New Vinylmation Series- Furry Friends?

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

Today the vinylmation.com blog teased us with a little tidbit about a new series coming up. According to them, a new series called “Furry Friends” will be coming out from the Disney Store in early January 2012. They say the series will be a mystery box series (so we expect 11 figures plus a chaser) and will be designed by the Disney Store artists. This includes Enrique Pita, Jim Valeri, Oskar Mendez and Gerald Mendez as well as two new artists Quincy Sutton and Matt Chittavanichprapa.

So we say “Welcome” to Quincy and Matt, and look forward to hearing more info about this series.

Any ideas about what these might be? And why wouldn’t the Raccoon from Urban 8 be part of it?

i think it will be a series of all flocked (peach fuzz) vinylmations. We have seen these types before in the auction at Trade City last year with the Sports 1 Tennis ball, Urban 3 Cookie Jar and a few of the Cutesters 1. Not sure if they will be generic animals like the raccoon or Disney Characters like Sully and Lotso (flocked treatment given in the POP! vinyl format)

Sounds like it could be a good set. Would love it it to be different disney animals however that would resemble too much of the ETO Japanese set. Plus they would have titled it Disney Furry Friends so maybe not. I also agree and love the idea of Michael’s with the use of flocking. I look forward to seeing some actual designs in the future.
