I'm new

Hi, I'm new.

I've been a Pokemon fan since I first got Pokemon Blue for Gameboy for Christmas. Thought I would grow out of it, but apparently not.
My favorite Pokemon are Flygon and Wooper, so they are mainly what I collect (I am proud of my Flygon plush) but I am also interested in Rayquaza and Giratina and pretty much every bug Pokemon ever. (I am an amateur entomologist IRL know...)
My fiancee (storms-in-orbit) is a Pokemon fan too, she collects Metagross and Kyogre things mainly but also loves the ghosties (she is proud of her Giratina Pokedoll...I am half stealing it).

Here is part of our collection (our favorites):

Modpost Reminders!

You have all been cordially invited to attend another exciting monthly modpost reminder!

     Regardless if you are a new or regular member of this community, please take the time to read this modpost thoroughly and review all of our community rules using the links above! This modpost is not directed at anyone specifically; it highlights rules that have been frequently broken, partly due to the new I ♥ Eevee campaign. If you have any questions, please express your opinions in the comments and the moderators will reply to your concerns quickly!

  Pick-Up Requests 

     Please remember that posts asking for someone to pick up merchandise for you are not allowed. Members who are in Japan, NYC, or elsewhere are not there for your convenience. If they have permission to take pick-up requests they will post about it! Do not beg for help.

     Because a lot of these recent pick-up requests are related to the new Eeveelution campaign, it is also in good taste to remind everyone that these items will be readily available for months after the release. If you have not been able to reserve any of these items ahead of time do not panic!!!! These items will be all over the community; expect many group auctions and community sales to occur when they are released.

  Emergency Sales 
     There should be no reason to ever label your sales with any emergency terms. When these terms are used it often makes members uncomfortable and feel guilty if they do not purchase anything. Although sometimes you may need to sell items due to real life circumstances, these reasons do not need to be described to an entire community of over four thousand members. Please make a normal sales post with a normal title. If you want to elaborate about your emergency con funds, vet bills, family issues, grail items, etc etc please write about it in your own journal.

  Non-Pokemon Sales 

     We're quite surprised that this rule has been broken so often lately! Did you know that this is the very first rule in our community? (If you didn't, perhaps you do need to reread the community guidelines!) You are not allowed to sell any non-pokemon items on the community, even if the sales are hosted in your own journal. You are allowed to include a link in your sales post about your non-pokemon sales but they must be included in an entirely separate post. Remember, if you do not want to separate your sales into two posts then you don't have to advertise your sales here! We are a Pokemon collecting community so please remember to keep non-pokemon items elsewhere. 

  Closing Comments 

     Thank you for your undivided attention in this modpost. Please comment if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns. All of the moderator staff members are happy to assist you in any way possible. We work hard to make sure that this remains a fun and safe community for everyone!

     Also, be sure to stay tuned for the unveiling of our new "contact us" section on the sidebar... coming soon to a community near you!

I am also looking for ANY flats of Groudon. Pan/regular stickers, tcg, and whathaveyou.
And Pokedoll merch of Groudon. I have the actual Pokedoll, I just want stuff with his Pokedoll art on it. xD

Darkrai Ex Sale

Hello again!
The other day I pulled a Dark Explorers Darkrai ex card; he's minty fresh, taken straight from packet and placed in a plastic sleeve and toploader. Make an offer! Lowest price I've seen (for non-promo) is $30, so I'm looking for something around that price. Thanks!

My First Wants Post! And a Question


Edit: Thanks Everyone. I've managed to find all 6 of the figures in this post :)

I've been here for a little while now, so I thought I'd go ahead and make a wants post.
I'm looking for these particular Tomy 2" Figures. They're the only ones I need to complete my Johto collection:


Any official Tomy figure of these would be fine, in or out of packaging, considering they are in good condition, but I am partial to the ones sold in the Hasbro packaging way back when, especialy if you still have the cardboard disks they came with.

I've never seen these particular figures for sale before, so I have no idea what the going price is, but I think the $5-$10 range seems fair, but I may be wrong about this, so just make an offer for whatever your willing to part with them for. I can pay with Paypal.

