Lance Cardinal is a big Muppet fan. He is also a student at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, and a freelance set designer.
Nine years ago, Palisades Toys started releasing high-quality Muppet Show action figures. Lance bought 82 characters and all the playsets, including Swedish Chef’s kitchen and the Electric Mayhem concert stage. But before Palisades could release a Muppet Theatre Backstage Playset to hold all the characters, the company went out of business.
Sad about not having this last set piece, he decided to make his own. The result is stunning and beautiful. You can view it here on his website.
