I decided to sell him until…I felt he was worth way more than I’d be able to sell him for and realised I was actually just too attached to him! XD.
I guess Pokemon always make me sentimental, it reminds me of that episode where Ash regrets trading Butterfree or where the big Bulbasaur was abandoned in the sewers. So yeah, I still have him and tbh I’m starting to find his face cute now! :)
As for the Ash plush, at first I thought he was a super good custom because he had no tag, but luckily I found an old post on the comm about him (post here https://pkmncollectors.livejournal.com/19544663.html) and discovered he was also Play By Play. I also found out my poor Ash is missing his jacket and that there are two other size versions, including a jumbo size! (which I now want too)
Has anyone else had something similar happen? Has it ever kickstarted a new side or even main collection? :D
