- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - Evil Queen, hag form
- Pinocchio - Pinocchio, regular and donkey, and the-bad-guy-whose-name-escapes-me Stromboli, I believe.
- Fantasia - I think there was the Hippo but it mightve been 9 inch, and i need 3 in There was a Sorcerer Mickey limited edition topper for a previous series that is 3 inches.
- Dumbo - Pink elephant chasers
- Bambi
- Saludos Amigos
- The Three Caballeros
- Make Mine Music
- Fun and Fancy Free
- Melody Time
- The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad 2010 Annual Pass Holder Special Edition for Disneyland (also available in WDW) was Mr. Toad.
- Cinderella - Fairy Godmother
- Alice in Wonderland - Alice
- Peter Pan - Peter
- Lady and the Tramp
- Sleeping Beauty
- One Hundred and One Dalmatians - Cruella de Vil
- The Sword in the Stone - Madamn Mims or whatever her name is lol
- The Jungle Book - Kaa
- The Aristocats - Marie
- Robin Hood - Prince John
- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
- The Rescuers
- The Fox and the Hound
- The Black Cauldron There was a 9" of the Horned King, but since you are only looking for 3" figures, thats not much help/
- The Great Mouse Detective
- Oliver & Company - Dodger
- The Little Mermaid - Ursula
- The Rescuers Down Under
- Beauty and the Beast - Maybe Beast, but same situation as Hippo
- Aladdin - Aladdin and Jafar chaser
- The Lion King - Simba?? and Hyeana
- Pocahontas - Governor Radcliffe
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame - Quasimodo
- Hercules - Phil
- Mulan - Mushu and Xi...bad guy lol
- Tarzan
- Fantasia 2000
- Dinosaur
- The Emperor's New Groove
- Atlantis: The Lost Empire
- Lilo & Stitch - is there a stitch one? Yup, there is a Stitch one from one of the park series
- Treasure Planet
- Brother Bear
- Home on the Range
- Chicken Little
- Meet the Robinsons
- Bolt
- The Princess and the Frog - Prince Naveen, frog mode
- Tangled

there are some where I think im gonna have to find something that deals with it. I believe theres a tropical one with some birds which I was thinking about placing with The Three Caballeros since that one takes in Brazil and deals alot with birds. If anyone has any hints, clues, or suggestion about these lemme know!
Not sure about one with tropical birds for Three Caballeros, but the rest of my suggestions/ideas are in bolded lime above. Great ideas.

on Mr. Toad - aaah lol i need it! time to start the hunt!
on the horned king - i may need to incorporate a couple 9 in since it may be hard to get them all in 3in
on stitch - lol well that 1 saved me lol

Anyone waiting for the Tailspin set on Friday, the official Disney blog posted they will be delayed a week.

Also announced the coming of the 'Occupation' series to be released March 4. Open box with a mystery 1.5" junior.

Issue I have..

I see alot of the large 9 inch ones on Ebay that I love love love
But hard to know what the actual cost is,
I know Ive paied like 44 for some 9 inch and on the Disneyshopping some are over 70

So how to know

And the big question is will they have the ones I want when I go down in Aug.
Love the Petes Dragon with elliot
and Love the Fantasmic 9 inch ones

I wish Disneyshopping, would offer more of a selection..

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself here. I collect mostly the Park series but am looking for a few random ones also. DH, I think, wants to start collecting the Star Wars series as well. Right now I have all of mine lining my fireplace mantle so I'll have to get them together for a close up group pic!

Cinderella's castle

As you can see from my avatar I LOVE Cinderella and all things Cindy! I have been hoping to trade for the Cinderella Castle chaser from the cutsters. I think I have bought more than a case and still haven't gotten it

I live very close to a Disney Store so I could get the Villans series or the Animation series very easily if there is one you would like of those. I also have the Small World flowers without a card though...we traded in a mystery box and got it.

So please let me now!

Thanks!

I hear you! Well I am not sure if it is possible because I haven't tried, but here are the numbers for the merchandise delivery service at Disneyland called Deliver"ears" 1-800-362-4533 and Disney World is 407-WDW-SHOP. I know that you can order things like shirts and toys, but I am not sure about collectibles.

Hope it helps,

I bought a few loose ones off DS.com when they went on sale, and got 2 Herbies and 3 monorail blues. I drive a VW Beetle so I will keep one, and I traded the other. Got lucky. I was just buying a few to trade at the parks.

So how to know
For the most part, if it's just a 9 inch figure, it retails between $39.99-$49.99.

If it's a 9 inch with a 1 1/2 inch (vinylmation jr.) it retails at $59.95.

If it's a 9 inch with a 3 inch figure the retail price is usually $74.99-$79.99.

I'm just getting into Vinylmation. I bought one from the Cutesters series on Friday and 4 from the Park 5 ( I think).

Then I got to go to Company D and I bought a whole case of Cutesters. Once I get home and open them I'll list my traders.
