I can hear my wallet weeping already

As most of you know, Disney's Vinylmation centered on the concept of customizing a vinyl figure shaped like Mickey Mouse. Then, last year brought the Park Starz, literally breaking the mold with each of the series' twelve entries having its own unique shape. The figures were based on characters found in Disney parks (hence the name), some slightly more obscure than others. Included in series 1 were Giant Squid from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Yeti from Expedition Everest, Figment from Journey Into Imagination, Bride from The Haunted Mansion, Big Al from The Country Bear Jamboree, Abraham Lincoln from Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, Tiki Room Bird from Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean, Icy Gator from Blizzard Beach, Robot Butler from Horizons, Doll from ''it's a small world'', and a mystery chaser figure. They were a big hit and sold out quickly.

Fortunately, series 1 was recently been spotted back in stock at Disney's online store. I finally have another chance to try and get Big Al! He is my Moby Dick. Er, anyways, you can order one blind boxed figure online (he may be available at the parks but I am not sure) for US$18.95. They are a tad more expensive than Vinylmations generally are (usually retailing around US$12.95) but these ones are more detailed and quite a bit more special, don't you think?

Is there a character you are hoping to get?
