Ok, so why aren't the Muppets figures selling as well as they could be then? You have 14 points of articulation, slews of accessories and the price isn't all that crippling in the states. They are all mostly classic household name recognisable characters except the few obscures we have seen. It would be exactly the same with Sesame, except Sesame is even more of a kids license. Face facts, Fun4All depend even more on greater sales than Palisades do, and even though they don't invest as much money into the products they throw more money at the licenses and getting all of the major bricks and mortar stores to carry their products. They aren't as specialist an action figure company as Palisades and don't specifically cater to the adult market. The only reason they bought the Sesame license was because they knew kids would buy the figures too, the adults are just a nice bonus. They aren't interested in just selling to adults as there isn't enough profit in it for a big company like them and seeing as the figures were already shown to adult comic stores through Diamond Distribution they probably found out for sure the adult market wasn't strong enough by itself and if thats all the interest they got they'd probably have to end the line at wave two. In my opinion it would be very tricky to do the whole high quality, slew of accessories, loads of articulation thing for adults yet get the figures stocked in kids stores retailing at a price acceptable to parents too. Quality costs money, which parents of a 5 year old generally wouldn't pay or even neccasarily want/need for their kids who just want a toy to play with so they have obviously had to make compromises right from the start. That's meant people here complaining that they aren't upto the quality of the Palisades Muppets and Fun4All getting negative reactions (which they are partly to blame for themselves i admit) but these are being made for a fairly different market than the Muppets are right now. It has to be that way and probably will not change despite what people say, they have just spent a long time trying to reach a compromise level in design where they aren't too shabby for adults yet are still within the reach of the kids market.
