Bork Bork Bork! This Swedish Chef Action Figure is Too Hot for the Kitchen...

Written by

I stand behind the fact that the late Palisades Toys' Muppets line was ahead of its time - one of the finest action figure lines of this century. I wish I'd picked up more than just a few, but what I did manage to get is played with regularly here at Rock Father™ HQ by our daughters - a fact that might appall a certain segment of collector. While there was a lull in Muppets goodness, the folks at Diamond Select Toys have picked up the torch with their own Muppets line, and now they're gearing up for the first-ever action figure gift set in the DST collection. Available for pre-order now via my affiliate, Entertainment Earth (and local Comic Shops), The Swedish Chef will hit the streets in early 2019, bringing with him a massive number of accessories!

The famous culinary mumbler comes complete with a table, pans, pots, food (talking and non-talking) and even a chicken, to make Chicken in the Basket. Packaged in a full-color window box, this figure is in scale to all Select action figures. Sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios! Pre-order now.

Bork bork bork, indeed!
