This coming Friday, Disney are releasing the new Dragon Eachez at Disney parks and online, but it looks like it’s snuck out early in the Magic Kingdom.

Thanks to VK reader Pluchiot for sending in some photos of the figure & packaging confirming the ratio for the golden variant is 1 in 10.

It also confirms this is part of Theme Park Favourites series which had recently seen some re-releases of popular open edition figures.

In a surprise early release, all of the recent re-releases from the Theme Park Favourites series have now gone up on Disneystore.com.  Originally released last month at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, these new open window figures are available for $12.95, they had been pushed back to May 2nd, but now it appears that date was brought forward.  These figures had been released before as different series such as Flags or Nerds and have been redesigned and re-packaged in smaller boxes and under the Theme Park Favourites brand.

These figures include Nerds Stitch, Mickey and Minnie, as well as the USA Flag which have been redesigned on the new Mickey mold while the other figures, Agent P and some older Theme Park Favourites, Princess, Rainbow and Autograph, have just been slightly adjusted.

Welcome to Hits and Misses where members of the Vinylmation Kingdom community share their thoughts on a series and this week we take a look at the Theme Park Favourites series.

theme park faveHits

RogPalmerUK – I only have picked up a single Theme Park Favourite which is the T-Shirt figure as it was really cheap on DS.com and I couldn’t resist while placing an order but this series is a very generic series aimed at casual collectors and theme park guests.  That being said, I like a few of the designs and feel had they thrown them into an Urban series, they could have been very popular.  The Character Mix figure is pretty decent design and I also think the signature figure is perfect reminder of a trip to the park.  Even going against my better judgment, I obtained a Princess figure in a eBay bundle and was really impressed with how the figure had been designed with the shadows of classic Princesses (though I still sold it on!)

 InfinityBrothers – This series in my opinion has a original mix of designs, they are available most of the time due to they are a open-series which can have it’s faults. These vinylmations are good in the fact they are aimed at kids as well as adult collectors, specially with the character signature vinylmation.

 WDWRobert – With only liking a few of the Open Edition Series in general, the “Theme Park Favorites” continued my dislike for them. Now there were a few in this series that I really liked. But what I really don’t understand is why some of the Vinylmations were doing in this series.

Hits: The three Shirt ones were a nice idea. Having different colors choices was a nice touch. The Blue and Red ones were nice color choices however; the Yellow one was my least favorite. Now if they had picked a Green or even a clear one that would have been great! Next up would be the Character Letters one was another identifiable choice for a Theme Park look. This Vinylmation has a real nice color combo, which is a hit for me.

Misses

RogPalmerUK – The whole Theme Park Favourites series is pretty weak in my eyes but its a good series to put it on the shelves in the parks to grab people’s attention but there are some rather boring designs such as the Ying Yang and Rainbow figures which just look so dull.

 InfinityBrothers – These like i said before, are an open series, and to be honest kinda defeats the point of hunting down vinylmations for your collection. This are to be honest, always online to buy, and never seam to stop being sold. I like to collect vinylmations which you don’t often see around.

WDWRobert – Peace Love Mickey. I have just one question. How is this a Theme Park Favorite? What is the link between Theme Park Favorite and this Green thing? Yin Yang: Again what does this have to do with being a Theme park Favorite? This Vinyl has no reason being here. Rainbow: Again a nice Vinyl but why is it here in this series? Autograph: This is a great example of a Theme Park Favorite but the light blue arms and ears don’t work for me. Lastly why are they bringing some of these types back? I passed the 1st time and I will pass the 2nd time as well.

Following the recent news of some classic open window figures being re-released on March 21st, we can now add some more Theme Park favourites to the list of re-released figures as Disney announced today that the Rainbow and Princess figures will also be out on March 21st at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World as well as online through Disneystore.com.

These were previously released as part of the Theme Park Favourites and were open edition which means Disney can re-order more figures as they want.  And while the original figure was on the new mold, they look to have made a few slight tweaks to the design and probably to the box.  The Princess figure now has white writing on the front and both figures look a little brighter on these 360 photos.
