Looks like few good ones this year. Can't wait for the $10 sale.

Amazing.


The UK has quite a few Copper & Todd items. Maybe they are re-releasing it this fall? I haven't heard.

The Gus and Jaq ornament went up today on the Disney Store website.

So, the big question:

Do you think that on Force Friday, there will be Star Wars Sketchbook ornaments for the first time ever?

Oh, and the answer is YES!
http://www.disneystore.co.uk/darth-vader-decoration/mp/83105/1500055/
http://www.disneystore.co.uk/star-wars-princess-leia-and-r2-d2-decoration/mp/83107/1500055/
http://www.disneystore.co.uk/yoda-talking-decoration/mp/83149/1500055/

I have to have the Leia and R2D2 ornament! Darth Vader looks good, but I have too many I like now. Yoda looks weird. I prefer Hallmark's talking Yoda ornament.

Hopefully they'll be on the US site. I can't see why they wouldn't be.

You have to love time zone differences. wink

I like the three Star Wars ornaments, but wished they would have had something from the new movie.

I actually wasn't expecting them to do anything with the new movie. They did pretty much what I expected. Except I would have thought Luke Skywalker would have had an ornament. I think they'll go with the new movie next year, pulling from actual scenes.

It's also interesting that they did not put the brass year tag on the Star Wars ornaments just like the Marvel ornaments.

So far, this is a much bigger year for the Sketchbook line. They haven't even added personalized ornaments yet. I was hoping that meant they weren't doing them, but when I found the Star Wars ornaments on the UK site, I found a personalized Miles from Tomorrowland ornament. I still think they'll pull more Sketchbook ornaments out. I cannot imagine that they wouldn't do a frilly Anna. There is even a space in the image numbering for Anna.

Same here! That's when I always get them. Looks like I'll be getting about two dozen this year. Except that Yoda. Something doesn't look right about him.

Et tu, Disney?

http://www.disneystore.com/mickeys-christmas-carol-figure-play-set/mp/1383810/1000265/

Seriously? No ghosts there either?

Set's pretty cute...I'm persuaded to buy it. They'd probably look nice as a little tabletop grouping. Wish it had the ghosts! Besides Goofy as Jacob Marley. But, they still did more than Hallmark did.

If you like the playsets, there is a sale right now for $10 (regularly $14.95).
http://www.disneystore.com/tinks-treasure/mn/1001232/
However, the Mickey's Christmas Carol set isn't included. Nor is the Star Wars Force Awakens (I figured that one wouldn't be.)

Of course, the other play sets are on sale for $10. I wish this one was as well. :-)

I am super dissapointed with this years musical ornaments. I loved that last years sounder so crisp and clear with beautiful detailing. This year they seem much cheaper. I am super excited to finally have a WallE and Eve ornament, though. smile

I've only bought the Aladdin musical one, but I have to disagree. I thought the details on the Aladdin one were much better than the Rapunzel and Elsa ones from last year. The figures are bigger than those two. Elsa had low detailing on her ornament, especially, and both sacrificed the character size in favor of a large base to hide the musical component. I was happier to have the melody with the lyrics instead of just the lyrics. Yeah, the sound's not nearly as good as Hallmark, but it's not Hallmark-branded, so I don't have as much expectations for the sound. And even Hallmark's sound is still not as good as Carlton Cards.

The Tangled one's details are not the best, but the focus is on the boat, and anytime the Disney Store ornament has smaller human characters, they lack detail especially in the face. The Baymax and Hiro ornament from last year is an excellent example. Baymax looks great, but Hiro...not so much. Pictures of the original Tangled ornament of the two in the boat has the same lack of detailing in the face, so it's not surprising that this one lacks it too. I'll still buy it as well as the Ariel one. I was going to skip Ariel until I saw Flounder. I don't have a Flounder ornament yet (I'm up to 221 different Disney characters in ornament form).

Anyone here get the D23 Frozen limited set? I just got mine in the mail yesterday, and I was surprised at how large the figures are. I really like the Kristoff/Olaf ornament (it's the main reason I bought the set since I wanted a figural Kristoff). The Elsa ornament actually has fake "gems" on the dress, something you can't see in pictures of it on ebay since everyone takes pictures of them in box. It's a nice set but pricey. The retail was $59.95, I believe. They also had a Toy Story 20th anniversary limited set. I don't really want the Toy Story set since it's just Buzz and Woody (both concept versions and final versions). Both sets were limited at 700.
