Palisades Toys Pays Tribute to Muppets’ creator with Special Edition Action Figure
Elkridge, MD (November 24, 2004) – Beginning today, shoppers at Palisades Direct (www.PalisadesDirectStore.com)
will have the opportunity to purchase a brand-new Muppets action figure – Muppets creator, Jim Henson. The figure is based on a Muppet of Jim Henson, which appeared occasionally in the background on The Muppet Show. The figure is being released with the blessing of the members of the Henson family, as well as the Jim Henson Legacy.
“This is a special figure,” commented Palisades President & CEO, Michael Horn, “And it was necessary from our perspective, to give [the project] the respect that it deserved. It was important to everyone involved that this product be classier and more sophisticated than your average action figure. And so far, everyone has been delighted with the results.”
The Jim Henson Special Edition Action Figure comes complete with a number of accessories, including a "Jim Henson" directors chair, a microphone, a banjo, a copy of "Muppet Magazine," and a tambourine. The figure includes multiple points of articulation, and all of the detail that you've come to expect from Palisades. Plus, the entire package comes in a handsome red curtain window box with a flap, allowing for multiple modes of display.
The Jim Henson Special Edition action figure is available now (while supplies last) for $20, plus shipping at www.PalisadesDirectStore.com
