I AM IN AMERICAAAA
all sunyshore orders/bell plush etc were mailed before i left and it seems like some arrived already ;D good, good!

all i need now is two runner ups to email me their addresses: the two of you who wanted abra and glaceon.

enshogirl, i charged you that shipping thinking id have payment confirmation before i left, but i did not, so i brought the zukan home...and shipping probably wont cost $2.50 anymore, haha. want a refund or...? what can i do for you? just let me know ;D

scarsofsunlight and juumou, your sunyshore orders arrived safely in my suitcase ;D and junoluver, your mewtwo is here! meaning...


A BEAUTIFUL FOOT TALL ULTRA RARE PIDGEOTTO PLUSH WAS WAITING FOR ME WHEN I GOT HERE. OH HE IS SO BEAUTIFUL!! Although I remembered the downside to being in America... my sister grabbed Pidgeotto and ran away with him at top speed squealing (she is 21). I will have photos tomorrow ;D


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND for a whopping FOUR BUCKS i managed to get what will become one of the rarest japanese raichu items in my collection...INFLATABLE RAICHU. so rare i didnt know theyd made one - and i know what theyve made. I KNOW RAICHU.

and thanks to the three of you who listened to my excited ranting about this raichu all week. see, this ended when i was over the pacific, so if i got outbid (Y!J accounts have a limit unless you pay monthly) i solicited three souls to keep an eye on this. if all three of you got up/stayed up to watch, or none of you did, i dont care XD THANK YOU.

look at how amazing.




in other news, i think i accidently sent a gulpin stamp to one of you in sunyshore - OOPS - i am gonna make another bigger post about this but if you got it PLEASE TELL ME... i will pay you to ship it to juumou, who actually bought it.

Hello, all. :3

I've been a member of this community for a while, mostly a quiet lurker-type, although I've bought a couple small things from people here and commented on a few entries before.

I'm Audrey, and I collect Dark-type pokemon stuff, for I am a bit obsessed. Yay, obsession! Umbreon is my absolute favorite, with Tyranitar a veeeery close second. My collection is not very extensive, but it is slowly growing and I love it muchly (which means, no, it's not for sale).

Anywho. MY POKEMANS. LET ME SHOW YOU THEM (and let's hope I don't screw this up posting it, because I do not post to communities much).

Insert HM01 joke hereCollapse )

I have a question about the Leafeon pokedoll.
Why do so many of them on ebay don't have they're head leaf or whatever it is?

see? D: I don't get it.
Some have them but most don't and I was just wondering why?
Thanks!

It seems like I've been getting new things every day XD
I REALLLY love these cards I just got. You can't see it, but most of those have a different type of holofoil than regular ones. You can see what I mean in the LJ-cut. I've also really wanted that Mew card for quite some time. I know funkicarus gave me a nonholo American version a while ago, but it's always nice to have the Japanese holo, too :D

Really cool close-ups, more cards, and a mini $1 holo saleCollapse )

I've also semi-updated my collection post with these two new images!

Anothar cutCollapse )

You can see the rest of my card collection [HERE]
I want to actually take brand new pictures of my binder, because I've traded a few of the cards in that post away since.

FINALLY, I shipped out everybody's orders today, all 16 of them!

BOOTLEGS


i've seen an increase in posts about bootlegged figures/plushies/etc.

and a few of them are people saddened that they bought bootlegged figures.

now, some of us buy bootlegs for funny additions to a collection, or because some are even really good. its not a good thing to make these people think they can sell these items but...sadly, they can. i've even seen bidwars erupt over these terrible lots of bootlegs. these could be different from the picture or even painted with toxic paint (thanks to grrrowly for reminding me).... you leave a lot to chance when you buy a booty for any reason!

don't be fooled, don't be stupid. here are some simple steps you can take to check on a bootleg.


IS IT FROM HONG KONG/CHINA?

then it's a bootleg 99.9% of the time. nothing against china, but that is the country that makes these bootlegs that cause the issues. a few times though, these sellers appear to be located in american states (usually california). so here are some more steps.


ARE THE ITEMS IN A HUGE LOT OF FIGURES?

most likely bootlegged. really, its hard to avoid. i typed in "pokemon figure" to ebay. right now as i look, i see a total of ONE ITEM that is legit (a group of american figures in the original packaging). WOW.


ARE THE ITEMS SCARY BEYOND ALL REASON? DISCOLORED? MUTATED? UGLY?

bootlegs. dont just look at the pokemon you want - look at all of them. at least ten of them in a big lot will be horrifying, nightmare inducing. usually this number is around 75% mutants.


DOES THE PACKAGE HAVE CHINESE WRITTEN ON IT?

BOOOTLEG!!! but how can you tell chinese from japanese? look over some katakana and hiragana on the internet for a while, maybe learn some, and learn to tell it apart from kanji. learn to read it if you want - these are basic japanese characters and theres only about as much in each set as in our own alphabet, so why not learn? then you can use yahoo japan or google more easily when looking for your fav pokemon!

WATCH OUT THOUGH. lately some bootleggers got wise and have put japanese on their packages. this is usually TERRIBLE japanese tho, laden with the mistakes chinese people learning japanese make. when in doubt? ask me! i speak fluent japanese and the majority of foreign kids in my school are chinese kids (a really great bunch of kids!). i had six required japanese classes with them, i KNOW the mistakes chinese will make at japanese. and if i cant figure it out - ill check with the japanese person i live with!


THIS ITEM LOOKS OFFICIAL BUT ITS MISSING A BODY PART! WHAT?

this was recently posted... a leafeon with no leaf. this is actually NOT a bootleg! me and gogoicarus know this because of our learnings. ECTRANSFER on ebay is a chinese person who works in the toy factory in china that makes some pokemon plush, and takes(steals?) then sells the factory's reject plush on ebay. these are real things ... but they were rejected by pokemon company for a reason. might be interesting to add to a collection... but thats up to you! (BTW, these are usually pokedolls).

this just in; "enforever" also seems to be participating in the missing body part phenomena!


I SWEAR THIS ITEM LOOKS LEGIT...ITS FROM HONG KONG, BUT IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD!

heck... this happens! the thing to look for is; is this item listed on ebay about a gazillion times? then its probably booty. before the new "latias and raichu happy house" appeared on ebay, the major "looks legit bootleg" of raichu was this plushie (who turns into pikachu)



who is actually a bootleg of this official plushie (who turns into a pokeball)



remember, bootlegs are just molds or copies of real figures! sometimes they turn out quite good, even if they are a different size or color.


LAST BUT NOT LEAST....USE YOUR COMMON SENSE, AND WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK PKMNCOLLECTORS - BUT ONLY IF YOU REALLY CAN'T TELL!

come on people. bootlegs arent too hard to pick out. if you really want to avoid them, just check off these things on the list. if you honestly have something that meets nothing on this list but you still suspect a bootleg, then ask us. please don't make an ass of yourself and post daily asking about ugly figures from hong kong in big lots.

hope this helped! :) CHECK OUT THE COMMENTS FOR MORE HELPFUL TIPS!!!!

Once the rest of my mail arrives I will take pictures and whatnot to have a collection update post =D! SO hopefully everything else will get here soon ^_^

I am having a sale for the cards I am selling and I also have a few for auction under the cut. (the auction will stay up for a week (or longer, depending), and the sales will stay up until they sell xD)

Eeveelutions!Collapse )


HOWEVER...ANY *10* cards in This Picture are $4.00....Also, all the trainer/supporter/energy cards (outlined in green) are for $2.50!

If you have any question, or what a bigger picture of a card you are interested in...just ask and leave an email address I can send the picture to.
