Diving for Eagles

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

Someone over at eBay must have had some time on his hands. And a pair of coveralls. It looks like we have another dumpster dive find. And while this one looks better then most, we still caution anyone from ever purchasing these “finds”.

Now for the interesting part. It looks like Maria Clapsis is at it again with a great looking holiday figure. It seems like these regular figures are the reason we no longer see new editions of Holiday series. Labeled “Independence Day 2013”, this piece looks perfect. I am totally going to get my dad one. I also enjoy the old school flag in the ears, one star for each of the original states in the union. Interesting fact: Did you know that originally when a state was added they added both a star AND a stripe. That got to be too much so they nixed the stripes, and just continued with the stars. We expect to see this in stores late May or early June, but that’s just our speculation.

What do you think of this figure?

Another great vinyl from Maria. I really wish we would start seeing some new Park series vinyls though.

Id much rather buy this Eagle as part of a Holiday series than a series of Wrestlers, Nursery Rhymes or other BOGO fodder!!

I must have this vinyl! It is awesome! I don’t think there is a Vinylmation that Maria Clapsis has designed that I haven’t liked. Can’t wait for this week’s podcast!

Wonder what the misspelling of Independ”A”nce on the bottom of the vinyl means? Is it part of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party? Is it a real scrapper in which the Chinese factory worker cannot spell? Or is it that the spellchecker was not working on the graphic designer’s computer? Interesting catch Totoro.
