I hope nobody else posted one first xD

Since I've been using the service for a while, and it seems to be relatively new to this community, I figured From Japan deserves a little tutorial~!

First: Why?
The commission.

Simply put, this is the cheapest Japanese deputy service currently known!

They (will, as of Monday) charge a flat commission of 200 yen per item.
Compared to, say, Noppin, with a minimum commission of 500 yen which continues to grow as items get more expensive, 200 yen is both the minimum and maximum per listing that FromJapan will charge.

When purchasing from a store, this commission will only apply to the first 4 items-- This means no matter how many things you buy, and no matter how expensive, the commission won't be above 800 yen per shipment!
It's currently not known how this will stack with same-seller listings on YJ, though.
Hopefully someone will test this out for us once the commission begins.

In addition to this commission, there's still the 5% service fee they've always had.
As well as a 186 yen bank fee.
However, it's still quite clear that they remain the cheapest even with these.

I will compare FromJapan and Noppin for a few auction end prices:

10 yen
Noppin: 10 + 500 + 300 + 3.5% = 838 yen
FromJapan: 10 + 200 + 186 + 5% = 415 yen
500 yen
Noppin: 500 + 500 + 300 + 3.5% = 1,345 yen
FromJapan: 500 + 200 + 186 + 5% = 930 yen
5,000 yen
Noppin: 5,000 + 625 + 300 + 3.5% = 6,132 yen
FromJapan: 5,000 + 200 + 186 + 5% = 5,655 yen
40,000 yen
Noppin: 40,000 + 5,000 + 300 + 3.5% = 46,885 yen
FromJapan: 40,000 + 200 + 186 + 5% = 42,405 yen

Does this sound like a good enough reason?
If you're interested, please feel free to read what I've put together~!

Everything's under the cut~Collapse )

Anyway, thanks for reading, if you have~ I hope this wasn't too ramble-y, or missing too many important points. Or too much text outside the cut?
I'll gladly answer more questions about them if you feel something's missing!

When the new commission rate's fully rolled out, I'll see if I can expand on that information a bit more, too.
... ;w;' I don't know what tags this needs, so sorry that I haven't given it any.
I hope it's not too off-topic?

UPDATE: This page needs a lot of edits.
Shortly after posting, they've changed things such as grouping YJ payments together, only allowing a 24-hour window for YJ payments, and finally capping the YJ commission at 800 yen per seller as well.

I'll try to add these in with better detail when I have time.

My favourite thing about Autumn is the leaves, I absolutely love the colours. So I wanted to do something with leaves! First I collected some really spikey yellow ones, and thought of Jolteon. But I don't own an official Jolteon, so it wouldn't have been in the spirit of the comm so much.

Then I found some beautiful red ones. They made me think - I could have some fun with Charizard!
Here is my entry photo - Charizard turning the leaves from fresh and green, to Autumnal reds with his fiery breath:


There was a bit of Photoshop involved, but only because I put a piece of paper to hide a hole in the wall behind Charizard. Proof that I genuinely stuck paper and leaves to a wall to make this silly picture:


By the way, there are now threads for all the items in The Grrrand Grrrowly GA - coins, bottlecaps, cards and more.
I am very sorry for not finishing them yesterday - my home router died - I couldn't make 100+ threads on my tiny phone.
25 November 2012 @ 03:20 am

This has finally arrived! It has been sorted and already packed. 

First of all though, I would like to apologise how long this GA has taken, I am genuinely so embarrassed by that!
I had some problems with my middle-man then then there were some people who didn't see the payment post and/or non payers.

Too keep my explanations short I will chuck them under a cut!

BrrrrraaaaaappppCollapse )

All the parcels ready to be shipped with my MPCs I won, hanging out!

Anyway! If you want to just send shipping, all the details are here!


Please send payments too -

Please remember to include your username and leave me a comment here when you have paid so I can mark you off!

