And the yellow Krakatoa...I get why most people don't like it. I'm sort of torn down the middle - I never liked the "nacho cheese" orange of the mugs in the past, though this particular color of yellow doesn't seem to be the right fit. If it were a bit darker or saturated I think I'd be down. I do like the more gray-toned matte majority of the mug as opposed to the browner tone. Still, the only Krakatoa mug I own is the red and gray matte from Grog Grotto in Orlando.


i don't find the yellow inherently horrible...if its rich enough might like it....will wait to see better photos...lets be objective here


Peace

Yesterday was the first time I have ever been to the thrift store and DIDN'T buy a Tiki mug that turned up there. I'm actually being selective! It's weird, but I did it!

I saw one pic with a Made in China sticker on the bottom. So definitely not Tiki Farm.

Tiki Farm DOES manufacture a lot of their mugs in China and Mexico.

My mistake I thought they were primarily in Mexico.

Rumor is there's a "2nd edition" of last year's Hitchhiking Ghost mug coming soon to Sam's in Anaheim. Anyone know (a) is this true and (b) any details of the mug or when it may show up? I expect it'll be another nutso scene there if it's true.

Cheers!

The same blog that reported the mug last year is reporting the new version but no details beyond that.

I managed to get one of the WDW ones last year, taking advantage of being there when Hurricane Matthew made a glancing blow through the resort to go to Trader Sam's when they reopened.

It's true, no details on the final glaze though. There should be plenty of mugs this time around. I think Disney learned from their big, big mistake last year.

They also have a financial incentive - they may sell way more while the enthusiasm is high.

If Disney learned anything from last year's situation it was probably: Hey, we should charge MORE for these things!

But, yeah, I'll still drive over there to get mine the day social media lights up like Cincinnati about their release.


Cheers!
