So Pokemon Merch! YAY another thread this time by annoying thread maker todoroki is! YAY! Sarcasm aside lets cut to the chase. What do you own? Not just simple merch but the good stuff the special stuff. I own those Pokemon cards made from silver painted gold. Some pics from the net for the people who are too young to know of them.

Ah, the good old days with those Golden cards. Anyway, the only things I had were a Charizard,a Poliwrath, and a Togepi Golden Card, since I wasn't a fan of Pokemon "merchandise", so to speak.

Oh wow I remember those gold cards things, no clue where mine are. Anyways I had this pokeball like thing that shot out these pokemon marbles out of it. Again I would have no clue where that is.

I too remember having one golden car with a mew on it I think, I don't know where that one ended up xD Probably the most memorable Pokémon merchandise I've had was a large Togepi and Jigglypuff figure. I still have them, it's just put away with the rest of my unused posessions. xD

If you mean the Golden Card it is just a solid, plastic card with an engraved Pokémon on it. Actually in the States, Burger King used to sell them in Kids Meals for like $1.00 each. They came out a while back, but now people keep it for collection.

Since this deals with all Pokémon Merchandise, I would say that owning the games and cards would count to wouldn't it?

I also have a Pokémon Pouch where I keep all my Games and DS. xD

I have a Charmander doll, a Blastoise doll, a toy Pokedex, and a plastic talking Chansey. o.o
I also have this Mew doll that my mom threatened to take back to the store if I didn't pull out one of my loose teeth, now my teeth are crooked. Stupid doll.

I used to have a bunch of figurines and stuff but I don't know where they all went. :/

I have a zubat, vulpix, and seal plushy and those gold cards. They used to be neat when I was little, now I really don't care. They are probably up in the attic in my parents' house.

Yes, infact, they are all different. I have I think 210 and like 10 ior 11 are doubles. However, I just ordered 10 more pokmon. I bought them in lots. 10 of some of my favorite pokemon weren't in there, so I decided to get them, just for fun. btw, I had about 50 figures growing up, over years of losing them and them being thrown out, I wound up with ten. I saw these lots of 100 of them on ebay for loike $72 each(USD) I decided to get them like a year ago for old times sake, and I wanted them b/c I started to like pokemon again. So imagine one day you have ten pokemon figures that you're tired of playing with, or seeing, or whatever you're into, and the next day you come home from school, find a package at your front door, and now you hav e 210 pokemon figures. Pretty sweet huh?

That is pretty neat, glad to see your merchandice is even larger than before. I think a lot of mines were given away after I went through some of my things I didn't really want/use anymore.

They made six cards? Huh, I only saw four from the commercials.

Or is that your total?

fffffff oh man is this my kind of thread or not. I love collecting Pokemon merch. I mainly concentrate on my favourites, so Cherrim, Pichu, Probopass, and smaller collections of Bidoof, Palkia, Jigglypuff, etc. I collect mainly figures because plush get pretty expensive and take up a lot of room that I don't always have. I'll finish up taking recent pictures when I get home and post them up here but for now, have a REALLY OLD collection photo:

http://www.pokecommunity.com/picture.php?albumid=226&pictureid=1230

This was taken over a year ago and I think my collection has doubled in size since then. @_@;; I've got a bunch more Pichu plush (and most of the plush on the dresser there have been delegated to a separate shelf and my couch since there's no room), my figure collection has grown exponentially, and I've just got a lot more stuff in general. XD

Oh, I do have SOME recent pictures, at least! They're of my zukan collection which is a set of figures that are 1/40th in scale. I didn't get the appeal at first but once I got more than one, I was addicted. It's so neat being able to see *exactly* how big a Pokémon is compared to another. I'm gonna share them because they're so cool and everyone should get into collecting them, lmao. *dork*

http://lighty.shouki.com/zukan/zukanpeenderp.jpg
Here's Palkia (so big it doesn't even have a base XD), Plusle & Minun, and Bidoof & Bibarel. I like Bidoof so much that I bought a second set of it because it wasn't too pricey. Derp.

http://lighty.shouki.com/zukan/zukannoseswoooop.jpg
Here's my Nosepass/Probopass zukan along side Wooper and Quagsire. Probopass is huge too. Not as big as Palkia but it's still ridiculous in size. I have 1/1 Pichu plush (so the plush is exactly how big a Pichu would be IRL) and if you compare the size of my Pichu zukan to Probopass it's just... man Probopass would end up taller than me and so daunting. XDD

http://lighty.shouki.com/zukan/zukanfossiltangs.jpg
Kabuto/Kabutops! sdlkf I love the zukan with interesting bases like this. It's the reason I bought the Plusle/Minun one so I was really excited when I managed to snag this one which has an interesting base and one of my favourite sets of Pokémon. ♥ Not a huge fan of the Tangela line but it was $1 so I couldn't pass it up. XD

http://lighty.shouki.com/zukan/zukaneonpuff.jpg
My Gen 4 Eevees and the Puffs. ♥ Eevee is much smaller than I thought it was and the Glaceon and Leafeon figures are so pretty. *_*

And last but not least, my favourite:
http://lighty.shouki.com/zukan/zukanchu.jpg
CHUUUUUUUU. Haha this thing is so small and when I bought it, I was all "oh god why did I spend $20 on something so small" since it was my first zukan and I never actually realized quite how little they were. I think it goes for a lot more now since everyone realized it was rare and it's in high demand but regardless, I just adore this. Raichu is huge compared to Pichu. XD

I've also got Pachirisu and Farfetch'd but I forgot to photograph them because I don't really like either. Also, I've got another Wooper line zukan as well as a Wailmer at Aegis's house and he's bringing it up to me in a few weeks. ♥

I've been meaning to do a whole collection post at the livejournal community for Pokémon Collectors so I'll finish up with the pictures I was taking the other day and make a blog post with 'em or something if anyone's interested. :p

Lightning I saw you have a neat collection. That is probably more than I see at a Pokémon event xD I've got to say your set up with everything is really nice. You kind of make me want to go back into collecting all of it. rofl!

Conan Edogawa
May 7th, 2009, 02:57 PM
Yeah that collection is enormous. At one point I had a ridiculous amount of cards that was probably worth around $1000 with all the rare ones but I lost it. Other than that I've had a few figures and that's it.

Lightning you are amazing. Any chance the notch ear Pichu will grace your set soon?

Artemis
May 7th, 2009, 03:08 PM
There's only one question I have on your first picture Lightning...

Is that Nemo in the right corner of the desk, because if it is a Pokémon, I just do not seem to recognize it? xD

Way ahead of ya. ;3

It's hard to tell in this picture since the ears are kinda floppy on both of them but they're both Gizamimi Pichu~ The large one is... very large. @_@;; Roughly 30cm. (45ish with the ears. XD)

...yes. XD; There's also a Donald in there.

On the larger one it is hard to tell it is a Gizamimi Pichu, but the little one I can tell. I'll have to find the Donald though...xD

You got that right. :cer_nod: :cer_eek: :cer_disbelief: :cer_laugh: But they look so cute!! You have an awesome collection, Lightning! All I have lying around here are Mew, Electabuzz, and Togepi keychains. We also have a Pikachu that can fold itself inside-out to become a Poke Ball, and vice versa. :t172: :t025: :t026:

I used to have about 500 cards, some of them very rare, and a gold plated Charizard card. But (silly me) in elementary school, I gave the charizard to my friend, not knowing how much it was worth, and by the time I had found out and asked her if we could sell it, she had moved houses and the card was lost.
Plus I've been giving the cards to kindergardeners at my school, and they seem really happy about it.
