I’ve been a huge Muppets fan since the 70s even if I have many a nightmare over those floating pig heads from the “Pigs in Space” skit on the old Muppet Show. Regardless of my pigaphobia, I watched the show every week and collected as much merchandise as I could find. When I first heard that the Muppets would have their own Vinylmation set, I was thrilled. With the popularity of the Muppets growing again with a new movie on the way, it just made sense for the Vinylmation team to crank out series 2. We knew a few weeks ago that the series would be released on April 15th but we haven’t seen many of the vinyls. That changed this weekend.
One of my favorite Youtube posters is FrogFan76. His passion for the Muppets is evident. FrogFan76 posted a video earlier that shows us the entire Muppets Series 2 set minus the chaser (more on that later). You can watch his video HERE and trust me you want to! Vinylmation Kingdom personally contacted FrogFan76 earlier today to ask for permission to post screen captures from the YouTube and he has graciously granted permission. So after you watch his YouTube video, catch out the screenshots below:
Now what of the chaser? We haven’t seen the actual image but rumors still point to Waldo, the spirit of 3D from MuppetVision 3D at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, being the chaser. Here are two images of Waldo if you are unfamiliar with the character.
UPDATE: I bought the chaser from eBay. Here it is!
