So every Friday for the next few weeks Disney will be unveiling new figures in its upcoming Vinylmation blind box series, Park Starz (check out the first 4 figures here). Park Starz takes classic characters from Disney Theme Parks around the world and reinterprets them as unique collectible vinyl figures. The two new figures announced today are a Robot from Horizons, a popular theme park attraction at Epcot which ran from 1983-1999, and Ice Gator, the official mascot of Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park at Walt Disney World.
Created by Disney Design Group artists Thomas Scott and Casey Jones, Park Starz Series 1 includes 11 characters and one “mystery chaser” figure. Unlike previous Vinylmation Series, each of the 12 figures in Park Starz Series 1 will be completely different. Disney Vinylmation Park Starz Series 1 will be released in mid to late October 2011.
