    That Sorcerer Mickey one is awesome. I have to get that one even though I am not a huge fan of the park 5 series (I think park 4 was better but park 5 is growing on me!).

    I HAVE to get the retro ones. Love them.

    The pics from Trade City were what finally hooked me as well. I SO want the Nerds Rock series. And the Haunted Mansion set. Sigh. As if the pins weren't enough...:rolleyes:

    Congrats! I have the 10 yrs of Pin Trading set also. I love how it turned out!
    Pink Gears is on Disney Shopping.com and it looks like Memphis and Yelling were added today.
    I just ordered Yelling for my collection.
    I received Blue Flames over the weekend. It is a very cool vinylmation.

    Hey! Just wanted to introduce myself to this thread. I'm Rachel and a fellow Vinylmation addict. I'm pretty excited because although I've been collecting since Park 1 was released (add me to the list of people who wish they had bought more back then!), I just bought my first 9"! It's the Day of the Dead one from Trade City, which I've wanted since they first released the preview image. It doesn't come with the 3", but I'm okay with that since it was a lot cheaper that way, and I'm not really a hardcore collector that needs everything.

    I'm also super excited for the Nightmare Before Christmas series, I think I'm going to go broke getting those. As well as Muppets 2. I really hope they include Animal in that series.

    I had to limit myself this past trip. But I did get the 9" Blue Flame from Urban #4 and the matching Mickey ear hat and special 3". May have to figure a way to get the Screamer set too. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    I also saw that the DVC vinyl is now available at D Street on the Westside at DTD.
    The Mr. Toad AP vinyl is still available, as well as a couple from Trade City.

    Hoping I can find an 'in' for a couple of special releases that are coming up--the special Sorcerer Mickey dual pack and the Steam Park watch combo.

    Just got my first 2 yesterday. Our Disney Store just started selling them..WooHoo!:woohoo:
    Also found out the Disney Store and Doorway to Dreams do trading!!!:cool1:
    My DS, 8, was so excited to open it up and see what he got. Can't wait to get more and start trading.:cheer2:

    Just a side note which is totally off topic but totally made my day....we were chit chatting with the girl at the Door way to dreams counter, thats how we found out about the trading, and she opened a drawer and pulled out a mickey rice crispy treat for my son, a chocolate dipped one with sprinkles....he was so excited!:goodvibes It's the little things that make a big impression.

    Me and my girls LOVE collecting Vinylmation. We were in the parks when the original Parks and Urban 1 series were out, and I thought ohhhh, how neat and said NOPE, will NOT start collecting these, have enough stuff we collect.
    Well, that didn't last!
    It's been a year now, started with Park and Urban 2. We went a little nuts at first with them, but then really took a break from them. But now our trip in July and trip last week - ugh - and then add in all we picked up on ebay, now have around 100+ of the 3" figures and a handful of the 9".... and MANY more soon to be released ones 3" and 9" on our wish list!

    Problem is... not sure where to put them now that the collection has grown. Had them in the girls room, but moved them today, as they were taking over their space to put all their other stuff they like displayed in their room. My autistic son wants to play with them, so they are kinda best off in their room.
    Today I moved them into the living room - but eh, not loving them in there. They actually look kinda tacky in there... and son kept trying to play with them (such as popping all the arms off of them)!
    So now off to put them back in the girls room - but really, not sure how we'll have room to add all the new ones we want! I think we may have to really thin out the collection to make room for new?

    We have had a blast trading them in the parks... though you know you have too many when you go to a mystery box, ask for a certain number... they pull it out and you say ugh, we have that already - and then get a super nice CM who takes the time to seriously pull out 10 different numbers - and yep, we have them all.... this kept happening our last trip.
    they sure are addicting, though!
    Can't wait for the sorcerer Mickey, the holiday 9" ones, and a bunch of Park/Urban 5! the madness never ends!!

    I don't know if you guys have a Michael's, but I was able to find a really nice display case for a great price to display them very nicely on our living room wall.

    Michaels... was it a black shot glass case?? Had looked at that and wondered if it would fit the vinylmations! Gotta be the same one you got! Thought it would be a great idea. May have to pick it up and try it out!

    For now...decided on my favorites in the living room - have a 4 shelf with glass door unit that originally was for stereo equipment - very nice looking, so have the favs in there. Was too cluttered and junky with all of them... so now put two plastic display cases from container store in the girls room with the ones they still love, but I'm not loving!
    and sad news for our Buzz vinyl today... my autistic son got to him and chewed one of his ears off! WHY couldn't he have done it to one of the gear bears that there are some many to get through trades!

    That's the one. Got it 50% off. Fits them perfect! Our living room is done in khaki and red and I have black frames, mirror, so it fits perfect! The only problem- eventually they won't all fit in it.
