You Are Here Ornament – Japan 2 Winter Edition

Along with the full-sized mug, Starbucks has also released You Are Here Ornament – Japan v2 “Winter Edition”. Here’s something I’ve forgot to mention in my previous post – the new mug and ornament are light blue inside compared to red in the first edition. The string is also light blue.

Please also see side by side collage of v1 and v2:

You Are Here – Japan 2 “Winter Edition”

Release of the Starbucks You Are Here – Japan v2 will probably be the most important news of November 2018. Starbucks calls it “Winter Version” of the existing mug. Following elements symbolizing Japan winter were added, replacing existing ones:
– camellia flowers (Camellia Japonica, common camellia, Japanese camellia or Tsubaki), often called the rose of winter, since it prefers cool temperatures.
– Red-crowned cranes – one of the rarest cranes in the world. The cranes are most spectacular to watch as they dance, often in pairs, with seemingly choreographed dips and jumps.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Manila 2

Here is the second Asian Christmas YAH spotted online – Starbucks You Are Here Christmas Manila v2. It reveals more details about 2018 Edition as a whole. Specifically, the box will be green this time, as opposed to red one we always had. Also, it’s hard to judge based on this blurry image, but I think the “waves” in the bottom part of the front are painted red and green. Last year these were solid gold. Better quality pics are supposed to come soon and we will be able to tell for sure whether this is true.Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Philippines 2

One might think that all Christmas mugs will get red handle this year, as we saw it with European Country mugs, however it is not true for Asian mugs. Here’s Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Philippines v2 mug. That green color from the inside of the mug, makes it different from the last year’s version (where it was red). I believe this change is really subtle and Starbucks could definitely do better this time. Anyway, it’s here, and it’s up to you now to decide whether to collect these or not!… Read more

Been There – South Dakota 2

I sincerely though we’re done with US Error mugs. Boy, was I wrong! Here comes Starbucks Been There South Dakota v2! The element which has been adjusted is word “pronghorn” instead of “prong horn deer”. And it is actually a valid fix, since pronghorn, the animal from the mug, is not a deer, and it’s closest living relatives are the giraffes and okapi.
Here’s side by side comparison of two mugs together:

Been There – Charlotte 2

This is the sixth BT city mug with error so far. With the release of Been There Charlotte v2, Starbucks has fixed the names of the streets on the sign on the front of the mug. Instead of “Tyron st.” and “Trader st.”, which is wrong, it now says “Tryon st.” and “Trade st.” So again, we see two errors on the same mug. Nice job, Starbucks.
As for the intersection itself, it splits Charlotte Center City (a.k.a Uptown) into four neighborhoods.… Read more

Been There – Detroit 2

This was one of the first mugs from BT collection added to the site, yet it was still a preview. The actual release only happened today, and as you can guess, the delay was also caused by a misprint. Starbucks Been There Detroit v2 is missing “Startup city USA” “nickname” above Ambassador Bridge (which was replaced by two clouds). I, sincerely, tried to research where is that “nickname” coming from and can only assume it was supposed to represent the new era of entrepreneurship of Detroit.… Read more

Been There – Atlanta 2

Starbucks Been There Atlanta v2 has been released a couple weeks ago, yet I had no pictures of v1 to compare with. Now I do. As you can see from the collage below, the actual misprint was “Chattahoochie river” instead of “Сhattahoochee river”. It still amazes me how bad quality control at Starbucks was, while designing this series.
