The D Street Store in Downtown Disney has all of these great Vinylmation figures along with special events where the artists come to sign the figures or even draw live so guests can see the works in progress. Donald Ferro, Product Developer of the Vinylmation Mickey figures, said this on the official Vinylmation website:
It's a thrill for our Disney Artists to who see the Vinylmation figure as a blank canvas. Their inspiration comes from everywhere Disney Park icons, urban landscapes and even holidays. There are a variety of figures to collect from 3" limited releases to 9" limited edition figures. For 3" limited releases, there are typically 12 figures per series. Eleven figures are known while the twelfth is called the mystery chaser. Each 3" Vinylmation is packaged in a blind pack which means you won’t know which figure you’re getting until purchased. The 3" figures are sold individually or you can get a whole tray. Buying an entire tray guarantees you the entire set of Vinylmation figures from that collection, and also gives you additional duplicate Vinylmation figures to trade.
If you don’t think Vinylmation is for you, all it takes is one little figurine. Once you open up the foil packet and find your surprise figure, you’ll either be excited or disappointed in the one you got. After that comes the curiosity—what would your next one look like? And so your obsession begins. Pick up a Vinylmation figure the next time you’re in the parks!
