thanks!
I'm planning a trip to the Disney Store today so if I see them I will let you know. I know it says available in certain stores so I'm not sure. I am planning on getting them though!

They're not out until September and they're being released 1 per week so you won't see them in the stores. There are 142 stores in the US that will get the dolls.

If you read what I'd quoted you'd see I wasn't referring to the dolls but rather to the nail polish and yes, that is supposed to be in select stores along with the lip gloss. I could swear the blog I read said those items were out but I may have been mistaken, either way I'll be checking at our Disney Store. I didn't make it last night so I'm planning on going tonight.

Respectfully, as a former TDS CM, you are not aware of all the current rules. They have evolved over the years. This is NOT ok, and TDS CMs are not allowed to do this and that is all I will say.

On a positive note, I hope the sale of the Villians collection goes smoothly, and that the guests that want them can get them without resorting to Ebay.

I tried to get the pre sale collection online and it sold out very quickly.

Now have to try to get them one at a time again. I'm not hopeful I'll be able to nab them all at retail price and I can't afford to pay an arm and a leg on ebay to get them.

Last time, with the princesses, it was different. The price was lower, the numbers of the editions varied, etc.

And last time, you had doll collectors, Ebayers, and even guests buying them for KIDS, as collectibles, all competing.

This time, I think the higher price, larger editions, new rules (one per person), and the new release procedure (which makes it much harder for the Ebayers) I think it will be ok. And how many grandmas will be buying Villians dolls for their grandkids, like they did with the princesses?

So, hopefully it will go smoothly!

Just talked to a friend who works at a DS they got 21 of each doll. They are allowed to purchase them for themselves but they too are part of a lottery just like the general public. I only want the Evil Queen. Maleficent is my fav Villain along with Ursula but not wild about the doll versions so much.

So I found this online through the Disney blog while trying to find the release dates of all the dolls.

Does this mean that if you show up at the store, fill out a voucher they will randomly choose who gets a doll? It doesn't matter how early you get there and wait in line? That sounds much better then trying to get to a store at the crack of dawn, which I can't do because I have to put my daughter on the bus in the morning. Maybe this way I can actually TRY to get to the store on Monday.

Has anyone heard what time they might go on sale online on Tuesdays?

http://aimg.disneystore.com/content/...Store_List.pdf

Quote:
Limited to just 13,000 of each doll worldwide, the Disney Villains Designer Collection will be released, one per week, in stores on Mondays beginning September 10 and online on Tuesdays beginning September 11.
Because we anticipate a devilishly high demand for the Disney Villains Designer Collection dolls, each participating Disney Store location will select Guests at random who will be able to purchase a doll.
Here’s how it will work:
· Each Monday beginning September 10, 2012 and ending October 15, 2012 each participating Disney Store location will make available one new limited release doll from the Disney Villains Designer Collection.
· Vouchers will be distributed between 12:00pm and 1:00pm local time. At approximately 1:10pm, at an area designated outside the Disney Store (see Cast Member for specific location), the names of guests selected for the opportunity to purchase a doll will be announced.
· To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, be present to submit a voucher and for voucher selection, and present a valid photo ID to purchase a doll.
Each Guest who submits a voucher will be eligible to be selected for an opportunity to purchase a Disney Villains Designer Doll at full retail value. Use of voucher is acceptance of these terms. Limit one voucher and one doll purchase per Guest. Dolls limited to stock on hand and must be purchased immediately following announcement of selected Guests. A minimum of approximately six (6) dolls per participating Store will be available. Employees of The Walt Disney Company are not eligible to participate. Vouchers may not be sold, altered, duplicated or copied and will not be replaced if lost, stolen, or corrupted. Voucher must be relinquished at time of purchase. Offer may be canceled or modified at any time. Void where prohibited and subject to all applicable federal, state, provincial, and local laws. Valid while supplies last.

Exactly, there is no advantage to getting there super early to line up.

And you will know, if you did not get one at the store, to try online the next day. I think the online sale is midnight, PST, which of course is 3 am EST. Can anyone confirm this?

I am wondering that too. Which is kind of stinky, I have to set an alarm for 3am!

Maybe I should just stay up all night. But first I'd like to make sure that is actually the time so hopefully someone can confirm it.

Yes available on-line at 12 AM PST - so set the alarm before 3 AM on the East Coast!! Also a list of stores will be provided before Monday so guests will know which stores will have the dolls and who will not. Product that goes along with the dolls - mugs, journals, etc. will be available in the stores when opened for business in the morning.

Well, I am heading out tomorrow for a long drive (almost 2 hours!) to get to my nearest Disney Store! I know this sounds silly... especially since I have never collected anything in my life... But I was SO disappointed when I found the Designer Princess set close to the end of its release and was unable to get them.

I am now determined to attempt this set! I have saved and budgeted so that I can get a doll each week. So myself, along with a close friend and her husband, are going to drive to the store. I have never even drove to this mall before LOL So, I'm hoping to make it in one piece *fingers crossed* And get lucky enough to be drawn. But if I don't, there is always the second attempt online!

Good luck to everyone going to their store tomorrow!

Good Luck to you also!

I'm also going to try at the Disney Store and just have no idea how many people to expect. Looking forward to reading the stories of 'winning' the villain dolls.

Have fun and Good Luck to all Disney Fans!
