So there you have it, only 3 Vinylmation announced for this event. I think that in and of itself is pretty disappointing. The designs however are generally fantastic. I really like the look of the Minnie and Goofy set. Minnie with her headgear and Goofy with his circus outfit. It all looks colorful and well detailed. Although the Mickey looks fantastic, it is just missing that Wow factor for an event vinyl. I do like the way Ron has styled the retro looking faces. I think the proportions on Minnie and Mickey are some of the best we have seen to date on the new mold. I also love the way Goofy’s snout and eyes are drawn. I think it is a big miss not to have other Disney characters in this set. I’ll be breaking the pins down soon and you will see the great variety there as opposed to the vinyl. Let us know your initial thoughts on the offering for Mickey’s Circus and don’t forget, there will be one more figure, most likely kept secret, that is given out at the event. Please, please, please be a Donald.
