|The first Vinylmation I got|
First, I didn't like how they were shaped like Mickey. I didn't understand why they were shaped like him, and it kind of freaked me out. I don't have any real way of refuting this point other than the fact that the figures just grew on me. One day I thought they were freaky, the next day I thought they were less freaky, and so on until I decided they were cute! Especially the Cutesters. This transformation may have began when my sister bought her first Vinylmation figures. One was a Cutester, and it was so adorable! I knew I wanted to buy one of my own.

Personally, I bought one Cutester, and one Park Series #3 Vinylmation figure. The owl and Carousel figures above are the two I came home with, but I did not purchase either. In both cases, I purchased one that I didn't like, and I traded it for the one that I really wanted. I was very pleased that in both cases, I was able to trade for the figures I wanted the most. The hunt for the best figures also became a sort of game. I think I finally "get" Vinylmation.
What do you think of Vinylmation? Love it? Hate it? Had a transformative experience like I did? Let me know in a comment, a tweet (@discollegeblog), or on Twitter!
