New runDisney Vinylmations for 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Big thanks to Matt from Vinylmation Kingdom for sending me photos on these great new runDisney vinylmations that are set to be released during the 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend!  The new figure will be released on January 10, 2013 and will retail for $12.95.  It is not clear if it will be available at the Health & Fitness Expo, but I sure hope it will be!

Mickey is wearing a 2013 bib on the front and there is a space on the back to add your finishing time, which I think is a really nice touch.  Beats standing in line after the race to get your medal engraved!  Not sure about the expression on his face…he looks a bit confused.  Maybe his knee is bothering him after running the marathon…  😉

The best part about this new vinyl are the accessories.  For an additional $1.95, you can purchase a mini finishers medal to put around Mickey’s neck for your respective race!  How cool is that?!?!

Mini Medals!

And as an added bonus, the artist Maria Clapsis (also the artist behind the Star Wars vinylmation series) will be at D-Street in Downtown Disney on January 13th from 5-7 pm to sign your vinyl!  Conveniently, this is during the Cool Down Party taking place that same day in Downtown Disney from 4-10:30 pm!

This new vinyl differs from previous years when each race had their own respective figure.  I like this design much better   and I think this is a great addition to the race weekend collectibles.  I love collecting vinylmations for special events and the addition of the medal makes this even better!  I wonder if they will be making medals for the other runDisney races throughout the year…hmmmmm

So what do you think?  Will you be getting a runDisney vinylmation?

**UPDATE: 1/3/13**  runDisney sent out a tweet this evening confirming that the vinyls will be available at the Health & Fitness Expo starting on January 10th!  Woohoo! 🙂

  1. I hope they do these for the Princess Half! I want one!!

  2. I have been holding myself back from getting any vinylmations (because the last thing I need is something else to collect!), but I don’t think I’ll be able to hold myself back from this one!

  3. Thanks! I run the Vinylmation Kingdom website and I know they will be at ESPN Wide World of Sports for the opening weekend. Hopefully they will be also at the Health Expo. I will talk to my contacts and confirm.

    From what I’m gathering, they are making medals for each of the races but I will confirm as well.

  4. […] now these are the only 3 rings available, but it can be assumed (like the new vinylmation medals) that in the future there will be rings available for all races and that the Coast to Coast ring […]
