On July 23rd, 2014, Disney/Pixar released this fantastic group of six Pixar villain themed Vinylmations, sold exclusively at this year's San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC)! Each character is a limited edition of only 480 made, so I'm incredibly thrilled to have had the opportunity to get each one.
These launched the "Vinylmation Villains: Series 5" collection, which then continued at Disney Stores on August 19th with eight additional blind box characters (See post HERE), for a total of 14 Pixar villains in this series altogether.
The six characters in this lineup of SDCC exclusives include: Incrediboy (The Incredibles), Chef Skinner (Ratatouille), Hopper (A Bug's Life), Stinky Pete (Toy Story 2), Zurg (Toy Story 2) and Randall (Monsters Inc.). At the convention, they retailed for $10.00.
The side of the box (seen below) was the first peek we got at the eight additional characters that were released at Disney Stores and the DisneyStore.com about a month later (again, if you missed it, see that post HERE).
I'm SO thankful to my incredible wife Brita who gave me these this morning as a Halloween present! It was unbelievably generous of her. These were the perfect Halloween present idea since they are villains (inherently pretty scary) and especially because of the insides of the boxes (seen below), which sport some Halloween colors and included written phrases such as "there's no turning back now" as you open them up. Brilliant!
Ok, lets get to checking out these amazing Vinylmations in more detail now:

There we have it! Six very well designed characters that are a very exciting additions to my Pixar Vinylmations collection. These do not disappoint in the slightest.
For the most part, the only way to get these at this point is on eBay. Individually, they basically sell between $30-$80. As sets of six, they usually are listed for about $200-$230 (so yah, not cheap, but better than when they were first starting to pop up on eBay for over $300-$400 for all six).

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a fun, festive, spooky and safe Halloween. Be sure to check back here daily as more items from my Pixar collection will be added soon.
