Two New Exclusives Appear

Two New Exclusives Appear

Well, the exclusives have started again. I know there are some of us that do not like exclusives. And there are some that enjoy the hunt. Rather than debating the merits of exclusive models, I’m just going to skip to the part where we can appreciate the designs, and I can let you know where […]

Build: Imperial AT-ATs

Build: Imperial AT-ATs

Yeah, I built two of them! What you see here is the classic silver AT-AT model, and the Disney Parks Exclusive colored version. And while this is the first time I’ve built the colored one, the silver is a replacement for a model that got heavily damaged a while back when I had the unfortunate […]

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.

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. So, seeing as I was halfway there for another errand today, I decided to drop by and confirm a juicy rumor I’d heard… namely that […]

Build: Droid Depot R2-D2

Build: Droid Depot R2-D2

Some might see the exclusive Droid Depot models (only available in Galaxy’s Edge locations at Disney Parks) as a blatant cash grab. And, if I’m honest, they probably are. But I still love them. 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 […]
