@bills-all-day I just want to mention that I love your customs and hope you post more pics in the future.

As far as new DST figures, I'd probably buy any Muppet from the Muppet Show or the first few movies.  Newer stuff would be easier to skip, but I'd most likely get them too.

I 100% agree on the need for Snowths probably more than anyone else right now.

All this talk of Lew Zealand made me cave and buy the Palisades toy off of eBay! Thanks... 😆

Do you have a Palisades collection?  I'm not trying to kill your buzz, because it's a great figure, it just won't even come close to fitting in with the DST stuff.  I assume you already know that, though.

@captaincracker No, I only had DST up to now. I'm just in a rush I guess.

Your Palisades Lew will have taken the Insta-Grow pills from the Muppet Movie!

@normdapito Lol I'm not really a stickler for scale. I also got the Newsman and Marvin Suggs.

@captaincracker Thank you! My custom Bobby Benson is included in the below images. I don't think I have shown him here before. I'm currently working on Ma Bear, which I can share when done.

@souled4 I've been pushing Lew Zealand pretty hard here in the hopes it magically manifests a DST Lew figure. I also bought a Palisades Lew, Newsman, and Marvin plus a Pops and Beauregard to fill in my DST collection and for customizing reference. They are great figures, though definitely not in scale with DST.

Zach's recent post here has me hopeful that I won't need to use these Palisades figures for reference because DST will eventually make them, at least some of them. For now, I'll focus on more obscure Muppets like Mildred and Zelda Rose.

@bills-all-day The custom of Nigel is awesome! I also just found a Beauregard on eBay. Now I have a Palisades sub-collection. 😎

This past weekend, DST had a few Facebook posts promoting pre-orders of their Uncle Deadly and Pepe figures. I think MSWord had mentioned that they usually use about a month of pre-orders to help determine the number of figures to produce. I assume these posts are timed with the end of that period. Hopefully, it's just standard advertising practice, and it's not a sign pre-orders are low. Considering how the full wave approach had to be abandoned, I'm curious how the single pack releases strategy will work. Obviously, I hope there is sustained interest in the line and we get many more new figures.

Sorry if this comes across as me trying to pressure you to share anything, MSWord. That's definitely not my intention. I'm just sharing some of my thoughts here and hoping for this line to continue selling.

No pressure, the line is doing fine, we are always trying to generate new sales. The next figure MAY be offered in late January. We are working on that issue of the catalog now (just started) and it is on the list, although it is not entirely approved yet.

Thanks for responding. That's all great to read! I'm so excited to see the next Muppet figure y'all make. It's great that we might not have to wait too long to see it.

Thanks for letting us know! Apparently, bbts may have jumped the gun a little on posting these. At around 1 hr 2 min in the below video Brian Flynn talks about their Sesame Street line. He mentioned they have something big planned for Wave 3. Maybe Snuffy? Although, Big Bird would make more sense, I think.

I'm curious how the wave 1 figures will look in hand. I have my reservations about ReAction figures because of their price, size, limited articulation, and retro style. Though, the renders for these figures look pretty nice.

  • @bills-all-day From what I've seen, the Sesame figures look great, on model too! Sad I can't say the same for the Muppets reaction figures.

EE posted them as well.  From what I've seen, new Reaction waves often get posted with no pictures and no announcement.  They don't always get the same promotion as Ultimates.
