Surprise! The Disney Store Online today released the 9″/Jr Kidada we have been waiting for since last year’s D23.
An LE 500, this set comes with a colorful 9″ featuring Pinocchio having fun at Pleasure Island, a Junior Jiminy Cricket and a pin. It retails for $74.95 and is available online as well as the North Michigan Avenue Disney Store in Chicago, Times Square Disney Store in Manhattan and the Walt Disney Studio Store in Burbank.
The back of the 9″ is delicious with donkey Pinocchio inside Monstro’s mouth.
The Junior Jiminy has a great facial expression as he is watching Pinocchio. The pin reads “Official Conscience, 18KT”. A nice touch.
The box, as with all Kidada’s, is simply brilliant. A colorful design with quotes and such that ads as much to the figure as the design itself.
The back of the box reinvents the way 9″s SHOULD be packaged! A window in the back gives collector’s a look at the whole design. And the way it’s done, with the curtain, is fantastic. I have never purchased a Kidada yet, but this one I hit “add to cart” as soon as it loaded onto the screen. One of the best overall designs I have ever seen on a 9″ Vinylmation, toss in the Jr, pin and packaging… and this is one of the instant standouts of 2012.
