The box Bulbasaur came in was labeled and numbered on the outside, something I've never seen when ordering from pokemoncenter.com. Mine was #4 out of 700, I'd love to know what your number was if you ordered one! Did anyone here get #1? I posted about the stock here before I ordered, so I missed out on the "top 3" lol.
So, you're probably wondering how they compare to the Japanese releases..... Was it worth the extra cost to import them? Would've you been better off waiting for the US releases?.....let's find out!
Detailed pics / size comparisons are under the cut!
First let's take a look at the tags. Before you ask why there's a choking hazard warning for a large plush, its because of the actual tags themselves. It's stupid, yes, just like the "do not drink" warning on paint, or "danger hot" warning on coffee. Just try not to eat the tags, ok?
Size comparison with the Tomy trainer's choice boxed plush.
With Tomy moncolle figures. They look so tiny in comparison! lol
Side view with the standard size pokecen plush. I put off ordering Bulbasaur, and he ended up selling out. =( The Petit keychain will have to do!
Bulbasaur DOES have the stitching across the face, after all! (couldnt tell from the stock photo)
Base set TCG. Not as epic as the shadowless cards, but still... greatness from small beginnings!
With shadowless Base set holo TCG. This extremely rare version of Charizard was the holy grail of every Pokemon collector during gen 1. One touch and you instantly become a Pokemon Master! Check the ebay prices if you dont believe me! (unless you want one, then only pain will you find, lead to the dark side, it will)
Charmander and Squirtle have the breath of the wild! No Kokiri tunic required! They've been Zelda fans since like '98. lol OoT = <3 Bulbasaur could hold the sword with his vines, but he doesn't want to. =p
Since I'm already posting, I'll share the rest of my 1:1 Pokemon plush collection!
Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Chikorita <3, Togepi, Marill, Celebi, Mew, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Piplup.
I actually have a few other Pokemon items arriving today, like HG + the pokewalker, but I'll save them for another gets post. (which will hopefully include the Cresselia pokedoll I'm bidding on)
Thank you for looking, and have a great day/night!
