Could a few people I've bought from/bought from me/traded with please leave me some feedback? I'll happily return the favor if you provide me with a link. LINK

Also... this is a bit of a random question but I figured I'd give it a try. I'm quite in love with the few pen and paper/tabletop role plays I've been doing the past two years. I'm not super knowledgeable about many systems yet, I know DnD and WoD well enough. GURPS and Heroes I've briefly touched on.. but what I wanted to ask was if anyone knew anything about these systems (or others like it) what would be some good ideas for making a tabletop Pokemon? You know, with dice and character sheets. Hah think of putting your TOMY figures to a whole new purpose....

But honestly, if anyone has any neat ideas on that front (how to work skills, stats, evolving, type advantages, STAB stuff, items, etc.), I'm jumping to hear them.

Great news! I used Akibado instead of Crescent Shop and managed to win that huge Kids group auction! 60 very cool Kids are now mine. :] Hopefully the shipping fees won't be too outrageous. I'll update y'all once they're in my hands.

Other update:
Almost everybody I reserved items for from that other lot has paid for them, the only ones I haven't heard from are:
light_venusaur: Small Dragonite keychain - $1 and
kari_xiii: Large Blastoise keychain and Ash stamp - $4

No obligation to get the items, just wanted to make sure you guys knew they were in. Everyone who's paid, they're shipping out today!

In other words, Nef got mail. :D And from qubeley, too! Have hope! :D



EDIT! I have received word from home that my Bell Plushies and such have arrived from Sunyshore! My brother unpacked everything over the phone for me. I can't wait to get them on Friday! :D Expect posting when I do. Also, he said the items were very well wrapped and that the package was cute. n_n Thanks Gin! :D

Also! My Amity Square Pokemon Painting Auction ends at midnight EST. If anyone is interested. n_n;


All the pictures were taken with my cell phone because I am impatient. ;_; Also hungry. xD And I keep hearing the AIM noise in my head. ;_;

[ Official Rules & Guidelines | Community Feedback | Group Auctions | Sales Permission | Wall of Shame ]


WELCOME TO COMMUNITY RULES AND GUIDELINES!

CTRL+F (or "search page"/"find on page") IS YOUR FRIEND!
Copying and pasting rules to members you believe are breaking them is also your friend!
LAST UPDATED: June 17th, 2013. Comments and ideas are welcome!

Welcome to PKMNCollectors! We are a very close-knit community of members who love to buy, trade, sell, and collect all types Pokemon merchandise! You may think you are joining just to have access to rare Pokemon goods, but beware; you'll probably end up with a hundred new friends instead! Introduce yourself, post photos of your collections, admire other collections, and HAVE FUN!!! But first... READ THE RULES!






CHECK MODPOST TAG
Modposts are friendly, monthly reminders from your community moderators!
Please read the modpost tag to find out which rules are being broken frequently,
and what to do to avoid contributing to an annoying trend!

[ Link to Banhammer ]


You COULD officially be banned for the following reasons!

1. Stealing, lying, or swindling members.
2. Trolling or showing negative, anti-pokemon or anti-collecting behavior.
3. Exhibiting abusive, racist, sexist, aggressive, or threatening behaviors.
4. Sexual harassment.
5. Backing out of bids on Group Auctions.
6. Having more than 3 (three) negative feedbacks (depending on their severity).
7. Being reprimanded/contacted more than 3 (three) times by a moderator.
Temporary Bans may be issued if:
●◎You back out of too many sales.
●◎You constantly delete bids/comments referring to the purchase of an item.
●◎You are being over-dramatic, immature, or rude towards others.
You will have your sales permission automatically revoked if you get 3+ negative feedbacks or warnings as an unreliable seller. The list of members with revoked sales permission or under any kind of partial or total ban can be seen here.


[ Link to General Rules ]

THIS IS A COMMUNITY ABOUT POKEMON MERCHANDISE.
If the focus of your post is NOT Pokemon merchandise, it is OFF TOPIC. Of course discussing your in-game team, anime happenings, even cameos by merchandise of other franchises are OK, as long as they are not the focus of the post. Off-topic posts (new Pokemon info, for example) may occasionally be posted by a moderator.
This also means NO NON-POKEMON MERCHANDISE MAY BE SOLD ON THE COMMUNITY WHATSOEVER. If you have a sales post on your personal journal please keep your non-Pokemon items on a completely separate post. If you do not want to do this you do not have any obligation to advertise your sales here. You may link to your non-Pokemon sales on a sales post hosted in your own LJ. Non-Pokemon items in GA lots are the one exception to this rule.

