Yesterday Disney released pictures of the two next nerds in the Nerds Rock! series: Stitch and Figment. We first heard about these extras last year and now it looks like they are getting ready to stumble into our lives. No word yet on an actual release date.
Check out the wicked beanie on top. I wonder if the propeller will spin? It does not on the Donald Nerd. His shirt seems to say, "Let your ideas take flight." It is the logo from the Imagination Institute. Amazing! A must have!
The poor guy doesn't look happy to be a nerd, but he sure is adorable. Even the glass cockeyed seem to add to the character. As many have said before, his shirt makes him look like a cast member of The Big Bang Theory. (Which just last episode had Shamy making their own podcast.) Also, a must buy!
Update: 2/13/11 The Disney Store Online will be releasing this series on February 25th, 2011.
Update: 2/7/11 We now have real pictures of Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and Goofy vinylamtions. We also snapped a picture of what seems to be the Nerds Rock poster in one of the vinylmation videos on the events page. It confirms the set as an 8 piece set. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Daisy, Chip, and Dale.
We also learned that Nerds Rock! will be released online at the Disney Store on February 25th.
2/6/11- With the announcement that the Nerds Rock! series will be released on February 18th at both D-Streets, we thought we'd go over everything we actually know about the series. It seems that so far in 2011 Disney has been very hush hush about release dates and actual content. Gone are the days of knowing every figure (and sometimes the chaser) in a set months before the release date is even mentioned. But here is what we have at the moment.
Nerds Rock! will be a series of Open cases. That mostly likely means they will be more than $9.95 each.
Each figure seems to be a representation of a "nerdy" version of the normal Disney characters.
In a video about Nightmare Before Christmas Vinylmations on the Disney Vinylmation Events Page, there is a quick shot of the Nerds Rock! collection. 8 vinyls are shown. That might mean this set only has 8 figures.
Here are the characters we've seen or know of at this point.
