Late last month, we gave you a photo report of the last Vinylmation artist release partywhich featured exclusive looks at some upcoming Vinylmation releases. On display there were several Muppets Vinylmation figures, presumably from Series 1 which is expected to be released at some point in 2010.
Today, we bring you a look at what’s purported to be the complete release of Vinylmation Muppets Series #1.
There are some interesting things to note here. First, the artwork shows 12 figures while usually a series is 11 figures plus a chaser (for a total of 12 anyway, but the chaser isn’t advertised). As a tray is 24 figures which is comprised of two complete sets plus a chaser and an extra, this implies that either the set is 12 pieces with no chaser at all or that the chaser is pictured above. Or that the artwork is a sham. Only time will tell.
Another interesting thing is that although we have first glimpses of Sweetums, Scooter, Janice (!), Beaker and ‘Tourist’ Kermit, we have the glaring omission of Miss Piggy who was on display at the event.
