    The Vinylmation series featuring “Beauty and the Beast” is set for release on June 21 at Disney Parks and the Disney Parks online store.

    Disney artists, Caley Hicks and Maria Clapsis, who designed this beautiful new series talk about their inspiration. “When lead Vinylmation artist Thomas Scott gave us this project, we jumped at the opportunity, as we’ve both loved the film for years,” explained Caley. “Stained glass became a common theme for this series. At first, I knew I wanted to use stained glass-like designs for the packaging. We ended up adding that element to the figures’ ears. This tied the whole collection together from a storytelling perspective.”

    Like previous limited release mystery series, this set contains 11 known figures and one mystery chaser figure. There are some variant figures in the series as well. Guests can purchase this series either as individual mystery boxes or as a complete tray. Maria said the series looks that way because they chose vivid base colors for the figures, which really made the designs pop.

    Caley told me her favorite figure is Philippe the horse.

    “I enjoyed including Philippe as he’s not often featured on merchandise,” continued Caley. “When I was younger, I would always save Philippe’s image as my last page to color in ‘Beauty and the Beast’ coloring books [laughs].”

    While Maria also liked Philippe, the Beast is her favorite character.

    “I think Beast was my favorite character,” said Maria. “When I first saw Glen Keane’s animation for the Beast on the big screen, I knew I wanted to be a Disney artist. I guess you could say the Beast was my inspiration for my career today.”

    If you are in Florida on June 21, you can meet Caley and Maria at D Street in Downtown Disney West Side. They will be signing figures and meeting with fans from 5pm to 7pm. Guests are being encouraged to wear favorite “Beauty and the Beast” attire.

    I am 100% not into the Vinylmation thing, so forgive my stupid question.

    When you buy them, you don't know what they are?? Is this right?

    I emailed the Disney store in the UK and asked them if they were going to be getting this series and they said they didn't know

    Are you able to trade vinylmation in Disney stores does anyone know or is it just at
    WDW?

    Just watched a YouTube show, the guy that does it is a huge collector and was talking about how he is disappointed that it is US release only and he will have to find a way to get it.

    Ugh! It wouldn't be such a problem if it was an open set or you were going yourself. I don't really want to get someone to buy them then I get 6 of the same . Looks like eBay may be the way forward!

    How does it work then, if someone buys them over there and they have duplicates can they take them back and exchange them or is a case of once the box is open that's it?
