They're not just your typical cards, but rare Japanese Hiragana cards. All of these cards are about 3" x 2.5" in size, 1mm thick, and really good quality. They are from a boxed card game from Japan from about 10 years ago I believe.
For all those who haven't been completely consumed by the gen 5 madness, come have a look. :)
So I have FOUR sets of cards. Sets 1 and 2 are colorful at the front, and sets 3 and 4 are only the sketches; I have two pictures of each set, one showing the front and another showing the backs, because there is different art for some of them. Just to avoid any confusion!
If you purchase 5 or more cards, you can choose any card that's $1.50 or under for free! :)
Also another thing I decided impulsively; I am adding freebies to every order! <3
As far as the condition of these cards go, most of them are in excellent to near mint condition, however if there happens to be a problem with the one you want, I will let you know upon giving you a total.

I'll start out with my newest custom Slowpoke plush:
He's by the ever so talented Jadestorm from DA (who is unfortunately not open for more commissions atm)!
Such an adorable little open-mouthed Slowpoke plush! I don't find too many plush artists courageous enough to make one with an open mouth to begin with, so seeing this made me very happy. :D
He's about 12" long and made of fleece and filled with weighted pellets; and he's super squishy! The pose he's made in makes him look like a car that goes vroom vroom if you look at him from the side. XD
An absolute delight to add to my Slowpoke plush collection! <3
Next up, this incredibly rare tiny pink Slowopke figure (who is now mine thanks to Toz). ;__; <3
I had the yellow one from before, and they measure about 1" long (super tiny!) and apparently come in many other colors (the only other of Slowpoke I've seen is red). I could be mistaken, but these figures (along with the metal collection figures) are probably the most rare and sought after Slowpoke figures that I have yet to track down. I am sure most of the reason behind them being so stupidly rare is that they are from so long ago, and they are so tiny that people probably ended up losing them (they are probably one of the tiniest Slowpoke figures I own). I thought they were erasers at first, but then realized that you couldn't really erase with them. D'oh!
Here's the only other one I've seen! It was from a while ago, and unfortunately I ended up letting it slip away at the time. :(
I was informed that they came from these canisters (along with other little figures from the same series inside):

Here's a random lot I found from way back with these figures just for reference. Seems like they come in metallic too!
Such weird history of these random figures.. I have yet to find the rest of the little colored Slowpokes! I still have no idea how many other colors they come in. Anyway, hope this last part didn't bore any of you. 8D
