San Diego Comic Con 2013 Vinylmation Explained

Check out all the news that has been flooding the web since the start of Comic Con. History seems to be repeating, as another sequel to a recalled series has been shown. Just as we had Whiskers & Tales after Furry Friends, we now seem to have a second Mask set after Disney recalled the first Mask set because of potentially offense artwork.

At Comic Con, Disney released a set of 8 Behind the Mask 2 figures all based on Disney characters (looks like they learned their lesson from Robots!).

There are 8 characters, and each one has a mask that can be taken off to reveal a different face underneath.
The figures in this set are The Evil Queen, Stitch, Dumbo, Jack Skellington, Madam Mim, Maleficent, Merlin, and Mickey.

On the first night, all 8 were available as a set. Then for the next four days, only 2 each will be available.

The packaging is kinda awesome. It took a while for me to see it, but there's a slit in the side where you can see the eyes of the character inside. Perfect!

"Weirdly, this evil characters in this set are exactly what I wanted for a set from Reflections Of Evil! Have the villains and their alter egos as vinylmation. So why does it happen at Comic Con? Who knows? Also, at the moment I think this series is better then anything we have for Reflections." -M.C.

Here are some of the figures with their masks off. I'm not sure if it's subtle commentary or not, but are the images underneath their "true' forms?

What do you think of this series?
