Vinylmation News for 8.22.11 – Detailed D23 Previews, Park 7, Urban, Basketball, Alice, DCL and More
Thank you to the many fans who stopped by Vinylmation™ Area this past weekend during the D23 Expo. Thomas Scott sends his regards and said it was wonderful meeting with many of you.
During the Expo, we gave a sneak preview of many new and upcoming figures. We are happy to share those images with you today. Please note that dates are tentative and always subject to change.
We hope that fans had a great time seeing these figures in person. For those who missed the Expo, enjoy! Please note that some of the dates may change.
We shared four figures from Park #7 (which, contrary to semi-popular belief, is not Project Z). Thomas Scott designed the Space Figment figure. The artwork for this figure has been on display at Mission: SPACE at Epcot® since about June 2011.
Yet, the artwork was first seen in an article published on the Disney Parks Blog in May. Steven used the face of that figure as a background for one of the images.
Park #7 is currently scheduled for release in October 2011.
Arriving sooner than Park #7 will be new open window box figures celebrating Disney Cruise Line®. These figures will only be sold on the Disney Cruise Line ships at this point (a good reason to sail again … like we needed an excuse!).
We showed four figures from the upcoming limited release mystery series featuring Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. The series was designed by Thomas Scott and features a variety of characters from that animated classic. We love the packaging created for the series! Look for this to be released this coming fall.
We’ve shown a few pieces of artwork from Holiday #3 on the official Facebook Fan Page for Vinylmation. Below are a few of the actual 3-inch figures.
We also showed two 9-inch figures from this upcoming series.
Mike Sullivan designed the Thanksgiving inspired one while Maria Clapsis designed the 9-inch plus 3-inch set. Look for them to arrive later this year.
Basketball fans – raise your hands! Here are two figures featuring two teams from the NBA.
Here are three images from upcoming 9-inch figures from Urban #7.
