The Backside of Vinyls – BoardWalk Clown Slide by Vinylmation Isle

Thanks for joining me for this week’s Backside of Vinyls post on the BoardWalk Resort Clown Slide from Park #9. What I like about the backside of this vinyl is the simplicity. Less is definitely more here. The vinyl is based on the water slide at the resort pool, which isn’t overloaded with detail. I think Eric...

The Backside of Vinyls – EPCOT ’82 by Vinylmation Isle

I really love the retro feel of this Vinylmation! What really drew me to it was the inclusion of the logos formerly used for the original Future World attractions at EPCOT. In total, there are 9 logos that were used for those attractions. This vinyl features 6 of those 9 logos, spread across the front and the back of the figure,...

The Backside of Vinyls – Injun Joe’s Cave Vinylmation

For today’s Backside of Vinyls post, I’ll be taking a look at a figure that, in my opinion, is under appreciated: Injun Joe’s Cave from Park #13. Injun Joe’s Cave is nestled on Tom Sawyer’s Island at the Magic Kingdom, and is a place I frequented as a child searching for adventure. For those who...

Posted by in Vinylmation Articles

In honor of Donald Duck’s birthday, today I wanted to take a look at the back of the Wet Paint Donald Vinylmation from Park #6. This is another example of a figure that’s not necessarily obvious at first glance, especially if you’re only looking at the front. But, if you turn it around, you can see more clearly...

Posted by in Vinylmation Articles

The Sage of Time is one of the vinyls from the Tapestry of Nations Set in Park #7. This was one of my all time favorite shows at Walt Disney World! I love the detail that went into this vinyl, especially on the back. The Sage of Time had intricate detail on every inch of his costume, so I’m glad Casey Jones extended that...

The Backside of Vinyls – Poncho Mickey by Vinylmation Isle

Jun 09, 14 The Backside of Vinyls – Poncho Mickey by Vinylmation Isle

Posted by in Vinylmation Articles

The back side of Poncho Mickey makes this figure! When I first saw it from the front I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what it was. Then I figured out it was Mickey wearing a poncho, but from the front it doesn’t look all that impressive in my opinion. Turn the figure around and the back is undeniably Mickey wearing a...

Apr 18, 14 The Backside of Vinyls – Carousel of Progress John by Vinylmation Isle

Posted by in Vinylmation Articles

When I first saw this figure, I’ll admit it looked a little weird. But once you get used to it, you’ll notice that this figure was actually designed rather intelligently. Each side of this vinyl represents one of John’s outfits from each scene in the Carousel of Progress. My favorite touch on this vinyl is the fan...
