I'm so excited! I got my hands on a handful of the Star Wars Series 5 Vinylmations as well as a boxed set that were released at Star Wars Weekends. As soon as I receive them in the mail, I'll be sharing those with you. But in the mean time, I thought it'd be fun to film my mom and sister opening their boxes! Oh, and just a little fyi... We are a little crazy when opening Vinylmations!

It's crazy how you'll find something you absolutely love just by a simple re-tweet from someone you follow on Twitter. That's exactly how I discovered The Man and the Mouse, an artist who shares his love of Disney and Star Wars by creating simplistic and eye-catching art that is too cute to resist. His business began in 2014 with a pixelated Mickey Mouse sticker which he left around the parks at Walt Disney World. Obviously, people loved this thrilling adventure of finding a special and unique treasure! From there he started making new sticker designs and selling them for very affordable price in his shop.
I recently received my order of BB-8 and Starfighter stickers (each one is $2.50 for 2!) and couldn't be more in love with them! As a surprise, MM also included two of his original pixelated Mickey Mouse stickers! The whole process of ordering and receiving my stickers was wonderful and I couldn't be more happy with my experience.
Be sure to visit The Man and the Mouse and bookmark the website as new stickers (and occasionally patches) are added here and there!

One of the things that I wish had been at Star Wars Celebration were Vinylmations! I'm a huge collector of these figurines and some of my favorites are, of course, the Star Wars series! There have been some amazing Vinylmation releases at Star Wars Weekends which started last weekend including Series 5 (pictured above), the X-Wing Pilot Eachez (where you can either pull Biggs or Jek) and next weekend the Death Star 9" & Death Star Trooper 3" set will be released. Vinylmation World has a complete schedule along with more photos and prices here if you're interested. One of the things I specifically wanted to point out are the 2-packs that are being released on different weekends. They are limited edition and retail for $29.95 each. Let's take a look shall we?
The first set being released May 22nd is Luke and Han at the end of A New Hope. Aren't they fantastic? I flipped out over this set and found someone to pick it up for me! I love Han's smirk, Luke's iconic yellow jacket and their medals.
Although it has not been confirmed yet, this set featuring the GONK droid and Jawa is suspected to be released on June 4th. I think it's cute but it's not one I HAVE to have. I prefer the set that was released last year that came with a Jawa and R5-D4.
Also not yet confirmed, this set featuring Chopper and Zeb is suspected to be released on June 12th. I've shared with my mom and husband many times how awesome it would be if they made Vinylmations that weren't OT related. We are on Series 5 and they still have not made any from the PT or cartoons. But now with this special Rebels set I do have hope for future Star Wars Vinylmations! I'm still very shocked that this set is real!
Are you planning on purchasing any of these?

A member of the Vinylmation Exchange Lounge on Facebook shared with us this morning news of four new Christmas Itty Bittys coming to Hallmark on October 1st! There will also be three The Force Awakens Itty Bittys available on November 30th! I can't wait to see which characters they chose. Dare I hope for a BB-8?
This is an 8x10 digital print that I created last week. I've had ideas for Star Wars art and merch (which I'm currently working on) in my head for a while and am finally beginning to make some of them! You can download this one for $2.99 in my Etsy Shop. Let me know what you think!
