Pre-Christmas Gets and Collection Site! **MAJORLY PICTURE HEAVY!**

I promise I'll actually post my Christmas/Birthday (my birthday is January 1st) before October next year! XD I do have another couple of shipments on the way, but I have a feeling that they'll probably get here around/after Christmas. Without further ado; my gets! :D

Since last I posted, I've started two main collections (Zoroark (with some Zorua) and Suicune) and I've actually started some side collections (Giratina, Victini, Darkrai, Magikarp/Gyarados, Beldum/Metang/Metagross).


My first new get was actually a gift from my best friend. He went to a convention in Oklahoma and brought this badge back for me. He doesn't really have a lot of money, so this is super special.

The next thing I got was the 1:1 Soothe Bell Victini plush! I wanted one when they came out, but I didn't have the money at the time. I thought for sure that it would be very hard to get ahold of this plush, that is, until renafan2004 posted their sales post with this cutie! They shipped him in a nice big box with a PC bag~

I finally got a Charizard Kyun Chara~! This little cutie came from ckoizumi MIP! The interesting thing about him is the fact that he has a fingerprint on the back of his right wing. It looks like it's in the paint of the inside of his wing. I think this is a cool little unique thing~ I wonder if this means that humans handle the figures when their paint is wet? Or maybe even paint them? I tried my best to photograph it, but it's in a really awkward place to photograph.

This was my first package from splash, and I'm super happy with it. The Charizard TOMY was more damaged than they were aware of, so they gave me a refund for him (just because I was willing to take him with his damage!). Splash was super nice about the whole thing... which is why I visited their sales again, and will in the future! They even made a little paper crane and sent it with a thank you note! One last thing that I'm wondering about is the Zoroark Kid. I've never seen a kid with sparkles in it (not that I have much experience with them) and I was wondering why my Zoroark was sparkly. Also, are there any other sparkly kids?
The Skittys are a gift for my girlfriend, but I thought I'd go ahead and add them in.

This next package was from Ebay and it upset me greatly. The three figures were tossed into a bubble mailer with no protection in between them! Zekrom and Reshiram are speckled with white/black marks respectively, and Kyurem has a huge white mark on one of his thighs (forgot to snap a pic of it) and a big black mark on the other (plus little speckles of both colors all over him)! I probably wouldn't care this much, but the Zekrom is a gift for my girlfriend and the damage could've easily been prevented (I mean, they could've just wrapped them in paper!)

This package was from Amazon~ Thanks so much absol for pointing this set out to me. I was looking for the normal Charizard TFG (because I already had the crystal), but I didn't expect to get pointed to a MIP set with one. I'm surprise because I think I like the normal one better than the crystal (which I really fawned over when I got it! I really love the details of the four figures, but, I've gotta say, Meowth's pose freaks me out. I'm SO paranoid that it's going to get broken! The Treeko TFG is probably what inspired me to start with a Treeko on Alpha Sapphire.

These two came from suzanneespeon They're both in good conditon and quite lovely... until you look at the Suicune. He's so silly looking and I love it~ His nose is so wonky~

As should be expected, I got ORAS~ I actually got two copies of each, but the other two went to my girlfriend. I'm currently playing Alpha Sapphire~ I have a Treeko and have been loving it so far. I actually couldn't pick between Treeko and Torchic, so I used the last digit of my Traner ID to help me decide (0-4 Treeko, 5-9 Torchic). I'm very happy with the started I got (he's a Grovyle now though~).So much nostalgia~

I got this one off of Ebay and I wasn't super excited to get this package. I have never been really fond of the pearly TOMYs because they don't look that good... in photos. When this beauty came in, I changed my mind completely! I absolutely love him~ He does NOT photograph well at all, even with flash off. I'm really happy with how good he is condition wise!

Next is my first package from Sunyshore! I've never ordered from there before, but I decided to when I saw both the Fennekin Snowman plush and the shiny Mega Metagross plush for sale. I decided to pick up the charm set and the shiny Mega Gengar plush while I was at it. I decided to pick them up just to prevent what I'd like to call the "red Gyarados effect," which is basically when I put something off due to price and then it gets super expensive and rare. I'm SO glad that I got the Mega Metagross! He's absolutely stunning and quite large!

I was actually surprised at how Sunyshore packages are sent! I got mine in a PC bag that was taped up with a shipping label slapped on it! O.O I'm hoping that I can get the tape off the bag and save it.

This next package was my first package from stephysanrio! They were super nice and gave really detailed photos to me before I bought from them~ This time I got some of the figures I really wanted (TOMY Houndour and Electrike) and some figures for my Giratina side collection (Origin and Altered TOMYs + Origin Move pose TOMY). The Houndour and Electrike are a little scraped up, but I'm really just happy to have these guys! I think the Origin alt pose is awesome... especially since he can wrap around my finger. XD

This was a small package from neeko48~ I decided to get this strap as an addition to my small Suicune collection~

This is my second package from Splash! I decided to pick up some stuff from them when I saw that they had a TOMY Kyogre recall plush for sale. I got really worried about this package mid-shipment when it went from the origin state to Houston (I live in Arlington, so packages usually got to Dallas, then come to me). Houston is WAY out of the way for a package coming to Arlington! On top of that, it sat at Houston for a whole day before it finally went to Dallas, then me. Once it finally arrived, I saw what had happened. The box was absolutely mangled! Luckily, everything arrived safely, despite the handling of the box.

The Beldum footprint figure sits at an odd angle (its peg is bent) and I was hoping that someone could give me some advice on what to do about it. If I can't fix it, then it'll just live at that odd angle XD The Charizard pen holder is so awesome! It doesn't even look like a pen holder~

Of course, the main aspect of this package is the TOMY Kyogre recall plush! I have to say that it's absolutely stunning! He's soft (almost like petting a small animal because of the length of the "fur" on his fabric) and really awesomely detailed! The markings on his fins and his eyes are embroidered, while the markings on the rest of his body are made with pipes of fabric. He's really huggable and cuddleable, though I won't sleep with him in my bed because of hie rarity and the reason he was recalled. I was wondering if there are any decently priced Kyogre plush that are around his size. I'd really like one to cuddle.

Lastly, I got another package from stephysanrio~ This time with a Vulpix, Ninetales, new color Spearow, Poochyena, new Charmander and old Charmander TOMYs! I actually went back to their sales post for the Poochyena and Spearow, but I decided to pick up the others when I saw them. I was hoping for a better condion Ninetales and Charmanders; and I really liked the color variant of the Vulpix. My Poochyena has a cute little scar by his nose~ The old Charmander isn't in the best shape, but I think it's cute that he has someone's name written on his foot. The Spearow TOMY is so pretty~ The color is so vibrant~

The last thing I'd like to mention is the fact that I made myself a collection site! It's still under construction due to the sheer amount of Pokemon merch I have. I'm planning on putting all of my merch up on the site, so it's very picture heavy! I'm mostly using this to keep track of what all I have (since quite a bit lives in boxes). I'm also making a wants page to keep track of all of that stuff. Here's the link: http://bluesden.weebly.com/

I just got done with finals, so I should be able to keep the updates rolling to my collection site~
