  • Great episode, I totally disagree though on mcs point about dstreet organizing the people in an orderly matter. I wouldnt want to share my thoughts on this however I can tell you that they need to make these sets last a little longer than have a lower size edition number and make the highly sought after sets accessible that a way people dont have to worry about waking up in the morning driving to downtown disney for a set. They should keep all the limited edition items at the special events, that a way disney would continue to please their fans with no worries. Another issue I had with 2011 that could possible be more than a problem in 2012 is the number of releases. Im certainly not a completist (a person that doesnt go after every single set) however they are coming out with so many releases that people cannot possibly keep up with the demand. The collect what you like idea is great and allows a person to stick to that genre or goal, however if you are stacking release after release in order to get their attention, the consumer ends up more broke than they had too!

  • You mentioned there were 2 chasers for the Japanese Zodiac set. I can only find one (Si & Am). What was the other one?

    • Nice catch. Technically there are not 2 mystery chasers. However the set did have 12 known figures and 1 mystery chaser. So we did miss speak, but were just discussing the new trend in these Japan sets having 13 figures per set instead of 12. The Japan cupcake set however did have 11 mystery figures and 2 mystery chasers.
