I've gotten so many little things in the past few weeks... from the community and Ebay/Amazon. My collection(s) are growing. I must say that looking above my monitor at my Suicune collection makes me happy. I'm not exactly sure why, or how to explain it, but it makes me smile. I went from having nothing but a single Suicune card, to this:
It's not the best set up at the moment, but it will do. Having them on my desk eventually resulted in my one Suicune Cho Get to be chewed by a troublesome cat named Toby. That's why I have two. The one on the right is turned so you can't see the ribbon chewed in half and the teeth marks in the purple fluff. Toby also ran off with my brand new keychain when I left it lay on my desk for a few seconds to go get a piece of tape to hang it where it is now. Thankfully he had it by the string and never got ahold of the actual figure. So I placed them above my monitor in a small shelf that is getting overrun by Suicune! I might have to evict the Eeveelu TOMYs in the next door shelf to expand my Suicune shelf!
I enjoyed putting the PLAMO Suicune model together. The instructions being in Japanese didn't slow me down one bit. I was EXTRA careful putting the stickers on and tried to line them up the best I could. Out of everything I have obtained, I think by far my favorite piece is the Suicune Motion/Clipping Figure. It's pose, the detail.. something about it makes me love it the most.
In non-Suicune-get-news, I was very lucky to stumble apon an auction with the Charizard Chess figure I've been after. I've seen it going on Ebay for 20$+ just for Charizard. This one, however, had both Charizard and Charmander for just 19$. I snagged it up. The seller was even nice enough to send me a Mega Charizard Y coin with them!( Collapse )
And another great find on Ebay that saved me a little money, the Charizard TFG! I won the auction on the starter set that included the Charizard TFG for only 14$ with shipping. I figured I could probably sell the other figures later and make most of that back, leaving me paying almost nothing for the Charizard TFG. I may or may not yet, as I do love the detail of these figures. The box got really damaged in the transit, but the figures were all fine. Thank god I don't care about MIP or anything. (Pardon Mortichai checking things out in the pictures. He likes to inspect my new stuff.)( Collapse )( Collapse )
