    Yeah, it's the regular sized bear with a special costume (and a smiling face). It is a good deal if you think about it, because the regular "naked" version is 3800 yen already...so you're paying an extra 1000 for a pretty good costume that would probably be sold for almost the price of the bear itself.

    They are actual necklaces. It seems to be a Duffy merchandise trend. New ones for each season. Halloween had a "candy" shaped one too.

    Speaking of trends, this also seems to be a new one. It's identical to the Halloween version released last month (except with Christmas colors)...and the same size too. They list it in Centimeters. It's small in person though, maybe the size of a small handbag. It's not an "over-the-shoulder" size at all. It's something more like a purse.

    I like that they are putting the Duffy logo on his feet again. The only thing about the Duffy shoes, is that they really aren't meant for anything but display. The Build-a-Bear ones are meant to be played with and used outside...or whatever you decide. Duffy's are more cute. Build-a-Bear's are pretty much like real baby shoes.

      Thank you gurgi. That is a good deal on a Duffy and an outfit.

      You are right that the build a bear shoes are more for outside and are like baby shoes. :-) I just love the duffy shoes, they are so cute.

      Interesting about the trends of bags and necklaces. Both are very cute. I would have hoped for an over the shoulder bag, but that may not be the trend in Japan.

      Thanks for the info. :-)

        I'm not too sure if the smiling Duffy is the same size or not. I checked the links & the smiling one in the Santa outfit says it's 32 cm, but when I checked the size of the regular duffy- it had 2 sizes listed 30cm and 42 cm- I assume the 30cm is sitting and the 42cm is standing, I could be wrong since I can't read anything else but that.

        So, I believe the smiling Duffy in the Christmas outfit may be slightly smaller than the original. I remember in the past there were a few different sizes available, but I never really followed Duffy much back then.

        Where's DuffyDad when you need him??

          Well, the description for the holiday bear says 32 CM sitting. So, it's fairly close to the regular one that says 30 CM sitting (maybe the 2 extra is for the hat or something, LOL). I know that DuffyDad has the holiday one from last year, and it's pretty much the same size, because all the costumes fit.

          I do know that there is a very expensive, very limited Duffy that they release each year that is NOT this one. That one is in a special wooden box, and is smaller and made of different fabric...and also it's jointed at the arms & legs. They have been released in different colors too. So far the only one I've seen is a blue one from last year celebrating the 25th. But it's also hundreds of dollars...so, yeah...not getting that one!

I think this holiday season I'll be lucky to take what I can get.
            This describes exactly how I felt. I didn't really want another bear, but he is in his Candelight Reflections costume, and I didn't start getting any of the separate Duffy costumes until this Halloween (since I got the mini Duffy counterparts). Indeed, I wonder how quick this stuff will sell out. I'm sure the Halloween costumes and the Cape Cod Seasons black cat already sold out, but I wouldn't know.

            I'll echo a statement that you made in another post. I wish they, too, would have offered the Candlelight Reflections costume separately, but I guess there's nothing that can be done since I missed out on the older 5th Anniversary version.

But it is nice & I'll probably wind up getting it since I have nothing to dress him in for Christmas & it's a lot nicer than any of the build a bear stuff.
            I about fell off my chair laughing when I read that because there's sooooo much truth in what you wrote.

            The TDR website says that the Christmas Fantasy and Harborside Christmas good and special menu souvenir plates and pudding cups will go on sale from November 4th. However, the Duffy goods will go on sale from November 9th. I remember that the Duffy goods went on sale a little later for Halloween, too.

            I'm wondering if the very expensive and limited Duffy was a mohair. It wouldn't be a far stretch for TDS to make them because TDS made a Harborside Christmas 2005 Mickey and Minnie set in a red velvet box.

              This topic has grown a lot bigger than I expected XXD Not that it's a bad thing--I really appreciate it.

              Anyway, Which is the Candlelight Outfit? @[email protected] I feel bad that I can't seem to figure out which it is...

              Edit: And exactly how much would you guys say each costume is worth? I just noticed one costume pop up on Ebay and they're asking 240 dollars... o-o

                Does anyone know if these are the only two Christmas outfits they will offer for Duffy? I ask because for Halloween, they had two outfits and then they brought out a third one. Sometimes there is a trend to what they do. Im not even sure if they offer a new outfit each month or not.

                  It's true! I could buy myself an outfit too for the price of one for Duffy...

                  It might be...I'm not sure, but the pictures I saw on a Yahoo auction make it look kind of course like Mohair...so maybe.

