    The new Animation series that came out in the store today are exactly the same as the ones in the parks.

    Maybe he is thinking of the Nightmare Before Christmas, which came out in window boxes so you could see what you got.

    I think the DS will be getting some exclusives so your DS might want to rethink his stance on the Store vinyls:lmao:

    Its going to be the Villains series 1! I am a huge fan so I am so excited that they will be only at the Disney Stores

    :lmao:the exclusives..he will take...:rotfl:
    but,the nightmare stuff is the same in the park as in the stores..except..
    there is something about some package or perhaps it is the figure ..
    some kind of marking..that my son says that he prefers the park ones.
    I was at the NY store..and...I could have bought tons of the scarce jacks and pumpkins..
    In fact,I was getting a bunch of em to resell...
    when,my dd called my Ds ..who was home in fla...
    And..told him..what I was getting...
    and..did he want anything...
    Not only..did he stupidly convince me not to buy so many..
    but..he did not want them..
    Even though..he needed a Jack..
    He said he would wait till he could find one in the park..
    I have no idea why..
    only..that fanatical collector....feels that way..
    I am going to have to pay attention..next time..and ask him.
    As for him and the Jack..
    he still does not have it..and haunts D street..quite often.popcorn::
    So..the villains will not be at the parks at all?
    I have not been paying atention..
    but,I am sure..DS..has.:laundy:

    I guess it is just for the Park 3 series? I *just* finished that series the other day (got my last 2 via Ebay). I usually like trading, but when it comes down to 2 more with no trading in sight...off to Ebay I go!

    I think the NYC trading group is tentatively planning a March meet. :goodvibes

    I went to a local store and all Animation sold out :sad2:

    Though, I guess I didn't spent any more money, but I did end up getting the Christmas robe they had for $19.99. My cousin made me!! :lmao:

    I have a couple more to check but I bet they are sold out too. Argh.

    The NYC trading group might be looking to mid-February date. There's a FB page under "Mousetraders NYC".

    If anyone has Holiday Series 2, I only need 3 more to complete that series. I have quite few duplicates!

    is that a DVC one I see???? And did you get the red monorail when they were first released or did you go to Ebay for it?

    Sorry for the random questions!

    That is the DVC vinylmation and the red monorail, both were bought on Disney property. Looking forward to my next trip to pick up some more.:thumbsup2

    Very cool! I had forgotten about the DVC vinyls being released. I need to pay more attention!

    I just get the ones that I find interesting and the kids help me trade but we've managed to build up a rather large 'collection' of them in less than a year. They are my 'hidden mickeys' (that's what the kids call them) though since they are so pricey.

    I counted mine and currently have 151 of the 3" vinyls. Sixteen more are set to arrive by the end of next week. I may have a problem....

    Todd: WOW! that's a lot of vinylmation, let's see them.
    How does everyone display there vinylmations? Mine are on 2 shelves in my downstairs bathroom (DW has a strict policy on how much Disney stuff I can display and where:lmao:).

    Here are how mine are displayed:

    great pics Joe! I just have mine on top of short bookcases in my room. The kids like to arrange them all constantly so I don't have a 'display' setup. I'm thinking I should get shelves and get my actual knickknacks up off the bookcases and then there would be plenty of room for the vinyls.

    Thankfully my DH is just as much a Disney nut as me. Our room is 'decorated' in Disney and Star Wars. :laughing:

    I'm so jealous of some of your park 1s (ok, mainly Figment and the Sorcerer Hat one..the more I see that one the more I think it's really cool!)!!! When vinylmation first came out we were in NYC and stopped at the World of Disney store. I vaguely remember seeing signs all over the store/in the windows for it but I had no clue at the time what it was. Still kind of bummed I didn't get any of them. :headache::headache::headache:

    Figment is one of my favorites. I am only missing the Bad Apple and Disneyland Mystery from the Parks 1 group. Usually I have the urge to have a complete set, but I don't want to pay what people are asking on Ebay, so I just get them from the Disney parks and the Disney shopping site.

    Mine are displayed at work and on a bookshelf. They make me so happy! Especially my Mr. Incredible Mickey--- he's my favorite! My kids have a bunch scattered about their rooms as well. My youngest son started collecting with Park 1 so he used to PLAY with them. EEK! His monorail has scuffs from when he was throwing it around waiting in line at WDW. He still loves it-- and I won't think about the depreciation! :rotfl:
