I cannot contain myself. ;u; And I also wanted to share some scans I thought maybe someone out there in the interwebs would enjoy. Other than that I am unexciting in the pokecollecting front for the moment, sorry. XD (Good news is I'm getting better at working with my new editing program so maybe photostory sometime in the near future?!) Though I did get more than just this in the mail today, I'm hoarding up my 'toeds for one (hopefully big) update at a later time! But this one is just too cute and I love it too much.
The resemblance is uncanny, no? |D (This 'toed even has red eyes teehee.) I got this completely adorable Politoed TOMY from eledora, who took great care to ship him safely so he would survive the cold weather without going bald! I can't stop looking at him, he's sooo cute. XD I've been wanting the TOMY Politoed for many months, and the only other two I saw were in GAs that I didn't participate in (and I believe lost anyway, or at least one did). I even acquired a bootleg in my search for one. D: I wouldn't have been able to get this one at all if not for my friend polkadotie thoughtfully asking the seller to hold him for me while I was asleep. ;w; It's not coming across as strongly as I'd like it to, BUT I REALLY WANTED THIS THING AND NOW I HAVE IT AND I LOVE IT AND YAY.
If there's one thing I enjoy as much as getting 'toeds in the mail, it's getting 'toeds in the mail with more 'toeds:
HOW CUTE, RIGHT? I couldn't stop awwwing at the package. XD Thank you so much, eledora! I'm keeping that drawing and I promise your old 'toedy friend is in a very warm and loving home. <33 I'd share more photos but, again, the hoarding. e_e
Now, I mentioned scans, right? I don't really know how many people will be interested in this, and for all I know jumbo sealdass aren't a big deal (I actually don't even know what they are, just a fancy sticker sheet?
Mind the fact that these images are pretty large file sizes so if your connection is slow you might have some issues, thus the links rather than a cut!

For the curious, these images contain (this list includes EVERY Pokemon visible):
Politoed (of course), Pikachu (also of course), Clefairy, Seel, Raichu, Charmander, Togepi, Poliwag, Psyduck, Pichu, Marill, Lapras, Squirtle, Shuckle, Totodile, Slowpoke, Bulbasaur, and a microscopic Gengar trolling the other 'mons from a boat.
Massive thanks go to caffwin for this sealdass. <3 I had no idea Politoed was included in something SO FREAKING CUTE. ;A; I can't stop staring at it. Definitely a treasure amongst my flats. ♥ If anyone would like a version of any scan with more vibrant colours or other edits feel free to ask and I'll see what I can do! My scanner did eat some of the saturation, but the reason I didn't try to bring it back very much is because the file sizes got gigantic. XD;
