    In case you don't check the "ask ken" thread regularly... he has again called for people to email their interest in collecting the show exclusives. The last time Palisades did something like this was for the dr. teeth repaint and only 12 people responded.

    Now I realize not everyone here is going to chase every repaint but you have to admit, the vanishing cream variant is pretty cool... If enough of us express an interest, we can get our hands on him without paying outrageous prices! Those of you getting your hands on the main line now realize how ridiculously awesome these figures are and might be a little more excited about collecting the exclusives. But even if you just want the one, your support would also help out those completists among us who love to collect everything. The email to express your interest is below... don't let another opportunity pass you by!

    I emailed him the second I saw post the first time!

    I don't care about many of the exclusives, but this one is a little different as it is:

    a.) Really Cool!
    b.) Has "playablility" factor to it!

    I'm not big on varients and exclusives, but this one is pretty darn tooting cool!

    Thanks for posting this here where more people are likely to see it-- very good idea! It's easy to miss something in all the activity on the Ask Ken thread.

    No problem, it's my pleasure...

    I just hope we get more of a response this time. If we can't "rally the troops" here, then I don't suppose we can anywhere.

    Hmm, I must have been temporarily in a cave;) What is the comic con exclusive Vanishing Cream Beaker again?(info, pix, description?)

    Vanishing cream beaker will be offered at the Wizard World Chicago show happening July 5 - 7

    The top half of him will be clear and the bottom the normal colors. The idea being that he is in mid-vanish transition.

    Here is a link to a small picture that gives you an idea what he looks like:

    That Beaker looks so cool !

    I sent Ken an email, And i think everyone else should too.
    This is like a whole new Figure, I just cant wait to stand Bunsen and the Vanishing Beaker next to eachother!

    My Bunsen is getting lonely, He cant understand Dr Teeths 'Hip' talk !


    I got my Series One!

    See ya

    I email Ken too, not sure if he got it though, I know a lot of other people have contacted him as well. I think that the difference in the figure and the fact that the line is out now will help generate a larger response.

    Yeah, that is a neat technique(having a clear see thru plastic)
    Any word if he'll come with his own blister card, accessories, or just a plastic bag?

    I really like done of Ken's ideas he had awhile back, about a smaller Beaker pvc and shrink ray.

    I would imagine it will be packaged like the other figures if the Dr. teeth exclusive is any indication. Ken has mentioned that he will come with a tube of vanishing cream as an accessory.

    He will be in a window box that has a small j-hook header card. Very nice...

  13. BlueFrackle

    BlueFrackle Well-Known Member


    Will he have any Accesories ?

    I would think a tub or tube of Vanishing Cream, Maybe a square hand held mirror ?

    See ya

    Thanks for posting this here.

    The "Ask Ken" thread tends to get piled up, and messages tend to be lost (and I missed the whole e-mail Ken if you like the Dr. Teeth thing. However, I was lucky enough to get the Dr. Teeth repaint at the low-low price of $18!)...

    Must have Vanishing Cream Beaker...

    I e-mailed him. So does this mean I will defently be getting one? Cause Im kinda confused since Im new here and all. :)

    Hey Aerosmith,

    Welcome to the forum!

    You should get an email reply from Ken soon... He sent out a reply to everyone who responded and I suspect he will for you soon.

    Unfortunately, the answer to your question is a vague "maybe..." The idea of emailing him is so that he and the company can guage what interest there is for exclusives to be offered directly from the company.

    They did this once before with the dr. teeth exclusive and they only got 12 responses so there was no direct offering. However, this time we all know what happened and hopefully, we can get enough people excited about this to warrant palisades to offer the exclusives to us. If you know anyone else who would be interested in this, by all means get them to email Ken.

    They should only do this if they are serious about buying the exclusives though.

    Ken goes into more detail about how this would likely work so I'll just let you hear from him about it.

    Oh ok the reason I was asking is because my friend is picking me one up and didnt want to cause him trouble if this is a definite thing. Ill still have him pick it up for me just in case. Also thanks for the welcome I have been a Muppet fan all my life. And have always been wanting figures I picked up two from the series thursday and keep slaping my self cause I think its all a dream. :)