                  The Candlelight Reflections outfit is the one that looks like a Santa suit. It's this one:

                  Well, there will be another costume released on November 27th as part of the Cape Cod Seasons line. That's what happened with Halloween too. The Black Cat costume was part of that series...and it turned out to be another costume. So, I'm curious what they will do for the next one, since they seem to have the winter outfit covered. There will also be another Cape Cod Seasons costume on December 28th...so heaven only knows what they have planned.

                    The Candlelight Duffy is the one picture of the smiling Duffy with the one that looks like a Santa suit with the gold trim on the front.

                    If you were wondering, Wondering- you would be surprised at just how far topics or threads go around here- Just take cover once any debates or disagreements start- it can get pretty ugly.

                    Don't be surprised either if your topic starts out with the lists of Duffy outfits and gets on a tangent and become something else entirely.

                    Janell, you never know with Duffy- I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few more Christmas outfits coming- they sometimes don't announce them initially, but it does seem like there are new outfits each month or season.

                    And yes, just to get the hatter going again- buying all these outfits for Duffy can cost much more than your own wardrobe.


                    I guess I was writing as Gurgi was posting- so now I have all old news.

                          Hey, guys. Sorry I missed this for so long. Life's been busy.

                          It is a really good price, as this is the most special (and most fully clothed^^) Christmas edition Duffy so far!^^ The Christmas version is actually just slightly larger than the normal edition, but still wears all outfits with ease. Mine is the 25th Anniversary Christmas version from last year.

                          Unlike the rest of the year's jewelry offerings, the Christmas necklace is real silver (they had one last year, too); that's why the higher price. I can't really see the details on that photo, either, Janell. I'll try to get a better shot of it when I go, but we all know Ichigo's camera is MUCH better than mine!

                          I'll just add to Gurgi's answer. The bag is 22x28x18cm, according to Duffy's official site.

                          As far as shoes, I vastly prefer Build-A-Bear shoes because their sturdiness makes posed photos much easier, but I agree with Gurgi - the details have improved the past two months. The ones for the Cat costume, though I added some details of my own, were really inspired!

                          Again, the Christmas version is slightly larger - 43cm standing. Sorry, Jedimaster. I was busy with work and life and getting Duffy's armature installed. Photos coming soon!^^

                          That's the "Collection Doll" version. Last year's was blue (and is the "2009" version - they release in December for the following year), 2008 was pink, and 2007 dark brown. They are jointed, so they move for sure at the shoulders, neck, and hips. Not sure about elbow or knee articulation, though. Personally, I don't like their fur as much as the standard Duffy, so I prefer the Christmas version to them. They're ¥10~14,000. Pretty pricey, but they come with a cushioned, lined wooden collector's display box, so it's actually pretty high value, too.

                          Not sure if that's mohair on the Collection Doll, but possibly. I've never seen one in person, but I don't like how "seamy" they look. One of my favorite things about Duffy is that he has no visible seams. This belies careful design, in my eyes. I can see how another aesthetic could argue that the seams have a classic, handmade charm...but I do not share this sentiment.^^

                          It woulda been nice to buy the Candlelight outfit separate, but...meh. It's SO much better than the 5th Anniversary version - more sparkle, more details, and PANTS! I'd rather have pants than a Duffy logo Santa sack any day. Also, it looks to have a more satin finish, whereas the old one looks more like velvet to me. Haven't seen either in person yet, though; this is just from photos.^^

                          I really hope the 11/27 costume isn't Christmas-related. I think two is enough for Christmas. For Halloween it made sense, since it's a costume holiday, but I'd like to see something just purely winter for the Seasons line. I'm really hopeful that the 12/28 one will be a New Year's hakama! I would :love: that!!!

                            Thanks for all the information on the Duffy Collection Doll. I didn't even know about them until gurgi mentioned them. To me, it's hard to tell if they are mohair. The Mickey and Minnie Harborside Christmas 2005 set had a card in it stating that it was made with mohair. Otherwise, I would have never known. After seeing pictures of the Duffy Collection Doll, I definitely prefer the standard Duffy, too

                            I couldn't agree more, but I wouldn't be surprised if the costume for 11/27 will be Christmas related since the 11/9 costume set has more of a winter feel to it. I guess we'll just have to wait a little while longer until Duffy's website is updated As for the 12/28 costume, I had a suspicion that it would have a New Year's theme because of the release date. Regardless, I'm sure that costume will sell out quickly (as if Duffy doesn't always sell out quickly, though).

