I have nothing to say for myself... I went balls-to-the-wall crazy bidding on this, after deliberating for a couple days over whether I could afford it (between bills, community purchase commitments, etc), where I would put it, and if it was really something I wanted to pursue.

I don't know if I can call this a grail. The giant PC Lapras has been on my wants list for ages, and wasn't something I ever thought I'd obtain even before confirming out how rare it was on pkmncollectors (not seeing it listed on any ancient sales websites or in anyone's collection, aside from the mysterious photo on someone's porch that everyone has), much less see for auction. I was even debating about parting with my small lapras collection, since obtaining the giant PC plush and "completing" it was such an impossibility. I'm glad I didn't! Tracking down the rest of the lapras plush, and even the mirage plush, seems like it has purpose again, and I can confidently say I'll be motivated to resume tracking down lapras figures as well :D

The only thing remaining now is the anxiety-ridden wait for it to arrive safely at Treasure Japan's warehouse and be shipped to me. At least this will give me time to clear off the space I want to put her, and likely clear out a majority of what's left of my never-seen side collections x)

I want to put her right at the foot of my bed on my piano bench, which is a space that has up until now been occupied by Gandalf the Arceus TOMY plush, my fire horse binders, and a box full of whatever is currently in my sales post/designated to go there. I'll need to get rid of all that, as well as most of my unneeded sales items, to even have a shot at fitting Lapras there. I think some of my big plush will have to go, too, because I've got way too many large plush now that are main/side collections to keep ones that aren't. Spare Regigias TOMY, Infernape TOMY, and DX Kirakira Arceus must go.




Though... she might be too wide to fit on my piano bench, which means I'll need to have a backup place for her. While puzzled over where else to put Lapras, I am quite pleased that I have the opportunity to have this problem :)

thanks! I'd offer to bring it to a meetup, but I just don't think that'd be feasible with such a large plush XD

Wow! Major congrats! I don't think I've ever seen a picture of this in someone's collection, just that one random one you mentioned. I'm so excited for you!

That's why I'm so excited to have seen it for auction! Winning it is just..... beyond words for me right now. I just spent the day going on a room-cleaning binge both to try and keep myself from totally freaking out and to make room for giant plush |D
