Limited Edition Mission Park Medallions
- Mar. 5, 2010 -
s movie producer Chip Perro grew up with media that had a direct connection to an action figure, plush toy or some kind of collectable. In his early years when visiting Disney World, his favorite part of the rides were the magical theme stores at the end of each attraction, and he never missed an opportunity to purchase at least one memento. “It’
s your chance to take home part of the magic,” says Perro. And that magic is exactly what Perro is offering followers of the Mission Park superhero saga. The antiqued Mission Park Medallions are certified membership medallions, and only 1000 have been minted. Five medallions were pressed for the Mission Park superhero team: Tessa Faux, Apple Orchard, Chris Ember, Timothy Note and Victor Strength, and the remaining 995 medallions from that original batch are available as limited edition collectables. There are also plans for individual character medallions and a special collector’s storage case for showcasing the six-piece medallion set.
Perro designed the medallions to specifically be collector’s items, and planned a limited pressing of the coins to emphasize their unique place in the Mission Park mythology. The medallions can be ordered through the Mission Park movie website at www.missionparkmovie.com, and each medallion will be delivered with an official certificate of authenticity. These collectables are also a connection for the first 995 fans who discover the Mission Park movie online, and want to create a bond with the Mission Park superheroes. Owners of the limited edition coins will have access to special Mission Park offers. The first special this year will be at the Chicago Comic Con in April, where medallion owners can present their memento, and receive five autographed Mission Park comic pages for free.
