Agent P Trade Night Vinylmation

The first photo of the normal version of the Agent P Trade Night Vinylmation has surfaced. It is an LE 450, but we do not yet know the release date.

Rare Mammoth Unearthed

We thought it didn't exist. Disney did not promote them. No one had claimed to pull one. ...until now. About 6 month after Urban Redux 2 was released, a collector posted a photo of a one-of-a-kind Super Chaser on Vinylmation Exchange.

Eric Pham was the lucky collector and posted this message on Vinylmation Exchange.
Not sure what this one is? Got it from a bloxing purchase of Urban Redux 2 at I could not find any info from anywhere. What do u guys think??
It is a hand drawn, one-of-a-kind figure based on the Mammoth figure in Urban Redux Series 2. The first series had 24 Super Chasers overall (4 hand drawn figures for each of 6 designs). This is the first we have documented from series 2.

Indiana Jones Photoshoot

This was a very fun photoshoot! Hope you enjoy these photos of the Indy Vinylmation taken around Disney's Hollywood Studios. We have some alternate photos and edits on

Spotlight on Justin Marshall's Epcot Monorail

We have featured Justin many times before, and I love his take on Epcot history. He now has a new custom up for sale.
I have a love for Epcot that ironically is built on nostalgia. Epcot itself is a park built around the future. Many know my previous works involving themes from Journey into Imagination, but I also like the Disney monorail system. My Favorite color is green, and monorail lime rides passengers from the Magic Kingdom to Epcot. So with the combination of that I wanted to create one where Figment was at the helm. The back is inspired from retro merchandise that was sold in the 1980's through the early 90's. The vinyl in the photo isn't glossed to avoid glare from lighting, but will get a gloss coat to give it a automobile look. Hope you like this vinyl based on past and future and stay tuned for more customs to surface, Thanks - JCHAD

Nerds Rock! Explained

Nerds Rock!
Release Date: February 25th, 2011
Artist: Doug Strayer
Open Edition, Open Window series featuring the Nerds Rock! artwork that is also used on other merchandise.

Update 5/26/14 Disney will be re-releasing Nerds Rock! Mickey, Minnie and Stitch on March 21, 2014. They will be on the new Mickey (and Minnie) platform and have undergone some design alterations. They will be $12.95.

Update 6/10/12 Available NOW online through the Vinylmation Facebook page store. Then will still be available at D-Streets starting June 22.

Update 5/29/12 Release date of June 22 and price of $12.95 confirmed for Stitch and Figment.

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.
Nerd Figment

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!
Nerd Stitch

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.


We saw the 3" figure at Trade City and then later at Festival of the Masters. Notice the tape on his glasses.

We saw the 3" figure at Trade City and then later at Festival of the Masters. He's got buck teeth and a pocket protector.

We first saw this figure at the Festival of the Masters. I love his t-shirt. Reminds me of Big Bang Theory.
A clip of a video from the Vinylmation Events Page.
This confirms several more 3" figures. We've pulled pins to show you what the characters look like, although I'm sure the vinyls final design will be different from these pins.

In the video she has a bow, but here she doesn't. What happened to it??. I'm not sure if that's a skirt like in the pins or if it's her pants pulled way up high.


Tongue hanging down, it's Pluto. No pants however.

The vinyl shows his braces. Also, a fancy hat accessory.

Looks like the Vinylmation version will have red shorts and blue glasses (Instead of the gray pants he wears in other versions of Nerds Rock1). They keep the pencil in his ear, and it seems to be an accessory!

The last of the 8 confirmed by the video (the screen shot we have doesn't show it, but she's on the row to the right of Donald)

Confirmed in the Nerds Rock! line overall, and also the pin sets, but not seen in the video. Will he be part of the vinylmation set, or will there only be the 8 we saw in the video?

Update: 2/7/11 From a screen capture of the poster it doesn't look like there is room for another figure, and Stitch is not part of the group. But I'm not giving up hope, maybe as a secret character, or a Jr., or as a cast trade only vinyl!

Flags Explained

Release Date: January 21, 2011
Open edition, Open window series

Update: 02/26/14 The American Flag open window figure will be re-released on March 21, 2014. It will be on the new Mickey platform and will feature a slight re-design.

Puerto Rico flag added to the lineup.

The Flag Vinylmation finally have a release date. They will be released in open boxes so you can choose which country you want (like the Sports and Nightmare Before Christmas).

At the D-Street in Florida they will be released on January 21st.

At the D-Street in California they will be released on January 28th.

The 12 vinylmation will be representations of the 11 countries in EPCOT's World Showcase along with Brazil. Brazil always has a lot of people visiting the parks, so it made sense to represent them.

Here are the rundown of the countries and a look at the Disney photos of them. (We'll start at the entrance of the World Showcase and move clockwise around the lake.

Filled with gnomes, this country is also the location of the Maelstrom viking boat ride.

This country holds the Reflections of China film.

If the phone in the red box is ringing, pick it up. It might be the guys from Destination Disney Radio Show. You could become famous!

And don't forget the O Canada! 360 degree film hosted by Martin Short. Also check out the Mounties.

Just look around. There's always a tour group from Brazil somewhere in the park. (They're the ones wearing matching shirts!)