Also, a quick shout out too; crasherwakedanielsard2silverhawk33trimblecat
The spreadsheet didn't say which country you are in, so by default, your shipping is too the USA. If you live in a different country, PLEASE let me know so I can edit the shipping cost. If you ARE in the USA then this is the correct postage for you.  

Again, thank you to all of you. I appreciate you all so much and I hope this doesn't put anyone off any future GAs I may do
25 November 2012 @ 06:52 am
Just a quick reminder before I go to sleep to say that my auctions are ending in about fourteen hours from now! None of the rare shopper clearfiles have been bid on, or the singing keychains and everything is still pretty low, including a Next Destinies TCG folder with Eeveelution artwork, some Eeveelution and other Pokemon 2000 Collector Pins and other items. No bids on the Applause Eevee plushie either! All the pins, clearfiles,the bandana etc. qualify for cheaper shipping too ^_^ Click below or here to go there! 

Again, everything can be combined with my sales, but may increase shipping if the items you are adding exceed a 2cm thickness! D;

I want to get all packages currently pending out on Monday, but I'll be making an extra post office trip towards the end of the week as well for those that don't pay for their auction winnings before I leave. <3

I'm too tired to type out my collection update tonight/this morning (it's THAT late). So here's a preview that I should hopefully finish tomorrow =) There's even some pokemon that aren't eevees O_O.Omg.

25 November 2012 @ 11:11 am

Hello there! Today I bring you some custom charm slots!

All pkmncollectors rules apply!

-I ship from CANADA! Shipping is $5 for a charm to USA. No extra shipping for more than one charm. Canada post automatically puts the charm as a small packet USA because it's too thick for an envelope. D:

-If you are not in Canada or USA let me know, and I can get your a shipping estimate. <3 It will most likely be the same, but to be safe. :)

-No trades at the moment sorry.

Click me for cute charms! <333Collapse )

Sales plug: http://pkmncollectors.livejournal.com/13190871.html

You can combine anything from my sales post with a charm for the same shipping. :3 $5 for a charm and stuff from sales post kinda thing, if that makes sense. :) Canada post makes it a small packet, as I said, so you can fit a lot in a small packet and keep it at the same price pretty much.

Thank you for looking! <333

Hi guys :) An old member risen from the dead to offer you some nice items. I thought I should exclusively offer some of the rare stuff I have in my stored away collection to the community before I toss them onto ebay. Not sure how much most of these items are worth, so auction time! But I do have a few sales for you. 

I am offering up my Dratini Bell Plush, Onemuri Flaaffy, Cynthia Trading Card League Poster, Jolteon Pokedoll, 151 Badges, and My Misty/Cerulean Badge collection, and more.

Hello everyone! Long time, no see!! Hope your all doing well over the holidays!

Anyways, just a quick want! I'm looking to buy a Suicune plush for a friend's daughter for Christmas!! She's always coming over to my apartment and asks if she can have mine. I'm kinda greedy so.... I will just buy her one! I'm looking for under $20 shipped, if possible. And I'm not picky, as long as it's clean with tags, I don't care which one it is. Thanks everyone and happy holidays!
25 November 2012 @ 05:05 pm
So I decided to make lazy little pictureless wants post because I have some money now (and my birthday is in next month, with x-mas!)

So I am looking for Scraggy, Chimchar and Croagunk line items! Mostly looking for flats items, but if cheap, also plushies! (ahh those coins, cards and stickers!) Also I would love to have zukans of Chimchar, Croagunk and Turtwig line! As well my little sister would love to have Aron, Totodile and Turtwig line items as well, figures and plushies (and if you have some of my wants as well flats of them too!) And something for my friendphewmonster  for x-mas would be great! She likes Oshawott line, Cyndaquil line and Raichu (flats please!)

Hi community.
Just a fun Meme-like-post today:
Do you guys have a desk or work area customized with a bunch of Pokemon Merchandise.
I doooo:

Yea, pretty messy ._.
I mostly have it covered with lots of random figures and plushies that I've bought randomly because they've caught my eye.

