    Hmmm, must be time for the monthly relisting again. I'm currently putting my collection back in order at the mo', the SST playset facade and/or Count prototype are among my Holy Grails.

    Count, do you actually have the Playset and Count Prototype? Wow!
  4. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Sadly, not yet. What I meant to say is that I'm shooting to get either or both. The Count proto would be more beneficial for personal plans I make in my nowhere land.

    How cool! Well, good luck! It seems like he's had The Count for sale on eBay before, if I'm not mistaken... I distinctly remember the SST Playset being on there, though! The one with Oscar, and the his backdrop...he had it listed at $4,999.99 I think!

    I'll keep an eye out if I see either one pop-up anywhere again! :batty:

    Has anyone actually bought one of these things? I remember someone bought Sal, and Gobo prototypes. But I believe the prices were a bit lower back then. These seem more like what I call museum ebay listings. Meaning theyre more meant to simply look at, rather than actually buy.

    NOW, when it comes to store, convention exclusive, or rare actually released Palisades toys; corndog collectibles kicks butt. Shipping is always free, and the prices are pretty good. Invader Zim, Muppets, Cartoon Network, early 2000's video game stuff...he still has a lot of good deals.

    Wow, I had no idea that the Palisades collection would have extended to Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock, had it continued! That would have made this incredible line even more rich and wonderful.

    In some ways, I regret that I never bought into this toy line since the figures were exquisitely sculpted and painted. But the sheer quantity of variants and exclusives was very off-putting to me, since the completist in me could never "collect 'em all." These prototypes seem to further that conviction, knowing that even if I had somehow managed to acquire all the many and varied official releases, my collection would still be "incomplete" due to the existence of these gorgeous prototypes.

    Anyway, thanks for the heads-up on these and I'm glad I got to check them out!

    Beaker, I bought a few of the Muppets prototypes (not Sesame Street). I bought the Mini Muppets Rowlf Prototype and a few of the less-expensive ones (Rizzo, Beaker).

    I'm still trying to find some Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock prototypes that I can afford. I was lucky to get my hands on an unpainted Two-Headed Monster and an early Ernie prototype (but not from Ken) but I'd really really like to find Elmo.

    I know how ya feel, so that's why I mainly concentrated on getting "just the main line", you know, one figure from each series plus the playsets, I stayed away from re-paints for the most part (I spent almost $100 on Zoot in his trademark yellow shirt, I don't see the need to spend more on him wearing a red shirt that I don't think he ever wore on the show or in the movies haha). I do have all the Lips repaints and all the Johnny repaints mainly because I wanted the different accessories that came with each.

    I do have a ton of exclusives though, mainly ones I could find on eBay for a reasonable price. I'm not even gonna concern myself with trying to get the wedding set or white tux Rowlf and really rare items like that lol.

    I happened across a "White Tux Rowlf" a few years ago and got him for a very low price.

    Same thing for "Dream Date Gonzo" and many of the convention of exclusives. There were not terribly expensive from what I recall.

    Though I would love to get a Fraggle prototype or even the fully painted Gobo prototype! :)

    Hey all! Just saw this thread. Ken has had most of the same protos listed for some time now. The majority of them are the same ones he's had for, if I had to guess, over a year now. His prices have gone up on certain items because he really doesn't want to let them go BUT everything has a price. He told me once that he prices certain protos, like the SS playset for example, extremely high because he wants to have no regretful feelings losing it out of his collection.
    I have a respectable collection of both Muppet protos as well as the Sesame Street protos and most of them came from Ken. Soren got his two SS protos from me a while ago when I was thinning out my collection. Glad to hear you still have them, buddy! As of right now I have...
    FEP Ernie (w/case and all acessories)
    FEP Oscar (w/case and almost all acessories)
    FEP Two-Headed Monster (w/case and almost all acessories)
    Paint Master Guy Smiley
    Paint Master Ernie
    Unpainted (Sculpting Pattern) Signature Grover
    "Toilet Head" Animal
    Proto Signature Rowlf
    Checkered Suit Mega Gonzo

    If I get a chance this weekend, I'll try to get them out of the curio and get a picture of all of them together.

    Hey Count, I know I ask you a lot but any chance of you wanting to sell your MOC SS figs? ;)

    Sorry Tim, but no. And they're not MOC, they're loose with all accessories. As a matter of fact, I've got my Muppet Theater, Muppet Labs, and Swedish Kitchen display shelves finally propped up. It's a work in progress, so I'm stalling in getting the other shelves finished.
    So you know... Ernie's got his banana in his ear standing next to Kermit at his desk. 2HM's behind the brick wall next to the theater. The Muppet letters flank the hecklers' chairs' legs. Super Grover's standing with the other Supergoofs outside Muppet Labs. Oscar's parked by the kitchen as a special guest of the tuxedoed wedding party.

    Maybe someday when it's all done I'll get the balones to negotiate with Ken for the playset and/or Count prototype.

    Awesome, Count. You def need to take some pics of that. You did get the clamshells from Tink, right? I'm assuming they are packed away?
    As for The Count figure, I'm not 100% sure Ken has that one. I talked to him a while ago and he said he was working on getting some of the potential series 2 figs but he was unsucessful. Of course, that was at least a year ago so things may have changed.

    Yeah, it's possible the shells are with some other MIB items in our laundry room area, which is part of my bedroom. Will probably find them as progress on setting up the rest of the collection continues.

    The Sesame Street figures are incredible! I so wish this line could've been produced...:sympathy:
