Eeyore
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977)
Maria Clapsis

Wonderfully sad rainy day look. The only thing that could make this better is a detachable tail! No tail variant?

Basil of Baker Street
The Great Mouse Detective (1986)
Mike Sullivan

A great addition to the Animation lineup and a perfect facial expression.

Ludwig von Drake
An Adventure in Color (1961)
Thomas Scott

I’ve been waiting for this guy to show up! I am constantly amazed at how the artists can make different Vinylmation look like different periods of animation.

Stitch
Lilo and Stitch (2002)
Ron Cohee

This is why Ron Cohee is the best character artist Vinylmation has right now. He innovates. He is not afraid to put it all out there. Not only the best vinyl Stitch, but the only one that truly looks like him to date.

Ace of Clubs
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Thomas Scott

Maybe a holdover from the Alice set? Wonderful artwork and the brush accessory works so very well. 

Pascal
 Tangled (2010)
Monty Maldovan

Rapunzel never went on any adventure without her chameleon friend. This would make a great variant!

Panchito Pistoles
 Three Caballeros (1944)
Casey Jones

Jose last time… Donald in A4?

Mowgli
 The Jungle Book (1967)
Casey Jones

I like the continuation of characters from the same movie. We got Baloo last time. King Louis would be a great one for A4. Love the art on the ears!

Grumpy
 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Ron Cohee

Dopey was in the last set… do we see trend here? What a great face!!!

Robin Hood
 Robin Hood (1973)
Adrianne Draude

Not much else to say but perfect representation.

Perdita
 101 Dalmatians (1961)
Caley Hicks

Now you can put this one next to your Park 2 Pongo Chaser.

Mystery Chaser
Stabbington Brothers
LE Combo
 Tangled (2010)
Release Date: May 24, 2013

I can’t enough Tangled and these faces are perfectly drawn on the canvas.

Tod and Copper
LE Combo
 The Fox and the Hound (1981)
Release Date: May 10, 2013

Nice art style with these. Love the leaves in the ears.
