Vinylmation Monsters University Case Layout

A new Disney-Pixar movie comes but once a year, and this year Disney is celebrating the occasion in style–with a full, dedicated Disney Vinylmation Monsters University series! I’ve been too sick this weekend to get out to see the movie myself–much less think about tracking down the Vinylmation figures–but Marie was kind enough to send in the case layout from the sealed Vinylmation Monsters University case she picked up at Walt Disney World on launch day!

UPDATE 7/17/2013: We’ve now added a third verified case layout to help you complete your Monsters University collection!

Vinylmation Monsters University Series Case Tray

I’m really glad that Disney decided to give Monsters University its own series of Vinylmation figures. Though neither movie was the biggest success (certainly not critically), I was always really disappointed that Brave and Cars 2 each only got an open edition two-pack release instead of a full-fledged Vinylmation blind box series of their own. Monsters University is a sure-fire blockbuster, and I’m happy to see Disney knew fans would want loads of Vinylmation figures from it. Way to go, Disney!

I’ve seen the original Monsters Inc. about a million times (maybe a million and one), so I figured writing up some thoughts on the Vinylmation Monsters University series would be cake. Then I actually looked at the figures and realized I only knew who four out of the twelve figures in the set actually were (who could forget George Sanderson, after all?).

Vinylmation Monsters University Case LayoutAs it is, I don’t have a whole lot to say about this series just yet. Disney certainly chose some very colorful and diverse characters for this series, and I’m wondering if this is the first time we’ve ever had a parent and a child in the same Vinylmation series (Mrs. Squibbles and Squishy)? It’s certainly the first time I can remember it happening!

Disney Vinylmation Monsters University Chaser Terri and TerryThe Monsters University Chaser is Terri & Terry, a two-headed classmate (or is it classmates?) of Sully and Mike at Monsters University. While the idea of putting each of the two heads on one of the figure’s ears sounds really clever on paper, looking at the figure and then looking at images of Terri & Terry, I’m not entirely sure that Disney has really managed to execute the character(s) all that great.

Disney Vinylmation Monsters University Archie Scare Pig Variant Figure

There is one variant in the Vinylmation Monsters University series, and it is evidently incredibly rare. There have only been a handful of the variant Scare Pig Archie figures that have been listed on ebay at all, and the absolute cheapest one sold has been for $150. I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I don’t feel any burning desire to own the Vinylmation Scare Pig variant figure myself–and with rarity and prices like that, I kind of hope I don’t end up wanting him!

Given the way that Disney has been releasing cases lately, I would expect that there are several different case layouts for the Monsters University Vinylmation series in addition to this one. There should be at least one additional case layout containing the Archie variant, so make sure to only buy one blind box from a sealed tray and try to match it up to this case map before buying a bunch of boxes. And if this is your first time using a case layout, please read the article on A Word About Case Shuffling first–it may save you quite a bit of money!

Vinylmation Monsters University Case Layout — 19 Comments

  1. There is indeed another layout with Mike having three figures instead of Sulley. I tried using this layout map to get Terri & Terry from a fresh case that was not shuffled at my local Dinsey Store and it did not match up with the case that I had in front of me :(

  2. Sorry for the delay, but my box layout was as follows. I had 3 Mike Wizowki’s, and they were all in the first three spots.
    There was no Archie Variant. I have only put the first name, but I know you will know who they are.

    1st Row : Mike W, Mike W, Mike W, Carrie, Don, Randall
    2nd Row : Art, Sully, George, Terrie (Chaser), Carrie, Art
    3rd Row : Jonny, Archie, Mrs Squibbles, Sully, Squishy, Mrs Squibbles
    4th Row : Randall, Squishy, Johnny, George, Archie, Don

  3. Dang, now we know there is at least another since I pulled the chaser from a new box win a different position. ugh

  4. I got the chaser!! The box I have was different from these two layouts. It’s in the very right of the first row, the right corner.

  5. my chaser from a newly opened tray was in 1st column, 2nd row from the front (where sully is on layout type 1).

    looks like they might have gotten smart and are really shuffling them up??

  6. I love the new collection and I have two so far hoping to get another tomorrow I luckily have Randal and scare pig I think there good because scare pig has spikey horns and Randal has glasses so if one of the boxes happens to be open because someone has fiddled with it I could feel the foil bag to see if it had horns or glasses. I would never open it if it wasn’t open though because I just think its unfair on the other people that want a box witch has not been tampered with. Hoping for Mrs. Squibbles
