Hi everyone, I'm trying to get my siblings something Pokemon-related for Christmas (I'm determined to keep them into it too lol).
My only stipulation is that it needs to be here by next Thursday (20th).  So I can pay for faster shipping but within the US would be better since I can't do but too much. : (  

I don't care about bootlegs since they are between the ages of 6 - 9, but I would prefer higher quality stuff for them as they're liable to break it. xD  I am looking for figures or plush, something they can play with. 

Here are the Pokemon they like:

  • Olivia - Espeon, Mewtwo, and Umbreon
  • Christopher - Black Kyurem and Metang (I think he would like Metagross too but not sure lol)
  • Etienne - White Kyurem and Pikachu

If you have anything I could get for them that would be shipped in time please let me know! 
In addition, I am looking for the Giratina Tomy plush (Origin and Altered) for myself. : P  Here are the rest of my wants.
And I added a few new things to my sales.

Sorry for the boring post.

Attention, comrades! Effective yesterday, denkimouse will be taking a break from moderating duties until the move-in process to her new house is complete in early January. Wish her luck! allinia, godudette, dewott, and I are happy to address any and all issues either through the Report a Problem post, or through private communication if you feel more comfortable with that. If something is so serious that we cannot collectively handle it, rest assured that Gin will be alerted. Thank you ahead of time for your understanding and cooperation!

Our community has certainly been more active lately! We are so lucky to have so many people with whom to share our collecting hobby, but to keep things running smoothly, please check out the community rules and guidelines. It's important for new and tenured members alike to ensure a thorough understanding is developed and maintained, as there have been several rules that have been consistently broken recently:

Excessive mini-modding:

This has seriously been getting out of hand. It's particularly important because it prevents members from feeling ganged up on, personally attacked, and developing negative impressions about the nature of the community. Everyone has enough "real life" stressors as it is without needing to add dozens of un-kind comment notifications in their inbox as well. :( At the same time, no one likes not being afforded the opportunity to correct mistakes, so here's what you do if you notice a post that breaks the rules:

1. Check the actual rule! Recently, there have been a lot of "corrections" made that actually provided incorrect information! This is very bad because even if someone's mistaken paraphrasing of rules is ultimately corrected, members who saw the initial comments might not be present for the follow-ups.

2. Let a moderator know! Reporting the problem to that posts will not get a member in trouble for innocent mistakes, and the Report a Problem enables whichever moderator is online first to handle the issue ASAP.

NOTE: Members also may kindly let others know of rule infractions. If you choose to do this, you must first make sure no one else has already done so. If the original poster (OP) is having trouble editing their post to comply with the rules, you are more than welcome (and encouraged!) to jump in and provide assistance. However, they do not need to be advised of rule infractions more than one time! There is no need to chime in and agree with someone who got to it first. It's also recommended that the rule in question be copied/pasted to the OP to ensure proper wording.

Responding to GA claims:

Don't do this! It can be very stressful for a host who might not be familiar with exact pricing to be told their claim prices aren't high enough. If you have concerns that the fair value isn't being claimed, let a moderator know. Remember, claims don't have to be the exact last selling price(s) of the item. Personal judgement should be used. If a claim leaves you thinking, "well, that's a bit low" it's probably fine. But if your immediate reaction is, "HAHAHAHA, is that some sort of joke?!" then there is likely an issue. Just let us know.

Image sizes:

Any images outside an LJ cut must be no larger than 500 pixels wide and 600 pixels tall. We're trying to avoid breaking out community page/members' friends pages with this one. Pictures under a cut are unrestricted.

GA/GB result announcements:

New posts announcing that a GA/GB was won or lost are unnecessary. Just update your original post and/or reminder post with the results! Participants should check back to determine whether or not to expect invoices.

Fun fact: If you already have sales permission and experience co-hosting GAs/GBs, finding a co-host is completely optional!

Paypal disputes:

If your buyer/GA participant does not receive their item within 35 days of sending the first payment, they will be encouraged to re-establish contact with you to determine if opening a Paypal dispute is necessary. Is it necessary? If you are unable to provide proof of postage or the item doesn't show up soon, then yes! Buyers/GA participants should wait until closer to the 45-day mark (Paypal's time limit) if the seller/GA host(s) are maintaining good communication and making fast progress.

If extenuating circumstances prevent the seller/GA host(s) from mailing things out before that time, they will need to issue out temporary refunds to renew the dispute time limit. Paypal disputes will NOT be delayed past the 45-day mark solely based on promises that the item(s) will be mailed out "soon," nor will they be closed for that reason. There has to be a receipt/customs form provided, or the package has to arrive. Proof of postage must be maintained to avoid being financially responsible for mail that doesn't turn up!

Posting frequency:

Please do not post more than once within a 24-hour time period. Deleting posts does not "renew" your posting ability, as chances are, hundreds of people already saw it on their friends pages. This rule, in addition to keeping the community organized, helps prevent overexposure. You don't want anyone to dread seeing your username pop up in a post! ;)

Sales reminders should not occur more than once every couple of weeks unless there's a significant change in stock (a reminder within the same week is okay if you don't plan on advertising again in the foreseeable future, similar to how GA reminders function) . Wants post should 1) be consolidated, and 2) not be posted more than once a month or so. Give people a chance to get additional stock/find more lots of merchandise/etc.

