So, I bet y'all are wondering why I suddenly returned...I've been really busy finishing off my second-to-last year of homeschooling but today I felt like I needed to catch up on all the character news!

I was looking through Jon's fantastic photos from your recent DL trip and came across Timon, and he looks GREAT! I noticed that they had fixed up his legs over at Walt Disney World previously but now there appear to have been some changes to his head as well... I want to hear what you guys think about this makeover. I don't have photos (they're not mine after all) but here's a link to one of Jon's: http://www.flickr.com/photos/peterpanfan1953/7763443762/sizes/l/in/photostream/

Well, it is definitely great to have you back! Big Grin

As for Timon, to be honest, sometimes I get so caught up in everything else I don't even notice haha. It wasn't until we were back I was like "oh, wait a minute, was Timon the new one?!" LOL!
Obviously the seamless transition worked wonders on me and therefore I can only say it works great!! LOL!!

One thing I did just notice in that shot, is his hair. Umm.. why is it so flat all of a sudden?! Never used to be! Hopefully this was a styling error that day, and NOT the new normal!! Will have to see what he is like in Florida in a few weeks to see if the hair is back to normal...

Glad to have you back!

I really like the updated Timon... a lot of the recent makeovers have taken some getting used to for me; however, that isn't the case with Timon... think he looks TONS better... and I hope they do similar makeovers for some of the other "baggy pajamas" looking characters.

Glad you like the pictures!! I will go ahead and embed the one you linked to

It seems like they're still using the old one some places though...he's taken Lilo's place on the Steamboat Willie in WDW's Fantasmic and it's still good old PJ-Timon. Awful weird seeing Timon and Stitch standing together on the front...reminds me of a certain thread that we've got going right now I'd imagine DLP hasn't gotten the update yet either.

I was quoted as saying the other day that I didn't like it, but I looked at a few videos of new timon the other day and.. wow! I love his tail it's so bouncy and I've been looking at it a lot and I am now convinced. It is a step forward indeed. But yes the thing that I think was putting me off at first was the hair and in some pictures I've seen his face looked too compact but I now realise this is not the case. Hopefully they are working on the next update.

I wouldn't mind if Stitch was updated. He does look like a baggy set of pyjamas indeed. I think Angel looks pretty neat and Stitch could follow suit.

Love Timon's new legs but the hair? What's going on here, he looks like he's caught in a storm (or else plastered it down to sing opera) hopefully as has already been mentioned this was just a bad hair day, and it will be fluffy again! =)
