Hello, I'm eX.A.K.R. and I'm new around here, though I have lurked around for a bit before deciding to join this community. I'm 21, and is from Singapore (which - trust me - is a sort of a mini-Pokétopia
with the death penalty
), and I more-or-less randomly collect Pokémon merchandise and such. I don't consider my collection large (especially when compared with some of the collections I have seen around here), but I don't consider it small either.
I have been collecting merchandise since about 2005, not long after my interest in Pokémon was rekindled. Prior to that, I have virtually no collection even though I was a fan from as early as 1999 to about 2002 or 2003. My current collection consists mostly of Zukans and other figures, as well as some McDonald's toys; I have just begun to collect Pokémon chirashi (mini-posters), and so far I have the ones from the last 3 movies before movie 11, as well as the one from movie 4.
I joined this community not to sell items (although I may
consider selling items in the future), as my collection is generally not in the best of shape (dust and mould is a serious problem in my home D: ). I joined mainly to request help for buying Pokémon items that may not be available in Singapore, or no longer available generally (such as the Pokémon 151 t-shirts - more on that at a later date when I'm ready). I might trade items from time to time, but most likely I will be responding to trade requests rather than requesting trades myself, and probably only do it alongside a purchase.
Some of you might recognise me from The Pokémon Community and Bulbagarden Forums, both of which I have since left. I still visit their chat rooms on SystemNet IRC though, so you can look for me there if you need to.
And just to start things off here, I have took some fresh photographs of my collection. As it's very image heavy, I had to make multiple cuts so you can skip any part you might not want to look at. Note also that I took the photographs at different times of the day over a span of a few days, so this explains the lightning differences. Also, apologies if some photographs are blurry or bad - I don't have the most stable of arms, and I was not that focused on taking good photographs when I was snapping away at my collection.( Collapse )( Collapse )( Collapse )
