Sometimes you have more news than you have time. So you throw everything into one story and present it that way. Consider this article a sort of “Vinylmation Casserole.”
With word earlier in the week that the Disney Afternoons “Bonkers” set was arriving on September 2, I thought it would be nice to share with you an image that Vinylmation released.
I honestly have no idea about this set. I’ve never seen the show, nor had I ever heard of it until the vinylmation set was discovered in Hong Kong a few months ago. But with all the hysteria surrounding the previous bad experiences with Disney Afternoons releases, I sorta am drawn to this release. Sorta like a moth to a porch light. A deer to headlights, me to a Corona Light… You get the picture. I won’t be buying this set but I will be around to watch the drama that inevitably will follow it.
When Kermit first went on sale last Friday, he sold out quickly online. Fortunately for people who don’t live near the parks, Kermit has not sold as well at D-Street. I guess that explains the awesome news that Disney has sent more Kermit 9 inch vinyls to the Disneystore.com warehouse and the figures will be available on August 19th, the same day that Flat-nosed Gonzo and Camilla are available for purchase. How many are available? I’m not certain. I’ll go on a wild guess and think that at least 100 are available. Hopefully more. 1500 Gonzos are available that day just to be sure.
Have you ever seen something so beautiful but you have no interest in acquiring it? That’s how I feel about this LE of 2000 Black & White set that goes on sale tomorrow. It’s designed by Sarah Matthews and will retail for $99.95 at D-Street locations and online. Look at the following pictures and tell me if you can doubt its beauty?
It is simply one of the best looking sets you will see but I just can’t see me buying it. Consider it a “sacrifice” I have to make to afford the other 345,932 Vinylmation releases that are coming our way in August. Seriously, guys. I don’t have another kidney to sell! If you do purchase this set, contact us with your up close, detailed photos. I would love to see it.
