Collection Update: Part 1

Lotsa stuff I picked up in the past few months! I'll need to cut this into two parts, because last time I maxed out my pics I could upload >_> Keeping it under 100 this time, but lots to browse through!

01.jpg
DLC codes that I've been kinda collecting.

Found this Auldey Tomy at Half-Oruce still sealed! Never got one, so figured I should pick up a Lapras finally.

Continuing my pins and Legendary Pins collection.


01.jpg01.jpg02.jpg01.jpg
Mewtwo sculpt is amazing, but to be expected from GSC!


01.jpg02.jpg
More pins and lanyard.


01.jpg02.jpg
Since sites like PokeShopper stopped updating, I didn't even know that this was announced until the very last minute :x


01.jpg01.jpg02.jpg
Target pickups


01.jpg
The one blister I never did pickup, and regretted it because it was apparently a Target exclusive with NONE available online, period. So, bought the pin separately on eBay...


20.jpg21.jpg
These were exclusive to Gamestop employees by doing training sessions, and to customers on a few stores that held events. I think these were the only 2 pins for it made though, anyone know? They were off eBay and I never saw any others.


20.jpg21.jpg
Regret not getting it last year on clearance, since the value stayed steady. Waited for an eBay coupon and cheaper price to get it.


20.jpg
Another DLC code card.


20.jpg21.jpg
More pins n lanyard.


20.jpg
Pikachu and Eevee swapped skins :p


20.jpg
Another DLC card.


20.jpg
The promo card from the Target exclusive blister I regret not getting.


20.jpg21.jpg20.jpg
UltraPro Snorlax binder. I love the quality of these!


20.jpg21.jpg
Was missing this and a 3rd party seller on Amazon had some cheap liquidated ones.



Single packs from Target.



These were all starting to get pricey/harder to find, so I just got them off PokeCen since they were still all there.




Binder order on PokeCen.



Another BaB plush I didn't even know was already out >_>



The last DLC card of 2018! After doing mythological Pokemon and then the next year with legendaries, I wonder if they will keep using this card format?



I impulse bought this on release at Gamestop. Was on sale and had a coupon... then found out the two don't stack -_- Oh well, win some, lose some :/



Ok THIS TIME I made sure to pick up the Target exclusive box right away! Still need to get the actual one, but I'm waiting on it.



Always nice when I find Gamestop selling pins I never got^^ Used a coupon on these too.



Pokemon Fit!!! Err Sitting Cuties!!! Are they ever cute and soft!!! Time to finally get more niche ones that barely ever got plush (or at least, good looking ones :p) The Sandsrew I'm having second thoughts on... Not a big fan of the plush like I had thought...



I at least made sure to buy this one right away, and yet it went back in stock too (unlike the birthday card...)

Upgraded my switch for the Let's Go version :)



My Let's Go Pikachu budnle came in, but had to wait on my Eevee bundle to arrive. (Also had to exchange it because it was damaged upon shipment...)



More pin/lanyards from PokeCen



Finally my Eevee shows up! Still haven't had a chance to start it up yet >_>



Stray pin from my last PokeCen order that shipped separately.



Double-sided Let's Go poster from Gamestop.



My Let's Go guide (and reportedly the last Pokemon that will ever be released?)



Megahouse GEM Satoshi and Pikas! Packaging is... interesting (and small for a GEM :p) but not many other ways of doing it for the figure's shape.



After finding copies that either way too damaged or too expensive in game stores, I finally found one (and with another coupon!) on eBay that was excellent. Too bad the box is to thick to fit in one of those Game Boy plastic protective cases :/



Same thing that I've done the past couple years, and just buying the McDonald sets as a complete lot. Used a coupon on this too, but it sure beats going in person and hoping to get the right cards! Not a fan of the toys...



Aaaand that wraps up part 1! Part 2 will feature Black Friday and Beyond :p See ya then and hope you enjoyed looking!!!!

Awesome collection update!

The Sitting Cuties section caught my attention. I'm new to collecting, and I really want the Pokemon Fit plushies...but not sure how much of a difference there is between the Sitting Cuties and Pokemon Fit. I know they're supposed to be the same, but I've noticed from other (albeit older) LJ posts that there can be a difference in plush quality (and not just the tags themselves) in which the Japanese version tends to look better.

Sitting Cuties are better for my wallet, but I'm willing to shell out more for Pokemon Fit if the quality is better.

Sandshrew didn't look amazing to me online, but I wonder if the Pokemon Fit version would have looked nicer? If someone has one of each version of the same poke to compare, that'd be helpful!
Most people will say that any Japanese vs. American-made plush slightly differ in style. I've seen a lot of photo comparisons through different lines of plush, and often the differences are pretty minimal, and 9/10 I feel like you often can't tell unless you either own both versions of the plush, or have a really good eye when seeing them in person.

I feel like Sandshrew it probably about the same in its Fit version. Looked up pics to compare to mine, and it seems about the same. I think I'm mostly not a fan of the fabric used for it, made it kinda frumpy or something? I dunno. I love my PokeCen Alolan Sandshrew plush I got a while back though! But yeah, unless it's a specific line I collect the Japanese tags for (Poncho Pikachu/Eevees, because those tags are amazing and consistent!) I usually just go for the cheaper, localized version on the site.
