Medicom will be adding another Mickey Mouse figure to their Disney Vinyl Collectible Dolls line. The Mickey Franken (I prefer Franken Mickey) will be as shown...in brilliant black and white. Add this right next to your Runaway Brain figures.
Disney's Vinylmation Holiday #1 Series is now available in stores. They've also posted some turn around shots of all of the characters that are a part of the line.
Most of the big holidays are covered in the series...although I don't see a Thanksgiving figure. Although, maybe the one below that looks like a turd with butter on it is a turkey. Oh...and there's also a secret chase (or as Disney says....chaser) figure - the Valentine's Day hearts.
This October, Disney will release 12 brand-spanking-new Vinylmation designs. Vinylmation Cutesters Series #1 is a blind-boxed collection of a dozen cutesy characters. Perfect for the kiddos.
Fans and collectors not available to attend the inaugural D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA can now pre-order Disney's Tron-inspired "The Black Hole" V.I.N.CENT. art toy collectible (ATC) figure. From MINDstyle, V.I.N.CENT. measures over 10" tall and is painted in metallic blue color tones. The edition size is open to pre-orders during the production period -- starting today with orders being taken until 5:00PM (PDT) on Monday, September 14, 2009.
These will retail for $130. Once production is closed, the figures will no longer be available direct, except on a very limited basis at select retailers. To order by email: email@example.com
Coming this September, Disney will be releasing their Vinylmation Holiday Series #1. The line is made up of 11 blind boxed characters as well as 4 holiday themed 9" tall vinyl figures. The line represents a number of popular holidays. My favorite? The pumpkin.
MINDstyle unveiled their upcoming Jiminy Cricket vinyl figure. From one of Disney's most popular family films - Pinocchio - the infamous cricket will come complete with top hat and umbrella.
Mickey Monsters have hit the Disney Theme Parks.
These plushies try to blend in by disguising themselves as Mickey and a host of other
characters that they encounter on their visit to the park.
Series 1 consists of 6 Mickey Monsters: Murff, Cheeky Bubbles, Ogg, Keeti, Ralf, and Eeku. Each plush will come with a special hang tag that contain a background story about the character. Look for them to
retail for $12.95.
On July 24th, Disney released their Vinylmation Urban Series #2. They dropped six 9" tall vinyl figures in addition to the 12 figure 3" tall blind-boxed series. Hmm...still not sure what's so "urban" about this series. I'd suggest getting some designer toy artists to work their magic on these figures.
Last month, Disney released a new series of their popular Vinylmation 3" tall figures. The Vinylmation Clear Series #1 features 12 different colors (including 1 mystery version). These don't have any designs on them, so they'd be perfect for customizing.
With the Bloc28 major global launch by Disney taking place at Times Square in Hong Kong this July, fans will be able to experience Mickey Mouse being reinterpreted by some of the hottest artists as part of MINDstyle's art toy collectibles line.
Mickey by Suiko is the second vinyl toy release for Disney through MINDstyle's premium ATC line. Suiko is widely known as one of Japan's best graffiti writers and contributes a very unique interpretation with his Mickey collaboration for Bloc28.
Personally, I like the crazy stylized look of this take on the iconic rodent. Not sure I'm digging the mouse or the artist signature across the front. But it's a different take on everyone's favorite mouse.
