Crystalux Disney Characters #4: Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid’ & Complete Collection

The Crystalux figure releases by Banpresto continue to amaze and enchant me. Can you believe that I have collected every Disney girl so far?! A few days ago, beautiful Ariel joined my collection as the fourth release of the series after Alice, Snow White and Belle. She is so cute with her floating hair! πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ

Crystalux Disney Characters #3: Belle from ‘The Beauty and the Beast’

Crystalux Belle FigureSo far all of the Crystalux releases by Banpresto have been nothing short of amazing. It all started with Alice, continued with Snow White and now we are already at their third release with Belle, the heroine of ‘The Beauty and the Beast’. Crystalux figures are prizes that can be won at Japanese arcades. Their special feature are the eyes, which are comparable to dolls’ eyechips and therefore reflect light.

For doll collectors ‘eyechips’ are not a new concept at all, but I have to say that I am quite intrigued by the idea of incorporating it into figures, which additionally do not break the bank as well!

Crystalux Alice in WonderlandWhat made me the most excited about the Crystalux releases (the two that have been released/announced so far), is the appearance of the Disney girls and that they are portrayed in their actual movie look. It is super refreshing to have this range of Disney figures next to Chibi versions like Qposket. Alice is captured in the secene at the very beginning of the movie, while she is actually talking to her cat Dinah. Honestly, I need a tiny Dinah to accompany her! Alice is (theoretically) sitting on a meadow and made a wreath out of daisies, which she is still holding in her hands. Continue reading Crystalux Disney Characters #1: Alice in Wonderland
