I was not real excited years back upon hearing rumors concerning Disney opening a tiki bar(ho-hum). I have been a fan since my 1rst visit just after their 1rst day in business. Felt that way when I saw pix of the zombie mug. It looked okay but not as cool as the previous mugs from T S's, particularly the barrel (shipwreck) mug. Got one in my hand last Sat. nite and I knew it was going home with me and would look good in the Happy Talk Lounge ( my home bar). Imho, it's a good looking mug. Btw, the zombie mugs I snagged were all very different variations of the color green-one was almost blue
Cheers

Trader Sam's is currently out of the new Zombie mug, but I was informed that it is not a limited addition and that they will be getting more in stock. So... as for collector value... bummer. As for Tiki Farm I'm happy for their good fortune.

Although i don't have one myself, going by the pictures i've seen i think they look fantastic.
In general i'm not a fan of the finish on the majority of Tiki Farm mugs (sorry Holden). The design can look great but when it is finally released the glaze to me is always a big let down. I understand that the mugs are mass-produced but so are the Trader Sams mugs. Maybe this is a case of a company (Disney) with a large amount of $$$ behind them who expect a high standard of finish and will not skimp on quality.

Damn!.. I was planning all week to go tomorrow night to get my mug.. Figured they'd have a lot just like the barrels.. The barrels to my knowledge never sold out.. Thanks for posting the bad news though..

Me too... I've been planning on going this Sunday. Thanks for saving me the gas... I'm not saying Trader Sam's is not worth the trip, but I'm in San Diego, so I need something "extra" to motivate me...

Is it just me or are others not too impressed by this mug? Sorry to be a downer, just sayin'



I'm on the fence about it,
not amazing, not horrible.
No room for more mugs, not a lot of money.
probably won't buy one.

Hello!
After reading all these posts, I had to mention something that I'm amazed no one is talking about. In fact some messages here lament that the mug doesn't have a logo or anything that connects it with Disney.
Please take a good look of the mug. Now find pictures of the Hatbox Ghost, or the tall Hitchhiking Ghost in the Haunted Mansion... Self-explanatory. Any questions?

Hi Lewis. I wasn't lamenting that the mug doesn't have a Disney logo, I was really just surprised that it didn't have some sort of visible Disney marking. We all know how extremely marketing-oriented the Company is... It's probably on the bottom of the mug, though, at least in the form of a (c)opyright would be my guess.

GREAT observation to tie the mug into the Hatbox Ghost -- he is truly one of the most scary and macabre things ever created by Disney... I hope he comes back to HM someday.

Totally! Hatbox ghost was my first thought when I saw the mug. Hope they have them when we visit in January! I'll be buying any ceramic item I can lay my hands on in the bar

I just got mine shipped to NY (an amazing feat considering the conditions out here) and I noticed on the underside that it said "1st Edition". While they may be producing and large quantity of these, that fact made me feel a bit better about its collector value. Doesn't matter any how...the mug is cool as heck and won't be leaving my collection.

Cheers,

Bob

Has anyone heard if the mugs are back in stock??

I know I should try and get over there anyway, but if they are available that would add a little more motivation.

That is good to hear. I was advised via Instagram they would not have any until December.
