    Maybe Disney could help their Licensee by selling the figures at Disney Parks and Disney shopping on line.:wisdom:

    Ouch.. not even getting the whole Electric Mayhem out :(

    I thought some of these looked cool, but it was never anything I felt I HAD to get.. for several reasons. I have a (for the most part) complete Palisades collection, and also trying to be more responsible with money... and of course trying to reduce clutter and I don’t even have space for them.

    The best thing we got out of this line was Statler & Waldorf WITH their balcony

    I haven't gotten my notice, but it sells cancelled on Entertainment Earth, too. I also don't want to give up hope. I have emailed Diamond to see if they are still planning an alternative method of distribution such as direct-selling. Will let you all know if they respond.

    They have responded saying that they are still looking into alternative methods of distribution. I asked what we fans can do at this time and they said nothing at the moment, but they will put out a call for support at some point in the future, and we can respond then. So everyone be on the lookout and keep your fingers crossed!

    Maybe if they weren’t so half arsed about getting each series out there would of been more interest I’m guessing???
    Way too long a wait between waves which I’m positive wouldve had an impact. I got so bored of waiting I’d given up hope. Let down by Diamond Select to be honest, if I new we weren’t going to get all four waves as promised, and even worse that we can’t complete the Electric Mayhem I wouldn’t have bothered from the start and would’ve kept my Palisades!

    Hey Hey, The Swedish Chef at least will be made, around the fourth quarter. I just got a pre order through BDTS.

    Hey, everyone, yes, we are offering Chef as a single Select figure to try to roll these out one at a time. If orders are strong for Chef, I imagine we will move forward with another Muppet after that. So I encourage everyone to pre-order.

    Currently, it appears only BBTS has the listing up, but more retailers should follow (hopefully!). I'll probably get it up on our web store (diamondselecttoys.com) once everything is in order, we are very interested in getting this series out.

    Hopefully everyone thinks getting Series 4 is worth the investment of a $25 pre-order for each figure, even if this is the last series. (Although who knows, if each figure is a success, anything is possible. We have a couple of lines where we rolll out one figure at a time that have been going for years.)

    I'm sorry if I came across as thin-skinned and defensive at any point, I'm not sure what this is in reference to, but it was certainly not my intention. Aside from a couple of engineering missteps like the drums, I think the quality on these figures is quite high.

    That is exactly the problem, Diamond Previews can distribute, but they did not gather enough orders for the CASE ASSORTMENT (6 figures), and without Toys"R"US, the numbers were too low to realistically produce. $150 is a big investment, even at wholesale prices, so we are trying it with a single figure, which stores can order any number of. You can even order it through your local comic shop to (most likely) save on shipping. Find a store at comicshoplocator.com
