2/8/11 While searching around the videos on the Disney Vinylmation event page we ran across another interesting reveal (if you’ve been following us, you’ll know that this is not the first reveal from those videos found this week). Once again, thanks to @KevinVinyl24 for suggesting we take a second, closer look at them.
On the left is the poster we are basing everything on. It looks like the Bakery series will be a combination of styles from the Juniors 2 series and the Cupcake from Cutesters 1.
The design seems to represent an ice cream swirl or cupcake with a swirl of frosting on top.
The coloring is based on each character’s iconic clothing. So far it looks like we have Mickey, Minnie, Cheshire Cat, Tinkerbell, Daisy, and Genie… (remember these are all huge, huge, huge, assumptions.)
To the right is what these vinylmations might look like in real life. (The photo is from fancyfriendscakes.com.)
So far, we know nothing else about this series. No artist, no size, no number, no release date. Heck, we barely know what to put in this blog! So look for more info on these in the upcoming month? year?
|Update: 3/7/11 We’d like to thank alert reader Purdy who left a comment that lead us to a picture of a new pin set that is coming out on 3/10/11. While not called “Bakery” (it’s called Character Cupcakes) the series shows us characters as cupcakes. There are slight design changes (like the placement of Mickey’s buttons) but it’s another good starting point for imagining what this vinylmation series might look like!|
“I think it’s an interesting set, but I’m starting to get over the use of the main Disney characters to make sets. I have the Big Eyes, I don’t need them again, just looking like cupcakes this time.” -M.C.
“Yum! I’ll scoop these up right away. I always enjoy artistic representations of Disney characters and themes on Park merchandise. These are a bit Cutesterish to me… but I like the idea. I’d love to see a Jr.’s 2 series but on a more detailed and artistic 3″ scale. But in the mean time… I’ll save room (on my shelf) for these desserts” -Nick
Does this look like a set will want to add to your collection? Do you think the poster represents other characters? Let us know with a comment!
