The open-box series of TRON: Legacy vinylmation figures are now available online at DisneyStore.com. The 3″ figure collection consists of Clu, Jarvis, Sam Flynn, Quorra, Rinzler, Zuse and two Kevin Flynns, representing both the 1982 original film and the 2010 sequel.
Inspired by two of the figures from the upcoming Urban Series 6 Vinylmation, Disney Design Group will be releasing two unique, limited edition mouse ears at D-Street at the Downtown Disney Districts at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts on March 18, 2011.
Based on a figure designed by artist Doug Strayer, the viking mouse ears will be limited to an edition size of 1,000 pieces.
The gumball machine ears are based on a figure designed by Caley Hicks and will be limited to an edition size of 800 pieces.
Both ears were designed by artist Maria Clapsis and will retail for $49.95.
It’s been eons since the closure of Mickey’s Toontown Fair at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and it will surely be a few days before it’s forgotten — strike that, reverse it. Fortunately Disney Design Group has hearkened back to days of yore at Toontown’s Wiseacre Farms and will soon release its Park Series 5 9″ figure that pays homage to Goofy’s Barnstormer. The figure is set to be released at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts on February 25.
It can also be ordered online.

The Disney Design Group and Disney Store have released a full list of Disney Store locations that either currently sell or will sell Vinylmation products. According to the entry on the Vinylmation blog, all the stores listed will carry Vinylmation items by the end of September 2010, but not all stores will carry all available Vinylmation items. The blog also alludes to the fact that Disney Store will soon be offering its own Vinylmations exclusive to Disney Store, as we first revealed on Twitter when we were told about select stores selling Vinylmation at a Disney Consumer Products event back in June.
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.
In addition to the Annual Passholder exclusive Mr. Toad 3″ Vinylmation figure being released at the Disneyland Resort on August 27, the Toy Story collection will also be making its debut at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World at D-Street in the Downtown Disney district. The Mr. Toad 3″ vinylmation will be available to annual passholders at Walt Disney World on August 29.
On its official blog, Disney Vinylmation has introduced the Steampunk Vinylmation series which will see its debut at some point in 2011. Featured on the blog is artwork by Mike Sullivan as well as the hand-painted sample (pictured left).
The blog also recently announced that the upcoming Animal Kingdom series (name not related to the Walt Disney World theme park) will be open-box.
Plane Crazy Mickey (pictured) by Thomas Scott will come in a combo pack along with a random Park Series #4 figure.
