Un-Masked

Dennis Conroy posted these photos to Vinylmation Exchange today:

They are photos of the upcoming Disney Store Masks Vinylmation series. Each figure comes with that piece over their head as a “mask.” They remove to uncover the character below. However, the character does not match up with the rest of the body. This could be done for comedic effect OR they could be mix and match heads!

Under the surgeon’s mask, looks like the hockey player. Under the hockey mask, looks like the spa lady with cucumbers on the eyes. Under the ninja’s mask, looks like the villain. And under the spa mask, looks like… well, my theory kind of dead ends there. Maybe the surgeon or kabuki guy.

Any way you slice it, this is shaping up to be one of the most forgettable sets ever made. At least in the eyes of Vinylmation collectors. Shoppers at the Disney Store looking to add “fun” merchandise to their carts will probably toss a few blind boxes in. But a quick look at comments around the community make me think not many collectors will.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • How much is Disney paying people to move these out of the stores? They cannot realistically expect collectors to pay hard earned money….can they?

  • So depressing. The store artists have all the talent in the world and every time I think we’ve moved past these sets and onto better stuff like Wild West they come out with more of this. It’s like it’s set up to fail.

  • This set would have been cooler to do it Disney style. Like have Ping on the mask and then when you take off the mask its beautiful Mulan underneath or something like that. I feel like they just dropped the ball on a potentially cool idea
