  • Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

    How awesome is this??

    Gurgi suspected that the new SV13 Tote Shellie ¥3200 (24x32x12cm) looked to have the same dimensions as last year's SV12 Tote Duffy ¥2900 (24x31x15cm). Turns out to be true! This year's is just a centimeter taller and a few centimeters more narrow. I'm guessing the ¥300 price difference is due less to inflation and more to the fact that it seems to use a straw-like texture.

    I just thought this might be great news to folks (like me) who were thinking that the new big blue tote kinda made the smaller one from last year feel obsolete. Looking at it now, I'm really happy I got last year's because these two will display great together! I doubt the size difference will be very noticeable at all in a display, and not only will they compliment each other; they'll also serve to represent the 2-year (so far?) span of Spring Voyage. I actually totally :love: this now, and I'm wondering if that's the whole design intention. I s'pose we'll never really know.

    Anywhoo...this made me feel MUCH better about getting Shellie's 2013 Tote to match last year's Duffy version. And I still want the new big one for real, practical use. It's win-win-win! Thanks, Gurgi!:love:

    For folks who didn't get last year's, this year's staggered design is also nice, as the bigger blue tote will contrast well with the smaller light one.

    And for folks who got Shellie's vanity bag last year, I think the new tote might have an equally appealing staggered relationship to that one, since it's roughly the same size as the blue one from last year, which was designed to have that dynamic...

    This means, we have lots of options for SV luggage-themed displays:

    • Equal-sized 2012 Duffy and 2013 Shellie Totes
    • Staggered 2013 Duffy and 2013 Shellie Totes
    • Staggered Shellie-centric 2013 Shellie Tote and 2012 Shellie Vanity
    • Staggered Duffy-centric 2013 Duffy Tote and 2012 Duffy Tote
    • Staggered 2012 Duffy Tote and Shellie Vanity, too, of course!^^
    • Multi-level displays using all four, with three levels: 1 Large, 2 Medium, 1 Small


    I'm really excited about this discovery!:yea:

      Am I right in understanding that the MEMO trunk is tiny? It looks big in the pictures, but the dimensions make it ~3" x 4" x 1.5"

      • Re: Spring Voyage 2013!!!^^

        That looks right to me, ILG. It should be around the size of a 1.5" stack of 3x5 notecards, with a bit of length cut off. It's about 1"x1.75" smaller area and >.5" thicker compared with the Sticker Trunk. I hope it doesn't look too small with the 17" plush; the Memo Trunk's design is more compelling to me as an actual trunk than the Sticker Trunk. The best one, though, is the compact Camera Trunk, but I'm afraid it'll be too big. I'll call for measurements if the update still doesn't come tomorrow.^^

          I have a few questions:

          1.) I saw the "Duffy Scope" last year and I was wondering if they are binoculars...? I wouldn't have any use for it, but it's been picking my brain!

          2.) Are they offering the "17 in Duffy size" duffle this year? I know about the small badge-sized one (which is super cute!)

          3.) I swear I've read this somewhere here, but I couldn't find it! For those who purchased the small smiling Duffy's last year, are the clothes removable or do you have to cut them off and sew it back?

          Also, very excited to see possible jewelry and hair accessories!

            Hey, LilTeacup! The scope is just a monocular with the one lens. I'm not sure how powerful the magnification is, but I can't imagine it's too much. Probably like opera glasses...except just the one lens.

            They aren't offering a 17" duffel this year. The only option is that small badge-sized one. You can use the other square totes to carry Duffy or ShellieMay in, but I guess they are making the duffel design into other things, like the rice-cracker box, camera case, and other things.

            The smiling bears' clothes can be clipped off. They are sewn onto the bears at several key spots, but the threads can be snipped pretty easily. The harder parts will be the hat or bow, but those can be removed with not too much effort as well. Be lucky they aren't like the Candlelight Reflections smiling Duffy from 2009, he had a hat, shirt, pants, & shoes to clip off! I still was able to do that relatively easily though, so the smiling bears should be much easier than he was.

