Disney has announced a set of Vinylmation based on the upcoming Pixar film Brave. We are not sure the nature of this set (LE, Blind Box, Open Window…) but it does appear it will be released on May 25th along side an artist signing with Ron Cohee on Friday, May 25 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at D-Street Orlando.

We also do not know the set size or the character selection at this point. We can assume it includes the lead heroine Merida (seen above), but little is even known about the rest of the characters to speculate. I visited the Pixar Brave website where there are a ton of screen shots, videos and downloads… as well as character descriptions. A couple options would be Merida’s horse, Angus:
A human and animal 2-pack is a likely option. Or possibly King Fergus:
After seeing the mold modifications to allow for better John Carter figures, that peg leg would be an incredible addition to the Vinylmation universe. This vinyl news comes on the heals of the announcement that the US movie release date has been changed to July 15. If you have not seen it already, here is the trailer for Brave. It seems to keep in the Pixar tradition of a truly beautiful looking film.
