Brave: Merida Tsum Tsum (Japan Exclusive—Reversable Characters)

Hey all! Today I'm taking a quick look at the very last Pixar Tsum Tsum I needed for my collection (for now—unless more get made): Merida from Brave, a Disney Store Japan exclusive! I was finally able to track this one on eBay not too long ago for a reasonable price. 

This Merida is part of the series I talked about in THIS POST, where all the characters are reversible and can be changed into a Pixar ball (you can see the velcro and Pixar ball colors in the underneath shot down below). All of the characters included in that series are ones that have been released in other series (so I didn't feel the need to get them) except for Merida here. This is the only Tsum Tsum release of Merida in this size, though a "micro" version was released in this princess castle set.

Again, in my previous post, I talk about how I also got one other in this series just to display it as a Pixar ball. This one here, of course, will be displayed just as Merida. Love the embroidered bow detail on her side, her subtlety rosy cheeks and her look overall! 

Below are the official Disney Store photos so you can see who's all included in the full assortment and how the reversible feature works.

Even though Brave is one of my personal least favorite Pixar films, I'm thrilled to finally have this Tsum Tsum (and the character in general) as part of my collection! My Tsum Tsum shelf is officially completely full now (I had to squeeze her in and she just barely fit), so I kind of hope this is the end of the line as much as I love them and would like to see new character from Pixar's newest films get made. Onward, Soul and Luca Tsums would have looked amazing no doubt!

What are your thoughts? I feel this is certainly a lesser known piece, so I'm happy to be able to spread the word here. If you're interested in grabbing one for your collection, I'd check out current eBay listings HERE.
