Shrinky Dink fun

Ello long time no post! So I found some shrinky dink paper in my craft stash and played around. I made a Natu Pokedoll Tag inspired charm! Unfortunately the paper that I have doesn't have the rough side, so I'm stuck with the stupid marker scribbles that colored pencils wouldnt leave. If I can perfect it, would anyone be interested in tag charm comissions? Also did a zapdos and a Xatu who lost a foot in the shrink process haha

Seeking a Bisharp Grail

My mission continues to find a very, literal, Holy Grail of Pokemon Figures.
Pokemon Pose Figure W: Bisharp

kirikizan Pokemon Pose W.jpgpokemonposefigure_w.jpg

As mentioned in my "Wants" post; I've been looking for this fella for years. It was only sold in Japan and is the only official Takara TOMY ARTs Bisharp figure. Funny story is, I'm not looking for him for my collection. I am looking to get him for my best friend's collection. Bisharp is her favorite Pokemon, and she has almost all the available merchandise for Bisharp; plushies, charms, and coins, and she's been sad that TOMY never released a readily available standalone figure for the fans.
I discovered this Pokemon Pose Figure W dual figure candy sets through research, and I wanted to try to find it for her as a surprise...and it turns out this is one of the RAREST TOMY Pokemon figures. My searches have found that some collectors in Live Journal did trade and sell some of the figures in the past, so I am hoping to get lucky and find one for my friend at last.

Why doesn't she go out and find one for herself, you ask? Well...she's tried, but she lacks the resources and finances that I have. Besides, she's like a sister to me, so why wouldn't I want to give her a special gift if I have the chance? Her birthday is in a few months, so I was hoping I could make it a birthday surprise if I could get lucky enough. I would love to buy or trade for one if anyone is willing. I don't have much for trading (will try to post my collection and the ones I am willing to trade as soon as possible), but it will be the best I can offer trade wise.

Questions

2 Questions.
#1 : on the sales permission page it says it was updated on June 6th and that the waiting times were updated. But WHERE are the waiting times? I've been looking for them for ages and can't seem to find where they're posted. Anyone have any clues?

#2 : What is this toy called? Is it a single diorama or multiple pieces?

Mysterious Charizard Merch (and long time no see!)

Hello everyone! I know it has been a very..... very long time since I have posted here. I have been browsing silently every week or so but my student teaching just has me so busy! And lack of money has be quiet on buying at the moment. I did have a question though!

I follow a lot of Japanese/Korean twitter accounts and one has posted images of two mysterious pieces of Charizard merch that I couldn't find info on for the life of me. Of course I cant read their language so I didn't know if they added a source or not but Ill post the pictures they uploaded under the cut!

Ampharos, Denryu

In Seach Of Ampharos:

Well, I said I'd be back soon with a few wants, so here I am. :) There are still a ton of Ampharos I'm missing, but I'm looking for a few specific ones this month.

The petit Ampharos plush

And this moveable Ampharos figure (would like 2 eventually, but one will suffice for now, lol)

For the plush, I would prefer MWT, but will consider all. I'm also interested in the pastel one, but my main concern is the regular one. :)

I'd also like the figure to be in as good of condition as possible, but like the plush, I will consider all conditions.

Shipping will be to the US.

Sorry if I'm borrowing your pic. If I have and you want me to take it down, just let me know! :)

Hey guys! Its been awhile, and ive been slowly building on my Gyarados and Magikarp collection (update picture thread coming soon). TCG-wise, its going well, but now im on the lookout for a specific piece of Gyarados merch. As the title suggests, im looking for more details on the Red Gyarados medal given out to the top contestants during the Gyarados Battle on Aug 22-23, 2015. I believe one was sold on Y!J awhile ago, but i havent seen any pictures or theoretical price ranges for it. If anyone has seen, owns, or knows more about them, all help is appreciated. Thank you guys, again!
