I wanted to try my hand at collecting a single pokemon rather than all of them like I'm doing with my Tomys so I've decided to start collecting Sigilyph. It just seems relatively unloved and it happens to be one of my favorite from the 5th gen. It's just so cool looking and the sprite in the game is so big and it moves so much, it just looks scary and awesome. Also, since it has so little merch it won't be too hard or too much of an investment to get it all. This is what I have so far:
I also have a giant glow in the dark sticker coming from gleameyesluxray and some more stickers coming from tofu256. I know I'm missing the MPC plush, the retsuden stamp, and a magnet for sure. I wanted to trade one of my b/w series 4 retsuden stamps for the Sigilyph one when I have enough feedback or get sales permission, but I've been looking everywhere for the MPC and can't find it. If anyone knows where I could get one help would be appreciated. Let me know if you know of anything I'm missing. Maybe there's a pan sticker? I don't know too much about them so I'm not sure.
On to my other gets...
I got this I <3 Pikachu plush after I saw them in a GA a while back. It was too adorable to pass up. When it came I was surprised by how small it was. I'm not a huge fan of Pikachu, but I love this little guy and his little pom pom. :)
He likes hanging out on my bootie whale. :)
I also got the Magikarp pokemon time strap from Pokevault. It came with a Dragonair pattern bookmark. The bookmark looks cool, but I don't really care about it so I'll probably sell it when I can. This little fish is so adorable. I wanted to hang it on my phone, but when I got it I realized my phone doesn't have a place to hang charms. :( So I just hung it on my desk lamp. Actually It's probably better off on the lamp, because if it was on my phone it probably would get damaged or broken.
I've also amassed probably over 50 additional TOMY figures over these past few weeks. Of my new guys, Snorlax is my favorite. I set him on my desk next to Gengar and Lugia and when I get back from class he's all like "Hi, how'ya doin'?"
When they all come in I want to do a group shot of them, but that will have to wait for my next collection post. I'm still trying to figure out a way to display them as well...
On the subject of TOMYs, part of what inspired me to post today is that I just won this lot on ebay!
I guess that's it for this update. I have more coming, but I'll wait to post it. For now, my wallet has taken a huge hit. I was wondering how you guys budget your money for pokemon purchases. I need to get a budget in place...
