What: A ticketed trading event for pins and Vinylmation. The year’s largest pin and Vinylmation event. The Vinylmation day will include trading
games, a guest trading area, even specific vinyls for purchase, and
event vinyl as a gift, artist signings, upcoming figures on display and a
presentation announcing upcoming Vinylmation. This year’s theme is Disney Villains. The Story Goes:

“In a far away land there lived a wicked and vain Queen who wanted more power. While pouring over ancient spell books, she discovered an incantation that, when performed on the darkest of days – Friday the 13th – could bring together thirteen of the most evil Disney villains known only as “The 13.” To cast this spell, the Queen must use a powerful, supernatural object – a magic mirror – to transport “The 13” from across time to the present day. As luck would have it, Friday the 13th will take place in September this year! The Queen decided this would be the perfect day to cast the spell.

Let’s fast forward to September. As the newly assembled Villains are hashing out their nefarious plans, the Villains intentionally break the mirror and hide the thirteen shards. Now the mirror can never be used against them, as it is the only object that can send them home. Lucky for us, an imaginative purple dragon named Figment overheard their plotting and asks Mickey Mouse for help. Along with five of their trusted friends known as the “Lucky 7,” Mickey Mouse and Figment devise a plan to stop “The 13.” They must reassemble the broken shards to send the villains back to their rightful places in time.”

EVENT VINYLMATION
I love the inclusion of the Beagle Brothers. They don’t get on much merchandise. I’m a little surprise they do not have hats. I’m also a stickler when ears are not used well. But they are designed beautifully and are a must have.

 

Great idea for a combo set. Wonderful artwork on Dr. Facilier and I would expect no less from Ron Cohee. The hat looks great and I love the splash of color on the ears. The juniors are a nice companions, fit in with the story and are expertly designed on the 1.5 inch canvas.

 

This is also a great idea for a combo. You get Mim in her normal form and in one of her transformations. Great artwork.

 

This is the least impressive piece of the Reflections event bunch. The face and horns look good, but I just don’t think Maleficent was the right choice for the Minnie platform. i do like how the bow gives the artist the chance to draw that straight line across, but it is an awful lot of yellow up there. For some reason the Minnie body comes across as a dress and not a robe and just looks odd.

 

An absolutely wonderful variant follow up to Sully’s original Popcorns figure. I wish this one was the original design released.

 

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!

  • Love the Beagle Boys too. Didn’t think about them missing hats, but that would be perfect! They will go nicely with the Disney Afternoon Ducktales set.

    I can live without Maleficient.

    Dr Facilier is better than the V2 version. How cool would it be if his green color were Glow in the Dark green? I like the little Voodoo Jrs.

    Wish they would have made a Mike Wazowski and put he and Scarer Sully in a combo pack. Definitely will get one of these.

    Other than Scarer Sulley, all the vinyls or combos need to be about 15% less. All they did was mark them up to counteract the Passholder and Visa discounts. Sad, sad!!

  • Oh, forgot Madame Mim. While I can leave the reg Mim, I do like the Dragon variant. Looks so true to the cartoon. Ron Cohee does rock.

  • Facillier and Mim are fantastic, Maleficent is still awful, and the Beagle Boys are ok but with any hats or accessories and bland art work, they’re certainly not worth $35. For that price I’ll make my own.

  • Why Sully? He is not a villain…. Maybe too many of the orginal molds were created and this is a way to sell them. Good luck with the $27 price tag.

  • I am confused about the registration prices and details for the pin event. Isn’t it usually one ticket price for BOTH pin days and not separate tickets for each of the two pin days (I know the vinylmation day is usually a separate ticket)? Does anyone think this was a mistake on the event coordinator’s part? It makes more sense to me that the $113 package would be for the entire event (both pins and vinylmation) since it says you can buy items from the entire catalog, and will be able to trade for pins and vinylmation. Can anyone provide me with any clarification? Thanks.

    • It appears Friday is both a Pin and Vinylmation day, Saturday solely pins and Sunday solely Vinylmations.
