Both of these have already been seen on the shelves at Disneyland Paris, but today, Disney announced a July 29 release date stateside for both Davy Crockett and Animal Kingdom Crate. They will be released at both D-Streets as well as a “limited quantity” available at the Disney Store Online. Check them out below and visit our 9″ Park 6 Explained page for more details.
This figure is designed by Maria Clapsis, is LE 800 and will set you back $44.95. Normally, I love everything Maria puts out, but this one will not be joining my collection. As a 3″, it would be welcome, but especially with so many other great 9″ and the price tag, it just doesn’t work for me. It’s a well done design, but doesn’t have that special touch 9″ need to warrant the purchase for me. But I am curious… what animal lurks in the darkness?
The King of the Wild Frontier was a favorite of mine as a kid, and I am so glad designer Casey Jones went the extra step to make Davy Crockett’s signature cap removable! Davy is LE 1000 and will retail for $44.95. As you can tell, this is an immediate pick up for me.
