Backside of Vinyls - August
For this month's edition of The Backside of Vinyls, I'm taking a look at the back of the August Vinylmation from the 2013 Poster Art Series. The front and back of this figure is absolutely jammed packed with detail! It's an extremely impressive piece of artwork from artists Maria Clapsis and Jonathan Bishop.
This Vinylmation mixes details from both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, with the back of the figure primarily covering Disneyland. On the back of the Sorcerer's Hat, we can see the X-2 Deep Space Shuttle from Mission Space at Epcot taking off, right next to hang gliders flying through the sky from Epcot and California Adventure's Soarin'
On the back of the vinyl's head, we can see Sleeping Beauty's Castle from Disneyland on the left, next to Rocket to the Moon (a former Disneyland attraction) in the middle, with Disneyland's Matterhorn on the right:
Finally, on the back of the body, we can see Disneyland's monorail:
This is one of those prime examples where you miss so much of the figure by keeping it in the box. I love how not a fraction of an inch is wasted on this figure, it's just bursting with intricate design. Join me next time for another look at the backside of Vinylmation!
