i have a sour opinion of what disney will release, even when great guys like k and j are involved. somehow, i thought this would turn into a 're-invisioned' version of the drummer by management or perhaps a smaller, keepsake type of thing.



Originally, they were gonna force K & J to sculpt a 3/4 size - thankfully, they agreed to let them pull a casting off the original mold. I have to stress again, that these are castings off the ORIGINAL MOLD - which is one degree removed from Rolly Crump's original sculpture! In other words, this is as close as you can get to a real one - all the details will be exact... I'm very excited!

What I meant to say is that if it wasn't for Kevin and Jody, Disneyland's 50th would have completely sucked!!! I liked SHAG's stuff too. And my home Tiki Room would ALSO suck big time. Disney Shopping should not be allowed to release non-Kevin and Jody collectibles....EVER.
I feel better now,
Louis

I'm sorry, but was the date set for the sale of the drummers and I over read it, because I did not see any date when they will go on sale. ?
Thanks

Thanks Atomobile for starting that other thread and Tangaroa for the photos! I'd better go get the bowdown guys again:

tangaroa

I haven't been here in a couple of weeks and the tiki enabling starts the moment I return.

Love the Crocodile Drummers and the fact that they light up!!! You could probably change the color of the bulb to suit the needs of your room too...

Maybe someone with an aluminum Christmas tree has a miniature color wheel that could be put into one? If not, there are color changing LED bulbs that could be used;
some are automatic, some remote controllable.

You can also make anything dimmable without doing any electrical work. IKEA makes a dimmer switch that you simply plug your item into, and then you plug that into the wall.

I use one on one of my display cases that has halogens, they are too bright when the room goes into to movie theater mode (which seems all too often with near record breaking winter NW rain), but yet I still want *some* light on my tiki mugs. That reminds me, I did see a big tiki in the aquarium scene in the movie Closer a couple of weeks ago.



Back to my point: this may not be necessary for the drummers, but it might be something someone might want for something one day...and then you'll be glad you read this!

Oh, i wanted to add that Tangaroa looks like he's been separated at birth from HUNTER (from the show SURVIVOR).

That moai in the aquarium is almost certainly from the London Aquarium.

That's actually the very dashing Kevin Kidney in the photo on the left, not Tangaroa.

Oh! Thanks humuhumu. Well, then i don't know what Tangaroa looks like or who his celebrity twin might be.

Also, that's just a crappy photo that i took with my camera of the tiki on the tv screen but if you want to use it go ahead...

I am not Kevin and he is not me! I am the poster of this thread - Kevin & Jody get all the credit for bringing these awesome products to life....

wow- I am really stoked on all these new items. I will be buying a pair of those drummers for sure.

I have a question about the shirts- how do the sizes run? Say, if i wear a XL tshirt, will the XL shirt be about right, or are they on the big side? What is the material they are printed on?

I think its cool that there's green ones now..

I used to have an original purple one in a little kid's size, but I sold it at the Dionysus Derby way back in the day. Now that I have a 2 year old, i kick myself. I also passed on buying Shag's "Presentation of the Swizzle Stick" for $500 that night.. what drug was I on? It ended up in the "Collection of Ben Stiller"
