I started buying a lot of these but I had to stop because it's such an expensive thing to continue on. My original plan B was to just get Main Street and then a few iconic attractions, but now I haven't even gotten that far. All the main street ones I have are still in their boxes. Only the castle is displayed.
I really wish they would give more information on the WDW pieces.
Well, since the release is at Disneyland, I wouldn't expect them to talk about the WDW pieces, the same way I wouldn't expect them to talk about the Disneyland pieces at WDW. I would expect that they would be giving lots more information about the WDW pieces during a WDW release. They'll answer questions if you ask about WDW pieces though. We only asked about the villains character pack because we want it. I don't care about the WDW line, so I don't ask questions about it or post any updates about it. Don't know if anyone else does.
One bit of very interesting news did come out during the discussion - March 18, 2007 marks the 40th anniversary of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, and there is apparently a special event planned in conjunction with the anniversary. There is no information available about what the event will include, what the pricing will be, or when tickets will go on sale. However, Olszewski Studios has been commissioned to create some merchandise pieces for the event.
Woot! I'll be keeping my eye open for that event announcement!
I was on my yearly trip to the park over the July 4th weekend and folded like a house of cards after a lengthy conversation with a World of Disney clerk, who was just OBSESSED with the things. Well, his obsession was infectious, as he showed me all the insane details and awesome lighting effects of the minatures. I was still on the fence when he mentioned that there are future plans for an itty-bitty Main Street Electrical Parade.
I HAVE to ask....
Was it Mathew?
He is my favorite CM outside of the park... and I know that he LOVES the collection.
