Sesame series 1 accesories revealed

Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by theprawncracker, Jun 7, 2005.

    Ask and ye shall receive... answers that is.

    1 Release: We're not sure as to the exact date just yet. Slated for a "Fall 2005" release.
    2 Series 2: This is why I hope we get S1 sooner so that there might be some hope of me getting my main guy from S2 in time for my B-Day this year.
    S2 Lineup, and keep in mind none of this is set in stone and things may change from now to the actual release.
    Bert.
    Roosevelt Franklin.
    The Martians.
    The Count von Count.

    And there's a Big Bird also being worked on at the time of this posting.

    3 Kermit: No, Kermit won't be included within the parameters of the SS contract and no Kermit figure will be released as part of the SS action figure line. However, if you want both the signature Kermit and RC Kermit release, my advice is to get 'em both if you want.
    a. You feel a certain connection to RC Kermit, then get that one for sure. But that one's best for a TMS grouping, since he'll come with his nephew Robin as a pack-in figure along with three Muppet veggies.
    b. The regular S1 Kermit seems best for interacting on the Street, especially since RC Kermit though removable from his log base won't be able to stand straight up due to the nature of his seated pose.
    c. You could also get yourself anyone of the Reporter Kermit figures for those SS News Flash spots you may want to recreate with your figures.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    AAH, that O guy is on my old Sesame tape I found (there's a whole thread about it). I've never seen what he looks like, but I picture him as a shifty bootlegger.
    :D

    Nice, but I'm surprised that Two-headed Monster doesn't come with something. A storybook would be easy to do and appeared in a skit Scott posted at Tough Pigs.

    The info is that 2HM was to come with the wall. But during retooling, it got carried over to Ernie's pack so it wouldn't be dropped altogether.

    Personally, I'm hoping 2HM's A can be switched for Ernie's D, but not sure if it's possible at this point.

    What accessories do you imagine will come with the martians?

    Probably a clear display stand, or a rock to stick them in, but I dunno.:p

    Question for Count (and whoever else can help):
    I was just looking at the list of accessories for Oscar, and it says that his trashcan has a hinged lid and attachable feet. Does this mean that Oscar can go inside the can with the lid closed? What do you think?
     
  11. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    Yes, when Oscar is inside his can you can put his feea on the trashcan and close the lid.

    On another note, BEAR have you considered joing the Palisades' Toys forum? All of this info can be found there.

    All right, lemme explain. This is how the action figure of Oscar The Grouch will work.

    1 Not sure due to my blind batty eyes, but I'd bet he'll come packaged with his head and arms, and whatever else of his upper body, above and outside the trashcan.
    2 You remove the arms and push Oscar's head down inside the trashcan.
    3 The trashcan lid, attached by a hinge, then closes over Oscar's head inside the trashcan.
    4 When you push Oscar's head downwards, two pegholes emerge from the bottom of the can.
    5 Once the pegholes are seen, you can attach his feet to the bottom to make it look as if he's walking around inside his can.

    What I'm gonna try to do is push his head downwards to get the pegholes to show up, attach the feet, and then see if I can bring his head back up to connect the arms. Course, will have to wait till the figures are released to conduct this test.
    Hope this helps you Bear.

    Sounds cool! Thanks for explaining that. I was just hoping to be able to have Oscar go down in his can "away from everyone" whenever he (or I) felt like it. :grouchy:

    I know that some people have complained about the distribution of the letters and that Ernie should have the letter A and Two-Headed should have the letter D instead of the other way around. However, I think it makes sense the way it is with Ernie coming with the D, and I will tell you why. One of the most famous musical moments was Ernie singing the "Dee Dee Dee" song about the letter. Do you remember? "Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee Dee DOGGIE, Dee Dee Dangerous Dragon..." You get the point! :p

    Yeah... That thought did come to me. But I'd prefer Ernie to have the A.
    Why? Well... You know about that fabled Muppets figure product guide I've been working for over the last year?
    Thing is, thought I'd work on one for the Sesame Street line as well. And you need to have some way of organizing the figures in the line. And if they're gonna come with Muppet letters, the most logical thing is to have them in alphabetical order according to the Muppet letter they came with.
    Using this logic, the Two-Headed Monster would be the first in line in the archway marked with the S1. And that miffs me a little, cause as one of the two anchors, Ernie should be in that archway.

    But, since it's pretty much given, 2HM will come with the A and be first in line. Though I'd prefer Ernie to come with the A cause of what I've said above, the fact that he'll come with the D relating to the song "Dee, Dee, Dee" is the reason why I'll bring him and the D along when I finally go with my mom in December to visit my dad's grave on the 13th anniversary of his death.

    Don't worry, I know these figures won't dissapoint and we'll be looking forward to them.

    Much like Uncle Deadly and the Penguins which probably shipped out today.

    Heh... Knew that'd get a response outta someone here on the boards. Ryan, go check out replies by Ignohippo in the thread I started over at the PT boards in the Muppets section, called "Uncle Deadly Arrived?"
    Hope this helps.
