Pokemon Mall Tour, Arcadia CA

Location: Westfield Santa Anita
About 15 miles from Los Angeles
Date: Feb 19th/20th


Update for those planning to attend the Pokemon mall tour. I called the mall and got this information.
Ticket sales for the Pokemon movie start at 9:30-10AM at the pokemon information booth. The Mall tour event does not start until 10AM(which is normal store hours) However, the mall will be open as early as 7AM(just not the stores in the mall)
There will be five different locations throughout the mall for the event, the two gamestops in the mall will be participating.  The specific locations within the mall will not be known until the very last minute, because the people setting up the event will be coming in on Friday to set everything up(The lady I spoke to on the phone said they have to check the plug outlets and all that for setup)
The areas for the event are
Demonstration area
Character distribution booth at both gamestop locations
Activity zone
Retail area
Pokemon information booth

Alrighty, with about a week to go, I thought I'd make a general post for the mall tour. Who's attending, what days, and so on. If anybody has suggestions for specific meeting spots, I'd be happy to try to help organize it and post it up. I'll probably make another post closer to the day of the event(I'd say about Thursday)

Also, anybody planning to cosplay to the event? I'll be chilling in my Bel/Bianca costume. :D

Can't wait to see you guys there.

Requests for Kiosks!

When I went to do the pokedoll kiosk pickups the other day, the guy at the kiosk first of all told me about the upcoming stock change and secondly asked for what kind of merch/what pokedolls I'd like to see come to the kiosk. I mentioned that I was part of an online pokemon community that would love to give such input and he responded that it would be awesome when I suggested making a poll and giving him the results.

And so that is what I plan to do! I'd like to give three different lists:
-a list of pokedolls we know exist and would like to see brought to the kiosk
-a list of pokemon we'd love to see as pokedolls (I'm not sure how high up the chain these suggestions will be passed on, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to add these :P)
-a list of any other Pokemon Center merch besides pokedolls and the stuff they already carry that we'd like to see at the kiosks.

How I'd like to organize this is by having three main comments, one for each list, and then all input as subcomments. If someone has already posted the pokemon you were thinking of, just comment to that subcomment so as to add a tally to that pokemon. I hope that makes sense!

Feel free to add as many pokemon to the lists as you want, I'd like to give him a pretty comprehensive list! :D


Woops, according to synariel in this comment it looks like their boss is pulling the plug on customer wishlists! :( However, she says that they encouraged submitting recommendations to the website and adding their kiosk page on facebook and submitting our recommendations there.

So I guess that's the new plan! While we're still in this wishlist mode, let's submit our wishes! The only place I can really find on the main site is to the customer service e-mail at customerservice@pokemon.com and the page to the Tacoma kiosk is here, so let's see if we can make some waves!

EDIT: And I started a new Topic on the Discussion Board of their facebook here.

joint buy maybe?

being hosted in a group auction here but seems I was too slow, someone else got mew =( good luck to everyone else who will be going in the group buy

so yah, in browsing ebay, as I really SHOULDN'T, I saw this



but I only want mew D8 anyone interested in the others and maybe we could all pitch in and buy the auction? 8D

Jakks Plush Series 14

EDIT: JAKKS FIGURES SERIES 18 RELEASED TOO!!! SCROLL DOWN

I dunno if someone has updated this info already or not...I apologize if it has been ;_;

Series 14 Jakks plush have been released and I am a little confused..

Weren't Celebi, Happiny and Togekiss already released just last series?? I am thinking that the pre-order is wrong like it was for the Jakks figures.  0.o Jakks, Y U confuse me so?

All I know is I want that Buneary ^____________^ so friggin cute!
ok I want the electric squirrel, too

Is anyone looking for the Skymin or Piplup throw ball plush? My Wal Mart has 1 of each. Just lemme know!!! :)

Series 18: Figures
Raikou
Entei
Suicune
Piplup
Infernape
Zorua
Zoroark
Celebi
And repeats again (Cyndaquil, Croagunk, Buneary and Torterra)
Quick Draw!

Possible GB?

I was wondering would anyone be interested in any of these figures?




I would be only claiming Rayquaza.



And since I've never done a GB before, and if people actually want the other figures,
if someone would be willing to help me in any way I'd appreciate it.


It's 4am my time, so I'm going to head to bed now. But I'll be checking back once I wake up/randomly during the night/day (I have a phone with internet by me all night, and I periodically will wake up and check my emails. So if there's any comments I may see them sooner then later. Depending on how well I am sleeping xD;

On the look out for! One Espeon!

