    No, Jack Danger / DeadFlip has been mocking up some title fantasies.

    It’s a shame. It looks real good and it’s a fun theme.

    Never heard of that theme. Looks awful to.

    I don't think it would be a good theme , it's a musical but it does have a plant that eats people

    The Muppet Show was my favorite TV show as a young child and would be a must buy theme for me! So many great characters, catchy music and humor.

    As far as toys go you could have a Gonzo Cannon, Kermit's swamp lower playfield, Electric Mayhem pop pop bumper cluster, a mode where Fozzie tells bad jokes and you need to knock him off the stage, Pigs in Space, etc. It really has to be one of the best themes available at this point in time that hits a peak buyer demographic.

    Ball drain earns you a comment from Statler and Waldorf, chirping you.

    Or if you don't finish a mode they could say that was pretty good , It was alright , it was pretty average , actually it was bad , it was awful , that was terrible Boo Boo

    I know that Stern did in fact have the muppets license in the 2014 timeframe. I don’t know how long they had to use it, so it’s probably lapsed by now. My impression is that they didn’t pull the trigger on it because the remake of “The Muppets” on ABC in that timeframe flopped.

    Whatever happened to the rumor that this was in the queue for JJP? Was supposed to follow Toy Story.

    This one is just a mockup , maybe jjp have the licence ?

    Wife loved the Muppet Show, she would want this theme which would make it one less pin I want that I would get

    My guess is that it didn't happen for licensing reasons since Disney owns the Muppets now. Since Disney has been trying to promote the "New" Muppets I doubt they'd want to license the old 40 year old content from the Muppet Show which is what people want. A pin based on the new Muppet properties would be a mistake.

    New muppets: booooo
    Old muppets: yay! JJP should do it. After GnR and Toy Story though. I need some time to $ave up...

    #18 9 months ago

    Muppets was one of the only shows that as a family we'd get together and watch in the early 80s. Really had something for everyone. I'm not a nib buyer but would definitely like to flip one if ever made

    #19 9 months ago

    Muppets would probably be a pass for me as I never seen any of the movies or show so it doesn't do much for me personally. Same with Little Shop Of Horrors never seen the movie so it doesn't do much for me.

    New Muppets? You mean the series that ran for 2 seasons and was canceled a few years back?

    #21 9 months ago

    Rumor was jjp had this a couple years back. I'd be more interested in a jjp version, but this mock up looks cool. It even has a deathstar in it. Lol.

    Yes. The cancelled series from a few years ago or the newer movies like Most Wanted and The Muppets. The Muppets movie from 2011 is actually pretty decent. I think Disney will probably bring them back again at some point. I just don't see them having a lot of interest in licensing the pre-Disney content. Similar to Tron. That's why I don't think we'll see a pin based on the original Tron movie.
