Rat Swag! [Jun. 24th, 2007|09:43 pm]
Went to the local Disney store and, sure enough, the new Ratatouille merchandise is out! So, I went a little crazy... But how often do you see so much cute rat swag?

Ratties ratties ratties ratties ratties

A bunch of Remy (the gray one) and Emile (the brown one) goodies. I didn't pick up a larger Remy plush since I was a little disappointed with how they looked. They weren't a really good interpretation of the character and had some mistakes (misaligned eyes, eyelids the wrong color).

I really like the rat oven mitt. Plus it came with an apron that was actually adult-sized, to my surprise. It was folded up and I guessed that it was a kid's apron. Score!

Sadly, the Ratatouille pajamas with rat head hoods were only in child sizes. Think how much time that'd save on making a fursuit! You could just buy one off the rack. Alas...

(And at this point, I'm really reeeeeeally hoping it's a good movie. :) )

It's not a good movie.

It's an exceptional movie. Much <3 for Pixar. :)

Ratatouille is pulling an impressive feat that all the pre-release reviews have been positively glowing from Rotten Tomatoes (entry for Ratatouille); while this doesn't have tier one reviewers, this is a unusual result at this point (most "good" films even usually have one or two bad reviews from the off-top tier reviewers).

Oh, it will be! I'm sure of it. You can't imagine how much I'm missing not having a Disney store in Australia anymore. :( I know I could mail order, but that means I don't get to see what I'm buying in person and I'll have to pay a lot in postage.

BTW, has my care package arrived yet?

Well, most of the stuff looked pretty good. The only real disappointment was the large (8"?) Remy plush, as I mentioned.

No package yet... I'll be sure to let you know when it arrives.

Rat Merch

Oh, dear. I foresee much the same showing up at our house.

The apron is a must-have for my cookin' rat.

Are the mitts actually, you know, functional? Or more just fluffity?

Re: Rat Merch

Haven't tried it out, but it appears to be a decent oven mitt. The normal thick outer fabric and looped-cotton lining.

Cleaning out old email...

If you weren't able to find them and you're interested, they do still have them at my Disney Store...

It does actually look like a cute movie. While Ocicat and I were at a nearby Friday's, they were showing clips of it on the TV screen for the "Disney night" on one of the local channels. Might have perked my interests to see this in theaters as well (and it's very rare to get me to a movie theater!). :)

It is Freeking awesome movie.. Don't let anyone spoil it for you tho, it is one of those that it can be easily trashed for you if someone gives away the ending, so go see it on opening night. Movie puts cute back into Rats. :>

(Poor Chuck E. Cheese had to be turned into a mouse, cuz people thought him being a rat was bad..)

Ah, good to hear! Yay.

And, yes, they changed Chuck and try to avoid mentioning his species now. We get such a bad public image, I tell ya!

Me, too - but Pixar hasn't let me down yet!

Maybe they'll come out with adult-size costumes around Halloween.

I was at Disneyland yesterday and Saturday. They had both Remy and Emile (the walkaround characters) out in the park. I got pics, but only from a distance since I was on board the Columbia at the time. I'll make a post to my LJ later.

I've seen a few pics start popping up on the net. (More are certainly welcome.) Looks like they did some pretty good interpretations of the characters, too! Cuteness.

Yep. And you want synchronicity? (Why doesn't my spell-checked like that word?) Ask me to tell you about Timothy's name sometime. Oy. :)
