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.

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.

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.

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. 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!

Jennifer

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.

Where did you see them? They are very tempting. I went in to get one and came out with two.

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:
