Groudon

Introduction + Collection + Wants List

Hi everyone!
I'm Teppi and I'm a new member of the Pkmncollectors community. I've known about the community for a while but I only decided to register recently.

Some facts about myself:
- My favorite Pokemon is Groudon
- First Pokemon game was Pokemon Ruby
- Favorite Pokemon game is Pokemon Diamond. I spent the most time playing with this version so I have a lot of memories with it. Hence Sinnoh is my favorite region (can't wait for the remake).

I like to collect Pokemon figures for display (I collect mostly Mega Charizard and Legendary figures). I started collecting figures a few years ago but I took a break and only came back lately. Recently I have completed my Mega Charizard and Groudon/Kyogre collection. Now I'm looking to collect some Arceus and Giratina figures. I've created a wants list of some figures that I'm looking for.

This is my wants list: https://teppi2504.livejournal.com/725.html

And here is my collection:



I'm missing the base for the Charizard Y Lottery figure (second one from the right).


The tiny Charizard Y figure is coming this week. I also have a few duplicates in this set since I bought some of them in pairs.




I still have the Moncolle Primal Groudon, Zukan 1/40, and Resin figures coming this month. I'll include them in my next post.



In this set I'm still missing the Moncolle Primal Kyogre and the Kyogre Zukan 1/40 DP05 figure. I saw a Resin Shiny Groudon figure on eBay. I'm not sure if there is a Shiny Kyogre counterpart for it.


As you can see, I like to have symmetry in my collection :D





The Darkrai figure is much larger than the other ones but I think it still looks good in this set. The Dialga and Palkia figures are the shiny versions of the Banpresto DX Soft Vinyl figures. I'm still looking for the normal version of these two.


I'm still debating whether to add the Blastoise Kanto World figure and the Gacha Capsule figure to this set since they are a bit expensive.


In this set I'm still missing some Moncolle Greninja figures.


I really like the symmetry between the Blastoise and the Greninja set.


Thanks for reading through my post! This is my first post on here so please give me any tips or recommendation that you have. I'll post an update once I finish setting up my other bookshelves. I'm also looking for a few Arceus and Giratina figures in my wants list so let me know if you have any of them for sale.

This is a bit late but I'm still looking forward to being a part of this community!

Little Update & Wants

Hey everyone! I've been lurking on and off for the past year trying to stay updated on all the latest releases.  I used to be really active here, but since I started college I've gotten quite busy and had to organize all my collections and put them in storage. But, I decided to make a post about my updated wants I'm looking for! I'm also waiting on being granted sales permission so once I potentially get approved for that I have a LOT of goodies from my stash that I'm looking to downsize :3

I know a lot of these items are kind of ancient, but it's worth a shot if anyone is looking to downsize their items or has spares of items lying around. I'll link my wants post here for anyone to check out!
Cool

A strange request?

Hi all, today I am posting a probably odd request, but I hope someone can point me to the right direction... if such direction even exists!

The one pictured below is one of my grails: a certain box of "Gari Gari rich!" popsicles. From what I gathered, this box was exclusive to popsicles released during the Volcanion/Magiarna movie, so a very limited time window. I sadly discovered their existence too late, they were already gone from stores. Had it featured the regular stock art for Hawlucha I probably wouldn't have minded not having it too much... but the artwork is, from what i know, unique to this box.

I know finding the actual box is probably impossible right now... but I figured I MIGHT have found a surrogate idea: a magazine advertisement!

I'm not sure if this kind of snack is ever advertized on magazines like CoroCoro or Pokémon fan, but I think it's worth trying.

So, my request to you all is this:

does anyone own any Japanese magazines from around MAY-JUNE 2016, and can check if they have any advertisement for these popsicles? If yes, I'll then be able to hunt for the magazine myself, and finally somehow add this image in my collection. Please let me know if you can help! Thank you and happy collecting!
