Loose and packaged shots of the Sesame Street prototypes by Palisades. This is as far as Series 1 got. There are a few of these samples floating around in peoples collections, but that’s it. When they went up on ebay 6 years ago the price was a bit too much for me. If they went up again I’d probably consider it.
As you can see by this point they abandoned the idea of including street pieces and went with more accessories, a letter (which would eventually complete the alphabet) and small diorama pieces. While I desperately wanted the street, this was a great compromise.
The last picture is of Super Grover who did make it out as a Comic Con exclusive! The cover art is by Alex Ross of Kingdom Come fame.
