figure and accessory, but twists them so tightly and over and over again that they are nearly impossible to untwist? If it's to keep the toys from breaking, that's a fail, because they are much more likely to snap trying to get them out of those things.

And this is the cheapo Toys R Us packaging. I cannot imagine how bad the deluxe versions must be.

How elaborate does the packaging need to be? They're freaking Muppets. McDonald's offered the Muppet Babies and Fraggle Rock in plastic wrappers in the 1980's and I didn't complain. Who or what are they trying to protect here?

I just want a Stu frogketeer, from the cindy crawford muppets tonight episode. I have always wanted and action figure of me and a muppet version, so two birds with one stone....

Odds of that, the same as me and toy guru getting along.
