Gets! Pracoro Dice... and Collection Preview
My Zapdos dice collection. 2 (of 4?) poses from the large yellow dice and one sparkly neon green dice. 3 (of 3) poses of the green small dice and 3 (of 3) poses of the purple dice. I'm still missing a bunch of colors, I assume as the dice with other pokemon come in tons of colors. For sure, I'm definitely missing the 3 red Zapdos dice.
Got some new dice boxes from celebratetheday
. Wanted to get a main photo of how the large dice come in the box. Things I've learned from the Pracoro dice:
- Color of the dice on the box is the color you get, in this case a yellow Zapdos
- The large dice come in different poses like the small dice. From the instruction manual that came with the box, it looks like there are 4 different types of poses for each large dice.
- These are going to be insane to collect
People wonder where the large sparkly dice come from. I got mine from growly
in a weird dice launcher set. It looks like it's a launcher for the square game dice. Here are some photos from my old sales post back in 2009. [Front of Package] [Back of Package]
As you can see, the large sparkly dice was in the top right of the blister package.
More Pracoro Dice photos:
And just for fun, here's a quick look at my main two collections and how I display them. I've never shown this whole thing before. I'll do a breakdown of every single piece later. Still waiting for a bunch of goodies to come in the mail in the next few weeks.Tags: collection
/amused. you want to know those I've seen so far?
*takes a deep breath* neon red, neon orange, neon yellow, mustard yellow, pale yellow, silver, gold, blue. ...those are the small dice that I already have or will have. (besides purple and neon green). I sold a box with brown small dice and I still have another box for sale that has forest green small dice... so /those/ are around too.
2 of 4 for the big dice, yes.
also omg sparkly zapdos dice!
Do you think only certain Pokemon come in certain color combos? I've only eevee seen neon green, purple and red for the Zapdos dice. Have you seen any of the other colors for Zapdos?
...I kinda want and don't want there to be all these colors for Zapdos. XD
haven't seen. but honestly I hadn't seen most colours for most Pokemon till I opened them up. and uh the thing is that these come mint in holder, right? (see my sales post). and the pokemon that come together in that holder are always the same, apparently. (because I discovered I have a duplicate of the neon green holder that had zapdos and ditto). OBVIOUSLY THE HOLDER YOU GET IS RANDOM. >< >< ><
I've been really lucky with squirtle and have him in a lot of colours but I haven't had much luck with bulba and charmander. but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that yeah, they all exist. somewhere.
also if you know someone who knows the English rules of the game it'd be awesome. XD
Oh geez. So the holders have Pokemon on them too?
Also, with the sliding card holders, have you noticed the pokemon on them coming in different colors and poses like the dice too? If so, I might just die.
I haven't been able to find English rules anywhere. Maybe we can get some help from people who can read Japanese on the comm? I really want to know how to play now. The little square dice and other game pieces were really fun to put together!

Oh no! The cardcases come in different colors for each Pokemon too. Just saw a blue Zapdos cardcase on a box in your sales post.
by holders I meant this - http://celebratetheday.livejournal.com/pics/catalog/299/36720
actually. so you see ditto will always come with zapdos, scyther and snorlax.
but I did NOT notice the sliding card holders / cardcases had Pokemon on them. and yeah they come in a zillion colours. no clue about poses, tbh. and I did not notice that there was a zapdos cardcase in my sales post. /wry.
Is there definitely a Zapdos cardholer in that box on your sales post? T.T; I figured it might be random inside.
Oh, I see what you mean by holder. I thought you were talking about the plastic holder case that holds the game pieces. From your post it doesn't look like there is a Pokemon printed on that.
which box is it? /cannot see for her life. I'll check for you.
just broke it open. its mewtwo. O_O blind-boxing to the max. although there is one that has the number 6 on it and a giant wigglytuff that has... a different type of container. idek anymore.

As if the shelves was made for your collection....
Awesome set up srsly...
Collecting is a one story and setting them up is whole another story XD
Haha, yeah. It's a shelving system I got at Ikea. The shelves were adjustable so I could make them as high or low as I want. There are actually two more shelves above my collection and those are for my sister's Vaporeon collection.

love all your scraggies ;w; i have to be choosey with my scraggy plush for lack of space >:
Yeah, he has so many dolls! The bad thing is that they all start to look the same after a while. I'm committed to getting them all, but as you can see, I'm running out of space too!

I am a big fan of puracoro dice so it's nice to see so many variations together like that. :D
Your shelf is so full of yellow, it's a great contrast to the black shelves!
Thanks! I really hadn't noticed my main two collections were so... yellow before I put them all together like this. XD
Is "Puracoro" the term I should be using for these dice? I only call it "pracoro" because that's what's on the dice card holder.

Haha, I actually hated pink until I realized what my life had become. Oh well. :P
And yeah, that's right! In Japanese, you wouldn't be able to search for "pracoro" because there's no.. letter for just the "p", so you'd it would be "puracoro", yes!
Which other dice are you after? More Zapdos variations?
Yes! Any additional colors/poses for Zapdos are definitely on my list! I've also just learned that the cardholders come in different colors.
And thanks for the tips with the name. I didn't know that!
Ahh, it's so nice to see your collection! I'm looking hard at it for what you have that I'm still missing- mainly, I think it's the bellplush and the 151 badge!
I love looking at other Zapdos collector's collections. It helps me find out things I'm missing! I'm planning on taking better photos of items individually soon.
I got really lucky with that bell plush. I bought it about 2 years ago here on the comm for, I think, $45.
Gosh, that WAS lucky! That's as good a deal as when I managed to get the zukan for $15!
Looking to see what I'm missing is why I love looking at others' Zapdos collections, too. I'd love to get a closer view of yours! ;w;
I'll post it soon! This dice thing was also an experiment of how I could photograph it when the time comes. Still needs some work!
That was a good deal for the zukan! I think I got mine 3 years ago for like $25.
Do you happen to have a Zapdos Swing Charm?
Are you talking about the metal one with the red background? If so, then yes.
Ahh, ok then. Just wanted to ask since I have doubles at the moment

Ohmyohmyohmy... All those Scraggys and Scraftys! :3 So much..
Hehe! They got so much merch. Well, Scraggy anyway. I have a feeling when I break this whole thing down to take photos it's going to become overwhelming!

Can't wait to it :3
