Unexpected Gets!

Alternate title: Working At A Toy Store Comes With Unexpected Perks
and wow is this mercilessly late

Greetings everyone! Today, I'm firing out a little post just to share some VERY unexpected gets that found their way into my collection...a couple months ago actually (as so suavely aforementioned...I'm quite late getting around to this. Oops. >w>).

Now, these items are completely outside of what I would usually purchase for my collection, they come with a bit of a back story as to how they ended up in my possession!:
I formerly worked at TRU not all that long ago with my position putting the Boy's Section under my jurisdiction, consequently our little Pokemon toy section as well! As such, a majority of the merchandise that went out to our shelves within my jurisdictions didn't go unseen by me long. My coworkers were all well aware of my Pokemon collecting hobby, so whenever a new Pokemon something came in, they would let me know in the off chance I had missed it. On one day in particular of them doing this, one of my coworkers came up to me with a large, freshly opened box in tow, simply providing the statement that it contained Pokemon, accompanied by a triumphant grin...

So to spice this post up a little bit more...Share with me your stories, guys :> :
What's the most unexpected item that you've had worm it's way into your collections?

I'm counting on my sales to help my Onemuri Pikachu collection thrive. :P
Speaking of, who here has any sleeping Chu merch for sale/trade? Especially Onemuri Pikachu promo items? Show me anything, please! *u*

I'm also very eager to add to my TCG collection.
I collect Pikachu cards from the TCG, as well as Raichu, Pichu, Plusle, Minun, Emolga, and soon to be Dedenne. This collection is such a pain. XD
Does anyone have any of these cards for sale/trade?
Basically any cards I'm missing from this collection. Clicky~

Jumped the gun from excitement, forgot to end my post. >.>; Haha...

Anywho! Thank you all for looking and I hope everyone's having a wonderful day. ^___^

** Oh!! I've not asked this, but does anyone here also collect sleeping Pikachu (or other Pokemon) merch? I'd LOVE to see your collections!

Any Pokemon in Hawaii?

So I'm in Hawaii right now and I'm going to go thrift store hunting. However, I was wondering if there are any stores that sell any non-US Pokemon merch (there's a Walmart and Target that both have US TOMY stuff). Specifically in Kailua-Kona is where I'm hunting. Thanks for any help :)

Also, I got this figure in San Fran at a store full of bootlegs along with a bootleg Arceus plush and a Tropius TFG (They had so many; even a Suicune, but with the Arceus I didn't want to spend any more... :(). I have no idea what it is and searching Ebay yields nothing. It doesn't appear to be a bootleg and there wasn't anything similar to it at the store.

That's all for now!

A brief collection update!

Hello there, folks!
I regret to say that I have been so disgracefully inactive the past number of months. I am, however, happy to return at last!—And, of course, I have some happy things to share!

A preview!

Also, I hope to have some commission information up very soon! Let me draw your favourite Pokémon and people for you!
Thanks for looking! I can't wait to hear what you have to say. :3 I hope everyone has a fine day (or has had one)!

Re-introducing myself!

Hi! Since I came to this community I had the feeling I didn't introduce myself very properly so perhaps it's never too late to do it now!
Alright, then my name is Ana, I'm 26 years old, self-employed as illustrator, designer and crafter. My goal is to produce merchandising with unusual or least explored material and techniques!
Here in pkmncollectors I'm mainly a crafter, recently in charge of handmade fully customized pokemon keychains as commissions! Though currently I do variation of keychains only I expect to introduce brand new goods in near future!

Regarding collecting, unfortunately I don't really collect anything, mainly because never had the chance even in my younger times since I always lived with the most essential. I don't hide the desire to buy something from you guys although, I always look at your collections and they never failed to amaze me! I really hope to be able, someday, to start collecting probably delphoxes and zoroarks, my favorite mons, once I will be to afford besides my own survival :)

Ah and I'm from Portugal so english is not my first language, just simply love it so much that I practiced my writing all my life and so still last year I took some classes to become more fluent.

That's all! Still this month I will make another sales post as it's allowed to make two by month particularly to show you my newest keychain variation as I didn't have any pictures, until now! See ya!

Looking for Mudkips

I'm putting together a costume for Professor Birch for Sacanime in august, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any large sized mudkip plush? Preferably a 1:1 would be cool. If you have one for sale let me know. I won't be able to make a purchase till next month as I'm about to leave on a trip, so I'm mostly scouting at the moment.

choppity lane pkmn outlet! EDIT

EDIT: So... I hit Storenvy's 500 item limit and will be closing the store.  It will be open until Monday and orders can be placed until Sunday night.  But don't worry, all orders have been shipped!  However, everything that was on the store will be available once again on a pkmncollectors sales post exclusively! Stay tuned, for the storm is coming... I decided to sell my entire collection and that's hundreds upon hundreds of rare plush!!

Hi, everyone!
After the success of my first sales post, I decided to make it into a store for easier shopping! It features 500 items so far, with another 300 to be added next month, so please check back often for new items and promotions! (or just watch for my posts on here, whatever works :D)
Anyway, click the picture to be transported!
(LOL I edited this banner in less than a minute, I will have a proper one next post!)

Tomy sighting!

I was just walking around the Tokyo Outlet in Glendale Galleria, CA. Then I pick up a box of bouncing Dragon balls. I look down and see this:


This is all they have. I also found a DX Serperior here too, but that was last month.

XY Clearfile GA Reminder; International Buyers welcome!

Bidding ends in about 8 hours, at 2 AM EST. I've decided to open the bidding to international buyers since I'll need to stop at the post office to get quotes anyway. We're just below how much we need for the initial bid so bid while you can! I don't mean to post again so soon but I wanted to update on my shipping change!

Pokemon Kids Want!

So the husband and I want to start collecting Pokemon kids, excluding the clear ones!

As a start, we only want the first 151 and any of our actual teams not in the first generation. Our teams can be seen in our icon! My husband is also looking for the Mega Charizard X and the Zoroak Kids.

We are still looking for Trading Figures as well. :D

Since we live in Canada (and International shipping is killer) we are looking for some good deals and looking to buy bulk.

Thanks everyone!

Espurr and Meowstic Collection Update!


(Isn't this banner just so symmetrical?? Another reason why I love to collect these guys! <3 )
Hello everyone! I'm here today to share an update of my current focus in Pokemon collecting: My Espurr/Meowstic collection! My other main and side collections (Snivy, Espeon, Treecko) haven't received many new editions, besides a few small bits and bobs, so this post is focused on my ever-growing psy kitties, plus a few new Pokedoll editions! :3 Let's begin!

Another wants

So I have been having a lot of luck recently with finding some wants so I'm going to give some of the more elusive ones another bash. I'm looking a aggron pencil topper and the metal figures for solrock, seviper, and heracross.
