Hi every one :)

Hi every one !
Am new to this community and i thought maybe i should post something so i will  start with interdusing my self properly

Am 30 years old (hope that am not too old in the community ) and I work as Internal Audit manager which is a very boring job by theway (donot study accounting! lol)  and i have 2 kids (girl and boy)

any way since i was kid i always wanted to have a pokemon collection , but in Jordan (which am originaly from) it is like impossible to find pokemon toys (specally figures) so i strated to make them by using colored clay ..

After couple of years i stopped making pokemon and i also stopped watching since i was very busy in my life (finding a job and getting married .. etc) but i kept playing pokemon vedio games

Lately my career shifted to Oman , and the first year i was almost alone without my family .. and at that time i started to think ( can i still make pokkemon ?) so i tried .. i feel like now my hands are heavy .. but still can do something .. then i started to search on the internet about pokemon fegures .. (it is a new world ! lol) .. and thats it .. i started to collect ! and i found this amazing community and i decided to join !

And to make the journy fun , i started as the old way ,, i got the starters first (Kanto)

And then the Charizard X, Y , and some other grass pokemon :)
Collapse )

By the way i wanted to share with you what i made by my hand for now .. and i also started to by Gen 1 .. so you may notice that the next genration is kinda look more good due to that am still practicing .. and once i reach a good level i will remake the Kanto team and some of the others that need adjustments
These are all made by Air-Dry clay .. and painted with oil color .. (still working on materials )

Collapse )

I am working on this one now .. can you guess ?

Collapse )

at the end , am still new to this site and the communnity so help me do not judge me .. and i still did not finish my profile 100% soon i will add what i want .. i hope i will be good friend with all of you .. feel free to add me and contacting me ..

Thank you have a good day :)

SSS Gets!

Even though I've been around here since like 2013, this is the first Spring Swap I ever got to be a part of! And considering I don't post much at all here (I don't even have a collection site or wishlist), whoever got me had a real challenge! And that person was...

New Metal Figure Gets! Plus Trading Card Set Value Question?

I recently won several new lots from YJ, all of them being metal figures.

They haven't arrived to me yet but I couldn't resist sharing the stock sale photo of the biggest lot I purchased.

If you look very closely in the middle of the picture you can see Cubone???!! I have not been able to find one for sale in the past 3 years of collecting. This lot had so many figures I needed and that cubone was the icing on the cake.

Once everything arrives I will be sure to post full pictures, but I just had to share this right now. Also with a lot this large and the several others I bought I will be updating my sales once again. I will post an update once everything arrives and gets sorted out.

Collapse )I have several sets of pokemon trading cards that I was considering parting with and was wondering about the fair value on them. One is the Gym Heroes set, it is missing cards 23, 32, and 102 out of 132. All in near mint condition. The other is a gym challenge set missing cards 7, 14, 18, and 103 out of 132. I also have a base set missing 23 of 102 cards. Several holos are there but no Charizard or Blastoise, all commons, uncommons, and rares are near mint. I was offered an amount for all 3 sets that just seemed way to low, but I want to make sure Im being fair.

I also have a base 2 set I would like to know the value for. It is complete and only has one damaged card, Clefable holo, everything else is near mint.

Any help with all of this would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime my sales are still open and I added some Pracoro dice that recently arrived. The lot I bought had several doubles. Here is the link to my sales: http://iamconfused1.livejournal.com

hgss comic book pages, pokedex pages, etc for sale!

I got a new HG/SS comic book in the mail today, so I am once again offering up pages!

I was granted sales permission to my previous account, jodie_kathleen, on 19 September 2014 by entirelycliched.
Feedback for my previous account can be found here, and is also linked to on my feedback for my current account.

