D23 Expo attendees who have purchased tickets at the sorcerer ($1000) and premiere ($500) package levels are now being invited by email to either outright pre-purchase D23 Expo special merchandise, Dream Store merchandise and other merchandise via Random Selection Process (RSP). For those that are eligible, the sales begin later today.
However, for those who do not qualify for the pre-sales, this is still a valuable opportunity to do some window shopping ahead of the Dream Store opening at the D23 Expo on August 19, 2011. For example, pictured to the left is the official D23 Expo 3″ vinylmation figure designed by Maria Clapsis. It’s limited to an edition size of 4800 pieces and retails for $13.95.
Other merchandise of note includes limited edition pins that contain pieces of banners that hung at the 2009 D23 Expo and one that contains a piece of the Star Tours Starspeeder 3000 mural from Disney’s Hollywood Studios and a special order D23 Expo leather jacket featuring the 2011 D23 Expo logo.
You can view the Dream Store merchandise as well as the merchandise being made available via RSP which includes the theme merchandise by Noah as well as Special Order merchandise, which is not guaranteed to be sold at the Expo.
