New Rules!

Listen up! Im the new mod around here, and I've found a lot of issues with this community. Im here to get this place into the top percentage of livejournal communities! So here's how it'll go:

1. All tags will be removed with the exception of Rattata and Raticate

2. If your photos don't include the color purple, your post will be deleted

3. Spring Swap is cancelled. If you didn't get a gift yet, too bad. People shouldn't wait until the last day to ship anyways.

4. Free For All Fridays will be replaced by Mouse Mondays, where we will come together as a community to discuss everyone's Rattata collections and vote for who has the best.

5. When posting selfies, you must be wearing shorts. The shorts don't have to be in the photo, you just have to be wearing them.

Remember to leave your number in the comments so I can call you about how training my Rattata is going!

FAKE mewtwo tfgs! Quick Guide on how to spot them

Hello everyone, I have had an interest in kaiyodo figures for a while, and a special interest in the tfgs. I have noticed a BIG problem. The holiest of grails, the Mewtwo TFG has a bunch of fakes floating around being sold as real! This is a serious problem especially considering how much it goes for ($300+).

I have attempted to put together a guide explaining the differences and a saveable reference image that recaps it. Please note that I do not own the Mewtwo tfg so I am only going by the internet and what I notice personally. But, hopefully this guide will hopefully be of use. I thought I should put this out as I have been seeing the fakes being sold on ebay recently (some marked as such, some not) and do not want anyone to buy a fake thinking that its real. So, this is more about how to indentify the fakes than how to identify the real ones, if that makes sense.

I recommend that if you do come across a mewtwo tfg that you research a bit yourself as well, try to find someone who has one to compare.
Speaking of which: if anyone does have one, I would love photos of it to add! Specifically the bottom of the rock base and close-ups.

More under the cuts!

Quick new card question..!

What's this Jirachi going to be coming from/a part of? I just saw it listed on a site as a pre-order for something Japanese... anyone know anything about it? Is it going to be a JPN only product? Is anyone going to be buying it and willing to sell the Jirachi card? XD
Gooodness that's the most lovely Jirachi card I've seen yet!! ;w;

Lacking Gallade Merch

After completing my ralts line plush collection (for the moment) i have had a realization i have hardly any gallade divs and other misc merch, so im looking for any of the ralts line with extra consideration given to gallade things. Im looking for anything with ralts line pictured on it.

Also getting alot of gardevoir line things so i may not be interested bc of doubles or triples

Pic under cut bc my phone wont let me shrink my pictures

Gengar Collection Post

Hello friends! I really appreciate anyone who commented on my introduction post last night! It warms me heart to talk to other Pokemon collectors out there and some of them even wanted to see my collection so far! So without further ado here it is (I know it's not too spectacular but it's what I have so far >.<)! Once again I am new so let me know any tips or rules that I could be informed of that could better this post lol.

This is it :). The top of the bookcase and below it are my gengar things (surfing pikachu found his way in there somehow)!

Here is the top of the book shelf, where my AMAZING new edition has been added that is the giant gengarchu! Still on the lookout for the keychain and other gengarchu things!

Next it the left side of the shelf! My beautiful gengar plushies are mostly on this side lol

And of course the right side that is lacking right now but not for long!

That's all for now friends! I have a long journey ahead of me trying to spend all my money on gengar but having enough money to stay alive. I have a few gegnar charms and things hidden all around my shelf so it might be hard to see some of it so I apologize! Thanks for looking though feel free to leave a comment and talk about whatever, I love meeting pokemon collectors!

BONUS: My girlfriends miscellaneous shelf below mine lol

As for sales, since I got my hands on Jirachi, I'm selling off one of my 20th celebi plush!

You can find the post here! I'm looking for $30 shipped within the US (including pp fees and all)


Thanks for looking! I'll try to post a re-intro soon as well, seeing as I've been on hiatus for over a year~

Ultra high grail get! (and more)

Hello all,

Hopefully your Friday is going/has been well! I've been crazy busy and tired all week, but the end of this week is here and I couldn't be happier. One of the highlights of my week that really got me through was the arrival of my big package from Japan, which included my top, top grail!! Check it out! :)

Next, sales plug, as usual. I moved my sales post to my personal journal, since I realized that it's the easiest and most efficient way of updating and maintaining it. I lowered a few prices as well so check out what I have! There's a bunch of straps in brand new condition, some rare figures, a Kyogre TOMY Titan figure from TRU, a bunch of Zekrom, Palkia, Dialga, and Suicune figures, and more. Prices are always negotiable, since I'd like to clear as much stuff as I can before I move back home next month.

Finally, to my SSS giftee, I shipped your stuff out today, so you should hopefully get your stuff soon! (I'm guessing Monday)

If you made it this far, reward yourself with a cookie because you deserve it ;) Anyway, that's all folks. Thanks for reading! :)

Arcanine plush comparison

Hey all! I just received my US arcanine plush, and put it up against the JP one since I know some of you were concerned about potential differences. =)
Collapse )

Hope this comparison helps those who were concerned about major differences in the plush. =)

As a side note, a reminder to any chicago area pkmcollectors! I have arranged a meetup this month on Sunday, April the 17th to meet local members, trade, and sell pokemon goods. All information (including orginal announcement) can be found here.

Also, cannot forget the short sales plug. ^_-

New Gets! Kanto and Johto Starter Comparison

Hey everyone! I've been super busy with school lately and haven't posted in a long time. I'm home for the weekend and in time for an amazing round of gets. I know people have already posted about the 1:1 Kanto Starters, but upon seeing them in real life I feel the need to post again. These guys are INCREDIBLE!

I don't believe I've seen comparison picks with the 1:1 Johto starters so I'd thought I'd take a few just to showcase how big these plush are:

Collapse )

I also got the new wave Kuttari and a bonus mug from the Japanese pokemon webstore. Ampharos is my favourite (surprise, surprise) and I'm tempted to get an awake version too. The mug is very cute and well made for a freebie. In case anyone was wondering I ordered directly through the website and had everything shipped to my tenso address no problem

Thanks for reading and if anyone wants anymore angles or comparisons let me know
