Pokemon cube? o_o

So I kind of have a small Swablu/Altaria side collection going on at the moment, but I'm struggling to find new merch. While I was looking through Google images I came across the most bizarre Swablu item that I didn't even know existed. Behold a Pokemon... cube?

This picture is from an old comm sales post (if the seller would like me to take it down then let me know! XD Sorry it's the only picture of this item I could find!). I think the tag says they are Banpresto, but I don't know anything else about them besides that. Does anyone know what they are, or why they exist? XD And even more importantly, does anyone have one to sell? (though I'm only interested in the one with Swablu on I'm afraid!) I'm not even sure what they're called to search on Y!J for them haha! XD
Also, while I'm on the topic of Swablu, does anyone have either of these Swablu items for sale (excluding the Swablu megablock and Vaporeon)?

They are the Altaria bell, clear Swablu kid, Pokemon time stickers, and Pokemon time Swablu phone charm. Also looking for the Swablu bell keyring (with the Swablu sitting on a Pokeball), but couldn't find a photo of it! :/ Once again none of these photos belong to me and if the owners would like me to take them down then please let me know! :) Thanks! :)

Wanted: Type Focus 2012 Promo items! Grass/Water&Ice

Hi everyone, so I missed out on these ADORABLE Type Focus promo itrms when they were released back in 2012, and I'm still kicking myself for not getting them then.

Link to when they came out:

I'd be looking for items from the Grass/Bug, and the Water/Ice versions-

As of right now, I am looking for a MATCHING SET of one or the other, with Water/Ice preferred due to practicality. Shipping would be to 46311, US-
I know some of these are on eBay, but I'd really rather try to do business within the community. I'd prefer MWT, but otherwise mild wear is fine.

small want- poke cen Tyrunt plush


I was hoping for my next post to be a gets/sales post since I have quite a few things to sell and am in need of money due to a mini grail popping up, but circumstances have made it impossible to do so at this, instead, I am here with a small want :D is sold out of the Tyrunt plush so I'm here looking to buy one for around the same price as it is sold on there!

I am also still on the look out for a Lugia Pokedoll, I never imagined it would be this hard to find one that I can afford >< Looking to spend around $25 if he is without his hang tag and $40 if he has his hang tag, let me know! Also open to anything Zoroark as well of course :)

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: One last thing, is there a Velboa Riolu Pokedoll or only Minky?

Hawlucha gets! and some musings...

I have gotten a few nice Hawlucha things in the mail lately.

Now I have some musings as well as an opportunity to discuss with other collectors...

As an Hawlucha belongs to Ash/Satoshi in the anime, this Pokémon is appearing on may, many items. Bags, lunch box, pens, movie promo things. Oh, the movie promo things. I originally wanted to only collect strictly exclusvely Hawlucha items, then I was bitten by the completionist's bug and started getting anything that featured Hawlucha on it, no matter how small the fighting bird appeared on the item. I admit this has been extremely frustrating as well as wallet-draining! So after around a year of collecting like this, I'll probably now go back to my original plan, and only get group items if Hawlucha is in a new pose (or the item is totally amazing). I don't even have the space to show off all the random tidbits of stuff he appears on, and I'd feel bad just having them sit in a box!
Instead, I'd like to focus my attention on getting more customs; I'd admittedly love financing artists and their work rather than getting a million things with the same image on it. I can always look for everything else later, and for this purpose I'm still saving every image of things I don't have and uploading them in my wish list. You never know when you might need them again!
Anyone else has found themselves in this situation when collecting a popular Pokémon with a lot of merch?

Anyway, I have actually something really special in the works, so stay tuned for my next collection posts ;) And as always, a reminder you can view my collection, as well as all my wanted stuff, in my website, Plastic Claws.

Thanks for reading and happy collecting!
