The Mechanical Kingdom, the Steampunk inspired pin collection had received much praise and appreciation. The success of the pin collection has inspired and encouraged the Disney Design Group artist Mike Sullivan to create a limited edition Vinylmation Steampunk set. This new set of Disney merchandise will consist of six figures and is scheduled for an early 2011 launch. There is curiosity about the new set already amongst the enthusiasts.
Along with the new figures Mike has also created a limited edition Vinylmation Steampunk inspired pocket watch. The watch will be sold along with a three inch figure which has been inspired by the watch itself. The company has decided to release only 750 pieces through select outlets in California and Florida. The tentative schedule of the launch has been fixed for December 2010.
Mike explained that he wanted to tell a story through his new six figure set similar to what he had done with his Mechanical Kingdom pin set. The work took him almost a year to complete but the effort has been worthwhile and he is really happy to see the figures come alive. The new merchandise will also include a pin set that will be released at the Sci-Fi Academy event at the Disneyland Resort in the Summer 2011.