The HG/SS comic book pages look something like this:

Tagging some people that have commented on my previous sales for individual Pokemon:
stalkingsuicune -- Suicune
flaaffy -- Flaaffy
kittay752 -- Jynx
princessmegnu -- Ditto
doryphish333 -- Entei, Ho-Oh

I also have the HG/SS quiz book! The pages look something like this:

And lastly, I have the XY quiz book! The pages look a little something like this:

The HG/SS comic book and quiz book, and the XY quiz book do not have every Pokemon inside, so you tell me what Pokemon you're looking for, and I will look through the books and take photos of any pages that I find!

However! If you want me to look through the books for a particular Pokemon, I do expect you to buy something from them! Searching can take some time, and I would prefer my efforts not be wasted.

I also have
a pokedex book that documents every Pokemon up through Gen 4. The pages look like this:

You tell me what Pokemon you want, and I will find and send the page to you! Please note that I will not be taking photos of individual pages.

Pages are $2.00 USD each + fees. The HG/SS comic and quiz book pages, and the XY quiz book pages can be mailed in a letter envelope without charge to the US. The pokedex pages require an additional $1.00 shipping fee because they need to be mailed in a manila envelope. I will ship internationally, but I have to charge extra for international postage.

I also have some book pages and a book from my previous sales still available, which are displayed under the cut below.

Thanks for looking!

postcard collection

Hey everyone, how's it going? I'm waiting on a few things before I show off my Skarmory and Rampardos collections, but I did finally get around to photographing all of my postcards! Specifically, I collect the postcards illustrated by Keiko Fukuyama from around 1998-2000. I currently have 25 designs! I really love these illustrations so I wanted to share them here.

I hope you can forgive me for not removing them from their sleeves (and for my shaky hands, haha.)

SSS gets! Plus question about traveling to Japan

Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I was excited to find my spring swap on the doorstep! My partner was the wonderful spritzzie!
Collapse )

In other news, it looks like my family might be taking a vacation to Japan this summer, and I get to plan the trip! I'm so excited, especially because of all the merch coming out for the 20th anniversary. If anyone has any advice for me, I'd greatly appreciate it! We plan to visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka using a Japan Rail Pass. :)

Pokemon of the Week - Sylveon!

The rules are simple, you can post pictures, discuss how awesome this pokemon is, look for merchandise or even tell us stories! Please remember to keep it on topic.

(These posts are meant to be all about these pokemon, so your post doesn't have to include merchandise! Have one in game? Saw a cute picture online? Post it!)

Random "what would you do question"

I have nothing new to post unfortunately. But I did think of an interesting question to ask you guys while out thrifting.


So let's say you're at a Goodwill or other major Thrift store. You head back to the toy area. And you see a small child. With your grail plush in their hand. Like for me that would be a Smoochum Pokedoll. Hell, what if they were carrying a PC Giant? He takes it over to his mom/dad and they allow them to hold onto until they check out. So.

Would you talk to the kid and convince them to give it to you? Or would you painfully watch that pokedoll go into the check out line and walk out with the kid? Offer the parent money? It's really a hard decision to make.

I am really bad with interacting with small children so there is no way I would be able to get a kid to give up what's to them a new Pokemon stuffed friend. Plus who am I to take away that newly found happiness from them? Most likley it would end up in the bottom of the toy bin in a week but still....

What would you do?

Pokken Tournament Pikachu is ready for battle.

I received my Pokken Tournament Kuji Prize A Pikachu figure today. I love large figures and Pokemon doesn't really make too many of them. Big thanks to tsuiling for helping me get this and for delivering it to me in person today at Emerald City Comic Con. First time meeting a fellow LJ user in real life. It was a lot of fun nerding out over Pokemon and swapping stories on how we each go about finding our Pokemon merch. Well, here he is:

He's huuuge! He's got that "What are you gonna do about it?!" scowl. Such an attitude. I love him! At nearly eight inches tall he is by far the largest Pikachu figure I have in my collection and I think the biggest Pikachu figure made.
*Grumpy Pikachu for scale.

tsuiling also hooked me up with these little guys. Ketchup Pikachu and Chef Pikachu are adorable.
