It only became apparent to me when I saw the shots from Brickfest that there's a large number of individuals within the Lego community that have their own signature fig, or as well know and love them by, "sigfig". In some instances, sigfigs can represent their creators, and even take on a life of their own. As with all Lego creations, they're incredibly unique and personalized.
With that, I immediately decided to create one, but that's not what i'm here to advertise today.
I've just this minute founded a group on Flickr dedicated to sigfigs. The idea is that for the first time on the internet everyone's sigfigs will be displayed together under one big collection for easy browsing, creating an almost "minifig community" so to speak.
Obviously there's nothing here bar my own shots at the moment, but if anyone's interested in joining the group, figuratively speaking and literally, feel free to do so! See you all there!
