Figured I would start a thread for it. :D

The Clear series came out last week. Urban Series 2 comes out on Friday. Rumor is that the Artist Signing/Release Party is on the 31st. I will be going and will be sure to post pics.


I will also post pics of my collection as soon as I get back home next week.

I didn't care too much for these when I first saw them, but when I was at the park yesterday I saw some I liked. Looked at the website Aerosmith posted and found a couple others I like. I'd love to get the Epcot Icons one. I'm going to look for it when I go back, but I'm sure its long gone.

The thing I dislike the most about these is that you don't know which one you are getting. My luck I'd get the one I dislike the most. I really like the 3" one that is like the beginning of an old Mickey Mouse cartoon. I may go to ebay and get it as well as the Haunted Mansion one from Park series 1. I think it may be cheaper than trying to find them at the parks. Especially since there are some I really dislike, although there are some I wouldn't mind having either.

As for the new ones in those pics I like the white with the old school Disney World logo and I love the Epcot one. It'll go especially nice with the icons one if I can find it.

Aerosmith
09-10-2009, 04:57 PM
I remember seeing Epcot Icons at World of Disney last time I was there. The Haunted Mansion from Park 1 goes for over $30 on eBay now. I still need to get that one too.

The Mickey Mouse Cartoon is great. It has "The End" on his back. :D

Agent0028
09-10-2009, 05:20 PM
That's awesome, I didn't see the back.

Thanks for letting me know the Epcot one is still around. I was supposed to go to Disney on Saturday but it looks like I won't get to. :( How much do the 9" cost? I saw some on ebay and they were 50-60 dollars. The HM ones I saw on there were all in the 50 range.

Aerosmith
09-10-2009, 05:31 PM
$39.95 for the 9" unless it's one with a 3" included those are $74.95.

Agent0028

Not too bad of a markup then. I'll do that if I can't get to the parks or Downtown Disney while they are still around.

Hmm, I hadn't thought about that. I'd feel like a fraud since I'd really only be going to buy something. I suppose that isn't as bad as people going in just to sell stuff though. :lol

Thanks for the suggestion though, I'll contemplate it when I'm ready to buy one.

Thanks for the pics Aerosmith. Did they have a release date for the big Epcot one?

Also, I when I was at the park last week I noticed they had a blank one with a bunch of character signatures. Do you (or anyone else) know if they can sign those while in costume? I think it'd be alot of fun to do that and get my favorite characters sigs on it.

Aerosmith
09-19-2009, 05:40 PM
No certain release date on EPCOT World Showcase. Just a 2010 release date. It is a part of Park Series 4. Better pics and more info from the signing can be found here. http://www.vinylnation.net/whatstocome6.html

I got the D23 Vinylmation (the only one I have) as a momento of D23 just like I got some D23 pins as a momento. However, I am not a collector of vinylmation or pins. I am curious why there is such great interest in the Vinylmation stuff. Personally, I just don't get the whole Vinylmation (or pins for that matter) craze. They are all the same little simple plastic Mickey repainted over and over again. Disney must be making a fortune on these. They are the ultimate repaint to the infinity power. Anyone who collects them and wants to share what the charm of vinylmations is, please tell because I really don't get it. And the whole thing where you have to buy them and you don't even know which one you are buying and you have to buy multiple repeats of common ones to possibly get the rare ones only adds insult to injury! Please explain!

For me not knowing what you are going to get adds to the fun. It's hard to explain why I like them. Even though they are all the same Mickey Mouse sculpt the designs on some of them are great. Seeing how some of the artist use Mickey as a blank canvas is interesting. Plus it's fun to paint up your own.

Disney isn't the first ones to do these. Urban Vinyl is been a big thing thats been going on for awhile now. :)

None of that probably answered your question though. :lol

Agent0028
09-19-2009, 08:03 PM
Like I've said before not knowing which one I'm going to get is a bit of a turn off for me since I'm not collecting them all. However there is a little thrill to it. It's kinda like gambling. Mostly I'm just collecting the ones that have some relationship to the park, but even there I'm very selective.

