I just did a quick web search and found zero results for Iroh/Blue Spirit. Can you share the pics, please? :)

Didn't check Youtube - thanks! Iroh looks great!! A tea set is all I really needed with him, but I'll happily take a fire breathing face! :)

What does everyone think of the DST Muppet figures? Are they fun to play with? Thinking of jumping into this line...

I find them pretty fun to mess around with. There’s some decent articulation and for me they scale well with other six inch lines.

I recently bought a DST Scooter to turn into a "Smile Time" Puppet Angel and I was impressed by the body - it's tiny but very poseable. Scale was almost perfect, too.

We showed art in our virtual panel. Blue Spirit Zuko and Uncle Iroh.
Those look great! Thank you for the update. I feel like you guys have hit all the must haves. Everything else is just gravy. Usually, the Walgreens releases have different head sculpts if those are going away can we expect multiple headsculpts like Iroh and Blue Spirit Zuko going forward? I wouldn't hate getting a different more light hearted expression for Sokka.

I absolutely love them! As someone who missed out on the Palisades line, I was so happy with the DST releases (the fact that they scale well with other 6" lines is a bonus). They look great on a shelf together, and set up in scenes with other lines (my Bespin Luke, Chewbacca, and the droids, have made "guest" appearances on the Muppet shelf more than once). I'm truly hoping we get more sets in the near future, especially the unreleased Sam/Rizzo two pack that was teased. There are SO many characters they still need to do, though the "core" characters are nicely represented at this point.

My ONLY complaint is that I'm probably going to have to buy a second Kermit, as mine did a shelf dive and his leg broke off (I was able to glue it back, but now he cannot be posed sitting). Kermit's joints are a bit fragile, but I honestly don't know what DST could have done in this scale to prevent that...in order for him to be sized correctly AND articulated, he had to have pretty small joints. Other than that one issue, these are really well made, and the packs come loaded with lots of accessories. If you're a Muppet fan, then I highly recommend this line!

I also skipped out on the Palisades Muppets. I picked up the recent Best of Muppets figures and love them. They're very photogenic. Hopefully, the line continues. It also makes me want the Looney Tunes characters to get similar treatment.

The Sam/Rizzo 2pk is up for preorder now. So the line isn't dead.

Not 100% sure all Avatar heads will make it in, this is just concept art, but we'll see.

And yes, Muppets continues with Sam and Rizzo. Pre-order soon and often.

I finally tracked down Vincent, Bob & Max for a decent price in the UK, while they have their issues these are amazing to have, totally grail pieces. Any new figures would be an instant pre-order for me, I won’t make the same mistake I made with the first wave!

Avatar Series 4 should arrive in stores August 18th. Final Battle Aang and Sokka.

Not sure what's going on with Black Hole Series 2, I know there was some work done.

As to Krull, it's probably a long shot (I'd be down), but ask the president in Ask DST: https://www,diamondselecttoys.com/ask-dst