Espeon POKEDOLL
and Glaceon pokedolls! (I realise they are rare!)
I have had a reallllly hard time with an eBay seller not accepting my payment it has cleared on my end and for some reason they have it set up so they have to accept and it just doesn’t automatically claim it :( so iv asked them and asked them and all they can say is "have not received payment" and will not for the life of them accept it :|
I don’t think their English skills are too good sadly or they are just trying to scam me ....so im desperately sad and probably will never receive me Glaceon!
SO GUYS help me out here and trow some dolls my way!

SO THAT GOT RESLOVED WITH THE HELP OF A LOVELY LASS FROM PAYPAL :D 
so justtt looking for that espeon now i have come across a couple so fingers crossed for that one!
but if you have one let me know :)
I am from Australia so im looking at expensive postage most likely im pretty sure :( looking for about $40/$45 dollars shipped?
so a reasonable price would help me out greatly!
THANKS GUYS!

Gorgeous Clear File Folder

Good Noon, everybody. rocket_chick just posted a personal journal site of a Japanese Pokemon Fan. When I followed her journal, I found this GORGEOUS set of 5 clear file folder, which includes No. 1~493. Immediately I bid one on Y!J and won it. Though it is in B5 size since in Japan this is thought to be the standard paper size, I think it will still be a rare collection since it is a lottery prize in Pokemon Center. I will scan the folder when I get it for sure. THIS IS SUCH A HAPPY DAY!

Also this is a final reminder of my little Auction going on! It Ends tonight 11pm Eastern US time (in about 10 hours)

Memphis Tour, questions, and a couple of pictures

My boyfriend got me a new monitor that was too big for my previous desk so we had to get a new desk. The place where he works has been trying to get rid of an executive desk for 2 years so it was really cheap. It has glass doors on it that are nice for displaying my favorite collection pieces.

Collapse )

Anyone going to be at the Memphis Pokemon Mall Tour tomorrow? I'll be there with my boyfriend and a few friends.

Also, does anyone have a list of where all the Pokemon Center kiosks are? I thought there was only one (in Seattle), but I'm pretty sure I've seen people do pick-ups for other locations.
Do they plan on putting one in each location where they have had/are going to have a mall tour stop?

Pokemon Center Merchandise - A History In Brochures

This really made my day, and I'm certain many of you are going to be absolutely thrilled with this too, so I just had to share. I follow (i.e. stalk) the lovely Asami's blog/journal, and they have made the most fantastic post: scans of Pokemon Center Leaflets!



These date from around 2000 (the second movie) to summer 2003, and detail AMAZING MERCH. I've seen heaps of this stuff floating about, but it's great to finally see it in context! I know people are going to find all sorts of fantastic things to hunt down. I've even managed to find the origin of one of my own pieces - the fortune cookie tin. If only it still had the fortunes in it!  Personal favourite though? This:



DX Torchic pokedoll! I will find you.
So, brace yourselves, and dive in to see what wonders await!
Be warned - very image heavy!

Thanks for reading!

throwing this out there!

Anyone knows where/if I can get this mystery dungeon poster with grovyle and the time gear? It looks pretty awesome.  (Update: I have found this beauty, I love you, community!)

While I am at, anyone knows if the C-gear will work on the DSlite? The Japanese version's didn't and it makes me wonder if I should just buy a 3DS at realease x.x; (apparently I will have to buy one, simply sooner than I thought I would! Time to save some bits of paychecks :p )

15 pacels in a week! :D FIFTEEN. bwahah

HI ALL OMG. I just had the greatest week of my life! POKEMON-WISE. Holy crap man. I got delivered 15 parcels in the last week.. FIFTEEN. (15!) I got a package on my doorstep every single day and in the mail LOLOLOL. It's like Christmas all over again! My mailman is SUPER nice so THANK YOU for having the patience to deliver all my packages and knocking on my door for me to sign for them. <3 And thank YOU everyone for selling things to me either on Ebay or this community or elsewhere!

Also for the first time ever, I decided to change my icon. I initally did not like Corn because of the official art, but when I saw people's interpretation of him....  HES ONE OF MY FAVOURITES. Dento, Poddo, Corn, best NPCs EVER. So I commissioned this picture of Corn and the whole picture cannot be shown because IT JUST CAN'T HAHAHAH. If you look closely maybe...

Collection Update of Epic Proportions :D {and a meme}

WARNING! PRETTY IMAGE HEAVY!

