So THIS is what was in the big box!
The Banpresto Shaymin I got off the Eevees and Mudfish GA! I originally thought it would be the size of a Pokedoll, so I was surprised by the giant box it was shipped in!
The smaller package had the I Love Eevee Espeon keychain plush I agreed to get from doryphish333! Sorry to keep you hanging, by the way!
Also, in unreleated shipments:
Speaking of I Love Eevee, I also caved in and ordered a DX Umbreon online after seeing and handling some in person at Otakon (that were being sold for much higher prices).
Now I only need Leafeon and Glaceon to complete my goal of having at least one plush of every Eeveelution!
A couple more additions to my bird trio collection: reverse holo Articuno card and the Moltres Johto charm I won in that auction.
(Plus an Espeon Ippai figure that I've had my eye on for quite some time... It's way too adorable!)
Plus deck boxes... Booyah.
I've also decided to slow down on flats collecting. It just gets overwhelming at times and I prefer figures and plush more. I won't stop getting flats entirely (especially all the nice Japanese eBayers who add stickers and extra stuff to orders), I'll just get the ones that really pique my interest.
