So after almost 2 weeks of purchasing it, the rare collectible I've been searching for, for about 6-7 years has finally arrived. :D :heart:

I'm so excited I got this guy; sure it was a little pricey but this is rarely seen up for sale so I'm glad I got it when I did. I know how rare this

plush is and being that there has never been a re-release of this plush or any official authentic plush, it makes it worth it even more. I can't

explain how psyched I am to have this in my collection. It's truly now the holy grail of my collection. [so far] :D :D :heart: :heart:

He is just soooo cute and soft. The details are so well done and he is a really good size; almost 1ft tall. Definitely can see why it's so hard to find

after all these years. 

***Don't ask if he is for sale because that is 100% not happening.***

For more pics and details, go to my LJ post. ;) pkmncollectors.livejournal.com…

yo how much would it cost and where would it be the best place to find it since i will be checking ebay everyday for it

eBay is your best shot. This thing is rarely put on sale from my experience and when I say that I mean it. I've only seen it with my own eyes on eBay listed maybe 4 to 5 times in a span of probably 10 to 11 years. I'm not sure if it has been more, because people could have bought it before I could even notice it's up for sale or listed on eBay, but long story short is that when it's up on eBay for sale, just consider that your last possible chance to get it. You never know if that could be the last chance at getting it.

In terms of price, it depends on the condition and how long it has been since the plush was released. I could be wrong if it were to happen again, but I would definitely expect you to pay triple digits for this guy, meaning a minimum of probably $120 or more.

So, make sure you keep an eye out for it as much as you can; in fact, I will try to keep an eye out for you if I can find one, otherwise, best of luck at finding it and I really hope you do. It's an amazing plush to own. 😄😄

Also side note, I apologize if this was a little too long. LOL 😅

AW man that's awesome! I wish that I had one! My holy grails of my collection is my Mismagius pokedoll, my 2011 Takara Tomy Entei doll and my 2009 Tomy Lugia plush. They aren't as cool as yours but they are pretty cool!XD I wish I could get my holy grail...(Giant Lugia, or any other of the NYC giant plushes)  :D (Big Grin) 

Also, I have a question! What is the croconaw's fabric? It looks really leathery and I've never seen a doll like that! Congrats on your find too!La la la la

Oh yeah the Mismagius Pokedoll is really cool and not the easiest thing to find. The others ones you mentioned I'm not too sure how rare they are, but yeah those holy grails sound really cool. :D :heart:

BTW, is this the Lugia you have? slothyshroom.weebly.com/upload…

I think the Croconaw fabric is some kind of Tomy fabric. Not to sure but I'm pretty sure it's not minky; heck I could be wrong but that's just my thoughts.

Yee I'm not sure on their rarity. They just are my favorites XD

Also, that is not the lugia plush I have. That is the Pokémon center version. Mine has its mouth closed and is from takara tomy.
Awesome! I have seen pictures of the croconaw plush before and have always thought it was a leathery fabric. (Not sure how to explain what I thought is was sorry XD)
