Update 3/2/12 After waking up a bit after my 24 hour visit to WDW and really taking a look at this figure, I have an update on my thoughts, partially in response to Rust’s comment below. Since Park Starz and Furry Friends, I think we have to come to realize that a ton of different vinyl collectible syles will be produced under the Vinylmation name. I have defended the fact that Vinylmation refers to the brand name and not a Mickey mold shape vinyl collectible. Yes, it is true that I said that the removal of Mickey ears means it is no longer Vinylmation, but because of what I described above, my opinion has changed and I no longer hold that to be true. All that being said, I do not think I will add this figure to my personal collection. I would however add an Oswald to my collection if it was in the same or similar shape. Reason being, and for the same reason I didn’t hesitate to add Park Starz, is that it is Disney themed. A figure like this Easter Bunny is not Disney themed and doesn’t have the Mickey ears… so it is so far removed from Disney, you could see this as a vinyl collectible by any other company.

Hopping down the bunny trail… and right into D-Streets… is a new open window limited release 3″ Easter Bunny Vinylmation.

Designed by Casey Jones, this otherwise plain looking bunny, does come with a purple hat and a tail like we’ve never seen before. It looks like a cotton ball bunny tail. Nice job Casey. DLR will see this bunny first, on March 2nd. O-town’s D-Street will have to wait a week later, March 9th, for the happy little fellow. $16.95 is the price tag. Your thoughts on this holiday vinyl?

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • I want to know what you think, Nick. You’ve always said that as soon as they get rid of the Mickey ears, it’s no longer vinylmation.

    Are the rabbit ears a one time thing? Will be get an Oswald out of it?

  • They said at FP they won’t make an accessory with a one time use in mind, they need multiple uses. So I am thinking we will see Oswald and hopefully, hopefully in the Classics series!

    I did ask Thomas Scott at FP and Casey, and Maria and anyone who would listen to make a Oswald vinyl! Thomas replied is that a formal request, I said of coarse.

  • I am surprised that the Disney team didn’t introduce this mold with Oswald as opposed to the Easter Bunny. Hope Oswald or Oswald series is soon to follow. As a bunny, I don’t need this one, but will buy Oswald in a heartbeat!!

  • I am hoping that Oswald will be previewed at tonights trade show as either:

    A single figure pack (like the exclusives)
    An Epic Mickey/Oswald themed series
    Or as part of the Classics series
