D23 is the spot to get a crack at new merch, and even find exclusive items
Whether you are looking for Vinylmations, Tsum Tsum, handbags, or pins, the D23 Expo has it all. There's no way we could cover everything they have available, but we're sure going to try. For now, we're posting things as we see them pop up on social media, but that will all change on Sunday, when Elaine will give you a first hand look at what's available. Here we go...
They have a crazy amount of new vinylmation collections available, which is good news for me. I was starting to get worried that they were being phased out, since the display inside Mouse Gear has shrunk considerably over the last year.
It looks like they are here to stay. They've released collections for Star Wars, Avengers, Aristocats, Toy Story, and even an expo-exclusive mickey Tsum Tsum.
Disney also released some a new Vinylmation Jr. set via The Disney Store this morning, and it's recently been announced that there will be vinyl Pop! figures for the Pumpkin King and Sally.
Follow @vinylmationworld on instagram for all the vinylmation information you could possibly need.

The Tsum Tsum are here to stay as well. I've been noticing a growing assortment available at my local Target, but it looks like this phenomenon has just begun.
Soon, stuffed animal lovers will be able to receive exclusive Tsum Tsum collectibles mailed directly to their doorstep.
I have to say that the fantasia hippo is pretty stinking awesome.
The newest Dooney line features Mickey and Minnie in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle, while the newest Harvey line features the old alphabet tickets.
What's great about the Harvey line is there's a men's wallet. That's a great way for a guy to rock his Disney side. And, you have to know your Disney history to even know what the design is. Good Stuff.

I'm sure this isn't even scratching the surface of what pins will be available, but this is a pretty cool collection of pin sets. There will be some full sets available in frame, but most of these pins will be sold blind.
Maybe I just have baby on my mind, but how cool is that alphabet block pin set?
Odds and Ends
Don't think that's it. There is so much more for the lover of all things Disneyana. They have paintings, and action figures, and statues.
It's one of those things where you can do some dream window shopping, but I don't think anyone leaves without buying something. How can you pass up all this limited availability merchandise?
I'm just hoping Elaine only comes back with a few items, and not the whole store. She's justify it by saying, "Look what I got for Asher," but I don't think our bank account could handle that right now. Although, I would love to have that statuette of Mr. Toad, and the Gracey Manor groundskeeper, and the Harvey wallet, and...
