Hello everyone! I am relatively new to live journal (interface will take getting used to) and the community, but I am really loving live journal and this community as a whole. I feel that familiar 'pokemon passion' exuding from every picture and comment I see, be it casual or hardcore pokemon collecting, to be really awesome and inspiring. I also wanted to extend my thanks for having the privilege to post this little introduction and also have a few questions to ask afterword regarding merchandise identification for things I definitely want to add to my collection.
My name is Andrew and I am from Texas (no, we do not ride horses to school, but that WOULD be cool...only thing cooler would be a Samurott ^^; ) but people often just call me by my screen name. I have been into pokemon since the red and blue versions days. I still continue to play the games and enjoy playing the newer titles as well.
As for my collecting goes, I am scattered all over the place because I like many, many pokemon! Lucario and (hopefully) Ursaring are probably the ones that I will purchase most merchandise of, but I can't guarantee it because I like too many haha! My collection is very modest right now, but I know that will change soon with my stay here!
Here is a quick picture of my pokemon corner:
Also for my questions I had for you, the community is this:
I am in deep search for a talking lucario toy, I have this picture and apart from that I don't know much about it. Anyone having any information or someone that can direct me to a possible purchase of this item will be greatly appreciated.
And for my final question. It is my understanding that Target was giving away Pokemon Black and White Art portfolios as a promotion. I am wanting this item as well, and I am wondering if anyone wants to set up a possible trade for them? A friend told me they go from 5-12 dollars, but I would prefer to trade for some plush that I no longer want.
Again it is nice to meet everyone, and thanks for taking the time to read this! I ^^
