FYI;

Earlier today I checked the Disneystore website. The giant Tiki Drummer figures have been marked down to $119. With an extra 10% off post-Xmas coupon promotion, and free shipping, I was able to order one for a total cost of $108.

Aaaaaaaargh!

I just saw the cool dress and shirt combo! And the shirts are GONE! Waaaaaah! We are off to D-Land this April for Ms. VanTiki's B-day - perhaps I'll find a shirt tucked behind a rack somewhere....

Ordering the dress now - hope I get the right size...

The Tiki Drummers are GONE, and Disney has shut down their creative collectible
devision. Kevin and Jody were let go. Looks like this is the end of high quality collectibles.

Vantiki,
The shirts have been gone for quite some time now. The purple host shirt went on sale 18 months ago, and the green version went on sale almost a year ago. Since there were only 100 shirts made in each size - 500 total in purple and 500 total in green - the popular sizes like XL were snatched up right away.

These shirts were only available online, and not at the theme parks, so I seriously don't think you'll be able to find one at Disneyland. But not to despair, they're still obtainable. Your best bet to get one of the shirts is to purchase it off of ebay, or buy one at one of the events like Mondo Lounge, Viva Las Vegas, The Hukilau, or Tiki Oasis. Or post a thread in Tiki Marketplace, saying that you want to buy one. Depending on the size you need, I might be able to help - I have an extra shirt in green in XXL, if that is your size. Feel free to PM me if you are interested. If you're getting the green dress for your wife, then I'd recommend the matching green shirt over the purple one. Good luck!

The tiki drummer figures have reappeared. Formerly they were available via the disneystore.com website. There is at least one that has gone up for sale on the Mouse Surplus ebay store, so there is a chance that this store may have obtained all of the remaining drummers.

The ebay price is a bit high - currently at $274, with two and a half days still left. This is a bit higher than the original sale price - disneystore was selling them for $119 less than two months ago.

Mouse Surplus also has up for sale a tiki head sign formerly used at the Polynesian resort. Unfortunately, they do no give the dimensions of the sign.

Interesting. The last two Tiki Drummers that this ebayer sold went for $270 and 250, but did you notice that the one that's currently at $274 has a shipping cost of $68 as well? Ouch!!! The last two tiki head signs that they sold went for $40 and $37. I'm guessing that the tiki head sign isn't very big, because the original list price is $5.

What is the scoop on these well insighted artists? They seemed to be the backbone of some of the best merchandise that came out of Disney in YEARS... now I have heard from a Disneyland worker this past week they are no longer with the company...If its not too much to ask, I'd like to know why? I really hope it was by their own decisions to leave Disney because they want to do their own creative thing. And If they were let go by Disney, well that really sucks for Disney, because these 2 artists/sculpturers & "jacks of all trades" were on the creative ball! I've noticed alot at the park this last visit, that just didn't sit right with me based on their operations. Thats another story though... Kevin and Jody make a great tagteam and I hope they are still working together wherever they are! Also let them know they have fans in their corner, and that they(the other fans), along with myself, hope things are well with them! Godspeed-
-Slick

They are busier than ever, and ironically now that they are freelancers, they get hired by companies that Disney contracts to make collectibles. So now they not only get paid better, but work for people that actually KNOW and APPRECIATE classic Disney attractions, something that was not the case at the company itself.

Why, do you have a problem with Disney product? I cannot imagine a better realization of the Tiki concept than in this recent Roger Rabbit, why, it is Polynesian Style personified!


Roger Rabbit Tiki Pin
$12.95 (Item #96909P)
Roger Rabbit is spotlighted on this thoughtful gold-finished character pin,
one in a series casting Disney's most popular characters as Tiki carvings.
Pin 1 7/8'' H. Enamel cloisonné. Limited Edition of 250.

Hurry, folks, only a 250 piece limited edition!

They pop up on ebay every once in a while. But you might like to know that they have just put out a Tiki Room Box that is amazing!! It was just released last week. If you cant get to disneyland to get one, I think you can call 1-800-delivears to order one. They cost $65 and are limited to 1963 pieces. They rarely put out neat Tiki Room stuff - you should look into it.
