Vinylmation
 
Has anyone ever heard of these before ?? I heard about them once on the boards & saw them in the parks. They are ADORABLE 3" mickey figurines that u can collect that represent the parks & cruise line. Problem is there's 12 in a series & when u purchase them, you don't know which one you're getting.

I'm addicted. I already purchased 5 ( & they're only $9.95). one of mine is a duplicate.

@ was wondering if anyone else had a duplicate I didn't have & of we could possibly trade! Mine duplicate is the brown & tan snow white mickey. Please let me know. You can PM me or e-mail me at stacy.debruyne@gmail.com

I'm going to try to keep checking the boards but I'm on the internet from my phone. let me know! thank you.

I have seen them. . .They are so adorable. I am going next month, and they are on my must acquire list. If I come up with any dups, I will let you know.

They're addicting!!! You can only get them in the WDW, Downtown Disney & the World of Disney store in NY. i have 5 so far & need the other 7 of my set. what I can't find I'm sure I'll buy on ebay! :wizard:

Can someone post a picture. I would love to see.............:rolleyes:

Why are they selling them that way? When I am paying with my hard earned money I want to know what I am paying for and that it's something I want. Being surprised isn't going to cut it. I won't be buying these.

I had never heard of these until I read your thread. So, I searched the internet. They are sooooooo cute! I have to get one at WDW next week. DS3 loves the Green Aliens from Toy Story. I have to find this one ...

From what I read, it sounds like the surprise pins you can get. Is that true? You don't know which one you get until you purchase it?

We just got back from WDW and I had to buy a couple of Vinylmation figures. :confused3 I didn't get the one we wanted. But, that's the chance you take when buying these.

I got the Dalmation and Ariel/Flounder (He's on the other side.):

I didn't realize until we came home and DS9 pointed it out, the Dalmation is the "secret" character for that series. At first I was going to try and trade them away for a Toy Story Green Alien. However, I think we'll keep what we have for now. DH said I can get a couple more on our trip this fall.

I can't wait! :banana:

It's traditional to the type of toy it is... most notibly, alike to kidrobot. It's really fun not knowing what it is....

You don't need to be such a grouch about it, if you don't like it- don't get it!

$10 isn't a lot to me, especially when these toys are more than that... and I DON'T make a lot of money.

We saw them last week and I purposely didn't go near them for fear I would like them a bit too much! :rotfl:

On our recent trip to WDW, I found them at the World of Disney and Once Upon a Toy in Downtown Disney. Personally, I never saw them in the regular park and resort gift shops. Then again, I could have overlooked them too. With the three kids pulling me in three different directions, I didn't get much time to browse. :dance3:

We got super lucky our first try. We ended up with the HM one:

While looking online, it appears they have a lot of new ones. There was no mermaid or dalmatian while we were there in February. The one's they had were much more abstract - if that makes sense.

These were the ones they had when we went:

Okay, this is one of those threads I wish I had never read!! Wasn't concerned about souviner purchases when we go in August because I'm not into all the Disney memorbilla, but oh my, those vinylmations are tooo cute.
And I can see how they'll be addicting for me.

Definitely have to have one or two, well maybe three.....think I can sneak four without my husband thinking I've gone insane. :)

bradk 06-30-2009 08:12 PM

there have been 3 series/sets so far: park series 1, park series 2 (just released) and urban series 1
