    Mulch is one I never thought of but now I really want to do that. He is both a classic and modern character which is nice. Not sure on the height. Will have to look at MT episodes.

    As for progress.....yes and no. Yes because I finally got the 3d printed joints back and I believe they will work just fine for a ball joint neck, ball jointed shoulders, and elbows. Wrist articulation proved a bit too small to print right. Legs will not move for looks reason and to keep it simple. They really don't need to move anyway.

    No progress on anything else. I had some work related issues that took up almost all my free time. Good news is that starting Sunday I should have a week where I can ease up at work a bit and then the next week I'm on vaca so I will try to catch up on everything for fozzie and get sal off the ground and maybe pump out the aliens since they are easy and won't be articulated. We'll see.

    I haven't even had time to see muppets most wanted yet. :(

    Can't wait to see. Definitely agree that Sal doesn't need any articulation on the legs looking at the prototype of him It doesn't look like palisades was going to it either. Also I did kind an another image of scale where he is standing next to Uncle Deadly which could also help. Here's a little old link to the image.


    Also has anyone seen this image looks like a prototype of the naked Robin which could help if you ever make that.

    That Robin looks perfect if only it was massively produced

    Very true shame naked Robin never made it but glad we got Robin in the line. Seems like they were trying on making the last exclusive OMGCAFO Sal and naked Robin and they were so close. So was the whole Sesame Street line so close to getting them figures especially those Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster figures.

    I can't stop thinking of suggetions the Snerfs would a fun addition and would Seymour and of course Angus McGonagle he would of been a random and awesome addition.

    We actually were planning on articulation, just so you know. In the legs and a lot of other places. Always remember the painted protos were just the start of things. We did a lot of work after that with engineering in some joints.

    This photo is a stage one factory gypsum model. I call it stage one because we hadn't gone in to do any fine tuning on it yet. There was more work to do on likeness and more articulation to add in, more work to do in fur, etc. It was as basic as basic gets. I don't know that I ever showed this.

    Just seeing this thread for the first time now. Man, that Fozzie is amazing! I would definitely be interested in seeing and paying for a Sal as well as some of the other characters mentioned. So cool!

    Ken is back! I still feel bad for all the flack and headache Ken and company often got by everyone on here:)

    Yeah, ten years after the end of the Palisades line, Sal was the main figure that almost was but never came to be that irks me for not happening.
