What: A ticketed trading event for pins and Vinylmation. The year’s largest pin and Vinylmation event. Guests play games, trade, purchase exclusive merchandise and see upcoming designs. This year the theme is a circus. Does this relate to Storybook Circus opening at the Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland?
The first two days are dedicated to pins with the Vinylmation day taking place on Sunday, September 9 from 9:30am-5:30pm. Admission to the Vinylmation day only is $60 per guest. That does not include EPCOT admission which is required. The Vinylmation day will include trading games, a guest trading area, even specific vinyls for purchase, and event vinyl as a gift, artist signings, upcoming figures on display and a presentation announcing upcoming Vinylmation.
I love the Big Top look… perfect for display.
Dumbo and Jumbo are in a different style box, but it still works. We also have been shown some concept art.
Ron Cohee drew that Ringleader Mickey at last year’s Florida Project and here is a look at the vinyl and stand.
This Caley Hicks 9″ seal was originally supposed to be a 3″ Urban. Here is a look at the reverse and original drawing the figure is based on.
And we have Eric Cazatt’s Lion concept art side by side with the 9″ figure.
