In which I like my Pokemon ghostly and my Gengar carpety. I had a genuinely depressing run on Toreba for a month or two recently; things that seemed like sure wins never turned out to be, and I wasn’t super thrilled with a perceived difficulty spike in machines for high demand plush. (I’m not doing […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Pokemon Gengar Kutsurogi Time Plush
In which I might be the laziest blogger ever, but hey! I bring corn! I really will try to be better about writing, but I’m back today, with new Sumikko Gurashi content no less (and more on the way). And I’m extra stoked about today’s goods, because they’re from the collection I’m going to translate […]Read More Sumikko Gurashi: A Whole Plateful of Corn Plush
In which we take a Pokemon-filled trip into shallow but pleasant waters. I was excited to see this Re-ment set from the moment its preorder was announced; after all, I haven’t been shy about how much I love water features in figures and some of the Pokemon featured here in general. And it turns out […]Read More Pokemon: Re-ment Pokemon World Sparkling Sea
In which I’m developing a serious addiction to these things, god help me, but we all know I’m weak to water. It’s just a pattern now — I see Pokemon terrarium collections from Re-ment, I justify adding them to my cart to “make the shipping worth it,” I repeat. The repetition is soothing my jangled […]Read More Pokemon: Re-ment Terrarium Collection Five
In which I turn 42,502,302,481 years old, finally pick a number one favorite Pokemon design, and feel like celebrating. Oh, and there’s Pokemon merch too, of course. It’s my birthday! It’s always a bit of a pain in my neck, being so close to other holidays and during the exhausting New Year’s preparations, but this […]Read More Happy Birthday to Me – Let’s Celebrate with Four Galar Meowth!
In which I’ve got no complaints at all about these two sweet and extra soft friends. Hoo boy, my little “I’ll take a few days off the blog for the holidays” thing really got a bit out of control, there! As part of my New Year’s Resolutions, I’ll be trying to go back to daily […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Two Exceptionally Soft New Pokemon Plush (Snorlax, Pikachu)
In which they’re no Ghost Types, but they’re pretty awesome as they are. Remember last month or so when I got this Ghost Type Pokemon figure from MegaHouse and absolutely fell in love with it? That thing has a place of honor in our living room, where light from a high window hits it just […]Read More Pokemon: Megahouse GEM Figure: Type:Electric Electric Power!
In which I add three new friends of varying quailty to my little hoard. I’ve had quite a lot of luck on Toreba lately — or maybe it’s not so much luck as me observing more (when I work, I tend to leave Toreba open to watch plays out of the corner of my eye, […]Read More The Get List: Toreba: Three New Pokemon Plush (Larvitar, Teddiursa, Chicorita)
In which redecorating means pulling out sets from the last couple of years, including this mostly great collection. I don’t own a huge amount of Re-ment related to Rilakkuma, but what I do buy tends to have a particularly distinct look. That’s most certainly the case with this collection called Re-ment: Rilakkuma Yumemiru Hoshi no […]Read More San-x: Re-Ment Rilakkuma Yumemiru Hoshi no Starrium
In which I finally start digging into older stuff to organize The Mooon and rediscover a milestone set. It seems like any plans I make don’t work out the way I expected them to, yet they still work out, just in a form I didn’t anticipate. One of the original goals of this blog was […]Read More Sanrio: Re-Ment Cookie Mascot (2009, Partial Set)
