intro and a bit of my collection :D

Hello! I am new to the community, so I thought I'd introduce myself and share some of my collection because I feel like I have a few unique pieces to share. :D And I want to get to know you guys better. I've been on LJ for ages but never knew about this comm, I found it through the Pokemon Reddit. Anyway, I'm 23 and a lifelong casual collector of a variety of Poke-stuff. I lived in Japan for a while and I collected Pokemon stuff from the moment it landed, so I have a lot of random really ancient stuff (I still have the Toys R Us Pokemon promo VHS that came to my house in the mail! It had one episode of the show (the one with the fake gym run by the vigorous sandshrew trainer) and some weird commercials for the game, cards, and etc.

This isn't my total collection, just what I have pics of. A lot of it is at my parent's house, which is very far away. n_n

This is one of my collection items I'm pretty pleased with--a set of Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu that I won in a UFO machine when I lived it Japan! :D Sorry they're so small in the pic, I'll have to get a better shot at some point.

Here's me on the day I won it:

As you can tell by the cracked out look in my eyes, I was pretty psyched.

Here's a big general shot of my old school collection. As you can see, I used to save the wrappers/boxes for stuff too. XD

There's lots to look at here! Check out the KFC Pokemon beanie babies... I can't tell you how often I dragged my mother to KFC trying to get them all. I collected the comics, the cards, the games, and I subscribed to Beckett's Pokemon Collector magazine (lolz). I went to every movie premiere (until I grew out of the TV show) so I have a lot of random promo junk and I also participated in Pokemon League (you can probably see my binder of league stuff in the shot).

This is a detail shot of some of the figures I have. They're all randomly collected (mostly from Capsule toy machines in Japan and Chupa Chup toys--I have a much larger collection of Chupa Chup toys I'll have to share at some point).

I was a pretty early Pokemon adopter, and I was frustrated when I was younger at the lack of merchandise (my favorite as a child was pikachu, hehe). So, I made a lot of toys for myself. XD The Pokeball is felt on an easter egg! lol

I wanted to share this too, I got a box of these at a festival in Japan! It was fun eating the tasty little pikachu bodies XD

Anyway, that's some of my collection. Hope you enjoyed. :D Nice to meet you!
