San Diego Comic Con is on July 12-15 in California and Disney has announced several Vinylmation releases spread through out the event. According to the Vinylmation blog, they will be available for purchase online. (But we assume they will also be at the event)

July 11

Comic Con Boy and Girl

Two 3″ Combo

LE 2000

$34.95A part of the Comic Con celebration Disney is releasing this two pack set of two kids dressed up in costumes (much like what many of the people who attend the event do). I like the girl’s use of a accessories, both a cape and glasses. Very cool.

The boy is a little more Robin themed. he’s got a mask and a little hat. He’s got the costume and a utility belt (which just happens to hold vinylmation).

This is a great set, although we had hoped this might have been the introduction of Marvel by having the kids dress up as Marvel characters.

LE 2000

$26.95Amazing. Spot on. Perfect use of ears. Grape Soda cap!!!

Park Starz Squid Variant

LE 1954

$24.95We first saw this as part of Thomas Scott’s John Carter vinylmation interview video on 3/7/12. This will be the fourth variant to the Park Starz 1 series, I love the color. Prefect.
