Room Meme!

About maybe a year ago, areica96 did something called a room meme. (did I get it right?) Anyway, what feels like a year ago, I thought it may be fun to do again since I'm sure a lot of our collections have grown since then~ Whoever makes fun of my small room gets power gem'd! So here is mine:

Good news! The PKMNC Pathtags have finally shipped~!
There was apparently a delay in production due to the Chinese New Year so I was getting a bit worried but I got notification this morning that they have been shipped. I'll be prepping the envelopes and such in the next couple days and be putting out notices as soon as they arrive; so those of you who pre-ordered plese keep an eye out for the notifcation.

Figured it would also be a good moment to post my quagy wants :P

Collection, Possible Trades, and Quick Sales

First is an announcement:
For the TCG and Accessories GA, I have received the notification that the lot is in the hands of my middleman. I was originally thinking about combining this lot with my other purchase to cut off the international shipping for everyone. But, I totally forget about the release date of the Emerald Break I pre-ordered. I guess the whole order would be delayed based on the shipping speed of this specific part. So, I ask the middleman to ship the GA lot individually. With that being said, we have the last three cards claimed and I would use that amount of money to help cut down the cost anyhow. Please be prepared for the payment 2 most likely popping up early next week.

Now back to the main topic. I am really gone crazy for the AMZ cards, which stand for Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos. I learnt this three-letter abbreviation from a person on Facebook and I think it really saves time whenever I refer to these three birds. I am zealous about AMZ starting from playing the Gen I game, but I did not dare to start a card collection until late last year. For anyone who had experience with card collection, it is always very costly to begin a collection of popular pokemon. For example, you could try keyword "japanese gold star espeon" and you would have got a heart attack seeing the prices. So, I decide to collect the rarest AMZ cards IMO. I do not have all the cards in my hands right now, and they won't arrive in a single package at the same day. I've bought people on eBay from Japan, Italy, US, and etc to dig every card I want. Now I am gonna show you the cards and the story behind every single of them.

These are the cards I have in hands right now. The first row is from a starter deck released in Japan called Quick Starter Gift set (クイックスターターギフト). It was released back in December 4, 1998, and is well known for including 5 non-glossy holofoil cards of Scyther, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Master Ball. They are more valuable than the glossy non-holo version in original Vending Machine set. I would say a mint copy of the card is worth at least $30 (not sure about the Master Ball), and it varies for each Pokemon. I don't know why but Moltres typically has the lowest value while Zapdos is always the most expensive one.

The second row is from the Flight of Legends (伝説の飛翔) and is my favorite set in Japanese because you can tell from the picture that both Articuno and Moltres have holographic all over the card itself. Typical dot pattern on Pokemon and star pattern on the rest of the card. In addition, the artworks of the birds are my favorites, even better than the newer EX's IMHO. I would say a conservative pricing for each copy would be $30, but here comes the BIG GUY:

Yea, the Zapdos ex. I paid 8000 Yen at the day the seller decided to lower the starting bid and made it a BIN price. Not only the Zapdos is the most costly among the trio, but also the 1ST ED mark in the lower left corner made this card such sought after and rare. Moreover, I won this card in a gem mint condition though I have not obtain the card; but I know it because I have bought some cards from the same seller before. They slightly overpriced cards, like this card was listed 10000 yen for the first time, but you would find the cards worth these values when they arrive. They are GEM MINT.

The Zapdos at the middle is the one from the expansion pack (拡張パック). If I said the Base set, you may get an idea how much this card is worth. In Japan, they also made the 1ST ED when the TCG first came out, but in a different way. A cheaper, less rare copy of the card would have the rarity symbol on the lower right corner. My copy, as you can tell, is a 1ST ED because it does not have that symbol. Guess what? This card is worth 4000 yen on suruga-ya, the site I always refer to and famous for best price used items, and it is only in excellent condition. If it is based on a scale from 0 to 10, it can only gain a score of 5. In other words, a GEM MINT copy of this card is the same value as the 1ST ED Zapdos from English Base set.

Collapse )
This next set is from the Pokemon Web set (ポケモンカード★web). They are released on October 20, 2001 and are available online exclusively. Buyers can order packs of ten online and have their cards sent to them. The 1ST ED symbols are on the lower right corner this time for these barcoded cards. I would price at least $20 per card and I think I don't see the copy of Moltres in this set very often so I would credit it the rarest among this set.

Collapse )At the very end of this talk, I would like to show the deck box from the Flight of Legends I obtained from a recent GA hosted by myself. It was a very wonderful auction and we won the lot containing a lot of rare deck boxes from 2003 to 2006. I think that summarizes my introduction to the Japanese card collection for AMZ. I wish this discussion is helpful for all card collectors, especially for potential AMZ collectors. You should see from the prices I listed that I have already spent quite a lot for these cards over the past couple of months.

Below are the remaining cards I put up for offers and some other pulls I did from the intermittent loose packs I got. They are still up for offers, but at this time I am also open for trades if you have any AMZ cards from any language, except for Japanese ones; because they may be duplicates for my SSS gift though I am not 100% sure what gift I would receive, which is the fun part I like the idea of this swap. So, if you have any cool AMZ cards, comment below or hook me up to your sales post. I believe we can work something out for a smooth trade which satisfies both of us. Condition varies but not very good starting from Ho-oh and ending with Darkrai. Will's Espeon is not available since it is part of my collection.

Just a quick Question about Hobby_Japan

Hello there everyone!
Today, I simply have a question about Hobby_Japan.
In February, specifically on February 15th, I ordered two Petit plushies from hobby_japan, an Altaria and a Wailord; but, sadly, I still have not received them. :'(
The window for there arrival was between February 25th-March 10th.
I'm quite worried since I've had packages from Japan ordered after that date already arrive, and I'm concerned that something bad might have happened to the package.
I'm thinking of waiting just one more week before contacting the seller...
So my question basically is, what should I do, and is this a normal situation for people who have ordered from hobby_japan recently or in the past?

Anniversary :D And of course, repaints!

As of tomorrow, I've been part of this community for one whole year! (I knew figure collecting wouldn't just be a fad I was going through XD).

My collections expanded a lot, by my stingy-with-money standards. And it'll grow a lot more, I'm sure, with packages expected even as I type this! :D I need to figure out my display again...!

Anyway, the before and after shots:
