Toy Story

Today's post brings you a little more information on the Sesame Street action figures being produced by Palisades Toys. The company had their upcoming Sesame Street figures on display at their showroom at the US ToyFair this week. For those who don't know, series 1 of the Sesame line will consist of Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, Guy Smilie, the Two-Headed Monster, and Super Grover. The "mass market" version of the figures will come with a limited number of accessories, whereas the "exclusive market" figures will come with even more accessories, and a piece Sesame Street itsef. The street peices will fit together to make the buildings and areas on Sesame Street (and eventually the whole street). The pieces from the Series 1 collector version will fit together to create Big Bird's nest area. Then Palisades will work there way down the street with Series 2's parts forming the facade of the 123 Seasame Street apartment building.

Series 1 is not due out until this summer/fall, and series 2 may seem a long way off. But Palisades has announced the characters that will be found in the second series of figures this week. Series 2 will include: Bert, Count Von Count, the Yip-Yip Martians. and Roosevelt Franklin. Palisades also assured the fans that a Big Bird figure in the works.

Where did you get the figure pictures? Do you have closer versions? They look awesome, I really like the 2-head monster.

The photos were edited ("cut-out" of their background and placed together) by me, GelflingWaldo, just for this news post. You can find bigger pictures from the show of all the characters with the street parts (Big Bird's nest area and 123 Sesame Street) at the following links:

I love the Oscar figure. It is so cool. I can't wait to get my hands on that one! (And Guy Smiley - just cause he's my favorite character). ;-)
