Palisades Toys (2002)

In celebration of The Muppet Show's 25th annivesary Palisades Marketing released the most incredible line of figures ever. In the fall of 2001, product developer Ken Lilly joined our discussion forum and gave Henson fans an opportunity to help shape this line of action figures through daily discussions and brainstorming sessions. The results are simply astounding.

Each figure is approximately 5-6 inches in height. The characters are all in scale to one another so that their size is as accurate as possible. Every figure is poseable and has anywhere from 6-12 jointed areas. A black Muppet Show stand comes with each figure along with several accessories per character.
