just curious, how long have you been collecting and was the a specific store whee you found the best pkmn items?
ive been picking up stuff since i think around '98/'99, and besides the americanized versions available at say toy'r'us and such, there were a few locations that carried actual japanese products..
one place i used to frequent was called "nintendo: world of games" here in artesia, california. they specialized in, you guessed it, video games, but when the pokemon craze hit, i got tp pick up things like official japanese tomy figures (sux they never got the jynx/mr. mime 2-pack,had to order that out of a magazine, would have LOVED to find those in person) , mini figures, (i died when i found jynx, and bougth all they had,lol), cards, keychains, paper-craft, all of it... i used to LOVE going there all the time, i charish those memories of going with my dad, now that he's passed. (strange how you miss the little things, no one else would think were special). i remember i was heartbroken when it closed, but thats how it is with small business'..
they also had stuff at the local sanrio/hello kitty shops..but nothing as good as "nintendo"..
do you have any fond memories of collecting? any specific place that was your poke-haunt for collecting?
icy winter wishes,
Merry Christmas, trainers~
I just wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas before I forgot, and, although I've been saying I wanna buy some stuff here for a while now but never did, I will be coming back around here with some Christmas Cash, and I need a few pointers...
Do any of you know some of the best Sales Posts to buy Tomy MCs from?? I've been trying to find some, and here on the comm is always cheapest, but with no luck... I particularly wanna find some of the newer BW Tomys. :D
Help is much appreciated!
So yeah, me and my Pokemon all wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka and/or Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year~
