    I had the shelves for a while. I think I got them at Target, I believe Michaels has shelves like this also.

    Does anyone know if the Flag series is blind or open boxed? And do you suppose they are also available (or will be) at the pavilions around World Showcase?

    I too have a problem. I made the mistake of counting mine a few weeks ago and I'm up to 200 3" & 9", more technically because I was counting sets as 1 unit.

    I'm not as complusive as I used to be, still bad though. I had to scale back, not only for the wallet, but for space as well. That and it's just impossible to keep up with what seems like weekly releases.

    I find..that I have to choose..what I like...
    I do not like star wars...
    so..i am not keeping any...
    and of the animation...I like santa ,fairy godmother and Pinocchio.
    so,I only keep those.
    It makes it easier...for me..
    not to have complete sets...
    as...my mantle..is overloaded already.;)

    I definitely want to get Star Wars at some point, just not sure when since our next trip to the World isn't until Sept., but we've got a cruise in May. Maybe they'll have it onboard.

    I probably won't bother with Animation or Villains, although I do want the 9" Dancing Hippo when it comes out. The Park series is my addiction. I keep saying I'm not going to get all of them and then somehow I end up with all of them in my quest to get the chaser.:lmao:

    does anyone know what the all white with the black 'eye' one is from Holiday 2? I can't figure it out at all.

    Went and visited with the cast members at my local Disney Store. The lovely lady we spoke with let me know that she had three cases of the Villains series #1 ready to go on sale tomorrow. Going to have to decide whether or not to go get some tomorrow or wait it out.

    My store does not trade at this time.

    I just started getting into Vinylmation this week. I wasn't really loving them when my sister gave me one of the Cutesters ages ago. But it's catching on. I really love the Animation series myself, and the Villains that came out today. Now to decide what to do with my duplicate from the Villains series.

    Sell them? Trade them? I assume that they will be trade-able in the parks and Downtown Disney.

    Hi guys,

    Just to let you know there is a date for a NYC vinylmation trading meet on Feb 19th. :goodvibes

    It is also under the FB page called "Mousetraders NYC". I think there will also be pin trading for those into that and general Disney chatting - you don't have to trade anything...just hang. :wizard:

    With all this weather, I still have to get to my local stores to see how Animation Series is going, I don't think I'll get the Villans though.

    I'm very much want the 40th Anniversary series though. :thumbsup2
