        Cute and no doubt will be a hit with the Duffy crowd.

          Not sure, but Shellie May wasnt a hit! They just want to create something new to boost sales.

            She wasn't at first, but the Japanese eventually warmed up to her. Looks like Gelatino might be in the same boat as from what I've been seeing, the Japanese audience is split on him right now. Some love him already and others are unsure of him yet.

              I am getting the same response from my Japanese friends here. Some of them are very excited for it, while others are thinking "Why?". I guess time will tell. But I am sure for the first bit the merchandise will be sold out. I might just have to go try and get something, or at least look.

                I have no idea why or how anyone would perceive ShellieMay as anything other than instant success. She is very nearly as ubiquitous as Duffy, and was popular immediately. The only time I've waited in line for seven hours to buy Duffy merchandise, it was for ShellieMay's debut. Fans, including me, were skeptical about the idea of introducing a new character, but it was love and financial success for OLC at first sight. There was nothing gradual about her acceptance; she was an immediate hit.

                Gelatoni, on the other hand, seems very divisive still. There's still even the potential for "failed experiment," but I think enough folks like him that "flop" is unlikely. Although unless the "Coming Soon!" announcement is truly phenomenal, I think he's very unlikely to reach Shellie status.

                    Thanks for posting this, Jord. Unfortunately, it has added nothing to my excitement.

                    I "like" the new character and love the design, but I want them to make me love the character, too. There's just no substance yet.

                      I think Gelatoni is cute, but I wonder how much the Disney company is involved when an exclusive park character is introduced? I understand attraction characters are designed by Disney (Chandu from Arabian Coast, Shiriki Utundu from Tower of Terror, and Albert the monkey from Mystic Point HKD) but what about Shellie May, Tippy Blue, and Gelatoni? Is OLC the creators and do they do a marketing study or survey as to what type of character would be popular with Japanese audiences? Enough questions. Time for tea.

                        I agree. His design is awesome but we don't know anything about him besides that he's a cat who likes to paint. Instead of the promo posted they should have filmed a promo in which we actually see that it was Gelatino painting those decorations. It would have been simple to add a snippet of Gelatino finishing his work, then noticing that somebody watches him and run away in shyness.

                        Not only do you actually see him this way but it also gives him character. The shy artist who is actually pretty good has been done a lot before in fiction but that's because it still works.

                          The name is Gelatoni. Jord, you aren't the only one who's made that mistake so don't feel bad!

                              "Coming Soon!" has been updated. It's not really new; it just presents the gondola area painting installations again.
