  • Great Interview guys…. Great to hear Park 12 & 13 are coming at some point…. Shame he couldn’t give us much information on future releases but i understand they like to keep things underwraps…(maybe too much!) Plus a scoop on some more D-tour… looking forward to all the new stuff coming soon in Vinylmation, as he said, it’s changing (like I’ve mentioned myself)..

    As you said, he doesn’t have much to do with the Disney Store team. I know I’d love to hear from them too .

  • Thomas Scott could have been a running back on any great football team because he is so elusive!! It’s good to hear that there are some exciting things ahead for Vinylmation in general. Hopefully, for the better. Would have liked to have heard more info on Park Starz since they were his invention. Sounds like vinylmation is going to explode in many directions. That is a good thing!! As always, a great interview Nick.

  • Great interview with Thomas Scott guys! Looking forward to maybe hearing from Disney Store artists in the future!

  • Great espisode! Awesome interview with Thomas Scott. I can’t wait for the future of Vinylmation. He seemed very excited with what was coming out in future releases. Glad to hear of more Parks series being released. I really hope it includes a Vinylmation representing Splash Mountain. That would be at the top of my list!

  • I have a feeling there will be Marvel Vinyls coming out, call it a hunch. He said he is a Marvel fan and he is excited about future. In the interview it is mentioned it can take anywhere between year and a halve to 3 years for sets to come out. HM for example took a very long time to come out. So maybe there is all the stuff they designed prior or during the Marvel purchase, and small details probably needed to be finalized. Also vinyls that needed to match park celebrations (EX. WDW 40th, CA adventure) or Movie releases (Ex. John Carter, Oz) needed to come out before. Maybe something comes out with Capt. America this year or a Marvel set. I am also hoping to see more stuff like R3, Disney characters but with artistic freedom.

    • Yes, the way they are doing things, it wouldn’t surprise me to see a Marvel set released with a movie.
