While on a recent visit to Disneyland Paris, we spotted a piece of merchandise that took us by surprise — highly-detailed doll replicas of Mickey and Minnie as their meet and greet character selves, dressed in their platinum Disney100 outfits.
Mickey and Minnie Disney100 Character Costume Toy Replicas – €229
For years, Tokyo Disney Resort has sold their own toy replicas of Disney Parks meet and greet characters in their iconic costumes. It seems now that Disney themselves have finally caught up with figures of their own, arriving first at Disneyland Paris.
This set features Mickey and Minnie in their platinum Disney100 outfits, styled just as the meet and greet characters are at the Disney Parks.
These figures are articulated with joints at the elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles for posing, but unlike their Japanese counterparts, they are not flocked in the same way as the real-life character costumes.
Check out our video of the toys below:
There’s no way to get these toys at the domestic Disney Parks just yet, but we’ll be holding out hope that they’ll eventually make their way to Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Have you ever wanted one of Japan’s versions of the meet and greet toys? Will you purchase this Disney100 set if it ever comes to the U.S. parks? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
