Short and sweet reintro. for a short and sweet wants post: I'm SG, 23, law school, and a KYUREM COLLECTOR RAAAAAA
SO, on Kyurem, I found this beauty while searchin' for ice dragons the other day:
And I can't believe I didn't have it on my radar????
So, I'M LOOKING FOR IT! Kyurem-EX Ancient Origins full art!
Troll and Toad has it for $6.50, so I'm trying to find something comperable on the comm. because ily guys and thought I'd come here first! So, if you got my ice baby, let me know!
(Also a bonus if you also have the LUGIA-EX FULL ART FROM ANCIENT ORIGINS. Lookin' for that too but it's not top priority)
With ORAS approaching (just before my first finals in law school start to churn out :[ ) I'm scared to say that I've been bitten by the hype bug!!
That being said, does anyone one here have a used or discarded Treecko Plush for sale??? Preferrably something big enough to snuggle with <3 A low price is preferred since I don't care about its condition and plan for it to be a snuggle buddy, lol
To up the excitement of my amazingly entertaining post,
Have you decided on your ORAS starter yet??? Which one?? Why??? Will you be starting a collection in their honor?
I always chose Torchic because of Blaziken and her beauty and badassery, but Treeko and his final mega just....man he's so cool. Definitely tempting for me to get some of his figures (especially the TFG!)
Hop on the hype train, errybody
A small grail of mine popped up and I need to liquidate a little to for sure get it...so it's time for a small clearance sale!!!
Everything is absolutely 100% negotiable, so if something interests you just shoot me a number!
Anything purchased and paid for in the next 15 hours will be shipped TOMORROW MORNING!
( White Kyurem tomy and some kids!Collapse )
I come today to finally announce the opening of my shop!
Where our top priority is your satisfaction with our lovely and helpful Furfrou employees! (Not really!)
Please feel free to check it out! It's mostly weeding sales through a collection that is long overdue for a weeding, including things such as a copy of Pokemon White, a shiny orange Charizard Tomy, and a cool Charmander line flippy book thing I can't even possibly begin to describe because it's so dated!
Thanks a lot guys!
(Sales permission granted on 4/2/12 by entirelycliched.)
Oh my gosh have I missed you all.
It's been a WHILE since I truly updated with a proper collection update, and I can finally reclaim my collecting life since I recently (and finally!!!) graduated from my university!!! Yaaaaay!!! GO GATORS
So before I dive head-first into professional/grad school, I thought I should pop in and update with a true and proper collection update for the first time in a pretty long time, haha.
So I guess it's time for a short and sweet reintroduction! My name is Geena, I'm 21, and I am primarily a collector of Kyurem, the coolest and most awesome ice dragon in all of Unova! I also casually collect Whiscash, Porygon, Sandshrew, and Maggyo/Stunfisk. But it's mostly my ice baby!
So here we go you guys!
THE COLLECTION UPDATE (that actually has no Kyurem collection update...so....here's a bunch of stuff I like!)
(I also apologize in advance for the horribly lit photos and if the cuts go awry! )
( THE UPDATE!!! Collecting from ...a long time ago until now!Collapse )
I also have a quick question!
My friend from Japan got me this keychain along with the Charizard (can she be any more precious???), and though Lugia is my -secret favorite legendary,- I can't for the life of me find any information on this keychain. I have a feeling it's from the somewhat-recently released Lugia promo from a year or two ago, but I couldn't really prove that. If anyone recognizes this key chain and can tell me any more information on it, I would really appreciate it! It has a clear backing and is a pretty decent size; check it out under the cut!
I'm also here to announce!!!!!
That finally!!!!! After years of being a member of this comm and tons of impromptu sales post!!! I have decided to open a shop!!!!
Coming very soon to a PKMNCollectors community near you....
Coming really really soon!!!
(Sales permission granted on 4/2/12 by entirelycliched, just in case it's needed!)
I come today with a quick little get that had turned into something slightly larger....
Not too long ago, I purchased this little fella, and it came today!
CUTEST SANDSHREW KEYCHAIN. 4EVR.
And as I held it in my hands today my obsession just grew TENFOLD and ASLDFALSDHF Sandshrew just..because of this keychain I have found love.
In a little Gen. 1 sand rodent.
(SMALL BACKSTORY TO THE IRONY, believe it or not I’m STILL missing a few cards from my Gen. 1 pkmn card collection, with one of them being Sandslash, so I have a bit of a vendetta against the pair..)
