Vinylmation Beginner's Guide - Where to Buy on eBay

As part of my Vinylmation Beginner's Guide articles and my New Collector's Corner segment, I've posted about being alert to Vinylmation scrapper sellers. I thought it would be good on the flip side to post some suggested on eBay sellers to use. If you're starting your collection, eBay is a great place to find older figures at very low prices. Even seasoned collectors like myself can use eBay to go back and pick up vinyls you may have missed.

Here is a list of eBay sellers I have personally used and highly recommend:
  • homelessjedi
  • *where-dreams-come-true*
  • theluckypennyllc
I highly recommend the above sellers because they have reasonable prices, free or low shipping costs, and their Vinylmation are in top condition. Vinylmation box sets from these sellers are unopened and blind boxes figures sometimes come with the box and foil included.

Homelessjedi is my absolute favorite eBay seller and I buy from him all the time. Whenever there's something I want, I visit his store first. He has a great selection, super fast shipping, the best prices, and he often runs promotions like buy 4 figures get 1 free which is a fantastic way to get your collection started! 

Here is a list of eBay sellers I have personally used and have been very happy with. The only reason I'm not listing them as highly recommended is because I haven't used them as much as the sellers in the previous list:
  • jee-utsuri
  • playbaseball06
  • vinylagent007
This list is not to say that these are the only good sellers on eBay, it's just meant as a guide for people feeling unsure or even scared when buying on the secondary market. I have used these sellers myself and can personally attest to their trustworthiness.

I would also like to note that I am not receiving any benefit or kickback for naming these sellers as suggested places to buy from. In fact, I doubt they even know! From one Vinylmation collector to another, my aim here is to give honest, helpful feedback for the benefit of others. 

If you have any questions, as always, contact me or leave me a comment and I will be glad to try and help! If you decide to buy from a seller not listed here, I strongly suggest reading my article on scrapper sellers so that you can ensure you are not buying fake or damaged figures. 

Happy collecting!
