Disney has released the information about when we will be seeing that Park 7 LE Kitchen Kabaret set.
On February 10th they will be coming to the WDW and DLR D-Streets as well as EPCOT’s MouseGears and Mission: SPACE Cargo Bay.
The set was designed by Maria Clapsis and has a limited edition number of 2000. That’s great… now for the bad news. Back at The Florida Project they said that this set would be $74.95.

Unfortunately, the Vinylmation Blog yesterday announced the price at $99.95. This is a disturbing trend that began with the announcement of the Park 7 ELP Dragon price of $74.95 earlier in the week and continued last night when it was told to guests that all single 9″ figures going forth with start with a $74.95 base price. The reasoning given by Disney officials is “rising production costs.” What does this mean for your Vinylmation collection? We will be talking about it on this week’s podcast. Chime in with your thoughts here or voice your concerns by voice mail 209-28-MOUSE and we will play it on this week’s show.
I love this set. And Kitchen Kabaret is one of those attractions that is well suited to an LE set all it’s own. The figures are designed so well too! Look at the curtain in Bonnie’s ears. And the top on Mustard above. Personally, we have seen $99.95 on previous sets of 6, but that’s my ceiling. And 9″s at $75? I think have purchased my last one unless I can pick it up in a Christmas fire sale at the end of the year.
