Once we got over the excitement of the addition of Lightsabers to Luke and Vader’s Vinylmation figures, we missed the rocket pack on the back of Boba Fett. Well, the Disney Parks Blog released this turnaround photo today:

This set just keeps getting better and better! What other surprises do they have in store for us? We will see at the Midnight release party this Thursday, January 13th at D-Street in Orlando.
Another detail released today is the Star Wars set is a parks exclusive. It will not show up on the online Disney Store or at Disney Stores around the country.
Disney Design Artist Mike Sullivan is the designer of the Star Wars set. Here is what he had to say on the Disney Parks Blog:
“We began with several rough sketches of characters we wanted in the series,” explained Mike. “We selected characters from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary. With so many memorable characters in the film, it was difficult to select just 12 figures. We worked closely with the great team at LucasFilm to make the final choices for this first series.”

Are you wearing a costume for the release event? Make sure to bring some doubles for trading as we all sit outside D-Street Thursday night. And I can’t wait to talk to everybody in line about Vinylmation. Destination Vinylmation is around for fans of Vinylmation, so we welcome your input.
