Vinylmation Speculation

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

Sometimes it’s fun to take some Vinylmation info and rumors out there and speculate on what’s to come. We know Disney plans to put out an alien Vinylmation after this mysterious picture was posted on the Vinylmation blog yesterday:

Couple this, with the rumor of a Robots series coming to Disney Stores… and you get the weirdest and coolest set made to date:

We contacted Disney today and they do not have a comment at this time on the rumored Disney Store exclusive Robots or Cutesters Like Us series. We will let you know the details when we hear more.
As for the Alien, he may also be a release at the upcoming Sci Fi Trading Academy at Disneyland on June 24th (Details). So far, only pins have been announced as far as merchandise available at the event. A quick look at the catalog of pins shows that most are Disney or “fun” themed designs… only one came close to the classic alien look of the above Vinylmation concept art.
That pin catalog also gave us peak at a Robot themed pin set, filled with Disney Robots from past and present:
This great looking set includes Aly San San (Star Tours 2), R2-MK (Star Wars Weekends), WALL-E, V.I.N.CENT (Disney’s Black Hole), B.E.N. (Disney’s Treasure Planet). Might we see a Vinylmation set along the same lines?
What do you think about the Alien? Just an upcoming Urban figure or a Sci Fi set? How about the possibility of a Robots series and another Cutesters themed set? It’s fun to speculate on what’s to come in Vinylmation and we will be sure to bring you any official news from Disney as we get it.
