Update: 12/23/11 Nick here. I was sleeping last night when MC found and posted this amazing news. I complain a little about the perceived direction of Vinylmation where too many sets are coming out and many sets are just taking the Characters and stuffing them into generic, mass appeal sets. And I get that from a corporation POV, Disney needs some of those, but they seem to demean the hobby as a whole in a way that is hard to describe. But this set... BLOWS ME AWAY. Just look at the artistic detail on Mickey and Buzz's faces! Wow. This set just has so much creativity and magic that I can not wait until January 30th! I will be releasing my Top Ten headlines of 2011 next week, and this set proves on of my points.
Today vinylmation.com also revealed a whole new series. This series will be a Disney Store series that celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Disney Stores.
Jim Valeri, who is a great guy and whom we never see enough vinyl from, has designed this whole series. It looks like the series will be a 12 figure blind box set with 11 known figures and one mystery chaser. It will hit Disney Stores on January 30th, 2012.
This series also includes a special Sorcerer Mickey and a stand that lights the vinyls up when put on them. (Evilos also mentioned that it could light up other figures. I can't wait to put my DLR Passholder Ariel on it.)
