    You know your right. Nothing with Sludge. I know Hasbro is having troubles with the name Trailbreaker. I'm also wondering about the names of SeaSpray,Pipes,Huffer. Haven't hear those names in a long time.

    Those are great toys! I am limiting myself to Disney action figures so I don't spiral out of control. Love them though!

    What makes the Tonner dolls so much more expensive? I can see that they put a lot of effort into getting the right look for characters, but the clothes don't seem all that more more intricate than the collector dolls that Mattel has released before. Some are very simple, like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. I do have to admit, I really want the Miss Piggy doll, but that's a lot to pay for one of them!

    There's a lot to a Tonner Doll. First, its size. They're about 14" tall. That's pretty big. The rooted hair is not something to skip over. It's pretty fancy stuff. And the clothing is really intricate, thicker, better fabric than what Mattel uses for Barbie.

    Also, the Tonner Dolls are limited in number, not for mass market retail so they don't make as many. Thus, making them more costly to produce in the long run.

    Ah, thanks for the explanation. I guess it helps to see these dolls in person. I went to their website and saw that they had a few Miss Piggy dolls, and the prices aren't as bad as some of the larger dolls. I might just save up and buy her!

    They've been around... since 1991 I think. But only recently started doing recognizable characters.
