Awesome Palisades Muppet Theatre Playset
The Muppets hold a special place in the hearts of many people, and even today, it is not surprising to find people of all ages who smile in this goofy way when talking about Jim Henson’s creations. I have to be honest. I grew up watching these adorable puppets, but I cannot be considered a Muppets geek. While I am not sure if such a term officially exists, if it does, then Lance Cardinal of Vancouver more than qualifies. This guy created his own Muppet Theatre Playset from scratch!
I don’t know if you are familiar with a toy company called Palisades that created Muppet Show Character figures almost a decade ago, but they stopped production in 2006. They also released some playsets, but many toys which were in the works never materialized due to the company’s bankruptcy. Being the Muppets enthusiast that he is, Lance Cardinal decided to go ahead and create his own playset.
The result? Something that belongs to our Dept. of Awesomeness! Here are a few images Lance’s blog entry about the completed project. ((Lance’s Blog))
Looking at those images, you will not be able to help but notice the attention to detail. I may not know much about the playsets that Palisades has released, but Lance’s work looks nothing but professional, don’t you think? If this project has impressed the Muppet fan in you, then you should follow what Lance is doing as he is planning on creating more in the future (Musicians pit for Muppet Theatre, box seats for Statler and Waldorf, opening arches for Muppet Theatre, Muppet Labs (From TV series, not the Palisades Muppet 3D version), Fozzie’s comedy Backdrop, and Vetrinarians Hospital – to name a few).
