If you have even a slight interest in Vinylmation, I’m sure you know the Robots series is coming this Friday, July 22nd. We brought you the first images of the series a week ago but now we have better shots of each of the vinyls (minus the chaser) and the packaging.
UPDATE: SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM TO SEE THE CHASER
Robots Series Tray
Robots Series Blind Box
Let’s talk about the packaging for a second. If there is anything that the Vinylmation team has mastered, it is the packaging of the new Blind Box series. The colors of the tray and blind box are as vibrant as the vinyls themselves. I really have to commend them for their efforts in this regard.
Now this is an interesting thing to see. Why does this series have cards? We’ve known for years that cards were on their way out. Park Series 6 didn’t have cards as you remember. However, I have seen cards for all the 3 inch figures. Have they reversed their decision? Or is this just a one time thing? I would love to find out!
3 inch Robots Front and Back View
I honestly love this series ore and more each time I see it. The colors scream nostalgia to me and believe me, I’m not old enough to appreciate the 50s wind up robots. I know some people were bummed this series was not filled with Disney related robots but I like the uniqueness of the series.
9 inch Robots
This Oskar Mendez design is named “Reflector Bot” and you can certainly see why!
Marcella Lau created this “Silly Bot” which has a whimsical yet beautiful look.
My personal favorite of all the Robots is this Jim Valeri 9 inch design.
I do not believe we have ever seen such an onslaught of Vinylmation publicity for one series ever. Will this be the new standard for Vinylmation advertising? I don’t believe so or we would be getting a similar onslaught for Urban 7 which hits stores the same day. I feel that the Disney Store sees a good looking series and are hoping to capitalize off of it. I’m glad to see the Disney Store pushing these little guys.
