Disney Product Developers Holli McHugh and Donald Ferro have teamed up with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante to create an epic new vinyl – “Vinylmation.” These new collectible figures, based on the character Mickey Mouse, take on different looks, styles and characters.
Inspired by Walt Disney’s “Fantasia” at a young age, Benante became hooked on creating art in all forms. Besides his drumming skills, Benante has been instrumental in the creation and development of the art and graphic designs seen on numerous band album covers, t-shirts and more.
There are nine music inspired 9″ Vinylmation figures. Benante has wound gauze-like material reminiscent of sheet music around the Vinylmation, from head to toe, creating an almost mummified appearance. Check out Benante’s Vinylmation figures and get to meet the man himself, on D Street in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort on October 23rd from 5PM-8PM.
