Plush Auctions/Sales! (30 of them!)

Hey guys!
I received a lot of 30 Pokemon plush. They arrived smelling of old house and with some(water-caused?) brown stains. I made it my mission to clean them up, and did so perfectly by putting them in a pillowcase in the wash and dryer, on delicates. They cleaned up perfectly. A slight few needed some stitching and re-gluing, and I'll describe each in detail.
With that disclaimer out of the way,

Maaaaaay(Collection and note post)


Uh, I didn´t think that something can come before go this Wednesday, but I´ve received one shipment from SMJ. They´re the keychains from 11th Movie and... May & Manaphy figure for rinkatink! xD

For trainer_irene and rinkatink : I´m afraid to say that I can´t send your packages until 19th, because as I said, I´ll be on holidays from this Wednesday, I´m sorry!.
For jedi_amara : I´ve sent today your keychains, I hope that arrive well! ^^.

And now, the photos!

Received Items and Charms Shipped

I received a bunch of packages while my boyfriend was away so when I got to his house it was like my birthday, haha! I'm not sure exactly when they arrived but I received kids/figures from ambertdd , happyjolteon , regen , shuriken_chan , pheonixxfoxx , castform (thanks for the extra kid! I hope that wasn't a mistake ^^;). I hope I didn't forget anyone...

Anyhow~ I'm still awaiting packages from badgerr_ftw , kefanii , and pkmn_masta. (I think that's everyone)

Also, kefanii and wereblood , your charms were shipped saturday (sorry, that was the first opportunity to go to the post office). castform , your charms will ship tomorrow.

On a side note, charm shop commissions are still closed while I finish up art for customers on another site.

Sorry for all the usernames in this post! :-P

Turtwig Update.

So I was at Walgreens today and I went over to they toy section. Now usually the walgreens around me don’t stock anything good. Well I looked anyway to see if there were any hidden gems among all of the other toys. Well I was glad I looked because I found a Jakks Turtwig single pack! It was also the only Turtwig there. Now I know its not really rare or special but, the Toys R Us, Targets and KB Toys I go to no longer have them in single packs and I didn’t feel like getting a three pack with figures I wasn’t interested in such as Cherrim and Pikachu. I already had the Turtwig marble but there’s something different about it so I may keep it.

Collection Update, A Cautionary Tale, and a SALES POST

I recently bid on a huge lot of figures. The picture was small, but I could make out a Growlithe, some Stars, and a bunch of other popular Pokémon people collect, like Eevee and the Legendary Birds. I took a chance and bid high on the lot, because I figured I could easily make back what I spent, assuming these were from the same line of super small, super rare, high-quality figures I bought a few months back.
The user got their account suspended on eBay before I could pay. I browsed their feedback and saw one negative where they sold somebody a counterfeit designer purse. That should have tipped me off right away something was amiss. :/
So instead of forgetting about it like any sane person, I emailed them and asked if I could still have the lot. A Paypal address was given, and I got confirmation the items were shipped.
Got them today... the first thing I noticed was that they shipped it in a granola bar box that had been turned inside out. :/ Classy. And all the figures were stuffed together inside a ziplock bag. I paid collectable price for these, and they were treated like garage sale toys. And then I realized there were an AWFUL lot of what seemed to be bootlegs in there. >_< I was kicking myself, especially when I saw the Growlithe was the same in-case collection Growlithe I already own. About half the toys look legit, and half look really wonky. It's really hard to tell on a few of them though.
Moral of the story: Don't go nuts over something you only have a small picture of. And if someone is b& from eBay, there's probably a good reason for it.

Anyways, it's not all bad... here are the ones I decided to keep. I'm assuming some kind of water attack is supposed to be coming from Starmie's gem where there's a hole, but it wasn't included in the package. I love the Koffing, he looks high.

So anyways, I'm selling off all the figures I don't want. I'll take trades too (I'll even trade for another bootleg if it's a Pokémon I like!) Here is my trades wishlist: http://grrrowly.livejournal.com/385170.html

While many of these look very legit (for instance, this disgustingly cute Nidoking I am tempted to keep...), there ARE bootlegs included in this lot, so the safest thing would be to assume they are all fakes.

SALES POLICIES: I take paypal only. No holding of items- if you claim something and I don't hear back within 3 days, it goes back up for grabs. Shipping will be a flat $3 worldwide for up to 6 figures. Minimum order: $1

Important: When ordering, please include what you are buying in the Paypal memo! Even if I know you, this will help better my organization of orders. PLEASE don't forget!

Did You Get It?

Terribly sorry I've been missing in action - had a million things to do. Can anyone who's NOT received something from me but paid for it please let me know asap so I can look into it. To those of you who have received things, can you just let me know for piece of mind if nothing else. I hope everyone's doing well and I'm sorry I haven't really been so active this last month. My workload's been overtime. I don't want you guys thinking I've run off or anything though.

Hope you all had a great weekend

Packages, Target Sales and Burger King, Oh My!

Ah-ha! My prediction came true! I got my package from usakochan and one of my Ebay packages today!

Meanwhile, after Aipom had left with her "prizes" in tow, Buizel and Shellos discovered another package lying around...

Okay, but that's not all! Target had a bunch of their Pokemon stuff on sale so I got a couple of things that I've had my eye on for a while. Here they are:

Okay, that's it for now...I'm  waiting on a couple more things (like my awesome Buizel Kid!) to arrive, so I'll have more pictures later.

have you ever found yourself suddenly liking and collecting a pokemon you'd basically hated a week or even a day ago?

it was with the announcement than this summer would not be all shaymins but also include some new giant plushies of rarely-merched pokemon, that i stared and stared at the ambipom plushie. i want it. it's cute and ambipom is a sunyshore pokemon trained by volkner. it belongs with me. but its huge and i already will have shinx and luxray. so wtf....? i always disliked ambipom >=( wtf, really? i'm having an internal battle over this plush. get a huge plush i have no room for? or don't get it and regret it later when its not in machines and expensive on auction?

when at toys r us in ikebukuro the other day, aftertheheaven threw this little guy into my basket. i stared at her. she said "its in there, you can't take it out now." she was right. not only couldnt i, but i didnt want to.

now i feel like i need octillery kids.... welcome to my mini sunyshore gym playset, complete with rotating platforms. and ambipom kid. AUGH! (BTW, i've had that particular raichu kids for about 7 years now, a gift from the same aftertheheaven long ago :D)

so yeah. ever had a similar expierience?

anyway, BIG updates on collections this weekend, as i have so many coming soon raichus and lions @_@ that the coming soon images are all huge and crazy XD

aaaaand all paid-for sunyshore orders will be out by tuesday/wednesday, just to repeat :)


because my first tiny post here ( the one with the flashy icon) was so... dramatic i decided there had to be a better way to introduce myself and try to erase the first impression.

my name is mia, and just today i turned 17.
SOME of my favorite pokemon are growlithe, skitty, torchic, chimchar, houndour, the eevees, aipom, lotad, poochyena, and cyndaquil.

i don't have much of a collection yet but i really want to start one. i'm not even really familiar with the terms of all the different types of figures. if anyone has any tips or things they think i should know feel free to enlighten me. i am really looking forward to forging a bond with the people in this community.

i hope you welcome fresh blood!


AND PS i really love the mystery dungeon franchise
