Mijumaru - Halloween!

Sales Update, Metal Collection XY 3 Claims Post, and Dedennes!

Good day! Hope everyone's Saturday is going well!

Today I come with three things! First, a small sales update:

Second, I'm a nuts-o and need the Pumpkaboos AND Greninjas from this set, so I've decided to do a pick-up for the Metal Collection XY 3 Set! Information can be found below the cut for this:

And third, have a picture of my Dedennes:

This isn't everything I have of him, since a lot of the stuff is awkward to display! But it's pretty much all the figures and plush I have of him at the moment, save a few I didn't get in the picture because I forgot. Oopsies. ^^;;

That's it for now! I'll be posting soon about the metal figures and such, since they come out in the new few weeks.

Thanks again, guys!

So... my grail

Thank you guys for the ones that helped me the last time, but my grail has been detached from my hands once more T^T
If any one of you have the 1:1 togepi plushh 4799450
I would be very thankful if you'd sell me one, it's my birthday and I want to give it to myself (:
Thanks again guys

Question about Kids

Does anyone happen to know whether or not the kids in this set from 2004 had clear variants? They are almost all reissues of kids from earlier sets that DID get clear variants, but I'm not sure if this release in particular did have them.

Any help is appreciated. ^^

Thanks so much for the feedback, everyone! This set DID have clears, for the curious.

Hot topic eeveelutions plush and some Tomy plush

So yesterday I went to the mall in search of random collection junk and some stuff for a Finn cosplay which I get to wear to school (YAY!) and I saw some eeveelution plush at Hot topic. I know we have had several posts about it but I've never seen pictures so I snapped a few. I was going to buy jolteon but it was like $18 here so I didn't. I ended up buying nothing because I found things on the internet I wanted. I also went to a store called Niko Niko (A.K.A The bootleg store which has cruddy looking bootlegs) and they had some REAL Tomy plush of X and Y characters which is a surprise because everything there is usually a bootleg. I could tell it was real don't worry. SO ya… Pictures in da cut!
Please click on the title of this post to see only my post so you can see the pictures good!

Sorry about the cruddy phone pictures!
Thanks for reading!

Hey guys, anyone one the community have a Whimiscott pokedoll they'd be willing to sell for cheap? Same goes for a mismagius pokedoll. I really want someone here and not on ebay or yahoo japan etc. I don't mind what condition they are in, but just not too damaged. Thx!!!

Edit: If you have one your willing to sell, just throw me an offer, I'm next to not caring about the price. (I can't even FIND one for sale online ANYWHERE)

hai guiz

Apologies for my several-month-long hiatus! As many noticed, the mods basically had many life-changing events come up at once, so we were severely short-staffed for a while and are trying to get back into a rhythm now. Thank you so much to everyone who's been doing their part to keep the community running smoothly!

Before diving in to the typical reminders/clarifications, I'm going to address what has been of chief concern to many members:

✰Sales permission✰

All applicants since June have been waiting far too long. We know this, and we are very sorry. Only certain mods handle sales permission at the moment while others are still gaining experience and such, so this delay was a result of the aforementioned life events, not a lack of caring. If you still would like to make snarky comments about wait times after being approved, consider doing so here or in the Report a Problem thread to avoid unnecessary negativity in your first sales posts since most buyers will have had nothing to do with it.

● I processed about a page of applications the other day and will knock out more in the next 1-2 days. They need a little bit of space not to be irritating, but because an influx of that many sales posts would make buyers' eyes glaze over at the sheer quantity and likely result in fewer transactions.

● For the sake of transparency, here's the short version of how sales permission applications are processed:

1) Upon the application submission, mods check to make sure minimum requirements are met (participation and/or feedback). If they are not, the application will not be considered for the next couple of months, as discussed here.

2) If the requirements are met, the applicant's posts/demeanor/transactions/etc. are observed for the next 2-4 weeks. This is to make sure the person doesn't drink any Mr. Hyde potion after completing the application.

3) The mod then will read through all feedback to make sure there are no off-community "bought from" or "traded with" transactions (SEE BELOW) that the applicant is trying to use toward sales permission. Then, posts will be skimmed to ensure the applicant has a general sense of community etiquette.

4) Then approval is given, or a request to reapply later with an explanation.


Community feedback is only for transactions that occur within the community. This means that if you trade before you have 10 community feedback or you sell before you have sales permission through private messages or what have you, it does not count toward your community feedback. It is purely an off-community transaction, and literally all it does is create more work because then we have to login to the feedback admin and delete it.

Previously, illegitimate feedback was ignored during the sales application process, but it's become pretty rampant as of late. As of today, any sales permission applicants with feedback for private transactions on the pkmncollectors feedback site will experience delays with approval. This is because I am now going to make sure to delete said feedback before sales permission is granted, and I'm not going to break away to do that ASAP when I'm in application-processing mode. Feedback deleting is strictly for feedback-deleting mode.

If you accidentally leave/receive feedback for an off-community transaction, let us know ASAP in the Report a Problem before it holds anything up.

