    I've never been able to pre-order more than one series in advance. I have my order for 9 in now... but that's several months away. 10 has already been announced...

    10 has moved to 2005, it will happen in SOME form, but it has not been guaranteed it'll be at retail.

    And no new Muppets figures have come into Memphis YET!; however, I have got my Stay Puft from NECA. He's AWESOME.

    Stay Puft is indeed awesome.

    If you have not gotten them yet you should order them online. If they are not in stores by now they probably won't be ever.

    Yeah, I'd order them as a JIC ("Just In Case" ;) )

    Suncoast here will eventually get them. They eventually get most items I collect; but it's always later than everyone else.

    Here we go...

    OK, so here's my little synopsis of what the heck happened to this line as far as Suncoast is concerned... When S3 sold out like crazy cause of the short run or whatever, Suncoast went NUTS and started ordering like 4 or 5 cases per store of every series. This was great for Palisades in the short term, but it hurts the snot out of the line now, when they have 42 repaint Cliffords for 2.50, as well as Robin and Smollet. I did what I could so far (cause I hate buying stuff online, no offense to the great internet retailers I have met through this website) by buying one of each fig from Suncoast and one of each fig from my semi-local comic shop, to keep interest a bit higher from both venues, trying to secure that at least ONE of those stores would have the line throughout it's entirety (OK, I know that wasn't spelled right).

    We'll have to see if the comic shop pulls through and gets the remaining lines. IF not, make mine Boxing-Cow, cause Big Jim is a good guy...

    Oh yeah, there was a point to this rant... Major retailers are pretty much buffoons. That said, Peace to all and to all a good night!!!

    Ok, my two cents' worth...

    personally I'd love to see a set of arches like the ones used in the opening sequence be released... maybe ones that can be snapped together, put on top of each other to make your own customised set of arches, as your own space and budget allows

    On the Palisades board someone said they thought he surprise was the PALz line-up...Well, I lovbe PALz, but I hope not. I hope it's that theatre.

    You know what I brought up in the beginning that I'd love to see made? You know the Star Wars Action Fleet that comes with characters that bend at the waist and fit in cars and ships, and have battle packs and playsets? I was wishing for some of those. MAYBE--wouldn't it be great?--Maybe we're getting that? We could have the entire Theater with a few characters for $20 practically then, the cars, the stage sets...

    What Palisades is hinting at will not (in my opinion) be a playset. I think it might (though it problaby won't) be a case of anything muppets. These muppets would be like Lego mini-figures in that you could change their heads, hands, head gear, bodies, or even eyes and noses.

    Well, they're gonna add a new section to their forum, that means a new toy line. No idea what it is. :confused:

    I am sure that this is not it, but I really, really, really hope that it is Sesame Street figures. I know that Fun-4-All has the liscense, but my dad is a lawyer and he said that sometimes if two companies have a contract and one files for Chapter 11, then there is a clause in the contract that allows the second company to end the agreement. I have no idea whether Sesame Workshop and Fun-4-All had a clause like this, and probably not... but I can hope. The new forum at Palisades was put about the current Muppet forum, and what could be bigger than there Muppet line besides Sesame Street? I want Palisades Sesame figures! :grouchy:

    OOHH!!! Sesame Street or Fraggle Rock would SOOOO Rock my world!!
     
  17. floydnjanicefan

    floydnjanicefan Active Member

    Yeah. Fraggle Rock figures would be great too (although I would prefer Sesame, or both :excited: ). However, I am not sure how many Fraggle figures could actually be made that would sell very well. I think that they could do Gobo, Red, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Traveling Matt, Sprocket, the Trash Heap, Philo, Gunge, the Gorgs, and the Doozers. A Doc figure would rock, maybe to come with Sprocket, but I dont know how well that would go, they may need special rights to do human characters. I imagine that if there ever were a Fraggle Rock action figures line, it would only go for about 2-3 waves, due to the small number of main characters on the show

    If Fun-4-All still has the SS liscense, I hope their final product will look much better than the proto sculpts, but I'm not so sure...:( I know Palisades would make the figures so unbelieveable, and they'd fit in perfectly with the rest of the Muppet family...:)

    Fun4All's last set of pics of the SS gang looked MUCH better than before. Still, they need to be based off the Muppet characters and not the cartoons.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    I have a thread somewhere to discuss the Fraggles that could have been.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    I dunno. Travis is a HUGE Muppets fan, so that could be either Muppets, Henson, Sesame Street, or Fraggle Rock related; but, they have a whole new section devoted to the new product in the Palisades forums, so it might not be related. Big announcements due soon!

    I know that they would be amazing! I would love to display them with my other Muppets. And I just watched the new Grover DVD and, seeing all of the characters in their tuxes, I thought to myself, "Wow! I would love to have Palisades Sesame Street figures in tuxes too! They could all surround the upcoming Jim Henson figure... It would be so great!

    I know that the product may not be Muppet related, however seeing that the entire article in Toyfare was regarding the Muppets, I do not see why Palisades would throw in a comment about a nonMuppet related product at the end of the article. Everyone cross your fingures and hope that we find out soon...
