I just wanted to share the first pokedolls I ever bought that got me into pokedoll collecting about a week ago which was a couple days before I found this community. Previously, I had no idea what pokedolls even were. Anyways, so I visited a collectible store after visiting Downtown Disney in Anaheim because my cousin wanted to pick up a cheshire cat pillow pet. This collectible store was called Phat Collectibles and had mostly comic books and super hero stuff which I wasn't interested in. However, there was one glass cabinet with a bunch of Pokemon plushes just piled on top of each other in a mess. All of them had tags on them with prices and were labeled as "Misc. plush". I saw a Rayquaza in the pile and decided to buy it just because I like Rayquaza and I also saw a Deoxys but thought it looked too weird and deformed. I went home and did some research and had my eyes opened to pokedoll collecting. After some Ebay searches, I saw the price on Deoxys and quickly drove all the way back to the store the next day and bought it
tl;dr: I bought a oversized Rayquaza pokedoll for $15 and Deoxys pokedoll for $7 at a collectible store that had them labeled as "misc. plush" before I knew what pokedolls were last week before I joined this community. All because I thought they looked cool
Here is a picture of the two after being liberated from the bottom of the dirty glass cabinet
Rayquaza has 2004/japanese on his tush tag and Deoxys has 2005/usa. I hope they aren't bootlegs or whatever..
