    They look pretty good! Especially Oscar.....I can't wait for him. The only one that looks a bit off to me is Ernie. Is he taller and thinner than Ernie should be, or is it my imagination? :p

    It's not your imagination, Ernie does look a little tall and skinny for Ernie. It would help to see what they would make Bert look like in proportion to Ernie. Other than that, they're really cool!

    Oscar especially excites me. :grouchy: Not much to add except that I still think Ernie should have been pegged with Bert. Poor lonely Ernie. I'll keep him company! :p :(

    Glad to see that even Jamie's here and has seen the S1 pics. Ernie too lonely by himself in S1? Not to worry, he won't have that long to wait. The proposed S2 lineup has his roomie Bert as one of the two anchors.
    Now then, where's an icon of my namesake to express my excitement over S2?

    Bert in wave two- I figured. Ah, get it? Figured. Wocka Wocka! Okay, punishing myself for that one! Get it? PUN-ish. :o I'll stop now.

    One of the things I like about Ernie is his body. Maybe he could be fatter, but he looks darn close to me. Expecting the hair on these little guys to be fluffier (as always). Seems to be the last refinement they do.

    Jonezing over Oscar. Hope to see Slimey too!! :grouchy: :D

    Well since noone really posted this, the Series 2 line-up is as followed:

    Count Von Count
    Yip-Yip Martians
    Roosevelt Franklin

    and Big Bird is also in the works as well.

    1) Does anyone have a release date for Wave 1?

    2) Are the 123 Brownstone and Big Bird's house going to be released as playsets, or are they for this particular display only?

    You know, you could take a Palisades Kermit the Frog and stick him on the street.

    Then you could pretend it was the Sesame Street of yesteryear.

    :) That's what I'm planning. I also would like to see an Orange Oscar exclusive. Maybe with a golden garbage can just for variety. :grouchy: Heck, I'll probably get some extra penguins for my Sesame display.

    I also wonder if the windows on the sets will be transparent to enable display of characters through the windows.

    Can't wait to see how they handle Big Bird (the most poorly represented SS character in terms of likeness). I know they'll do him proud.

    Ooooh, and Roosevelt too. Love that little guy. ;)

    These had to be the coolest Toy Fair pix next to Zim...I mena Palisades: Muppets, Sesame, Invader Zim...does it get any better? Well yes, if they could release that Gobo figure they made...but!

    Wow, so cool. Love the diorama thing. Tho Ernie man, whats up with him? He needs to be shorter and stockier.

    for those worried about Palisades not doing any more Muppets, think of this as the new continuation of that line. It's no coinceidence they are in the exact same style and scale of those:)

    Man, can you imagine when all of the Waves of the SESAME STREET line are finally out?

    Witih all of the MUPPET SHOW and SESAME STREET Muppets, you can re-create the grand finale of THE MUPPET MOVIE!

    These are lovely and wonderful! Hooray for Palisades! Man that Oscar figure is a thing of beauty!!

    Yeah Palisades has definately scored big. Now I know, there's a lot of Muppet fans that cant stand Sesame...but to me Sesame is a part of Muppet canon as Fraggle Rock.

    I don't consider myself a big SS fan, but I do love the characters. I just favor the Muppet Show and Fraggle guys more. They were MIA for so long and I suppose absence does make the heart grow fonder. :excited: :concern: :(
  19. jeffkjoe

    jeffkjoe Well-Known Member

    For me, it's the other way around.

    I prefer the Muppets as:

    1. Sesame
    2. Muppet Show
    3. Fraggle Rock

    If I had a choice of only collecting one line of Muppet toys, it'd be Sesame, hands down.

    The "Street" is a facade not actual playsets, a different section coming with each figure, and after having seen these pics (thank you BTW, theprawncracker), I didn't think they'd be that big, even though I saw the sketches on the Made in China section over at Palisades.

    I think in general, these figures will sell more then TMS figs, so because of retailer support, we should get a good run... then again, if the street is that big, I'm worried if retailers might not want to devote that kind of shelf space.

    Does anyone know if these are prototypes or final sculpts? Oscar looks perfect, but Ernie and particularly for me; Guy Smiley seem like they could use a little refining, it could also be the photos themselves... not that I care, I'm gonna' buy them all anyway!

    My Koozebane Kermit will have his home on the street.