Also, I hate to admit it, but I have never even heard of the Florida orange bird. :lol

Ive been pretty lucky with the chasers. Ive only bought from Park 2, Urban 2, and Holiday 1 and so far got the chasers for Park 2 and Holiday 1. I actually got 2 chasers from Park 2. Have only gotten 3 doubles altogether.

Surprisingly enough the Star Wars and Muppet vinylmation figures don't interest me at all. The ones I find most appealing are the ones related to the park. Such as the HM wall paper, the upcoming Epcot flag 9" and Epcot Center 3", and the one with the old school Disney World logo, although I don't understand why the rest of it is made like a jigsaw puzzle.

I just bought the WDW old school logo vinylmation on Ebay. I'm really looking forward to the 9" World Showcase and 3" Epcot figures coming out.

I traded for him. Two regular Muppets for him.

There is a non-Vinylmation of Kermit in a tux made by Palisades.

What do you think of the HM vinylmation we've seen so far? I'm not sure that I like them that much.

Aerosmith
03-12-2010, 07:42 PM
I like them. I seen Gus, and the Headless Groom in the book at the Artist Party and they look good too. So does the Clock thats in Park 5. I really hope that the Hatbox Ghost will be the chaser for the Haunted Mansion series. :)

These next designs will be released at the trade City USA event at EPCOT. They will be RSVP(like Shag) for them. The tin is LE 1500(or was it 1900?) w/ a pin. The two pack is LE 750. The 9"/3" set is LE 750 w/ a pin. The mock up they had on display for the 9"/3" set box looked awesome!

The Oh Mickey series was released in Disneyland Paris this weekend. It's a Vinylmation Jr series. What is Vinylmation Jr.? it's a 1.5" Vinylmation packed in with the 3" figure. You can see which 3" design you are buying, but the 1.5" design is a mystery. There are four different 3" designs and six different 1.5" designs.

Agent0028
03-30-2010, 05:46 PM
That's interesting. I don't like that idea very much, I hope its not wide spread.

Any news on when the Epcot World Showcase is coming out? I intend to go to the World late April and again in Early May so I'm hoping I can get it one of those times.

Aerosmith
03-30-2010, 06:17 PM
It comes out this friday along with the Park 4 3" and 9" Festival of the Lion King and 9" Peter Pan's Flight at WDW. Disneyland is getting all that plus the 9" Sulley w/ 3" Boo and 9" Inner Space. WDW will be getting the other two at a later date. No info on the 9" Sci-Fi Dine In or 9" Tiki Room.

Hard to say. It really depends on how popular the design is. Plus factor in its also Spring Break and there is more people at the Parks.

04-05-2010, 06:36 PM
Can you buy individual pieces at D street? It looked in some of the pictures on Vinylnation that they weren't blind boxed behind the counter, but I couldn't see for sure. It'll probably be cheaper than Ebay for the select few figures I want.

Also, that Mr. Toad is pretty awesome. I'll probably pick that up.

Aerosmith
04-07-2010, 04:53 PM
Those are just a display. I have seen a pic that ther is a sign in the case that says not for sale.

I want a Mr. Toad, but im not a passholder and probably wont be because im applying for a job at Disney this summer. So a pass wouldnt do me any good. :lol

The world showcase went fast, I tried World of Disney, The Art Store, Pin Traders, and DStreet and none of them had that one. Now I'm debating whether its worth 60 dollars on EBay...

Aerosmith
04-10-2010, 09:52 PM
Sorry to hear that. Keep checking DisneyStore.com. Its currently sold out, but they havnt tooken it down which useually means they are going to get more in stock.

Agent0028
04-11-2010, 06:42 AM
I wondered about that. I pulled the trigger on the 60 dollar one last night. There were others that were 70 and I'd really be kicking myself if I missed out. Plus I think last time I bought from the Disney Store I had to pay tax and shipping so that would put it pretty close to 60 anyway.

