The Backside of Vinyls - Master Planning

The Master Planning Vinylmation is one of the figures in the Imagineering series that was released at the D23 Expo last year. It shows the original plans for Walt Disney World mapped out on the front and the back side of this vinyl rounds of the figure nicely.

On the back of the head "Project X" is the name given to the plans for Walt Disney World. After the creation of Disneyland, Walt wanted to keep his plans and ideas for Walt Disney World a secret, and so it was known as "Project X". Final phase preliminary plot plan explains what this vinyl is.

The legend on the back of the body also continues to explain the front of the vinyl, showing the monorail, resorts, hotels and residential areas. Moving down to the feet, we  can see a scale of the map. Let's not forget the ears, no space has been wasted on the back of this Vinylmation! The vinyl's right ear shows the grid of the map, while its left ear shows a compass.

This is an extremely detailed and well-rounded Vinylmation figure. Kudos to David Buckley.
