December 2006 at the Pittsburgh Toy Show, now know as Steel City Con, returning attendees had the unique opportunity to revisit the original Rudolph Production Puppets, but this year they are in their newly restored state! The duo first resurfaced their one year ago, but on this return fans were able to participate in an unique photo opportunity done in a fun "visit with Santa" style. The Time & Space Toys booth was converted into a "Mall Santa" scene with a real live Santa and Girl Elf to pose in photos with customers along with the rare production puppets. The photos were presented to the customer in a Limited Edition Commemorative Photo Frame Booklet. The Booklet contained the cover image shown here and a history of the puppets inside along with a photo of the fan sitting with Santa or Elf next to the actual Rankin/Bass Rudolph and Santa Puppets! The Commemorative Booklet was a Steel City Con Exclusive and was limited to only 500 pieces.

Below are photos from the event.
