As of 12:35 AM PST/3:35 AM EST the Lion King Vinylmation series is online! Compared to Genie’s late release these guys are right on time! Unfortunately the print run is smaller for the 9″/Jr. combo and is divided up between various physical Disney Store locations and online store. Due to the standard 1,000 LE and 1,500 LE print runs this may be the most elusive limited edition set for this year. Here are the following locations that will have the 9″/Jr. Rafiki/Baby Simba combo available for sale as listed by the official Vinylmation blog:
- Chandler Fashion Center – Chandler, AZ
- Mission Viejo, CA
- Montebello, CA
- Fashion Valley – San Diego, CA
- Santa Monica, CA
Stockston Street – San Francisco, CA(sold out due to advance release on 08/27/11)
- Westfield at Culver City, CA
- International Plaza – Tampa, FL
- Perimeter – Atlanta, GA
- North Michigan Avenue – Chicago, IL
- State Street – Chicago, IL
- Roosevelt Field – Garden City, NJ
- Freehold Raceway – Freehold, NJ
- Times Square – New York City, NY

EDIT: As of 12:40 AM PST it appears that 9″/Jr. Rafiki/Baby Simba combo could not be added to the shopping cart. At 12:55 AM PST I was able to add the item to my cart. Around 1:00 AM PST the item was once again “could not be purchased at this time”. At this rate your best bet is to hit your local Disney Store that is carrying this one because he’ll be gone this week!

There are limits with all orders – two of each item per order. Remember you can get free shipping with any order over $75 by using the code SHIPTODAY and get 15% off your purchase with EXPO2011. For all your other Vinylmation shopping needs try PARK25 for 25% off your purchase and this promotion lasts till Wednesday (it does not work on any of the Lion King Vinylmation so your best bet is to use EXPO2011 for those).
It also seemed DisneyStore.com was a bit trigger happy releasing the series online as there were a few mistakes listed on the item’s information pages.
