In this picture you can see the adult Simba and Nala 2011 and those from the 90's.
The old ones are smaller and have button eyes, but are firmer.

They only had cubs unless it was the action figures with Mufasa and Scar! Do you think I could get some for Lion King 2?

Just be careful because people tend to overprice him. He was sold 22$ in disney stores.

does nala have blue eyes in the newer plush?
Reply

Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Mmm I'm not home right now so I can't look, but if I recall correctly they are blueish but still a bit green.
Btw which colour are they supposed to be? 'Cauz in the movie, when she grows up, her eyes are more blue than green.

its a running argument among TLK fans. some say green, some say blue. im of the green eye color opinion camp, myself.

I did a quick look for screen shots on the internet and Nala's eyes seem to be obviously more greenish when she's a kid, but as she grows up, they seem to have become more blueish.
Look [link]
But anyway :P I personally like both and don't really care what is true :P

:iconrinjapine:
Rinjapine Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
yea, i know. they look blue in the jungle. ive played with it, and thats due to lighting. they come out a greener color if you match colors.
i go with a sea green. its half green, half blue. and it matches with nala's eye colors in the official statuette thing Disney used while making the movie ;)

Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
haha okay :P I'm not expert at all.
In French we have a colour that is called "Turquoise" which is a mix of green and blue together. Idk what it's called in English.
To me that's what Nala's eyes are in general lol :P No fights haha

:iconlaurel-lion:
Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
Oh really? I personally don't really mind, but I'm pretty sure they are bluer when she grows up in TLK 1.
Like, the part where she finds Simba in the jungle...no?

Rinjapine Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
yes, they become blue in some shots. in some theyre grey, and others, theyre green. ^^

We still need the Applause ones XD, personally I think the new one's look more like the movie characters but I really like the old ones too. :nod: -Shady

haha well maybe the fact that they have embroided eyes help them looking more like the movie characters, but the colors don't match.

Maybe Simba's color's are a little light but I think Nala looks pretty close. Either way some of my favorite plushes don't look anything like the characters lol XD -Shady

The Applause ones are great, but I have to disagree with the other comments; I actually prefer the new Disney Store ones--especially the Disney Store Nala. The 2011 Simba's color is too pale, but I really dislike the Applause Simba's eyes more than I dislike the Disney Store Simba's color. And I honestly think that the 2011 Disney Store Nala looks better than the Applause Simba in every way; she's larger, her eyes sparkle, and from the pictures I've seen, she looks more proportional. :)

Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
haha I agree with you :P This Nala is probably my favourite :)The old Nala seems to have a really small head haha
I like that the new ones are bigger.
I prefer the older one fabric though. And also, something that we can't see on this picture, the older Simba has a big of extra fur behind his "elbows", which is really cool :)

:iconneglectedpirate7:
neglectedpirate7 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012
I prefer the old fabric also. I hate that the majority of Disney Store plushies are made of that smooth, microfiber-like fabric now. I mean it isn't terrible, but it's definitely not my favorite fabric. :/

And yep, I like that the older Simba has tufts of hair behind his elbows. That's awesome.

The older ones not only better reflect their characters but also match the movie colors.
The newer ones look kinda deformed, especially Simba's mane and both their noses.
Reply
:iconlaurel-lion:
Laurel-Lion Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
well the noses don't bother me, it's the nostrils that do! The nostrils are made way too big, and it's worse for the new Scar, which is why I hadn't bought him at first.
