    Re: D-Street and Vinylmation

    I bought a Vinylmation as a little souvenir on my last day at WDW last year. I was mildly underwhelmed by it. It didn't seem as impressive as I thought. Still, it was a unique little item. Worth it for one, but I don't know if I'd collect them like pins.

    My hubbie likes the Goofy one... I'd rather pay the $40. for the large character to ensure he got it than take the chance with the small lucky-dip ones.

    The Vinylmation thing isn't sitting well with me either. They just look like someone was hallucinating and decided to market the things.

    Re: D-Street and Vinylmation

    I actually like the vinylmations... it's fun to see which you get, and a lot of the designs are creative. I especially like how they make designs of characters and attractions that you might not see merchandise besides pins. It's also fun to find ways to display them. Mix the colors, hide them in your disney collection, do anything you want!

    I agree, but the mystery characters can work out to be very expensive and could prove to be difficult to swap.

    They are different. I like them. I don't like them all, nor do I care for the escalating price tag, but I like them. I have a little vinylmation army in my living room, guarding all my Disney movies. I also have a satchel of ones to trade when I go to the parks or DTD.

    I just got back from a twelve day trip to WDW. I bought as well as traded many vinyls. I came home with around 40 new ones.

    Hello. My name is Todd and I have a vinylmation problem.
    I'm fairly certain that given a tiara and a nice cape, I could save the world--one sequin at a time.

    But that's the fun of it. Just like mystery pins. Yes, a little more expensive, but there's a thrill in the chase. Also, trading and buying are getting easier and easier with not only ebay, but other trading communities, as well as trading in the parks.

    I started with one vinyl, just as a souvenir from the D23 expo which I couldn't attend... now I think I have around 32 3", 3 9", and 1 Jr. They really grew on me, and the designs seem to keep getting better! (retro epcot!!)

    I love Vinylmation and pin trading. I love the thrill of not know what you are going to get and now you can trade them in the parks and resorts. I especially like the ones they are releasing for WDW's 40th. At first i did not like them when i saw them then on one trip i said well i will just buy one and that turned into buying 6 that trip and i now have 17 vinylmation and 3 vinylmation jr.

    Re: D-Street and Vinylmation

    I've said it before I don't get Vinylmation collection fad. That is OK we have our own things but this one is a head scratcher. I don't collect pins, but for the most part Pins won't deteriorate unless they are made from poor quality steel, then rust will poke out over the years.

    Vinyl is another story. While it is on earth likely forever yet Vinyl deteriorates over time and not that long either. The Polymer breaks down and causes Vinyl to get gummy and or cracks. Collectibles generally have to be in good condition to trade or sell. To me anyhow beyond their oddness to me, the longevity of the product is a drawback to investing money in these collectibles.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: D-Street and Vinylmation

    I love vinlymation. I've only gotten a couple I really didn't like. I just made a aeries of trades until I ended up with what I wanted. Trading is a cinch since the stores have trader boxes.

    Re: D-Street and Vinylmation

    I will admit, I do collect vinylmation and really enjoy a number of the figures, like the "Parks" series. They constant bring to mind my trips to Disney and build excitement for upcoming ones. They are displayed at my home and the office. My biggest complaint is the price. It is alot to spend when you really have no idea what figure you are buying. It would be easier if you knew which figure you were purchasing.
