Today, I bring to you a much overdue collection update - my zukans collection! My goal isn't as ambitious as to try collecting everything - I have some specific criteria. ;) Here's a preview:
These are larvitarscar's criterion of zukan collecting:
1) Birds. [subset of fat]
I have a small Bird side collection, so naturally I collect Bird zukans like Hoothoot, Taillow, Pelipper, Natu and Starly.
Derpy Pokemon have always had a special place in my heart, thus the presence of Psyduck, Slowpoke, Cacnea, Spinda, Torkoal and Gible.
3) Fat and/or Round
Aaah, my favourite criterion. Marill, Spheal, Vileplume (gaw at the petals), Numel, Swinub, Hippopotas, Jumpluff, Ampharos (the tummy in contrast to its thin neck) etc.
Many overlaps here: Pikachu, Marill, Pachirisu, Bidoof.
Many honourable mentions goes to Larvitar (duh), Teddiursa ('lost' is a category but sadly I can only think of Teddy and Cubchoo as candidates for now) and Buizel (gorgeous diorama and love for it cuz of the anime). More closeups:
Here's group two, from the other room!
For this room, the main dominant categories that apply are
1) Fat and/or Round
Piplup (surprise, surprise) Jigglypuff, Chansey, Clefairy, Crobat (the JAW), Gengar, Quagsire, and Spoink.
Quagsire, the pineapples (Ludicolo), Seviper (maybe it's just me but it has a touch of derp going on).
Honourable mentions go to the Johto starters (Cyndaquil, Totodile, Chikorita), Breloom (one of my favourite RS Pokemon), Team Rocket (both human and Pokemon), Gyarados (it's massive, fierce and plain gorgeous), Shinx, Gardevoir (it's classy and graceful), Heracross and the Jenny/Arcanine diorama. More adoring closeups:
That concludes my zukan collection update! Speaking of zukans, I would like to thank the comm for your support of my zukans + more GA that is currently being organised, we are close to approaching my goal! =D Hope you guys get the items you want. If the GA is successful it would be majorly helpful for my Canada exchange programme next year to have some extra funds. ;)
That's all, folks! Have a great week ahead.
