Medieval Product Photos Leaked

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

Vinylmation Kingdom, who posted box photos last week, has now posted photos of the actual Midieval Vinylmation Series. This series is rumored to be released at Disney Stores and online on September 16.

As interesting as molded accessory pieces such as this dragon’s spikes and tails are, they take us way too far away from Disney Vinylmation. Again, great artwork by the Disney Store artists, but just let them make the themed action figures they seem to want to make. The production quality is just never there with the Disney Store product either. I am all on board with Disney appealing to a wide range of audiences and I know that not ever series is for every fan. I am a big proponent of just collecting what you like. But when the product is constantly brought in this direction, it really waters down the hobby’s trade market and the respectability of the Disney Vinylmation name.

I hope that dragon tail means we’re getting a dragon Maleficent in villains 4.

I thought when the new lady took over as Vinylmation boss we had seen the last of these generic series. The only one from this series anyone is going to want is the dragon. The rest of them will all be on sale for $2.99 in six months like the High School Series, the Nursery Rhyme Series, the Myths and Legends Series etc., etc. Maybe they’re thinking these would appeal to the Game of Thrones folks? The red one and the black ones look like rejects from the first Behind the Mask series that got trashed.

Keep in mind that Vinylmation series are designed about a year in advance. These were made before they knew that non-Disney stuff was a bad idea, so the new person in charge has nothing to do with it.

I stopped by my local Disney store yesterday and the staff was actually excited about this series. They said that the figures all have “hidden” Mickeys in their designs, so a new fun concept.

They’ve been putting hidden Mickeys on vinyls since the beginning. Still too non-descript for even Mickey to save. :-)

Going to be good for custom artists