Last year's was blue (and is the "2009" version - they release in December for the following year), 2008 was pink, and 2007 dark brown. They are jointed, so they move for sure at the shoulders, neck, and hips. Not sure about elbow or knee articulation, though. Personally, I don't like their fur as much as the standard Duffy, so I prefer the Christmas version to them. They're ¥10~14,000. Pretty pricey, but they come with a cushioned, lined wooden collector's display box, so it's actually pretty high value, too.

                              It woulda been nice to buy the Candlelight outfit separate, but...meh. It's SO much better than the 5th Anniversary version - more sparkle, more details, and PANTS! I'd rather have pants than a Duffy logo Santa sack any day. Also, it looks to have a more satin finish, whereas the old one looks more like velvet to me. Haven't seen either in person yet, though; this is just from photos.^^
                              Hi! Nice to meet you XD Your avatar is awesome~

                              Thanks for the information ^___^ ...of course, now I want the pink one. T___T Though, I'll probably be able to pass if our hunts through the attic and basement goes well...

                              The Candlelight outfit is the new Christmas one? Or is it another one? T~T *fails*

                              In a happy note, I'm going to Japan in December, so maybe I'll be able to stop by Tokyo DisneySea and get a few things <3

                              Edit: And quick bonus question--exactly what month and year were the bears originally out in Disney World/Land? And what month and year were the bears removed?

Mine is the 25th Anniversary Christmas version from last year.
                                Oh, so he is just a bit bigger, thanks for that detail!

                                So...how big are these "collection dolls"? I've never actually seen them next to anything for a size comparison. I've always assumed they were a lot smaller than the standard Duffy, but I really don't have a clue.

One of my favorite things about Duffy is that he has no visible seams. This belies careful design, in my eyes. I can see how another aesthetic could argue that the seams have a classic, handmade charm...but I do not share this sentiment.^^
                                I agree with you too. The visible seams aren't a plus, in my opinion. I guess it's a matter of taste. I also don't quite like how his face looks...it's not quite Duffy, if you ask me.

                                I am surprised that they are basically selling a full costume with the limited edition bear...the one plus side to Candlelight Reflections leaving, I guess. It really is quite a deal considering what you get. I can't wait to see the detail in the costume myself.

I would :love: that!!!
                                Yeah, me too! The thing about Halloween is that you could really make any costume, and they did. So having 3 different ones was not a stretch. With Christmas, just how many sweater/jacket outfits do you need? So, yeah, I also hope it's not Christmas themed, but generic winter, or something else. The 12/28 one would be great if it was New Year's themed! A countdown costume would be really awesome! Maybe a Duffy tuxedo, LOL!

I can't really see the details on that photo, either, Janell. I'll try to get a better shot of it when I go, but we all know Ichigo's camera is MUCH better than mine!

                                  As far as shoes, I vastly prefer Build-A-Bear shoes because their sturdiness makes posed photos much easier, but I agree with Gurgi - the details have improved the past two months. The ones for the Cat costume, though I added some details of my own, were really inspired!

                                  Thanks, I loved to see detail of the necklace. I love the detail of the items TDR puts out.

                                  I get what you guys are saying. If you pose Duffy, the sturdiness is very much needed.

                                  Im with you, I hope they do a non-holiday outfit for 11/27. Maybe some winter outfit, a cute soft sweater or something with a warm over coat. I think it gets cold in Tokyo(well Im from California, anything under 60f is cold lol) An outfit that had an over coat, plus a cute outfit underneath would be nice. I love layering. Oh my gosh they need a TDS hoodie sweat shirt. Like Duffys day in the park. Can't you see him with a balloon? lol And a pop corn bucket. I love those things, I really love the collapsable bucket. But that maybe hard in such a small side. A little DTS map and camera. Oh gosh I could go wild with all this. lol

                                  I can totally see a New Years outfit for him too. A noise maker, party hat, some cute clothes. I wonder who the Japanese celebrate New Years, do they have noise makers? My family is always at DLR, so its all about the party hats and noise makers DLR gives out(free, yes something free from Disney lol)

                                    Everything TDR does, from shows, to parades, to decorations, to merchandise is done with class & finesse. I love looking forward to just what they will do next.

                                    I'm from NY, but I love the cold- the 60's for me are still a bit warm- I love it being in the 40's & 50's. I'm not a person who does layers at all. I'll wear a t- shirt and shorts all year long if possible. I think California has great weather when compared to NY- it's not as humid out there.

                                    Anyway, back to Duffy- This years costume is pretty nice, I like the snowduffy on the shoulders- I'm not too crazy about the hat- but I'm looking forward to the Candlelight outfit. I wish they actually did sell it separately since I really didn't want to have to buy another Duffy- but it is the smiling version, so I guess I need him as well.