DO NOT ADVERTISE SALES OF ANY KIND UNTIL YOU HAVE SALES PERMISSION.
Because of the size and nature of this community, we have to be VERY strict about our sales permission rules. Until you have sales permission here, you may not advertise sales of any kind, no matter where they are located, including your personal LJ, Deviantart, Etsy, eBay, or FurAffinity. "Referring someone to your art gallery" is not a loophole to get around this rule. Don't try it, please. Note that this ALSO includes posts "gauging interest in/price checking" potential sale fodder. Save it for when you have permission.

DO NOT POST MORE THAN ONCE PER DAY
Our community is extremely large, and by posting multiple times per day you are cluttering up the page. The only exception to this is if you’re posting about NEWLY ANNOUNCED MERCHANDISE. Otherwise, your post will be deleted. This rule does not mean you SHOULD post once a day every day. Please do not do this unless every single post has new and original material.

DO NOT POST TO ADVERTISE, PROMOTE, PRAISE OR ENDORSE ANY BOOTLEG GOODS.
Please scroll down or click here for more information.

DO NOT ALTER THE FONT OF YOUR ENTIRE POST.
You are not allowed to change colors or size of font. The only permissible font changes are bold, italics, underline, strikethrough, or a slightly larger text used for a post's TITLE ONLY or some other sort of announcement.

DO NOT POST AUCTIONS IN PROGRESS.
This is no longer allowed. These posts are often called “cool yahoo japan/ebay finds,” and are often abandoned right after being posted, which is unfair to the people already bidding on them who do not want their auctions advertised to add to the competition.

DO NOT MAKE DRAMATIC POSTS, “I AM LEAVING” POSTS, or "EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE IS TERRIBLE" ETC. POSTS.
These are completely unnecessary, serve no useful purpose, and are also completely off topic. Leave personal entries to your personal livejournal. When in doubt, ask yourself if many thousands of people really need - or want - to be reading it.

DO NOT ASK THE COMM TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR FINANCES/PURCHASES.
No posts asking, “who do I owe money to?” Keep a record of your purchases/sales and contact members privately via LJ PM, email, or AIM. You can find GA's easily by looking up the LJ name of the runners using http://community.livejournal.com/pkmncollectors/?poster=LJ USERNAME HERE. Obviously, making posts asking the comm to help find sellers and GA runners who you cannot get a hold of does not fall under this rule, and is permissible.

NO EXCESSIVE MINI-MODDING.
A member breaking a rule should only be told once of their infraction. Feel free to copy/paste a rule from this page if you are unsure of how to be polite when pointing out rule-breaking.

ALL UN-CUT PHOTOGRAPHS MUST BE UNDER 500 pixels wide and 500 pixels tall.
Otherwise they must be under an LJcut. NO exceptions. Please refer to our LJ cut guide for instructions on how to properly use a cut. If your un-cut images are over 1000 pixels large, please resize the actual image down to 500 pixels or less in width or height. Using HTML does not actually change the size and will slow down computers.

KEEP PHOTOS ON TOPIC.
If pokemon is not the central focus of your photos, your post is OFF-TOPIC and will be deleted. Also, “camwhoring” or “myspace” type photos will NOT be tolerated.

DO NOT MAKE "BEGGING" POSTS (REQUESTING GROUP AUCTIONS OR Y!J MIDDLEMEN)
If you do not have sales permission and/or have found a lot you want GA'd but want to take no part in it, you may NOT post to the community asking for it to be GA'd by other people.
If you have sales permission, you may make posts requesting a partner to help you run the group auction, but these posts MUST be deleted once a partner is found. Do NOT partner with someone you do not know.
There are dozens of deputy services for bidding on Y!J. If you wish to bid or buy on Y!J please sign up for one of them. You may not ask someone on the community to use their deputy service for you.  This rule only applies to Yahoo!Japan. Middlemen requests for countries besides Japan are fine (as there are no deputies available or fees involved).
Do NOT post asking for "someone in Japan" to do special favors or store runs for you. Members who are in Japan are not there for YOUR convenience and not everyone enjoys doing free errands for random people. If a member in Japan is willing to sell Pokemon goods, or has permission to do a store run, they will post about it.

