    Default Pokemon Collecting: One Year Later

    About a year ago, I started to actively collect Pokemon merchandise, and more specifically, Mew and some other favorites. My little collection has grown immensely over this time period, and I thought I would share with you all some of my stuff!




    First we have to look at where I started. Heres the basics. My figures, Mew+FLygon+Lanturn+Drifloon collections, and other plush minus my Piplup pillow and talking Pikachu.










    And now, heres where I stand today. If you want to see these larger, you can just copy the image location and paste it the url to a new window.


    First, Mew collection.


    My Mew plush. My favorite Mew item is my first Pokemon Center Mew plush (of the two big ones in the middle, the left one)





    My favorite figure is the Mew Mountain scene Zukan. Zukan are scale figures of Pokemon, with majority of them being in 1/40th scale. The measurements are based on the ones given in game via the Pokedex. They have a ton of detail for figures that can be so small!





    Here's random Mew stuff! Includes a Pokedoll-style Mew charm, Mew towel, a glasses case, and drawings people have done for me.




    And here are my Mew cards. My goal was to get a card or each artwork, since I don't have the money or the patience to track down all both American and Japanese Mews and various re-releases. At this point, I'm only missing 2! The most expensive and rare ones of course XD My 3 favorites are the CoroCoro SHining Mew, Mew *, and the Tree of Beginnings Mew. Sadly my scratched up card protectors do them little justice. Very pretty cards.




    Moving on to Drifloons!



    Amusingly enough, when 4th gen first came out I thought Drifloon was pretty dumb. That didn;t last long.



    Heres my very small Lanturn collection



    The second shot is a closer look at my Lanturn Zukan. This set also comes with a Relicanth, and isnt on its proper base/pegs. But it was cheaper like this, and I only cared about Lanturn itself anwyay! I wish Lanturn had more merchandise :P



    Time for some 3rd Gen love



    Hasbro Flygon plush, you are so derpy looking. Flygon merchandise is pretty expensive, so Im missing a bunch of cool things.




    While taking these pictures I realized I ended up having bigger collections of some of my other favorite Pokemon than my Lanturn collection, without ever intentionally collecting them. Fail.





    The posable Bayleef plush was a massive want of mine, and is my second favorite plush overall. Look what he did! Now I want to collect Bayleefs XD Dragonite snuck up on me apparently, and Bulbasaur has always been a huge favorite of mine, but I decided not to collect him due to so much merch, and huge amounts of derpness. One day when my 4 mains start to slow down, which doesn't seem so far away now, I'll get to him.




    Heres most of the rest of my TOMYs/Kids/Jakks/random stuff chilling on my shelves and cabinet thing. And of course, my first Red team in TOMY form plus my other zukan.








    And finally, my Pokedolls, Canvas plush, and other Pokemon Plush. Say hello to factory reject Turtwig and Piplup XD








    I purchased most of this stuff from the Pokemon collecting LJ community, http://community.livejournal.com/pkmncollectors/profile or from eBay. Since I live on Long Island, a ton of my old TOMYs and my Pokedolls came from Nintendo World in NYC.


    Subtracting out the money I made off of selling Pokemon items, my total amount spent on my collections this past year (Dec 2009-Jan 2011) is between $150-$200.

    Christ in a friggin' crutch! That's a ton of collectibles.

    All I can say is that you're a true Pokémaniac. My hats off to you, Dazzling Mew.

    Edit: I also forgot, where did you get the money to get all this?!

    @Brumrha: Funding for it all comes from Pokemon stuff I sell! ex) Buying and reselling on eBay. I also keep close track of everything I buy/sell so I know what I can afford, and once I finish selling off a few more things next week, my net spent will be around $150-$200. So around $20 a month.

    @alishenai: I have two shelves for them, and a plush pile in the corner of my room. Everything was just all over the place for the pictures :P

    WOW thats a lot of pokemon collectibles (about 50% are Mew).
    I'm afraid I'm going to have to stop trading for a while due to school. Any trades that were started will be finished up.

    That is an amazing collection of stuff that you've got there! I've actually been collecting some Pokemon merchandise too, though I'm going for variety. I've loved those little TOMY Pokemon figures since I was a kid, and I recently purchased some online. I got the old Pokemon figures first and I've been working my way up to the more recent TOMY figures. I have about 50 of those now, compared to just 10 that I had about 5 months ago. I'm hoping to get at least 50 more, before I move on to collecting plush figures of my favorite Pokemon.

    Wow.. That's so cool!

    I wish I had money to spend like that.. It must feel really cool having all that stuff.
    I used to have a handful of Pokemon toys and dolls, but nowhere near as much as you! I have like. A Totodile and a Pikachu now. @___@
    But anyways, really nice!

    O.O holy crap, I have never seen that much stuff before, I could not get that much Pokemon stuff in Australia or find them, only maybe a few plushies and cards/games/DVDs but that's about it

    That is one mahoosive collection, not just massive; mahoosive. I have the first four movies and then 10 incomplete sets of TCG cards - Basic, Jungle, Fossil, Rocket, Gym Heroes, Gym Challenge, Neo Genesis, Neo Discovery, Neo Revelations and Neo Destiny. Some of them are agonisingly close to completion, others; not so much.

    Dang... How did you amass so many... And in one year two!? I particulary liked the giant bayleaf plush. Did you get that off Amazon? Of course I have a good size buneary plush but a giant one or better yet a giant Lopunny one would make a great sex toy... A giant Gardevoir Plush would also work...

    Jess is still alive? Welcome back! Nice collection... it's larger than most people I know. Any plans of stopping, or are you still collecting? And do you have all the US event Mews that came out post-4th gen, including Ranch Mew? Which ones have you gotten on your own?