                                      You sound like my husband, hes Canadian and wares shorts and a t-shirt when its snowing. Im all bundled up in a big coat. Makes for a funny photo. lol

                                      I agree, I like the snow Duffy on the shoulder. Such a cute detail. I love that sweater. The hat, Im not sure about yet. What I love are the shoes. Yeah, Im such a girl who loves shoes. lol The over all are cute too. They did a great job on this one. I would hope it is soft like the cat costume. I can't believe how soft that one is. The quaintly I can't say enough good things about what they put out.

                                        Edit: And quick bonus question--exactly what month and year were the bears originally out in Disney World/Land? And what month and year were the bears removed?
                                        When are you coming? Last year all of the special smiling Christmas Duffys were sold out by the first or second week of December. I know cos my friend didn't get one.:shy: I imagine this year's to be even more popular, actually.

                                        Candlelight Reflections is the one that includes the bear for ¥4800. The ¥3500 Christmas Sweater set is just a sweater set, but the brown boots are cute.

                                        I'm curious about your first bonus question, too. I believe it was sometime in 2003, and at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. Someone more knowledgeable than me care to shine a light? As for the second query, as far as I know they still sell "the Disney Bear" in the US, but the construction is totally different now. A friend of mine also confirmed that the design for the Japanese Duffy bear was tweaked even from the original (imo) better quality "Disney bears." The US bears are not and have never been Duffy. I'm still curious who exactly owns the "Duffy" name, though, Disney or OLC? I guess Disney, cos nothing on Duffy's goods says OLC... But the name, the artwork, the costumes - all that is Duffy - is designed here in Japan; it only gets "approved" by Disney Parks in the US. He is a Japanese character with significant roots in an American design concept. (There are new folks who haven't heard that rant.^^) Although Duffy is a great symbol of the US-Japan Disney bridge (and how Japan does it better - sorry, couldn't resist!^^), since all design/marketing/planning for him is done in-house at OLC, my chances of ever getting on that team are practically nonexistent.^^

                                        I've never seen one, either, but I imagine they are around 43cm. I don't think Japanese fans would be impressed by an expensive, limited edition Duffy that couldn't wear the outfits. I know I wouldn't.^^ I'm so lucky! Thanks in part to you, Gurgi, I now have a FULLY poseable Duffy that looks just like Duffy should!:ghug: Yes, pics are coming...sick and working like a dog! Gotta make that money for Mickey!

                                        I was surprised by the fantastic pricing on this, too! I imagine a lot of folks will be, and I imagine they'll be gone FAST! I wonder if they took collectors into account, too, and the fact that they are kind of re-releasing a retired costume for the first time...I wonder if they produced as many this year as last year. I guess they made more, though, honestly. This has been an INCREDIBLE year for Duffy.

                                        Yeah, I hear you, but I'm afraid it might actually be Christmas again. I took another look at the official site, and I'd forgotten that sleigh icon next to the 12/28 release date...hm... And I just realized, even if they did a New Year's costume, you "tuxedo fans" are right...it almost definitely would not be Japanese-themed as part of the Cape Cod Seasons line. Bummed now.^^

This photo is from the day Ichigo and I went to the Funderful Disney Party at Broadway Theater (front row^^), which also just "happened" to be her birthday! Duffy was so excited to show her some love!)


                                        And this one's just in the spirit of Ichigo!^^

                                        New Year's Day is the biggest holiday of the year in Japan. It's celebrated by going to shrine and/or temple, ringing bells, making wishes, reading fortunes, cleaning house, purifying your spirit, buying protective charms and talismans, settling old debts, letting go of the past, and looking forward to a bright and shining future. It is a day to be with family, feast on good food, and enjoy the natural beauty of the first sunrise of the year with the ones you :love:. Sadly, if they do make a New Year's costume, I'm sure it'll be western style. That could be fun, too, but the Japanese New Year is so beautiful! I just thought of how much I would :love: a mini Duffy omikuji (fortune telling stick can) accessory with a Japanese costume! I wanna be on the Duffy marketing team!)

                                        *sigh* You know, I really hate to, but I just have to...I told you to hold off on buying your Duffy til Christmas, but did you listen to me? Noooo, you didn't... At least now you know that I am always right.

                                        I don't love the hat, either, but I want something with the Snowman Duffy and I think the boots are super cute. The detailing, too, is wonderful, as expected. The whole set, though, is a little more "cutesy" than my style, but I'm still happy about it.

                                        I'm glad you're coming back! We're gonna have such a great time doing Candlelight Reflections next Saturday! And that'll be your last night at the Resort, right? What a beautiful send-off!!!^^
