First, a quick re-introduction: Hi! I'm Kaylyn, I go by Methuselah online, I'm 22, and have loved Pokemon since it came out here! Third Gen is my favorite, and Blaziken is my favorite Pokemon. :3 I love and collect plush in general, but I'm just going to focus on my chickens for this post. Here's my post from last year, with the first few pictures showing my Blazikens then. And here's what my shelf looks like a year later!
They now have the whole shelf to themselves! Yay! A few things don't fit, like the Bekett magazine below, so they're elsewhere.
Up here is cards! I have 13 of the 14 different Blaziken cards. (I'm just considering each different artwork to be a different card, so not counting different releases.) The only one I'm missing is Rafe's Blaziken.
To the left, I have the Blaziken line in German cards, and a Japanese one. I'd really like a French card one day, and maybe a Korean one or something. :3
Here's a close-up of the first third of the shelf.
Here's down the wall, which has flats taped in sleeves here. Not too many new ones, as I don't really go for flats much.
And a close-up of the figures here. I moved the Bottlin figure on top of the Kid's box, so it's finally nicely visible.
And here's a close-up of the Tomys! The big guy in the back is the Tomy Pose Figure. I'd been after him for a while, missed him a few times on the comm, and then one night during my ebay search, saw this guy for super cheap. He was terribly dirty and scuffed, but he cleaned up fairly nicely and I love him! Such an awesome pose!
Right in front of him is the Tomy Keychain figure, minus the keychain part. I'd seen him in a large picture in a sales post quite a few times, but kept passing him up as I thought he was the bootleg Tomy. >.> But then I looked closer and freaked out, and was afraid that I'd stupidly missed him, or maybe it still wasn't actually the keychain figure. But he was there, and he was indeed the keychain! Yay!
Around/in front of him are two regular Tomy figures (with slightly different paint colors, I'm weird lol) and two Clear Tomys. Can't believe I actually have two Clears after how long I'd been after one. Both are damaged, however, so I maaaay try to go after a third if I'm sure it has both head feathers still. But I love the two I have! So pretty! <3
Moving over to the middle section...
Not too much new stuff here, though I guess I can note that I took down a lot of the art I had along the back (though I still have it all!) to fit other stuff.
Here's what is new though! Both Blaziken Zukan pieces! I'm so happy to finally have the one with the wrist flames. It's so pretty! And he had his base, which has holes in it, so I was able to throw away the gross chunk of play-doh I'd been using for a base for the other and put them together!
And here's the third section! Some awesome new stuff here...
(And a metal Torchic! I don't collect Blaziken's pre-evos, but I do love little Torchic. And lookit how cute that little metal guy is! >w< Maybe one day he'll evolve into a metal Blaziken? haha)
First awesome get close-up! The Blaziken from the PokemonCenter's Heroes Promo! Oh man, is this guy gorgeous. Look at that face. <3 Story! Last Christmastime, I saw him on ebay constantly, but he was quite expensive and I had a lot of gifts to buy, so I decided to wait til right after the holidays to get him. I checked all the time, and he was always there, always for the same price, relisted right when his listing ended. So Christmas was over and I had the money to get him... but he was gone. No one had bought him, but he wasn't relisted. Nooo... Months went by, and still no pretty Hero Blaze. I'd all but given up on that one, but then, the seller relisted him! Still the same expensive price, but pfffft mine!! I bought him right away, and he's possibly my favorite big Blaziken. Hollow, so he's really light, but he couldn't be more perfect.
Behind him, you can see a binder my boyfriend got me at a swapmeet at a convention. Yay Blaziken!
Here's an overwiew of some of the flatter things, as well as the big European Blaziken with the kicky-leg. I think he was the last big Blaziken I needed!
Here's some Battrios, some other pretty thingies, and... what's that...?
Blaziken Pokedoll charm. It's. So. Pretty. So tiny and pretty!! Thank you so much, godudette, for helping me get this! <3
The custom stamp behind was made by godudette, too! Again, thank you! I love it! I found the block of wood and mounted it onto that for easier stamping. I like stamping cute chickens everywhere. :D
Getting close to the end here. Here's a close-up of the nice art on the Beckett magazine!
Poor Blaziken only has two plush(well I guess that's bettter than nothing though!). Here's one... Poor derpy Hasbro 'ken. He doesn't have feet talons, his tail looks upside-down, his face is... yeah... and yet I still love him. ^-^ I remember I was so excited when I got him in the mail. A Blaziken I could hug! He lives in the plush hammock with some other Pokemon.
Aaaaaand then we have this guy! The Blaziken Pokedoll! He's my favorite plush ever, and I'm so glad to finally have him after years of wanting one. He lives in the headbord cubby thing with a few other favorite plush.
And some Blaziken shirts! I have a ton of Pokemon shirts that I love to wear, but for the longest time, didn't have a single shirt with my favorite Pokemon. Then my boyfriend happened to find the purple one on ebay. Most awesome shirt ever, perhaps. :D It's tiny, but it's amazing. Blaziken nice and big, plus two other cool Pokemon, on a pretty color! Yay! Then not too long after, I saw the yellow one. Blaziken isn't as much of the star of this, as it has everyone starter wise, but still. It's cool, even if it is long-sleeved and a funny yellow shade. Then the dark blue one appeared! What strange Pokemon to pair him with! But it's such a pretty-colored design, and I really love it. This one's really small too, though... But it's NWT, so I may not try to fit this one. lol Next, the red one with the random assortment of Pokemon. I was bidding on one on ebay, but lost that one. So I knew I still needed that one, and a little later, someone had it in their sales, NWT! But not only that one. A light blue shirt with a Blaziken too. What was this?! Another shirt I hadn't seen with him! And wait. That pretty yellow one has a Blaziken, too. THREE shirts with Blazikens in one go! Happy day!
I know that I'm missing at least one more Blaziken shirt that I know of, but like all six of the ones I have, I'm sure there's others that will pop up, and I'd love to get them as well!
Well, that's it for now, but next time, I'll try to get pictures of all the Pokemon around the apartment. My boyfriend also collects Pokemon, so we have them everywhere!
I updated my sales last night, with almost all-new pictures and lots of new stuff! Click the banner to see!
