Robot Vinylmation Invades the Disney Store

The robots are coming! The robots are coming! Today, Disney Store announced the launch of its exclusive Vinylmation Robots series invading Disney Store locations nationwide and DisneyStore.com on Friday July 22nd. Disney Store artists who designed this series found their inspiration in the vintage wind-up robot toys of the 1950s. I love the retro feel of these robot vinylmation figures.

“Disney vinyls are the hottest collectible right now” said John Balen, director of toys for Disney Store North America. “The Vinylmation community keeps challenging us to be more imaginative and creative, and the Vinylmation Robots series is like nothing they’ve ever seen before.

The Disney Store Vinylmation Robots collection includes 12 three-inch vinyl figures ($9.95 each) representing a different robot persona, including Radio-Bot, Tesla-Bot and Love-Bot, to name a few. Also available are three nine-inch limited edition Robots characters — Silly-Bot, Salvage-Bot and Reflector-Bot ($39.95 each).

To promote this new line of Robot Vinyl Disney even came up with backstory for the figures. It’s depicted in this short video:

Nice to see Disney making the effort with this video. It will also be featured in Times Square, which is pretty cool. I think I may be making an effort to add a few of this lovelies to my very small Vinylmation collection. How about you?

    Over on Facebook Matt points out that the figures no longer have the outline of Mickey’s eyes, his nose, or buttons. It makes for a much flatter figure. I hadn’t noticed, so thanks to Matt for pointing that out.

    For me, at least, the change makes the figures more appealing. It’s less of an afront to Mickey Mouse to be so off model when it’s more of a figure that just happens to have Mouse Ears instead of a warped version of Mickey himself.
