Retro Weekend: 5/23/11

Last weekend we saw a lot of upcoming figures for the first time thanks to the trading event over at WDW. We had a lot of fun there and want to thank everyone who attended and came up and said, “Hi”.
We got our first look at some of the Urban 7 figures in real life. The alien’s clear body is very cool. As is the Spaghetti and Meatballs figure. Check out more shots of this series in

While the news of the new Alaskan DCL exclusive figures were all over the place last week, on Friday we had a chance to actually see the figure, and the other two figures that are coming out: Caribbean and Mexico.

Another big reveal at the trading event was the release of the WDW 40th Anniversary Variants. These pieces can only be retrieved by trading with a Cast Member at stores inside WDW.
