What Disney Sidekick did you choose? 
Booster Munchapper!

Why did you choose that sidekick? 
It wasn’t a easy choice but I wanted to choose a character that’s not too obscure but would look cool on a vinyl and I chose to go with Booster Munchapper from the animated series Buzz Lightyear of Star Command. So now Buzz has a sidekick he can roam the universe with!

Favorite Disney Movie? 
So many great films out there but Beauty and the Beast would be considered my favorite Disney movie.

Favorite Disney Theme Park Attraction?
Every time I visit Disneyland I have to always ride Peter Pan’s Flight at least once.

Favorite aspect of working on the Mickey shaped canvas? 
I would have to say that my favorite part when working on a Vinylmation is coming up with designs that best suits the shape.

More info on the Custom Artist Project:


How to purchase: The price of one blind box is $65, including shipping within the US. We’re looking into international shipping right now, but it will probably be another $5-10 if it works out.Paypal is going to be the accepted payment. It is limited to one household per blind box.

What you get: You will get one blind box (yes, I’m actually making boxes) with one of 24 different figures. Some figures come with accessories. You will also get 11 different cards, 1 from each artist.
