Animal Kingdom; Just Part of the Mystery

I should just learn to not try and understand Disney. Brad sent us this screen shot from the

Wow, thanks Disney! Can I really buy a Mystery Animal Kingdom figure for $9.95! After I could have picked out the exact one I wanted while they were in the stores? After I could have grabbed them at discount at the outlets? After I could have added one to my cart for only $1.99 with my other online purchases. And even right now as I write this article, you can go on eBay and buy the exact one you want for less than $10 shipped. These are the kind of moves that begin to disillusion collectors. I know I’m asking too much, but maybe Disney could think about putting these suffering guys down and out of their misery? Close the flood gates and get this product, and other over-produced ones like it, off the market. If Disney is going to call this a collectible, it needs to be treated as such. Put a time limit on the shelf life of these products.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • It really is insulting to us Vinylmation collectors in the know! They did a similar thing with the NBC 3″ Vinyls in the Disney Stores. They ran a promo buy any Vinylmation and get a free NBC Vinyl. Now online the NBC Vinyls are at full price! Mark them down and get rid of them once and for all! Remove the NBC Vinyls from the Vinylmation page! I’m sick of looking at them!
