Vinylmation Speculation: Park 9 Combo Topper

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

I opened my email the other day, and there was a message from the Scuba Owl:

What do you think the combo topper will be for Park 9? My vote is for this Mickey from the Mission Space gift shop: 

I almost think it would be too awesome for a topper. But then again, the Park 8 topper was fantastic.
– Scuba

Well that certainly got me thinking. The Park Combo Toppers are always Mickey Mouse in various costumes or forms from the Parks or Cartoons. Park 4 was Plane Crazy Mickey. Park 5 had Sorcerer Mickey. The 6th Park series featured Runaway Brain. The 7th series Mickey was all decked out in a tux and bow tie as he was years ago to great guests when WDW opened its gates. In series 8, we saw Mickey in a Rainbow suit he wore in Future World at Epcot. What will the 9th installment of Vinylmation’s marquee series bring us? Remember, the blind boxes come out on July 13 and the combo topper is slated for a July 27 release. Here are some of my thoughts, please leave yours in the comments.

Dream Along with Mickey

How about Mickey from his stage show at the Magic Kingdom? A blue suit and bow tie would look great. And I believe this was one of the first Mickey’s to use the new heads with movable facial features.

Christmas Mickey

This could come in various forms… Santa Mickey or even this Victorian Christmas Mickey found at the Grand Floridian meet and greet.

Halloween Mickey

This colorful Mickey would be absolutely fantastic! The cap and cape alone would make this a must have. With today’s designs, they can pull off all the colors and stripes to make this figure look perfect.

The Band Concert

How about a tribute to the first color cartoon? Not to mention how amazing this figure, done correctly, would look. The amazing hat. The accessory baton. If not here, this must get made eventually. 

Mickey’s Christmas Carol

I guess I have a holiday Mickey leaning here. But this portrayal of Bob Cratchit was classic and deserves to be immortalized in vinyl.

Kingdom Hearts

Let’s go way, way, way out on a limb here. A whole Kingdom Hearts set would be a must have, but a King Mickey as a combo topper would be a start.

  • All things point to Park 9 topper being Mickey as the Brave Little Tailor.
    Although future topper wise I would love a safari Mickey, although the 9″ is fantastic, it’s too pricey for me, and more of an artistic representation. Also love the band leader Mickey idea.

      • Have to say I’d prefer Brave Little Tailor over the previous two toppers. Love the first versions of mickey, and the modern mickey we see today. It was a combination of the strange faces and lack of “ooh I know where that Mickey’s from”, the above listed I know where they’re all from, let’s say the previous two were quite obscure.

  • I’d vote for Conductor mickey since it can representing both the cartoon and the Silly Symphony Swings attraction at DCA.

  • Nice work! I think Penguin’s Brave Little Tailor idea beats mine. That would be sweet, and more of a departure from the Park 8 topper than Mission Space Mickey.

    • :lol: Not my idea. Just alot of news that there would be a Brave Little Tailor topper (now confirmed). In fact it was a while back, so everyone was a bit confused that the topper wasn’t him at the release of Park 7. Probably to do with the switching around of P7 and P9.

  • I love the MNSSHP Mickey! What no Epic Mickey speculation though? Stick a paint brush in his hand and waaa-laa! Maybe when Epic Mickey 2 comes out we will get that — and Oswald in a set!
