I be likein' that leather jacket! And the map... Oh yeah, got's to have me one of those!!
Okay you've got to stop doing this to me. I see your link, I click it and then I realize I can't afford to do the big events, but I would love to get some of the reasonably priced merchandise, Event T-shirt and Event pin. That's all! I swear! :devil:
YOUR Leather Jacket looks great! I'm sure you will enjoy it!
WOW, I am going to be so broke, I hope they will have enough left to distribute to the Park.....I want almost all of it! Especially the Castle Day/Night, and the pendant and.....oh could go on for ages!
Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
I only really want the Marquee... everything else isn't all that impressive. The big figure 50th SB Castle is nice and the minitures of the ride vehicles are nice, but other than that... nothing too great. I'm glad I didnt pay a big price to go to the event, I would have been sorely disappointed.
Finally, Circarama can rest easy knowing he will soon have a jacket!
Disneynut,I need to talk to you about the RSP. I know that you have been to many of these merchandise events. I have only been to ToT last year and I didn't sign up for any merchandise. Is it difficult to get a specific item(leather jacket, for instance) when it is limited to 200?
What has been your experience with the RSP? Is this a good time to start a new thread on RSP experiences and/or tips?
I have re-evaluated my position on the "limited" Disneyland map.
I'm gonna try to get the jacket, and I like the map. But honestly, the map is seriously over-priced ($350) considering what you get. I mean, yeah, it's limited to 100, it's probably printed on heavy poster stock or even thin cardboard, but it's the same map that they just released, and for that price, I can almost buy a really cool black leather jacket at Disneyland with "Mickey the Bandleader" on the back for $385.
The last time that Disney did this was in 2000. They produced 100 reproductions of the original 1958 Disneyland map. I don't know if they tried to sell them at a merchandise event. But I can tell you that I got mine on ebay from Disney Auctions for $50 with a certificate of authenticity!! Although I am a HUGE collector of Disneyland maps, I am not going to swallow the "limited to..." hook. And if i'm not buyin' it, then I would guess that alot of other people won't either. I want more VALUE for my hard earned dollars. NOTE TO WDES AND MERCHANDISING: We love you, but you need to re-evaluate the prices that you are charging for items that are easily produced (i.e. pins, posters, maps, tickets, etc.) Simply stating that it's "limited" isn't gonna sell the stuff that you're selling. $350 for an item that is costing you $10(at best) to produce is WRONG.
