Update: 1/5/11 Several mentions of this as Star Wars #1! So I think that confirms at least a Star Wars #2. According to the Disney Vinylmation Blog today, the release schedule is as follows:

D-Street California –
Saturday the 15th Sunday the 16th at 8 am

1/4/11 Don’t know anything about Star Wars characters, or just want to see their Vinylmation forms. This is the page for you. We’ll try to update as often as we can.
Release date is January 16th 2011 at D-Street. (CA at the moment)
Here’s a look at the case the Star Wars Vinylmation.
The display case has a giant Darth Vader vinyl as it’s center piece. It looks like the photos we’ve seen of the Darth Vader vinyl (unlike the Muppets one which has a giant version of Kermit on it, but the design was Kermit from Park 1 not Kermit from the Muppets 1). Surrounding Darth Vinyl are streaks of light reminiscent for those seen when heading into Lightspeed.
On the left side is the Imperial symbol with the words, “Disney Park Vinyl 3″ collectible figure”. Does this mean it will only be in parks? If anything THIS is a series to also put in stores, but we shall see.
According to the right side of the display, this is part of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back which came out in 1980. I guess knowing that, we should have known that it wasn’t coming out in 2009.
Also worth noting is that it says “Star Wars Vinylmation 1″ so that seems to confirm (as if there was a doubt) that there will be a series 2!! Hopefully series 2 will have some 9″, because Steven said there would be no 9” for series 1.
The individual blind boxes also show Star Wars 1 and have the Rebel Alliance symbol on them.
As always, “No refunds, exchanges, or returns”
