I was browsing on ebay and came accross an item I'd really like for my collection. However the seller marks in big red capitals that the buyer is responsible for import duties. I know normally this is the case, and I've bought expensive items from ebay before. But since it's written there like that it worries me and makes me reluctant to buy the item.

I think the items I've bought from Ebay before were marked as a gift or perhaps below their original value? I must admit I never really checked. I've never ever had to pay import duties before, but I think my dad has once. How does this work? I don't want to be surprised and have $30 added to my total or anything :(

I searched the rules for my country and it says I have to pay 19% on top of the written value + shipping. And I've sent the seller a message to ask if they will mark it as a gift or below value.

Anybody want to share their experience or give me advice? Would be greatly appreciated! :)
Hope this is not off topic, the item I want to purchase is ofcourse pokemonrelated.


Also on the lookout for a Flareon & Vaporen charm! What are they going for these days?
I was hoping to pay around $7 or $8 each but if that's being too optimistic you can put me right on that score!

Okay, I know everyone's going all charm-crazy right now [and with my Wave 3 charms on their way, I can understand why! They are cute... so I'm all aboard the Charm Train - my current list of charm wants are HERE and other wants [plush, etc] are HERE], but I have a question that I'm sure has been asked many times over that's somewhat related to the story of... one of my latest gets!
Cut - Cut - Cut for a Get Story!Collapse )

And my question to you is...
Fellow Pokemon collectors: Have you ever found/bought something [a get, a grail, just something amazing that's obviously Pokemon-centric] anywhere that you walked away from, only to find it waiting for you at a later time? You know, almost as if it was meant for you to buy it? Tell me about it - I'm curious to know if this sort of happening is rare or if it's rather common amongst other collectors!

I can't wait to hear your responses! I'll comment in the morning... but now, time to sleep...! Thanks for reading!

Okay, I know this comm is anti life-drama, but my week has been so unexpectedly weird and busy that I was unable to give this quote on Monday as originally expected! I've been to York to learn about ordination, travelled on the train to collect rare imported fish, and now I'm finally at down to type these totals up.

Paid parcels will ship Monday through Wednesday, and then whatever day payment is received. I'm enlisting the help of my super organised mother to get this done, due to the size of the GA.


Okay, extras! Please check your starting total here: Click for sheet
- Prices do not include the any changes to shipping because some of the changes depend on your original package weight.
- Most parcels under 120g will not change the shipping price for a few small bits.
- Haggling over extras is okay. I am already not charging for packaging, so try and be fair.
- Be reasonable in the amount you claim.
- Participants (paid) only until everyone's had a look. Then the comm can claim bits.

Cut for extras and huge photos!Collapse )

Hey everyone, again. XD

We just need one more claim for this charm set to make this group buy happen - Piplup! He's double sided and is only $10 shipped anywhere in the world! Click the photo to be teleported to the group buy post :D

Everything paid for was shipped out last Wednesday :D And I added a bunch of new stuff to the flats and miscellaneous section including charms!!!

I feel this needs to be asked, since it's starting to bother me in ways you don't even know. (And there isn't a tag for this merch, so this will help there too.)

As you all know, there are figures considered 'bottlecap' figures, and have been seen in various places. Most of ours in the States have been found in Trading Card packages, like the Mewtwo collection or the card tins. However, I bring a question about them.

How many bottlecap figures actually exist, and what Pokemon were made? I'm looking into collecting them, and want to see what Pokemon are available, how many bottlecap figures actually exist, and how much each might go for.  I'm fully aware of these Pokemon being available as bottlecap figures however: the Unova starters and their final evolutions, Entei, Zekrom, Reshiram, Victini and Mewtwo.

Anyone who could help in this aspect will be very helpful to me. This way, I can determine how much I'll be spending on this collection alone. (Because for some of the figures, like the starters and the final evos, I'd rather just buy the figure, not the entire collection/tin that comes with it, even if I like the cards.)

Thanks. c:

Got a mini-update for you all! :D I'd mostly like to introduce MY NEW COLLECTION...

