From the upcoming Have A Laugh series which highlights classic Disney short, the official Vinylmation blog presents this artwork of the seal in the bathtub from the 1948 classic Mickey and the Seal.

Following the success of its Experiment 626 Project in which artists put their unique spins on Stitch-shaped vinyl figures and the recently announced mini-Stitch figures, MINDstyle announced today that it will be releasing a series of figures based on the alien from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story series. According to the graphic, we can expect the invasion to begin in early summer.
Good news for Disney Vinylmation fans who sometimes get turned off by the blind pack shopping experience. Vinylmation has announced they will soon be releasing an open edition of 3″ Vinylmations in a windowed box titled ‘Big Eyes’ featuring classic Disney characters. As you can see by the photo courtesy of the official blog, the artwork featured on the Mickey Mouse shaped figures is just that.
Something tells us that the Marie from Aristocats as featured in the image will end up being one of the more popular figures.
MINDstyle has announced Series #1 of Stitch Mini-Figure vinyl collectibles. Sharing a lot in common with the Mickey Mouse-shaped Vinylmations from the Disney Design Group, the creator of the Experiment 626 project has transformed the mini vinyl Stitch figures into some of the most beloved Disney characters of all time.
At 3″, each series will consist of 10 figures sold for $9.95 each in a blind pack plus a chaser and a super-chaser. Like Vinylmation, trays of 24 will be available for sale which includes two complete sets of 10 plus the chaser and super-chaser.
