Hello! Introduction post! (Also, looking for Cubones!)

Hey! After a few years hiatus I am back into collecting! I have been browsing this page for a while and decided its time to continue working on my collection of Cubone flats!

A little intro, my names Taylor. Ive been big into pokemon forever and am currently playing through Red and Blue again on the Virtual Console.

I'm interested in buying Cubone flats!
Here is a link to my current collection! (Most of which I got on here a few years ago)
If you have anything neat, stickers or pogs or cards or any other Cubone (or Marowak) flats please let me know! I am working on a wants list for specific items as well and will post it up soon!

Thanks a lot!!

Long Time No See (and want!)

Hello Everyone!

It has been forever since I last posted here, long enough that I can't remember. Right off the bat, I was looking to see if anyone happened to still have extras of the Shiny Magikarp Target Promo card. My fiancee and I are looking to go to Anime Boston this weekend and forgot about the event in all the excitement. Also on that note, anyone going to Anime Boston? I am from PA and have never been there or Boston in general for that matter and would love any tips or guidance from my fellow pkmncollectors in the area. I will also be attending the Swap Meet at the con and will have Pokemon goodies with me. If you will be there feel free to reach out here and maybe we could meet up!

I would also like to add that I will be sending out my SSS package for my Secret Someone tomorrow or Wed. I am sorry for it being so late in the swap but I hope you love it!

I do also plan on getting a collection pic update soon seeing as how long its been since I had an update of any kind at all. The collection hasn't really gotten any major updates besides a new bookshelf (which I went a little crazy over!) Who knew a new bookshelf would be so exciting?

I missed being active here and I am glad to say I will be back now!

Have a good day everyone! <3 grail.jpg

Awesome Get!

I was hesitant to buy this, since it was so expensive, but it was so worth it! It's a beautiful watch, definitely not a toy. Real metal, it opens and the lid is a magnifying, and it works great. I'm so tempted to take it around with me to actually use. The only things I can say about it is I wish it was slightly heavier, and when setting it, the second hand doesn't turn, so it's hard to get it accurate to the second. I think mine is a few seconds off. I went a little overboard with the photos, but it's so photogenic!

SSS Get and Note about 3D Tazo GB!

My SSS parcel arrived today! :D This is the first time I've participated so I was so excited to see what goodies my partner had bought me! And they definitely didn't disappoint!

My partner was puckyducky and they wrapped up everything super nicely in some awesome Shawn the Sheep paper! :D Wow so many things to unwrap! :D
Collapse )
And one quick note to the members who participated in my 3D tazo Group Buy...
So the tazos have arrived, but they're not in the condition I was expecting. Some of them are dirty or have paint rubs, some have cracks on their frames (not a problem I guess if you were planning to build them anyway) and the poor Raticate one is missing one of its hands! :/
I hope this is okay! I can provide photos if people are especially worried about their tazos, but I'm not too sure what the rule is for situations like this? I think constructing the figures will hide most of the paint rubs, but yeah not sure what to do about that Raticate's hand! :/ Looking at the photo now it is missing there too.
The only thing I can think of is messaging the seller, since they said these were in 'the best condition', but I've never been in a situation like this before so not too sure what to do... XD Any advice would be appreciated!  

want: Noibat Tomy plush (+ Noibat Tomy figure)

Hi there! I would like to purchase one of the recently released Noibat Tomy plushes. I don't have anything to trade for it.
So, does anybody have one for sale or would be willing to pick one up for me? It doesn't necesseraly have to come with a hang tag.
Name your price ^^ Shipping would be to Germany.

I'm also looking for the Noibat Tomy figure. I don't want to purchase it by itself, but if anybody has the plush and the figure, I'd be interested in buying both at a time!
emolga love her afro

I'm backkkk! Some sales, Collection Update.

Hello all! My last post here was NOVEMBER 2011. Holy cow, I haven't even really done any collecting since. We moved 2 times in the last few years and had EVERYTHING that was part of my collection boxed up. But now that we finally bought our house, they are FREEEEEE.

My name is Ashley, 26 years old. Been a fan since the original pokemon blue. Never stopped since!! Dragonite is my main, but I'm also into a few other dudes.

So first things first, here is a collection update!

Now some Sales!

