If we were EVER to get smaller Muppet figures, only way I'd buy them were if either: A. They were Art Asylum Minimates B. Disney was considering completely ending the Muppets if they didn't sell. or C. They had all the detail of the Palisades. And, Palisades figures were FAR from McStatues. Go get a '68 Comeback Tour Elvis, compare it to any Palisades figure except Rainbow Connection Kermit and Robin, and THEN tell me Palisades Muppets were McStatues.
