"Raiders of the Lost Ark" Vinylmation - Indiana Jones Hand

Well before Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, the two companies had a great relationship. Disney Parks were full of Lucasfilm properties, including Star Wars and Indiana Jones, and that’s only become more prominent under the recent deal. The latest Disney/Lucasfilm collaboration is a brand new set of Indiana Jones Vinylmations.

Vinylmations are an exclusive Disney collectible featuring various characters on 3 inch bodies shaped like Mickey Mouse.

The Indy ones were released Friday at the Disney Store and park locations. They are just beyond cool. Check them out below. Read More »
