The limited edition consists of 24 unique pieces, each handpainted, numbered and signed by Noah. Each comes in a custom construction lunchbox and retails for $495 + tax and will be available for sale as soon as the store opens for business.
In conjunction with the grand opening of the new Disney D Street at the Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney on December 15, the Disney Design Group has announced that Disneyland Resort will begin selling both the 3″ editions of the Vinylmation Cutesters Series 1 and Urban Series 3 figures. Dates for the Walt Disney World releases have not yet been announced, but are expected to take place shortly after.
DDG has also announced that the artist release party for the series will be put off until January, when the Urban Series #3 9″ figures are released at both resorts.
The Vinylmation Park Series #3 release party and artist signing will take place November 20 from 5 pm – 7 pm at the Art of Disney store in the Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World. Artists scheduled to be in attendance are Randy Noble, Maria Clapsis, Lisa Badeen, and Quynh Kimball.
With no formal date announced, Disney has shifted the release timeframe of the Vinylmation Cutesters (pictured left) from October until December. When a formal date is announced, we will post it as information becomes available to us.
Every day at the D23 Expo, from approximately 12 pm – 2 pm, attendees are treated to a look at upcoming Vinylmation releases. For Thursday – Saturday, this opportunity includes Vinylmation product developer Donald Ferro. Donald took some time out to show me some of the figures that have never been on display up until now, which you can see below. We also talked about new Vinylmation products such as the 3″ colored blank for those who prefer to begin with a non-white base canvas. Pictured below, the blanks will initially come in red, black, yellow, pink and purple colors with the potential to retire and/or introduce new colors along the way.
You are invited to join Disney artists Randy Noble, Dan Howard, Maria Clapsis and Quynh Kimball as they celebrate the release of Vinylmation Holiday Series on Friday, September 18 at The Art of Disney in the Downtown Disney Marketplace in Walt Disney World from 5 pm – 7 pm.
The series will be formally released and available throughout the Disney Parks on Thursday, September 10.
It’s been a while since we offered an additional list of D23 Expo updates as the news that’s been coming out has been large enough to require its own entries, but we’ve also been accumulating a number of small news items so here they are:
- The photography policy has been updated to prohibit photography/videography during select screenings in addition to the Archives exhibit.
- The autograph policy has been introduced: No personal items from home are allowed. All items to be signed must be acquired/purchased at the event.
Late last month, we gave you a photo report of the last Vinylmation artist release party which featured exclusive looks at some upcoming Vinylmation releases. On display there were several Muppets Vinylmation figures, presumably from Series 1 which is expected to be released at some point in 2010.
Today, we bring you a look at what’s purported to be the complete release of Vinylmation Muppets Series #1.
Update: To see actual photos of the Muppets vinylmation, please see our D23 Expo Vinylmation report here
Last night, Disney held a release party for the Vinylmation Urban Series #2 at The Art of Disney in Downtown Disney’s Marketplace. On hand to celebrate were Disney artists Dan Howard, Lisa Badeen, Lin Shih, Mike Sullivan, Quynh Kimball and Donna Kozatek. Also on display were a number of future Vinylmation releases and our good friend @prd3000 was able to attend and provided us with several amazing photos of the upcoming releases displayed behind glass.
