Welcome to a brand new edition of Hits and Misses as members of the Vinylmation Kingdom community share their thoughts on a series and this week we take a look at the Finding Nemo Junior series.

Hits

RogPalmerUK – I am not a huge Junior fan but I am a fan of Finding Nemo, so that’s why a few of these designs do jump out at me for being a little cool, figures like Squirt, Nemo and the Seagull are all great designs but honestly, I’m not picking any of these up, I like the fact they have made the junior series smaller but there are still too many filler figures for me.

 HoneyHits for me is Nemo, Dory, Marvin and the jellyfish. Love the clear body, very clever way of doing fishes. Squirt is also adorable and I love how they’re all done in a simple cartoon style which works on a tiny canvas of 1.5″

Jonathan – I don’t have anything from this series, never really been into the Juniors. But I will say that they got a lot of the characters spot on especially with the limited Space. Dory will always be my fave but my favourite designs are the Seagulls and Bruce. I might get a few of these just because of the characters I like.

Donna – Im surprised there aren’t more of the tank gang. I wish there would have been a Peach or Gil instead of the Anglerfish or even Darla. Maybe they could have used Jacques as the chaser instead of Blenny (or even Mr. Ray). There are enough characters left they can easily make a second set though!

WDWRobertI use to have a cold receptive feel to the Jr. series in the past as I initially thought they were just “too small” and not worth collecting. Though little by little and I have warmed up to them and eventually collected in its entirety the “It’s a Small World” jr. series. Though I probably will not collect this series, I feel that there are a few worth noting.

Dory: Though Dory and several others, have already been done in the 3” format, the jr. versions seem to be a bit more animated/cartoonish and 1 ½” Dory is a perfect example of this. I just love that the “Mickey Head” is the fish and the body is clear blue thus giving the look that the fish is swimming. The plants and bubbles are also a nice touch.

Sheldon & Pearl: Though they are in the film for a short time it was nice to see them added to this series. Sheldon & Pearl vinylmations both share that the same look that Dory has with one exception and that is Sheldon’s body continues onto “Mickeys Body”.

Seagull: This is my favorite of the bunch. I just love the face as it shouts outs the famous “Mine! Mine! Mine!” chant. This guy I will most definitely collect.

Misses

RogPalmerUK – The whole series is one big miss, I’m not planning on picking any of these up because I just don’t collect Juniors and while many collectors are saying they would have preferred them on a 3″ mold, with the Pixar series Nemo & Dory, there isn’t much need for that either.

WDWRobert –  Darla: For one I was not a fan of her in the movie as she was just an absolute menace every second of the movie. Don’t get me wrong she was a much-needed character in the movie as she gave a real threat of certain death to Nemo I just did not like her and how terrible she was! However, she was already a 3” and I think that was enough for me. Bruce: I love the character but did not like the look of Bruce as a jr. because the Jr. looks nothing like the character from the movie. Missing Characters: Where is Gil, Bubbles and Nigel? Maybe there will be a “Nemo Series 2” eventually as there is definitely plenty of characters to create.

 HoneyMy misses are the right 3 from the top row. Bruce could’ve worked with a clear body but instead looks strangely stretched out especially compared to the other fishes.The seahorse and puffer fish suffer from bloated syndrome and they lack a cute appeal.

On May 30, 2003, Disney opened the doors to theaters worldwide and welcomed us to a beautiful underwater world filled with characters that we would cherish forever.  Disney plucked on the strings of our hearts with the tale of unconditional love between a parent and child.  On July 11, 2014, Disney will invite us back to relive those magical moments though the Nemo Vinylmation Jr release.  The question is, will the miniature Vinylmation do our underwater friends justice?

When I first heard about the Finding Nemo Vinylmation release, my inner child jumped for joy and started to do some high speed mental budgeting to make sure that I would have the funds to cover a full case when the time came.  But that joy and excitement died faster than Darla’s pet fish in a plastic bag as soon as I heard it was going to be a Junior set.  Judging by the public outpour of disdain when the Aladdin Vinylmation Jr set released earlier this year, I knew that I wasn’t the only one who dreaded those two letters: J and R.

Despite my disappointment in the Jr announcement, I quickly brightened up when I saw the list of characters being released.  Upon seeing each picture, my thoughts went from, “I’m not going to buy any of these”, to a complete 180 turn with, “Oh wow.  I gotta get that, and that, and that….”  Typically, there are only a few figures from a set that I really want.  With this set, there are only a few figures that I don’t want to get.  Most of the Vinylmations created were of characters that played a memorable part in the movie.  With all the main characters being shown, I can only imagine who the chaser will be.  I’m personally hoping for Gill, the mysterious fish who befriends Nemo in captivity.

As excited as I became after seeing the set list, I also started to wonder if Disney ruined the chance to make a timeless and sought after set by not giving Finding Nemo the 3 inch treatment.  Rarely has a Jr set been considered anyone’s grail or “must have”.  But maybe the Nemo Vinylmation Jr set will break the mold.  Maybe this set will ignite the desire for more Jr’s and have all of us searching eBay for Jr releases of the past.  Only time will tell.  Come July 11th, we will see how the world reacts to seeing our underwater friends in Jr form.

On July 11th, the Finding Nemo Junior series will be released and unlike previous Junior series, this will only have 1 chaser, so we ask the question, what could be the Finding Nemo chaser?

Here are a few of our guesses:
Gill_Figurine

Gill

My first guess at what the Finding Nemo Junior chaser is Gill, this character is very important to the story and with some of the other fishes from the Dentist tank included in this series such as Bloat, this black and white fish would look impressive on the Junior mold.

1000px-Anchor-FN

Anchor

While Bruce the Shark is included in the Finding Nemo Juniors, his buddy Anchor from the “Fish are Friends, Not Food” Group is missing and could be a interesting addition to the series, especially if they decided to adjust the mold slightly to fit a Hammerhead on.  Though we could also see the other Shark from this group, Chum as the chaser.

NigelNigel

Another strong character from the movie could be Nigel the Pelican who helps Nemo escape the dentist and with the Seagulls included in the Junior series, Nigel could easily be a top contender for the Junior chaser.

What do you think could be the Finding Nemo Chaser?
