Light Up Chaser Revealed

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

Today, via the Vinylmation Exchange Facebook trading page, the Disney Store 25th Anniversary Light Up chaser was supposedly revealed. It was posted by Angela Vega. Although no official word by Disney about the chaser, we have seen the 11 known figures in this set, so it is safe to assume this is the real chaser. It is a very interesting character choice that in my opinion makes it a great chaser. The character, although off the beaten path a bit, has appeared on a previous Vinylmation design.

Interesting chaser choice. Most of the other light up characters are more popular Disney characters from the “mainstream” Disney movies. Although Fantasia itself is an oldie, but goodie, the Dancing Hippo is not. As a Vinylmation, I like the character as well as any, but thought other guess such as The Beast would have fit better in the set. On a related note, we have seen Sorcerer Mickey all lit up and the shortcoming of the head not showing the light very well, the Hippo head looks as though it would inhibit light even more. I guess we will have… Read more »

Looking at Disney’s photos of some of the figures lit up, I’m to assume the lighter colours on the face partially light up. However this is definitely not the case with the colour black. Plus there is an area around the neck that should allow some light to escape and therefore highlight the face.
Also to note with Disney’s photos, it has been taken on a black background in order to emphasise the amount they light up.

Seems the only opportunity for light to shine through in this face is the teeth, pupils, and clear ears (if there is any light left by the time it reaches the ears).

Ooh, that would have been Amazing, yet somewhat obscure (though not bad) idea. I would have chased after that idea. I’ll pass on the hippo, personally.

Wow!! This is a great Chaser!! This is quite a surprise though, because I thought the chaser would be a HUGELY well known Disney character, because its a big event. I love the figure anyway though. So, overall, I really like it!!

This just made the whole entire set a million times better!!!! Fantasia (and Fantasia) are in my top 3 Disney films of all time. I will definitely be getting the whole set, although, with sich mixed reviews on this set (chaser included), I think that it might be a better buy to ‘secondary market’ a whole set.

There is someone on ebay that has a case of the light ups and is selling them. They revealed the chaser. How were they able to get the case? They have not been released yet!!!! This is very disturbing!!! Are they stolen?
The seller is apple9117.

Yes there is a seller on eBay that had an incredible amount of the 25th series and furry friends cases. So word is they must be stolen especially with how cheap they were selling for. But it’s not the seller you mentioned.
