A lot has happened while you have been away from the dashboard this last week! :) First, I have been finding all kinds of cool stuff all around town. My local bookstore has gotten in Corocoro comics and 'zines. I've enclosed a picture of Corocoro Ichiban with the Pokemon pen case with sliding Pikachu puzzle
SPOILER WARNING! Why does our Piplup primin' protagonist have a poinsettia on his pate? LOL! Check out the pic of Corocoro Dragon Comics Pokemon D&P issue #4! Shaymin debuts! You'll just have to wait until Viz catches up, as issue #2 is just over the horizon... so...
Also, Hot Topic has gotten in a few new shirts, check out the Pikachu ladies tank ($19) and the Sleeping Pikachu T ($24).
KB Toys is having a big sidewalk sale--and NEW Pokemon 3 figure packs and throw Pokeballs were out! I do not have pix of those, and I did NOT spot new beanies, yet, but, I found a link on e-Bay so you can see the new beanies:
WOW! (make sure you scroll down and also click the 2nd page) Target and Wal-mart have not reset their shelves yet in my area, but, are having sales to clear the old stock. I will keep my eyes open for news! The few new throw Pokeballs and 3 figure packs at KB had Darkrai as the new logo on the packs. I saw a Happiny and a Chingling throw ball in the mix, and lots of others. Of note, I also enclosed a pic of the Pokemon D&P lunch kit I found at KB, $10.99.
And now, I do have pictures--of Origins 2008! First off, there was a bit of confusion about the $3 "Fair Only" pass. I usually purchase my admission a day or so BEFORE the event, on-site, to beat the morning lines on the Saturday I usually go. However, after walking about an hour from my faraway campus parking spot in 90F heat/humidity, I arrived on Friday to discover that they were *not* selling the Fair Only pass until the *day of*. This was not noted on the website and apparently I was not the only unhappily surprised patron. Nonetheless, things did pan out OK the next day, as I have a bunch of photos from the event. PUSA gave out a nice Shellos Origins promo
and other cool swag like posters, pencils, stickers, notebooks, etc.
Brian, a very nice demonstrator with PUSA, played a TFG round with me and told me he, too, collects all sorts of Pokemon items. Thanks, Brian!
Anime Palace was running low on Pokemon plush, as many players scooped up what they could--but, I cheated, as I had found my Phione plush before the con from their local shop. I found the "Pokeball" Ultra Pro Deck Vault at Collector's Cache for $7--the owner and his wife waved hello to Pojo and said, "Isn't Pojo a great guy?" :) You'll find their ad on Pojo's site... What more can I say, let the pictures do the talking. Pikachu and me, I hope Buneary isn't too jealous?! ;)
