I was able to get four of the princesses-Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White and Rapunzel, but that was because I stayed up to catch them online (except for Rapunzel, who was a gift from my bf). I am a little miffed by the randomness over who will get one in store and who will not. I'd hate to wait in store and not get one.

With that being said, while I think they are lovely, I am going to pass as I am not a huge fan of these ladies-though Mother Gothel does look splendid.

Good luck to everyone who hopes to get one!

TDS cast are not "allowed" to buy items and resell them on Ebay. Wish I knew what store you worked at..... And to brag about it on a public message board?

So, what store DO you work at, I am twitching to make a phone call. I am a TDS CM too, and you embarrassed me with your post and your actions. It is not part of our job to rip off guests on Ebay.

WTG Pat! Was not sure how to berate a supposedly fellow "CM". Got me really upset - glad she does not work at my store!

Anyhoo...I think the villian collection looks pretty cool hopefully the "better" way to sell the dolls won't bite us on the butt each Monday!

I'f I'm going to stick to one or two, I'll aim for Ursula and the Evil Queen
Ha ha! I caved and pre-ordered all 6. Couldn't help myself

Anyone else pre-ordered?

ordered all 6 as well so I don't have to get up each week and order them individually - also I am hoping since they are a set they will all be numbered the same like they did for the sets of designer princess dolls sold at D23

I pre-ordered the set and bought all the mugs. I have been selling so many of my possessions on eBay and saving, but I still feel guilty about the purchase. I hope that our orders go through and that we won't get e-mails saying that we aren't going to get our dolls after all, like what happened with some customers during the princess fiasco.

As a former TDS castmember it also makes me crazy to see a post like this. However, if the item was purchased WITHOUT THE CASTMEMBER DISCOUNT then the poster is no different than any other person who scoops up items and sells them for profit......

Thumbs down Dolls

For those that pre-ordered, I hope your order went through. I guess there were only 250 sets to pre-order and they were sold out in 10-20mins.

I have been reading that many pre-ordered and got the confirmation, but the orders never went through and they are out of luck. To me, doesn't make sense to pre-order so few sets w/ a run of 13000 of each doll.

I hope my order goes through... I'd be gutted if it didn't.

I ordered mine in the UK and it says theres a LE of 350 sets over here.

No Fiasco This Time....????

I collect all the Limited Edition dolls for my Disney obsessed daughters (ok, all of us are Disney obsessed but what's the point in having kids if you can't use them as a cover for your Disney addiction!! ).

The Designer princesses was something of a fiasco and to be honest, I don't see the villains series being any different which is why I bought our sets in the pre-sale. The edition size is bigger, but unlike some who think that there will be less demand for villains, I actually think the demand will be higher. From what I've been reading in the collector forums and fan pages, a lot of people have been dying for a villains set of collectors stuff for years.

I think most of the people who collected the Princess series will probably want this set too but you'll also have the villain collectors to add to the mix.

The US had 750 (rumour has it!) sets to sell in the pre-order. The UK had 350 (published on the site) and the assumption is that Germany and France will probably have the same number of sets as the UK. That means that 1800 of the dolls are gone in pre-order sets alone.

A set sold on eBay last night for $1200, so the demand certainly seems to be there. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with the lottery/raffle fiasco in the stores because according to the Disney Press Release each store (and there are around 200 stores worldwide that will get dolls) is only guaranteed 6 dolls.
I hope it doesn't turn into a fiasco for those who are trying to get them, but I fear that it might which is why I took no chances!

Exclamation Dolls

Well, so much for patience and common sense. Checked e-bay are there are a bunch of completed autions now. People have been paying $140-$160 +/- per doll and $1,000.00 per set. And people wonder why the e-bay sellers ect try to buy up the LE items, people pay the inflated prices.

actually none have sold for $1,200 it just looks that way when you look at completed auctions but if you click the item to see the details you will see that a best offer was accepted instead - still going high at the $900 - $1,000 marks
