Oh my gosh, thank you so much for sharing these links with me! It's good to know the second one ships outside of the country-- my German is SO rusty, I would have never been able to find that. I'm in the US, but you never know, maybe the comic store here could order one for me, I don't know if it's Europe/German-exclusive merchandise or not.
Thanks again for taking the time to share with me! These are REALLY gorgeous figurines!
You’re very welcome! Should you want to order and need German (I don’t think you do, but you never know), I’m a German student and I really wouldn’t mind helping you out. ;) I’m not sure about it Europe-exclusive either. I can only find the figures in stores from Germany (on eBay) so I don’t know! I had begun thinking they were Germany-exclusive haha and then my friend bought Pascal in the store and today I went to the same store and got Rapunzel. I quite love these figures too. =’)
You’re very welcome! Such goodness deserves to be shared! <3
Your Rapunzel is beautiful!!! So is your new Minnie!!!
They're as adorable as you!!!
Awww, thank you :’D I really love them a whole lot <3 And that Minnie was a little expensive but she was screaming my name and I couldn’t say no *lol* Sadly bought a lot of Lord Of The Rings merchandise as well, today was very bad for my purse. D:
But that’s such a sweet thing to say, thank you dear! *huggles*
Ugh why not. I can imagine her doing everything in my head and at least she can do the high notes and she would give Glinda a heart instead of just humor and her Popular would be so funny and she would look so sweet in the pink dress. /end of rant
I know sweetie, I feel the same way. :(( I think Noortje would be fab but I very much have my doubts about Chantal.
I know about Noortje! SO. SAD. I hope she gets to be alternate or something. Is there anything known about the other characters? oh and I mean that Jim has IMproved ahaha.
Nope, she’s not the alternate either. I read it on a forum a long time ago, but unless I’m very mistaken Noortje is not likely to play Glinda at all.
And lol, point taken, point taken. I’m sure he has improved since he was 16, otherwise that’d be just sad, but I still don’t *like* him. xD; I wish I did. Would be much easier to watch musicals here in the Netherlands!
but but I think Jim isn’t really that bad! I mean, I don’t like him, but I really think he has approved over the years. I am much more disappointed about Chantal, I really think Noortje should have gotten the part, she would have been brilliant.
I know Charly Luske also auditioned for Fiyero and didn’t get it because of Jim so I just might be a bit better. Also I really just dislike Jim, his face (sorry Jim) and I definitely don’t think his voice is up to singing Wicked. Whereas on the other hand I’ve heard Charly sing Wicked and do well. So yeah. I’m bitter. But also I just really dislike Jim.
This Bakkum guy also looks annoying. I guess they think: the girls will love him...let's take him as Fiyero... -.- I don't know about Chantal but it seems as if Willemijn is the only one to safe the production Oo
Let me tell you a little story about Jim Bakkum. Back in.. 2002, or 2003, I don’t know, it was the first time the Dutch television broadcasted Idols (I think the German edition was Deutschland Sucht Ein Superstar). Jim auditioned and at first seemed pretty cool. He eventually became second on the show, which I thought was undeserved because there’s more talent in the show. But anyway, he released a single, didn’t become too successful as an idol anyway because he resorted to musicals. Musicals are the place where these idols end up, quite often anyway (Jamai Loman, who won this edition of Idols, was a.o. in Les Mis and is now in Urinetown, and Floortje, from a later edition, is currently in We Will Rock You). But somehow, Jim Bakkum is still madly popular and half the country swoons over him, even if he isn’t that handsome if you ask me. Sadly, he’s been ‘quite well established’ in the musical-part of the country, because he’s already had leading parts in Grease and Hairspray as well. :( Hence me not seeing Hairspray and I’m still sad about that.
I’m sure Chantal Jansen, the Glinda, could be just fine were it not that I think her incapable of hitting the high notes and she annoys the crap out of me. If you want to check her out, she was, amongst other things, the Dutch Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Jane in Tarzan. She’s even had a musical written for her, Petticoat. Although *why* I’ll never understand.
But yes, in my opinion Willemijn *is* the one who has to safe the production. If I were to go and Willemijn wouldn’t play.. I would be heartbroken. :’( I’m just sad that they cast 2 of my least favourite people in my favourite show.. (They cast my 2 other least favourite people in one of my other favourite musicals. Grr.)
Oooh, okay. Since it’s pretty close to were I live and I need to be elsewhere at 1… oh well, just a silly idea.
If you can make it for a little while, that would be cool! I’m not sure. Otherwise I’ll text you tomorrow when I’m in Leiden or something and you can decide then, yes? :)
I’m also not sure I can find the store on my own but we’ll see? XD And that seems like a fine plan~ -as long as you don’t mind I’ll bring my weekend bag-
OH NO THAT BAG IS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM. Ehm, I don’t care about that at all sweetie. xD
This is the route according to the website: Vanaf Leiden CS neem je bus 169 of 182. Na ongeveer 10 minuten stap je uit bij Halte Plantage. Ca. 200 meter doorlopen en na de brug direct linksaf: Utrechtse Jaagpad. Als je liever loopt: vanaf het station is het ongeveer 40 minuten lopen, vanuit het centrum 20. But I guess that makes more sense to you than to me! Would be fun if I could see you, even if just for a little while because me loves and misses you very much.
