Yeah, I hadn't even realized they exist. I guess I have new Pokemon stuff to hunt for, hmm? [: I'm about to go check eBay for them.

I wonder if the guy who "came up with" Pokemon expected it to make it so far.

As far as I know the marbles only spanned the first gen.

Edit:
I found a shooter for them too.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/POKEMON-BALL-COLLECTOR-MARBLE-SHOOTER-new-in-ORIGINAL-PACKAGE-/321093349038

I'm tempted to buy me some too.

Holy arceus they're expensive. D;
I guess I won't be buying any, unless I manage to find some offline. I find Pokemon stuff in thrift stores (haha at least it's cheap) and quirky little stores that sell old stuff.

People are selling these marbles for $2 each...a Charmander one if $7.50.

I still got my collection of marblres :3
Those were so fun to play with as a kid :D

I also remember a teach actually got them banned from school because he said that it might fall out of our pockets and roll on the stairs and someone might step on them and injure themselves on the stairs >.>

    Can't say I'm suprised something like that would be expensive.

    nib proably.

    Mixed lots would be cheaper. Not mint but still in good condition. I've found a mixed lot, 91 in total, with a starting bid of $10. 4 days till it ends but still.

    Seeing these cool things on eBay really makes me want to run down to the bank and update my card.

    I saw a pack of Pokemon marbles at the flea market a few weeks ago. When I go back I'll check which ones it was. It was very cheap too! 5$ for the whole pack :D

    You're lucky, Jz haha. The ones around here just have weird Pokemon stuff, like pencils, toothbrushes, and candy dispensers.

    I just found a Cubone medal online from Japan for $7. So tempted. D;

    Let me guess - The toothbrushes were (ugh) used too.

    Here's the marble lot I mentioned earlier.

    Haha, ew, no. They were new, I think. I hope they were.

    I was trying to dig up Cubone stuff on eBay, when I realized that I can just do it myself. I'm about to attempt to carve a Cubone skull out of soap (what else am I to do with free time?) I: My knife is going to smell of this soap for ages. At least it's getting clean haha.

      I might, depending on the outcome haha.
      It's turning out pretty well so far. [: Considering I'm using a very sharp knife, though, I need to be careful not to slip and ruin it.

      How often do you guys stumble upon Pokemon stuff offline, by the way?

        Rarely - Well, minus the toys and cards that walmart sells.

        The last item I seen was one of the dex's at a salvation army.

        A friend of mine has a dex. It's really cool, but it gets annoying really fast.

        Uh, no I don't.

        But I did own Pokemon merchandise when I was little, one notable case being a Pikachu plushie. I still have fond memories as he was the first Pokemon I got to know.

        How much Pokemon stuff I find depends on where I am. Places like flea markets and thrift stores generally have it, but normal stores either are too expensive or lack any Pokemon stuff.

        Heck yes. An hour later and my Cubone skull is done. {:
        Now I have a mess of scraps of soap. Microwaving ivory soap looks really cool, maybe I'll microwave it (which also will melt it all together so it can be used).

        I only come across Pokemon related goods either when seeing games sold in stores or when I'm seeing other merchandise in Japan Town in San Francisco.

        You have a Japan Town. I'm kinda jelly because I'd love to see if I can find imports and whatnot. I have 4 already, it'd be cool to get more like a (Super) Famicom and such.

        Ahahahaha omg PG-13 for language (if you know Gordon Ramsay, you'll know why).

        Yeah [: It was worth how long it took. I just hope it doesn't melt haha.

        It turned out quite well. I'm eating at the moment, but I'll grab my camera and post a picture here, if you'd like (after I eat, I mean)?

        That's awesome haha.

        I've seen that pic before. Still funny though.

        Random pic time, I guess. Let see what the funny guy has in his bag today...
