Yeah, I remember the SS action figure line-up. I was SO excited about them...but obviously we never saw them come out. I'm sure someone will eventually release something similar though, not that anyone will have the accuracy or care and love of Palisades...

They're all sooooo cool... except for those Vila Sesamo ones... those ones are kinda ugly. But I'm really drooling over that Abelardo. Man, I wish SW would just sell some sort of set of international character PVC's or something. Best thing I saw was a Plaza Sesamo bib at Family Dollar.... Wonder of they had a Pancho too?

Oh heck yeah, that is a pretty sweet Abelardo. Man that would be a dream come true to see figurines of some of the International Sesame Streets. Its kind of underground, as very few people in the US are even aware of other productions. It's like, they're secret:smile:

I mean look at those Norwegian Sesame figures, talk about obscure. And oh yeah, from what I hear that early 70's Brazilian Sesame Street was...bizarre to say the least.

And you gotta love a show called "Barrio Sesame" that features a guy named Don Pimpin:smile: (ok, yeah I know thats not how its pronounced)

I'm still so sad about Sal.... Johnny needs his monkey buddy!

It's like... releasing Ernie with out Bert, or Statler without Waldorf (well, maybe not THAT extreme >_>)