              Thanks for the helpful (and quick!) response, Gurgi!

              I did notice that they incorporated the duffel design into quite a few of the items this year, and maybe it's a good thing they aren't including the regular-sized one to save me money! :lol:

                I was browsing Ebay and found somebody selling the new SV13 costumes. The thing is, their pictures look like the ones from the official site. These aren't from any of the magazines. They have detail. I immediately checked the official site to see if it maybe got updated, but no. Anyway, these pictures show the close-up details on the costumes.

                Duffy's:


                We can see the stitching on his shorts, it's yellow/gold to match the yellow details. Not much else about his that is a revelation. The hat looks the same as last year's, and the embroidered D on the sweater does too. But, we get a better look at it.

                ShellieMay's:



                Now hers we get more details! The pink shells on her shoulders are back. I think some were worried they weren't on this version, but they're there. Also, the flowers have beads as the stamens, so they "pop out". We can also see the flower print on her blouse much better.

                  First off, I'll admit that the yellow has grown on me!:blush:

                  Secondly, this is very strange. Could you post a link to this auction, please? I did Google image searches for both of these, hoping to find another press release or something, and came up with nada. It begs the question, how in the world did this eBay seller get access to these images??

                  And oh! I don't have to take out the yellow! I just need a chocolate brown button-down shirt to wear under the sweater!:yea:

                      Thanks!:thumbup: That's more expensive than the Post, even if you only ordered the one item! I really thought Duffy Post was starting to drive eBay prices down, but maybe not.

                      The Post is always probly gonna be significantly cheaper for WLers who get a lot, but sometimes works out near even with eBay for people who only get one thing. ...Though I like to think the Duffy Post experience, supporting the source of so much Cape Cod Duffy information in English, and my superior selective tastes give it the edge anyway.

                      I still wanna know how this person got these images. All the items aren't even Disney. Who is this and who does s/he know!?!?:lol:

                        Duffy Post wins, paws down. Items are selected with love. The ebay experience doesn't get you that, or even cool picture experiences of the smiling Duffy during his TDS adventures.

                            I've ordered from that ebay seller before. Shipping is lightning fast. I've always presumed its a CM or something because of how fast they ship, within days of the release. I've always been very pleased with my orders. But now that I've discovered DuffyD, I'll be ordering from this post.

                              I saw that that eBay seller is selling 38" (96 cm) ShellieMay for $1,000. I just looked on the TDS website, and the Large Shellie is $542 and change.

                              Duffy Post is the way to go for (at least!) three reasons:
                              1. you know the items are authentic (not to mention chosen with a keen eye and love)
                              2. you pay a fair price
                              3. you get to interact with DuffyD...by far the best feature :thumbup:

                                  Unless my math is way off, that ebay seller (from whom I've purchased before, as I said earlier) is selling the SV13 Duffy Costume for $78. At 3900 yen, with the current conversion rate at 21.53 yen to $1, that means 3900 x .02153 is $83.97, so his price seems fair.

                                  So, folks, is my math off?

                                  Having said all that, we can get a whole lot more items thru our DuffyD, for which I am really grateful!

                                    TNutter,
                                    per Google money conversion, 3,900 yen equals $42.33.
                                    Of course, there is $12.70 in gratuity (making it $55.03) and then shipping (and some portion of the service fee). So, all in all, it is likely to be ~$60.
                                    Still a lot better than $78.

                                        Count me as another vote for Duffy Post. Ebay might be quick, and relatively easy, but it's just not the same. You won't get the special, thoughtful selection of your items. And, it's kind of fun to be in one big group, and we're all anticipating our stuff at the same time. It gives it a much nicer energy as opposed to just picking it off ebay.

                                          Off topic here, but I have a baseball outfit for The Duffster. I remember seeing a post with a picture of him in Paris with a similar baseball outfit on.
                                          The tag inside the shirt says Disneyland Paris. I got it from eBay.
                                          The concern with eBay is that you may get counterfeits.
