buyfag thread?

I went past a Build A Bear while shopping for a new coat and I couldn't see Pikachus through the window, just shitloads of Star Wars stuff.
Pikachu is not one of the pokemon I buy stuff of though because I just don't rate it very high on my list. You did remind me I should get a Pokemon Time Raichu, though.

also the last item I bought was the 2015 New Years sleeping Chespin plush which was like $70bux usd but it's also way bigger than that Porygon at 23 inches long. I've spent way more on custom made stuff, though.

I might get one anyway, they look fine to me

Build a bear, But they build em too fat. It's good for the smaller bears because them it puffs em out more, but they scaled up pikachu by like 10% size so it's a tight fit. That took a lot of squishing to get him in.

Maybe anon thinks they're fake because they're not POKEMON CENTER, idk.

Banpreto UFO plushes aren't anything new and these are all too identical (and have tags) to be fake imo.

Okay, bit the bullet and bought Porygon-Z.

What's the most you fags have spent on PokeMerch
>>
>>24927109
If you're talking about single item, that Jedi Pikachu I posted set me back about 50 dollars.

Can't think of anything more expensive than that. Unless you count 3ds, DS, GBASP, since those were solely bought to play pokemon. Everything else has been moderate or cheap, I just buy a ton of it.

I also got the Mega Blastoise family Tomy figure pack, but the Japanese version before Megas were released in America. Did that cuz I was at the Con already anyways, and it was same priced online. That was 45 dollars.
>>
>>24927109

I probably have most of you fags beat.

Well the biggest thing was when he posted it, it ended up looking like shit upon arrival (messed up proportions and such). He was cool about it and we didn't give him toooo much shit, but still it was a but embarassing. The biggest point was it cost a lot of money (several hundreds) and still looking shitty. Hence keks.

The most expensive thing I've bought is the Pokémon time growlithe for $75. I've spent about $360 on my plushes, not counting the 3 MH ones.

Thanks. I try to avoid buying bootlegs because they usually look awful, but I would buy one of those 12 inch Chinese plushes if they made a noivern.

I always go into those new bootleg chinese/korean stores that are popping up at malls thinking "If a bootleg is really good, maybe I'll buy it."

Nope, there's always one or many things wrong, or the stitching is way asymmetric, or it's just odd proportions. And the prices aren't -that- good for bootlegs anyways.

Also, no pictures allowed

It's absolutely inane that they limit 99% of their pokemon to aftermarket mark up and bootlegs. They are sitting on a goldmine of almost 800 creatures, and someone out there would buy any one of them. And yet they only make merchandise for a dozen of them. They wouldnt even have to stock it anywhere, put an extra bunch of them in a warehouse and wait for it to get sold, every year or two remake the ones that are sold out.

But nope, here's another hundred Pikachu plushies. and a fucking lucario/greninja
>>
>>24935169
it makes sense from a business aspect: why create plushes for every Pokemon and risk them shelf warming? make plushes of the most popular and you're guaranteed to have a constant seller

looking at the current selection at the Pokemon Center, I think maybe Trainer sized Goomy, Secret Base Clefairy, Lapras, Pikachu, Treecko, Mudkip, Pokedoll Meowstics, Litleo, Inkay, Amaura, Helioptile and Bunnelby have a chance of skyrocketing in price in the future; also the Kuttari Eeveelotions since for some damn reason there's so much affinity for them

>>24935285
Why don't they make more of the old ones that sell for big bucks? Imagine how many shiny Magikarps they could sell.

Why don't you just tell your father you bought something else? I haven't used Paypal in over a year, but from what I remember it doesn't say what you bought. Honestly, I can't blame your dad for being annoyed that you buy toys with his money though.

And you probably should consider getting your own paypal/bank account. Hell, even Chris-chan had one.

that's how it's meant to be used. don't take out a credit card via Paypal as their APR is ludicrous, just link it to your checking account (if you don't already have one, find a credit union and open an account with them) and the funds of what you purchase will automatically be deducted from your primary account which would, in your case, be the checking account

you can link multiple checking/credit accounts to your Paypal too

Indeed, it's an improvement, but really hit and miss still. Like, some pokemon aren't even close to the right proportions, but I kinda liked the magikarp that was completely round in shape.

I'd rather just buy neither at that rate, there's only a few I'd buy for myself as decoration, and I'd only buy my girl official stuff, but she'll settle for one mew as opposed to a dozen knockoffs of cute-but-not-her-favorite-anyways.

My main weakness is the 2inch Tomy figures, and all knock offs of those sre horrendous. Pic related
