ZoMG: The Lion King

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
I am so excited to talk about this upcoming Vinylmation set! The Lion King is one of the best Disney movies and I really think everyone is going to respond well to this collection! There are so many great characters that Disney could incorporate into this newly anticipated series and I am going to brain storm some ideas here with you guys!

We already mentioned on the site, we have Banzai (Villains 1) and Simba (Animation 1) but that doesn’t mean these characters wont be repeated. I am first of all assuming that this set will be the new mold just because the photo of Mufasa looks like the new mold shape, which means they could remake/innovate these characters to look even more amazing on the new mold.

We already have Mufasa so that is one character. Mufasa looks amazing. I like the way that his face is so big it takes up the whole body just about, it really makes him look ferocious!
Now going through the classic Lion King characters there are so many to choose from. Here are some of my guesses.

Simba – There will 100% be another Simba figure. He is the Lion King after all. The Simba from Animation 1 is a younger looking Simba so maybe this set will have an older version or both!

 I just can’t wait to be king Simba – Simba with the leaves all around his head
Copyright Disney
Nala – Simba’s best friend/girlfriend – Young Nala or Older Nala
Copyright Disney
Sarabi – Simba’s mommy

Timon – regular or maybe Timon in a hula skirt

Pumba

 Zazu

Rafiki – This figure would be great! They should definitely give him an accessory of his stick! It would fit perfectly into the new Vinylmation molds hand!

Scar

Pride Rock related figure – maybe with Rafiki holding up baby simba
Copyright Disney
Elephant graveyard related figure – maybe with all three hyenas   

I’m sure there are more things that I’m forgetting but let’s talk about this! Let me know in the comments what you guys are thinking!! We will have to wait and see the final product on August 29th when they are released!

  • I don’t think they should use the new mold I won’t be buying if it’s on the new mold!! STAY WITH THE OLD!!!! LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE!!!!

  • How can you get so excited by a new release with the new mold? They don’t “look even more amazing on the new mold”. Stop the denial! ONLY AN ORIGINAL MOLD IS A TRUE VINYLMATION!
