Where are you guys getting the storefront business from? Also, no tie-ins to mugs here, so I'd maybe keep the two on separate subjects. Sam's mugs will remain at Sam's.

And if you start a new thread, please also remember to slug the thread title with "Anaheim" for future when we will have two Trader Sam's locations.

Storefront is just being used as what they theme it as, since it is supposed to be a trading post as the hub.

New mug released (08/25)
Second Edition of the Krakatoa Mug



Same sculpt as the previous Krakatoa, with a new glaze, just like they did with the barrel mug a while back. One difference, however, is that they're actually acknowledging this as a 2nd edition as seen on the bottom of the mug, unlike the barrel that still says 1st edition. This glaze is much better if you ask me, really shows off the detail in the sculpt much better than the previous glaze. These are going fast and from what I've been told will be sold out by tomorrow. Hopefully they can get more stock relatively quickly but who knows. Sometimes new Sam's mugs sell out and aren't seen again for quite a while.

I'm surprised that it is the same design but they took the time to actually change out the copy on the bottom. You would think something like that would not be easy to change out.

It's actually quite simple when you know what you're doing wizzard419. When you make mugs in runs of hundreds, or thousands, a master is made called a 'block and case' which effectively allows you to make as many molds as you like without loss of detail. All they have to do is modify the base part of the mold and make more of them, not the entire thing.

Though if you really wanna be picky, you'll notice that "2nd" reads much thinner than the rest of the font and when compared to "1st" on the other mug.

Plus, Disney and their tiki designers are very aware of the collector's market and also us tiki fans. I remember the designers attending The Hukilau 3 or 4 years ago and I (and others) had all sorts of stuff which they made hand-signed. That was when I first learned that custom mugs were in the works for Trader Sam's.
