It’s been a while since we’ve seen any new Muppet figures from Diamond Select. But don’t worry they just came back with a vengeance with the release of the Swedish Chef Deluxe set.

This set is just amazing. It comes packaged in a closable window box. The way he’s displayed in the box almost makes you want to keep him in there. I say almost, because toys are meant to be played with.

The Swedish Chef stands at 4 1/2 inches. The sculpt is pretty amazing. It really does look like a Muppet. Gentle Giant went all out on it. Tiny details on the face to give it that “felt” look. Really nice.  About 15 points of articulation too. Plus 2 sets of hands to grasp different items. 

The Chef comes with a ton of accessories. Most of it is kitchen utensils which makes sense. There’s some cool stuff like Muppet vegetables and bread. Plus a table to put it all on. And of course a chicken!

Now I’ve heard rumors that this is the last hurrah for the Muppet action figure. I hope it isn’t true, as I’d love to see more Muppets figures. If it is true, this is one hell of a way to go out.

You can find the Muppets Action Figures Swedish Chef Deluxe Gift Set at your local comic shop or buy directly at Diamond Select here.
