With less than 10 days till the upcoming D23 Expo, we are taking a closer look at the figures being released for the event. We mentioned earlier that Vinylmation, Jr. - Series #4 and The Lion King are being released. But there are other figures such as the logo figure.
The figure will have an edition size of 4,800 and a retail of $13.95. The figure will be presented in an open window box as seen below.
Thomas Scott, one of the lead designers for Vinylmation™, will be attending the D23 Expo. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Thomas and have figures signed.
Thomas will be appearing at the follow times and locations:
Friday, August 19, 2011 - 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. at the Product Showcase and Trading Area
Saturday, August 20, 2011 - 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. at the Product Showcase and Trading Area
Sunday, August 21, 2011 - 12 Noon - 2:00 p.m. at the Product Showcase and Trading Area
In addition to the Vinylmation, Jr. Series making its debut at the Expo, Thomas also created the 3-inch figure featuring Gladstone Gander. This figure has an edition size of 1,200 and a retail of $13.95. It will be presented in a window box with display base.
"For the D23 Expo exclusives, the team decided to feature Disney characters you wouldn't normally see on Disney merchandise and didn't necessarily have a place in other Vinylmation series," explained Thomas. "Eric picked Butch, Casey did black and white Davey Crockett and I chose Gladstone Gander. I thought Glandstone would be a fun and lucky addition to your Vinylmation collection. It is a salute the great Carl Barks' duck comics."
Gladstone made his debut in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories No. 88 in January 1948. He was a cousin of Donald Duck and, as Thomas mentiones, was extremely lucky.