Hope collectors in the US had a wonderful holiday.  I am waiting for things to wind down so I can be done with school.

I decided to clear things out a bit.  Not much, but you might see something you like.

SalesCollapse )

Small update for the Surrounded by Kids GA - The seller shipped out the lot last week, so I am expecting to get it in either tomorrow or Tuesday.  I will be posting a thread for Payment #2, but I'll need a day or two to sort thru and organize everything and calculate shipping totals since it's such a big lot.  Just keep an eye out.  Don't worry about missing it, because Orbit will be PMing people who take too long. ; P

UPDATE: More Zukan have been added including Dustox, Masquerain, and Sunskirt Zukan pieces and a Gallade Zukan!

All orders get free delivery confirmation within the US!


Lots of good stuff!Collapse )

This is also a reminder for my DIAMOND/PEARL 11 ZUKAN GA! We have about one more day to bid. Lots of Zukan sets are still very cheap (including Hippowdon still at $2), so do get your final bids in! If we raise a little more we can BIN the lot.

Hello Pokemon peeps, I'm back from posting a .gif website yesturday.

So I'm working on my Weebly, which is mostly done besides my Pikachu collection page. And I'm so excited about it I couldn't wait to post it so here it is!



And also, anything on here is negontionable for trades off the want list on there. (All but Natu of course) :)
So if you see a plush you like or any figures (I'll actually sell figures since I'm not into figures all that much) just let me know!
Thanks guys!
I dropped by the Centre today to get some goods, and I also picked up some stuff to share with you guys!
Look below for Eeveelutions and other adorable items.

- I ship from Saitama, Japan to anywhere in the world.
- Prices DO NOT include P&P
- I will consider trades for raichu/manectric items
- If you enquire about an item and do not respond to my reply within 2-3days, I will assume you're not interested and move on to the next person.
- I AM A SLOW SHIPPER! Sorry, but I work full time, so it's difficult for me to get shipments organised and out quickly. However, I'm going to Ireland for Christmas, so I can guarantee you I will have shipped your item by December 12th. 
- No holds at the moment, sorry.
- Sales permission obtained from Denkimouse in August 2011.

I say Eevee edition because I'm doing this instead of Dark_tyranitar (but he's still doing the work lol)  and because it also involves the new eeveelution mini pokedolls. So if you find yourself short on space for your new mini pokedolls, come check it out. :)


We can do it!Collapse )

Hey there guys. :'D

I posted like twice and then... I got a whole bunch of gets in the mail over the last weeks! I wanted to make a SUPER HUGE post with ALL THE THINGS, but then I realized I had a thousand pictures and buh. And then I realized... I don't HAVE to post about everything in a single post. :'D GENIUS.

I got a whole bunch of items in the mail over the last weeks, and I took pictures every time! I'm excited to show everything to you guys, especially after I've put up all my merch in my newly-organized room! I moved furniture around and if I so desire, I could get some shelves and put them up for some extra Poke-merch displaying space. ;u; Oh my Gawd I have no idea how to display my Pokemon. ;__; I want to display them so bad, but I dunno how exactly, lol. D': First World Poke Problems.

Anyway that said. x'D I come asking for a few wants~ Particularly, I'd like some Victini items right now: charms, keychains, bottlecaps, figurines, etc! I'm surprisingly not looking for any plushies of it right now, except for the little miniature Pokedoll keychain (they did make one, right? I remember seeing one). So yes, anyone have anything? c: Just link me in the comments and I'll tell you if I'm interested (depending on prices/item in question/etc)!

Also, I don't really want to spam everyone's posts again... but to those I've bought from, would you guys mind leaving me some feedback, if you haven't? :'3c Is it allowed for me to ask that publicly? I just don't wanna spam everyone, lol. x'D Let me know if I can't ask just a general request and I'll take this out right away. o n o

Thanks a lot guys. :'D I hope I can get a collection update soon and show you all my recent gets since joining!

Can anyone tell me if these are real/what they are? There's a buyer here locally that has 48 different kinds of figures for only $10.

