Just wanted to let everyone know that Disney has raised the price of Vinylmations. The new 3 inch Park 5 are being sold for $12.95 at the park now. They were released Friday. The price of the new Halloween 9 inch is $48.95 now. Some CMs at D-Street said that this is how every new series is going to be priced. I hope it is not true but we'll see. That is a 30% price increase

I'm so sad about the 30% price increase. This little collecting hobby is getting very expensive. I really want to get the Park 5 tray...but I'm hesitating cauze of the price.

I feel the same way. We have almost all of the 3" that have been released so far and quite a few 9". Our DD also likes to collect them too. I don't know what we are going to do now. There is no way we will be able to keep our sets complete now and buy for our 6 year old. I was hoping the rumor wouldn't be true. It takes the fun of blind boxing away and will drive collectors to the secondary market. I don't think many people will buy blind boxes for $13 and risk getting something that they don't want.

Not a fan of the price increase, but I usually buy mine off of ebay since I don't want to risk getting one I don't like. Now I definitely don't want to blind box! I'm really disappointed though because there are supposed to be a lot of cool figures coming out next year (there was a huge update after the Trade City event on vinylnation.net).

But has anyone seen the new holiday designs for the Osborne Lights and MVMCP? They look awesome!

Holiday vinylmations

Just scroll down a little bit and you'll see them.

I started Park series #4 on our trip in December and when we went back in October they were no where to be found. Anyone have any idea when/if it'll be released soon?

I wondered if that was the case. I saw a few clear display cases in the stored though with the series in it and a sign that said "returning soon."

My DH & I were talking to a CM at D-Street about that and he said that is really deceiving to people. Once a series is sold out it's gone, they don't produce anymore.

Display options

PM me if you want some ideas on displaying them - I am super active on another VM board and they have a lot of cool ideas and resources.

For 3" ones - Buy the tiered clear cases from The Container Store, if you want to hang them on a wall the Shot Glass holders from Michaels are a nice option as long as you don't have any vinyls with HATS or Elongated necks.


Displays

Clear, 3-platform display cases from The Container Store - Called the MULTI LEVEL DISPLAY BOX
http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...N=&Ntt=display


Risers, from The Container Store
http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...&N=&Ntt=risers


The football display cube from The Container Store (Neebles says it's great for 9" vinyls!)
http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...l+display+cube


12-compartment box from The Container Store
http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...tt=divider+box


Rectangular boxes from Crate and Barrel
http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family...1&SearchPage=1


12" display box, from The Container Store http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...N=&Ntt=display


Acrylic display, found on eBay (for searching, it was listed as ACRYLIC 3 STEP DISPLAY - 2 X 15 X 6.5 - 3/16" CLEAR)


For a huge selection of acrylic risers, like the ones below, check out this link, and do a search for "acrylic riser"

More acrylic display cases

Don't forget the "official" VM display:

9" display, found on eBay (for searching, it was listed as Vinylmation 9" Bobble Head Boxed Display Case Stackable)
Here is a link to the image, it's too big to put in the post: http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/3...92195739_o.jpg

Shelving

The Detolf glass-door cabinet, from IKEA (a popular choice)

I can't believe they're going to do away with the artist cards. They already did away with the buttons as well. Of course most of the time when you trade in the mystery box you don't get the card anyway, so if they don't have cards this will alleivate that.