●◎DO NOT COMMENT ON SALES ASKING FOR LOWER PRICES (unless haggling is specifically being accepted)
●◎DO NOT COMMENT ON SALES COMPLAINING THAT YOU’RE BROKE
●◎DO NOT COMMENT ON SALES WHINING THAT YOU MISSED AN ITEM
●◎DO NOT COMMENT TO MEMBERS BUYING/BIDDING ON WHAT YOU WANT TO MAKE THEM FEEL BAD.

All of these types of comments serve absolutely no useful purpose and are considered poor manners.

[ Link to Rules for Sellers ]


BEFORE YOU SELL OR ADVERTISE YOUR AUCTIONS YOU MUST ASK PERMISSION BEFORE POSTING A SALES POST. Click the link to find out how to get permission! Your sales posts will be deleted without warning otherwise!

POST YOUR INFORMATION!
Be sure to always include two important things: Which mod approved you for sales permission (and when, if possible), and a link to your feedback page. You will be asked to please add these two items if you forget.

HAVE CLEAR GUIDELINES
Make your rules clear! Do you accept other forms of payment besides paypal? Do you ship internationally? Do you accept trades? These are all good examples of questions you need to answer in your sales rules.

Sellers should state their policies on buyer's priority to an item. If they do not have a policy, the community default rule is as follows:

-If the item in question is a custom-made item.The first to commit* to a sale is the first to get the item.
-Timestamps will determine who committed first, regardless of edits or additional comments.
*To commit to an item, a buyer must clearly state they will purchase the item(s). Examples of commitment are "I'll take it" or "I will buy it, with shipping to (location)." Simply asking for a quote ("How much is shipping?" or "How much to (location)?"), asking a question, or otherwise inquiring about the item does not count as a commitment. If you definitely want to purchase an item, make sure you clearly state that! If you are ambiguous you risk forfeiting the purchase if someone commits first, even if they comment after your question or inquiry.

A seller can change this rule in their policies, I.E., give people asking for quotes first claim over those who commit. Therefore you must carefully read all the seller's policies before commenting. If the seller does not specify a change from the community standard regarding claims and commitments to buy, the community standard rule is automatically applied.

Using the terminology "Auction", "Offer", or "OBO (Or Best Offer)"
-All three MUST have a set starting price.
-An auction has a set ending time. All bids must be higher than the starting price.
-An item up for offer does not have a set ending time and the seller may end it whenever they receive an offer they wish to accept. All offers must be higher than the starting price.
-OBO means the seller will accept an offer LOWER than the starting price. If the starting price is offered at any time, the offers are considered ended and the sale complete.
END AUCTIONS ON TIME
Do not provide an end time for your auctions and then change it suddenly. This is unfair to bidders and does not reflect well on you as a seller. Also be aware of the community wide auction extension that also applies to ALL seller's community auctions.

ONLY ONE REMINDER ALLOWED
Each member is only allowed ONE "reminder post" for your auctions/best offers/store runs/group auctions/anything you are running. We do not need a reminder once a day for a week about the same items. This rule applies to a post whose sole purpose is a reminder, simple text reminders added to your posts are not limited.

DO NOT ACCEPT MONEY FOR GOODS YOU DO NOT HAVE IN HAND
There are two special cases where this is allowed. Please see the Group Auction Rules & Guidelines and store runs section for more information on these exceptions.

DO NOT UPDATE MORE THAN ONCE PER DAY WITH YOUR SALES
Either update your sales post or don’t update the community. No one wants to see the same ten items over and over. This does not mean you can post once a day every day with your sales. Only post your sales when you have made a dramatic change in stock.

SET CLEAR STARTING PRICES FOR AUCTION/BEST OFFER STYLE SALES
If you wish to take offers on an item, or auction it off, you must have clear starting prices. If you are taking offers, you MUST start them at the lowest possible price you would sell the item for. This is to protect sellers from lowball offers, and to protect buyers from feeling tricked into bidding more to reach some invented "reserve price".

BAN NON-PAYING BUYERS AND BIDDERS FROM YOUR SALES TO AVOID FUTURE PROBLEMS
If a buyer consistently causes you drama, backs out of sales, is slow to pay or in general does not follow your sales rules, ban them from your sales or from GA's you run as well as leaving them a negative feedback. Also check a member's feedback before dealing with them if you have any suspicions. It is your right to ban anybody from your sales who does not follow your rules or has too many negatives.

