    Strange things are afoot...

    I'm at WDW this weekend and there are NO 17" Duffys available at the parks or at DTD. I asked a CM at Once Upon A Toy what's going on & she said she heard they're all "sold out". Yeah. Right.

    If you go on Duffy's official Facebook page, you'll see the profile photo has changed. If you click on it, it's captioned "Duffy's New Look" or something like that. It looks like his foot has been redesigned. My guess is they pulled all the 17" Duffys and soon will put out the "redesigned" one. This is REALLY weird but I'm hoping they also changed his fur back to the original kind & made his face cute and ears big again. If this "redesign" looks bad I am going to have to hurt someone. Why are they even messing with his overall design?

    We return you now to our regularly scheduled programming...

    Re: Strange things are afoot...

    I hope they've changed him back, too. I was just comparing my two 17" Duffys, one from WDW in late 2011 and one from DLR just a couple weeks ago and they are SO different. I love that they're unique from each other and they are both special, but I do prefer the original look.

    Re: Strange things are afoot...

    I gotta say, I am digging that foot! It looks so sculpted and awesome! Maybe Monty Maldovan really does love Duffy, and maybe Disney is getting ready to throw the full force of their limitless genius and astounding talent behind him. The only reason — the only reason — OLC Duffy is limitlessly superior in every way to Disney Duffy is that they give him everything they've got. Well, that…and Cape Cod!^^ But if The Walt Disney Company has finally decided to do more than just pimp the Duffy name to sell products… If they've finally decided to adopt him as their own and roll him out with glory as only they can… If this is really happening, things are about to get very interesting for Duffy fans… I am more excited about the US/global Duffy initiative than I have ever been. This just might be what we've all been waiting for, and Duffy may be on his way to his destiny as a global household name. Bring it on, Disney! I've always believed. Prove me right…please.

    That's not the Duffy with the new foot though. That one is the one from WDW...so it's "OG" Duffy that has the nice sculpted foot. I'm curious what this new look is though!!

    Oh, but the Facebook photo of the foot pad looks great!! Maybe that's what you meant?

    Re: Strange things are afoot...

    I'm nervous as to what this could mean for Duffy! I hope that DuffyD is right and they're putting the love and attention into Duffy. I am curious as to when Duffy will be coming out again. Lets hope they are bringing him up to higher quality standards. I've just looked and they are still selling Duffy on the Disney Parks website. Anyone with any info or updates please share. I will be in WDW on the 28 of this month so hopefully he will be back out again!


    Duffy is coming along too!

    Re: Strange things are afoot...

    Looks to me like the fur may be a thicker, shorter pile. And is it just me, or is that a touch darker, too? Perhaps he's gonna look more like the walkaround mascot? I'm very optimistic about this. Now if only they'd re-release the storybook and put back the message bottle and Cape Cod elements, combined with seasonal, predictable costume/merchandise release cycles of consistently high quality… To me, this image points in that direction. To me, this looks like someone actually loves Duffy.

    Whatever they do I hope they give him lots of love and bring up the quality. But don't jack up the price so high that its hard for guest to get him. I'm all for paying for great quality but I also,what guest to fall in love with Duffy and afford to be able to take him home.

    the whole point in buying things in the park is to remember your good times and dream about the next trip.

    I, too, hope you're right, DuffyD. I was feeling very cynical until I read your posts.

    That's what I was thinking of when I titled the thread! I quote the "Strange things are afoot at the Circle K" line ALL the time.

    Re: Strange things are afoot...

    I'm on the fence about this "new look". The picture does look like really nice quality, but I'm skeptical about anything until I see it in person. I think it would be cool if they made him look like the walk around character. I'm trying to stay optimistic...
