What's To Come #7

Before we continue to read What's To Come #7, we encourage you to check out What's To Come #6, which includes the announcement on most of 2010's upcoming series. With most of the information revealed last time around, What's To Come #7 will showcase many pictures of some of the series we previously announced.

There has been a lot of concern on the VinylNation forum about Disneyland receiving the Walt Disney World holiday event "exclusives" and many members did not think it was fair that Walt Disney World would not be receiving Disneyland's Ticket Booklet series and Disneyland Posters. We can now confirm that Walt Disney World will receive these two series and the current plans are to offer all series at both resorts. Great news for everybody! However, the I Love NY figure will remain exclusive to WDW and New York's World of Disney store because of a licensing agreement with New York State Tourism.

Speaking of the 9" I Love NY figure. December 31st will be the very last day to purchase this figure. Disney's contract with New York State Tourism ends on this day and all products featuring the "I Love NY" slogan will be removed and no longer be available for purchase.

A few other random notes:

- A dinosaur series is planned, but not many details yet.
- They still have not decided which Passholder Exclusive to release first. Pirates of the Caribbean Parrot will be the third release, but they still need to decide if Mr. Toad or Florida Orange Bird will be the first.
- Mike Sullivan is the artist responsible for all the designs in the Star Wars series. Mike designed Mickey Cartoon from Urban Series #2.
- Chip & Dale and Pluto are in the works for an upcoming series.

Various pictures from the Artist Signing

Steven Miller passed around a yellow 9" blank for everyone to sign.
They said they would like to start doing this at all the Vinylmation events.

Steven also led the trading activity where guests traded in their 3" figure, picked a number, and got to keep the figure behind the door they chose.
