Build A Bear Workshop has announced they are not planning to add Meatlug to their How To Train Your Dragon line of plush toys

 

 

If Meatlug fans let Build A Bear know that we're dissapointed by this news and we want a Meatlug plush, there may be a chance we could change their mind!

They can't make a line of dragons and exclude one of the characters!

 

They can be contacted by emailing:

guest.services@buildabear.com

 

Let them know that Meatlug is wanted!

And sorry, I had no idea what topic to put this under since it's unrelated to school of dragons but still releated to httyd

No! Bad Tigerus and Euphrates!!! Do not eat my subject!!

This is an outrage! Meatlug would be the best build-a-bear dragon there is!(I say dragon because I have the sugar puppy (that don't sell it anymore) named Bella and I'm partial to her;-) She is so freaking adorable!!! I don't have any of the dragons and want them but I refuse to buy them if they sing add Meatlug. Period.

I heard that ya peeps don't like it when people have a ton of pictures because it uses more data, so I put my signature in a Google Document. Plus, it's easier for ms to edit then. 

 

So just click the link if you actually care.

While I wouldn't really call

While I wouldn't really call myself a "fan" of the main 5 dragons, it's sad to see her get excluded. Gronckles are cute too, and they're like big bulldogs :3

Is there any reason as to why they aren't adding Meatlug? I'm guessing it'd be because of its somewhat ugly design, but it's odd that they'd exclude one of the main dragons for such a reason, if it's correct.

Meatlug and Fishlegs both

Meatlug and Fishlegs both seem to be excluded from the majority of the dragons merchandise and I'm thinking it's because they're seen as the "chubby unlikeable" characters which is totally not accurate or fair

So they think that Meatlug stuff wont sell so they dont make it...

Meatlug had also been exluded

Meatlug had also been exluded from the dragons line of funko pop figures, although she did appear in the funko pop mystery minis series

NOOO! My innocent marshmallows! I think they seriously need more love. Am I the only one who finds Fishlegs completely lovable? x3 

 

I agree, though I probably won't buy anything like that, the world needs a Meatlug plushie.

Odin is a salty little pringle~★

What? Noooooo D:

Why exclude Meatlug? A Gronckle would make the best plush! Chubby and huggable! This is OUTRAGE!

Especially since baby gronckles are one, if not THE cutest baby version of dragon species.

We must demand gronckle equality >:(

RALLY THE TROOPS!

Plus, why break up the gang? Ya can't have a line of character themed plushes without having them ALL there. It doesn't make sense!

I hope we can make a difference, I'd hate for them to leave out Meatlug :(

Hai.

Welcome to my signature.

Since I am a person who is very, very lazy I (at this time) don't feel like making my siggy "fancy"

So, here's some stuff 'bout me.

I am a girl.

I like the color Blue/teal.

My favorite dragon class is Boulder Class.

 my main dragon(s) are a Screaming Death named Odin, and a Skrill named Jayfeather.

I love Doctor Who, Merlin, Chuck, Physch, Harry Potter, The Kane Chronicles, and other nerd-y things.

My favorite Httyd dragons whose names start with the letter s are Screaming Deaths, Shivertooths, Skrills, Scauldrons, Smothering Smokebreaths, Snafflefangs, Shovelhelms, Sword Stealers, Snifflehunches (+Sneezelhunches) and Seashockers! (that's alot!)

And I am usually friendly :D

In-game name is: IIicedragonII (No, not lice dragon. Those are capital i's not l's. And you simply pronounce it as "Ice dragon")

Friend code: hmm.. P.M. me if you want it. Can't take any chances o3o

And I'm a proud member of The Phantom Lords! (ROAAAAAAAAR!)

I'm also a proud member of the recently-made forum clan The Sisterhood of Clams!

"We aren't perfect! We're women! We take what we want!"

I'll probably post some bios about my dragons, but I'm too lazy to do it right now XP

Check out the dragon fight club! It's a cool sort of 'event' area where we stick dragons head-to-head on eachother and vote/see which would win in a fight!

 

Currently there's a tournament going on! Which side are you on?

Fire..

Or..

Ice..

Personally..

Team ice FTW!

 

 

Lil' short:

Jayfeather: C'mon friend, this thing won't hurt anyone!

Odin: I do not have time to mess around with strange objects.

Jayfeather: Look, just hold still.

-Seawings makes sure to not be in the shot of the camera-

-click-

Jayfeather: Aha! Got it. Ahh fish paste, my wing was in it..

Odin: Hand that over this minute! I... want to see if you got my good side..

Jayfeather: HA!

Seawings: G-guys lets just bring this thing to Ice, o-okay?

Odin: GIVE ME THE PICTURE!!

Jayfeather: YOU'LL HAVE TO FIGHT ME FOR IT!!

Odin: GIVE IT HERE YOU EEL WITH WINGS OR AM I GONNA HAVE TO-

-Jayfeather flew off chuckling-

-Odin roared after him-

-Seawings whimpers and decides to follow-

(Funny picture of Odin and Jayfeather by Wutend Bonfire!)

I'm hoping we can change their mind too

It's such a shame since I know that a lot of people had been looking forward to getting this plush!

Oh, come on, seriously? Don't exclude her, just because you don't think she's 'cool' enough! Clearly, Build-A-Bear doesn't respect the amazingness that is Meatlug. This is injustice, people!

This is made me cry and atm I'm crying for real. Just because Meatlug and its dragon species is underrated, that doesn't mean they should wipe the whole thing out completely. I mean, yeah, there are still some fans and they have chances to buy the plushie. This is worse than racist for me.

The HTTYD fan population is a bunch of millions. If, for example, there are 60 million fans, the 20 millions of them are actually fans of Gronkles and/or Meatlug herself. They're forgetting something major! Everyone in the world have got different tastes, for example, I love talking about fish, therefore others love talking about frogs. That doesn't mean I should just live alone under a rock.

 

I think both sides are having an advantage if our words are heard. We'll be far more satisfied, and in return, their income will be increased now and then. Am I not right? Dare to say so.

I sent an email too. I

I sent an email too. I personally prefer Meatlug over Hookfang and Hookfang is seen as one of the "cool" dragons. It's ashame she gets this treatment from "business people."
