Just....

Hey guys.. Sorry for my second post in one week but this week has been exciting for me.  First I got my SSS gets and at the same time i have got a grail. Now i sometimes think the word " Grail" Is kinda overused. It should mean for something super rare and hard to find like the pokemon centre giants, or certain pokedolls or whatever. This one counts. Oh boy...

Last time i posted a pic of this...





You probably guessed who it is.




SAM_1170

A Salamence Pokedoll.





Of course it took me 3 years since i have been in the Community to obtain such a rare pokedoll. I honestly feel I have accomplished something great.

Story time.

I joined the comm back in 2010. I already knew i was to be a dragon collector as i have been a fan of them since Red. I loved the diversity of the Dragon type. They can learn all sorts of moves and were one of the best types back in the game. These days, they are a lot more in balance now with the inclusion of the fairy type. Anyway back then i found certain collectors who were also dragon collectors. Most notably happyjolteon and , techno4tomcats. These two inspired me to collect dragons full time. Both of which owned a Salamence pokedoll. I learned from various posts and sources that Salamece was released in Japan only in 2003. Way back in the AG era of pokemon. A time when pokemon was in a sort of down time. Despite a lot of merch released many pokedolls from this generation and indeed certaon gen 3 pokedolls are considered  some of the rarest . Such as Absol, Corpfish, the fully evolved starters and Salamence. Even now in 2014 many of these dolls can fetch $200ish on ebay.

So I figured I would never even see a Salamence pokedoll. A few times I have seen them. One was in a lot on Y!J but was quickly claimed when the lot was GAed. Sometimes i'd find one here on the comm, but could either A- never afford it or B not shipping to the UK. Then I saw chain's offers for one. I had to at least try. It took a small bid war but I won him. Im very grateful that he allowed me to do a payment plan.  So after a few weeks of tracking the guy... and waiting a week to collect him from Parcel force.. here he is.

He is so chubby.... so fat..... so Salamence.


I cannot describe my feelings right now

If you want to know... the only ones I know on the comm who own this guy are


happyjolteon
techno4tomcats
eevee_trainer
miss_fuu_chan
yellowmudkip
polahbear
chain
salamence646
ville_valo

And now me. I feel like i am in a select club or something. ( i Know i missed a few members who own one so let me know and i will add you too the list. I hope the members don't mind me tagging you)









Finally meet my new baby

SAM_1177

My very first shiny Dragon. He has no name yet but he is my baby. It took me 3 eggs to hatch the guy. He isnt a dragonite yet but soon.... soon..... I got super lucky btw. I bet it will take a lot more eggs to duplicate that and get a shiny Salamence or something!!
