Yup. Definitely still around. They release new figures every now and then and retire the older ones after new ones come out. There's a great website dedicated to vinylmation news @ vinylnation.net. I suggest visiting there if you want to know whats new and what's coming up in the vinylmation realm.
I was wondering...how do they select the artists for these figures? I think it would be a ton of fun to be one of the artists!
I believe that they're well established artists that have worked with Disney before.
However, they do sell blank figures, so if you're an aspiring designer of vinyl toys, you can buy a blank one and design it yourself. Who knows, maybe disney will discover you and hire you for future designs
Are the Vinylmation figures still around? You know, the Mickey figures that are decorated with different designs. Going in October, and I would like to pick one up if they are still around.
It depends on which series you were looking to buy from since there are different series' tha come out until they are sold out. Park 1 and Urban 1 are sold out at the parks. Currently whatevers left of the 3¨ Park 2 is still being sold in the park. But the two main 3¨ series at the park currently are the Urban 2 series and Clear series. I believe the next series to come out will be the Holiday series in September.
LOL long story short the Vinylmation figs are still around. It just depends what series your looking to buy from.
