I’m a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion attraction and its always in my top things to do when I visit a Disney theme park and when custom artist Jared Flores emailed some pictures of his latest Haunted Mansion series.  I had to share them with our readers.

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 Haunted Mansion – Mickey & Friends series.

haunted mansionHits

RogPalmerUK – I love this series, I love how Disney have taken one of my favourite attractions and mixed it up with the classic characters to do something amazing.  The detail on some of the figures are amazing, I love the Mickey and Donald Duck the most, these figures are simply fantastic and without doubt some of the best figures of the year.  I also think the Groundskeeper Goofy and Pluto are a nice touch.

 CrystalHits- the toppers. The sinister expression, shadowing, and cast member outfits are outstanding.    Grounds keeper Goofy. I love the accessory and the backside where Pluto is cowering behind him, scared.

Misses

RogPalmerUK – I don’t think there is any figure in this series that is a miss, however I’m not keen on the reveal/conceal concept.  I get blind boxing, I can handle that.  But I don’t like the idea of being forced into buying additional figures that I don’t need.  Instantly if I just brought 4 combo toppers and was lucky enough to get the set of 4 + the combo toppers, I’d still have 2 figures I didn’t want.  It just seems very sneaky of Disney to sell extra figures like this.  I think Combo Toppers are great (even better if they are released on the same day…Boba Fett?) but I think this way of making people buy the figures is right.

 CrystalPete as the opera singer. One, why didn’t they choose a female character? Daisy would have been good. Or even a dopey character like goofy would have made more sense than Pete. Also, the colors are completely different than the other bi-color characters- it is this straight blue and Donald and daisy are more of a green. It makes it seem to not fit in with the set

This Friday, August 8th, Disney will be releasing the Haunted Mansion Mickey and Gang Vinylmation set.  This set arrives a day before the 45th year anniversary of the beloved Haunted Mansion ride at the Disneyland Resort in California.

haunted_mansion_exterior

Introduced on August 9th, 1969, this theme park attraction has become a “must see” for Disney fans visiting the happiest place on earth.  One cannot consider a trip to Disneyland complete without visiting this timeless house of horrors.  Throughout its forty-five year span at Disneyland, this ride has maintained its classic feel while performing modern updates to keep younger Disney fans engaged.

Due to the popularity of this Disneyland attraction, Disney officials made the decision to replicate this haunted mansion at various Disney parks throughout the world including Florida, Tokyo, Paris, and Hong Kong.  In fact, this theme park attraction also spawned the Eddie Murphy classic *cough, cough*, “The Haunted Mansion.”

Traditionally, Haunted Mansion vinylmation sets tend to be very popular. The last haunted mansion box set literally sold out online in minutes. Although this set has the dreaded topper, I still believe that this will sell out quickly.  The combination of Haunted Mansion nostalgia mixed in with traditional Mickey Mouse and friends is a recipe for success.

Looking at the 360 degree previews from www.vinylmation.com, I am most excited for the Mickey and Minnie toppers.  The smug and disinterested look on their faces makes this a definite must have for me.  As a topper, you would think that I would be guaranteed to get both of these vinylmations.  I wish this was true, but as an online shopper, I risk the chance of getting two of the same toppers.  Many people shared this sentiment when the last Star Wars Bobba Fett topper set was sold online.  If only www.disneystore.com would give us the option to choose which topper we wanted.

What do you think?  Will you be up at midnight waiting for this release?  Will this set be one of the sets you chose to get in August or will you save your money for the other 17 billion sets being released this month?  Now if only this set had an Eddie Murphy chaser…..

We found out about the Haunted Mansion – Mickey & Friends series months ago but today, Disney have confirmed some details for the release including full 360 photos of the figures. This series will be similar to the Topiary series with a mixture of combo toppers, offering a blind box underneath and a known topper, in this case either Mickey or Minnie. Which means the other 4 figures will be found in the blind boxes and will be released online through Disneystore.com and at both D-Street’s at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

Here is the official details:

Vinylmation™ Haunted Mansion Mickey and Gang Combo
