Update: 03/20/12 @Kidada4Disney says release has been delayed to a date TBD
Update: 02/12/12 Rumored March 19th release date for 9″/Jr Pinocchio and Jiminy.
Update: 11/5/11 When we asked Kidada4Disney why Jiminy doesn’t get candy. She responded: “Because he is the voice of reason.” Wow, this combo makes more sense than we thought.
After the release of the Peter Pan Kidada, we finally get a chance to see the concept art for the Kidada that was teased at D23 back in August. This piece features Pinocchio on the 9″ and Jiminy Cricket appears to be on a Jr (thanks VMKingdom). According to vinylmation.com this piece will be available in early 2012. The price of the last set was $74.95 and it was a LE of 1500, but it was with a 3″ not a Jr. You can still get them at the disneystore.com so I wonder is the production run number will come down so there’s more demand. The first 9″ Kidada sold out instantly with a run of 500.
It looks like Jiminy is on a figure with no candy (poor guy, Tinker Bell got a candy bar) and it looks like he might come with a hat! Coolness….
I guess a Jr makes more sense size-wise, which I’ve always said I wish they’d pay attention too. So yey!
What do you think of this piece? Too sweet? Does it make your teeth ache?