Thanks, everyone! Please don't hesitate to express any questions, comments, or concerns you may have! For ideas that may change the ~entire course of the community~ as we know it, or even things less creepy and dramatic, check out the Suggestions Post! To make sure you don't miss on-going discussion, consider "tracking" the post by clicking the thumbtack icon in the toolbar directly above the post's title. That way, all comments will go straight to your inbox!

Hey community, I have a few questions & some "letmeshowyoumypokemons"

I've been going through a rough time with my family this year, and I am looking for a change of scenary. I am considering Washington for a number of reasons, people seem to be very nice out there, and I just love the idea of the rainy weather. And then there is always the kiosks, and all the US pokedolls... I know that they added two more recently. Last time I went, I didnt get a chance to visit the machines, but I am going down there again in the next few weeks to look at apartments & universities and I want to hit as many vending machines as I can while I am there. ^_^ 

Is there a post about the Washington Vending Machine Locations?Collapse )

Questions about Distributors of Pokemon StuffCollapse )
"Favorites" ShelfCollapse )

Tepig Collection & Grail GetCollapse )
(WANTED!) I am also still looking to complete my Rainbow Series Pikachu collection (I only have 2 ). So please if you have anything Rainbow Series Pikachu, please throw it at me!
Hi All =) So I'm going to be taking a little hiatus from the comm. I hate to do this to myself (and I guess to you guys too?) but I'm having huge issues with money D= Not that I'm like broke or anything XD But I'm moving out of my dorm and back home, and in order to keep my sanity here, I need to save up for a car, and the only way I can do it is by quitting my pokemon purchases cold turkey. (urg, I'm a pescetarian). Anyway, here's one final collection update, A video of my Talking Chillarmy, Miko, and two small sales. I will continue to check my messages almost daily, just won't be checking the comm itself. I know I'm involved in the Pokebox stamp GB, so don't worry, I will still be checking my mail. ANYWAY! on to the good stuff! (Except I am totally in one the Pokemon Mate N and Touko Figures!)
Miii~Collapse )
Sales =)Collapse )

I apologise to all of you for how long this GA has taken. There was a problem with the shipping and to make a long story short, the package has been across the USA. ^^; But it's here now and I've got shipping totals calculated and extras pictured. Please take a look!

info and extrasCollapse )

As I now start to sort through my giant lots, I'll be doing periodic sales posts with certain items just to make my life easier than trying to sort through a zillion items to find the one you wanted so I can get you a quote.

There's more than Piplup under here~Collapse )

Hi everyone,
I'm Chantilly from France! I'm 23 years old and a fan of pokemon since red & Blue version. When I was child I had many gashapon but my parents sold all when I grown up, I'm angry about that!
I don't collect pokemon merchandises since long time, juste few years ago. Now I want to collect pokedoll & pokeplush, especially Pokemon that I like (Buneary, Manaphy, groudon, eevee and his evolution, and some others). Also I recently fell in love with "la maison de eievui" collection!
I find your community by chance in google image, and I am impressed by all your collection!
Thank You for read my introduction.

-Specifically at 5 PM Pacific time. Things will be shipped out on the 21st (I'm going out of town for the weekend) so you NEED to be able to pay me in about 16 hours from closing time if you want them for Christmas.
-Which means that this auction is Paypal only

-Bid by increments of a dollar, except on the ornaments, which have an increment of 50 cents.

Sales permission granted by allinia on 8/8/2012

My feedback - Click :3

- All pkmncollectors rules apply.
-I ship from British Columbia, Canada. International orders are welcome!
-I live in a non-smoking house. We do have one cat, but he is kept away from the items. Cat hairs do travel, though. D: I will clean them as best as possible for you.
-Haggling is welcome! If asking for quote, item will only be held for 12 hours. If I don't hear from you it will be passed on to the next person. Holds can be for up to 24 hours.
-Once committed to a purchase no backing out. If you do, I will leave negative feedback.
-Paypal only.
-When asking for quotes I also factor in cost of materials+PP fee. I will try and re-use any packing materials I already have. If you want new materials let me know, if not I can save you a couple bucks. :)
-Payments to element_dragon_magic@hotmail.com all in USD please. :)

Some shipping info:

Base price to USA for small packet ground is $7. I can fit a lot of things in a small packet. No, I cannot do anything about the shipping price.
IF you purchase over $50 of stuff, I will give you free airmail shipping.

Base price for International is $9 for airmail. No, I cannot do anything about the shipping price. I'm sorry. But I can't.

Below you will find tons of plush and neato items, as well as a few interesting items up for auction such as a Halloween Espeon, and a 2009 Eevee Tail charm. <3 Please come have a look!

Hello everyone! This is just so ya'll who purchased from my Super Duper Keychain Auctions know what's going on. 
As of now, I have shipped out all the american parcels who paid as of saturday, so roughly half the people. 

However: people who have not paid yet and international are going to have to wait. After speaking to my mom (a post master) and two employees at seperate POs I have made the decision to wait till after christmas to ship out. I'm sorry if this causes any inconvenience. :( 

Why? International packages are much more prone to getting lost than american packages (especially small packages, which all of these are). I would rather have your item arrive after christmas than never.

Thank you all for understanding! <3 

PS those of you who haven't responded to me on the auctions need to do so. >:( Imma start pm'ing in a few days. 

Happy Holidays, everyone! ;3
