Vinylmation with a Hint of Pixar

Vinylmation Park Series #2Now don’t get too excited thinking that I broke down and started collecting the 9″ Vinylmations.  A $39.95 price tag is still too high for me when they bring out six new toys per series, but I do believe they make great gifts.  This one I purchased for a friend who collects the Seagulls from Finding Nemo.  This Vinylmation is designed by Maria Clapsis and is limited to 550 copies.

Finding Nemo Seagulls' VinylmationVinylmation and ButtonVinylmation ButtonNemo Seagull CardWatch out when purchasing larger Vinylmations.  Each series offers a special 9″ Vinylmation.  Park Series #1 had a Haunted Mansion edition and Park Series #2 has a Mr. Incredible edition.  Both of these Vinylmations include a small 3″ Vinylmation that compliments the design and cannot be bought within the 3″ trays.  These special editions will cost you $74.95.  It is not a mistake.

Vinylmations Park Series #2

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 8, 2009

*ALERT: SPOILERS*

After a few weeks back in PA, I anxiously awaited my newly purchased Vinylmation Park Series #2 tray.  During my time away, I kept from serching for the new batch online and was successful with keeping the Mystery Chaser a surprises.

It seems as though with each new batch, the creators learn new ways to package the small Mickey Mouse inspirations for better handling and for more surprise.  Each of the trays I purchased, including the Park Series #1 and the Urban Series #1 were different in their own ways.

My first tray I bought at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  The tray was already opened, but no individual boxes were missing.  My friends and I opened the tray randomly so I cannot comment on the arrangement of the Vinylmations.  The matching card was in the box outside of the wrapped vinyl toy.  This gave the new owner a sneak peek at what was inside.

The Urban Series #1 was a new tray purchased at The Art of Disney in Downtown Disney.  The box was unopened and wrapped in plastic. When opening the boxes I began to notice a pattern forming, but did not document it.  The ID cards were now wrapped with the vinyl toys and only the card with the glow-in-the-dark Vinylmation had a small plastic wrapper.

The newest tray was also purchased in Downtown Disney and was securely wrapped.  After learning my lesson with the first two trays, I decided to capture the formation of the Vinylmations (I do not want to claim this arrangement as official).  If you look at my gallery of pictures, I included images of the Vinylmations on top of the individual box they were removed from.  I found it quite interesting that most Vinylmations were next to their mate except of course the Mystery Chaser (which is by itself), the LGM and the Monkeys.

*If you happen to purchase a Vinylmation and remember its location in the box, please let me know if it matches.  I would be very interested to see if this is the same from box to box.*

Overall, I really enjoy this series, including the 9″ Vinylmations.  I have included my guesses at the individual Mickeys.  I am somewhat stumped by the Fish Bowl (Maybe The Living Seas) and the Dalmation (Fire House).  If you have any suggestions or comments please let me know.

I look forward to the next series in the collection which I have seen boards for both the Holiday Series #1 and the Urban Series #2.  The next series should be released in August.  Hopefully this will also include the next Cast Exclusive, an anime Guest Relations Cast Member.

Take a look at my past Vinylmation articles.
