I was hoping to do this the day I got accepted into the community (so I could add some photos) but.. now is better than never. XD
So, hiya all~ -My name is Stephanie but if it's easier at all, call me by my username; Platina. That's what I usually go by on the internet. c: I'm 18 and live in Ontario, Canada and I have been a huuuuge Pokemon fan since it started, back when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My first game was Pokemon Red and my first starter was Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard because I thought I needed to pick him because he was on the cover! XD;
Ever since I first learned about it, I've loved Pokemon and everyone who's ever met me knows "Stephanie is the Pokemon Tard/Fan/Authority". I've always, always bought Pokemon merchandise, throughout all it's generations so i have a very large collection with some items being so old they're totally from my childhood and when Pokemon has it's big hype over here.
I've been kind of creepin' this community since back in 2009 and would visit and look at everyone's collection. It made me want to get a little more serious about collecting Pokemon so I tried to pick a certain one to start collecting, bit it's too tough for me to choose. XD So I kind of decided to collect mostly my favorites and ones I've used in teams in my more recent Pokemon games; SoulSilver and Black versions. My Pokemon I used in those teams(and also ones I've been working to collect) were ones like: Typhlosion, Crobat, Umbreon, Persian, Dewgong, Raikou, Wartortle, Leafeon and Exploud in SoulSilver, and Samurott, Scolipede, Lilligant, Mienshao, Hydreigon, Heatmor, Reshiram and Emolga in Black. My main focus recently has been Samurott though, because I simply adore mine.~ She's named Fuu~ So if I ever talk about the Samurott line or my collection of them, I usually refer to them as Fuu.
Ah, I've 'yammered' a lot, haha. Anyway! -I was eager to become a part of this community and talk and share collections with people as well as the buying/selling/trading parts of it.
So, I do have some collection photos to share, though currently my family is in the middle of a very complicated moving situation, so I do not have all my stuff here. But I managed to get pictures of all my Pokemon plush and about 1/3rd of my figures. the other 3rd, my manga,movies,tins,and weirder things are all uhh.. MIA at the moment. haha.
After my collection pictures I also have a question regarding two V-trainer figures and a trainer chip-thing. One of the figures in question is a V-trainer Umbreon figure WITH a chip in it.
I have noticed that this is a supposedly rare item, so I just want to know more about it.( Collapse )
