Long time no news, huh? It’s been almost a year since I’ve had something to post in the blog, isn’t that terribly sad? But hopefully this is the start of Round 2 for the Pook-a-Looz series!
Since we’ve heard nothing about the Pook-a-Looz Vinyl Figures since first being announced back in January 2011, (remember this post, first look at the Pook-a-Looz Vinyl Figures?) I decided to inquire with the company and find out if they were still going to be produced. I received a quick answer back from the awesome people at MindStyle who assured me they are still coming out, but just haven’t been released yet. That was mid-2011.
Then today, this photo showed up in the forums at Vinylnation.net, posted by member “JungleCruse”:
From Left to Right: Pluto, Snow White, Pinocchio, New Mickey (looking like the 2011 Hallmark Ornament), Jack Skellington, Mad Hatter, New Pooh and Cheshire Cat.
Still waiting for more details, so I will update this post and the blog as we find out more. But it’s looking like the Pook-a-Looz series has at least one last breath in it. It might be a pipe dream, but hopefully these will do well and we’ll get some new characters as plush!
Are you guys as thrilled as I am? Are you jazzed to collect these Vinyl Figure versions of Pook-a-Looz? Or will nothing be as good as new plush? Let’s hear what you think in the comments below!
