    With 5 waves it barely even feels like they scratched the surface. :(

    I feel like with the first 5 or 6 waves of the Muppet line they nailed all the heavy hitters, but there's just so many SS characters.

    Plus more possible variants for Sesame like Alistair Cookie.

    I am pretty sure he is not a former Palisades employee. That doesn't mean the list isn't necessarily accurate, but it does seem a little fan-crafted at the end.

    What makes you so sure? Just seems pretty baseless to me.

    With Roosevelt Franklin and Yip Yip Martians confirmed for as early as wave 2 (in reality), nothing seemed out of reach with this line. ;)


    Any major characters missing from the presumed first 5 waves? Something seems to be missing, but I can't quite put my finger on it... Maybe it's just because the humans were such a big part of the show.

    He does seem pretty honest, but the things that stick out to me are why wouldn't they just do Bedtime Ernie with wave 1 and Bert with wave 2 instead of the other way around, Waiter Grover coming two waves before regular (but this really means nothing since Super Grover was released before anything), Betty Lou simply being a repaint of Prairie, though he does state variant, Bathtime Bert existing and Alice would seem to be pushing it for a regular figure.

    Because I know who Quinn is and he was a collector/customizer, but not a Palisades employee... lol. That isn't to say that he wasn't close to the staff and perhaps had some inside information.

    I mean, his posts seemed pretty honest, but fair enough. He said he worked "with" Palisades, not for.

    The Palisades Muppet line is one of my all-time favorite toy lines. I would have loved to see the Sesame Street line take off. The Super Grover figure is AMAZING.

    Even if it was just the "core" characters: Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, The Count, Grover, Elmo, Oscar, etc. it would've been fine. Would've added some more variety to the Muppet figures.

    I've always been bummed that Palisades wasn't able to produce the Sesame Street action figures. I think they would have been just as good, if not better than the Muppets figures. I love the concept of having 2 core characters and 2 lesser-known characters in each series. I guess Palisades kind of did that already with TMS line; for example, Series 1 had Kermit and Miss Piggy alongside Bunsen Honeydew and Dr. Teeth while Series 6 had Statler and Waldorf alongside Clifford and Patrol Bear.

    If the SS line went into production, there would have been many, many series (10+) because Sesame Street has been around longer than the Muppet Show and Muppets Tonight, so Palisades could have produced more characters. If Palisades produced obscure Muppets like Uncle Deadly, the Newsman, and Phil Van Neuter for TMS line, the SS line could have featured the likes of Harvey Kneeslapper, Roxie Marie, and Sherry Netherland.

    It's too bad that these figures will not be produced.
