      The Official Disney Park blog updates with some news about the highly-anticipated Star Wars Series #1 of their Vinylmation urban vinyl toy line.

      Here's an excerpt of what he had to say
      Star Wars Series #1 arrives at D-Street locations this coming weekend. We have planned two special launch parties for this new series. Before I get to those event details, I spoke with Disney Design Group Artist (and member of the local Jedi Council) Mike Sullivan who gave me an inside look at how this new series was created.

      "We began with several rough sketches of characters we wanted in the series," explained Mike. "We selected characters from The Empire Strikes Back in honor of the film's 30th anniversary. With so many memorable characters in the film, it was difficult to select just 12 figures. We worked closely with the great team at Lucasfilm to make the final choices for this first series."


      "This particular project was exciting and different for me since the characters had to be stylized so much to fit the Vinylmation form," continued Mike. "I particularly like Boba Fett as he's one of my favorite characters. I spent extra time making sure every detail on his figure was just right."




      This Vinylmation series was developed 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.
