It is time to update rules about group auctions/group purchases! It is a shame that we must! :< Please read them through before commenting, but do feel free to comment with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. And because its inevitable, this post was not spawned by one single person's doings, and has been talked about and worked on for weeks. So don't bother commenting with your apologies, it's okay, it really is :D

first of all, you can read all the old group auction rules HERE, and these will be added once we've gotten feedback from you all.

UPDATED RULES AND GUIDELINES! these will be strict, i won't lie! we cannot mess around with the large sums of money that pass back and forth on this community. read with that in mind.

Backing out of paying for your part in a group auction is inexcusable. If you have ever run one, you understand how much it hurts the entire effort when someone does not pay or changes their mind after it is too late. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN A GROUP AUCTION OR PURCHASE IF YOU ARE NOT SURE IF YOU CAN PAY. Don't forget that fees and shipping will be added on top of your bid, and they can sometimes be more or less than expected. If you think the organizer is charging too much, feel free to request a copy of the invoice. It is usually VERY expensive.

IF YOU ARE CAUGHT BACKING OUT OF A GROUP AUCTION, it will count automatically as a warning against you, and three warnings is one (of many) way(s) to result in being banned. Do not forget that based on the severity of your actions you can also be banned immediately, although this is usually behavior-related, it is not out of the question. When dealing with money you cannot be immature or childish, so do not participate if you cannot be an adult.


Group auctions/group buys are fine and there is no limit on how many you are allowed to do, however we want to suggest thinking over simply purchasing auctions for yourself occasionally, and not to rely too heavily on the group buy system, especially for a lot of items that is less than 20$.

We've seen a lot of folks regret doing a group auction and try to make profit off the items they bought with others, but unfortunately a group auction is not designed for profit, and you will get called on your actions. But if you front the money yourself, then the lot is yours to sell at any price you wish once it has arrived! Also keep that in mind.

On a final note, we want to recommend against selfishness in group auctions. If you are not willing to put in the large amount of work that goes along with running a group auction, then do not easily expect someone else to do the job for you, on top of letting you have whatever rare and highly sought after item you want in the lot. This is not an uncommon problem here, and naturally you are allowed to ask, but please do not be surprised if the outcome is not as you desired.

so guys, have fun, stay responsible, and again, comment and complain without fear, we are here to listen to your ideas (or even possibly engage in some mature debate ;D).

Collection post <3

Hello friends! ^-^.

I have been missing since Friday, because I went to the "Salón Manga of Barcelona", which is the best event of manga in Spain *-*U.
I did not expect to see some Pokémon merchandising, as they usually just only have figures of TOMY(First and second generation) ... but this year I am pleasantly surprised, and I saw a lot more Pokémon merchandising!(Also new).

So I leave with you pictures of what I buy there, and in addition to two things I received today :3.

A couple random things

First of all, if you've bought anything from me in the past week or so (or participated in the group auction), everything was sent out on Friday. I've you've bought anything since then, it should be sent out this Friday, barring anything totally unexpected ^^;

Edit: While I'm thinking about it, anyone have an Ampharos Tomy for sale?

Movie 10 Settei Auction!

Hey all! I just received a lot of 60 movie 10 settei, 55 sheets are for auction. Auction will end this Friday at 9pm California time.


Q: What are settei?

A: Settei are the closest we will get to new cels. Because Pokemon is now animated digitally, cels don't exist. Instead, the animation studios use photocopies of artwork within the office as references for animating. I bought a lot of 60 settei on Yahoo!Japan auctions to get just five - the rest are available for auction here!
Settei are very special rare collector pieces that are hard to come by, especially because they were for internal use only and not available to the public. These ones are in perfect condition, and each will be mailed with cardboard to maintain shape. The size of the paper is standard Japanese 8"x12". Own a piece of Pokemon animation history!

Tis the Season.

Just a head's up for the X-mas season just around the corner,went to the mall today and FYE and Hot Topic have a whole bunch of new Pokemon items themed for X-mas.

Including X-mas Ornaments, X-mas paper,Jewlery,calenders,stationary and new apparal.

The Pikachu X-Mas stocking from FYE is extremely adorable..

I would have taken a pic of some of these things only after they were bought by my boyfriend they were taken away and I couldnt see them again till X-mas.

Question D:

Uhh I dont know if im allowed to do this and if im not I'll delete this but does anyone know where Atateatarin has been
I've tried contacting her and stuff and I haven't heard back from her in a while and i'm a little concerned because I made a pretty pricey order from one of her sales post and I have yet to here back :c

Sorry again Im just a little concerned D:

EDIT: okay everythings good

hi guys! all the block sets will be out by saturday, when i plan to go and get'em! so, please do send payment if you reserved one :D the reservation list.

the total is 10.50 per block + 3.75 (no matter how many blocks you ordered). as we didn't quite make enough to completely afford the set, i'd love to ask those who called sought-after blocks to add a few more dollars (as possible) on to help out with the costs if possible (i will do it as well towards the two sought after blocks i reserved).

paypal to heerosferret★!

also, i reopened christmas plushie pre-orders for all interested, they are only open until tomorrow!

PS: go vote, americans! :)