BUT NO MORE, because I’ve completely fallen in love and head over heels for this ridiculously adorable creature.
SO I NEED YOUR HELP, COMMUNITY, BECAUSE TODAY I ANNOUNCE....
~ A side collection! ~
So I need guidance! In terms of! Getting a somewhat decent list of crazy sandshrew merch!
I know there are some kids and Tomys and the like, but is there any other weird and crazy merch out there of this little guy, along the lines of this keychain?
And I faintly recall there being a
And just for Arceus’s sake, MY COLLECTING POKEMANS;
Thanks again everyone <3
Just wanted to pop in...
WITH A COLLECTION UPDATE AHHHH Oh no, what? What?! Really!?
This is my second collection update since I -finally- decided and declared which Pokemon I'm going to collect (since I've been just randomly collection for a few years now).
So I bring you..
( My Kyurem Collection Update!Collapse )
Thanks for reading everyone!
HOPE YOU ALL REMAIN AWESOME
I hit a revelation a few weeks ago, a revelation that will forever change the way I collect Pokemans and how I view this site.
BUT FIRST A SMALL REINTRO! (Reintro yaaaay!):
I'm dearballadeer, or Geena in real life, and I'm 20, live in Florida with my terrier named Cash, and study International Studies at the University of Florida. I've been a lurker for 3 years, and an official member for about 2 years now.
My entire time spent here, with all of you lovely lovely awesome people, has been spent aimlessly collecting Pokemon that I simply really, really like! I have a bunch of Whiscash items, legendary dogs, Lugia, Keldeo, Cradily, Maggyo maggyo maggyo, etc.
Time spent lost in the PKMNcollecting world, not really have a particular Pokemon to lovingly love.
PKMNCollectors community, I would like to announce that I, dearballadeer, have now decided to devote my collecting life to become:
A KYUREM COLLECTOR!!!!!!!
( Cut for my Kyurem Collection as of now!!!!Collapse )
( Wants and Grails!!!!!Collapse )
You guys are awesome, and I'm just so excited, really really.
Here's to a new adventure of COLLECTING!!!!!!!!
I haven't updated in forever :c I've been moving a lot these past few months and with my constantly growing collections being tucked away in boxes (after I play with them for a bit ofcourse lol), I haven't found the time to update properly!
I visited my local Target in the small town I live in, who NEVER gets shipments or just ALWAYS gets them fashionably and painstakingly late, I decided to skim for the new Tomy merch.
Wanted to hope that everyone had a great holiday season c: Mine were spectacular!
I ended up going to NYC for a bit, and ofcourse, did the typical PKMN thing to do and GO TO THE NYC CENTER AAFHHFHA!SDFAKSLDF
I really wanted to grab all of the White Kyurem dolls, but they were a little out of my pricerange....but I couldn't help myself from grabbing all of these adorable cuties for a PHOTO OP: PKMNCOLLECTORS STYLE
I ended up getting one of those neat hyper sized tomys, which is actually incredibly detailed..... wish they had more normal Kyurem merch though.
ALSO IN LINE; there was a child in front of me and his parents asked him to go get another Pokedoll, so he leaves and comes back with... TERRAKION!? I didn't see it when I was looking, so my friend and I combed the entire store before concluding that the kid took the last Terrakion doll :/ Oh well. Still happy with my figure!
(Also, on a side note; any French speakers out there?
I'm a bit of a grammer freak, and people using the term 'Mansion' to describe the 'La Maison du Eevee' strikes me as awkward, haha. Maison just translates to 'house', not necessarily mansion (though the Eevee house is pretty big!). But it looks like its definately meant to resemble one of those cut houses found in a textbook when learning a new language.
Just wanted to inform the community I guess! Maison just means house, lol).
Hope you're all enjoying the nearing holiday season c:
AS CHRISTMAS IS FAST APPROACHING, I HAVE QUITE A WANT:
My mom just passed the state exam to get her nursing liscense, and we're all very excited!!! Because of the event, I thought no Christmas gift would be more suiting than.....
I see that there are some Nurse Chansey kids up on eBay, and it's my last resort, because I wanted to try the community first!
So if you have any Nurse Chansey Figures, Kids, or Keychains, please shoot me an offer or I'll shoot you one, whichever suits you!
Thanks for the help you guys <33
This is my FINAL WEEDING SALES for a while (which means massive collection update coming soon soon soon!!!!!!!), and what doesn't sell here will.... probably be going in a donation bin or to my little cousin.
