EPCOT’s 40th Anniversary wasn’t the most overwhelming celebration, but they did make a decent effort to mark the occasion. Part of the Anniversary event was releasing limited-edition merchandise, and boy, did they release a lot of it. It’s taken all the self-control in the world not to buy any of it, but I think that has come to an end. I’ll let you guys guess which one of these new pieces will be coming home with me.
Figment and Spaceship Earth Light-up Figurine
One of the new items that dropped, I need; I need it right now. It’s the new Spaceship Earth statue that features Figment, and the best part is that it lights up! This new statuette costs $125. The base of Spaceship Earth has all the different logos from the pavilions, but of course, Figment is the center of attention. I think the best part is that on the front where it says,” Celebrating 40 years of Imagination.” The real question is, is this worth $125? In my opinion, I would save up for this figurine.
EPCOT 40th Anniversary Toothpick Holder/Shot Glass
Now, this piece of merchandise doesn’t really excite me as much, but it is new. This toothpick-holder-meets-shot-glass is confusing; at first, I thought it was a small candle holder like the ones you see on tables at restaurants. The new item costs $9.99, so for ten bucks, you can get either a toothpick holder, a shot glass, or maybe a candle holder, which really makes it a very versatile piece of merch.
Now be honest with me: Would you buy any of these new items, or would you just walk away? Let me know what you guys think in the comments.
