beth47 just pointed out to me that, for 90 bux plus shippin' and handlin', FAO Schwarz will let you design your own Muppet.
I had to dig a bit on the site to find that yes, it's a full-on hand and rod puppet. (Sorry, no two-person Monsters or, er, Monsters of any kind.) Regardless, this concept is pretty awesome. Your finished version, at least, the finished online CGI-scripted construct you see at the end of the design process looks a little off (the round noses look kinda big) but I'm willing to bet the actual product has the proper proportions.
Now this, this is awesome, and for some reason now I've got Avenue Q songs stuck in my head.
Oh My....this could be ...
Red Shift: The Puppet Experience?

Long red hair + horn-rimmed glasses + leather jacket = reasonable facsimile. Can't decide on the right head/nose combo.

oh my, DO WANT!
Hm. And on my birthday, too.
Aaaaand you just found the perfect gift for my husband for christmas!
Holy crap, this is better than the Lego factory.
...It's actually kind of limited as to possibilities, relative to Lego's thing, but I can understand that.

So Much Want.

Wow! I just entertained my entire office for nearly 10 minutes trying out various permutations. Wicked cool.

Wow, the temptation is strong with this one. I don't need a muppet. (Just like I don't need the $300 production-class Kermit that's floating around out there.)
But oh lord, I do. :)

$90 seems incredibly cheap for a custom muppet. I may need to buy one for my bro-in-law
Well, they're not exactly manufactured--you just have to find the right combination of Muppets to have sex and wait the 4-6 week gestational period. They're like Hamsters that way.
Oh curse my lack of funds. :(
Want want want for my birthday!

All the girly hair is out of stock. :(
Oh lordy, I have found my purpose!