I'm not sure what's up with me this generation... I'm way too used to collecting Pokemon who didn't get much merch, so collecting 2 anime stars and now a movie star is a huge change of pace. XD I did collect a movie star before though, and I've missed trying to get all the numerous goods, so I'm not complaining! Does anyone else plan to collect a Pokemon from the next movie?

Stuff!Collapse )

If you happened to buy something from me from my latest sales post, it was sent Tuesday! I am very sorry for the slight delay!!

Thanks for looking! :D
I keep seeing these stampers on eBay, but they don't look like Tomy quality to me. So I am wondering if they are legit? The ad looks good, but some of the figures don't. I think the paint job on this Scraggy looks pretty bad, so this is the main reason I ask.

Oh and speaking of STAMPS... Super Sparkly Stamp GB needs a few more claims. If none other stamps are claimed I'm going to go ahead and buy up the remaining ones so everyone who is currently participating can still get their stamps!

Small wants!Collapse )

If you read my last post you'll know that I received my plush wrapped in bubble wrap inside a taped up USED paper take out bag from Maggiano's...

Hello you wonderful community!

Today I have just a brief question for you all!

Is there an easy way to list tcg that you have available for sale/trade? Maybe like a website that other users could see that's like a checklist. I seriously have stacks. And stacks. And stacks of doubles/triples/thousands. Going through and picturing them all, keeping theme in set/number order, or just keeping a sales post organized is just a lot of time that I don't have at the moment!! Especially for 5000 cards <didnt really count, just assuming) So yes, any pointers to selling tons of cards and keeping it neat would be wonderful! The reason I ask is because I would rather offer them to the com before I do sets in bulk. I keep overwhelming myself just trying to keep it all sorted! Thanks so much my lovelies! Expect a final collection update soon/new set up to my move while I am still on a hiatus. I hope everyone is doing well!

Hello Everybody,

After some contemplating I have decided to try to GB a set of eeveelutions charms! I know, shoot me, you are probably thinking, oh not another one, but maybe there are some folks out there that just like me decided they DID want more than just 1 or 2 charms and are seeing this as their only option ;) This is the cheapest way possible to get them I think.
EDIT: ONLY EEVEE LEFT, WE NEED ONE MORE CLAIM. Somebody give the little guy a home! :D

Hello all! Sorry for the delay in getting our totals. I covered the cost of shipping from Noppin to myself so that there would only be two payments needed. :) Now it's just shipping from me to you!! it was only $1.05 divided between all of us. :D

Check the Spreadsheet for your totals!!

Please send your final payments to glowingferret@gmail.com! Thanks everyone for participating and helping me get my precious heatmor MPC. :) I love him so much!

So ever since I joined the community, one plush has always been high on my wants list! And it's finally happened!!! My baby is in my hands now!!! And it's all thanks to cyritic <3333 Thankyou so so so much!!! Aaaahhhh I really am truly happy to have the fluffy little guy in my arms! Look at his adorable wittle face!!


I couldn't stop smiling as I was opening up the package! Hehe!!! X3

And seeing as I'm here I thought I'd do a bit of an update on how my collection is coming along!
I can definitely say that ever since I properly started collecting whilst on the community, it has definitely opened my eyes as to who my favourite pokemon are and who I should collect ^^

And without futher ado! My collection!Collapse )

Quick question before I do go though: I was thinking of changing my name as if you say the current one out loud it don't always sound nice.... >< So would you guys mind if I changed it? And does it automaticaly change on the feedback site or would another thread be made? I'm not always great at coming up with usernames so I don't think I'll change it too soon =]

Hey guys, just a reminder of the Virizion Kids GB that I am doing. There are a lot of pokemon that still have little or no claims yet, so do claim them so we can get more zweillouses and mienshaos XD such as Unzefant and Conkeldurr and Pikachu!

Also please note I will not have internet access from the evening of 10th March to 17th March as I will be out in the jungle doing stuff with my military training XD
