Toy Story 3 Snowglobe

Courtesy of Velvet, comes this sneak peek at the Toy Story 3 snowglobe that will be available on  Thanks V.

and so it goes

As many of you have probably noticed, the Disney Snowglobe Collectors Guide has gone to mostly posting only 1 snowglobe per day.  The main thing contributing to this is the fact that I'm just plain busy doing other things.  Luckily this has coincided with the fact that I'm almost to the end of my current research.  There will still be another month or two before there isn't a post every day.  I'm almost to the first goal.  Finally.  Looks like there will be a little over 2800 globes in the guide when we reach that point.  I will still have some other sources that I need to look through for additional globes and then I hope to go through post by post and edit out mistakes and streamline a few things before eventually getting to the price guide aspect of tracking prices on ebay.  It will all progress as I have the time which I expect I will have less of in the future.

Things have been a bit slow here at this blog also as I don't have the opportunity to visit the parks at WDW anymore and the lack of interesting items appearing on the internet.  I did visit Magic Kingdom for alittle while this morning and am sad to report that there were no new snowglobes and I didn't see much else that was new that I found interesting froma collectors standpoint.

One thing that did standout was the huge wall that runs from the Pinocchio restaurant, through Fantasyland and of into Toontown somewhere.  I guess site preperation is well under way for the Fantasy Forest addition.  The tree that was the centerpiece for the Winnie the Pooh play area has been moved to the attraction side of the street but it to is behind a wall and you can't tell if it is being moved there or if it is just being stored there until later.

Don't forget, Saturday is FREE comic book day!  Take everyone you know to the local comic book shop and get your free copy of the Toy Story comic book.  If they don't have it, ask them "What were you thinking?" and settle for whatever they do have.  If they carry the Disney comics from Boom Studios, check them out.  Most of them are pretty good.

Disney MLB Statues

You may have heard that Major League Baseball and Disney have teamed up to make money, er, collectible statues.  Here's the press release from

Major League Baseball Properties and Disney Consumer Products today unveiled 36 different designs of MLB-themed Mickey Mouse collectible statuettes and related apparel and merchandise in celebration of the 2010 MLB All-Star Week festivities taking place July 9-13 in Anaheim, Calif. as part of a new collaboration between the organizations. The statuettes are replicas of seven and a half foot tall, life-size statues that will be placed at key Southern California landmarks leading up to the All-Star Game on July 13.

This special line of commemorative collectibles, commissioned in conjunction with MLB and Disney Consumer Products' licensee Forever Collectibles, will be uniquely decorated with bold graphics featuring logos of each of the 30 MLB Clubs as well as an American League and a National League design. In addition, four statuettes will feature various All-Star Game themes. All are available in a 7.5-inch size through beginning today and later this month through and additional retailers including MLB stadium shops, Walgreens and Dick's Sporting Goods. Photos of all variations are available at and
The 36 life-size statues are also decorated using the same logos and designs as the statuettes. With a height of 7.5 feet and weighing 989 pounds, these MLB-themed statues will begin to appear at landmarks throughout Southern California closer to the 2010 All-Star Game. Exact locations will be made public at a later date.
"With the All-Star Game returning to Anaheim, now is the perfect time for these two iconic American brands to team up and celebrate the premiere sporting event of the summer," said Bob DuPuy, President & Chief Operating Officer, Major League Baseball. "These Mickey Mouse statuettes will allow fans of all 30 Clubs to share in the excitement of All-Star Summer even if they can't make it to Anaheim for the festivities."
"Baseball and Mickey Mouse really connect families and with the All-Star Game being in our backyard this year, it made perfect sense to combine the magic of Disney with America's favorite pastime," said Stephen Teglas, vice president and general manager of Fashion & Home North America at Disney Consumer Products. "We look forward to delighting fans of both brands with our unique products and collectibles."
In addition to the statuettes, starting next month, fans can obtain a wide variety of merchandise and apparel featuring Major League Baseball and beloved Disney characters, including caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, drink ware, pins, throws and beach towels.

Here's the pics, taken as a sneak peek from but allready available on for 24.99 each.
Not being a sports fan, I have 0 interest in these but to each their own and I can certainly understand wanting one of your favorite team if you also are a Mickey fan.

Oceans is Amazing!

Just got back from seeing Oceans at AMC Pleasure Island.  This is an amazing, must see film for anyone with the slightest interest in nature or wildlife.  I guarantee you that there is something in this film that you have never seen before.  Something like this would make an amazing Soarin ride!  I loved every minute of it!  It did get a little preachy at the end about conservation and so on.  I would rather the film simply stood on its own merits and inspired without that but I can't fault the filmakers for including it as so many people have to be hit over the head repeatedly before a message sinks in.

Disney Pook-a-looz Series 2

Disney has introduced a 2nd series of Pook-a-Looz allready.  I saw these in person at Animal Kingdom the other day and have to admit they are better then I originally thought.  Still not my cup of tea, you understand, but some of them are kind of cute.  The Dumbo one was pretty nice, but I probably feel like that because it is very close to what the character actually looks like.  I'm also envisioning a small child clutching the Oogie Boogie one.  It would make for a great Addams Family type picture.
