The chaser could be This, could be That.

In another interesting development, Disney has revealed that the Chasers to the Jrs 5 set “This and That” have changed. Disney had this to say.

“We learned that the trays were accidentally assorted incorrectly. If you buy a tray, you will still get the entire series yet the mystery chaser figures were switched. -Vinylmation.com”

So Wing and a Prayer and Up and Down become the more rare figures and therefore the chasers. And you will now get 2 each of PB&J and Smoke and Mirrors.

Original Chasers
New Chasers

To me, this is a good thing. I really enjoy the “Smoke and Mirrors” and “Peanut Butter and Jelly” over “Ups and Downs” and “Wing and a Prayer”. This also explains the curiosity we discussed on the latest podcast, because both the old chasers were on display.

But this production error after Furry Friends and whatever happened with the Disney Store 25th Light up set makes for some curious problems in the Vinylmation arena. Does this bother anyone, or do you accept it as one of the downfalls of the world?

  • Hey, I just wanted to point out,that there have been multiple Jrs that have featured the clear material (y’all said that the two original chasers were the first). It is used both in Celebrations (both wedding bands and graduation cap) and in Occupations (Drs Xray, Dentist Teeth, both Police Sirens, Chef’s Olive Oil, Accountant’s Coffee, and the Computer Guy’s e-mail. I think that even though these are the mystery Jrs, they don’t always get the same hype as the actual series. I would love to see even more use of clear in the regular series. I don’t know if you would consider the one that comes attached to the VInylmation Backpack, but that one is just clear black :D.

    • You are very right! We should have went to the Juniors expert before saying that. It’s funny because just a week previous while making a custom I was talking to a friend about needing a clear Jr for an idea and I did remember some of those Occupations.

  • So, a wing and a prayer is the first Chaser, and up and down is the second correct? The Peanut Butter/Jelly, and Smoke and Mirrors will still be in the set right?

    • All correct. You will now get 2 each of PB&J and Smoke and Mirrors and 1 each of Wing and Prayer and Up and Down.
