    Is there any chance these will ever be released?

    It depends? Seriously, the demand for these two characters is well below our factory minimum order. That's really the driving factor for us at this point.

    ^ The Leonard Nimoy character was a minor character so I can see why interest is low.
    Whatever happened to Henry Corwin/Santa, Maya the Cat-Girl, Five Characters in Search of An Exit that were shown as prototypes?
    Or Anthony Fremont, Marsha White? They've been made as 3 3/4". No interest in 8"?

    How about just making the heads and marketing them as Twilight Zone pencil toppers? Keychains?

    All good questions and suggestions. There were likeness rights issues on the original 8-inch figures we showed prototypes for which prevented us from going forward at the time. When we went back later and did the 3 3/4 inch line, we actually had to take out likeness and had to go out of our way to ensure that they didn't look anything like the actors or actresses who portrayed the characters. Thankfully that worked well in the retro 3 3/4 inch size and 5 points of articulation format. I'm not sure if this is the best approach to take with 8-inch figures, however. We've been rightfully criticized in the past for being off on a few of our head sculpts - when we attempted to make them look just like the actor or actress. Without the likeness rights, I'm not really sure how to bridge this gap. We would have to intentionally make them look "off" and not like the actors. At 8-inch scale, I think that would't really translate well.

    I appreciate the clarification. I just can't help feeling there were four more good Ventures and four more good TZs for those lines, but that's the fan in me.

    Does this mean the end of any additional 8 inch retro figures from BBP? Are there other lincenses?
