    Check vinylmation.com to see if there will be any events at WDW while you're there. Typically the artist signings occur around the time a new series is released.

    Also, check the Art of Disney's website: http://psc.disney.go.com/eventservices/artofdisneyparks/index.html

    Sometimes you might catch some of the artist's doing signings for other Disney artwork.

    We are in the world now and these little guys have become quite the addiction. My 3 year old daughter is collecting the cutesters, my 6 year old son the park series 3 and I have been partial to Urban 3, My wife has stayed away so for. We have about 12 between the 3 of us and yesterday at AK we purchased 1 box of each, I let my son choose are boxes and he pulled two chasers:banana:

    We check out tomorrow so hopefully it doesn't dent the wallet to much more.
    Also saw some Muppets at the DTD art store and the Contemporary gift shop had a few park series 2.

    It doesn't start denting the wallet too much until you start buying the whole case so you have a complete set plus chaser and then 12 more to trade.

    I love these little guys, I just went to the new Vinylmation store last night, and I am in trouble. You can trade your duplicates in so I got 4 new ones last night. The store was packed. I don't the complete set of any series. I really want the holiday ones though.

    I have 2 questions...

    When you trade in the parks/at Downtown Disney/with a Disney cast member, do you have to have the figure AND the artist card? I was wondering how that would work, and what I should be prepared to bring when we go this summer. :)

    Also, I want to check and make sure this is not just my computer - has the official Disney Vinylmation blog not been updated since April 3? (http://eventservices.disney.go.com/files/vinylblog.html) I'm just checking because it seems like they were doing so well about updating it, and then all of a sudden it just stopped. However, that seems to be what happened with the "Where Is the Vinylmation?" section, so I guess it kind of makes sense (or my computer is jacked up).

    If anyone is interested, I just got off the EBTA cruise and brought home 2 of the Castaway Club 3" ones with me. They were only available for purchase for a few days during the trip, and you could only purchase 2 per person. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    When I traded mine they just took the figure. All you get in return is a figure also. You can make up to 2 trades per day. One from a blind box and one from a clear box. I had a friend with me so she traded 2 for me.

    I don't remember the exact date, but the blog has definitely been updated since the 3rd. The last update (might have been the 23rd) was the last preview of the upcoming Star Wars series.

    Thanks, I'm glad I asked! I clicked on "home" and apparently they re-did the entire official Vinylmation site, including links, and I still had the old link bookmarked. I never would have figured that out! :)

    I have heard that some CM's are starting to trade Vinyls with cards if they have them.
    We are planning on taking our cards with our vinyls this summer to trade.
    The card is not necessary to trade but it sounds like there are some figures with cards for those who collect both.

    I've gotten several vinylmation PINS on Ebay and am hoping that the CMs in the parks have some to trade when I am there in August with my family!! Is anyone seeing these pins "on" the CMs?
