Urban 8
Price: $9.95
Release: November 11, 2011

Warrior
Maria Clapsis

This figure looks like and Indian warrior. He has a great looking head piece and wonderful markings and coloring on the body. The way the feet are painted, it appears he is standing in some brown brush. Will there be a spear accessory?

Rudos
Casey Jones

It appears to be a masked wrestler. He is blue with a squiggle of chest hair. He has a black tank top and tennis shoes. And possible flash bulbs in the ears.

Barricade
Thomas Scott

Directing traffic everywhere. The head is a clear yellow and the ears give the impression of a flashing light.

Beaded
Betsy DePedova

A new artist to the Vinylmation scene. This effort is a colorful figure full of different shapes. Flowers, dots, springs and stars.

Hot Dog
Dan Howard

Looks yummy. Though I prefer just ketchup and relish.
-MC

I like the hidden Mickey disguised as an onion! – Nick

Beatnik
Thomas Scott

This cool, cool cat has a simple black and white stripe shirt a beret and small artist-like eye glasses. He has some chin hair and a pencil mustache. The ears are painted a solid red.

Raccoon
Casey Jones

This little fellow looks happy. Maybe he saw the hotdog. It’s a purple raccoon with a bushy tail… just like the Cheshire cat’s.

Tree Frog
Robert Vann

Watch out! They are poisonous. This one has a great color green and a cool glossy finish.

Cave Painting
Thomas Scott

It looks like a painted you would see inside a cave. Different shapes and colors tell a story the artist wishes to pass down to us.

Yellow Robot
Billy Davis

The Disney Store artists have a robot series all to themselves, but the Disney Design group wanted some of their own. What job do you think this robot was built to perform?

Zombie Break Dancer
Monty Maldovan

Gold tooth, headphones cool blue shades and bling… this blue man is ready to get funky.

Mystery Chaser

Also with this series are some LE. These look amazing!!

9″ Sock Monkey

$44.95
December 9th 2011
LE 800

This one is adorable. Buy several, each for each woman in your life.

9″ Boxer

Artist: Casey Jones
$39.95
January 2012
LE 1000

This is a great looking piece. If any of the bandaids were mixed media, I’d almost think this was a one-of-a-kind.

Oh, and the boxing gloves, besides being awesome, are removable. When you can, check out his hands underneath.

9″ Saber Tooth Tiger

$39.95
January 2012

This figure was named on a placard at The Florida Project, but it was not displayed. It’s sounds pretty cool though. I hope the teeth are 3D.

  • Re: Casey Jones’ “Rudos”. Rudos is a term used in Mexico for the bad guys. He’s wearing a wresting singlet and wrestling shoes. I can’t wait to put this one next to the U1 and Robots wrestlers!

  • the first one looks like a or Aztech warrior over a indian… I will be getting about half this set but not all… I really am diggin the Beaded vinyl :) Super excited to see what Betsy DePedova brings to the vinyl table in the next few series :)

  • Pretty solid set. I’d say the Lucho wrestler will be the bearded man of this urban set. The tree frog looks like one of the Pikmin frogs! The raccoon is cute. Favorite one so far is the warrior (pending the look at the chaser)

  • Yellow Robot, Tree Frog is all I want from the set.. the beaded one would be great for target practice with that bulls eye on the back of it too.. kapow! LOL

  • I will only be getting Warrior, Berricade and Hot Dog. Can pass on all of the others really. Nice to see that they are only $9.95 instead of $12.95 otherwise I would probably be passing on all of them!

  • The one you’re calling Cave Painting is really cool. I’m usually bored by Thomas Scott’s designs, but I like that one. We need more urban art and abstract designs like that and the Rudo and less generic stuff like the Frog.

  • not an urban fan at all…none of the 3″ designs excite me, to be honest. but both 9″-ers look spectacular! won’t force me to break my ‘no urbans’ rule…but i do like them…

  • Can someone PLEASE tell me if these will be sold and available at all Disney Stores on the 11th!??????…. Or will these ONLY be available to purchase in the parks?? :) I WANT THEM!!! Thanks
    ! :)

    • These will not be at Disney Stores on the 11th. They should be available a few weeks to a month later at the DisneyStore.com.

  • I love the chaser and perhaps with the pointy hat it’ll be easier to find than the others since it’s the only one with an accessory :D I’m not one for the squeeze-test generally but that little guy is just too cute!
