Thank you for posting that, and the time stamp. I am surprised by her harsh opinion of that film. I remember it as one of the better Disney films, and thought the subsequent few films she mentioned were a step down in quality. But she seemed to think they were a step up.

I’ll have to go back and rewatch it, from a design point of view. See if I can note that “lumpy characters” point of view she is referring to.

Yeah, hard disagree with her on Beauty and the Beast animation. Hopefully someone overrules but I guess I know not to hold my breath for that film now.

Honestly I do think mixed waves is more ideal than themed if they could get out more than a wave every 7-8 months. It’s the momentum that kills mixed waves. For the pace they’re doing now themed is a better way to go I think.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that opinion on Beauty and the Beast is bad. And I don’t say that as someone who even wants figures based on the film, but that film is Disney flexing its animation muscle after doing a good, but cheap, job on The Little Mermaid and the tech demo that is Rescuers Down Under.

The BatB thing is SUCH a monumentally bad take. Let's ignore that it's just.. not really accurate anyway. Let's also ignore that you shouldn't be casually dismissing an incredibly popular Disney movie for your DISNEY ULTIMATES toy line. Forget all that.

These figures, so far as have been released or shown, are not what I'd call Animation Accurate. At least not in the sense that they're necessarily stylized to look exactly like the art style of the film they're based on. So even if the animation was a little too frumpy or rounded or whatever nonsense... why on earth would that even matter to the 3D action figure version you'd be making? Even a casual glance at Google shows various statues and ornaments and shit like that based on Beauty... that have none of the issues she was complaining about.

Beauty and the Beast is consistently in the top 5 on Disney movie lists, often times I see it at #1. She may not personally like it, but that's a bad take.

Got a notice from BBTS that they are now expecting Wave 2 in October.

I'm trying to ignore anyone who thinks that Beauty and the Beast is anything but an animation classic. (I mean, after a decade or two of fairly "flat" animation Disney breaks out the multi-plane camera, has swooping and spinning camera movements, utilizes the beginnings of Computer animation for the "Be Our Guest" sequence, they do some great lighting/shadow effects... is it as tight animation-wise as say Snow White or Pinocchio, no, but what is?)

And the ballroom. Lets not forget the ballroom.

Sigh.

I so miss seeing what kind of jaw-dropping hand drawn magic the studio would come up with. Mermaid and Beauty and Aladdin were just dazzling.

Was I in a bad mood the other day and bought Pinocchio just for Jiminy as a form of retail therapy?

Yeah. Maybe.

But no regrets. After getting Chip and Dale with Pete, I figured it was a matter of time until I found a way to get Jiminy too. So if anyone is interested in Pinocchio minus him, hit me up, he’s going cheap.

I also have Jemeny displayed with Sora (I use the kh3 Bring Arts one). Great figure. Or little static piece of plastic.
