Aw, has anyone seen the 9" Fantasmic that comes out this month? That is as close to a must have as I can get. Here's to hoping I can get my hands on it somehow.

Are you going to go for the entire sets of each or are you hoping for certain ones?

Smile Went to my disney store....uh oh!

..and bought me some vinyls!

I couldn't resist, so I got the rest of the box of animation vinyls - there were 5 missing, so not quite as costly as a whole box plus I got a Disney Visa card discount.

AND I'm still missing 2! LOL!

I got the Pinocchio variant (without the ears) and the pink elephant chaser/variant.

Whew! What a night!

Here is a great story.

So I go to my Disney store located at the mall in Oklahoma city. I'm still new to this collection and I was working on my Nightmare collection as well as my villian collection. I just got my state income tax so what better way to celebrate than go buy a few vinyl's. I went to find and buy the 9 remaining Nightmare ones I needed (boogie, zero, santa, dr finklestein, sally and I went looking but not expecting to find lock, jock barrel and corpse kid) to my surprise the cast member went to the back and found the 4 kids! I was so excited.

As I was paying she asked me if I was colecting anythign else and I said I am also working on the villians and I just needed Prince John because 5 otehrs were on their way in the mail. She asks "so all you need is Prince John and your set in complete?" She turns around and pulled him out of a drawer. She had bought him looking for a specific one. She said "today is your lucky day" and gave it to me. She said as a gift for sharing a passion!

So I went ahead and started working on Toy Story. LOL I was so happy she gave me Prince John!

I bought the nearly full box (only 5 missing), but not enouh to give me a whole set. I'm going to try to post some pics later.

I'm missing Peter Pan and Dragon(?) and regular Pinocchio (with the ears). There are 4 chasers and I only got one.

Now, I have quite a bit to trade on our trading day on Feb 19th in NYC!

http://twitpic.com/3xkdtq - almost full box!

http://twitpic.com/3xkmsx - the results!

How awesome is that? I don't think I'll get so lucky, lol. I still need 4 to complete my set but shouldn't spend any more money for a while. I'm hoping that I can at least get 2 of them with my duplicates to trade later on but I'm also trying to get Magic Mirror from Park 5. I must have anything Snow White related, lol.

I am just in love with that chaser! But I think my best bet for it is eBay sadly. But maybe I will get lucky. I did blind box Jafar. Are you going to go for all of the chaser variants?

Outside of the Pinocchio variant and the chasers, I'm still missing Marie, Mushu (Dragon from Mulan), Peter Pan, Marie, and Quasimodo. I am going to get the Simba combo pack that comes out on Friday though.

I run a site called DisneyDispatch and would like to add a new column about ... Disney Vinylmation! It would join the many other columns on the site and appear weekly.

If anyone is interested in writing that column, I'd love to hear from you.

I guess some series have combo packs with a special 3" (in this case Simba, from Lion King) paired with a blind box from that series. It gets released on the 11th but at DLR and WDW locations only. I'm still new to all of this I have no idea. I hope they still have some in a week and a half when my friend is there to pick some stuff up for me.

Ugh, OK. SO I was very, very bad today. I now have doubles of almost the entire Animation series minus any chasers/variants and still no Marie or Mushu. I need to get my trade on like ... right now but I wont be at DLR for another few weeks. Le sigh.

Hehe, if anyone needs any of the following:

- Aladdin
- Alice
- Dodger
- Phil
- Peter Pan
- Fairy Godmother
- Pinocchio (donkey)

ETA: In hindsight? I should have just purchased a full tray. Then at least I would have everyone and a chaser.

In the past, there were combo packs for Scoerer Mickey for Park Series...5, I think and also for Steampunk.

Since I'm nowhere near either places, I'll have to wait until my May visit to WDW.

Yes, there are at least 3 combo packs that I know of, each with the extra revealed character being Mickey.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey, Plane Crazy Mickey, and a Black and Brown Mickey. I believe I heard somewhere that there would be a total of 5 of these combo packs.

The Brown and Black Mickey combo is for sale on DS.com now.

Brown and Black Mickey Combo Pack on DisneyStore.com
