Mad Hatter Variant- Sholess

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Update: @AdmiralAkbrown tweeted this picture. This seems to confirm the variant!

Just a bit ago @jedidiaz tweeted this picture. It appears to be a Mad Hatter without shoes. That would be the second variant for this series. Has anyone else gotten one of these? (Since feet are removable it might be a fake, but the coloring seems right.) Anyone know of a “story” reason that might inspire this?

    • The non-variant has solid dark green feet, so the variant (with light green and circles) kinda looks like he has no shoes.

  • I think it may be when the Queen yells at him and his shoes fly off briefly? I can’t be sure, I’d have to check out the movie again.

  • Went to the Thomas Scott signing today and he confirmed the Mad Hatter variant with socks is the real deal.

  • Was also at the signing today and received a Mad Hatter variant myself. Mr. Scott said he was so excited to see so many Mad Hatter variants pop up today, as he saw none yesterday while at WDW. He wouldn’t tell me the ratio, but said it’s quite rare.

  • Wow only blindboxed 1 AIW vinyl and got this variant, just happy I got the Mad Hatter as hes my favorite.

  • I watched Alice In Wonderland tonight. The scene with Alice on trial, The Mad Hatter is called forward. The Queen screams “OFF WITH HIS HAT” at the Mad Hatter, her loud voice & breath blows the Mad Hatter and his shoes fly off… to reveal, his socks… they are light green with thin dark green stripes, just like the variant.

  • I like the Mad Hatter variant idea. Simple and sweet and based on the storyline.

    Do you think a few of these will get traded away because some people won’t realize the minor difference from the regular issue?

    • I think a lot will be, as will several pink hedgehogs because the little boys who get them don’t want them.