ALL SALES POSTS MUST ABIDE BY COMMUNITY RULES
All sales posts advertised on the community must follow community rules, regardless of whether the post is hosted in your own journal or directly on the community.Therefore DO NOT allow banned members to participate in sales or auctions in your journal. If you don't like it, you do NOT get to advertise your personal sales on this community.

THE 35-DAY RULE
If your buyer does not receive their item within 35 days of payment and especially if you are difficult to contact, a paypal dispute will be opened. Sellers- keep receipts and other proof of shipment (if possible) in case a buyer becomes suspicious and/or dispute is opened or if you need to prove a package was “lost”.

Exceptions:
If the buyer chose seamail, as this is the slowest form of shipping.
If a natural disaster or strike is affecting the mail system.
If the item in question is a custom-made item.
KEEP YOUR SALES, AUCTIONS, AND TRADES IN ORDER
This should be obvious. Buyers will leave negative feedback if they feel you are unreliable or untrustworthy. Keep good records, keep a clean sale post, be clear and be honest, make money and have fun!
NOTIFY CUSTOMERS WHEN ITEMS ARE SHIPPED
To make it easy for buyers to check if and when their items were sent, either edit your entire sales post once items have been shipped (include a date of shipping), or send individual comments to your buyers alerting them. A brand new community post is not required to alert buyers that items have shipped. Please choose one of the two options mentioned here (edit or comment).

[ Link to Rules for Buyers ]

HAVE PAYMENT READY
If using paypal, pay immediately. NO EXCUSES! Otherwise read seller’s rules about holds or paying with other methods (check, money order, concealed cash) and politely request the seller accommodate your circumstances.

DO NOT BACK OUT OF A SALE
Do not comment with intent to buy and later say “nevermind.” Do this and you will be banned. Keep in mind sellers are allowed to “ban” certain members from their personal sales.

ASK FOR SHIPPING QUOTES BEFORE COMMITTING TO BUY
Inquiring about shipping before you commit to buy is allowed, so long as you make it clear that is what you’re doing. If the shipping ends up being more than you expected, thank the seller and say you’re not interested. Keep in mind sellers in Australia, Canada, and various other places often have higher shipping costs due to their country's postal system and this is NOT their fault.

REPLY TO SELLERS
If you asked for a shipping quote, a hold on an item, or specifically said you are going to purchase it, respond to the seller. Ignoring a seller is not a legit way to get out of acting responsible. Even if what you have to say is "No thanks" it is better than leaving the seller wondering.

BID IN AUCTIONS PROPERLY TO AVOID CONFUSION
Make sure all of your bids in community auctions are a reply to the bid before yours. If your bid is not a reply to the bid before it, it does not count! If you are seen continuously placing last-second "sniping" bids on purpose, you will be warned.

READ SELLER’S RULES BEFORE COMMENTING ON SALES
Sellers will get angry if it’s clear you aren’t following their rules and may refuse to sell to you.

BEWARE OF BOOTLEGS!
These are simply our community guidelines designed to keep collectors safe from accidentally buying and/or promoting companies that willfully steal designs and mass produce fakes.
YOU MAY NOT POST ADVERTISING, PROMOTING, PRAISING OR ENDORSING ANY BOOTLEG GOODS.
We do not condone supporting companies that mass produce bootlegged copies or rejects of official merchandise. Please refer to our bootlegs guide in our Tutorial Archive for clarification as to what bootlegs are. You may sell bootleg items, as long as they are CLEARLY LABELED, only because the items are already purchased and no more money will be going back to the companies.

Having a bootleg in your collection is obviously allowed, and you are allowed to have it in photos, but please do not do entire posts focusing solely on proven bootleg items in your collection. Likewise, please avoid pointing them out specifically in your collection updates, which could spark unwanted debate and drama. (What about "Mirage Plush"?)

Linking to a store that sells bootlegs counts as promoting that store, even if you only wish to confirm if they are bootlegs or not. It is okay to post an image to check if the item is a bootleg, but only if you have already done the preliminary checks:

●Are there dozens of the same item for sale across Ebay, etc?
●Are multiple sellers using the same stock image of this item?
●Is the item deformed looking?
●Is the seller located in China/Hong Kong?

Keep in mind not all bootlegs match everything in this checklist, and not every seller in China/Hong Kong is selling bootlegs. Many bootleg stores advertise their location as being California, Australia, etc., and some bootlegs do not look deformed in their stock image.

