For all you Vinylmation fans out there, the new Monsters University Vinylmation, “Series One”, will be available on June 14, 2013. The series was designed by two artists, Ron Cohee and Thomas Scott and if you happen to be in the Walt Disney World area on June 14, be sure to visit D Street, located in Downtown Disney West Side as Artist, Ron Cohee, will be holding a signing of the new Monsters University Vinylmation figures from 5:00 to 7:00 PM EST.
Below is a photo showing the complete Monsters University set and although the chaser is not shown, there is an obvious OOZMA KAPPA member missing – or should we say two members missing! In one of our previous posts, we showed a photo of the Terri and Terry Perry Vinylmation. Though this chaser isn’t confirmed, we can only assume that the brothers wouldn’t be left out of the series. UPDATED – it has been confirmed that Terri and Terry are the mystery chaser.
The Disney Parks Merchandise site shared a little background information about the artist, Ron Cohee who is a Character Artist with the Disney Design Group, where he creates art used exclusively on products and collectibles at Disney Theme Parks and Resorts. Ron has served in many capacities for the Walt Disney Company over the last nineteen years. After attending the California Institute of the Arts, he enjoyed a decade in the Feature Animation department, working on films such as “Pocahontas”, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, “Mulan” and “Lilo and Stitch”.

Is there a merchandise list for D 23 exclusives yet?…. besides the D 23 Convoy Brothers?
Hey Kevin – We haven't heard anything about specific merchandise for the event yet (other than the Convoy Brothers) – what we've heard so far is \”parks\” related (CarsLand coming to Hollywood Studios in 2018 and things like that). Anyone else hear any other product or Pixar-related rumors for D23 in 2013? Pixar Post – T.J.
