You can almost feel a chill in the air (brrr!) as the date to register for this year’s 13 Reflections of Evil trading event draws near. Whether you are a nefarious evil-doer, a sorcerer of courage, or an imaginative purple dragon, you are sure to enjoy the spellbinding thrills, chills and all-around frightful fun during the 13 Reflections of Evil trading event taking place September 13-15, 2013 in World ShowPlace at Epcot.
A couple weeks ago Disney gave you a sneak peek at some of the pins and Vinylmation debuting at this year’s event. What else can you expect to find? Event logo tees, a baseball hat, D-Tech phone cases, individual pins, jumbo pins, pin sets, original and limited edition artwork, sculptures, Vinylmation (even a few custom pieces), as well as a “lucky” ear hat.
Of course, They couldn’t go on without showing you Disney Design Group Artist Michael Sullivan’s favorite…the storybook pin set.
Vinylmations are one of the most popular Disney collectibles today. These figures had their debut in 2008 and were 3-inch tall molds in the form of Mickey Mouse. Recently, the line has added many other shapes and sizes and the collection has grown to incorporate all aspects of the Disney empire. The figures highlight all the different arms of Disney including films, rides and characters. One of these “arms” of the Disney family, Pixar, has not had many figures in its image as of recently. But, all that is about to change.
Disney has announced a new Vinylmation series that will celebrate exclusively the Pixar studio. Last week, at Mickey’s Circus Vinylmation Showcase that was hosted at Epcot, all the upcoming Vinylmations were showcased.
Disney Store will debut its limited edition Sparky-Saurus vinyl figure, inspired by the upcoming Tim Burton film from Disney, Frankenweenie, in the Funko booth (#4829) at Comic-Con International 2012 in San Diego, California. Inspired by the unique aesthetic of the stop-motion black and white film, Sparky-Saurus is attached to a base that looks like the homemade movie set constructed in a scene from the film. Only 1,000 Sparky-Saurus vinyl figures will be available at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). Also at Comic-Con, a preview of Disney Store’s fall assortment of Frankenweenie merchandise will be on display at Walt Disney Studio’s Art of Frankenweenie booth (#3635).
Disney Store also announced that its new snack food-inspired Vinylmation series, So Tasty, will release at the Funko booth at SDCC. The So Tasty series is the first Disney Store-designed Vinylmation series ever sold at Comic-Con. An extension of the first So Tasty series, which launched at Disney Store in April 2012, the So Tasty Comic-Con series features eight scented vinyl figures that look and smell like everyone’s favorite snack foods. The series features flavors like orange soda, pizza, caramel apple and cotton candy, and two of the eight figures in the series will be released each day, from Thursday to Sunday at the convention. To thank fans, Disney Store will give away limited edition So Tasty-themed paper chef hats throughout Comic-Con weekend (supplies are limited).
