Even though its not a train there is one major Rudolph omission from the market.  Of all the collectibles etc produced...no one has made reproductions of the stop animation puppets.  They are small and would easily appeal to doll, model, and figurine collectors.  Some of the originals were restored and went to auction not too long ago.  A nice vintage look.

Rankin Bass Rudolph Stop Animation Puppets [1)

I’m not sure what you mean. Rudolph action figures like these were marketed for years by Playing Mantis and sold on toy shelves in the late 1990s. I have an entire set that are bought back then.

The same company also made smaller PVC figurines, some sold as keychains, even before the action figure line came out.

And Hallmark has produced ornament versions over the years.

Also, the original stop-animation figures were not puppets. They were clay figures that were altered to create the illusion of movement. 

You find the Playing Mantis figures readily available on eBay.

I'm referring to actual scale models...felted and articulated.  If I have missed these being offered please direct me to a source.

Does Federated Stores still have any legal interest in the story?  They own Macy's.  I think Macy's somehow was behind the creation of the story.

Rudolf was created by Robert Lewis May, and was first published by Montgomery Wards in 1939.  Various publishers since offered their own versions, including DC Comics.

Rakin-Bass did their own take on the story with the TV specials.  Ownership change hands several time after Rankin-Bass closed up shop. The R/B specials are apparently now owned by NBCUniversal.
