Hey everyone, i was wondering if (drifloon collectors mainly) or any collector with enough experience with legitimate canvas plushes could help me? My partner found one and it wasnt wallet breaking but it wasnt exactly cheap either, it came from Japan. He is happy with it regardless but we want to know if it is legitimate there are a few things about it that makes me think it's a fake. Such as the code on the back of the tag not completely matching the one on the tush (missing a digit) and it looks more brown in stitching and (legs) then others i have seen. Also they way it's stitched on its bum? just seems odd to me. I feel its fake.  I have added pictures in the cut below. Any help will be really appreciated.

Hello All!

Today I bring you a multi post! :)

Recently I was going through my collection and I massively reduced what plush I was keeping!
Here is what my collection looks like now:

collection
My three main shelves use to be filled as much, if not more, than the second shelf is right now.
Closer pics and what each shelf represents in the cut!
Collection PicsCollapse )

I should really take pics of the plush I have in storage because they too are a part of my collection just either too big or I wouldn't be able to display the properly since I only have the one shelf to put my plush on at the moment. Oh but in the future I will have plenty of display space and my 151 collection won't have to be in hiding!


purple squirrel
Also I should take pics of my figures but my desk that houses their case is too cluttered to take a decent pic so that too will be for a later day! One of my Mewtwo figures has a funny little story behind it. I was searching for other ways pokemon could be listed in ebay for instance if a person didn't know the pokemon's name when creating a listing, so I decided to look up pokemon based on their colors. My first search was, of course, after mewtwo so I searched "purple pokemon". Little did I know I would find the funniest listing title I would ever see! The listing had no picture but the title was Purple Squirrel Pokemon Figure Carls Jr. I looked at it for a moment thinking what could be described as a purple squirrel? Then it hit me, it must me mewtwo! So I asked the seller if he had a pic of the figure itself and sure enough, the purple squirrel was indeed a mewtwo carls jr toy! I snatched it up as soon as i knew for sure it was mewtwo. I giggle every time i look at him now because instead of this super kick-ass pokemon i see the most adorable purple squirrel who looks like he wants some acorns. :D


Now for the Helpful Tip Part of this post!

Do not, I repeat, do not use super glue to permanently put together the pokemon nano blok figures! This will lead to an ashy type residue that takes forever to clean off and even then it leaves a gritty texture behind. If you do wish to have permanent figures of the nano bloks, use a glue meant for plastic models. This is the safest option I have found that wont leave any sort of residue on your figures.

If you have super glued figures and have found this ashy residue on your figures, there isn't need to panic or to throw away your figure. Simply make a hot (not boiling) water bath for your figure in a bowl or cup, add some dish soap to the water and let the figure soak for about 10 minutes. After your figure has soaked, run it under warm/hot water and scrub it with a scrub brush. It is best to dip the scrub brush into the soapy bath you made previously as the soap helps to further clean off your figure. This may need to be done multiple times for best results.

I hope at least one person finds this helpful and doesn't panic they way I did at first!
Residue picsCollapse )



As always with any post there is going to be a sales plug!

I do have some more items up on my journal. The most interesting are the three I have up for offers. They are at their lowest offer price but I will consider trades on those three.

Togepi is @ $30
Lucario is @ $200
Kyogre is @ $150

Decided to collect the rest of the Hoenn starters since I have the Blaziken pokedoll and Hoenn is best >.>
Then I am collecting Zygarde as well but poor guy only has 2 official items out.


Then I will hopefully finish putting up the rest of my for sale items at the beginning of next month, been real busy lately and just haven't had time to sort through and take pictures of everything.

Good morning everyone,

Okay... so maybe that wasn't my last post for a while considering I discovered the 10 pack eeveelution figures yesterday and today I went over my inventory discovering that I am apparently missing two more figures that have not been mentioned in my previous posts.  I removed them when I lost the bids and forgot to add them back to the list.  They are Swablu and Starly, who should be easier to find than the other six on the list.  But, hey, if you have these monsters Swinub, Corsola, Kingdra, Ninjask, Electrike, or Spheal figures for trade or sale as well, please don't hesitate to let me know via comment or private message.  And if you have any of these first/third gen toys, feel free to drop me a message too... they are Nidorino, Gastly, Pinsir and Wailord, who I need to replace out my other figures with.  Like I mentioned in my last post, I am willing to pay well for some of these toys since they are the last ones that I need.  I can always wait for the Electrike and Pinsir since they both may be re-released in a mega pack this year but if you got them like I said let me know...

