Last week, the mysterious Color Block series appeared on the Disney events calendar as a June 29 release. Intrigued, we anxiously awaited our first look at this series. Would it be an artsy series like the 6 piece Black and White set? No. No it would not. Here is the first look direct from the Disney vault:
Look familiar? Ya, you probably remember these designs from Jr. Series 2.
Pretty close. And the fact is the designs work so incredibly well on the 1.5″ figures! Sure we get more detail now on the juniors, but series 2 still stands as a great looking Disney themed set. But to blow those designs up to a 3″ figure and sell them for $12.95??!! We are so used to more and more detail and ground breaking designs that this almost, especially at that price, seems insulting. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for painting on representations of a character as an artsy take on a vinyl. But these designs do not have that much to them and there is an incredible amount of wasted space. With so many brilliant designs out there like Mascots and Star Wars, I can not see spending a dime on these. Here is a look at the rest of this 8 figure set that includes Buzz, Woody, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Nemo and Cheshire Cat.
