  • i agree. over signing? oh no everybody, the ebay market is crashing! sorry. i say: get over it. i’m a collector… i’m like you. I get these because i WANT them… if someday we get rid of them… then we get rid of them. it’s nice to have the LE or signed one…. because i want them. sorry.

    Like i said to someone else: “yes. i harp on the site. as some one who works in the web, and has worked on direct web based platforms for companies like PwC, Microsoft, GM, Tyco, etc… the site is an abomination! if (i currently have just recently switched jobs to a more calm and consistent schedule type job) we as a company had delivered a product like the Disney Store Online…. We would’ve been fired from the job and anyone in their company who had worked on that project probably would have been fired… a cart shouldn’t empty itself while you’re trying to check out. it should be consider out of inventory (for a limited time) if inside a cart. and it doesn’t explain why i can order something and it just not arrive… then be told it was out of stock even though i paid for the shipping on it (which can’t be refunded). or when they just send it to wrong address (more than once). or that information entered properly is not valid? i was afraid that little tidbit was going to cost me Doug this morning. That is not a smooth running site. like i said. i’ve made at least 6 orders, never a one had a smooth process. and several more never made it cause i took 5 minutes to check out other merch, even though the CYO was in my cart. ”

    I will say, that i hear a lot of people complaining because they got up late and couldn’t buy. that’s…. not disney’s fault. we know demand. and Doug attracts a wider range then disney fans. i’m not surprised it sold out. it’s gonna happen. expect it. the only room to complain is if you GOT a confirmation and then a “sorry, my bad” email. i’ve received that too many times from Disney.

  • Yes!! over signing… I don’t buy items to sell on the ebay but have bought a few items from the ebay and I buy what I like and am willing to pay for it if need be. As with any collectable there are going to be items that are harder to get and will go on the top shelf of peoples collections because they are rare. If there was an unlimited supply of every item they would be toys and not collectable and maybe 30 years down the road they may be collectable. I personally don’t care if there are people that profit from selling things on the ebay, it just makes the the hunt more fun for me since in order to get one I may have to get up really early try to be first in line or maybe I need to have a family member help order something online so I have a better chance of getting one or I can wait and pay the price on the ebay or hope to make a trade.

    (scream)THE EBAY IS NOT GOING AWAY!! So get over it. If you don’t like the ebay don’t use it. I have paid over what I thought was fair because I like an item and I have also paid very little and got a great deal. No one is ever going to be completely happy but I think Disney knows what they are doing and they have created an item that people love thus they have created a winner…

    Now as far as the over signing goes I would rather they get the other artists to sign more so that there are more signed items out there so more people can get them but there are not as many Casey Jones items and it retains the collectable value and thus they will have more prestige.

  • New mold!? You Mickey Head new mold? Argh!!!

    I’ve seen a couple cool designs, but original mold is SO much better than new mold. There are so many new vinylmations that I’m seeing that look so bland with the new mold. The face lines, nose, and buttons are such a huge part of making all these vinylmations look so cool.

    You’re breaking my heart here!

    “Otherwise, great show guys!”
