Park 7- 40th Anniversary Tribute by Minnie Malice

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

The official Vinlymation blog just announced that the Park 7 series that we saw previewed at The Florida Project will be released on October 14th at the D-street locations. While it’s always great to have a release date, there is something particularly exciting about this announcement.

It was revealed that the Park 7 series will be considered a “tribute collection”. Though we’ve known that the Park Series was going to start marking “important” things in Disney history, this particular set is officially the “40th Anniversary Tribute Collection”.

But, what does that mean exactly? Well…

Lets start off with the tray box.

As you can see, the tray box has been decked out using the Walt Disney World 40th Anniversary Merchandise Collage, created by Natalie Kennedy, a Senior Graphic Designer with Disney Design Group.

This box is awesome, capturing the last 40 years beautifully.

Then there are the individual blind boxes.

Again, the Merchadise Collage has been used to decorate the box, bringing life to the usually boring, black box we are all familiar with.

With such a wonderful design, I might just hold onto the box for once, instead of just recycling them.

Then there are the indiviual figures.

A much anticipated series, from the first time we all caught a glimps of these figures, I think we all agreed that this series showcases some of the most creative uses of the Mickey figure we have seen to date. Specifically, how Casey Jones captured Donad’s “good side” in his interpretation of the Philharmagic attraction; Thomas Scott’s Space Figment, utilizing the Buzz Lightyear space helmet; and my personal favorite, the sparkly Tinkerbell with WINGS! (EEP!)

Here is the America on Parade figure from Park 7:

Also, here is a look at the Combo Topper:

The series will retail at $12.95 with the combo pack selling at $26.95.

So sad this is in the new mold. Disney with the Z project got their chance to do any shape. Why change Mickey mold? Look at this fat noseless version a good thing gone bad.

Awesome set. Any idea what the chaser is? I haven’t heard (or at least remember hearing) about it.

Considering I HATED Park 6, this is a big improvement. I really like Muppets and Tuba Donald, and the topper is GREAT. Interested to see what the chaser is!
