There's finally a page on the official site for "Be Magical" items!
So far, the full-sized costumes just say "Coming Soon," but we can get real details and photos on some of the special items being released for the small keychain/strap plushes on 6/10.
"Ten Magical Tops" are T-shirt + strap sets in 10 different colourways. Five for Duffy and five for Shellie May. They're a bargain at only ￥1500 for each set! The Mickey-mark gem charm on the strap and the strap cord itself are the same color as the matching tees. I won't list all the colors here. Check the site! Click on each shirt to change the preview image. You'll be able to see close-ups of each strap/shirt set and see the shirts modeled on the actual bears. They feature the new "sitting pose" strap bears on the site, so I'm not sure if these shirts could stretch to fit the slightly larger "badge" bears or not. I imagine, though, that they probably could fit either.
The straps are cute, but I dunno about the tees. It's really well priced for a Duffy release, and the straps are really nice. I'm sure I'll buy at least one for the Duffy charm. But it kinda bugs me that the design team decided to make the one brown design for Shellie May. It really feels like that shoulda been Duffy, so that the face would make the background of the shirt feel kinda like Duffy's head... You know what I mean? I think Shellie's shirts with two shades of pink and one purple really do that effectively. It just seems like a design disappointment to me...
I the little "Duffel Bags" for the straps, though!^^ And I really love that they ONLY COST ￥500!!! I'll definitely be buying a couple of these! Although, here too, I kinda think it would've been nice to do a pink one for Shellie May with her own logo on it.
There's also a "Happy Duffy" chocolate cream-filled chewy mochi sweet that is molded really, really well! No cups or plates listed this time, though...weird. It's ￥420.
I'm glad to see something happening with both Duffy and the anniversary, but I still can't wait for more details about the pendants and the full-sized costume. These are cute, and I'll definitely buy them, but I'm still itching for a big, whiz-bang new release. The pricing on these items and the relatively small scale of the release suggests to me that cutbacks may have been made to the Duffy "Be Magical" goods lineup, thinking that people still aren't spending as much on nonessential items. I hope that the pendants are definitely still coming, and really I still hope to see cups and stickers and other kinds of goods, too. I would LOVE a Duffy-ear Sorcerer Hat fan cap!
I wish the pendants were posted. I'm guessing they'll be added when the full-sized costumes are updated.