Sorry about the bad picture quality, he's taking them with his phone.

Thanks in advance!

Just a quick ebay question:

I am looking around for a Pokecen Espeon plush, and I have found several on ebay going for a low bidding price, with several bids.  They are suspect, though, because all of them are from Hong Kong, use the same photo, and, well, their prices are so low. 

An example is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-EEVEE-Collection-ESPEON-Pokemon-Cute-Rare-Soft-Plush-Toy-Doll-PC1833-/360520910192?pt=TV_Movie_Character_Toys_US&hash=item53f0b88570

Do you guys think there are booties in our midst already?  Factory rejects?  I am tempted to bid, but I only want legitimate merchandise.  I'd love to hear what pkmncollectors thinks.  Thank yooooou. :D

Found some nifty lots on YJ! I was so excited to get the Lugia >< The rest of these are for sale! All are brand new, come with original packaging/leaflet, and are super gorgeous! I especially love laser-eyes Venonant and grumpy Squirtle!

The bracelets, despite being NIP do not light up very well, at all. Palkia lit up fine the first time but he is quickly diminishing D:

Hi there everyone, thought it was about time for a new sales reminder! I've added loads of new stuff to my shop so be sure to check it out :D (Prices generally are pretty  low but I might be willing to go a little lower in some cases, but it's unlikely XD) 

(click the picture to be transported :D)

Alsooo I have a new pretty desperate want D:

Bulbasaur Pokemon Time Plush Keychain! He makes me feel sooo nostalgic and it's soo cute and ihfoihscbh... Probably no point in going on about that xD Looking to spend around 80$ shipped for it, and it should have all its tags(although I don't care if that push sticker is missing or if the paper-tag is a little creased or bent). Although might even be willing to pay even more^^" Soooo if you can be of any help at all considering this want, please let me know!:D

As for a smaller want... I'd like a Pichu plush keychain, a specific one :O The one from the Baby Pokemon promotion in Pokemon Centers 4 years ago. If anyone of you has one of those for sale please also let me know! Thanks.^^

Hi everyone! I'm finally posting a collection update after... probably over a year. D:

Quick reintroduction: I primarily collect mushrooms. Why? They're fascinating. I went a little more into detail on the "why" aspect at my collection site (Fairy Ring), but it has not yet been updated with the images and descriptions I posted in this entry. That will happen by next weekend the latest.

I also have a side collection of Meloetta items. It's a little odd for me to say I collect Meloetta on the side when her items outnumber the amount of Para and Parasect stuff I have, but it is what it is, I suppose. I'm always on the lookout for new stuff, though! :)

Lastly, my miscellaneous collections are as follows: Charms, where the brunt of my I'm-interested-in-this-pokemon-but-not-enough-to-start-a-collection items lie, Kids, which I collect randomly (much like charms), and finally, season- or promotion-specific Pikachu plush.  The remaining plush in my overall collection are just random guys I really happened to like and didn't have the heart to sell, even though they don't really fit in any of my main lines.

Anyway, without further ado-

(Warning: Image and text heavy!)

Is that an item off in the distance...?Collapse )
And onto the side collections...

Meloettas, Pikas, others~Collapse )
Thank you! :D

One last thing! I have a few new items up for sale at my sales journal. Check it out if you have a moment. ^_^ Thanks again!

Hi there. :)

Just doing some online christmas shopping and want to get a Reshiram figure or plush for my little brother. I'm thinking more towards a large figure though.

I don't know too much about the Reshiram merch around so I thought I should ask you guys for suggestions. Any Reshiram collectors/fans, what do you think are good figures/plushies you can buy of Reshiram for a reasonable price?

If you have any suggestions/ones you are selling let me know please. :D

Thank you! (And sorry about how this is worded, I think I need sleep soon.

Edit: I'm in the UK all I can find here in shops are the Reshiram kid figures, I think he'd like something bigger. It'd be cool if there was a figure that could light up or something and you can move it around as he loves to play with his figures pretending to battle each other.
