BIG NEWS: While the Club-A-Rama v1.0 exhausted the best of the best moldsets that I personally own, we have not nearly exhausted all of the best surviving retired moldsets. There is an undisclosed location in Florida that owns in excess of some SIX HUNDRED (600) original moldsets, including some GREAT GREAT retired moldsets from the Mold-A-Rama days that haven't been seen in many decades. MOLDVILLE is ecstatic to announce that it has arranged with Replication Devices to explore the best of their 600 moldsets -- and continue on with their ground-breaking CLUB-A-RAMA for ONE MORE FULL YEAR (52 MORE weeks!! None will be a duplicate of any that we've already done. I have seen the planned list of 52 figures to be reissued and believe me, there are many many FANTASTIC figures in store for the second year of the Club-A-Rama (affectionately known as "Club-A-Rama v2.0"! Invoices will be sent out in the coming weeks to existing Club-A-Rama members for the 1st quarter of the SECOND year of the Club-A-Rama! If you want in for this second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - email MoldvilleMachine@gmail.com today!


If you haven't joined Moldville's $5 a figure CLUB-A-RAMA v2.0 yet, join now before you miss any more great vintage re-issued souvenir figures.  Like these:


1972l vintage "Disneyland Toy Factory" made by the MOLD-A-RAMA company in 1963, painstakingly preserved and restored in its original form, inside and out, is about to come online by MOLDVILLE.

 

This machine is a beauty. It has the original red/yellow deck with original Disney posed wire figures in various positions about deck, e.g., pushing the mold halves closed, riding the dispensing shovel, pointing to the finished figure, etc. The original RED Disney delivery door is beautifully intact over the delivery box.

 

This particular machine was built just before the '64 NY World's Fair, and was last used in 1976. When retired it was producing Pluto Disney figures, the Pluto mold being on the machine and some original old-wax Pluto figures being found strewn about inside the machine.

 

The MOLDVILLE Mold-A-Rama machine has many, many, many original molds with it. (Not the wax figures;  I'm talking about the aluminum mold halves themselves that push together to make the MAR figures.)

 

For those inquiring minds, the best information is that the Disneyland Toy Factory Mold-A-Rama machines were NOT ever at Disneyland. But they most certainly WERE at the 1964 New York World's Fair, used to mold various Disney characters, and of course the '64 NY World's Fair symbol- the UNISPHERE!

 

Question is: What to do with this vintage, beautiful, all-original, operating machine?

 

While this thought can change depending upon interest, the initial idea is to make figures for those interested, change the mold each week, and offer a 'subscription' for a years' worth of figures. That would be 52 figures, perhaps shipped monthly, including some otherwise commonly seen figures, some not-so-commonly seen figures, and most importantly some EXTREMELY RARELY SEEN figures. While the exact figures to be molded will not be disclosed ahead of time, the rarest molds to be used include molds used at:

     '62 World's Fair in SEATTLE

     '64 World's Fair in NEW YORK

     '67 EXPO in MONTREAL

     Mann's Chinese Theatre in HOLLYWOOD at movie premiers

 

Each week, on Moldville Mondays, I hope to post a VIDEO clip of the Moldville Mold-A-Rama making that week's featured figure. All those who are subscribed will receive that figure (and subsequent figures). To provide incentive to subscribe beforehand and not wait until a desirable ultra-rare figure is announced, each new figure will be molded only for those who are already subscribed-and only one per subscription. I hope to provide the look and feel-and excitement-of discovering a Mold-A-Rama machine and the magical figure it brings to life.

 

If/when I get REALLY up to speed (and gain sufficient interest), I may provide some original AUDIO tracks from the Mold-A-Rama machines circa 1960s. This audio was output from a tape player either as an 'attract' mode to randomly attract a passerby, or continuously.

 

The Moldville Mold-A-Rama is based in Washington, DC, in a location probably 500+ miles from the closest operating Mold-A-Rama machine.

 

Please, PASS THE WORD! Let me have your thoughts at MoldvilleMoldarama@gmail.com. The more interest there is, the more likely this is to happen! And soon!

 

The subscription price is looking like it will be set at a mere $5 per week (plus nominal monthly shipping.) Remember, you'll want to subscribe quickly and not miss out on any Moldville Mondays. I plan to start with a bang! If you miss any given week because you haven't yet subscribed, you will have missed your opportunity to own that week’s figure, which very well may have been one of the many extremely rare figures.

This is all about FUN for me (I hope it stays that way!)  While a number of these molds would easily sell for big bucks on ebay if just one or two of them were listed, as a recession buster (and to pass on the fun), the subscription price is set at a mere $5 per weekly souvenir figure (plus a nominal $6 per MONTH (4 or 5 figures shipped together) shipping/handling to the continental US.)

JOIN NOW not to miss out on any MOLDVILLE fridays.  We started with a bang - and have no plans to let up!  If you miss any given week because you haven't yet subscribed, you will have missed your opportunity to own that week's figure (which very well may have been one of the many extremely rare figures.) 

MOLDVILLE reserves the right to cancel the membership of any member of the Club-A-Rama at any time, with any fees paid for future figures refunded in full.
