I am looking forward to picking up some of the Star Wars figures next month.
is that a DVC one I see???? And did you get the red monorail when they were first released or did you go to Ebay for it?

Sorry for the random questions!

That is the DVC vinylmation and the red monorail, both were bought on Disney property. Looking forward to my next trip to pick up some more.

Very cool! I had forgotten about the DVC vinyls being released. I need to pay more attention!

I just get the ones that I find interesting and the kids help me trade but we've managed to build up a rather large 'collection' of them in less than a year. They are my 'hidden mickeys' (that's what the kids call them) though since they are so pricey.

I counted mine and currently have 151 of the 3" vinyls. Sixteen more are set to arrive by the end of next week. I may have a problem....

Todd: WOW! that's a lot of vinylmation, let's see them.
How does everyone display there vinylmations? Mine are on 2 shelves in my downstairs bathroom (DW has a strict policy on how much Disney stuff I can display and where).

Here are how mine are displayed:

Close up view






and how it looks in the room

great pics Joe! I just have mine on top of short bookcases in my room. The kids like to arrange them all constantly so I don't have a 'display' setup. I'm thinking I should get shelves and get my actual knickknacks up off the bookcases and then there would be plenty of room for the vinyls.

Thankfully my DH is just as much a Disney nut as me. Our room is 'decorated' in Disney and Star Wars.

I'm so jealous of some of your park 1s (ok, mainly Figment and the Sorcerer Hat one..the more I see that one the more I think it's really cool!)!!! When vinylmation first came out we were in NYC and stopped at the World of Disney store. I vaguely remember seeing signs all over the store/in the windows for it but I had no clue at the time what it was. Still kind of bummed I didn't get any of them.

Figment is one of my favorites. I am only missing the Bad Apple and Disneyland Mystery from the Parks 1 group. Usually I have the urge to have a complete set, but I don't want to pay what people are asking on Ebay, so I just get them from the Disney parks and the Disney shopping site.

Mine are displayed at work and on a bookshelf. They make me so happy! Especially my Mr. Incredible Mickey--- he's my favorite! My kids have a bunch scattered about their rooms as well. My youngest son started collecting with Park 1 so he used to PLAY with them. EEK! His monorail has scuffs from when he was throwing it around waiting in line at WDW. He still loves it-- and I won't think about the depreciation!

I had the shelves for a while. I think I got them at Target, I believe Michaels has shelves like this also.

Does anyone know if the Flag series is blind or open boxed? And do you suppose they are also available (or will be) at the pavilions around World Showcase?

I too have a problem. I made the mistake of counting mine a few weeks ago and I'm up to 200 3" & 9", more technically because I was counting sets as 1 unit.
