Now here’s one Vinylmation series that I know will be popular with even the biggest Disney haters! Coming soon from the House of Mouse is Vinylmation Star Wars Series 1. No release date has been announced, but we do know there will be 11 characters included in Series 1 and a corresponding Vinylmation Star Wars Series 1 pin set. Like most Vinylmation Series, I assume we will eventually learn that Star Wars Series 1 also includes a 12th mystery chase figure.
So far, Disney has only unveiled the artwork for the series’ first 6 figures, which includes Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and a Stormtrooper. I don’t know why, but The Blot had a feeling a series like this would be coming after I first learned of the release of Vinylmation The Muppets Series 1. I’m really hoping this series will also include a matching 9” figure. How great would a giant Darth Vader Mickey be!?!
Each Disney Vinylmation Star Wars Series 1 figure stands 3” tall and retails for $9.95 each. While these are technically “Disney theme park exclusives,” they all seem to show up for sale online at DisneyStore.com. As always, expect more info to come as it becomes available.
