I will pay $100 for an OFFICIAL Growlithe Pokémon plushie.
I am an avid Growlithe/Arcanine collector, and a Growlithe plushie is something I've wanted for literally a decade. I have NEVER seen pictures anywhere of one, but I have at least two detailed eyewitness accounts from others who have seen it. This is my 'holy grail' of collecting.
From the descriptions I've been given, it is most likely Japanese in origin, with a largeish rectangular tag, is larger than a Hasbro beanie, and is light orange in color. I also think I was told it had a 2000 copyright date, but I'm not 100% on that.
If you sell me one, I can pay you $100 from my Paypal balance immediately. Pics required before I buy, of course.
Alternately, if you don't have the plush, but have a photo of one, I will make you some free artwork just for emailing the photo to me. It's not something you can just type into eBay and find... trust me, I search eBay and Yahoo!Japan auctions daily.
What I am NOT looking for:
-An Arcanine plushie (already have one!)
-A custom/fan-made plush Growlithe
Documented Growlithe plushie sightings (please do comment with your own sightings!):
-A secondhand store in the UK
-An American elementary school
Various alternate names for Growlithe for search purposes:
-Flamie (beta test)
-growlith (common mispelling)
