  • hey guys! great posts over the weekend. Did they say anything about new mold/old mold for the new stich and figment vinylmation nerds??

    • The design on the projection seems to be an old mold. I hope they’re in the old mold so that they fit in with the whole set. However I doubt it considering all the other releases around that time & after will be in new mold, but how do they put the glasses on when it doesn’t have a nose?

      Btw love the imagination logo on Figment’s shirt!