Thank you for reading and looking forward to your responses !  :D <333

So today the last package I was waiting on came in :D I'm so excited to present to you my sorta' complete (this collection will always be a work in progress, but I got alot of the harder to obtain plush out of the way ;p) Sylveon plush collection! I started collecting roughly around the end of December, so this is sorta quick >o<. Luckily I opened up an etsy recently and it started to take off so all that money has now become "Sylveon" money XD Gotta' support your collecting somehow! Anywho, on to the photo!

This giant box o' awesomeness was sent to be by kassia9 over two weeks ago, and I was SO worried it wouldn't even ever arrive.
The reason for this is because of the mysterious case of "packages processed through Richmond CA". Just check out this Yelp!
http://www.yelp.com/biz/united-states-post-office-richmond-richmond
Needless to say it was very worrisome that the tracking had just STOPPED from the 6th of February until yesterday. :o
I had all but given up completely when I found this heavy bundle of joy in my mailbox. ;___; NO MORE TEARS, ONLY DREAMS NOW.
Here's a little taste, with an image heavy cut ahead! :D

Also, a little hint of a gift from a friend. <3

Hello there guys!!!

Today, I would like to share a SUPER GRAIL GET that I have been searching for since I have started collecting....my favorite Pokemon rays. So here is a small hint:


This is the lot I have bid on and won...can you see what I wanted the most out of this lot?

Come and see what it is!Collapse )

Aaaand that's it for my gets!!! Thank you so much for looking guys! <333
As a last mention, I would like to introduce you to this small community we made thanks to lucklessprince!


We have made this shiny Pokemon community on tumblr, where people can show off their shinies or even trade them!!! I hope that this community will help a lot of people in the future finding shinies they are looking for and share their love for them <333
We are so far really small and we have started a few days ago, but it is growing one by one and hopefully will grow even bigger in the future :)

Been a while since I did a collection update! :D Well, I've got one here today for you, with my brand new MEOWSTIC collection. I've only ever really been a completionist about Vulpix, but I think these kitties may have me convinced, as well. :X

But first off, a couple sales, including a single Vulpix Zukan Piece!

Cut for Vulpix, Flareon, and a lotCollapse )


And now, for kitty cats!


Collection UpdatesCollapse )

I had two Meowstic plush commissioned, and they are on their way to me, so be prepared for some photos of them! (They're way cuter than the official plush, I must say. I am, however, a bit biased!)

Still trying to sell my Pokemon Time planner book (covers Novemer 2013-Febuary 2015 + extra note pages) See details under cut!

THE DEETSCollapse )

THE SALESCollapse )

And lastly, HAS ANYONE HEARD FROM pastellbats??
She purchased a commission from me in July 2013. I finished it pretty quickly but I got it mailed back to me return to sender. I didn't want to remail it without hearing from her in case the address was incorrect. But she hasn't gotten back to me in all this time, and I also can't refund her because she paid with concealed cash. ): I have no idea what to do with this situation..

Hi everyone!

I just made a permanent wants list here: http://meloman1a.livejournal.com/560.html . Please check it out! I'm searching (as usual) for all things Dragonair, so let me know if you have anything for me!

I have a few gets here, although I really need to make a massive gets post ^^

Gets under the cut!Collapse )

As in the title. I lost the auction for the latest one so I thought I'd check the comm and see if anybody happens to have one they're willing to part with. It doesn't need to have its hang tag as long as it's in good condition (no dirt, stains, etc.).

I'm willing to pay around $90 + shipping (I figure if I did win the auction the ends price after fees and whatnot would be around that price).

So if you happen to have one please let me know! Thanks.:)

Hello PKMNCollectors!
I'm somewhat new to lj and this community, but I had been inspired by many collections by my friends and people i've known on the internet.
I've decided to start my own collection! I'm new to pokemon collecting but I'm really interested in creating my own collection.
My current project is to start a Braviary collection as Braviary is my favorite pokemon.

Please let me know if you know anybody selling Braviary merch! Thank you and I'm excited to know what PKMNCollectors have in store for me for the future :)

I've been going nuts preparing for a trip back to Ohio to see my friends and family, and completely forgot that I meant to post a couple of wants here, and also share a bit of news pertaining to a super awesome thing that I have acquired, and I will do so under a cut (hoping I remember how this works)!

