I’ll admit I’m not the biggest fan of Disney’s Vinylmation. I think they’re off model in all the wrong ways. But I understand why people are a fan. They’re certainly coming out with all sorts of creative concepts for the series. For instance, I really love this new Vinylmation Sushi Set with 3” Figures and 2 Juniors that showed up at Disney World recently. Might have to break down and buy this set myself.
The Disney Store just announced another series of Vinyl figures that are much more in line with how I think Disney should be tackling the collector crazy vinyl figure market. Pop! Vinyl Figures (by Funko) take the characters we know and love and adopt them to modern design trends.
What do you think? Is Disney giving street design too much influence over the look and feel of its characters? Or are these just cute and that’s what counts?
