I was not aware of a running change on the top hat, I'll ask about it.

I thought it was some kind of mold-release agent, because it comes off when you touch it. It looks nice in the package, but a single swipe with your finger and it's off.

...and then the damn kids are flying around the livingroom. Careful with those happy thoughts, folks!

So I picked up an extra set of these to use as fodder, and I decided to use Tinkerbell to make my daughter her first custom:

Those of you without little girls won't recognize her, but that's Periwinkle, who is somehow Tinkerbell's sister (I don't know the particulars). She's a pretty simple formula: Quicksilver's hair, the legs from Peter Pan's John, and a little blue paint.sorcerer.gif

Damn. Glad I didn't pick up too many extras yet.

It does seem as if all the Peter Pan stuff has been discounted; I don't think any of it sold very well at all. And Disney is usually pretty good about clearancing things and not letting them hang around. You can get old Pops for $2-3, and they are still making more of those. So I don't think we should panic yet and assume these were a disaster and that we won't be getting any more Disney Minimates.

It's nice to have such cheap custom fodder out there, though, particularly with the new short arms and legs. I already used my sets to make a set of customs that I'll be showing off shortly. And there's some other cool unique pieces there. I used the feet from the Lost Boy in the bunny suit to upgrade my Usagi Yojimbo, and the skunk's tail is perfect for Hezbollah of the Starjammers. And, with a little brown paint, might do nicely as a squirrel's tail....

Holy crap! I need to source out someone to hook me up with a couple sets of these. My kids camp is having a mini-Free Comic Book Day and I think these would make awesome door prizes since they will appeal to all ranges of kids at the camp not just the boys who already are asking if I have extra Minimates to bring to camp for them! If anyone here is stocking up and would mind helping me out with this please let me know!

So I took an early lunch and headed down to my Disney Store... I bought 2 extra sets each of the box sets, and one of the boat. I really don't want another boat, but I need Wendy's head for a custom, and I don't want to steal my daughter's (my daughter's Wendy's head, I should clarify). Anybody want another boat? I'll trade for a figure.

BTW, Jeff, I can probably help you out. PM me.
