Yeah, you'd be lucky to find Ghost Obi for under 200.

Sorry, but no. Try your chances on eBay, but it's going to cost a pretty penny and then some.

Ya, I've been watching eBay, and they are getting pricey!

Is anyone in here trading/selling/buying in Canada?

My boyfriend and I just started our collection yesterday... we're hooked!
So far we have:
- Animations 1: Mushu, Alice and Dodger
- Villains: Shan Yu, Ursela, and Jafar (yay!)
- Have A Laugh: Pluto's Sweater, and Mickey and the Seal
- Star Wars: Obi Wan, and a tray that has yet to be opened... (hopefully with the super chaser in it lol)

BTW, how do I post pictures? I checked out the FAQ but I don't have a "Manage Attachments" button

I believe you'll need 10 posts before you can post pictures! That's how it was when I started. And then all you'll need is to upload it to an image host and copy/paste the URL with [IMG] and [/IMG] tags around it.

I live close to Hamilton and I just started collecting too. Don't have any doubles yet, but when I do I would be very happy to trade with you. Did you get your vinyls at the Disney Store in Limeridge? I didn't see any Star Wars when I was there on Saturday. My kids really want me to collect those.

Oh, now we match!!!

I'm not going to try and get all 4 chasers either. I'm good with the pink elephant I have.

I'm hoping our trading day on Saturday will help me get Peter & Dragon to complete my Animation series as well as Easter Chick & St Patty Day & maybe Summer Santa to complete my Holiday 2 series.

Then I'm going to turn my attention to 40th Anniversary & maybe the Oh Mickey series. Until Haunted Mansion comes out. That series is going to by NUTS.

If anyone is after the Park 5 9" Fantasmic! and Tree of Life and is not near WDW or DLR, they were just listed on disneystore .com at around 3:30am EST. Do not wait to get these if you really want them; the Park and the character 9" usually sell out by early in the morning, since most of the 9" vinyls are sent to the two D-Street stores in the first place.

Also, if you enter FREESHIP in the promo field at checkout, you'll get free shipping. Believe that code works through the weekend.

Urban 3 and Park 3 cases are up too, discounted to $139.95; blind boxes for both are on there for $5.99. Good for trading, or collecting if you haven't tackled those series yet.

I was lucky to order the 2 9" vinyls off the site at around 6:45 cst this morning.
The Fantasmic figure looked much better than I expected from the earlier pictures released.

I'm hoping my order went through, but not keeping my hopes up sadly. I wasn't able to get on to DS.com until 5:30 this morning but it let me submit the order. Let's see if I get another email tomorrow morning telling me "sorry, but we sold out" again, like with Simba (and that order I placed at 3:30 in the morning). Trying not to get my hopes up. But in the event I don't get it through DS.com someone was supposed to pick it up for me this morning. Kepping my fingers crossed that I'll get the Fantasmic somehow.

I love the Fantasmic one! but I do aheva ban on getting 9" vinyls. They are just too big! I already have 2, only because they are from the old NY store and the new NY store.

I'm hlaf-hoping DS.com is sold out!!

In any case, I'm heading out to the vinyl meet / disney chat meet-up at 2pm at The Rock, NYC. There will be a big green mickey head to find us at concourse level, Starbucks, should you want to join.

I'll also be tweeting! my name is i my sig.

Hey guys! I am totally new to the Vinylmation thing, I only have the 3" Football and 1.5" Football Field Jr. from the Sports Series.

I was NEVER planning on buying a Vinylmation ever, but I got into them because of my best friend's son, who has the entire Park 2 Series and about half of the Clear Series. I started buying them as presents for him, and I'm planning on getting him the Condiments Series and a 9" of some sort when we go to DW for his birthday next month.

Now after searching for stuff for him and reading this thread, I am totally ready to expand my collection! I want to complete the Sports and start collecting the Star Wars and Nerds Rock Series, and which ever individual ones I may like also[Like the Walk/Don't Walk, I just wish those weren't so expensive!] I didn't want to get into Vinylmations because I knew they would be addictive, but I guess they are like Lays, you can't have just one!

I'm looking forward to sharing my new collection with you all!
