Vinylmation Speculation: More Park Starz Leaked?

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

Update: 9/14/11 9:58pm The answer seems to be no. Sorry for the false alarm. Disney Artist John Henselmeier (@johnhensel) just sent us this tweet: @VinylmationNews those are from a PVC park characters set that were sold in the parks a couple years ago.

None the less, it was fun to speculate on some Park Starz!

Through an email, one of our readers John brought a couple interesting videos to our attention. They were made by D23’s Disney Geek back in May, and may point to more figures in the Park Starz series. We tried to find the best screen shots and should have some improved images soon. We want to stress, these may or may not be Park Starz, but take a look for yourselves.

The giveaway is Big Al, who we know for sure is in the set. I can also see a Brier Rabbit from Splash Mountain under Big Al. In our interview with Thomas Scott and Casey Jones, I specifically asked about a Splash Mountain Vinylmation and they said one was on the way. The purple character looks like Figment, but not the bowling pin shaped Figment we know is in the set. Also, the big white (Yeti?) looking figure doesn’t look like the Yeti we have seen. Are these early prototypes?

In this second screen shot we see Yeti’s? arm, maybe a Mexican Small World figure, Big Al and a few others. Can you identify them? Once looks Mr. Toadish to me. The tall one to the right of all looks a little like the Graveyard Keeper from Mansion but not quite. Let us know what you think and what you see.

Acutally no. These are part of a playset similar to the movie themed playsets that are sold in the parks and in Disney Stores. They are sold together for around $12.

Here is what you are looking at in the picture: http://www.ebay.com/itm/WALT-DISNEY-THEME-PARK-CHARACTERS-FIGURES-SET-PLAYSET-/380290294797?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588b11640d

The interesting thing is this is a lot of the same characters that will be featured in Park Starz

Unfortunately, these aren’t from Park Starz. They’re from a PVC toy set from a year or two ago.

These appear to me to be be figures that have been out for some time.They were/are sold in set. “Disney Theme Park Characters Collectible Figures” or something like that on the package.

They are the pvc set from a few years ago, but they also seem to be the same characters/attractions hinted at in the Project Z links. Yeti, Big Al, Pirates, Tiki Room, Figment, Small World, Haunted Mansion. Except for Br’er Rabbit. Who knows, maybe that’s the chaser?

Lol, why not check out the park starz webpage as they’ve just shown pictures of two figures we haven’t seen yet… Butler Robot from Horizons (of which we’ve seen the head on eBay) and the cute Ice Gator from Blizzard Beach. Must have Ice Gator, its uber awesome!
