Holy heck, what is this?! I must lick it immediately!
Salutations, fellow ne'erdowells. I am Solanar, backwards-thinking pluviophile and general loser. A part-time thrift store clerk, I spend all non-bill money on plastic, resin, and vinyl crack, and waste my days doing all things art-geeky.
As a child, I watched sparse episodes of DB and DBZ whilst visiting. My friends were big fans, but I didn't understand the plot at the time. Still we made our own characters, and spent many happy hours throwing faux punches and yelling imaginary attacks. We all had stories for 'our' corners of the universe. Since my household was largely anti-violence at the time, I'd spend hours gazing longingly at the action figure section during every trip to KB Toys. But I never owned a single figure.
In middle and highschool I wasted time laughing with children in the after class programs at old DBZ Abridged content. I'd do terrible impressions of the characters, and bring smiles aplenty.
Years later, SH Figuarts came out with their amazing line. I knew I had to own some of these beauties. There was no question. It sort of sucked me back into things, and now I can't seem to escape. I'm on a quest to find all things space lizard and build the family.
So far my "collection" is pretty sparse; just a Figuarts Piccolo and Frieza (Final Form). And a mint Jakks Pacific First Form Frieza is on his way. But I am a diverse collector, so they have plenty of company from other lines to hang with. And there will be more. Oh yes.
I look forward to getting to know you as I explore. I am already digging some of the awesome collections and customs that drew me here.