EVERYTHING IS $1 OR LESS, except for two items (A motion talking Mew and Pansage plush to be specific!)
( RULES!Collapse )
HERE WE GOOOOOO
( SALES!Collapse )
Thanks a lot you guys!
It's the 4th of July here in the States.... WHICH MEANS IT'S ALSO MY BIRTHDAY YAYYYY
And I just transferred into the university of my choice as a political science major. And birthday is on Independence Day. As a political science major. So when I graduate THE WORLD WILL IMPLODE OF COINCIDENTALNESS.
My roomate knows of my Pokemon obsession, so for my birthday she got me THIS PANSAGE DOLL FASLDKFHASDF
I just had to expose my new addition because MAN, I'm not a huge Pansage fan but the cuteness of this doll completely changed my outlook on the monkey.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA
and me yayyyy
I come today with a little bit of a conundrum:
SO I GOT THIS KID.
And I absolutely love it ldsfhlaskdflskdfh thank you so much heatrotomftw97
The package arrived sealed and perfectly intact, and I'm just SO EXCITED.
But upon opening it, I got........ a Terrakion sticker? I'M SO CONFUSED.
Does this usually happen, or is it just a production mistake? I was so excited for a Kyurem sticker, and not finding it was just a little disappointing :[
I have an afro buffalo kid MIP and it has it's own sticker, so I'm assuming it's not a regular thing to switch stickers? Please tell me if this has happened to you!
Regardless, this Terrakion sticker is UP FOR TRADE. Will trade for a Kyurem OR Keldeo sticker :]
I have a question for MAGGYO COLLECTORS:
I have the pass case, and gosh darn it IT'S MY FAVORITE THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
I've been contemplating on getting a plush of the little fish! I need something to protect me at night with fish snuggles and faces of forever being confused.
I'm curious as to Maggyo plush recommendations! I've heard the pass case is nearly the size of the canvas, yet has much better quality. Snuggling a pass case would be strange though, haha.
Or the cushion perhaps....? Any critique on the material it's made out of?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
On a more random and less boring note:
ANYONE WATCHING THE NBA FINALS!? I KNOW I AM! (I live in Miami, so....GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Well, there's a player on the opposing team named Kevin Durant, and I just find it hilarious every time they scream 'AND DURANT HAS THE BALL .... THAT'S 2 FOULS ON DURANT.'
(If the image is yours and you don't want it here, let me know and I'll take it down!)
Howdy fellow PKMNCollectors!
I come to you.....WITH A STORY. A story of courage, pirates, wide open sea, but mostly, cleaning a dirty grail kid!
Again, big shout out to donny9 for uniting me with my precious baby c:
HERE WE GOOOO
So this is how my boobooboobooboo wailord kid began; nothing serious, just some stubborn struffs and marks!
( Extreme Makeover: WAILORDCollapse )
Do you guys have any other different methods of cleaning your kids or figures?
Or do YOU have an awesome rags-to-super cleanliness stories of your figures or plush? I WANT TO KNOW!!!!
(P.S.: Thanks you guys, your are all seriously the best <3)
I come with a quick question I can't seem to find anything about! I've searched the tags, googled it, meditated on it, swam to China and back on it, all to no avail! So I'm hoping you guys can help me out.
I have a kid. A grail kid, to be exact, and it has a few random, though small, marks and such about it. I'm curious if there's a good effective way to clean them? Or just a good way to clean kids in general?
If you guys have any personal experience, or know of any sites or links that can help me out, that'd be wonderful c:
Only one item.
And it's here.
SO I GOT SOMETHING IN THE MAIL. AND I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER BEEN MORE EXCITED FOR SOMETHING EVER.
THE MAGGYO PASS CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's so much bigger than I thought it would be, it's like the size of a canvas plush! ONLY IT HAS A HOOK! SO YOU CAN ATTACH IT TO THINGS AND TAKE IT AROUND WITH YOU ALSDHFALSDHFALKSDHFLAKSDHFLKASHDF
I'm so excited.
Thank you guys, you all are the best <3
Okay, I had a revelation today and wanted to share with you guys, as well as for you to share your own stories!
So I purchased a ridiculous ammount of Next Destinies boosters today (only pulled a holo Articuno :c But atleast it's really pretty!). Anyways, as I was sorting through my pulls, I saw this guy:
And I just.....COMPLETELY AND UDDERLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE ART. I have NEVER felt this way towards any card EVER of the 10+ years I've been buying boosters. NEVER EVER. And I just.....oh my gosh it's just so BEAUTIFUL.