EDIT: Leave feedback if someone asks you to! Particularly if a buyer or GA participant is asking for feedback, s/he is likely trying to build their reputation/apply for sales permission. If you very easily got everyone to leave you feedback to help you with sales permission, share the joy! If it was difficult for you, vow to be a good feedback-leaver despite those before you who could not do the same! Either way, please be courteous.

If a buyer/GA participant was less than stellar but you do not want to leave a neutral for whatever reason, tell them you don't feel comfortable leaving feedback for that transaction because they're new/still learning/etc. and give advice on improvements.

✰Japan-based middlemen✰

It is against the rules to ask community members in Japan to do favors for you. This includes making store runs, getting you stuff from the grocery store, getting you stuff from 7-11, performing as a deputy service, ETC. ETC. There are no exceptions to this. Those who wish to perform these services (and it is a service, so expect to pay a commission) will advertise of their own accord.

✰Paypal disputes✰

Did you send anyone money on or before August 17 and are still waiting on the merchandise? Ask them where your stuff is, and if you do not receive tracking info or the item within the next few days, open a paypal dispute.

● Escalate your paypal dispute to a claim within those 10 days that paypal affords you if you still have not received the item.

Never close your dispute/claim until you receive the item/tracking information! There are no exceptions to this, at all, ever.

● In cases where a GA host/seller has something awful happen and they need more time, s/he must issue out temporary refunds! This involves refunding everyone's money, little by little, over the course of a few days and having everyone re-send payment as a new transaction immediately. This prevents the host/seller from being stuck with a ton of disputes when s/he still plans on following through and protects the buyer's finances. Talk to a mod before doing this.

✰Use the Report a Problem thread✰

● Please let us know at the start of when you notice an issue arising so we can do more to prevent it from escalating/find agreeable solutions for everyone. For example, by the time we receive reports about GA hosts disappearing, it's usually after the dispute limit for the first (and most expensive) payment has already elapsed. :(

Avoid arguing with fellow community members! There is no reason for this. These are people who share your hobby, who can help you find grails, who can help you host awesome group auctions. Don't cause yourself unnecessary upset by engaging someone if s/he says something to offend you. Instead, report it. Respectful, on-topic debate is never discouraged, but please try to step away and let us know instead at the point where anything is starting to feel insulting.

That's enough text for today! As always, feel free to comment below with any comments/questions/concerns you may have, or with anything you'd like to see addressed in the next modpost.

One thing we are excited to announce is the upcoming acknowledgement of our community's Top 10 Monthly Commentators, so stay tuned! Or whatever the internet version of staying tuned is.

Two Minute Review-Mega Charizard X!

Hey guys, I just wanted to post this here for your viewing pleasure. I'm looking for some pointers on how to make better videos come future reviews in this series I started. I did a collection video I'm uploading even as we speak so that'll be posted later. Honest opinions please...I need the feedback. This is a review for the Mega Charizard X plush they released on just recently. Thanks for your time and enjoy!


New merch, I think? Also, PKMNCollectors Finland meet-up 2.0; place, date + more info!

Good evening, fellow collectors! First, I stumbled upon these pretty things; Pokemon jewellry! It will include Pikachu, Eevee, Mew and Espeon & Umbreon. These are all very pretty, especially the Umbreon + Espeon one. *o*
Unfortunately, they also are very expensive. ;__;

Source + picture are from Asamis blog, here;
(Smaller preview pic only, sorry! The original file was just so huge. @_@)
Release date is next month, on 4;th of October. Sadly, they are a bit pricey- Pikachu being the cheapest one at 49,000 yen (EDIT; 350€/490$ USD, YIKES!). Also not sure about this since I used Google Translate, but they seem to be made from real silver + gemstones? Available from Pokémon Centers in Japan.

Also, I stumbled across these in eBay and in Asami's blog but I didn't seem to notice any posts about these, so if anyone hasn't noticed these already; New Pokémon With you Badges! This set has Floette, Tyrunt, Amaura, Hawlucha and Goodra ,and I think that they came out already on Centers. :3

Pictures and source; Also from Asami's blog;

And...I have some infor concening the Finland meet-up, finally an update post for this!
I know I said that the next post would be members-only, but I think that this is easier for everyone to see and notice. I actually decided the date and place a little earlier but didn't really have time to sit down and write about it in here until now. Sorry about that.

Quick Metal Figure Question

I've seen a lot of the older keshimon metal figures that are very worn and have a lot of their colors rubbed off.
Are the newer metal collection metal figures prone to similar issues if treated improperly or are they made better and don't require the same amount of care as older keshimons?

Figure identification help!

Hi everyone!

I have a quick question on this figure!
I found this tomy sleeping pikachu while cleaning up today and was wondering the rarity of the figure...
it has that normal takara tomy moncolle shiny coated paint and it says 2007 tomy on it....
Did Takara tomy even release a sleeping pikachu official tomy in 2007?
If anyone can help that would be great!

it looks like this...
