I haven't done one of these in a while you're going to have to excuse me I'm a little rusty.
I feel like it's necessary to give a little babby reinto to who the heck I am since it's been awhile and gosh there are a few new faces floating around (I swear I'm doing one of these with every post I make now good god). SO HI. I'm Pannsie. 19 year old Australian collector of the Venusaur variety, but also Hawlucha/Dunsparce/Huntail/MANY OTHER SIDES OH GOD SO MANY SIDES. I think I first posted here like 2010 or w/e and gosh darn here I am this is boring oNTO THE MERCH.
Ok half of these are from last year/early this year because I'm an asshole that doesn't know how to manage time. But I couldn't leave this out! ivyaggron is the love of my life and sent me this out of the kindness of her own heart and oh she is just a GEM. A LOMBRE RETSUDEN STAMPER! I didn't even know there was one out there, and if I had known I would've never anticipated owning one. These things are harder to find than your passport I s2g. Unfortunately it's out of ink but it's literally over a decade old so it's not something I'll lose sleep over.
Another gift from a wonderful friend, this loser faiarrow sent me some GORGEOUS cards after I watched her pull them on her livestream. They were lucky enough to pull tWO Venusaur EX cards, AND THEN THEY JUST???? GAVE ME ONE???
Son I am not worthy of such a beautiful card like are you looking at that. The art, that amazing shimmer.
But really Dunsparce is the true star of this show.
Ok LAST GIFT I THINK I swear I don't just get showered with amazing things I'm just horrendously lazy at updating. My Sunflora collection recently got a lovely boost! Namely that the lovely Sunflora plush by my main man bubble_rhapsody! She is such a talent I swear to god and this plush fits PERFECTLY in with my dumb little setup! Much better than the official one ever did~ Thank you again Aimee!
I can't believe I haven't updated with this yet I am WEAK. BUT OH MY GOSH LOOK AT THIS WONDERFUL LITTLE BABY. I GOT HIM LIKE A YEAR AGO AND I'M STILL NOT OVER HIM. I mean most of you know that Venusaur is my main collection; I don't deal in Bulbasaurs or Ivysaurs, but this is something I wanted so bad. I adore Pokemon Time style, and after seeing it in the flesh thanks to my bud rocket_chick, I knew one had to be mine. But I never actually expected to make it happen!
BUT HEY SOMETIMES YOU JUST FIND ONE ON Y!J AND THE AUCTION GODS SMILE DOWN UPON YOU NOW HERE WE ARE.
Plus it's like the perfect size when compared to my custom Venusaur PT plush. Mama with little baby loser~
Oh my god THIS. This is something I've been waiting for ever since the first questionable leaks of Hawlucha emerged on the internet. I'm big on colour and design when it comes to pokemon, and Hawlucha's colour scheme and unique concept just IMMIDIATELY captured my imagination in a way that no other Pokemon have managed to do. I was ecstastic when the leaks were confirmed to be real, and pretty much over the moon when I found one in my own game! Son let me tell you something she KICKED ASS. NOTHING COULD STAND IN HER WAY
MORE LUCHA LOOT. I'm not big on flats but these are charms they don't count. I got two of the 'dex charms for 3DS blinging purposes, and I just recently got the kokeshi series charm which just has the fatest little head.
Like dude that head shape is not conducive to hand to hand combat are you going to be ok.
I'm also not big on badges and pins but holy SHIT this one is an exception to the rules. I adore pokemon merch with a really solid, subtle design and this one ticks all of my boxes so I bought two like a loser. Still have no fucking clue where I'm going to put this. But it's perfect so w/e I'm happy to have it hanging around on my desk while the prefect opportunity to flaunt my nerdiness arises.
Ok but this figure is hella rad. The super tomy? hyper tomy? Ultra mega double down combo???? Idfk. ALL I DO KNOW IS THAT IT'S RAD. I also really like the slight face/body shape changes with Mega Venusaur let that be shown on the record I think they look really great.
Like it kind of looks like a really fat bluw flower cat and I am so wildly ok with that.
PERFECTION THIS IS PERFECTION THERE'S NOTHING I CAN SAY TO DESCRIBE HOW PERFECT NEXT QUESTION.
Ask the cutie before u touch the booty
UGH I'VE GOTTEN SO MANY THINGS SINCE I LAST UPDATED I'VE LITERALLY FORGOTTEN HALF OF THEM LOOK NEW VENUSAURS AREN'T THEY WONDERFUL.
Shit I forgot the new Kid and that red figure oh god damn.
"remember to eat ur greens kids"
And hey, I've done a massive update over at my collection website, The Sunny Clearing! Click the link or the banner below to check it out; besides like one thing I forgot it's 100% updated with all my Venusaurs, and a bunch of other new stuff too~
Also if you want to trade links that's totally cool.
And hey! Melbourne Pokemon collectors! Some of us were thinking of having a meetup in the city around September; wanna join us? We'd just be grabbing some lunch and doing some shopping, or something cooler, idk. Any suggestions are welcome! There's no set date as of yet, I just wanted to extend the invitation to anyone that hasn't been before that would like to come! Bring your 3DS if you want and we can battle and stuff, it'll be great~
Lastly super quickly, I'm still forever on the hunt for the Burger King Venusaur plush (pictured below). Four years of searching, still no luck, but hey, with new members, you never know! If you have it and feel like selling it, or even just have it and are willing to take some better photos I would love you forever.
