Wants.

So I'm currently in search of pokemon TCGs. I have a deck but I'm missing a few cards. And I'm hoping I can buy cards from the community  for a good price since I think troll n toad is a bit too pricey for me.

Thundurus 2x 1x (FA but if not I am willing to buy the normal ones too)
Catchers 2x (maybe 3)
Mewtwo ex 2x (lol a girl can dream right?) 
Pokemon Collectors 2x

and thats about it. I'm hoping to buy most from a single seller or two just to save on shipping and fees. 

Amigurumi Auction!

I've been making amigurumi to sell at ACen like crazy lately, but I took a break to try out a few things. I've always wanted to make a Woobat, but I don't have the right shade of blue for it... so I made it anyways in a darker blue! Then I wanted to try Meowth, but I'm not sure if I like how he turned out. Then I wanted to try and make a newer Pokemon, something I wouldn't normally make. So I did Keldeo! TL;DR: I'm auctioning these guys off since these are one-of-a-kind, and I'm not sure if I'll ever make them again!

Woobat:STARTS @ $15 - Meowth:STARTS @ $12 - Keldeo:STARTS @ $15

Sales permission granted by [info]entirelycliched on 10/29/11

THIS AUCTION ENDS @ 8:00 PM CST ON FRIDAY, APRIL 20th 2012

PLUSH RESTORATION GUIDE! + It's Official: He's Official

Welcome to Gin's Plush Restoration Guide!
When you want to fluff up loved fur, remove stains, fix tears and replace missing parts.


I've wanted to make this for a very long time! I will link to the post later if I find it, but I haven't written about plush restoration in quite a while, since my most famous project, restoring Dr. Raikou. He is gigantic and took many, many repetitive sessions over the course of a year to fully restore. This guide will focus on normal-sized plush.

So I present my three subjects, from left to right: Potatochu, Specialchu and Yellowchu! I realized I should do this tutorial after I had already begun a bit, so the "before" pics are already a bit wet but... let's continue anyway.

As Specialchu promised, I redid my photos of these fellows. They are what the community voted to call "Mirage Plush", rare, usually-European novelty dolls from crane machines and festivals.

When I began my Germanchu collection (most of them have come from Germany), I suspected these dolls were made by Play-by-Play in 2000-ish. This original suspicion was left on my site to speculate, but after lack of evidence and all tush tags being chopped off, I gave up. German PKMNcollectors had told me they saw these Germanchus sold at festivals celebrating Pokemon Yellow's release. Good enough for me to have that much info.

Yellowchu arrived yesterday. I had him for 2 hours before I REALLY looked. And stared. And gaped. And then pumped my fist into the air with VICTORY.

HIS TUSH TAG HAS NOT BEEN CHOPPED OFF.

And he is an official Play by Play plush made in 2000.

Come see what this tag says (it's quite interesting), how I know it's not a cheapo tag tossed on by bootleggers, and for more pics of all the Raichus together.

THANK YOU for checking out my tutorial and reading into the mysteries of these Raichus. Hope you enjoyed, my comrades! My Germanchus thank you as well! :D

a interesting find and question

Today I was doing some spring cleaning and I rediscovered something from my childhood a pokemon play-doh set and it still works and is not clogged up with play-doh like I thought it would be 

yes the box is really beat up

now here is my question it came with the molds to make jigglypuff, pikachu, squirtle, clefairy, and psyduck and I would like to make a lasting clay figure that you don't have to put in a kiln but just leave it out to harden with the molds do you know what type of clay I should use I heard Crayola make a clay that might work but I don't know if it would harden well so can you tell me what you recommend also how much does it cost and finally do you think I should do commissions on these and would it be called commissions because these would be half official figures? 

anyone going to the dark explorers pre-release?

So I just found out on PokeBeach that the pre-release for Dark Explorers will be happening next weekend (and the weekend after that). Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'd be able to make it to an event, even with motivation to go to one:



That's right, the pre-release card for it will be a REAL, starred promo! I assue that it's original art that won't be in the set either. Anyways, would there be anyone going to the pre-release event that would be able to pick one up for me? I'm hoping not to spend too much on it either, assuming they give these out for free just for being there? I'm not too sure^^

Questions and Wants about some TFG

So I was reading about the Pokemon Trading Figure Game series, which got cancelled very shortly after its release. While it's understandable that most of the figures would be rare-ish due to this, eBay has a bunch of Lugia, Salamence, Treeko, and other such figures, there seems to be a complete lack of others - for me, the lack of the Latios and Latias from Groundbreakers anywhere at all. Even though Groundbreakers was a discontinued set, there have been lots of the test run figures floating around here among other sites. Because of this, I have to ask why the Latios and Latias from Groundbreakers, which were publicly released in a starter kit, aren't anywhere to be found?

As you might have guessed, I am also looking to collect these pair of figures, however rare they are. Thanks for reading!

Quick Question

I have found a Pokémon Skateboard for sale on a local sellers page and I am picking it up tomorrow. I am in the UK and wondering if anyone knows if it is official, or anything. The bottom is a little scratched from being ridden, but not so bad. 

I found this link on google for what it appears to be:

http://www.savingsahead.com/P/883/pokemon_8_inch_x_31_inch_hardwood_deck_skateboard_new!!.html

It's the only pic I could find and it doesn't have much info!


This is the actual pic from the seller.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Hello c:
Since I just joined the community, I thought I'd make a little introduction, with my collection, and some wants/grails!
Feel free to call me Barujiina, which is also Mandibuzz, and my second favorite Pokemon (my first being Weavile). I started collecting/playing Pokemon when I got FireRed for my 7th birthday, and have loved it ever since. I've lurked here for some time now, and finally decided to make an account and to hopefully interact with the members and help expand my collection~
