This Vinylmation series was developed by Mike Sullivan and especially for the Disney Parks. It will not be available for sale via the on-line Disney Theme Park Store or at local Disney Stores. There will be 12 figures total and again, will only be available in the parks and not online.
There will be 2 special release parties for the new series and they will be located at the following:
In Florida, D-Street at Downtown Disney West Side will hold the first ever “midnight release party” at the close of Thursday, January 13 (so technically early Friday morning). As part of the festivities, Mike will be available to autograph figures from 12:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Mike will then book passage on the Millennium Falcon, and travel to D-Street at the Downtown Disney District in California on Sunday, January 16. He will autograph figures from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. D-Street will open at 8:00 a.m. that Sunday morning.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, I’d definitely go check out both events if you are near the area. I’m about 4 hours away from Orlando which is not too far away, but it’s still a long trek for me and I”m not heading to any Disney Parks anytime soon. All I have to say is that I need someone who lives in the Orlando area to buy me some of these. My birthday is coming up next week and this would make a fabulous birthday present. *wink wink. 🙂
