    I definately hope that you are right WiGgy. I cant wait until Palisades reveals what those new products are going to be. Keep your fingers crossed for Sesame Street and Fraggle rock!

    I think Ken said on the boards that they still can't get retail support for Fraggle Rock. I don't know why that is though. I mean, stores are buying the plushes and DVDs and stuff, why not figures?

    True, but i think it's highly unlikely F4All will continue - it doesn't look like they are working through it at all and you'd probably find that the plans if they did come back would be totally different. I can't see specialist lines being a priority for them, and the people who worked on the development may not even be there any more. I doubt Palisades could have got the exact license unless Sesame Workshop didn't end up getting paid or something but it's possible they could have got a variation of it. As for the negative feedback to the original news, Wiggy just said what most of us feel. I don't think we were their target market anyway, or at least not at first. Just seemed like we were an extra market for them to tap into.

    It is possible that since F4A filed for bankrupcy Palisades was able to buy the license from them. It's been months since that could have happened. Lines like ZIM and Fairly Odd Parents were annouced like 6 months before production even started, so it's very possible that the Sesame line is being annmouced soon with a tentative release date around spring or summer time.

    It is also possible that Palisades got a specialty license for Sesame figures that can only be sold in places like Media Play stores and online stores. They did that with Fairly Odd Parents so they could have done it for Sesame Street. Muppets are only at specialty stores now and with series 9 they will only be online, so they may just start that way with Sesame Street.

    You never know. I'm hoping one of the lines is Sesame Street. Imagine a Big Bird figure that is 11 inches tall. How cool would that be? And unlike Sweetums, EVERYONE would want to sell that figure.

    Yeah a speciality license would be cool. I'm sure it's possible. We'll see i guess!

    I'm closing this thread until a formal announcement is made concerning the future of the Sesame Street figures. Everything is speculation at this point.

    Just a reminder to everyone to please abide by the forum rules, especially when you feel like you are in a heated disagrement with another member.
