Disney snowglobes that make you go hmmmm.

Decided to take a stroll through ebay UK today and found these two snowglobes that I've never seen before. The Dumbo one seems to be missing something, don't you think? Doesn't seem likely that Disney would produce anything with just the clowns from Dumbo on it. I'm guessing there is supposed to be a Dumbo finial on the top.
The Jasmine is interesting too. Jasmine in pink? Appears to be authentic and there is a Princess series that this would fit into very nicely but I have never seen one of Jasmine in that series but have seen the others in the series countless times on ebay. So, is it authentic? Is it an unproduced prototype?
If you have answers or a picture of the complete Dumbo snowglobe, please let me know so they can be included in the guide.

Mickey as Indiana Jones cel

On September 12th, the newest limited edition cel from Disney's Hollywood Studios will become available. Limited to 1500 pieces it will cost $125 to $290 depending on what you want with it.
  • $125 gets it unframed.
  • $215 gets a black frame. (seriously? 90 bucks for a frame?)
  • $240 gets the frame and the pin pictured below (LE750)
  • $265 gets the frame, the pin and a postcard.
  • $290 gets a gold frame. (no pin or postcard)
If you want it but can't make it to the artist signing , you can pre-order before september 11 and it will still be autographed.

Here They Come Again

These snowglobes are now available on Jack was previously available in Europe. The Halloween one is from last year. The others are from previous years being made again.
I hope this trend of laying off artists and creative people and just producing designs used in previous years doesn't spread.

D23 Magazine #3 is glowing

I received my copy of the D23 Magazine in the mail today. I haven't had time for more then a quick glance through but noticed while paging through that the cover had a fuzzy feel in a certain place. Sure enough, the lettering and one of the ghosts glow in the dark! Pretty cool and totally unexpected.

Evil Queen Figurine (Hey! That rhymes!)

Sideshow Collectibles is manufacturing this for a 2010 release. It will be a limited edition and cost 284.99. They haven't decided yet what the edition size will be.

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to celebrate the magic of Disney's first animated feature, SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, with its very first Disney Collectible offering, the Evil Queen Premium Format Figure. Each piece is individually painted and finished to exacting standards, dressed in a detailed, real fabric costume, each with its own unique quality and detail that is the trademark of a handcrafted Sideshow Collectibles product. The Evil Queen Premium Format Figure is created here in breathtakingly stunning detail, a perfect addition to any collection or Disney display.

Up Action Figures? Nope.

There are several sites reporting that these are UP action figures that are being showcased at the Tokyo Toy Show. Sideshow Collectibles has them listed as being expensive vinyl figures. I guess maybe it depends on your definition of action figure.

6 new snowglobes at Walt Disney World

As promised here are the new snowglobes at Walt Disney World. Where I took the pics, didn't have the Villians globe so I grabbed that pic off ebay but surprise, the emporium on Main Street had an additional small globe, the one of Thumper on a log. All are mini's for 12.95 except the Villians globe which is medium sized. Don't know the price since Emporium didn't have it.

The UK Disney Store website has reintroduced this photo snowglobe of Roger & Jessica that was available here in the states in 2007.

Tron Legacy advs in San Diego

If your a Tron fan, you have to read this story at by Alex Billington about his Disney sponsored ecperience in San Diego last night. It gives me high hopes for the D23 Expo though they probably won't have anything as cool to do.

Teaser Images

Sideshow Collectibles has posted some teaser images of Disney products coming up that I found interesting. The Vinyl Mickey doll series seems to be getting pretty wild and a lot of fun. Too bad they cost so much. People would buy these like crazy in the parks if they were mass produced and affordable. This is a vinyl series I could enjoy instead of theat Vinylmation nonsense. I was surprised to see a Super Goof anything and the stylized 70's version Herbie is insteresting.
