2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Disney’s The Black Cauldron, and in honor of the animated film’s silver anniversary Disney will be releasing a limited edition The Black Cauldron Vinylmation 2 figure set. The Black Cauldron Disney Vinylmation set includes a 9" figure of the villainous Horned King with a 3" figure of the Horned King’s loveable sidekick Gurgi.
As a little kid, The Blot loved The Black Cauldron. I can still remember seeing it in the theater when it premiered in 1985 and how excited I was afterwards. Little did I know The Black Cauldron’s was the most expensive animated film ever produced (at that point in time), and was considered a box office flop and an embarrassment to Disney’s animation studio…but guess what? I could have cared less. I loved The Black Cauldron then and I still enjoy watching it today!
The Black Cauldron Disney Vinylmation figures can only be purchased as a set at Disney World and Disneyland theme parks. The 9” Horned King Mickey Mouse and 3” Gurgi Mickey Mouse are limited edition and will probably sell out quickly upon release. While the price is currently unknown, Vinylmation sets such as this one typically retail for around $40.
