Hey guys! This blog post is gonna be about Disney figures because BBTS finally put up the "Couture de Force" series for pre-order. Yay!

I've been eyeing these ladies since the first batch was announced but sadly there were very few shops who sold them at first and all of them were either not shipping outside of the USA, or were shipping at excruciating prices. And well, it's always a pain to see that shipping for a 65$ figure is worth 60$ or more. So yeah, at first I wanted Belle. And then when Rapunzel was announced I decided she was definitely the priority. I love Rapunzel. And that sculpt is sooo pretty. Dat hair! I was going to wait on European eBay stores since that's how I got my Enesco Rapunzel bust some months back. But yay now BBTS has them! For what is also a high shipping fee! *fml*

Anywho... I am definitely getting Rapunzel now. And am thinking of also adding Belle or Jasmine in there. I'm not quite sure which one yet, because I love "The Beauty and the Beast" and Belle... but I also really like "Aladdin" and Jasmine's outfit looks very nice in that belly-dancing Oriental sort of way. Meh, I'll see. First off I need to make sure I can pay for Rapunzel and the rest of what I have ordered that month :))

Here are the mademoiselles in question, nicely hidden away in a spoiler tag because it's a picture-heavy collection:

They're available for pre-order on BBTS here: www.bigbadtoyst...

... as well as a lot of other places, provided you live in the US, France, or the UK. Or you know, just any country that people have heard of before :)).

I do know better than to expect outstanding quality from Enesco. I have one of their busts and while I love the sculpt (Rapunzel, of course <3) and feel like the face is very in character, the cast and some of the painting is very sloppy. Especially given that the bust is supposedly a LE, so you'd have higher quality expectations from it... But some of these are just beautiful. I love the sculpt on Rapunzel and their faces are all very nice. Some are over-doing it a bit (I'm looking at you, Ariel! And even Rapunzel if I were to be 100% honest with myself... though I still love it haha) but all in all it's a nice collection imo.

Now I can just dream that they'll continue the series and manage to also touch on Megara and maybe Pocahontas. But mainly Megara. While Rapunzel is my favorite princess, Meg's my all-time favorite Disney character and I would like to own a nice figure of her...

So anywho, which one of the above ladies is your favorite? Again, I wish I had an option to let people pick more than one in the poll but since that's not available, we'll have to make do with the comments section :).

maggie7 vuotta sitten#1754913I was looking at these the other day! I grab a lot of the Medicom vinyl ones when they're available, and I have to say I prefer those as they're true to character IMHO and simple. Just the character, exactly as they look.
These figures almost look gaudy to me...? I don't know, it's just too much for my tastes lol! I think they're well done just not for me. However, with that being said Maleficent looks marvelous!


Ah Medicom... how I still dream of that Jessica Rabbit... <3.

I know they've got a bit too much stuff on them but I kinda like that, for some of them at least. Tink and Ariel are too much even for me though :)). And yes, all the villains look amazing but for whatever reason, I don't ever buy villains. My mum once insisted I get a Cruella figure from Jim Shore and I kept refusing because... I have a Dalmatian and it'd be so weird owning a figure of a person who wants to kill Dalmatian puppies. I guess I'm a bit of a nutter myself :P

OhMyBex077 vuotta sitten#1753688Let's just say that I dislike the movie, the story, the prince, and the princess. I probably wouldn't be able to explain why without offending a bunch of people, so I'm going to keep my mouth shut. >_<

Ah, alrighty then. That's fine though, I myself don't like a bunch of movies that others adore ("Cinderella", "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", the very recent "Princess and the Frog" - and "Despicable Me" if we're also counting non-Disney movies). So hey, to each their own :)

Oh wow, these are actually really nice. Rapunzel and Maleficent especially.

Sleeping Beauty is my hands-down favorite Disney film. Aurora and Maleficent look gorgeous *drools*

OhMyBex077 vuotta sitten#1750525I think the one of Belle looks the best. I'm crazy about that skirt. But I would never buy Beauty and the Beast merchandise.

Why not? Do you dislike the movie or...?

kevinlowl7 vuotta sitten#1751196I'd usually go for Ariel but, WHAT? o.o
Surprised no one else mentioned this but, Tinkerbell and Ariel eyes look weird.


Yeah, I noticed that too. I think it's one of those "but this eye position looks just fine when I draw it in 2D!!!" things; because they both have the same issue: one eye is looking in one direction and the other, elsewhere.
