More then an Earful

Here’s the second part of the preview Disney put out thanks to it’s 8,900+ followers on Facebook.

The Hollywood Studios Earful Tower.
This design is by Jason Zucker. No word on release date or size, but we think it’s probably a 9″. The design represents the water tower you can see in Hollywood Studios. At this point, the figure looks kinda dull. We won’t know till we see it in person, but for now it doesn’t do anything for us. I hope the final figure will have more detail in it. It would be really cool if the gaurd rail around it was actually three dimensional and was glued all around the head. Here’s what the real one looked like before the park’s name change:

The tower was built in 1988 and was the symbol of the of the park until 2001 when the giant Sorcerer’s hat took over that role. The tower originally read “MGM Studios” but was painted over during the transition to the new name in early 2008. It’s a shame that Disney wouldn’t be putting the old logo on this vinylmation.

(In case you are wondering, the hat size for this feature is 342-3/8.)

I think they changed the post recently- but earlier I thought the blog said the earful tower will be a 3 inch.


I got really excited about this until I saw they didn’t use the old logo. I worked there when it was MGM Studios, so this would have been a must have.
