WDWNT: The Magazine – “What is Vinylmation?”

What is Vinylmation? by Brian Shapiro Always remember that this whole thing was started by a mouse.  I’m not quoting Walt Disney describing his company, I’m talking about Vinylmation!  When Vinylmation made its debut a few short years ago, the only platforms available were the three-inch and nine-inch Mickey Mouse shaped molds.  Shortly after, a one and a half inch Junior figure was introduced, but it was still shaped liked Mickey.  The three-inch figure, followed by the nine-inch figure, went through a redesign that simplified the shape to facilitate artists’ designs and improve manufacturing, but the shape was still that of Walt’s iconic mouse.  Today, all that has changed, and Vinylmation no longer refers to an artistic interpretation of a [...]

The Vinylmation Station – June 24th, 2012

The Vinylmation Station – June 24th, 2012

By Brian Shapiro Celebration with Vinylmation is the theme of recent releases and previews. Friday, June 15, saw the release of many exciting figures, starting with the Park Starz Mr. Lincoln variant at both D Streets and online. It celebrates Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln in Disneyland and The Hall of Presidents in Walt Disney World. Designed by Casey Jones and Thomas Scott of the Disney Design Group, this inspired LE 2500 figure is identical to the original design except it is copper toned, like a penny! Similar to last week’s Bride variant, Abe comes in a specially designed tin. The retail price is $24.95, and the online quantities sold out in about an hour. If Abe Lincoln doesn’t get [...]

The Vinylmation Station – May 14th, 2012

By Brian Shapiro Vinylmation news got off to a wicked start this week with a much anticipated preview of two figures from the Vinylmation Villains #3 series, and they did not disappoint! The two designs released feature Chernabog from Fantasia and the coachman from Pinocchio. The detail on these figures is tremendous. The light and shadows on Chernabog are perfect, and the large wing accessories are impressive. The coachman is equally detailed and once again demonstrates one of the best aspects of Vinylmation, the penchant to showcase obscure Disney characters that don’t usually appear in merchandise. These figures will be released at Disney Stores on June 18, and will retail for $9.95 each. With Father’s Day on June 17, what [...]

The Disney Parks have some exciting and unique mefchandise offerings coming up in 2012 and Steven Miller was nice enough to share a sneak peek at some of the product on the Disney Parks Blog: I feel like a time traveler at Disney Theme Park Merchandise.
