    I thought this would be a good way to do a Fraggle line.

    I wish that were a real line up, I'd collect every figure :smirk: :excited:

    I love the idea of the Doozer packs with connecting pieces. I'd especially like action figures of the three Gorg's. Those would be cool.

    If I could decide what figures to put out, this is what i'd do...

    Series One
    Gobo
    Wembeley
    Uncle Travelling Matt
    Sprocket
    Doozer Set 1

    Large Talking Fraggle Figure: Boober

    Series Two
    Mokey
    Red
    Cantus
    The Trash Heap
    Doozer Set 2

    Large Talking Fraggle Figure: Gobo

    Series 3
    Boober
    Gobo Variant
    World's Oldest Fraggle
    Junior Gorg (w/ Mini Fraggle's, since they wont be in scale to the figures)
    Doozer Set 3

    Large Talking Fraggle Figure: Wembely

    Series 4
    Wembely Variant
    Red Variant
    Large Marvin
    Ma Gorg
    Doozer Set 4

    Large Talking Fraggle Figure: Mokey

    Series 5
    Gobo Variant 2
    Mokey Variant
    The Storyteller
    Pa Gorg
    Doozer Set 5

    Large Talking Fraggle Figure: Red

    Thoughts about scale- would it not be simpler, instead of making the Gorgs to scale with the Fraggle figures and thus too large to be displayed, to include miniature Fraggles along with the Gorgs? They used miniature Fraggles on the show to achieve scale with the Gorgs, so the Gorgs could come with mini representations of the Fraggle five, just like the Fraggles could come with Doozers (perhaps mini representations of same and then sell larger Doozers with moving parts, machinery, and buildable towers?)

    Again, just my thoughts.

    On the Season Three interviews, designer Bill Beeton said that Doozer sticks would've made a great toy- was there ever such a toy in existence? Should there be pending the release of the Fraggle Rock movie?

    And maybe a 'Doozer sticks' rock candy kit with different recipes?

    All about the tie-ins, baby!

    Remember to many Variants is what hurt the Muppets Toy line not all the people buy both and you could have peg warms that why you want to spead out the main Fraggles then to do them all at once. It keep the line moveing then peg warming. and remember more than likey you will only get 2 series a year so that means 6 Convention pices, 7 Store Pices, a year. Thats a lot of figures.

    It wasn't the variants that hurt the Muppets line, it was the low price point and so many darn expensive accessories.

    Believe it or not, some of the best sculpts of good characters warmed pegs. Beauregard is still very much around comic shops! He is definitely in the top 5 sculpts of the line, if not the best. Many Swinetreks are collecting dust and Muppet Labs lingered for ages. Variants are a way to make more money from an existing sculpt - they're a no-brainer to make money and the Muppet variants did. Now reissuing characters and new sculpts for them proved to be challenging in some cases. The line could have done with some more regularly pegged Animal and Beaker variants and repaints. Those would have sold big, but the decision makers didn't get that. :smirk:

    I stand by my support for that Fraggle line-up. Not perfect, but better than any of the ones I proposed a while back. :excited:

    Do the pictures that Palisade had on their site still exist? He looks about the same but I still wanna take pictures for the joy of... it. :smirk:

    :coy: Here's a picture from the Wiki! :smirk:

    Keep in mind that Ken and the Palisades team were still working on major revisions especially in the hair department. This prototype (while extremely cool and pretty) is probably only 75% of what it would have been. Ken was really keen on pushing the envelope and trying to pin down things like Muppet hair rather than make a big plastic gob. Every figure taught the Palisades team something new. If this Gobo had ever been finished it would have likely been even better than the Muppet Show line of action figures. :excited:
  16. Foodie

    Foodie Active Member

    Exactly. The prototype is definitely not at the finished stage. It's painted but they didn't do all the stripes on his sleeves and they hadn't given him the texture on his " skin " either. The hair I'm sure would've been handled differently too I'm sure. Actually, my guess is that he's a prototype of a prototype. Compared to Palisades Muppet figures, if that Gobo was the final product, he'd fall way short of their established eye for including every detail possible. He is incredible to have though. :smirk:
  17. frogboy4

    frogboy4 Inactive Member

    I drool over that Gobo like I do over Oscar, Ernie and Big Bird from Sesame's nixed line.

    You're right that the beautiful figure you have is still an early prototype. The points I remember that were up for revision were particularly hair (soften and feather), face (tweak proportions around mouth and nose), a slight tweak in height, minor color alterations and the final addition of texture.

    This was so special because Ken really wanted to add to the Muppets line before the Disney sale and Henson actually said yes to this. The hope was to one day have the Fraggle five and some Doozer packs. However, even if released, successful and the Disney sale didn't happen there was still a likelyhood that Gobo would have been a one-shot deal. That's the best I can remember it. Might have gotten a few details wrong. :coy:

    Still can't believe you have that bad boy. I'm jealous! Very. :)
  18. Foodie

    Foodie Active Member

    Yeah. I printed up the images from that article to drool over. Must've drooled enough I guess. I find it hard to believe I have the thing still. :smirk:

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    :wisdom: Was the Big Bird sculpt ever finished? That's the only SST figure Palisades made I'm missing, if it was ever completed. Need to find Slimey and Rubber Duckie though. And you guys would love Oscar, even owing to the toughness of detaching and/or reattaching his arms.

    And all this time, I thought it was an Irving Legend.

    That's the kind of story your Uncle Irving will tell you.

    Anyway, it's a real shame they never got the chance to release series 10, especially with this figure. Once they finished the hair, and added in the flocking texturing this figure would have really sung.

    You gotta hand it to those dudes. They really gave the fans what they wanted, and did a beautiful job doing it.
