These Funko Pop! Vinyl figures get better with each new wave. Just enough detail to make each character easy to recognize. The packaging for these 136 odd figures from FunKo is done with the same care and attention to detail as the posable vinyl figures themselves. We will have to wait until January for Series 3 of the Disney Pop! figures.
Series 3 is anticipated to be released exclusively at Disney Store and DisneyStore.com in January 2012

From MK Mouse license plate to Mickey Mouse Ferris wheel, woman's Disney collection has it all | MLive.com
Here are a few of the highlights [of her collection]: A Mickey Mouse-shaped hot water bottle, a child’s radio with a wax roller that turns to play music, lamps that have Mickey and Goofy turning the light on and off while speaking; 6-inch tall Mickey and Minnie toys stuffed with sawdust; hand-carved and poseable wood Mickey and Minnie figurines from Mexico; a complete set of the 101 Dalmatians in a felt-lined carrying case from a McDonald’s restaurant; a statue featuring one of the bears like those in the Country Bear Jamboree attraction at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., (it was back-ordered and they didn’t think they would get one); and Tiffany-style lamps with metal character bases and silhouettes that are revealed in the shade when the lamp is turned on.
