Palisades unveils Sesame figures at Toy Fair

By Phillip Chapman
February 19, 2005

Last December, Palisdes officially announced that sunny days were ahead as they were traveling to Sesame Street and releasing Sesame Street action figures beginning in the summer of 2005.

This week, fans at Toy Fair in New York City got their first look at series 1 set to release this summer. Series 1 will include Ernie, Oscar, the Two-Headed Monster and Guy Smiley. Super Grover will be the first figure available through the Palisades Collector's Club beginning in April.

Each series figure will be released in two versions. One for mass retail which will include a figure and accessories, and another version for the collector's market which will include pieces of Sesame Street that you can assemble yourself. Retailers will be announced later this year.

The following pictures are prototypes as they are still a work-in-progress.

Palisades Toys has also officially announced that series 2 will feature: Bert, Count Von Count, the Yip-Yip Martians and Roosevelt Franklin. A special release of Big Bird is also planned for later this year.

For more information on the latest releases from Palisades Toys, check out the Sesame Street and Classic Muppet release schedules.
