Vinylmation-Frozen-Mystery-Set-WEb

If you are a parent, there is a really good chance that you’ve been singing “Let It Go” for roughly two years.  There is an even better chance that you are possibly “Frozen-ed out” by now.  The movie was released 2 years ago, yet this Disney money train shows no signs of stopping.

We now have the new Frozen Fun located at California Adventures,  plus the newly released Frozen short, and the announcement of new movie Frozen 2. With this extreme popularity and success, many Vinylmation fans were sold the minute they heard a new Frozen Vinylmation set would be released.  Before photos were released, many of us had ambitions of buying a set and collecting all of these impossible to fail Vinylmations.  After all, look at the Anna/Elsa box set.  There is no way this new Vinylmation set could let us down.  It’s gotta be a no brainer.  Then we saw the pictures….6387047711606-1

Once the pictures hit the internet, I was disappointed.  I tried desperately to get excited for this set. I looked at the pictures sideways, upside down, from far away, from up close.  Anything to change my perspective and persuade myself that I truly need this set. No matter what I did, I could not get myself to want this set.

The set consists of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven, Kristoff, Hans, and the Trolls. We now also know that the chaser is Summertime Olaf.  Out of the entire set, I would say that this chaser is my favorite piece.  But that’s not saying much given the competition within the set. When compared to the Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast sets, these Vinylmations just didn’t do this hit movie the justice it deserves.

Of course, this is just one man’s opinion, but it seems like this is the general consensus behind this set.  How do you feel about this set?

There has been lots of excitement over the new Disney Store Vinylmation blind box series based on Frozen and now we know what the figures will look like. We had heard the figures would have a Pop Vinyl/Tsum Tsum look to them, but now thanks to our friends over at Vinylmation World, we know what they look like. This series was designed by Sulam Kang and are due out in Disney Stores on April 6th.

Earlier this weekend, we were informed that the new Frozen Vinylmation blind box series had been delayed until Monday April 6th. This blind box series is a Disney Store release which means it will be online and in selected stores, it also means they will probably also be available the theme parks at a later date, as we have seen with previous releases like Mickey’s Christmas Carol and Cinderella.

Our friends over at Vinylmation World have reported that this will be a 8 piece blind box series, there will be 6 3″ Vinylmations and a chaser, with the final spot being taken up with 3 juniors, which will be the rock trolls, which will be similar to how the Fairies were used in the recent Sleeping Beauty series.

They are also reporting that the series will include, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven, Olaf, Hans, the Trolls (Juniors) and a mystery chaser.

We don’t yet know what the figures look like, but its been reported that they will have a Tsum Tsum/Pop Vinyl feel to them. And we don’t yet know if these are themed on the original movie or the new Frozen Fever short.

Once we have some more information, we will be passing that along to you.

What do you think of the line up?

This morning, we were contacted by a Disney Store Cast Member who has told us that the Frozen Vinylmation series maybe have had its release date pushed back to April from March 16th. The new date that they could be released on, is set to be either Monday the 13th April or Monday 20th April.

Update – Our source has informed us the date is set to be Monday 6th April

Disney Store rarely announce details ahead of time, which is why different Cast Members have been reporting some different dates. And as a Disney Store, release this is why we haven’t seen any previews yet.

This set could also tie in with the new animated short, Frozen Fever, which is shown before the new live action Cinderella movie. Which could be why we haven’t seen any previews yet.

Once we have confirmation, we will share that information.
