Well, now that there is only one left to get I can safely say that I am really happy with how things have gone. I think everyone who has wanted them, us, the true fans, have been able to get them. It's great if the dolls have value but I am more happy that we can get them without having to pay crazy ebay prices!!!

This!

I paid $60 to ship the first 3, then I had to pay $40 in customs. $100!!!

Then I found a Disney Store north of the city that's not selling them very well, so I drove for an hour each way to save on shipping for the others.

Only 1 trip left!

I still don't understand why Free Shipping doesn't translate to Discounted Shipping (at least!) for Canada.

I agree, even though the princesses are more valuable, I'm glad that it was easier to get the villains and that those who wanted them got them and will enjoy them. I told a CM at my store how excited I was it's almost over and he said he thinks he's happier about it being almost over then we are lol.

Maybe you will get free shipping soon, Disneystore.com is just wrapping a free shipping period here in the US. Fingers crossed!

Did they ship all 6 dolls in one huge box? And are they all the same number out of the edition size? I had pre ordered the whole lot before hand but canceled it seeing how easy it has been to get them in store. I would have had to have a friend of mine ship it from overseas as well and I felt so bad about him mailing a freaking HUGE box lol.

I had to clear off a shelf for my Villains, I really didn't want to hang another shelf. I'm trying to come up with a creative way to make an invisible floating shelf with plexiglass and some shelf braces though. I would like them to look like there floating on the wall.

I'm glad that they all got to you in one piece. I'm going tomorrow to get my paws on Cruella. Out of all the dolls she was my number 1. I hope I can get her in store!

Yeah, they all arrived in one big box and they all had the same number out of edition size. Still haven't really figured out where they are going, but then again I have 6 of the princesses and I still haven't sorted a permanent home for them yet either.

Fingers crossed you get Cruella tomorrow, she's one of my faves out of this collection.

Good luck to those getting Cruella in store.

I can only get online, so it's going to be painful to wait an extra day.
I plan to wake up early to order, since I'm on the east coast, I for sure am not going to stay up to 3am to order it.

So far the villains have been much better. I'm not that worried but I work night shift so I'm awake at 3 in the morning anyway. During the princess sales last year the site was just blocked up with people at 3am and this year I haven't had any problem.

Just made it back from the mall and I got Cruella! I was nervous the whole time the raffle was going on. There was a big turn out for her and so there wasn't going to be enough dolls for everyone. My name was like the 3rd to the last called. She is so gorgeous! I love the line on her box "Heartless, cold and into haute couture.." lol.

At the register my Disney Store manager told me that all the Villains merchandise is now 25% off as well. I was thinking about picking up a diary, but I would have only gotten it because I have some of them for my princesses. I wasn't so crazy over the merchandise, so I just walked out happy with my doll.

I was also sure to thank the CM's who made this whole process pleasant and fair.
