Hello, I am a 23 years old brazilian female that lives in Germany with her 25 year old german husband.
I always loved disney movies, and april this year I went to Disneyland Paris for the second time in my life. I knew I wanted some Star Wars souvenirs and when I found the vinylmations I fell in love. I bought 4 and got c3-po, r2d2 and a stormtrooper. I also got an extra c3-po that i decided to keep to give to one of my best friends.
For years now I wanted to start a toy art collection, and now I found vinylmation I know this is it! but I don't want a HUGE collection. less than a 100 for sure. 100 tops. I want to be able to display them nicely and chose only vinylmations that really speak to me, not just because they are cute.
My husband will make a reformation to two shelves we have to make just one, only for vinylmations. there will be space for 5 rows, and 12 or 13 will fit in each row. the middle row I will leave for bear bricks, the others will be for vinylmations only.
Yesterday I just ordered the complete nightmare before christmas set, that will take one of those five rows. I plan to slowly complete the star wars collection (including, if I'm lucky, both chasers), so that will take another row.
I also ordered yesterday the spooky mickey and minnie, and another of those shelves will be just for mickey and minnie couples. Others i want to add to this row are the geeky ones, the sparkly ones from anniversary and... no idea so far, so a list of mickey and minnie of the same collections would be greatly appreciated! in the middle of those i want to get one custom made with the date me and my husband got married.
i have no idea what will be the theme for the fifth row, but that is the fun of it, isn't it? i have plenty to buy for now to keep myself busy until i figure this out.
I also will collect vinylmations of countries I have been to. So far only 7 countries, so not too many, but will be adding to that collection over time when i visit new places, but for the ones that will be in the shelf.. once that is full, that is that. the flag vinylmations will be kept with all the souvenirs my husband and I buy from trips (miniatures from landmarks). I am searching a french armoire to keep this collection, but no luck finding the one I want so far.
Anyway, I am happy to have found this forum and be able to talk about this new found obsession with people that will understand.
I think I rambled a little bit, so if anything is confusing, please ask, I have no problem to answer!

Also, the list of countries I have been to, I would love if someone could tell me if there is a vinylmation for all of them or not:
