Release Day: July 13, 2012

Excuse me if I’m a little jaded this morning and not rushing to my computer to order from the Disney Store Online today. Not much surprise, but the Carl and Ellie release yesterday went less than smoothly. That included a mid afternoon tease where we all flooded the DSO again to purchase the “now available” Carl and Ellie combo. Of course we woke up to emails from Disney apologizing for the mistake. I wrote them back with a little note of my own, did anyone else?

So today, a few releases hit the Disney Store Online once again… and once again I am reading grumblings of errors for a few figures that didn’t even have close to the hype or demand of Carl and Ellie.

The Comic Con release slate continues today with the Purple Park Starz Squid Variant. An LE of 1954 for $24.95.

As expected, Epcot’s favorite purple dragon popped up online today. This Figment Park Starz variant is an LE 2500 for $24.95. Varying reports say he was available at times overnight? The listing now says Sold Out. But there are issues with the listing description…

The edition size seems wrong and it doesn’t have poseable arms and head. A report on the Vinylmation Exchange Facebook page says the listing has been changed to Sold Out while changes are made.

Park 9 is available online and at your local D-Street.

9″ Park 9 Art of Animation Poster is at D-Streets. Check out my history of the Disneyland attraction here.

9″ Park 9 Feature Animation Building is at D-Streets as well. Check out my history of the Burbank building where Disney magic is drawn to life here.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • And don’t forget the Japan Mickey comes out at Disney Stores for Magic Around the World.

  • I stayed up last night to order the Squid and Figment Park Starz. Started at 2am CDT and FINALLY got a confirm at 3:47am CDT, but no Figment. That entire time was a fiasco of frozen/crashed problems. This morn I decided to call to add Figment once it was up for sale. The had about as much intelligence as a rock. Finally cancelled the order and ordered online. That order took 2 mins plus I got a $15 discount. When works, it works, but if there is a problem, it’s a BIG one.

    • I woke up at 3 am to get the squid, and my order was confirmed at 4 am (est). It took about 20 tries on the website because it kept freezing or not going through finnaly i tried it on my other computer and it went through.

  • Just purchased. Comic con boy and girl, figment, and squid can’t wait for them to arrive. Had to search to find them on the site.
