Disney Cruiser Bus Sets are........Different!!!
#1
They are Different!!!

I just compared side to side my recent pick up of a Tokyo Disneyland Resorts Disney Cruiser Bus Set with the one I received a short time ago and...OMG... I had no idea...They Are Different!

The second set I just received (on right in photos) came in a differently designed box that I had not seen before and the Disney Cruiser Bus is different. Upon closer inspection even the Play Mat/Map of Tokyo Disneyland is different. I can't find any date on the box or buses to indicate when these where released. The only clue I can see is that one has a UPC sticker price from Tokyo Disneyland at 2000yen and the other has a 2800yen. Could this be an indicator of which one was released first with the cheaper one released first and the higher priced one a newer version? Does anyone know a year for either of these?

This is fantastic and quite lucky because my first one (on the left) is my favorite Motor Tomica vehicle and I want a second one and grabbed the never before seen one (on right) at a very good price. Now I have 2 of my favorites and they are different.
To me each set has its positives.

Which Disney Cruiser Bus do you like better?

Sorry Super, a typo there it should have been "Anorak".  It is a type of coat available in the uk (see here; Anorak)

In the UK it is a derogatory term we use to describe people such as 'train spotters' who stand at the end of a train platform collecting running numbers off the locomotives (well these days carriage numbers off commuter trains typically) and who are considered "sad" (or have no real life)

I'm with Super. While I'm not a bus nerd I love finding small detail stuff like this - differences between models etc. It's like you stumble across something that the mere mortal consumers weren't meant to notice and it helps you piece together some puzzle about product manufacture/design/marketing.

Ok, maybe I'm on the OCD spectrum also... LOL   Big Grin

Oh, don't get me wrong, labelling Super an Anorak or a Rivet Counter is not meant in a nasty way, after all I'm a bit of a nerd/anorak myself on some subjects (don't mention 3D printing for example Smile)
