We had even wondering if we would see a new release this week and thanks to Downtown Disney’s Official Twitter account (@wdwdowntown), we now know that the brand new D-Tour Series 2 will be released at D-Street at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. We also expect this series to be available online through Disneystore.com.

This series was shown off at the Imagination Gala last month and features 8 figures (7 commons and a chaser), all featuring a Urban style Mickey or Minnie.

Here is the official info from Twitter:

Vinylmation artist Thomas Scott recently appeared on the Destination Vinylmation Podcast where he discussed a number of things including the up and coming Urban Redux series which will be using a new case layout and he also confirmed that there will be a chaser for this set along with variants.

He also talked about himself and how get got into Disney and Vinylmation, his interests outside of Vinylmation such as Comic Books and bands but there was a few things he mentioned that are related to Vinylmation:

His work on the Fantasia sets, Alice in Wonderland, Urban Redux, Cutesters en Vogue, 2013 and other series are discussed with   Thomas also explaining how lots of designs from the early days of Vinylmation are coming out in the future and how there can be well over 18 months between talking about a new series before its released and some sets took 2 to 3 years to come out.

Thomas Scott said there is lots of different things coming in the future and that its evolving as Vinylmation has gone in a different direction than originally planned.

But the big news from this interview is that he confirmed that Park 12 and 13 are coming soon.

Other new releases discussed included D-Tour, which are set to return in a different fashion, (could this be new mini blind box series?).

Be sure to check out the great interview yourself over at Destination Vinylmation as Thomas Scott discusses many more things I’ve not mentioned above.  (Click here for the Podcast)

Thomas Scott also tweeted via Twitter (@Eyenoise) over the weekend:

What are you looking forward to seeing?
