Hot Toys is celebrating the Year of the Mouse by releasing 11" tall Mickey and Minnie Mouse collectible figures. They are all decked out in traditional Chinese Emperor and Empress garb.
Since I don't celebrate Chinese New Year, these figures don't do much for me. But I can see how they will be big with those who do...as well as Mickey and/or Minnie Mouse collectors.