My view of Beartic has completely changed because of this card! I used to not like it at all but now.....ugh I can't get enough!
So my question to you: Has the art of a card ever completely captured your imagination or changed your view of a certain Pokemon, no matter how random of a Pokemon it is?
I just want to make sure I'm not crazy if I'm the only person who's ever felt this!!
(PS You guys are the greatest <3)
I come today with a small update and a question! c:
FIRST AND FOREMOST, I UPDATE
( KIDS!!!!!!!!! Collapse )
I bought this really neat flat when I was very, very, very very young (we're talking over 10 years ago!), and it's just the neatest thing. I've had it hanging on my fridge in my apartment for a while now set to the Charizard panel, and it's not until now that I realize this comm. can help me figure out exactly what it is!
HERE IS THE ITEM:
( Super cool flappy flat thing YEAH!Collapse )
Random post, but I just had to share! I looooove cards, not obsessively, but they're SO GREAT! I kind of stopped going crazy for the booster packs, but after I bought one on a whim a few months ago and pulled a full-art Terrakion, I BECAME ADDICTED.
So I bought one, JUST ONE, of the Next Destinies boosters..
AND PULLED AN EX MEWTWO :D
I got way too excited...the art on this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I'm not the biggest Mewtwo fan, but man this is the bomb. Also pulled a non-holo Reshiram in the same pack! I WON THE POKEMON BOOSTER PACK LOTTERY AHHHH.
Have you guys had any amazing pulls lately!? Please share!
So I got something super awesome in the mail the other day.....
I HAD TO SHARE.
This is a very minor post for a very minor irk I'm hoping you guys can help me solve:
I own this Suicune kid:
However, there is some paint on his belly that's preventing me from reading the copyright imprint.
So here's my question:
What year was this Suicune made!?!
I have the Raikou and Entei and can read them just fine, but I can't for the life of my find out the year of this little guy!
If you guys can look at your Suicune kid bellies and tell me I will be eternally grateful c:
So school is kicking back in, and I'm sure we're all feeling the back-to-school blues...
SO LET'S HAVE SOME PKMN COLLECTORS' FUN!!!!!!!
I've always been interested in the sheer SIZE of some Pokemon items....such as the itty bitty zukans and the giant sleeping starters plushes!
SO; CAN YOU GUYS DO ME A FAVOR, and tell me about both your LARGEST and *smallest* Pokemon items!
(Also don't mind my hand propping up Derpzard's neck, hehe)
SO SHOW ME YOUR SIZE DIFFERENCES!
Just wanted to submit my entry for the winter contest!
THIS CONTEST IS SO EXCITING FFFFFF, I have loved all of the entries sooooo much so far, I just had to give it a shot!
HERE IT IS
(I take him to college sometimes and he sits on the piano when I play in the jazz band. He's cool enough for jazz! Because he's an ice type! Hunh? Hunh!?).
Anyways, I hope you all are enjoying your holidays, and a Happy Belated New Years to all!
I have a quick question for you guys!
Can any of you tell me anything about this clear Hasbro Latios?
I have one, but have no idea of its origin or what it's all about!
The one on the right is the Latios!
I'm just curious!
Thanks a ton you guys <3
I have a question; Christmas is coming up, and my dearest friend has an absolute LOVE for Flaafy!
I want to get her some sort of Flaafy merch, but I can't find anything!!
Does anyone know where I can snag some Flaffy merch, if it even exists? I'm looking for something along the lines of a plush or a kid, not so much TCG.
My name is Geena, and I've been a longtime lurker in the com. and figured I'd properly introduce myself c:
I love Pokemon! As we all do! YEAH!
I don't have much of a 'collection' per say, just a bunch of things I've gathered since early childhood, but here is all I could muster up around my apartment:
I also have a ridiculous amount of tomys and cards, but these are the big guns I guess!
The derpy chu backpack, Pikachu N64, and huge Lugia figure from the 2000 movie are my beautifuls :] I love them so much!
I also have some completely random things here that I haven't seen around the community or anything for that matter....these would be the Meowth mask that I got in Paris, FR, and the two tins, one of them having a Rapidash and the one under it have Ponyta, Vulpix, Growlithe, and someone else.....they're pretty neat though!
But yeah, just wanted to establish myself formally :]
YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!
