Last week we featured a picture of a new vinylmation that someone found in a UK Disney Store. It was labeled as “Magic Around the World” and mentioned future releases in that series. Today the Vinylmation Blog explained it, a bit.
According to the blog, the Disney Store will be celebrating “Magic Around the World” by releasing one new Vinylmation for the next 6 weeks. The first one was this black one, officially released on July 2nd. It is $9.95 or 10 Euros. Right now, it can be found on the France Disney Store Online, but not the US site. It was however found in at least one physical US Disney Store, The Times Square location. The Disney blog points out that the second figure in this series will come out on July 6th. (Which technically means there was two this week.) No word yet on what the second one (or any others) look like. But our friend The Playwright talked to a Cast Member at the Times Square Disney Store and they said:
“there are others in the series that represent cities from around the world like Tokyo and London that will be released soon.”
We talked a little about the black design on the first post. It’s reminiscent of the Holidays Around the World vinyl, only this time the flags are in little mickey head symbols instead of circles. Take a look at the back of the vinyl courtesy of The Playwright.
Also, here is a look at the back of the box with an explanation of sorts for the series.
The Disney blog post didn’t quite clarify the release location of these. Disney Stores? Yes. All or just certain locations? Who knows. They could technically release one of each week in a different country!
What do you think? What do you think will be the other vinyl figures? Just a background change or something else?
