Today marks the release of the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival 3″ Tony (from Lady and the Tramp) figure.
The 3″ LE 2500 figure designed by Billy Davis is the second Food and Wine Vinylmation so far. You can find it for $16.95 at the Festival Shop located just past the entrance into the World Showcase (or by the beer kiosk if that helps). You can also find Tony a the Festival Shop near Morocco and at Mouse Gears.
I found him checking out the scenery. So how does Tony look? i find him to be an extraordinarily designed figure. The face looks great. As does the pile of spaghetti and meatballs in the ear. The issue I have is with inconsistent production value. Actually the only consistent factor was there seemed to be a small error on all of them.
One of the most common errors was a blotch near the left shoulder as seen above.
The other common error was a string of paint falling off the pasta… almost like a strand of pasta hanging off the bowl, but this was not an intentional 3D effect. It was almost impossible to find one without this error. The other less common errors were lines around Tony’s mouth, lines on his shirt and specs of white in the tie that should be all black. These things distract partially from an otherwise perfect figure.