The sellers with the "12 Inch" plush are all bootleggers. Most patterns are copies of official plush, or stolen from custom artists and their customers, who were in some cases, PKMNcollectors.ANY POST INQUIRING IN ANY WAY ABOUT THE "12 INCH" PLUSH WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DELETED, no matter how "cool and original" they may seem.

WHAT ARE MIRAGE PLUSH? HOW DO I TELL ONE APART FROM A BOOTLEG?
For detailed information, you can check this post or the Mirage Plush tag. In short, Mirage Plush:

1. Are old (so far nothing beyond Gen II has been found), made at least a decade ago.
2. They were not mass-produced (very few have ever been seen).
3. They have unknown origins (probably unlicensed), but ARE company-made, with limited-info tush tag or none at all, and created by small/independent companies.
4. They are created from a 100% unique pattern (not a reject or a copy of an existing product).

Bootlegs, in comparison:

1. Are made of toys from any time period, and the most rampant are often copied from new items.
2. Are a mass-produced copies and/or mass produced "factory rejects" (unlike a factory error item, which would be rare, factory rejects which are usually missing body parts are for some reason found in the thousands).
3. They come from proven bootleggers. This can be proven easily by checking the seller's other items for sale, which will often be other mass produced copies and fakes of official products.
4. They are copies and fakes of official products, not unique patterns or designs, and occasionally copies of custom artist's works.

[ Link to Special Notices ]

ABOUT NEGATIVE AND NEUTRAL FEEDBACK!
A neutral feedback is not a serious strike but it will warn other members if someone's behavior was questionable during a transaction, without permanently scarring their record for what may have been a misunderstanding or an unavoidable personal situation. Neutral feedback should be used when:
-The item/payment was received but not in a reasonably timely manner (over a month but under three months).
-The item's packaging (on part of the seller, not the post office) or condition (as compared to how it was described) is questionable. ALWAYS talk to the seller about these situations before leaving a feedback.
-The seller/buyer's behaviour was questionable, uncomfortable, impolite or annoying.
-The seller/buyer backed out of the deal at a very late stage (best determined on case by case basis).
A negative feedback is to be left when you feel ripped off or abused by a seller/buyer. They are a serious strike against a member and must only be used in extremely appropriate situations. Negative feedback should be used when:
-You never received your item or payment.
-More than three months passed before you received your item or payment (custom items usually excluded).
-The seller/buyer was extremely rude, pestering, lying, manipulating, etc.
ABOUT JOINING THE COMMUNITY / MEMBERSHIP REQUESTS!
Our community uses a moderated membership system. You must have a LiveJournal account to become a member of the community. (We are currently unable to approve Facebook or Google accounts.)

If you have a well-established LiveJournal account from before 2011 with many entries, we will probably approve you as a member with ease.

If you have a newer LiveJournal account with no journal entries, you may be rejected as a member. To be accepted as a member, please add some information about yourself on your profile and make a journal entry before requesting membership. This entry should contain one or more photos of your collection and a paragraph introducing yourself. You can include information about yourself, why you want to join PKMNCollectors, your favorite Pokemon, your email, your country, etc. This will help us approve your membership much more quickly!

Sometimes we cannot approve your membership because you have not validated your email account with LiveJournal. In this case, we are automatically forced by LJ to reject you. Make sure your email is validated.

ABOUT CUSTOMS AND ARTWORK!
This is NOT an art community. You may only take commissions in which the buyer gets a physical piece of art (examples: keychains, sculptures, jewelry, paintings, plush). NO DIGITAL ART. NO ICON COMMISSIONS. Take it to poke_arts if you’re unsure.

Custom artists WITH sales permission may only post about their custom work twice a month UNLESS you are hosting an auction for a commission slot or a finished item, in which case you may post once advertising the auction and again as a reminder, for a total of FOUR custom posts a month. Mixing your customs posts with your regular posts is NOT a loophole to get around this rule, sorry.

Custom artists WITHOUT sales permission are only permitted to post about custom work that is part of your collection. Do not make "Look what I made!" posts to gauge interest in your products. You are not permitted to link to your DeviantArt or plush shop unless you have sales permission.

