I'm Manta, and have been a fan of Pokemon for most of my life (started with a Squirtle in Blue Version), but only recently became interested in collecting merchandise. I don't yet have any sort of theme, but most of the items I'd like obtain are Banpresto or Pokedoll plushes of my favorites.
Below the cut is a picture of everything I currently have, and I have more detailed pictures here
(I'm fairly certain the Dragonite is a fake - got it at a con, but I still love it!)
Update 4/19/14 - Just got my Banpresto Togekiss in the mail from videogamefigures.com...and I'm fairly certain it's a bootleg. Horns are all wonky.
I'm trying not to go overboard and buy all my wants at once, so to start my time here, I'm looking for a Whimsicott Substitute 5" plush with tags.
I paid $26 for one a few months ago, and it seems that prices have jumped since then. If anyone is selling one, I would love to get a quote on price + shipping.
Thanks so much for allowing me to join this community! :)
EDIT: Updated post with my Banpresto Togekiss (possible bootleg). Opinions on authenticity are appreciated
