The figure, a brand-new version of the Swedish Chef dressed as Santa Claus, will be available only through eBay, in limited quantities.
“Palisades Toys is no stranger to eBay,” said Palisades President & CEO, Michael Horn, “And so it was an honor to be asked to take part in their very first Holiday Exclusives program.”