ABOUT TRADING!
You may trade once you have A) Sales permission or B) 10 positive feedbacks from the community (eBay feedback doesn't count). Naturally you can trade in PM with people - however PMs are private and not under the jurisdiction of the community and could be very risky. Do not trade with anybody you don't know.
ABOUT PRICE CHECKS!
Price check posts are currently not permitted on the community. Please use our "Price Check Guide" for help on performing your own price checks.
ABOUT CURRENT STOCK AT ____ POSTS!
Posts asking "What's the current stock at Epcot/Nintendo World?" are no longer allowed. You are able to check the stock at these locations by calling the stores directly.

Nintendo World: (646) 459-0800
Mitsukoshi (Epcot): (407) 827-8513
ABOUT AUCTION EXTENSIONS!
If a bid is placed within the last five minutes of an auction, the bidding will extend AN EXTRA FIVE MINUTES and CONTINUE to extend UNTIL AN ENTIRE FIVE MINUTES HAS PASSED WITH NO BIDS. This extension automatically occurs automatically; no notices need to be left by a mod or seller.

ABOUT STORE RUNS/PICK-UPS!
A store run/pickup (the same thing) is when a member goes to the store to bring back items requested by other members.

To do a pickup in your area, you do not need to obtain special permission.
--Pickups for items from "local comic book stores" or similar will require photos of the actual stock. These stores are usually only stocked with bootleg items.

To do a pickup while on vacation but still in your own country, please contact denkimouse at denkimouse[@]gmail[.]com to obtain permission.
--Include information such as the length of your visit and method of travel.
--Pickups while on vacation are limited to the amount of items that can comfortably be taken home.

To do a pickup while on vacation/temporarily staying in a foreign country, please contact denkimouse to obtain permission.
--Keep in mind, most requests to do pickups while on vacation abroad will be turned down automatically.*
--Include information such as the length of your stay and method of travel.

●If staying longer-term (study abroad, etc), please include the following in your request:
--Are you able to speak and understand the native language?
--How do you plan to calculate postage? Please include an example shipping quote for an example order.
--Have you located a post office and place to purchase packaging supplies?

●If a pickup while abroad is approved, a maximum of ten slots (ten customers) may be taken. If the stay is long term and the first pickup receives good feedback and goes smoothly, approval to increase number of slots can be obtained. Permission to do a pickup abroad must be received for each new pickup. If the stay abroad is a year+, a more permanent pickup permission can be discussed after the first three successful pickups.

*The reason for this is that many vacations do not last beyond 2-3 weeks, and based on past experiences we no longer feel it is a good idea to allow pickups to be done within a week or two of having landed in a foreign country. Many have also voiced that while they expected a pickup would be a fun experience during their vacation, it ended up being very hard work that took up most of their time abroad, and in a few cases the pickup was not completed for months/years due to confusion and lack of time.

ONCE YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO DO A PICK UP...
●You may take payment as you choose (before, after, or in 2 parts), but no matter how payment is taken: The 35 day rule still applies. That means you cannot begin accepting money for an item that is not coming out for many months! The items must be coming out within three weeks of when you take payments.
●Please do not try to maintain more than two ACTIVE store run/pick ups at one time. Note that this only applies to pickups actively collecting money at the time. The limitation does not apply to letting people claim slots months ahead of time with no money being collected yet.
●Special permission for whatever reason to take deposits or payments beyond a month early must be acquired before attempting it. Contact the community owner (denkimouse) to obtain permission. This is an extremely rare circumstance and certain agreements must be made and adhered to. This permission will be lost is the agreement is broken or abused.
●If you are doing a store run at a popular location (IE, Pokemon Center kiosk) or for a popular item, please be courteous and do not post your own store run immediately after someone else posts a similar one. It would be best to wait until a different day if this is the case so everyone has a chance -- use common courtesy.

I have received my order of Sunyshore, and my figures of lightofapollo and featherclaw . Thank you guys! ^_^.

But, was not in my house. The order of Sunyshore I have to go tomorrow (I have the paper-notice that I arrived, only), and the Zukan of Riolu&lucario's got my boyfriend now, but tomorrow I have the two packages ^-^.

The only that I have right now is Leafeon's chou get of  featherclaw . I love this figure...ah!, Thank you for the Eevee sticker and little draw of Leafeon in the pack <3, you are very kind ^_^.

The figure and sticker:




The cute draw <3 :




And my little cute Leafeooooooon~~ :




I'm sorry that the photos are poor quality, but my camera not have batteries now and I use the mobile for the photos ^^U...

