From what I heard a certain number of packages samples exist, but no actual production run. At the end Palisades was hurting so bad and had made so many product overruns that they ended up blowing out for nothing, that they never started production until they had enough pre-orders to justify it.

Trust me, you can rifle through the dumpster outside of Palisades and find all the unsold Palz, Crittaz and Freakables you could want. They made a lot of BAD product decisions.

It's disappointing, because I was looking forward to these for custom fodder, and was also looking forward to their Aqua Teen Hunger Force line.

If packaged versions exist, they'll probably show up on toyrocket or bluedottoyz or one of those toy companies that does buy-outs.

I 'm a huge Woverine Fan, and picked up the Newest Stealth Woverine from the X-Men Line. He come with a set of Night-Vision Goggles wich looks a little hokie on him but it looks pretty sweet on my Sneak Preview Wookie. I'll post pics of my new Stealth Attack Wookie Soon.

Just to follow up on the Palisades closure: I found out yesterday if it's not in stores now, it doesn't exist. No Sesame Street, Terminator, Aqua Teen...nothing. The molds were made but no toys were ever produced.  :(

I guess it's always possible that since the molds are there, some other company pay purchase them?

AS ashamed of myself as I am about it. I was actually looking forward to the Sesame Street figs. ITs one of those things that I always wanted as a kid. I would have bought them on principal alone. Kind of like the Mach 5 and Speed Racer figs from several years ago.

Ahh.. to dream of what could have been. :'(

I would have bought the Seasme Street figures too. Nostalgia.

The company that bought Palisades and now owns the molds makes prop replicas and has stated that they are not looking to get into the action figure market; however, although they have the molds, my understanding is that the licenses do not transfer, so I don't think we're going to get these anytime soon.

Big Lots has GI JOE figs really cheap. I found the last assortment of Venom vs Valor figs in 2 packs at Big Lots today. Since the VvsV are sold 2 figs per pacakge they were really 4 packs and they were only $5.99. 4 figs for six bucks is a great deal in my book. I never pass up a chance for some cheap fodder.

Remember any of the specific characters you found by chance Fritz?  I gotta make a trip to Big Lots I guess.  Fortunately they're all over aorund here.  I wish they'd get SW surplus in. :)

I tend to pass the figures onto someone who wants them but their gear I find lots of uses for.

Though for mini-guns I'm gonna be lookin' for that Clone battlepack. :)

I'm almost certain the minigun in the Clone Battlepack is the very same one that comes with Roadblock.

that's a good eye In-Rem, it does look the same and not surprising given Hasbro likes to cheap it up as much as possible on those packs.  I was sorta surprised it seemed new, so maybe it's just more brand re-use of molds across the company.

Has anybody picked this up yet?

I have been wanting to pick it up for a while, but I haven't seen it in stores yet.
The dimensions are:
9.75" x 9.5" x 3.75"

I think that it might be a bit smaller than 1:18th scale, but it would be decently close.  For $10 - $15, it would definitely be cheaper than  a hasbro version.
What do you guys think?
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.
