Aaa, Umbreon had no tail. So sad! Anyone interested in a rare no-tailed Umbry? xD I think he might be the tomy keychain but I'm not certain! The bigger Skitty might be a clipping figure, maybe? Manectric has little stubs on his paws so I think he might've been from a playset or something.. Lucario has a weird chip in the bottom of his base.
Another sad tale of no tails! Absol zukan doesn't have his. Don't know what the chibi guy is, or how rare the rest of them are.. The one next to the chibi figure is a tomy I believe, and the one at the end is a keychainless keychain. Think I should have these up for straight sale, or auction?
Storytime! I won a huge blurry Mystery Lot recently on Y!J.
The following is a dramatic reenactment of a small, blurry corner of one of the auction photos.
Amongst the blurs of color and pixels and unidentifiable figures, I recognized something. Ninetales!? Well, not Ninetales, just.. nine tails. The tails piece is normally glued into the body piece and isn't supposed to come out/be put back together like some other zukan pieces (or at least that's how my Ninetales zukan is.) There were a lot of other broken pieces around the edges of the lot, and I couldn't find the front half of Ninetales in the photos..
Got the lot in yesterday! While I was digging through the bag of tiny pieces, I fouuund...
BAM the other half of Ninetales was indeed hiding in the lot! Her tails aren't glued in, but they fit back into place pretty easily! I spotted the teeny itsy bitsy Vulpix zukan piece pretty easily.. funny how you can get really good at finding your signature Pokemon, no matter how huge and ridiculous and blurry a lot photo is. Or is that just me? xP The Vulpix and Ninetales pieces (no base) will be up for auction soon!
Eeveelus pieces! *u* I already had the Umbreon and Flareon, but it was nice to add Espeon to the group! Oh man I can't get over how teeny tiny Eevee is! *u* He'll be going to a lovely friend of mine C: The extra Umbreon will be for offer/sale!
RAAAAH GYARADOS is really cool. I'm shocked - he has like thirty dozen pieces (well, ..seven) and some other figures were missing tiny bits, but Gyarados was all there! I'm pretty sure he's spoken for, but Magikarp will be available soon too.
Whenever I get new zukan, I like to compare them to others! Professor Oak makes a good point of comparison, but he's a bit stocky - James is a pretty good reference of how big Pokemon are compared to your average person!
Jessie and her Arbok! Aw man, I miss Arbok. I need to watch some of the oldschool episodes again sometime.
aaaaaAAAAAA GLALIE IS TOO BIG I am legit afraid of Glalie. It doesn't look so bad and then you realize it's like five feet tall and is a giant floating ice skull face. Glalie is scary.
Quick preview of some of the fun things coming soon to a pkmncollectors auction/offers post near you! I'm working on revamping my sales post too, just need to wait until tomorrow to get nice pictures of everything while the sun is out! I'm hoping to have auctions up by this weekend or early next week :D
