I've been sitting on a few Muppet Toys for a while and after finding that Super Grover figure, I've decided it's time to open them. One of the ones I was searching for was Super Scooter. If I remember correctly this costume is from the Lynda Carter episode where some of the Muppets decide to become Superheroes and learn how to fly. To that end Super Scooter comes with a ladder to jump off of and a book which basically took its lesson from flight from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
It is awesome, combining my love of the Muppets with my love of superheroes. I'm really digging the low budget interpretation of Scooter's costume. You can easily see his normal clothes underneath his vest. Actually the helmet, with a lightning bolt going all the way through it ala the arrow through the head, is pretty elaborate for this homebrew costume.
It almost makes me want to make an official "Hero" costume for my "Action Ranger Timmy" blogging persona.
