    That's terrible, those figures looked great! Glad I got a Super Grover, at least.

    No Series 1 at all?


    Wait a minute...completely cancelled? Even through OMGCNFO? Even S1? They were finished and ready to go, right? I pre-ordered 'em months ago like a lot of other MCers did, and they were "going through customs" from what I heard.

    So, should I keep my order intact in case they decide to ship out, or just cancel altogether? (Lucky thing I kept my money order receipt).

    Sorry to say... But yes, S1 was completely cancelled. They were ready to go, but never left the factory. You should've received a message from OMG stating that they would ship out any other items you ordered at the time of making the SS S1 pre-order, if you ordered any additional items as well. They say they'll keep the pre-orders on record when/if the figures become available... But we all know the line's been completely cancelled. Only hope is if some other company picks up the license, fingers crossed for Ken's CMX.
    Hope this helps.

    Dr Tooth... dont keep yer heads up for TMNT.. as i hear it, a new series is underway. I love the series they have now. Appearently they're about to go 99 years into the future and become, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fast Forward.

    I wish they at least gave us series 1. It was already made, why couldn't they just give out what they had?

    Count, whats Kens CMX? is this a toy company h put together? If so then i pray he gets ahold of the lisence.. although, i think, and not to start rumors, i read once somewhere that there are a couple of companies looking into the sesame street toy license. I dunno who, or what they're planning, and i think i read something either they're going to buy, or not going to buy, Palisade's molds.

    I just hope we see simialr work that Palisades started for the SS figs so Super Grovers not flyin solo.

    Hi CoOKiE.
    CMX = Creatus Maximus, found at www.creatusmaximus.com
    Yes, it's a new company, starting out with its two initial lines at SDCC: Smart Bombs and KockBlockErz. There'll be four Smart Bombs Duo-Packs available at the convention, one of them resembling a certain duo named Hurt and Burnie.
    Haven't heard anything about other companies buying up the license from what once was Palisades... Though if they snapped up the molds I'm not that encouraged that said company would continue the work with new figures enfused with the same spirit as what Palisades had. And the SS S1 figures were basically perfected and ready for shipping from China, just happened that the company went bankrupt and got bought out before that happened.

    Really hope Ken gets the license, all we can do is wait and see.

    Palisades isn't going to be at any of the Wizard World conventions this year either, which really sucks!

    Hey Count; I know you're the expert here so I'll ask you if you don't mind:
    • What happens then to all the existing SS figures Palisades already made?
    • And also, I thought I heard Ken Lily resigned, is that true?

    To quote Woody Page: "Why do I always have to straighten you guys out?!?"

    Ken didn't hexactly resign... He just sort of stepped out and stepped down, I remember posting about it here when the news broke. And Palisades won't be at any conventions this year... Mainly because there is no Palisades Toys any more, it's now Limited By CAS a distribution corporation.
    Then again, you might want to head on over to Ken's CMX forums and check out the designs for the Smart Bombs and PunchBunny's KockBlockErz. Maybe you'll get a kick outta 'em Dave.

    Welcome to MC Scottie... Not sure if there's that glimmer of hope in actuality, but all we can do at the moment is wait and see what happens. We'd all like it if Ken did get the license for SS, no news at this time, cause he'd put as much into it as the Muppets figures.

    The figures are great, you should check eBay or the Buy/Sell/Trade section of the forum to see if you can make some deals to build up your collection.
    We all were looking forward to the potential SS line, sad to see it canned. Just hope you have a good time exploring the rest of the forums.

    Thanks for straighting things out for me Count, I appreciate it. I will be at the Wizard World Philly convention and I will sincerely miss the guys and gals from the Palisades booth. :cry:

    Count, you keep bringing saying, "hoping Ken gets the license." Is he trying to get his hands on it, or are you hoping he looks into it?
     
  14. The Count

    Saying I hope he gets it... Cause at the mo, it's buried under all the red tape of what Limited By CAS took over from Palisades, just basically sitting on it and doing nothing. It's kind of in licensing limbo at the time, and I rully hope Ken and CMX can rescue it from its previous two strikes.

    BTW: There's a massive set prototype on eBay, just search for "Prototype Oscar" in Toys and Hobbies, and you'll find it.
    Thinking I'll just save the pics for later use, hoping the figure gets tossed in a separate auction later as well.

    Thanks for the info Count, i'm going to look up those protoypes. But my question was, is he looking into it or are you hoping that he looks into getting the license? You answered it as "i hope he gets it." I hope he gets it too, but i'm woundering if hes trying to get it.

    I have heard of this, and the Basic turtles look pretty good... as does Splinter. I mean to collect several I had missed and a few comic specific characters.

    As for SS... I've given up hope completely. There was a gift certificate I was saving to get them... I spent it on the Super Mario Super show DVD.

    Our best chance is in 2 years if Mezco or maybe CM did them as a 40th anniversary.... but that's it.

    Oh well, at least we got Sesame Street Pez.
