    I am soooo excited about this series coming!! I thought Grover would be one of the first ones released, afterall, we have seen a photo of his Grover Kent/Super Grover figure. Anyway... Do you know when they will be released?

    P.S. wouldn't it be so cool if they came out with figures resembling the human cast on Sesame Street?

    Umm, Super Grover has been released. He's avalable. I don't know when Series 1 is slated for though.

    Thought I'd help you out again Bear.
    If you're talking about a signature version of Grover as an action figure, the concenssus is that he's being held back to anchor a potential future series.
    As for human characters, I'd like to see figures of them as well, but Palisades won't make them. They fall outside of the parameters of the contract, at least that's what we believe given the fact they couldn't make figures of the TMS guest stars especially with all the likeness issues and rights and so on.
    As for release, they've been targeted for a Fall 2005 release. Though I'm hoping that the removal of the Street diarama set pieces might mean we could possible get S2 earlier, within the end of the year.
    Also awaiting news of how the street set pieces will be released/distributed.
    Hope this helps and have a good night.

    If Grover has already been released, how can I find out where I can order him? Thanks!

    Check ebay or join Palisades Toys membership ($50, but it's a lifetime membership and I think it's totally worth it). Super Grover has been available for roughly a month now.

    True, but you should remember that he's been in and out of stock various times during the month after becoming available at first.

    Bear, there are various ways you can get Super Grover, the action figure made by Palisades that is.
    1 Head on over to eBay and do a search, there are a few items there currently on the auctioning block.
    2 Become a member of the Palisades Toys forum and ask an already-existing club member (not the same things) if they could please pick up an extra SG figure for you and then arrange payment for the person doing you the favor.
    3 You could always ultimately become a Palisades Collector's Club member and then have the opportunity to purchase up to 4 figures as a full-fledged member. The membership fee is $49.99 plus S&H, and you can choose from a total of five different sign-up kits to get as a new member.
    The kits include Army of Darkness Deadite 2-pack, Modern Gonzo with repainted Chickens, GITD Koozbane/Reporter Kermit, Nightmare Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Sad-Faced Ren Hoek from Ren & Stimpy.
    Once you become a member, you can go back in and place an order for the figures/items you'd like to pick up in addition to your sign-up kit. They might ship all on the same day as one package or multiple packages, if ordered on the same day but I'm not 100% sure that'll be the way it happens.

    At any rate, be aware that there are two packaged versions as to how you could receive your Super Grover figure.
    a. You could get Super Grover with his helmet and cape already on in full superhero costumed regalia.
    b. You could also possibly receive the figure with his trenchcoat and fedora and glasses, disguised as Grover Kent instead.
    Palisades has packaged half of the production run as SG and the other half as GK, and it's unknown which one you get until you get the package and open it up.
    Same deal with the two differently painted Frog Scouts that come with FSL Kermit.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    Waaaait a second, hold the phone:

    I thought the figures would come with pieces of the 123 Sesame Street neighborhood backdrops?
     
  11. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    Well... yes they were, guess you haven't heard/read the news yet Jeffkjoe.
    Check out the "Sesame Street Figures Alert!" thread.

    But basically, the set pieces have been dropped from being included with the figures. However, Palisades says that the set pieces will be available later. We just don't know how, where or when at this moment.
    And it was the doors to Big Bird's nest that were to be included with the S1 figures, the 1-2-3 building with S2.
    Rully hopin' the Street will still be a reality later on down the line.

    Not that I'm complaining about anything, I pledged to stop doing that a long time ago, but does anyone else here think it would be cool if Guy Smiley had come with some sort of pack in character like a talking food item or cloud? You know, like one of his old contestants or game show participants?

    Would be nice indeed, Doc.

    I'll defo be picking up the Ernie, regardless of anything else. Possibly the Guy Smiley, if I'm in a good mood. Never liked the Two Headed Monster a whole lot. The ones I can't wait for are Bert, Grover, Don Music and that "ya want to buy an O" guy.

    Ahem... You mean Lefty the Salesman...
    Right?

    Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing a little talking carrot or shoe or something. It'd be like having 2 characters for the price of one. lol. Also, Ernie should come with his bathtub, but thats just me. Two Headed doesn't really come with any accesories. HE should be the one with the brick wall, not Ernie

    Yes, that's the guy, Ed! I haven't seen him in a while, so I forgot his name. He's my favorite and my father's favorite. We make jokes about him all the time.

    "Psst, kid... ya want to buy an O?"
    "Gee, all I have are these eggs!"
    "I'll make ya a deal. The O for the eggs."
    "OK!"
    (goes home)
    "Hey Bert! How about some fried O for dinner?"

    Funny That Announcer. You know, that's almost the exact setup for the story Ernie Buys a 12 in Volume 12 of the Sesame Street Library.

    As for the lineups, I think Ernie should come with thhe A instead of the D, and the D should be with the Two-Headed Monster.
    Have a few questions about that, but I'm waiting for the new SS Questions thread to go live over at the Palisades forums.

    I just pre-ordered the first set of Sesame Street figures. I am so excited!! Does anyone know at all when they are supposed to be officially released? Also, I think this has been answered already (and if so, i am sorry), but does anyone know which characters are supposed to be included in the next series? Thanks.

    One last thing... I never got into collecting the Classic Muppets series. The only one I own is Fozzie because it was a gift from one of my best friends, but I am definitely gonna start collecting the SS series because these are "my guys". Since the deal with Disney, I don't expect Kermit to be included in the SS series (I hope/wish he is), but I thought about purchasing a Kermit from the Muppets set and sticking him with the SS gang. However, I don't know which Kermit I should get. Should I get the standard Kermit, or wait for the Rainbow Connection Kermit. I have a very special connection with that song and character anyway. What do you think. Which would fit well?

    Believe it or not, that's where it came from. I've a complete set of the Sesame Street Library and so that particular Lefty story is one that's ingrained in my head. I didn't know where it came from at the time, but I do now! Thanks, Ed!

    SS series two will have the YIp Yip Martians, Roosevelt Franklin, Count von Count, and Bert.

    I think Series 1 Kermit would go great with the rest of the SS line, and it would be cheaper than RC Kermit.
