Ha ha! I caved and pre-ordered all 6. Couldn't help myself
Anyone else pre-ordered?

ordered all 6 as well so I don't have to get up each week and order them individually - also I am hoping since they are a set they will all be numbered the same like they did for the sets of designer princess dolls sold at D23
I pre-ordered the set and bought all the mugs. I have been selling so many of my possessions on eBay and saving, but I still feel guilty about the purchase. I hope that our orders go through and that we won't get e-mails saying that we aren't going to get our dolls after all, like what happened with some customers during the princess fiasco.
As a former TDS castmember it also makes me crazy to see a post like this. However, if the item was purchased WITHOUT THE CASTMEMBER DISCOUNT then the poster is no different than any other person who scoops up items and sells them for profit......
For those that pre-ordered, I hope your order went through. I guess there were only 250 sets to pre-order and they were sold out in 10-20mins.
I have been reading that many pre-ordered and got the confirmation, but the orders never went through and they are out of luck. To me, doesn't make sense to pre-order so few sets w/ a run of 13000 of each doll.
I hope my order goes through... I'd be gutted if it didn't.
I ordered mine in the UK and it says theres a LE of 350 sets over here.
I collect all the Limited Edition dolls for my Disney obsessed daughters (ok, all of us are Disney obsessed but what's the point in having kids if you can't use them as a cover for your Disney addiction!! ).
The Designer princesses was something of a fiasco and to be honest, I don't see the villains series being any different which is why I bought our sets in the pre-sale. The edition size is bigger, but unlike some who think that there will be less demand for villains, I actually think the demand will be higher. From what I've been reading in the collector forums and fan pages, a lot of people have been dying for a villains set of collectors stuff for years.
I think most of the people who collected the Princess series will probably want this set too but you'll also have the villain collectors to add to the mix.
The US had 750 (rumour has it!) sets to sell in the pre-order. The UK had 350 (published on the site) and the assumption is that Germany and France will probably have the same number of sets as the UK. That means that 1800 of the dolls are gone in pre-order sets alone.
A set sold on eBay last night for $1200, so the demand certainly seems to be there. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with the lottery/raffle fiasco in the stores because according to the Disney Press Release each store (and there are around 200 stores worldwide that will get dolls) is only guaranteed 6 dolls.
I hope it doesn't turn into a fiasco for those who are trying to get them, but I fear that it might which is why I took no chances!
Well, so much for patience and common sense. Checked e-bay are there are a bunch of completed autions now. People have been paying $140-$160 +/- per doll and $1,000.00 per set. And people wonder why the e-bay sellers ect try to buy up the LE items, people pay the inflated prices.
actually none have sold for $1,200 it just looks that way when you look at completed auctions but if you click the item to see the details you will see that a best offer was accepted instead - still going high at the $900 - $1,000 marks
does anyone know if the nail polish set is actually available in the actual stores?
I'm planning a trip to the Disney Store today so if I see them I will let you know. I know it says available in certain stores so I'm not sure. I am planning on getting them though!
They're not out until September and they're being released 1 per week so you won't see them in the stores. There are 142 stores in the US that will get the dolls.
If you read what I'd quoted you'd see I wasn't referring to the dolls but rather to the nail polish and yes, that is supposed to be in select stores along with the lip gloss. I could swear the blog I read said those items were out but I may have been mistaken, either way I'll be checking at our Disney Store. I didn't make it last night so I'm planning on going tonight.
Respectfully, as a former TDS CM, you are not aware of all the current rules. They have evolved over the years. This is NOT ok, and TDS CMs are not allowed to do this and that is all I will say.
On a positive note, I hope the sale of the Villians collection goes smoothly, and that the guests that want them can get them without resorting to Ebay.
I tried to get the pre sale collection online and it sold out very quickly.
Now have to try to get them one at a time again. I'm not hopeful I'll be able to nab them all at retail price and I can't afford to pay an arm and a leg on ebay to get them.
Last time, with the princesses, it was different. The price was lower, the numbers of the editions varied, etc.
And last time, you had doll collectors, Ebayers, and even guests buying them for KIDS, as collectibles, all competing.
This time, I think the higher price, larger editions, new rules (one per person), and the new release procedure (which makes it much harder for the Ebayers) I think it will be ok. And how many grandmas will be buying Villians dolls for their grandkids, like they did with the princesses?
So, hopefully it will go smoothly!
Just talked to a friend who works at a DS they got 21 of each doll. They are allowed to purchase them for themselves but they too are part of a lottery just like the general public. I only want the Evil Queen. Maleficent is my fav Villain along with Ursula but not wild about the doll versions so much.
So I found this online through the Disney blog while trying to find the release dates of all the dolls.
Does this mean that if you show up at the store, fill out a voucher they will randomly choose who gets a doll? It doesn't matter how early you get there and wait in line? That sounds much better then trying to get to a store at the crack of dawn, which I can't do because I have to put my daughter on the bus in the morning. Maybe this way I can actually TRY to get to the store on Monday.
Has anyone heard what time they might go on sale online on Tuesdays?
Exactly, there is no advantage to getting there super early to line up.
And you will know, if you did not get one at the store, to try online the next day. I think the online sale is midnight, PST, which of course is 3 am EST. Can anyone confirm this?
I am wondering that too. Which is kind of stinky, I have to set an alarm for 3am!
Maybe I should just stay up all night. But first I'd like to make sure that is actually the time so hopefully someone can confirm it.
