      The Official Disney Park blog updates with some news about the highly-anticipated Star Wars Series #1 of their Vinylmation urban vinyl toy line. Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager, writes about the new line of Vinylmation figures and gives a closer look at three of the figures -- Boba Fett, C-3PO and R2-D2.



      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.

      I'm disappointed to see no new Force awakens figures at Comic-Con

      Really Maz Kanata's, Resistance base, KanjiKlub, Ballir Tigg, beasts, large droids, Leia General, Luke, some other vehicles.

      I agree. It just goes to show her popularity among the fans. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Jaina-like character in a future stand-alone movie. Would

      Star Trek Beyond: the one where Kirk wears a leg holster and Star Lord's costume

      Saw Star Trek Beyond. This film felt more like Star Trek than either of the previous two. Not a perfect film, but I enjoyed it.

      I think it puts both companies in a tough spot; she isn't "real" in the new canon anymore, but that doesn't mean she can't exist in toy form

      That was LAST year's movie; no one collects old stuff.

      But I was disappointed (but sadly, not surprised) about that, too.

      The last SW figure I bought for myself was Mosep. It was insulting how he compared to the Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo I got about the same time.
