A wasted opportunity with so much potential.

Yeah, I can't believe it all tanked so fast. The new series rocked and I was hoping the classic style line would mirror MOTUC's success.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Man I miss these. The figures were just a tad large for my tastes, but man was it ever an awesome line.

Crystar - If handled differently, I think it could have been a competitor to MOTU.

Secret Wars - Just a hair bigger than I like, but they were close enough in size to the Joes and SW figures I had that I always wanted the whole MU released.

BUCK ROGERS and BSG

So much potential with these two, especially with the 3 3/4 scale. Buck's starfighter is still pretty amazing looking, even by today's standards.

Would have been cool to see a 3 3/4 scale colonial viper, landram and shuttle (just dreaming) and scale cylon fighter. Doubt that was ever in the cards but if they made a landram for Buck, how far off could I be?

Years ago, I made a list of BSG and Buck Rogers figures that should have been made, I'll post it, if I find it.

In the process of cleaning out some of the storage bins in the basement and I brought back out Palisades Muppets.

Man, I want that company and line back in the worst possible way... :(

Although I think the Sesame Street Line is more a disappointment- since all we got was supergrover--

That Build A Playset - Seasame Street would have been awesome, if only they werent such a-holes at conventions I might feel a little sorry..

Although they really were the leader in expensive exclusive figures-- (sometimes more exclusives than actual retail releases)

Definitely with BSG made it a few more waves. I wrote about my list of BSG figures that should've been made this blog a while back:
http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/blog ... ack-mattel’s-battlestar-galactica/

Just slightly ahead of BSG, though, would be vintage Flash Gordon. Needed a Dale, Barin, and Aura.

Clash of the Titans had tons of potential but we only got four figures and two beasts.

But how about Mork & Mindy. We only got a Mork!!!

And, I agree with the above post about Secret Wars. I was a big Marvel fan and these were it. I would've died for some more characters.

Yeah, Palisades way overextended itself. It's too bad, because I loved collecting the Muppets line. But, wow, did Palisades have a lot of variants. And variants of variants!

The Muppets figures were amazing detailed, and so well painted. And the playsets were phenomenal. The backstage playset was my favorite. And the Rocketeer Beaker was my favorite figure. The Muppets line was one of the few that I displayed.

I doubt I would ever part with the Muppets line. Just bury me entombed in Muppets plastic.

I wished the Toy Biz Legendary Heroes line had continued, I had hope for the Lone Ranger, Tarzan and Zorro. Really liked the Hasbro Justice League line also.
