I was not aware of a ban on Rizzo, but I guess we'll see what we can make happen!

I don't believe Rizzo has been banned. They just haven't recast him yet. His performer was fired from the Jim Henson company a few years ago. Has little to nothing to do with the actual puppet. It has, at times, taken years to find a suitable replacement for one of the characters.

For instance, when Richard Hunt died it took them a very long time to feature Scooter again as a result.

Not sure if you can/are allowed to answer this question but why is pepe on the side of all of the boxes if he doesn't have a figure? He's my favorite muppet so I am not complaining or anything but I find it odd. . Is it a style guide thing?

Thank you for the answer. I love the box design. and it is cool to see pepe even if he's not included in the line. I was just kinda curious.

No problem, but you need Harry... he's a great figure!

I agree but I got into the line late (I didn't want to start over from palisades) and he wasn't in the best of assortments. Thank you for the help.
I do own the palisades crazy Harry and if I ever get the Dimond select one I'll be sure to find him a scalable bomb or stick of dynamite. I'll need to make a detenator too

DST have Sam the Eagle and Rizzo up for preorder on their site. But it’s $30 and the lowest shipping option is Surepost for $13. Couldn’t justify it for just the one set, so I’ll wait til other retailers are offering it (if they offer it).

I'm really psyched about this set finally coming out! Hopefully it does well so we can get some more new figures.
