This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
Hey there Vinylmation fans. The Disney Store is filled with new products, discounts, and a wide array of products that are gone this week; all of which will be covered here in this week’s DSO Report.
Introducing
The sun burned, sandal wearing, Independence Day Holiday 2 9” Vinylmation, designed by Tyler Dumas and a LE of 500, appeared online towards the end of last week. This patriotic Vinylmation may not be available for much longer after seeing the quick disappearance of other popular 9”s. He is priced at $48.95.

The variant filled Park 6 3” series is finally available online both in Tray form, at $310.80, and Mystery Box, at $12.95.

All the Celebrations showed up this morning priced at $16.95

Also appearing today are a set of Junior Series 2 pins. A set is $25.95 and comes with 2 random pins.

As most of you probably well know, Urban 6’s made their way onto the shelves of the Disney Store Online a last week. However, after what appears to be quite an interest in them, two of the four are already gone. The remaining two single 9”s are priced at $39.95 and come with artist cards. One is the Urban 6 9”s is the Viking, by designer Doug Strayer. A LE of 800, this Vinylmation spawns from the Viking hat combo, which produced this year.

With rainbow hearts and hidden Mickeys galore, the Love Vinylmation, designed by Padla Gutierrez, is an excellent addition to the Urban 6 series and has a LE of 800.

Comebacks
Thomas Scott’s Toy Story series is also available online this week at $238.80 for a Tray and $9.95 for a Mystery Box.

Price Variants
The Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge 9” Vinylmation is discounted this week at the price of $34.99, originally $44.95.

From the Urban 4 9” Series, Memphis, or 80′s Fashion, is discounted to $29.99 from $39.95.

The Clear mystery boxes are still discounted at $5.99. An alternative option to collecting this Clear series is to treat them as another version of Create-Your-Owns and expand your creative collection.

The select group from The Animal Kingdom series; the Panther, Gorilla, Buffalo, and Bear; remain discounted at $7.99, from $9.95.

The Create Your Own 3”, all but white, remain marked down from $8.95 to $4.99.

Still Around
Although still not listed under Vinylmation, both Hyacinth and Willie can still be found online by searching for “animation” in the DSO search bar. Both are priced at $39.95. Hyacinth Hippo is designed by Thomas Scott (Lead Vinylmation Designer) and is from Disney’s Fantasia. Hyacinth is a LE of 1200.

Designed by Maria Clapsis and from the Make Mine Music segment “The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met,” Willie the Whale is a lively, singing addition to the Animation 1 collection. Willie is a LE of 1000.

Departed
Unfortunately gone is the Electric Light 9”, created by Susan Gay and a LE of 800. It is modeled off of “photographic light gauge equipment,” as DSO calls it.

Both the Urban 3 and Park 3 Mystery Boxes, discounted at $5.99, seemed to have gained popularity this week and are now gone.

The 9” Create Your Owns are still gone.

All the Disney’s Marathon 3”s are no longer online.

The Create-Your-Own Glow in the Dark originally listed online for $8.95, is not there.

The Urban series Pocket Watch, designed by Mike Sullivan and modeled after the upcoming Steam Punk series, is priced at $150.00 but isn’t there.

The 40th Anniversary Epcot 3”, Magic Kingdom 3″, and 71 3″ are not there, usually priced at $12.95.

All but Daisy and Chip from the Nerds Rock series are gone this week. They are both priced at $9.95 when for sale.

The highly anticipated Star Bright 9”, designed by Eric Caszatt and a LE of 600, from the Urban 6 series has left the DSO this week. Looking like something out of a Super Mario videogame, the purple, blue, orange, and yellow stripes and stars make it an extremely vibrant piece.

Beast, designed by Monty Maldovan and from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, can’t seem to hold its own on the DSO with simultaneous appearances and disappearances in the past few weeks. This week is unfortunately one of those disappearances. Beast is a LE of 1000.

Jack Skellington, designed by Casey Jones and from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is no longer available online. Jack is $11.95 when available.

Disappearing too this week is the Junior Keychain mystery box series, priced at $8.95.

Up and Coming
Thankfully we have a few upcoming Vinylmations in the weeks to come. All coming out on June 10th, Urban 6 finishes its 9” series and the DSO exclusive “Disney Afternoons” duo comes out. The Moai 9”, created by Casey Jones and a LE of 800, will probably release at the usual $39.95, but that is unconfirmed.

The Urban 6 Angel Devil 9”/3” combo, designed by Thomas Scott, is a LE of 1000 and will most likely be priced at the common $74.95 combo price.

Finally we have Chris Chapman’s much anticipated LE 1000 Goof Troop 3”/3” combo. This is an online exclusive and will likely sell out quickly, so timing will be everything. However, the DSO isn’t known for its timely releases, so we’ll have to see what time exactly they’ll be released. I’m unsure of the price on this combo.

That’s it for this week’s DSO Report. As always, feel free to leave questions/comments about sections you want explained further, product descriptions/explanations, or simply anything miscellaneous.

  • I thought the LE of Independence Day Holiday 2 9” Vinylmation is 800, On a good note, I see they’re releasing this at Disneyland on June 17th.

    • According to the Disney Store’s description it is a LE of 500, which is probably why sales are limited to two per customer.

  • UPDATE: The Marie, Minnie Mouse, and Tinkerbell Cupcakes are for sale on the DSO for $11.95 as of this posting. I’m unsure of whether the others will appear online or not.
