Wow, I 've never seen any of this! Although as I know I have the largest hyena collection so far (21 pieces [link] , it's an old picture, I have two or three newer one)
I guess you don't want to sell it... :)

I keep discovering new TLK stuff that I never knew before existed and I have been collecting Lion King stuff since the 90's. Do you have any photos of your TLK collection?
Kara-Kiwi's avatar
ive been collecting since it came out too XD When i was 14 or 15 i painted tlk murals all over my walls and had tlk litterallly everywhere! but i took most all of it down about 3 years ago, I might have pictures of it still somewhere but most of my stuff is in boxes now. all i have out now is a book case that holds a couple plushies, my sandra blue sculptures and couple broadway things. I got a couple posters and lithos on my walls too including one i painted. But yeah i dont have much out now sadly.

I have the Sandra Brue sculpture set too. They were always my favorite TLK figures. I remember paying a lot for those... If you manage to find photos of your collection/Lion King room. Please upload them. I would love to see them, it sounds like you had a really cool room. I too have been collecting Lion King for a very long time, since I was a kid. Now I am 28, have a career, own my own home and I still have not given it up :) Every once in a while I think about giving it up, but the problem is I still love it and enjoy it.

Yeah they are my favorite too^^ I only paid 110 for mine and ive seen them go for around 400 new! tlk is hard to give up :D It was the first movie i ever saw and well obviously i was very captivated by i and litterally grew up loving it! It just brings back my favorite childhood memories and i see nothing wrong "reliving" that, tlk is sorta my guilty pleasure XD

I've seen them once so far, but I did not have enough money to buy it myself, hence it is missing in my collection. :(

i have never seen this one! 8D im gonna have to try and find it now! (ive only ever seen the hyenas as bean-plushes, or as the plastic-headed ones, so this is AWESOME)

Thanks for your comment, Unfortunately they are quite hard to find. I believe I have only ever seen this one once or twice on eBay in over 10 years. I wish you luck finding one.

For some reason most toy manufacturers seem to ignore the villains. I guess they figure kids don't want to take a hyena to bed and cuddle with it, or Scar for that matter. The biggest Scar I know of was made by Applause, it is not that big and has a hard vinyl head.

I have several other Lion King plush made by Douglas as well. In my opinion they made the nicest TLK plush. Do you have any of the other Lion King characters made by Douglas?
