Cleaning issues :P


I'm facing quite a dilemma this time and I was hoping to get some help here.

The thing is I got this unpacked Joy&Brock Tomy figures set, which I was really happy to get for a decent price, but it seems some mold has started spreading through the box.
Though the figures are still untouched, it's probably a matter of time (even if it takes years) when the mold will reach them as well.
I've read a couple of articles regarding the mold-on-pvc problem and they say to use vinegar and/or bleach. I thought it was quite a simple solution, until I found out the inner 'fixating' piece has some mold spots too.

What would you recommend me to do in such a situation?

I see several options as for now, which are:

- Leave it alone and hope the things don't get worse;
- Open the box, clean the spots with vinegar or bleach and reseal the package in sake of Joy [any recommendations on opening the box with minimum of damage to the backcard, so that it can be resealed with no significant flaws, are welcome];
- Get rid of the box, until it's too late;
- Wait some more for a better solution.

Well, generally the question is 'to open' or 'not to open' as for now~

The Ultimate Grail I didn’t know I had

So a couple weeks ago I was browsing mericari and found something spectacular. I placed my order and waited with much anxiety as I watched The Invisible Man in theaters... which was giving me enough anxiety. After waiting a bit to decide to ship or not worried that with COVID19 I’d have issues importing, I decided to go with EMS and see what happened.

Well, 3 days after shipping... it arrived!!!!

Surely my “grail” isn’t an Entei Tomy figure? You know, the one I have 5 of because I find slight differences in each? (And now that I own all his official figures want even more Tomy’s >.>)

Well no! It’s not!!! Why don’t you peek under the cut for what it is!!!

Thank you for reading my post! Stay safe and healthy out there!

PKM centre playset with trainer figures –

Hi all, just wanted to show off this cute little playset and figures!

This playset has a PKM centre on one side and a little area with a seesaw on the other. It’s really detailed and even has tiny stickers on the computer screens. The playset also closes up into a little case (Which is then impossible to open again without hurting your fingers lol) like those old Polly Pocket playsets. I remember seeing those kinds of Polly Pockets as a kid, but I don’t remember these Pokémon ones at all but since finding them as an adult collector I thought they were so cool.

The little trainer figures didn’t originally come with this specific playset but are from the same series/line of toys. I think there really sweet little figures even if Ash and Brock are oddly angry looking for this location lol.

Since I focus my collecting on human characters and stuff from the anime, I really like how the sets are all based on the anime and movies, but this is the only one I have at the moment.

I’ve seen a few people collecting them on here so what are your favourites?

Thanks for reading, till next time~
