Disney Store Online Report: 5/15/11

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
Hey there Vinylmation fans. Welcome to the second edition of the DSO (Disney Store Online) report. In the past 2 days, Disney has made a few significant changes to their online store including posting some larger Vinylmation sets as well as price reductions. In case you missed out on the first DSO report, which can be found here: DSO Report: 5/11/11, I’ll recap the different sections again below.

This report certainly won’t list every product on the online store, being that there’s upwards of 80-100 regularly, but will rather focus on a few major categories of Vinylmation. “Introducing” is recently released Vinylmations that are available online. Next are “Price Variants,” which note both the beginning and ending of Vinylmations on sale. The occasional “Comebacks” are Vinylmations that Disney is re-entering into the online marketplace and although a rarity, are fun to find and don’t stay up for long! “Sellouts” are those items that Disney has listed as for sale but are unfortunately listed as sold out once selected. The “Departed” section are Vinylmations that have recently been taken off the DSO. Lastly, “Up and Comings” are Vinylmations that are planned for online release in the upcoming weeks. With all that said, here is this week’s DSO.

New to the DSO are the Sea Creature individual open boxes, all of which are available for $9.95.

Urban 6, also making its introduction recently, is up with individual mystery boxes, at $11.95 each. Still no trays as of yet.

Muppets 2 stepped onto the online shelves with both individual mystery boxes, at $11.95, and the usual 24 tray, for $286.80.

The first of the Urban 6 9” also made it into the store with the Gumball Machine 3” combo for $74.95.

The Junior Keychain Series 3 mystery boxes are also now up online for $8.95.

This week’s Comebacks include an entire series as well as a few topper combos. The entire open box TRON series is back online at $9.95.

The whole open box The Nightmare Before Christmas series (including the chaser Pumpkin King!) is also up once again for $11.95 each.

Both the Urban 5 & 6 Topper Combos, with two-tone Mickeys, as well as the Animation 1 Topper Combo, with Simba, are available for $24.95.

The unique Create-Your-Own Glow in the Dark 3” Vinylmation is up online once again for $8.95.

The Ticket Book LE 7 piece set, priced at $99.95, is surprisingly back up online as well at the end of this week, but probably not for long!

Lastly for the Comebacks, the 3” Figure and Pocket Watch combo, modeled similarly to the upcoming Steamboat collection, is again available at $150.00.
The Sushi set, priced at $99.95, is back after being sold out on the day of it’s release, May 13th.
Price Variants
The Price Variants for this week include a select group from The Animal Kingdom series (the Panther, Gorilla, Buffalo, and Bear), which dropped from $9.95 to $7.99.
The Create Your Own 3”, all but white (yellow is now available, unlike earlier this week), are marked down from $8.95 to $4.99.
Newly discounted today are the Urban 3” individual mystery boxes, priced down from $9.95 to $5.99.
Sell Outs
Thankfully this week Disney is up to date on all its products! There are no Sell Outs as of writing this report.
Still Around
The few Still Around figures that are left are the open box Flag series, all but U.S.A., for $9.95 and the open box 2011! series, at $11.95.
The Marathon 3” figure that was on sale last week is no longer available online.
The U.K. flag from the Flags series is also no longer available.
Sadly, those of you looking for a Park 5 tray will no longer find one online as they have disappeared for the moment.
Those creative Vinylmation fans out there may disappointed to hear that all of the 9” Create Your Owns are now missing from the DSO as well.
Up and Coming
This month, scheduled for May 20th, is the release of additional Urban 6 9” figures. These can be found under the 9″ Urban 6 Vinylmation: The Complete List post. The solo 9”s will be priced at $39.95.
That about wraps up this edition of the DSO Report Vinylmation fans. Please feel free to leave questions/comments about sections you want explained further, product descriptions, or anything miscellaneous. Till next time.
