D23 Vinylmation Preview: DCL Update

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

Update: 9/21/11 All these figures will be on ships in September.

We found some more DCL exclusive figures. All these, and the previously shown characters set of DCL 3″ Vinylmation will be Open Edition. Meaning they will be on the ships for a time to come. We asked if they will be available at the Disney Store Online’s DCL section… the answer was probably not.

Each of this trio represents the individual ships: Magic, Wonder, Dream. They will Open edition and sold on the Cruise ships for a time to come.

Aquaduck Donald! We have seen concept art, but this looks amazing!!! He is siting in an inner tube. The tube looks like Goofy’s from Have a Laugh. And you can see his feet popping over the raft like he is seated in it. Spectacular!!! This will also be Open Edition on DCL ships.

This Open Edition DCL exclusive looks like a Castaway Cay depiction maybe? Or just a nice vacation. With Mickey resting in a hammock on the body, the head has a bright yellow sun and the shadows of palm trees against it.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Another Home Run!!! Even though some are re-do’s of the 9″ I think these are very well done and translate well to the new mold. Very happy they are open edition but dissapointed they may not be on the DCL section of DS.com. Hope they stick around a while

  • With AquaDonald’s feet hanging over the side of the innertube, does that mean he doesn’t have any real feet on the vinyl? That would be one way to get rid of the beer belly appearance! I DO like the face artwork of AquaDonald!

  • Josh :Don’t worry they will eventually be on the DCL section of DS.com.Shelf sitters!

    agree!! on the original mold these would have sold like hotcakes..on the new mold they’ll sit and collect dust!!

  • I dbout they will sit on the shelves as much as you guys would like to think. Since the majority of folks on the cruises are more casual Disney Fans/Cruisers, they won’t care about molds and just think they look cool/interesting and buy one. We have to look past the Diehard Collectors opinion and remember that Disney makes money on the average Disney fan who buys things because it is Disney.
