Also, I love that the kids are short and pudgy, just like all the other designs. They are stylized, not photo-realistic. And as I meantioned before, I find them cute.
OMG! Where are the leg warmers? LOLOriginally Posted by mamawantsvinyls
I like this series, especially because it's ALL one kind of figure. No hoping for a "food" Cutester and getting a kid-in-a-costume, or vice versa I suppose.
Plus I think the new mold looks good on these figures, and Pirates. They would've looked strange with the big nose in the middle of their face!
I don't think I will care to get too many, but I know my daughters will!
Not liking the new mold at all, like others said, if it had something to do with disney I could get over the new mold. but just don't like them
Thanks for the updated information. I can without a doubt say that this set is definitely not for me.
I was neutral on the new mold until I've seen some of these new mold pictures in more detail. Not too excited and in fact, little disappointed.
I in no way wish to disrespect the artists involved in this series... but this series looks REALLY creepy... in fact, I may cry if I accidentally mystery trade these at DLR the next time I'm there... they're hideous children... I hate children vinyls...
I honestly don't see how mickey's nose would have stopped these designs from translating onto the old canvas. But now they just look like action figures with no disney connection. Oh well I guess if they don't impress me when I go to the disney store next time, it will just be one more vinyl series I won't be tempted to buy

Ugly children aside, is this thread the new "New Mold/ Old Mold" thread? And I say that directed at all peoples. This new set is hideous, but not because of it's figure. Please collectors, tell me honestly that you would want exercise girl in your collection, even if it had a nose and buttons
They are simply grodies. And to blame it, or even say the mold plays a part is ludicrous. The POTC ones look awesome, and they're on the new mold. (at least this collector wants them) But these children are not, because the design is toddler-ish. I can see them only being bought for children under the age of 3
Say what you wamt TOT. I love the designs. Call me a wierdo or whatever. But I think the designs are super cute. Like I said before, it must stem for my love of anime.
The reason that I do not like them IS because of the new mold NO other reason.
So you may think this set is hidiuos overall. I think it is hidiuos soley becuase of the new mold. It is relevant to discuss it here.
I never once made a new mold generalization. But I can if you want.....
And yes - honestly I would want the excercise girl in my collection if it wasn't for the new mold. I would have bought a case so I would have had to exercise girls in my collection.
For me it is the mold NOT the design.
Lol, I'm an anime fan too, I still don't like them. I can respect your opinion, it's just hard to come into yet another thread where all I see is the new mold/old mold convo. I'm not looking to change an opinion, I'm simply saying that for me, my displeasure with this series (as many others have pointed out) is that they look weird and creepy. To that reasoning, it's not the mold, and the change in mold didn't affect that aspect. Can we all just talk about the design again? Or has the mold really monopolized every single Vinyl discussion now?
No problems either way. The Mold is as important as the design as far as I am concerned, so it is a relevant discussion. I would buy them on the old mold. I will not buy them on the new mold. How is that not a huge issue?
But I can repsect the integrity of this thread. If no one else wants to talk about how these girls look on the new mold than neither will I
But the thread is titled "General" Discussion
I didn't say the mold doesn't matter. I just feel that this thread is going to soon be monopolized by the arguments. I guess I just figured that since there's a thread for this apparent controversial discussion of the "mold," that it could be contained there. But being the minority, I guess I'll just keep my mouth shut.
I said it before way back when...Disney has a way of ruining things they push so hard to get people to like...with this series I smell the beginning of the end! The designs on these are just lazy they do look like a rip off of anime styled people and many of them have the same face just wearing different clothing, where's the creativity? Sorry if I hurt the artists feelings but actually no I'm not sorry, YOU CAN DO BETTER (and should have done better). These cutesters are definitely NOT like me in the slightest!
I am not defending the new mold b/c frankly I could give a rats [behind] what the mold looks like. All I care about is the design, I could care less if the mold was in the shape of Mickey, Donald Goofy etc. if I like the design then I will buy it.
It is a very weird one sided set... While that would be great with an awesome idea, this one.. Not so much. Out of cutesters too, I dreaded pulling the children... So why would Disney make a set of them? Do you think to offset the pixar cars idea? the opinion is that cars are for boys so is this to give the girls a set?? They should have gone with a princess set if that's the case the design is mcdonalds style, not Disney.
