Nerds in Hand

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Update: The glasses on all these figures do come off, and, as long as the figures are not moved a lot, they will stay on after the band is removed. It is similar to the 3D Mickey glasses. All you have to do is find the right spot of the head to sit the glasses on.

Disney’s Nerds Rock! series has been a popular theme for clothing and other Park merchandise and today they were released in Vinylmation form. Each figure retails for $9.95 at D-Street in Orlando and CA and will be released soon at the Disney Store Online. We got our hands on the 8 figure Doug Strayer (9″ Urban 1 Tin Mickey, 9″ Urban 2 Tiki Mickey, 9″ Urban 5 Moon) designed Open Window set today. So sit back, relax and take a trip into the world of pocket protectors, chess club and weggies. We present to you, Nerds Rock!

Mickey Mouse

Mickey’s cool (yes, these Nerds are cool) feature is the pencil in his ear!

Minnie Mouse
Minnie and Dasiy have removable clip-on bows! Just think of the other Vinylmation that can wear bows now.

Donald Duck
Donald has a cool Propeller Hat. It doesn’t spin, but its still a great addition.
Goofy’s distinguishing feature is his braces.
All the characters in Nerds Rock! have designer glasses with Mickey heads on them.
All the character’s glasses are held on by the clear elastic bands we saw on the display figures awhile back. We thought they might just be for display, but it turns out the released figures have them. The bands are wrapped around the head and ears and lay over the sides of the glasses. The bands can be removed, but it seems to me the glasses would probably have a hard time staying on if you do and they do sit well enough to not require the bands. They are not too noticeable though, so I don’t see it giving most collectors a problem (if they want to keep them on).
What Nerd is complete without a place to protect his or her pens???

Disney Design group artist Doug Strayer put a ton of detail into this series.
