9″ Holiday 3 Explained


Update: 5/23/12 Release date and price on 9″ Colonial figure. It will hit D-Streets on May 25.


Update: 9/13/11 We found out the entire line up on 9″ Holiday 3 figures on a poster on display at The Florida Project.

This series of Vinylmation are the first that will be released in the new 9″ mold. First on display at D23 in August.

 

DraculaArtist: Maria Clapsis

LE: TBA

Price: TBA

Release Date: September 14, 2012

An evil looking face and great detail on the shirt with the bats and the pocket watch. It captures Dracula well, but I’m spoiled by customs that add things like real capes.

 

ColonialArtist: Casey Jones

LE: 600

Price: $44.95

Release Date: May 25, 2012A very Patriotic figure, I’m drawn to this one as I am to the Patriot from Holiday 2. He has nice definition in his face and it for sure looks like he will have an accessory hat. I may have to grab this one if the price is in the 40’s.

 

Easter EggPrice: $44.95

Release Date: April 2012A colorful egg design with a chick peaking out of the crack in the head. It’s a solid design, but doesn’t appeal to me. I do like the idea and placement of design elements.

 

Chocolate Birthday CakeArtist: TBA

LE: TBA

Price: TBA

Release Date: TBAIdentical in every way except color to the 9″ Holiday 2 figure by Tyler Dumas. Not a bad design. Its fun but the earlier figure had a small production issue. It was layered with stickers for the pattern and they overlapped, misaligned and shown through each other in parts distracting from the overall figure. Hope they fixed that in this release.

 

Be My ValentineArtist: Lisa Badeen

LE: 1000

Price: $44.95

Release Date: 1/21/12

 

Thanksgiving Diner Aftermath

Artist: Mike Sullivan

LE: 600

$44.95

Release Date: November 2011Wow! All ready for a nap. I have to say, I love this design. It’s kind of gross, but very cool looking.

Note his right arm. It looks a bit odd, almost like another left, but not sure if it is or not. If not, the new 9″ mold has two different right arms… one to hold accessories and one like this. (see below)

 

Nutcracker Suite 9″/3″ comboArtist: Maria Clapsis

LE: 1200 -11/18 (D23 said 1000)

$74.95

Release Date: November 18th, 2011 OnlineThis is the Rat King from the Nutcracker. The new 9″ mold, like the 3″, allows for easier holding of accessories. Here is a look around his head:

 

 

Nutcracker Suite 9″/3″ comboArtist: Maria Clapsis

LE: 1200 -11/18 (D23 said 1000)

$74.95

Release Date: November 18th, 2011 OnlineThe Nutcracker is the 3″ figure in this combo. Here, the shape of the head neck to body area of the new 3″ mold really pays off for the shape of the mouth.

The Aftermath just needs to go away.

Now, the Nutcracker Suite 9″/3″? That set looks Ah-Mazing.

Finally, Brad B., just say it and get it over with. :P

FYI. The rat king in the nutcracker has three heads. That is why there are three faces on the figure.

A question to anyone who has a new mold 9″. Is it shorter than the old one. It looks like it’s squashed down.

Is t just me, or does the 9″ Alice look like an enlarged version of the Animation 1…not a fan. And I think the Chesire Cat looks like a mangy stray cat. The only gem of these is the Walrus and the Carpenter 2 set. Not impressed.

The cheshire cats don’t have their tails. How lame is that? Maybe it’s just the prototypes and final versions will.

Just to pint out, the original bday cake was on the old mold 9″ and thi appears to be on the new mold. So I think that most of the production issues whilst have been fixed by now.

Did these not do well at all or something? I just got the Valentines one from Character Premier today, and saw the egg one there as well. It’s crazy that the egg one is there, at $14.99, and yet they’ve still got it on the website for $54.95.

I’d be really peeeeeved if I paid full price, only to see it at the outlet.
