We've talked before about the heartbreaking loss of all the cool stuff Palisades had planned for their Muppets line. Well, prepare to feel the pain again, because today we have another wretched example.
This one is made only slightly better by the fact that it is a completely handmade custom display piece. While it might have been scratch-built by one amazing fan, Palisades did have something similar in the works at one point. Would it have been as awesome as this? Maybe not: if you look around on that site, you'll see that the same guy also improved the already-quite-awesome Backstage Playset, so it's inconceivable that what Palisades delivered would live up to this custom.
But really, isn't that how it always works? The things we imagine can never live up to reality, so in our heads there's some Platonic ideal of what the Muppet Theatre Playset would have been, had Palisades been able to push it out; this custom will make you ache for what might have been. Take a deep breath before you go, and prepare for a piece that might just bring a tear to your eye.
