Disneys most lovable mascots in miniature form08 April, 2012 by Chad
Over this weekend, local toy designer and manufacturer Play Imaginative is holding a launch event for the new series of Disney’s Mini Figure World featuring popular characters from the later studio’s many animations. We donned out best clothes from Disneyland and dropped by Suntec City Mall where the Disney Mini Figure World Launch Event is being held.
We’ve seen Play Imaginative a number of times at popular exhibitions like the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention and have their own permanent store at the youth-centric *SCAPE building in Orchard Road Singapore. This time they’re presenting a new line of figures and other Walt Disney exclusives.
Most immediately eye catching is this giant Mickey Mouse x Pinocchio at the front of the event space. Surprisingly, the 70cm tall fiber glass figure is actually available for pre-order here.
All 25 of the Mini Figure World figures are on display. On close inspection, each is well made and will be loved by collectors. The alternate vintage Mickey in his classic black and white colors is a limited collectors item exclusive to the event only.
All of the other figures were available for sale on the spot. Also for sale were toys from the Mickey Mouse Vinyl Art series that Play Imaginative launched last year.
While not for sale, various custom Vinyl Art Mickeys were displayed here today. We’ve last seen these at STGCC 2011 and were rather intrigued by them. The collection of custom Mickeys have grown quite a bit since then.
More than 100 of these custom figures are being showcased. The figures were customized by artists from all around the world. Most were quite nicely done and the show of creativity made for a rather interesting display. As a world renown icon, the custom Mickeys managed to attract the attention of many passersby, who stopped to take a detailed look and snap up some photographs.
Like others, we spent quite a lengthy time looking through the various customized models. It even inspired Yan enough to grab a blank Mickey of his own. Hopefully we’ll get to see his attempt soon!