Photobucket
This is my cluttered collection area for now. More pics under the cut! Skarmory is pretty brave hanging out underneath that bamf of a dragon. Registeel is here too. The dragon holds up my zoroark cell phone charm, but oh wait, I don't have a cell phone -_- and my custom jirachi cell phone charm.

Rare Salamence Zukan Auction!

Got an auction here for a pretty rare zukan. The last time I saw one of these on here, I saw it sell for quite a bit. I'm going to run this auction for 1 week, and it will end at 8pm EST on Friday, Feb 18. Obviously, no sniping will be allowed, and please bid to the nearest whole dollar. The starting price on this auction is going to be 60.00, with an available buy it now at 160. The zukan is in great shape, with just a small paint scuff that you can see in the picture. I have a larger picture under the cut.

Last reminder~

I have three tiny poke painting commission slots ending tonight at 11PM EST! That's about 5 hours from this post. :) Click the banner to go!



Also, what happened to pokemon of the week? ;_;
Pokemon- Giratina Pokedoll Pile

(no subject)

Today has been pretty damn sweet you guys.

Let me show you.

But first some recent gets prior to today~
Collapse )

Now story time, today was an adventure:

As you all probably know, when blackfruitbat posted about the Giratina dolls in the kiosk the other day I was all over it. However Alderwood is quite a ways away from my house, very far north. 8C I can't go very often. I went in December close to Christmas and it was a NIGHTMARE. I vowed I would never go again unless they stocked Giras. And stock Giras they finally did.

Drove up there with Hannah today eager to fill a bag full of Gira dolls. Got there around 11. Ran to the kiosk area.

All the Giratina dolls were sold out already. 8C We were discouraged but we would not give up. >:U I bought the other dolls I wanted (plus a Darkrai for Hannah, she's going to make even more plush for me sdkjfhskdjfhsd). We talked to the person there and he mentioned that Northgate did have new stock but he had no idea what it was. We decided to go to Tacoma Mall. Quite the drive, I didn't even know quite how to get there. Went to a computer store and used one of the demo computers to get directions.
Collapse )

We headed off, fully prepared to drive all the way down to Tacoma (a long way) but stopped by Northgate on the way, partly to see what was there, also to pop into TRU and get some Pikachu downloads and check for new Jakks (there were none 8C).

As we get closer to the machine the sillhouetted shapes become clearer. We can make out the top row, Flareon, Jolteon, etc. Nothing new.
Get closer, see Pikachu on the left, Arceus on the right. What is that blob next to Pikachu? Is it? IT IS.

Collection update plus an auction and sales!

 Its been awhile since I last updated! I've been trying to hold myself back since I've got my car payments to make. ^^;

And as usual my sales have been updated with a few more things from my recent package! Please click on the banner to take a look. ^_^


I also have an auction going on for some rare Pokemon wind chimes!

I was on my way home from work tonight & I decided I would stop at the local comic book store since it had been a long day.
I ended up finding this & I thought I'd share it with you all :)
I'm guessing this is a TOMY toy from the DP movie release
I'd never seen it before so I thought it was neat

Super Quick Wants Post

Update on my Sales: All items paid for at this point should be ready to go out on Monday!
Also on the look for some items:

  • Huntail Kid, extreme want! :( That has proven very hard to find so far...
  • ANY Golbat Kid. The worse the condition the better, as it's for a repaint.
  • The PokéCen Jalorda plush. I have no qualms about condition, as my budget can't stretch awfully far at the moment.
  • The CLEAR Ho-Oh Battle Kid

(Photo credit to [info]atateatarin over at her collection site!)
  • The Ho-Oh Suction Cup Figure. You know those items you miss by the skin of your teeth so many times? Woken up late for an auction, a few minutes late to a Sales Post? This is mine. *shakes fist at the heavens*
  • Also uuuhm... Ho-Oh Zukan? I know this is the most ridiculous thing to just throw out as a casual want, and I am fully aware of it's rarity, but you never know. I know some people here own one, if you were thinking of parting with it or anything... pop me a PM.
  • Any Ho-Ohs you might have lurking, let me know. I'm coming very close to a full collection, but there's still some silly bits and pieces I've neglected picking up until now.

GA updates! payments please! and a group buy!

 hey guys, just a quick post at the moment; some updates

Thanks so much! <3

The spreadsheet is here: spreadsheets.google.com/ccc

I am now also taking money offers on him, as it seems there wasn't any interest in trades really (apart fromrainyan , cant wait to see what flats you have!) and I could really do with the money at the moment. Just post offers below!
