The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History’

The new live interactive Muppet show The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History will open October 2nd at Walt Disney World! 
From The Disney Parks blog:
Great news for all you Muppets fans out there! Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and The Great Gonzo arrive at Magic Kingdom Park on October 2 for the opening of their all-new, live show “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.” Hosted by James “J.J.” Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, and Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, this wacky new show is set to take place several times daily, just outside The Hall of Presidents. 
Throughout the day, J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor. At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.

According DISboards, showtimes will be 9:05, 9:15, 10:00, 10:15, 11:45, 11:55am, 12:10, 1:15, 1:25, 2:20, 3:35, 3:45, 4:25, and 4:35pm.

So you'll have multiple chances each day to see the Muppets take on either "Declaration of Independence " or "The Ride of Paul Revere."  Perhaps other Muppet history lessons will added soon as well!

Dark Crystal ReAction Figures Coming Soon!!

After 34 years a line of Dark Crystal action figures will finally be released!

As we told you back in April, Funko's been hard at work sculpting new figures based Kenner's never released line of figures for The Dark Crystal.


We now have the final shots of the figures and packaging!






Not only does Jen come with a shard, but the other figures comes with a piece to build The Dark Crystal itself!

It looks like Rowlf may have had his face slightly lightened, but it's Animal that changed the most  - he'll actually has a nose!

As you recall, that's the one thing that really need to be corrected, and it looks like Disney got the message!
