'Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love' by Thomas KinkadeAdmittedly we’re a little late to the party, especially since we’ve traditionally been so good at revealing Thomas Kinkade’s newest Disney paintings before he does, but as we always say, if it’s not Baroque, don’t fix it.

Enter the sixth and newest entry to Kinkade’s Disney Dreams collection, Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love.

According to the official description for the painting:

Thomas Kinkade has spent over 700 studio hours on this painting which is the most he has ever spent on any painting (Cinderella and Pinocchio had about 300 hours each).

MINDstyle Offers First Look at ‘Animatronic Donald Duck’ from Epic Mickey

Epic Mickey Animatronic Donald Duck from MINDstyleMINDstyle has been promoting Epic Mickey in a very vague way as of late and with the other merchandising for the game going on, particularly through Hot Topic, it’d be of little shock if MINDstyle were to produce vinyl adult toy collectibles (ATCs) in support of the game. In fact, it might even be more shocking if they weren’t (or at least Medicom which is producing the VCD of Mickey in the collector’s edition of the game).

Enter Animatronic Donald Duck. I’ll be honest, this may not be news, but this is the first time I’ve personally seen any form of these animatronic Disney characters since the initial concept art was leaked. According to the blog entry from MINDstyle:

Vinylmation Previews Celebration Vinylmation/Vinylmation Jr Sets

Vinylmation Celebrations - Graduation (top) and Thank You (bottom)On its official blog, Disney Vinylmation has offered up a preview of an upcoming series first mentioned at its recent Trade City, USA event.

Vinylmation Celebrations offers up multiple occasions to celebrate such as graduation and just saying thank you, as pictured to the left. Each 3″ figure (the larger ones shown) comes in an open-window box so you’ll be able to see which one you’re purchasing, but the accompanying Vinylmation Jr figure (the smaller ones shown) will not be visible within the package so you won’t know which one you’ll get until you purchase the set.

MINDstyle Re-imagines Popular Stitch Vinyl Collectibles by Eric Tan and Jenny Chung

Lilo CosPlay Angel and Lava Stitch from MINDstyleMINDstyle has recently previewed a couple of exciting new Stitch-inspired art toy collectibles (ATCs) by Eric Tan and Jenny Chung inspired by their previous creations.

A smaller version of Jenny Chung’s Lilo CosPlay Experiment 626 figure was available exclusively as a purchase with purchase at the D23 Expo in 2009. Guests who made a qualifying purchase (it was the TRON-painted V.I.N.CENT for myself) were able to purchase up to three of the CosPlay figures for $23 each. To their credit, however, MINDstyle added to each pre-order an additional figure gratis due to some complications with order fulfillment. Now Chung has followed up with a new Lilo CosPlay figure inspired by the Experiment 626 project, this time Lilo is dressed as Stitch’s gal-pal, Angel. Perhaps most remarkable of all, MINDstyle says it will be available at select Disney Store locations this holiday season.
