Back from Japan! Updated sales and photos coming soon

Hey everyone,

I'm back from my 10-day trip to Japan. First of all, I have to say that it was amazing! Pretty clean, super-polite people, very organized system, great food and sights, just to name a few. But that's going off-topic.

I haven't really checked the comm page when I was traveling so I'm sure I missed out on a lot. But looks like I got back just in time to join the friending meme party!

Anyway, I managed to visit quite a few Pokemon Centers when I was there, in addition to my other adventures. I checked out the following: Tokyo Bay, Mega Tokyo, Skytree Town, Yokohama, Kyoto, and Osaka. I also stopped by the small Pokemon store at Tokyo Station, as well. I have a couple of things that I'll be adding to my sales post. It isn't much, though, because most of the stuff I got were for myself or for my friends.

I'll do a special gets post on that eventually, as well as post pictures of what the Tokyo Bay and Mega Tokyo stores looked like when I was there. I'll probably make an album somewhere else and link you to them because I took about 200 photos between the two. I took pictures of EVERYTHING!! (I hope I didn't get judged too harshly for that...hehe)

Speaking of my sales post, it is now open once again. Shipping days will still be on Tuesdays. Stay tuned for the pictures! I'll try to organize them all sometime this week.

Also...if you happen to have any questions about what Japan is/was like, I can do my best to answer them as well.

All right, that's all for now! It's great to be back :)

New friends for Squirtle & help with Vaporeon Pokedoll?

Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I am finally posting about something other than female Pikachu XD I am SUPER excited to show you some new plushies I recently added to my collection.

I am also posting because I was wondering if I could get some help determining if this Vaporeon pokedoll (JPN, 2008, minky) is legit. There are a few things that are making me think it may not be...
Edit: Thanks to everyone who gave me their opinion on the Vaporeon pokedoll! It is a bootleg, but thankfully the seller was nice and gave me a full refund :) <3

Thanks for reading, everyone! I hope you enjoy your week :)

September Modpost - Reminders and Rule Changes

It's been a while hasn't it? No we're not dead, mods have just been busy with real life things! Today we have a few rule reminders as well as a rule modification and two new additions.

Rule Updates
Effective immediately, the 35 day rule has been updated to the 60 day rule. With the change in time PayPal gives to dispute (a whole 180 days) the 35 day rule has become outdated. We have upped it to 60 just so each party has time to contact the seller and/or moderators to fix the situation.

This rule does not effect Group Auctions! - If there is a problem with the time limit on items in a Group Auction please contact your GA runners and moderators immediately.

Rule Additions

PayPal Disputes
We have added a part about PayPal disputes since this has become an issue. If a user has opened a PayPal dispute in relation to a sale made on the community (PM sales do not count as they are not on comm and under sanction of the moderators) without first contacting the seller and then contacting the moderator team we will be placing a temporary ban on that user.

There is absolutely no need to open a dispute before contacting either the seller or the mods. If this happens multiple times we will be handing out permanent bans. Period. PayPal disputes are a very serious deal and should be used as a last resort only if the seller has not kept up with communication.

This also means that buyers need to opt for faster shipping or insurance on their packages. If you are worried about an item getting lost, get a tracking number or insurance!

Sellers, you should all be keeping a record of shipment. This means keep any and all paperwork related to your sales, it can mean the difference between winning and losing a PayPal dispute!

Claims Posts
We have added a rule for sellers regarding claims posts. At this time a member may only have 2 of either claims, GAs or GBs open at any time (not 2 GAs, 2 GBs or 2 claims, 2 combined). Claims that are ongoing are not effected by this new rule. Here is an example of the sort of claims post we are talking about. This is not related to the amount of items you can claim in a GA/GB. Hope that clears up some confusion!

This rule also is for two separate lots. Multiples of the same claims is fine (like in the example linked above).

★ For anyone who hasn't seen yet, feedback is back up! We had an issue with our host but everything should be fixed now

★ Please remember to keep up to 4 pictures outside of cut limits! All the people who live in the boonies with really slow internet will thank you.

★ Leave any other suggestions / questions in the comments below!

it's been 10,000 years...

I've been part of this comm for a few years now and yet this is my first collection post r i p

for those who don't know me (ie like everyone) hi i'm tekirai!! how are you all. i'm 22 and from northern ireland, but I spend a lot of my time in england these days! my favourite pokemon is definitely MEOWSTIC - sry espeon bb you got dethroned - but I have a bunch of other faves too! I don't post a lot because reasons, but I have a good excuse to now that all of my collection is finally in one place. it's very hastily arranged and photo'd because most of this had been in my student home and this space wasn't originally there for it to go into once I moved back home ;w; aaand I'm jetting off to england again tomorrow so maybe... one day I will arrange it properly. for now it'll have to sit and gather dust while i live in a tiny room with The Chosen Few sob sniff

I was always quite a casual collector and only want items that I like, and it's been a good few years for me collectionwise! I've managed to find every single item I've been after save for one, and I can say I'm fairly content with my collection at the moment. pound sterling is so dire right now that I think the timing was convenient anyway. orz

so you wouldn't BELIEVE what my favourite merch items are. nope not at all

Clean-Up Finds

Story time. So, I wanted to play some Pokemon XD:Gale of Darkeness today and it ended up turning into a cleaning project. I enlisted my sister's help and we vacuumed behind all the computer desks. While cleaning, I found something that went missing and I thought I would never see again, and I finally put something away that's mine but I keep forgetting I have.

Collapse )

Finding that tag made me so happy, and I wanted to share the pretty swanky phone I finally laid claim to. B) Normally I wouldn't post something this minor, but I don't think it would be too much of a bother considering that I don't post much anyway.

Christmas/Dittosaur Auctions! Other Sales, Including Modern Art Kuji Items!

Hello everyone! It sure has been a long time ^^; 90% of my summer was working and I recently had to change jobs because of my previous job underpaying me and just overall treating their employees like Trubbish :/ (Totally unrelated note...unless you have to, don't work for Pickleman's...) But now I work at Chipotle and everything is fine and dandy! :D I've had time to look over the things I have and decided I can definitely weed some things out ^^; I also have still yet to get rid of some extras that came with some lots I bought nearly a year ago * -* So I'm finally getting down to it! I've got some nifty stuff, including some Christmas themed items for auction! Come take a look! :D
