My bro drew this awesome birthday card for me :D it's such an unique addition to my Hawlucha collection!!! But not the only Hawlucha related gift I got!!
For the first time in my life, I had a birthday cake with a printed image on it!!
... keep in mind I turned 29 this year.
Yes, I consider this item part of my collection, even if it was only part of it for a few hours XD
I also got this binder, finally! It wasn't available for sale in Italy so my bro secretely ordered one for me on amazon. But... the same day he ordered it, another friend of mine got me the same portfolio!
Now I have two, but it's not a problem at all. I have many Hawlucha flats to store inside, and two binders migt not even be enough :P
Not Hawlucha related, but Umbreon is still one of my favorites, so I'm glad to have received this patch as a gift as well! made by StudioDwyer on Etsy.
I got a few more birthday gifts, but they're digital-only drawings... BUT! In the next few days I plan on printing all the digital images my friends drew for me and store them in a special section of my collection!! :D
That's it for gifts from other people. I have some things I had bought myself, so not birthday gifts, but that happened to arrive today.
First is the Mega Blaziken Figuarts figure! A bit smaller than I thought but AMAZING quality. I forgot to take more detailed photos, sorry! Maybe next time :D
And then there's this calendar. I got it since it had a tiny Hawlucha on the cover, so I was expecting to see more illustrations featuring my favorite Pokémon inside. But, this was not the case. I was so disappointed, the art in the calendar itself is very nice, colorful and HUGE! But I have no collecting use for most of the pages...
Here's a close-up of the only Hawlucha in the calendar. It's okay baby I still love you!
The only other two pages I kept. I love Fletchinder, Heliolisk, Luxio, Abomasnow and Bergmite, and my bro loves Pangoro, so we're gonna hang these as posters in our rooms.
I also took pictures of the other calendar pages I'm not keeping. Click on them to see bigger pictures. I would be willing to sell or auction these if anyone collects any Pokémon on there. I just know shipping will be difficult since they need to either be folded or rolled up and shipped in a tube. Let me know if you're interested in anything and we'll figure something out!
(I've had sales permission since 2007 and my feedback is here)
I finally have some desperate wants... D:
Hawlucha kids size Takara Tomy (?) shirts! I've asked a few people in Japan about them but they apparently can't be found in Pokémon centers! I think they might be sold in children clothes places or.. something. I have no idea?? Any hints on where to order them would be so so much appreciated ;_;
This Battle Wheel Strike gashapon toy has been eluding me for months!!! never ever seen it for sale anywhere, I'm desperate!
Manectric Mega Stone! I don't even know if it's been released yet, but I really need it ;_;
This is all for today! Next collection update will hopefully feature some AMAZING additions to my Hawlucha collection. Here's just a sneak peak, but THERE WILL BE MORE...
