Build: Goofy

Build: Goofy

It’s time for another other-side-of-the-world exclusive model build! Thanks again to Instagram’s @tomz961 for the incredible gift of sending me the three character models that are exclusive to Disneyland Shanghai. It’s been a while since I built Donald, and I promised to save Pluto for last, so I recently built Goofy. And yes, I did […]

Update on Some Exclusives

Update on Some Exclusives

Thanks to the avid internet sleuthing of several builders, I have a few updates on how to get your hands on some exclusives that you may not know about. First off, via reddit’s Drummer7416, who got it via interface2x, we have a link to pre-order the Books-A-Million exclusive Hogwarts Express (in color, with tracks)! Unfortunately, […]

Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

It turns out that where I thought that the Hobbytown in Little Rock was closed at some point, it actually was just relocated, and Google Maps didn’t update their data.

And I had the joy of building R2-D2 thanks to my college roommate and long-time best friend, who bought a couple […]

Build: Donald Duck

Build: Donald Duck

This fun, quirky, and blocky rendering of Donald Duck is one of those really hard-to-get Disney Parks exclusives that is only available out of the Disneyland in Shanghai, China. I am humbled and honored to be able to build this model, because it was sent to me by a fellow builder, Instagram’s @tomz971. Not only […]

HobbyTown’s In-Store Exclusives

So if you watch AnimateOrange’s news videos, or you read my Rumor Mill post when I first published it, you’ll know that there were some rumblings about HobbyTown getting some in-store exclusive colorized versions of the Ford Mustang and Model T. Well, I’ve finally got your confirmation right here, with some photographic evidence! Personally, I’m […]

BAM! Exclusive Hogwarts Express?

BAM! Exclusive Hogwarts Express?

Say what? My inside source shared a few details about this new exclusive Harry Potter model that’s going to be coming to Books-A-Million this fall (October-ish? Also, possibly appearing at Second and Charles, part of the Books-A-Million family). I was a bit surprised, because it seemed like my local BAM was clearing out their Metal […]