So these were never wide-released and went straight to the bargain stores, to my knowledge. Victini is the same as the one that came with Ash in a multipack, but Oshawott IS ANGRY otter, and I don't believe that he was available elsewere. Someone correct me if I am wrong! Both are MIP but have a stupid price sticker on them. Offers start at $5!

Thanks for looking everyone!! Hoping to see some familiar faces still around.

Noibat Plush in San Francisco Japan Town

Hey all, just wanted to let any San Francisco bay area Locals know that the hobby toy shop 'Japantown Collectables' in Japan Town has one of the new US Noibat plushes, I believe in the 15 dollar range, possibly 17.  I've already found 3 at the local targets so I didn't grab it, but it was there when they closed last night.

If you're local you could probably call them to make sure they have it and reserve it.  Just let them know its the purple bat pokemon plush they have hanging up with the plushes near the model kit wall.

I unfortunately will not be doing pick ups as I have a lot on my plate right now, but figured someone here would probably like the chance to grab it.

Best luck!

back where it all began...

Finally got the last few figures I needed to complete my RGBY display. Big thanks to splash and ninfiachan for supplying the Pika family. No matter how much time passes the first generation will always be my favorite. They're timeless. 20 years seems like a lifetime but it doesn't seem that long ago you had to make that all important first decision. Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. After that, everything else is history.

*For the record, I don't use the D-Arts Charizard because I don't like the way he looks.
In case you were wondering. :P


I bought this little guy last year, it was shipped to my parents' house since the shipping would be cheaper. Then this month I finally got a chance to have a friend bring it to the US and ship it to me. This morning I saw a box out of my door, and I knew IT'S MY CORSOLA POKEDOLL finally coming to me!!!

Azelf merch and Zukan Zenkoku 3 GB reminder!

Hi everyone!

Today I want to ask you a few queries about a new collection I'd thought to start: Azelf! I have some perplexities, though, starting with what merch has been officially released.

[New collection: Azelf!]You may remember that I am a zukan collector - and will be until I own all the lines I like (which are pretty much all existing zukans :P) -, but am now thinking about opening up to new collecting adventures! After all, zukan lines have been (likely?) discontinued and won't last forever. :( That's why I came up with the idea of collecting one of my favourite pokémon: Azelf!

At first I thought about starting seriously collecting kaiyodo figures, as I am very fond of them, but I am actually really bugged by the way they scale (yeah, that's all zukans' fault - they spoiled me :D): I don't think it would look so nice to display a venusaur next to a bulbasaur that is just as big, even though taken alone they look splendid. So I think that the kaiyodo will be just a "side collection" with the ones I really like best (which are quite a few in any case).

Then I thought about plushes or TCG or pins... but I'm really not a fan of any of them. I like random cards and random plushes - but to me really no one can compare to the beauty of well made figures!

Eventually, I realized that focusing on one pokemon would be fun! But who is my favourite pokémon? That I can't answer unfortunately - I have just too many favourites for too many different reasons. I believed it was impossible to pickup just one or a few...and even then, most of my favourites (like Mewtwo, Articuno, Latias or Suicune) are just too expensive for me to keep up! I was looking at something less demanding to start with...

But then, looking for the Sinnoh trio zukans (which, by the way, I am still searching!) I had the epiphany: isn't Azelf just so amazing? Yeah, I think it definitely is.

Creepy but super cute at the same time. Clever and powerful. I was just in love with this guy back in the day, but since it has never gained its fair share of attention I happened to "forget" about it too soon after stopping playing DPP...but now my love for them has revived and I would LOVE to collect them!

What are your opinions on Azelf merch-wise, though? I have been surfing the net lately to see what's there but it just doesn't look too fun to collect...there seems to be like three plushes (pokédoll, jakks, canvas - of which I only really fancy the canvas one), a few figures (Tomy MC, zukan, kid, block figure and jakks) and a metal charm?! And then what, just flats? Is there anyone collecting any of the trio who could give me more insights on them?

On a side note and back to my main focus, just a quick reminder of the GB of the Zukan Zenkoku Collection 3 set! There's just a few missing (among which the rare Kingler and Cloyster sets!)

Thank you all for reading or just scrolling by :P have an awesome one! :)