Aerosmith
04-11-2010, 02:38 PM
Glad you got one. I wish I could get a Sulley/Boo for close to retail. They released them unannounced the Saturday before Easter. Which was the day I was going on vacation. They are sold out of them now. If I had know they were being released I would have post poned the trip by a day. :lol

Agent0028
04-11-2010, 03:11 PM
Oh that is bad luck. How much are you willing to pay? I'll keep an eye open for one when I'm searching Ebay for the EPCOT Center one I'm looking for.

I am not really a VM collector (though now that they are getting more Park-specific...who knows) but my buddy bought a case and was awesome enough to GIVE me The Colonel from The Adventurers Club!!! :yess:

My wife and I are huge AC fans. Below is The Colonel residing alongside a memory box I made for my wife a couple of Christmases ago (one of the few non-practical gifts she has embraced). I don't know what kind of money AC merch goes for now but it was getting pretty hefty back then.

How did I not know about this until now????

We actually found out about this yesterday. My g/f was browsing through different Disney forums reading up on our upcoming trip to Disney World next week. She saw these figs and fell in love. Keep in mind that she never ever collected anything before. We browsed to see if there were any local Disney store that sells these little figures. Found one a few minutes away and drove down there. Tell me why the manager is telling me that I can't buy any of the Toy Story one unless I buy the whole tray??? She told me that they only come carded and when she tried to ring them, the SKU was only coming up as $9.95. I was explaining to her how it works, kinda like trading cards. You don't go out and buy the freaking box. The manager wasn't having it and I was getting frustrated. I was determined to get her this freaking set so I bought the whole damn tray. In the end, I finally got my g/f into collecting, watch out now!! haha.

01-01-2011, 09:46 PM
Most of them was behind the counter, so if you don't see them on the shelves check with a CM.

The 40th one's look great. There will be some variants of them you can only get by trading witha CM. There is supposed to be more released for the 40th, but they havn't been shown yet. Hope one is a Walt and Mickey set since Disneyland got Mousketeer exclusives. :D

Release date for Star Wars has been announced!


In even bigger news, it's time to reveal the release date of one of the most aniticipated Vinylmation™ collections of 2011, Star Wars™ #1!

Walt Disney World® Resort
As this series takes its inspiration from a beloved film, we decided to take a cinematic approach with a midnight release at the close of Thursday, January 13 (so technically early Friday morning) at D-Street at Downtown Disney® West Side. As part of the festivities, Disney Design Group Artist and designer of the collection Mike Sullivan will be on hand to sign Vinylmation™ Figures.

Please note: There will be a limit of two trays per Guest and three signed pieces per Guest.

Disneyland® Resort

Disneyland® Resort will be releasing the Star Wars™ #1 collection on January 15 at D-Street.

Hope to see you there!

The Animation series was released today. Blindboxed Dodger, 2 of Quasimodo(which worked out because my mom wanted him) and the Elephants on Parade Chaser. Sucks there is 3 different versions of the chaser though.

Also seen the Star Wars ones on display. Luke and Vader will have lightsaber accessories. :)

I REALLY like the Vinylmation pieces that reference the parks in some way. VERY nice pieces. But $99 for the set is a bit much for me.

I'm looking to possibly snag one of the new Disney/Star Wars crossover statue that premiered at Star Wars Weekends this year which run the same price.

:lol The key to vinylmations is to make sure that you have a very narrow focus and stick to it. The ones having to do with the parks are my favorite, but I require that it also holds some conenction to me. So as much as I love the ticket booklets, I never had those, so no personal connection.

The Star Wars statues are pretty cool. I'll confess to being tempted by them this past Friday.

Yeah, this is one reason I've yet to buy one. I'm just worried about it being a VERY slippery slope.

But the park ones always pique my interest. But the catch of these is what turns me off to buying one - not knowing. If I ever saw one I really wanted, I'd probably just pay extra on eBay.

And I hear you on the ticket books, as they were before my time as well. But I've immersed myself in so much retro Disney park information, they they almost feel like something that does hit home for me.

edit: And that blog just cements my logic. I already saw like 50 that I'd want. I can't allow myself to start!

Looks like Vinylmation is getting a new "platform".

Looks VERY promising!

Disney just might get me hooked on Vinylmation figures after all...
