On January 29, there will be a special signing opportunity to meet with Vinylmation artists who have made recent contributions to the collections. Scheduled to appear are Dan Howard (Urban #3), Maria Clapsis (Urban #3, Wall*E/Eve set) and Randy Noble (Cinderella 60th Anniversary). The event takes place from 5 pm – 7 pm at the Art of Disney at the Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Some more news from the official Vinylmation blog which first reports that the Cinderella 60th anniversary special edition vinylmation which we told you about here will be released at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts on January 15.
Then, a week later, on January 22, the collector set featuring Disney/Pixar’s Wall*E and Eve will be released at both resorts on January 22 and is limited to an edition size of 500. The blog promises to have additional information as well as artwork of the box they are both packaged in soon.
On its official blog, Disney Vinylmation has introduced three new Vinylmation special edition figures that will be released at the Walt Disney World resort on January 8 in honor of upcoming 2010 marathon events, each designed by Disney Design Group artist Maria Clapsis.
Pictured from top to bottom are the 3″ Walt Disney World 2010 Marathon figure, the 3″ Walt Disney World 2010 Half Marathon Figure and the 9″ Walt Disney World Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge 2010 figure.
Guests do not need to be marathon participants in order to purchase the special edition Vinylmation figures which will be available at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.
The series will be formally released and available throughout the Disney Parks on Thursday, September 10.
