I think we need them!
I don't know where it's at, but Palisades posted their Gobo Fraggle prototype figure online some time back.
Here's a pic of Gobo...
Hmm...it looks cool but the head and hair are a bit off. How come they never went along with it if they were going to make figures?
Yeah, the figure needed alot of work.
Palisades didn't make the figure because Disney purchsed the Muppets before JHC could agree to have Gobo put in a special 2-pack with a Muppet fig.
Was Fraggle Rock included in the deal when Disney bought the Muppets? Who owns Fraggle Rock?
Well, The Jim Henson Company still owns Fraggle Rock, but HIT! Entertainment currently owns it for DVD's.
Fraggle figures would be neat, I dunno how long the line would last though since the cast of characters isn't as large as say Sesame Street or The Muppet Show. And you couldn't really do any variations since the Fraggles never change their clothes. Still, I would love to see it.
Actually the fraggles donned several different costumes throughout the series; yeah, just for 1 scene or episode lotsa times, but still...but then we do have "fraggle jammies" variations, too. They just wouldn't be as well-known as TMS ones (except to hard-core fans who've seen a good hunk o' the series).
If they did make 'em though, I'd love me a "Trash Heap Mokey" from the episode "New Trash Heap In Town"!
He's cool, but he looks more like Nigel then
Bryan dude! You want Fraggle figures... So do we all. But saying there's not a wealth of characters? Well, maybe not to the extent of the super heavyweights like SS and TMS with their international versions and specials and alike...
But if you want, I can import/post the fictional lineup I created here. Or send it to you personally. Or tell you the thread to go to so you can check out.
LMK, we'll talk later.
Dern right I wanna see Fraggle figs...
Even if they were a small run, with two waves, it would be more than perfect.

Trust me, if Sesame Street was possible, there's always a possibility of FR figures in 2007.
I know Ed(The Count) posted his dream list here somewhere, but I can't find it, so I thought I'd give you people a taste of my Fraggle dream line...
Gobo Fraggle w/ two Doozers, a stack of postcards, a map, a removable backpack, and a Doozer construction
Red Fraggle w/ Cotterpin Doozer, Cotterpin's trike, a flute, a towel, and a Doozer construction
Large Marvin Fraggle w/ Fenie Fraggle and crackers
The World's Oldest Fraggle w/ throne, and Fraggle horn
Marjorie the Trash Heap w/ Philo and Gunge
Boober Fraggle w/ two Doozers, laundry basket, socks, lucky walking stick, and Doozer construction
Wembley Fraggle w/ two Doozers, yo-yo, basket of radishes, and Doozer construction
Convincing John w/ two singing Fraggles
Cantus Fraggle w/ magic pipe, and bug minstrel(I don't know his name, but it's the one that looks like a giant cockroach...)

Mokey Fraggle w/ two Doozers, paint brush, easel, radishes, and Doozer construction
Uncle Traveling Matt Fraggle w/ removable backpack, garden gnome, removable hat, notepad, pen, and postcard
Brio and Brool Minstrels w/ instruments, and a whatnot Fraggle
Green Minstrel(I don't know his name) w/ instrument, and two whatnot Fraggles
JUMBO Jr. Gorg (this would have to be like 5 times the size of the other figures...)
Trash Heap Mokey
Purple Jacket Gobo (season 1)
Boober without hat
Wembley with rolled eyes
Good list, Ryan! I think I would have thrown in Gobo's guitar and Boober's blues harp (harmonica).
You want I shoulds post it again here?
Yes please Ed!
No exclusives though unless they're obtainable. I hate exclusives.
I am sure I remember when the photo of this figure was first shown on Palisades site that were planning on just putting one Gobo in each case, they were not going to tell anyone so it would be a surprise when you went to buy that Series. Cant remember what series they were going to do it with though.
Fraggle Line would be great. Make Fraggle Figures!!!!
Yup! That was uplifting yet disheartening at the same time. I printed up those pics for my fraggle scrapbook.
