Wow, this is nifty. I do of course understand about the different helmet; they simply don't make the old design any longer (as I understand it, it was determined to be a bit too fragile, breaking at the chin strap too easily - we AFOLs may have enormous affection for it, but by TLG's standards it's apparently now considered to not meet their quality standards).
It does seem a bit odd (the construction, that is), but I guess the idea is that one would buy as many of these as one wants to be able to build a modular display unit for one's minifigures, sizable to whatever number of minifigures one wishes to display. I wonder whether anyone will actually buy huge numbers of this set and build huge display units.
Each 60-count box of 71012 Disney Minifigures Series 1 contains:
- 4 copies apiece of Mickey Mouse, the Genie, Stitch, Mr. Incredible, Syndrome, and the Pizza Planet Alien
- 3 copies apiece of everyone else
