Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland is a 1951 animated classic. Walt was always fascinated with Lewis Carroll’s stories of Alice and used the character in many productions before this. He toyed with the idea of mixing live action and animation but settled on a fully animated feature. The animation in this film is fascinating with a brilliant Wonderland designed by Mary Blair of Small World fame. Filled with many memorable characters, this film is perfect for a set of Vinylmation all to it’s own.
Update: 11/3/11 At the D-Street Orlando Alice release on Friday 11/4, there will be 3 one-of-a-kind 9″ Alice customs available for $1000 each.
Disney also showed off some packaging details. As with the entire set, the box and tray art was designed by Thomas Scott.
Update: 10/4/11 Disney released a picture of the box art for the set. Check it out.
Update: 10/2/11 Alice release dates announced. 11/4 at D-Street Disney World and 11/5 D-Street Disneyland. On the 5th at Disneyland artist Thomas Scott will also be signing from 10 AM – Noon.
Update: 9/11/11 Thanks to The Florida Project we know the 11 3″ pieces.
Update: 8/29/11 We added some pictures from D23 and now have confirmed that Thomas Scott is the artist of the entire set.
Update: 5/31/11 According to a comment from Kristi, the eBay sale has been pulled. Also, based on various opinions, it seems likely that the piece was stolen or pulled from a trash bin.
Update: 5/30/11 Disney has just gotten back to us about the Alice series. It has not been officially released yet in any part of the world and they are looking into how any of the figures got out and onto eBay. They are currently working on this and other matters to ensure good communication between all the places that carry Vinylmation and smooth out release issues.
Update: 5/30/11 There was a listing for the Green Hedgehog on eBay. It has been listed by a seller in Hong Kong (thank @lindols)We do not know the details of the release, or if it has been officially released. We have contacted Disney and are awaiting a response. We have also learned by the seller’s photo that the Green Hedgehog, therefor maybe the entire set, was designed by Thomas Scott.
The Alice in Wonderland series will also have several LE sets.
|9″ Walrus and 3″ Carpenter
Voiced by: J. Pat O’Malley
|3″ Cheshire 2 pack
|The future?||Only one 9″? Will there be more?|
*Note: The following was speculation before we knew more about the set. We can only speculate on the rest of the set as of right now:
Alice’s cat. There was a piece on eBay that lead us to think this is a piece in the set. It didn’t show up as part of the normal set. Is this a Combo Topper?
|As an obscure choice, the door knob would make a cool chaser.|
|A possible variant? In the Croquet game, Alice’s hedgehog was red. If there is a green hedgehog, there is a decent bet that we will see a red variant.|
|Another possible variant. The new mold is supposed to help artists pull off some amazing designs… this is their chance to shine. The Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow Pirates figure looks great. A Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter variant or chaser would be spectacular!|
