    Re: Vinylmation - I don't get it.

    I'll be honest, I don't get Vinylmation at all either. They don't seem at all visually or aesthetically pleasing or interesting to me--but obviously they appeal to others, so my opinion's just that--IMHO.

    I think with anything, be it Vinylmation, pins, Beanie Babies, whatever, you always have the people who go all out and get *everything,* the ones who simply casually collect, and the ones who just can't see the appeal. It's how it goes.

    I do have a pin collection, but I don't trade, I don't buy from anywhere other than the Disneyland shops, and I just buy maybe 5 pins a year. I started collecting pins in general years ago because they were small, portable and inexpensive.
    Merida looks like this. Not a Barbie doll!

      Vinylmation??? Pins ??? Could be worse. Duffy the bear and his never-ending collection of "outfits". At least Disney fans seem to be on to that money sucking (scam)...

        There's nothing to "get." Different aesthetics appeal to different people, and always have. It's why two different people might decorate their houses in two different styles, or wear different types of jewelry.

Ironically - they think vinylmations are stupid.
          Yes but do they think Vinylmation pins are stupid? Haha

            Disney fans aren't onto the other money sinking scams apparently

            Like I said before there really isn't anything to get people like collecting them nothing more to them than that. There is no secret it's like anything else anyone collects.

              Whats to get? You like them or you don't. Just interests some people and not others.

                To the point. Just the way I like it.

                I only have one which is a Mickey figure (are they all Mickey?), with Malificent as a dragon on it.

                I also collect Funko POP dolls. Like the style and makes the top of my desk look festive
