A new Vinylmation series based on The Haunted Mansion attraction has been in development for over a year, and will finally be released later this month at Disney Parks. This limited release series features several characters from the popular attraction. Asked how he chose which character to use for the series, Disney Design Group artist Casey Jones said:
We knew we couldn’t feature every single character from the attraction. 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 of the unique things about this Vinylmation series is that 8 of the figures come with accessories, which Casey said “helped add the essential touches for each character.”
In celebration of the release of this new series, there will be two different release parties. On Friday, September 21 the collection will be released at D Street in Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World Resort. There, Casey will meet with fans from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and release a one-of-a-kind 9″ Mariner figure he designed.
On Saturday, September 22 Casey will head to D Street at Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort to release the new collection, as well as a one-of-a-kind Bride figure. Additional custom figures will also be released by Javier Soto, John Henselmeier, Julie West and Miss Mindy.
