    Folks,
    You can get "some" of the vinylmations on disneystore.com.

    It is worth ckecking every couple of days or so. Right now the 9" toy story is available.

    Anyone know of a PinsPic for Vinyls? I ordered 10 from DS.COM and 4 were dupes....I was hoping to trade them off but cannot seem to find any boards that facilitate such things. At least with pins you nearly always know what you are getting and if you get dupes / ones you don't like you can USUALLY find someone willing to trade on PinPics.

    Vinyls - not so much.


    Thx
    Ron

    Just wanted to let everyone know that Disney has raised the price of Vinylmations. The new 3 inch Park 5 are being sold for $12.95 at the park now. They were released Friday. The price of the new Halloween 9 inch is $48.95 now. Some CMs at D-Street said that this is how every new series is going to be priced. I hope it is not true but we'll see. That is a 30% price increase :scared1:

    I'm so sad about the 30% price increase. This little collecting hobby is getting very expensive. I really want to get the Park 5 tray...but I'm hesitating cauze of the price. :confused3

    I feel the same way. We have almost all of the 3" that have been released so far and quite a few 9". Our DD also likes to collect them too. I don't know what we are going to do now. There is no way we will be able to keep our sets complete now and buy for our 6 year old. I was hoping the rumor wouldn't be true. It takes the fun of blind boxing away and will drive collectors to the secondary market. I don't think many people will buy blind boxes for $13 and risk getting something that they don't want.

    Not a fan of the price increase, but I usually buy mine off of ebay since I don't want to risk getting one I don't like. Now I definitely don't want to blind box! I'm really disappointed though because there are supposed to be a lot of cool figures coming out next year (there was a huge update after the Trade City event on vinylnation.net).

    But has anyone seen the new holiday designs for the Osborne Lights and MVMCP? They look awesome!

    Holiday vinylmations

    Just scroll down a little bit and you'll see them. :thumbsup2

    I started Park series #4 on our trip in December and when we went back in October they were no where to be found. Anyone have any idea when/if it'll be released soon?

    My DH & I were talking to a CM at D-Street about that and he said that is really deceiving to people. Once a series is sold out it's gone, they don't produce anymore.

    PM me if you want some ideas on displaying them - I am super active on another VM board and they have a lot of cool ideas and resources.

    For 3" ones - Buy the tiered clear cases from The Container Store, if you want to hang them on a wall the Shot Glass holders from Michaels are a nice option as long as you don't have any vinyls with HATS or Elongated necks.


    Displays

    Clear, 3-platform display cases from The Container Store - Called the MULTI LEVEL DISPLAY BOX
    http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10022884&N=&Ntt=display


    Risers, from The Container Store
    http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10019504&N=&Ntt=risers


    The football display cube from The Container Store (Neebles says it's great for 9" vinyls!)
    http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10001592&N=&Ntt=football+display+cube


    12-compartment box from The Container Store
    http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10009795&N=&Ntt=divider+box


    Rectangular boxes from Crate and Barrel

    12" display box, from The Container Store http://www.containerstore.com/shop?p...N=&Ntt=display


    Acrylic display, found on eBay (for searching, it was listed as ACRYLIC 3 STEP DISPLAY - 2 X 15 X 6.5 - 3/16" CLEAR)


    For a huge selection of acrylic risers, like the ones below, check out this link, and do a search for "acrylic riser"

    I can't believe they're going to do away with the artist cards. They already did away with the buttons as well. Of course most of the time when you trade in the mystery box you don't get the card anyway, so if they don't have cards this will alleivate that.
