Hi there VinylNation!
I've lurked on the site for a long time and found it time and again a great source for Vinylmation news. I decided I should get the full experience and also participate here on the forums, as often as time permits!
I've been collecting Vinylmation since Park Series #1 was new - so yup - I'm one of those people the newer collectors hate with those full sets from back in the day. What really got me into Vinylmation was the blank figures, because I love to create custom art. In fact I bought Park #1 at the time because the blank figures were sold out and I at least wanted SOME Vinylmation to start a collection with. (Oh - and for anyone wondering, my first blind-boxed figure was the Balloon Chaser!) I've since started creating customs for both myself, my friends as well as for commissions (though I don't want to talk about that right now because I see the rule is 50 posts and 14 days registered, so I'm going to respect that!) I hope in the future to be able to share my customs with the group!
But I'm not just here because of customs- I DO like to collect official Vinylmation figures too (mostly Park related) AND I'm a huge theme park nerd, so I hope to contribute to those sub forums on VinylNation as well. I've had a little trouble getting my account to stay logged in since registering yesterday - but it LOOKS like it's working right now. Fingers crossed that it was just a glitch and I'm good to go now! I'm excited to start posting more often!
