HAHAHAHA!

I love them and CAN'T wait for the Haunted Mansion Series!!!
Yeah the HM series, and the Steam Punk are going to probably be the first ones I toss a lot of cash out on.

Each tray has 24 figures total. 2 sets of the 11 commons, 1 chaser, and 1 filler (another common).

My DD has been looking for a year for a certain one, still looking to trade or select it.
Sounds awesome.. . I will admit I can see why people like collecting them. I was at Hollywood Studios yesterday and bought about 5 more. Theres a litlte bit of rush when opening and not knowing which one you're going to get..Thanks for your help kikiq!!

Does anyone know if the star wars vinylmations are sold out in the parks? Heard a rumor that the were holding them in efforts to have enough for SWW. We are going in late Sept and my DH would love to buy some. Any info?

The only real answer is that no one knows the answer. except people directly involved in Disney Merchandise and they are not really talking.

What HAS been said officially is that fans shouldn't worry, and that they will be around for a long time. The rumor that they are being held back for SWW is likely true. Out of stock for now, but not sold out in the sense that they are retired. I've said before that SW has the potential to be the highest selling VM Set to date, and I think Disney probably realizes that as well.

I was tempted to start buying them in Epcot. I thought it would be neat to have one from each country, however DH thought it would be just more junk collecting dust and taking up space in our house.

After reading a trip report where someone bought their first one and their experience trading them, I now want to start this when we are there in July. I think it sounds like something the kids would enjoy.

When we were there in January we started buying the small figures - Collectors Pack Park Series?? The kids loved those, so there I was, standing in the stores feeling the packages to guess at what was inside! (Sorry to those that don't approve) Yes, I even save the packaging and tried scanning it to put in my digital scrapbook. Maybe this obsessive behavior is why I should stay away from vinylmation!



We do have 2 vinylmations that my sister got for us on her trip last year. I don't care what DH thinks, I'm adding to that collection!

My teenage daughter is. I have 12 of them, but only because I really like the particular design. She is not into the trading, only collecting. However, she only purchases certain series. She does not care for any of the Urban Series, Villians, etc.

I was down in December with my mom and we passed a display of Vinylmations and we both thought they were cute, but probably wouldn't buy them. Famous last words. I caved and got one, and it's been downhill from there. I have complete sets of Park 3, Villains, and Muppets and then some stragglers. My mom has complete sets of Animation and Toy Story, she also has stragglers and some special edition ones. And between us we just about have a complete Park 5.
We're going to be down in the world in May and will probably come home with several more, each.

I was down in December with my mom and we passed a display of Vinlymations in one of the stores, we agreed that they were cute, but probably wouldn't buy any. Famous last words. I finally caved and got one, we ended up coming home with about four each. It's snowballed from there. I have complete sets of Park 3, Villains, and Muppets. I also have some stragglers as well. My mom has complete sets of Toy Story and Animation, she also has stragglers and some special editions. And between the two of us we almost have a complete Park 5.
We'll be down in the world in May and will probably come home with a few more each.

No one's answered this yet....but they're $9.95 a box. (or at least they were in May 2010) One comes in a box. The larger versions are more expensive I'm sure, but I have no experience buying them.

They're getting more expensive too, depending on the series. For example, the Toy Story and Star Wars series are $11.95 each.

Yes, and the Parks #5 are $12.95 each. I'm guessing Parks #6 will be the same.
Some of the new ones, though, are still $9.95 (Villains #1).

Do most of the you go for complete sets? I think I'm only going to go for certain ones from each set, since there are a few duds I've seen in some of them.
