Andrew Joustra started this petition to The Walt Disney Company

From 2008 to 2018 Vinylmation figures were highly sought after collectibles at Disney Parks and Stores. This petition calls for the beloved toy line to return.

Not long after their release, Vinylmation's popularity exploded among Disney fans, warranting D-Street stores at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts to be dominated by the collectibles. Figure releases attracted hundreds of fans and their popularity rivaled even the famous Disney pin collectibles. From the initial "Parks" series the line expanded into having figures based on Disney live-action and animated films, Marvel & Star Wars characters, special artist collaborations and much more. 

However, towards the end of that ten year period, Vinylmation's popularity waned. Less sets were released each month and several under-performed in sales. This can be attributed to over-saturation of the figures, causing "collector fatigue." Eventually they were phased out and D-Street stores were done away with.

Presently Funko Pop! vinyl figures are having huge success with the Disney license, I believe that there is still room for the Mickey-shaped Vinylmation figures and the highly sought-after Vinlymation Park Starz collectibles. There are hundreds of Vinylmation designs already, but still a wealth of IP for Disney to draw from for inspiration on these figures. And with less frequent releases, these items will become more in demand and hopefully allow for them to have a lasting presence at Disney parks. 

Specifically, I'd love to see the return of the following: 

  • Park Series - Mickey shaped figures based on characters and attractions form Disney Parks
  • Park Starz - uniquely molded figures based on park-specific characters 
  • Animation/Pixar - numerous animated films have been released since Vinylmation was discontinued including Moana, Onward, Frozen 2, & Ralph Breaks the Internet
  • Marvel/Star Wars - huge back uncatalogued of both properties that can be tapped into for new figures. 

I realize that in the midst of the apocalypse this is a laughably unimportant "change" to ask for, but as something that was a source of joy and entertainment for myself and many others for a number of years, I don't think there's any harm in taking a crack at it.
