Good Day everyone,
I have been a Pokemon fan since my sister borrowed their copy of Blue from the kids we were babysitting eons ago and since then have been playing every game. My favorite game was Crystal and it still keeps a special place in my heart. I am from Quebec, Canada and am bilingual English and French (French being my native language).
I have never really collected Pokemon goodies before (though I have had a Vaporeon figure my sister bought me over 10 years ago. I have a soft spot for Vaporeon) but not long ago my obsession with stuffed animals (I have a collection of over 600) suddenly collided with my renewed passion for Pokemon and here I am. I have been looking through the posts of this community for a while, admiring the collections and just plain absorbing the knowledge. I thought it was about time I joined.
I alas do not have pictures or much of a collection yet. But I have been hunting the old larger Play by Play Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur as well as bought a Meowth, Pikachu and Litleo from carefully screened legit sellers on eBay. When those treasures reach me, I will be sure to post pictures. While I have now secured a Play by Play Squirtle and Charmander, I am still hoping to get my hand on the large 1:1 Bulbasaur.
I was not aware of how diverse the legit pokemon collectables were, it's fascinating to discover more and more.
You guys seem like a fun group, keep it up.
