    There is something extra special about the Haunted Mansion during the Halloween season at Disney Parks. To celebrate this there is a new release of Vinylmation – Haunted Mansion series #1. This is a limited release, mystery series and has been in development for over a year, and contains a handful of the 999 happy haunts. Disney Design Group artist Casey Jones talks about about how he selected the characters for the series.

    “We knew we couldn’t feature every single character from the attraction,” explained Casey. “So we selected a character from almost each of the different show scenes. This set gives us a strong foundation to build upon for a future Haunted Mansion series.”

    One thing I noticed is that the series contains a lot of accessories. Eight of the figures have some type of accessory item, which Casey explained “helped add the essential touches for each character.”

    This series will also include the Hatbox Ghost and this was designed by Thomas Scott with help from artist Dan Salgo. Thomas said that the packaging was a nod to a different kind of vinyl.

    “We used the cover of the ‘The Story & Song from The Haunted Mansion’ vinyl album as inspiration for the packaging,” said Thomas. “We even used the unique ‘Haunted Mansion’ lettering found on that album as a nice tribute.”

    One of Casey’s favorite figures is the singing bust, as he felt it translated the best to the Mickey Mouse-shaped canvas.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
