Disneyland 2015 Trip

10952295_656437557800027_5393939884642249217_nLast month my company treated my department to a trip to Disneyland! I was over the moon at the thought of getting my mitts on some cool Disney-Star Wars exclusives. Here is my report from the trip:

Alright so the big Star Wars store ( Star Trader) there didn’t have quite as much exclusive stuff as I was expecting – I was looking for vinylmation guys – little Disney Character toys figures dressed up like SW characters – nope, none 😦

They did have a Donald Duck/Darth Maul mug – several Disney themed t-shirts (my favorite being Darth Vader on the Dumbo ride – I didn’t see that until I was leaving.) Lots of shirts and stuff for kiddos. They had a big “build your own lightsaber” station – kids went nuts over that.

There were 2 really high end girly things that I drooled over but considering I’m buying a new computer this weekend I couldn’t justify getting them. They had a cute vinyl bowling ball style purse that looked like R2-D2 w/ matching wallet and they had some exclusive fabric purses by Dooney and Burke (I didn’t bother even asking the prices on those – I knew those would be expensive.)

They had lots of funny hats and the Yoda and Chewie backpacks.They had big vinyl Yodas who just look weird to me because he’s too tall hence why I passed on him. They had cute little stuffed ewoks for the kids, there was a Hasbro vehicle of some sort that was a Disneyland exclusive that I didn’t look too closely at.

I picked up a Vader Helmet (the back side of it) that has mouse ears on top of it. They also had a large stuffed laytex Jabba the Hutt that I picked up (much to the confusion of the people at the desk “wait someone is actually buying Jabba?”) He was only $30 and even though he’s facing the wrong way – he’ll work great for being displayed w/ my 12″ figures and is hella cheaper than trying to find the Sideshow version.

I really wanted that R2 bag. I totally spaced on taking photos in the store.

They’re definitely on my list of items to pick up, I wasn’t about to get them there and have to haul them around the park all day though. Not necessary since you can get them at the D stores or online.

They could’ve used having some cool posters for Star Tours. There were a few shirts aimed at women but not much else other than the purses – but there was enough stuff that I was satisfied w/ my purchases. I want to go again now when I’m armed w/ more cash :p

The upgrade of Star Tours by the way is AMAZING.

Also photographing my new 12″ Hasbro Luke who although he’s cheap I think his sculpt is great.
