How cool is this? Artist Jerry Sinner knew that I collected Disney Vinylmation figures and took it upon himself to create a special Minnie Mouse one just for me. It’s Minnie in her slippers and robe as she’s waking up for the day. Kinds of how I look sometimes, LOL. I actually have this image on my mug, which you can see in this special video I made to show you. Have a look!
Hello Heroes and Disney Fans,
I have something cool that you might want to check out. As you know I collect a lot of vinyl figures like POP! and Vinylmation. Well, my friend Phil started a group on Facebook that focuses on Disney vinyl figures, appropriately titled Disney Vinyl Collectors.
There you can post and discuss news about all the various Disney figures that are coming out, what you may have blind boxed or what you want to trade.
Follow the link here - http://www.facebook.com/groups/disneyvinylcollectors. You have to be logged into Facebook. It's currently a closed group but Phil is on the case and will approve you rapidly.
In the meantime you can see Phil and I discuss the recent release of Vinylmation's Robots 3 series in this video below.
See you on the Facebook group!
Here is a new video for you to watch. I am a collector of Vinylmation figures, but my collection is not as extensive as my guest for this video, Phil! He is a Vinylmation connoisseur.
In this video we review the recently released Robots 3 series. It's a fun set of 12 that features a lot of the classic Disney as robots. So lets have a look, shall we?
What do you think? Are you going to be collecting these Vinylmation figures? Would you like to see me review more sets? LMK by leaving a comment below or on youtube!
Well, tomorrow I have something special! Yes, I'm back on posting Tuesday videos, but aside from that I will be taking a look at the new Vinylmation series from Disney - Robots 3! Not only will we check out all 12 of the figures in this hot new series, but I will be joined by Vinylmation expert Phil! So, please check back tomorrow! In the meantime, you can have a look at all my other videos right here on my youtube page.
If you follow me on twitter, you probably saw my tweet from Disneyland California Adventure this past weekend. I was there previewing the new Cars Land rides. I'll post some pictures and videos from my experience throughout the week on this blog, but in the meantime I'll share a few pictures of some of the cool Vinylmation figures I picked up while there.
Hello! This weekend I happened to be in the neighborhood of the Disney Store Outlet in Camarillo, so I decided to pop in and see what Vinylmation they may have. I had heard that the Disney Store Outlet does not carry Vinylmation, so I was pleasantly surprised to see there were an abundance of figures. Unfortunately, they were ones that I wasn't too interested in.
Rows of Celebrations, Occupations, Sea-Creatures and Tron packed the shelves. Only 1 or 2 styles of each series. It was slightly disappointing. I did see the 9inch/3inch Devil and Angel set. I heard that they were found on the east coast for around $20, but here it was $39.99.
I did buy a few pieces. The Devil/Angel combo, Urban 4 Ear Hat + 3inch Blue Flames ($14.95), Occupations Policeman ($4.99) and two IT Tech ($4.99ea)..and a Hulk. Yes, I have a Hulk.
What do you think? was it a good haul or was it just "ok"? Leave me a comment below and LMK what you would have bought.
Keep on collecting!
Hello! I would like to welcome PHIL! who will be doing occasional guest blogs about the news in Disney Vinylmation!
The newest Vinylmation Urban series just hit the Disney Store shelves last Friday. The series features some really cool designs by artists like Thomas Scott, Maria Clapsis, Casey Jones, and Billy Davis.
Let’s cut to the chaser. “Funhouse Mickey”. I was not too excited about this one at first. Usually, I’m all for Mickey vinyls. But this one is really funny to look at, which I guess is the point. Once I got the concept for the long-necked figure, it made more sense. It grew on me.
Everyone is always after the chaser, right? Well, not in this “case”. There are 2 variants in this series. A Golden Dragon and a Shaved Sheep. They are HOT! These are the one’s that Vinylmation folks are after. I’ve heard that there are two to a case. Either two Shaved Sheep's or two Gold Dragons (not mixed). But who really knows? I’ve also heard that some cases don’t have any variants at all. What I do know is that the “variants” are the ones to chase. So, head to your local Disney Store and go for the GOLD! Or naked Sheep... either one is awesome.
So my Disney Vinylmation collection has been growing. And one aspect of collecting Vinylmation is the trading. Collectors of these figures trade. So, to fully immerse myself in the scene, I had to join in this activity.
Friday I went to my first trading night at Disneyland! It was mostly geared toward pin traders, I am not much in to that though. I popped by for a bit to see what was going on in the Vinylmation scene.
I have to admit I did not have much to trade, I usually only buy what I like. But I did have a few extra figures that I could part with. Thankfully, LOL! I saw loads of the Disney figures that I needed to add to my collection!
When I arrived at Paradise Pier I was already late to the event. It started at 7pm and I got there at around 9pm. I was a bit taken aback by how many people were there, I really did not know what to expect, but there were a lot people! It was packed.
Virtually all of the people there were extremely cool and being new to trading, they helped me out.
Here are some pics...
While I was at Downtown Disney picking up my Cheshire Cat Vinylmation 2-pack the other day, I used my trusty iPhone to take some snaps of the cool things I saw. Lets have a look, shall we?