Here we go~Collapse )

Hi, guys! My first post to this community was exactly one year from Feb. 16, and I actually took photos on the 15th, but I was at a friend's for the next two days and then I got my dental appliance, so I haven't had time to transfer the photos and make this post. ^^; Anyway, here I am, so go below the cut to see everything.
This post will feature before/after photos also!
re-intro for those of you who don't remember me!Collapse )
yay stuff!Collapse )

Now, my last post saying this was deleted, so most of you probably didn't see it. So: I will no longer be collecting Pokédolls. With collecting 11 Pokémon, among other things, I don't have the money or space for it. As you can see, I've kept my 3 favorites, but I'm not keeping the rest. I can't sell them anytime soon (as in, not in the next few years), but when I do, I'll let you guys know. <3

Hope you enjoyed reading my collection post!

Hello community!

Today I bring you something handmade again, (as if i could do anything else,) but i promise I will bring you some collection updates included new pokedolls and rare cards soon!

Anyway here he is, a prototype for a handsewn shiny Umbreon. He took a lot of time and needless to say, I'm fairly happy with the outcome. He's incredibly fluffy and soft due to the fleece fabric i used.
I had the idea of putting him for auction and of taking pokedoll commissions.

More pics under the cut.

Click for more kawaiiCollapse )

I know it's not toooooo perfect but i think for the first try hand sewing such a small plush and trying hand embroidery it's perfectly fine. Also i'm proud of myself for being able to make him look derp and adorable. He's a little taller than my Jolteon pokedoll, but unfortunately i don't have my umbreon here for better comparison.

Anyway, as I'm also living off the crafts and art i make, I would also like to find a new home for this lil' guy and offer commissions for more fluffy companions.

I've been thinking about letting him go for around 45-50 USD and offer slots for pokedolls for 55 - 70 USD. Haggling a bit is fine. Making offers as well, I'd first like to know how much you'd be willing to give for my works before offering them for a fixed price. So feel free to tell me what you think!

Slots:

1. Available
2. Available
3. Available

(On another note, I still have a bunch of ACEOs up for sale, as well as commissions for those!)

Thanks a lot and have a great day!

I'm Sam, 24 yo female that still loves pokemon after all these years! Currently, I am playing x but I also have a lovely little collection of pokemon toys and plushes. My most recent purchases are a big light up takara Charizard that roars, a little charizard pokedoll and some new 12" plushes, (Nidorino and Feraligatr) which I must take photos of upon there arrival. I think they may be fake, but they are so well made! Here for you today I have 2 MIB Habro combat Scyther figures that I purchased a few months ago...these purchases got me back into pokemon collecting so I thought I would share XD ..I have also just received a big lot of tomy's in the post and there are a few that am unsure of if they are bootlegs or not? I will post the photo's here later on. Anyway nice to meet you all and I hope to make some friends and learn a lot here :)

I was looking through the comm. posts and saw the advice listed by user baconscreation, where they said to "look under searches you wouldn't otherwise think to look" (or something like that). And gave an example as to how she found her Mewtwo Hardee's toy. So, I did the same thing and it led me to one of my wants!

frog-two

He was labeled as "Pokemon Plush 8" 1999 Purple Dragon" ....purple dragon. xD
But he was a decent price! Which was great because I've seen him go for so much more when listed properly. Oh well ♥

Hey everyone!

I'm interested in buying the Halloween Umbreon and Espeon plushies, it's very high up my wants list, but I'm having a hard time telling which are real, and which are bootlegs.

I found the following link on Amazon with an incredible discount. If it's real, I really don't want to pass it up, but there's a high chance that it's fake.

LinkCollapse )

Thanks in advance if you can let me know what you think!

(If anyone has legit ones for sale I'm definately interested)

Hey again everyone!

I haven't had very many things happening lately other than I received my Greninja and Delphox tomy figures that I ordered almost a month ago....

Also, I would like to apologize to the couple people I had to back out on sales over the weekend. I had received an unexpected insurance bill that unfortunately I had to pay. =\
So I apologize.


In other news, I have a few wants that I would like to add to the wants list. If you know anything or own one of these, let me know please.


Wants....Collapse )


Thanks everyone! hopefully I will have some pictures to take a collection update!
