    Yes a costume for the 17" bear.

        aimster ; That train engineer costume is absolutely adorable!

        I also have to admit I do like the homemade outfit for kids. Kinda wish they would make it for adults.

          I went to my Disney Store after work to check, and they did have the engineer costume. It is separate pieces too. I was pleasantly surprised by that. The t-shirt is not attached to the overalls, and the scarf is separate too. It's a step in the right direction. I do wish we could get real buttons though. The pocket watch is sewn onto the overalls as well.

            Did you catch how much the train outfit is? Is it a normal outfit at $20 or one of the new "premium" outfits at $30? Ms. Sakuraskies is asking and super interested.

              Hi Duffeteers! I'm rather new to posting here. I've been lurking around the forums for a while but... Good News! Was just on Disney Store website and... The Mickey Mouse trunk costume is online! Here is the link for anyone interested. Duffy the Disney Bear Mickey Mouse Costume - 17'' | Plush | Disney Store

                It was $22 and considered one of the regular costumes. It's not in a trunk box, but the regular cardboard Duffy hanger.

                  Oops! I'm sorry, I looked at the Canadian price. The US price is $20 just like all the regular costumes.

                    So that would mean the costumes went through a price increase because they were 20 before yes? In any event it looks like a quality costume even though real buttons would be nice. Does it say Disney Store exclusive on it? XD Holding out hope that the associate that day didn't give me a load of crap way back in January. Thank you all for this information. I think this costume will be a must have on everyone's list as the photo opts for it are high.

                      tenchikiss, you must have missed gurgi's added comment that the $22 was CAD. $20 USD.

                      Gurgi, where did you find the information? I cannot find it online. ILG

                        I did. I think I hit reply before they posted. XD Good to know that prices haven't gone up yet. I got the safari outfit the other day at an outlet store and it was 18 whereas all the costumes start at 20 now. You know how Disney wants to get every dollar from us. XD

                        I foresee a lot of Disney train rides in Duffy Lovers future now. XD I can't even remember the last time we rode the train at the Magic Kingdom. Probably in 2010 with my brother.

                          Not to go too off topic...we got on a train that took forever to move. When it did, it literally went 0.5 mph. People were walking faster than we were moving.

                            I have been looking but the engineer outfit has not been on line yet. I found it in Chicago. When the weather gets nice I want to take him on the train with me and have his picture taken with one of the conductor's. I will need to find the right conductor who will do it though, some of them are crabby old guys and some are pretty nice.

                                Definitely a cute concept, and a fresh one. It's still a bit "costumey," but very much workonly reason I wouldn't have it is because of my existing outfit. I really don't like embroidered faux elements, but embroidered accessories is a step beyond that I almost find cringeworthy.

                                The OLC utilizes faux pockets (and real pockets), but that's as far as it goes (although these bother me, too). I see the rationale for faux buttons as safe yet decorative on the Disney releases, though I'm very thankful not to have that limitation here. When it comes all the way to stitching on two-dimensional accessories, though, I think that's a design flaw. Just leave it out or make it a simple 3D accessory that parents can choose to give to their kids or not.

                                Taken altogether, though, this is not a bad direction for Disney. It definitely makes Duffy feel more like Duffy and less like the Disney Bear, but the $20 price for the level of detail still seems a little high to many consumers, I imagine, especially with BAB's quality standards and pricing structure, and now with Duffy completely lacking any

                                  Oh, the info I got off of the costume itself. I bought one for my Duffy. The tags do say Disney Store on them, and have both the US and London Disney Store headquarters, so I'm guessing these will also be sold in the UK stores?

                                  Here are a few photos of my Duffy wearing it. I do agree with what DuffyDaisuki said about it, and despite the embroidered watch, I do think this is a step in the right direction for the US costumes.





                                  Oh, and I should have taken pictures of the back. In another good step for Disney, the front pocket on the overalls is an actual pocket, and the two back pockets are functional as well. And...there's a blue Mickey mark on his back left pocket, like the TDS costumes have. The shoes he's wearing are not part of the costume, they are from the Halloween Dream costume set from TDS, and also, since I don't have any trains for him to model with, I had to improvise with a streetcar toy...

                                    So, I phoned the closest Disney store...no engineer outfits.
                                    She said they get shipments on Mondays. Maybe next week. :beg:

                                    I also phoned the outlet. They don't have Duffy at all. She said that maybe the outlets aren't getting the Duffy products at all.

                                      I think it makes sense for the outlets to not have duffy merchandise, at least here outlet malls are seen as more "discount" places for extra/older merchandise. I was looking at the Duffy section in my Disney store but a sales representative told me that they havent been selling at all. I guess without all the stories and exposure to the parks Duffy has a first appearance of a regular, expensive little bear.

                                      That engineer outfit is so cute though! Great way to appeal to boys, plus good boy clothes are so hard to find.. Definitely a step in the right direction in my book :thumbup:

                                          I just called the Avenues Mall and the Florida Mall. No train outfit there either.
