2017 Vinylmation Isle Awards Ballot

My apologies that this ballot is coming out much later than usual. I went back and forth on whether or not I would do Vinylmation Isle Awards this year. This has been the first year that several months have passed without a release so I wondered just how interesting the awards would be. On top of that, I've been super busy since the summer and there's no chance of things slowing down. I didn't know if I had the energy for another round of Vinylmation Isle Awards because let me tell you, it's a lot of work!

BUT, yesterday I looked at some of my Vinylmation that I have displayed and as cheesy as it sounds, memories of collecting the figures I was looking at flooded back. I remember why they mean so much to me and why I love them to this day, so I decided "heck, it's not too late, I'll do this!" I figure if releases keep slowing down, this may be the last time my blog's awards will even work. As usual, I will give you guys 2 weeks to vote, voting is open now and will close on January 13th at 10pm Central. The winners of the 2017 Vinylmation Isle Awards will be announced at the end of January.

Once again I would like your help voting for the artists, figures and designs you think are worthy of recognition this year. Just use the ballot below. Be sure to check back late January to see the winners!

(Only Vinylmation that have been released between January 1 and December 31, 2017 are eligible to win in each category. Voting will close on January 13, 2017).
