Gets + Completed Project

Hey pkmncollectors! I haven't posted for a while. My plan was to do a collection update, but since I'm still dissatisfied by my displays and I'm frustrated by my lousy camera, I'm just going to talk about a few of my favourite gets and a completed project!


You may or may not remember me as someone who likes to collect trainer items. Well, Kyouhei (Nate) is one of my absolute faves, and I managed to get my hands on some of his very scarce merch.

First, the BW2 quiz book!

I adore the art in this thing. Ah! ♥

Also, the keychain.

I really want to use it, but I want to keep it nice. I know you all understand. Maybe I'll display it in its plastic for a while and then use it some day.

And finally, my perler sprite.

It's based on the game sprite, but I ended up having to adapt it to create my own pattern, because it would've been waaaay too big and I couldn't find anyone else who'd made this sprite. I basically halved it and then fixed the colours. As it is, it's still very large at 21" tall (which I do like, as painful as it was to iron!). Here's a clearfile for size reference.

It's still hard to see the scale, I know. Standing up, it comes to just above my knee. It's only my third perler project and the first of this size, so I'm really happy with it. :) And happy to be finally done it!

Aside from Kyouhei, I also wanted to show my Yveltal plamo. This is the small version, not the poseable one, but I love it so much. I think it's a great figure. It was also the first plamo I ever made! Overall, not difficult, except for the toe stickers. Those were frustrating. I may remove them if they start to peel.

Lastly, my newest get, which I'm still cooing over:

This little guy was one of my biggest wants. I ended up getting him on ebay. He's just the cutest darn thing! I wasn't even paticularly a fan of Swoobat until I saw this MPC. Instant love.

To finish, there's something I've been wanting to ask: Do TFG figures get bootlegged? There's one that I really want on ebay, but the seller's username is listed as a known bootlegger, so I've been holding back. Any advice?

That's all for now. Hopefully I'll come back after the holidays with a full collection update. Happy Holidays, everyone!
