I received my mug last night and its not that much better in person. Its cute and will fit my wife but its not amazing. The real mistake is the glaze, int he areas where its lighter you can tell it would be a better mug with a better, lighter, glaze.

This year's Halloween mugs are hitting. Grog Grotto (FL) released their's last week and is approaching the end of their supply, Enchanted Tiki Bar (CA) will start selling their's tomorrow. They both have the same mug with one key difference. The mug s based on the Hatbox Ghost in the Haunted Mansion. The effect in the mansion is that the ghost's head/face changes from on top its body to inside the hatbox its holding. The FL mug has the face in the hatbox while the CA mug will have the face on the body. Here's a pic I found online of the FL one.

This is pretty cool, and way better than that elephant mug. I like Florida's version better and would get one for myself if I could. But... IT'S NOT TIKI!!!!!!

All respect to Thor and his broad spectrum of work, but even after his explanation on the "elephant crisis of 2017" I wasn't sold. I believe something stronger could have been produced. Regarding the latest addition to Haunted Mansion "tiki" I tend to agree: it's not tiki! But the draw of it of course is that it's Haunted Mansion, which is partly why I own it. In general I like the sculpt, but I'm fully aware it isn't tiki. You could pin it in the same category as the Geeky Tiki or Mondo "tiki" mugs which I'm quite outspoken on regarding how much I hate them. There's very little actual tiki to them, if any.

I'd prefer to see some original designs that are tiki-influenced and less Disney-influenced. We all know that Kevin and Jody had a great grasp of Adventureland tiki as their concepts show. I do know there are possibly some new mugs coming down the line but can't speak as to their appearances.

I (well, my wife) has managed to acquire one of the new Halloween mugs from each coast so we'll be adding them to our collection. I agree they aren't tiki and found the prior Hitchhiking Ghost Halloween mug more in line with the tiki idea.

Apparently Disneyland's Trader Sam's will be getting a new Kraken Bowl soon. That's the only rumored new mug, though they'll be getting new editions of their current mugs (so different glazes).
