*UPDATED* Thanks to some awesome corrections by our readers (see comments below), I have decided to update my “wish list”.  Thank you and enjoy!

With August more than halfway done and our bank accounts nearly depleted, Disney is hitting us with yet another vinylmation set this Friday.  Disney has already announced 7 of the common characters: Doc, Donald Duck, Fix-It-Felix, Flynn Rider, Mabel, Piglet, and Tuke.  The big question lurking on our minds is, “Who or what will be the chaser?” Here are my thoughts….

Kuzco as a llama from “Emperor’s New Groove”

This movie is one of my favorite lesser known Disney movies.  David Spade’s sarcastic humor fit Emperor Kuzco perfectly.  I’ve seen a bunch of Disney pins with Kuzco, it would be nice to see him as a vinylmation.

Mud Covered Maximus from “Tangled Ever After”

In Animation Series 3, we saw a red Pascal as the variant.  I think it would be cool to see a mud covered Maximus as the chaser for Animation 5.  “Tangled Ever After” was a short film released where Pascal and Maximus went on a chaotic adventure trying to recover Rapunzel’s and Flynn’s wedding rings. At the end of this short film, we see Maximus exhausted and covered in dirt.  This scene would make an awesome vinylmation.

Ray from “Princess and the Frog”

Characters from The Princess and the Frog are surprisingly absent from the Disney vinylmation world. I could be wrong, but  I don’t know of a single The Princess and the Frog vinylmation out there.  If you have not seen this movie, I would highly recommend it.  Hearing Ray sing “Ma Belle Evangeline” was one of the more heartwarming moments of this modern day Disney classic.

Sofia the First

To be honest, the only reason I chose this character as a selection is for my daughter.  Sofia the First is actually a really great cartoon on the Disney channel.  The catchy tunes and parental-like messages that this show conveys makes this a must watch in my household. If a Sofia vinylmation ever came out, my 4 year old would be bouncing off the walls.

Who do you want to see as the Animation 5 chaser?
