So the red carpet is out, the audience is seated, the voting is done, and it’s time to learn who won the first Semi-Annual Class of the Kingdom Awards. But before we get to the winners, wanted to share my personal favorites from the past 6 months.
9″–Hyacinth Hippo–This 9″ vinyl embodies what makes Vinylmations great. A classic love-able character drawn perfectly on the 9″ mold. The ears, the tutu, the big belly, what’s not to love.
9″ Combo–Pete and Elliott–More classic characters making a flawless transition to the Mickey mold. The facial expressions get me the most. The smirk, the smile, everything makes me think of this underrated classic. But what I love the most is that they included the Tic Tac Toe board on Pete’s belly. Great attention to detail!
9″ City Exclusive–San Francisco Bridge– The blending together of night and day is beautiful. Who knew landscape art and Vinylmations would work out so well together?
Now to the awards…..