If I get offers for more than one of these items within a short period of time, which I seriously doubt, I probably will not be able to purchase them all, so please don't be upset if I decline an offer. I also may wait a little while and see if I can get an offer for the Hasbro distributed ones with disks before I accept one that came in the Monster Collection packaging.

Here is a picture of them. I've had these pictures saved to my computer for ages as references, so I don't remember exactly where they came from. I think they came from an archive of the official Tomy pics I found somewhere, but I'm not sure. I can't find them with Google anymore:

Also a question: I know Tomy figures were released of all the Gen 1 and 2 pokemon, But were all of these also distributed in the Hasbro packaged "battle figure" sets with the cardboard disks? here is an URL to a site with pictures of what I'm talking about:

Update + other things!

Hello there!

First, about our beautiful pan sticker GA (and this includes you as well, usagimakeup), I still did not get a quote from Noppin for shipping yet (I know they are not working during the weekend), might be tomorrow, however, due to an unexpected visit I have to go to, I am going to Berlin in Germany for the entire week and will be back Sunday the 16th in the evening! I will have Internet on my cell phone, through which I can look up Noppin, and if my money is enough, I will pay for the shipping myself and the payments 2 will be due a little later (or maybe combined with payment 3, depending on when the package arrives to me), just to keep you informed! :)

I might be available on the Internet here and there (at dad's work), but do not count on me 100% please!

Second, from my sales, everyone's package has been sent out, except for furaipan, since you have paid me really late and the PO was closed today. However, your package will be sent on Monday the 17th, and you should still get it within the 35 day limit, so no worries! <3

Lastly, I just want to share some wonderful gets I have gotten a while ago from my great friend!

I have always wanted the Pikachu line as plush from some promotion that are together. I think the Canvases are just PERFECT for this! They are tiny, cute, well made and just the perfect size for a collector, which need less space =D <333
(though am I the only one who thinks that both Pichu and Raichu would have cute plushies from the "I <3" promotion?)

That is all folks! Thank you for your attention! :)

Card News Issue #5 - 09/09/2012 - The beginning of school.... LATE~

I am very sorry that this week's issue of Card News is this late. Usually I do it the day after, but I've just been swamped...
Let me see here, just a quick update to those who DID purchase Jakks from my pick ups, I DID get them all shipped out on Tuesday...  I wanted to post on Friday, but some friends wanted to go to a football game, then yesterday I had to catch up with all the things I've been neglecting (card trades/sales, haircut, helping my grandparents) and then today I had training... I've been busy readjusting to school, with all this other commotion going on to really do this news segment. Rest assured I hope I am not late again.

[Opinion on something Pokemon related if you don&apos;t mind :)]
I'm in a little bit of a predicament! Tomorrow I have my public speaking class in the morning!
We had to prepare a "success speech," which involves bringing in an item and relating it to a major success
in your life. This is a university course, I'm 19 (and male, if it's relevant lol). 

Of course I picked my metal Pokemon! It's taken me a long time, I've met a lot of awesome community members through it,
I learned how to make things out of metal because of it, and honestly, it's made me ridiculously happy.
I've shown them to all my close friends and they think they're AMAZING! I've even met a few (awesome) friends at school when I wore my metal Exeggutor/Sharpeedo/Solrock. (I wore them - separately - quite often last semester lol)

I'm sort of nervous tomorrow (The class is fairly large - 60). I've NEVER been embarrassed about liking Pokemon before!
I seriously ALWAYS embrace it as something I love! I keep the Magneton/Magnemite zukans on my car's dashboard
24/7! I'm still feeling a little nervous in my stomach about it though :/

(My speech is first by the way) I'm sorry this isn't related to the Comm!

But to my question(s)!

Do you all keep the fact that you like Pokemon to yourselves or share it with others?
If you do share it with others, are you proud about it? :)
I might just be nervous about having to make the speech!
But just in case I would definitely appreciate your opinions!!

Update: Amazing news everyone!!!
I gave my speech and it went great!!!!
I wasn't even embarrassed a little! AND! You all were right!
I actually made a few new friends afterwards! Thank you everyone!!
