Update 3/9/12 Thank you everyone here and on Facebook for the comments on these sneak peaks! Looks like the best guess to the mystery women is from Derek… Tomorrowland Space Women (can also do man variant).
3/7/12 The Disney Parks Blog just posted an interview with Disney Design Group and Vinylmation artist Thomas Scott. It was an interview focusing on the new John Carter Vinylmation, but we saw much more around the office than that. We brake it down for you, but the video itself, has great insight and pictures on how Vinylmation are designed. Take a look.
Ok, let’s dive in…
We have some pieces here they wanted us to see, what do you spot? Possible some Urban designs? Also, pink Park Starz Squid. Is this another variant? The stars top hat behind seems to be the Uncle Sam figure we are looking forward to near July 4th. How abut the women in the bubble helmet. This strikes me as a Park figure but I can’t quite place it.
Next up, we have our first real look at the upcoming Popcorn figures. Mickey in the foreground and Goofy in the right corner. Looks like the opposite of my speculation! These are larger than 3″ and even appear larger than Park Starz. Speaking of… are those 2 more Park Starz molds behind Mickey? If so, any character guesses?
Here is another look at Goofy. And then the John Carter vinyls…
Besides the new molds, that we already knew about, It appears Princess Deja has a cape accessory! Where was that for Star Wars?
And here is a closer look at Thark Jeddak Tars Tarkus’s arms.
The video also gave a glimpse into the work environment for Thomas Scott. Maybe showing some of his inspirations and for sure showing off a collection of his own Vinylmation work.
