This is the 4th Figment piece that Walt Disney World has released. The first one (which I don't have and still looking for) was a simple Figment piece. The 2nd one featured the Dreamfinder and the 3rd was Figment with a tube of rainbow paint. The 2nd one I was able to purchase at Disney World in 2006, as there were many made and left over. The 3rd piece was released in 2008 and a little more limited (750 pieces). I had to mail order this one, and thankfully I did, as it sold out on the release weekend.
So, with the 4th one, I ran into a bit of a situation. The piece comes out on April 25th, a week and a half before I arrive. After a few phone calls, I was told that I could not have the piece put aside for me until I arrive and I could not have it "shipped" to the resort. Which means, I have to pay the $100 to ship it to Canada.... Almost doubling the purchase price of this piece!!!! I have always complained about the shipping fees to Canada as they are quite expensive. I realize that it is expensive to ship overseas, but Canada is not overseas!
Needless to say, I have ordered one for me and I'm going to try and make a few more phone calls to see if they can make an exception. Wish me luck!