P.d: A little gif <3~~

I recently came across a fantastic ebay find. A set of battle museum/stadium figures, brand new, and sealed! I ended up getting a lot of doubles in the set, so I just opened one of each to show what they look like assembled! To find these in brand new condition....I was shocked!

As with quite a few of you, so far, I also got my package today from qubeley087. ^_^ I'm relieved to say the least. I lifted the Paypal claim right away. I also received goods from happyjolteon. :3 I love the Pokekids! Thank you! I'll leave you feedback right after I'm done posting this. Here's a pic of my ever growing Riolu collection, plus the other goods I got in the mail. :)


Tis small, I know. ^^; It will grow over time. The Riolu Pokedoll and kid, plus Darkrai are from qubeley087. :3 The three cute kids in the far right corner are from happyjolteon. ^_^ OH! I forgot to include the Riolu phone strap I got from her. ;_;

Just a reminder that my Pokemon Center Eevee Plush auction ends today. A good few of you seemed interested, I figured I'd let everyone know shortly before it ends. It's got about 3 hours left or so.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=230248560825

I also want to thank anyone who bid and/or gave me advice on how to sell the little guy. I have a couple more plushes that I bought at the Pokemon Center before its tragic transformation, and I might sell them in the future. Good luck to everyone bidding!

I've found a Pikachu bell plush on Y!Japan, and I really want to bid on it, but I can't log in to SMJ. I contacted the site, but the guy said that I needed to make a deposit to verify my account. Can I do this without being logged in? Does anyone know how? Or even if someone could bid for me and I could pay fully for the shipping and the item itself, that would be great too.
Thank you, kiraras_lemon, for offering to bid! Good luck!

Here's the auction: [link]

Also... I'd like to apologize for my last post about the eBay bidding and whatnot. I didn't realize that bidding to raise the price was illegal. I feel.. well.. I was kind of hurt by a few of the comments. Most of them weren't doing any more than trying to set me straight, but the other couple were unnecessarily rude and a little hurtful. And it bothered me even more that, instead of telling me that what I was doing was illegal, people just kept bartering me with how wrong it was. Honestly, if someone had brought the background info to my attention, I think there wouldn't have been such a mess. But I do apologize for what I did, and I'm never going to do it again. Cool?

Oh, and while I'm posting, I might as well add that I've gotten a bunch of stuff in the mail from you guys (most recently aftertheheaven and 216handsbound) and my Pachirisu collection just keeps getting bigger! I saw what a lot of you had done with the cards and such going in card albums, so I ordered something of the like from Gin and I'll use it for said task. Unfortunately, I kinda broke my mum's camera and I don't know when it'll be fixed, so no collection updates for a while. I was thinking of doing a room tour like pikabellechu did, even though my room is a lot smaller.

Anyway, I feel better now getting that off my chest. And I hope there's no hard feelings, cause this community is so great. < 33 seeyas~

Hey guys! Just a quick shop update

Everything is going to be mailed out tomorrow and Wednesday, so if you want anything to go out with that batch, nows the time! This will be my last sales post for a few weeks. But look for a collection post this week!

(Fake cut to the store!)
 
 
 
Baby, I'm bad news.

These have been done for about a week, but I was waiting for the little coloured bells I bought to arrive before I photographed them... The Torchic was a birthday present for my brother (his birthday was yesterday! :D) and he loved her! I made the Luxio for myself, as I have the Luxray UFO plushie hanging on a shelf all by herself.....and I need the shelf to look nice and even. XD

Onto the plush photos!

So I've been waiting to do a real collection update until I got a decent amount of new arrivals, and I decided that upon receiving two much-anticipated items in the mail that I have accumulated enough new stuff to warrant an update. :) However, since I did wait so long, it will be a rather pic-heavy post. So there's your warning!



Lots and lots of pics!Collapse )

Show me your DS-related Pokemon items! I just recently bought a DS Lite and I'm looking to buy a skin! I'm also looking to buy really cute charms that could go on it!

Thanks!

Hello Darkness My Old Friend....
05 May 2008 @ 10:02 pm
So today I mailed stuff off! Tomorrow the rest of the stuff goes out (I had so much) sorry folks ^^; Be on the look out okay?

Today my friends threw me a mini pokemon party since I had a pretty bad night last night. (long story) They got me a new Darkrai packaged deal thing, that came with the jumbo card, and the promo. I must say Ive never owned a jumbo card but its amazing.

And new package came in. Click the cut for details!
