Gible is, hands down, my favourite pokemon of all time. MORE INFO AFTER THE BREAK
collection as of 17th January 2011
What would a pokemon merchandise collection be without kids! This is the first Gible kid ever released, and he is such a cutie! Cutie lil' gibgib! This one comes complete with box and stat sticker. I also have the european release of this kid, but there is literally no difference between them (apart from the fact it came in a box set!)
GIBLE ATTACK KID (TACKLE)
This is the attack version of Gible! Look at him supposedly using tackle but just falling over instead! SO PRECIOUS. This is one of my favouite figures as it doesn't suffer from 'same-pose-itis'. You're the best attack gible ;A; He also comes complete with box and attack kid card!
ASH'S GIBLE KID
The newest kid to join the Gible family! This is based off of Ash's gible in the anime. Just look at that huge grin! CO CUTE. Just a shame Ash caught Gible so late on, otherwise there would probably be a lot more merchandise available! Poor gibgib :C
This kid has already become somewhat hard to find due to him not being in stores very long because of B/W hype. He comes complete with box and stat sticker!
CLEAR GIBLE KID
Rarity: Super rare!
I was looking for this lil b****** for about a year, maybe more. HE IS JUST. RARE.
That people were starting to believe he didn't exsist because before now there were no pictures, no cases of people owning one (that I'm aware of), the works. He was from one of the very last sets that had clears, and being 1 in 40 boxes? Yeah, rare lil gibgib.
I was just doing my usual search for Gible on Yahoo Japan, not expecting anything. But what's this? A blurry picture of a gible kid a lighter shade than normal? If I had tea in my mouth it would have been spat. Everywhere. And it would have made a mess so IT'S A GOOD THING I DIDNT. So I won it, PAID $25 TOTAL FOR IT, and didn't regret a single cent.
Feels good man.
Gible was one of the lucky pokemon to get a Monster collection figure! And boy is it CHUNKY AS ANYTHING. It's huge! A lot bigger than most tomy figures are. Or maybe it's just me.
Gible you eat too much, you fatty fat fat fat :U
(but I still love you :B)
WATER SQUIRTER FIGURE
HNNNGH LOOK AT HIM
LOOK AT HIM.
I first saw this in the very corner of a pic in one of Denkimouse's collection updates, and I must have exploded, cos it all goes blurry after that. Of course I made it my absolute MISSION to track one of these down and it proved very difficult until Larvitarscar on pkmn collectors saved the day! If it wasn't for him I'd still be missing this little guy :D
This is easily the cutest gible I own. It's also the biggest. LOOK AT HIM WITH THAT POKEBALL. He's so 'hmph' and I love him :'D HE'S SQUISHY TOO. HOW DO YOU GET BETTER THAN THAT SERIOUSLY
GIBLE POKECOLLE CAP FIGURE
Rarity: Super rare!
Oh my god.
Okay, you guys are looking at the Gible figure I never thought I'd own. THIS GUY.
I found out about his exsistance on a blog back in...march I believe? It was a blog that specialises in pokecolle caps, and my god its just. THE CUTEST. On his lil throne of mud :'D I looked high and low for this lil guy to no avail; Yahoo japan, ebay, amazon, the works. He was just nowhere to be found, even though he was only realeased february of this year. WHY ARE YOU SO RARE. WHY.
But it seems that the pokecolle cap series always gets very limited runs, and the ratio of Gibles was astonishingly low. There was 1 gible and 1 chikorita to a box of 8 of these; the rest were Lugia's and Ho-oh's. STUPID TOMY AND THEIR DISTRIBUTION.
It's quite funny though because I found this by complete accident whilst looking up Gible's name in different languages. There were two shipping boxes available on amazon.co.jp of this guy along with the rest of the set and I knew this was it. I set up a group buy for the other figs and FINALLY, AFTER A MONTH OR SO, IT GOT HERE. (at the time I got a lot of PM's and a few comments for the link to the last box just so people could get the gible in this set. It's just that rare! Toz (happyjolteon, owner of Dialga FTW!) was the one I believe that got it, so congrats to her!)
So here he is. Lord Grailson. The big cheese. Standing on his throne of mud. On a tube. I WOULDN'T HAVE HIM ANY OTHER WAY <3
GIBLE LINE ZUKAN
For ages I only had this set incomplete (garchomp was missing his fin) but finally thanks to the legendary GA ran by misterdeluxe (IT WILL BE SPOKEN OF FOR GENERATIONS MY CHILDREN) I finally got a complete chomp :'D This is a really lovely set; Lil gibgib there is just PRECIOUS. So chubby and cute :'D
I spent in total around $35-$40 getting this complete set, when it turns out this is looking likely to be the next set released in the UK for a price point of $4. WELP.
At least I can buy like ten of these and just throw the gabite and garchomp away and watch all the chomp and zukan collectors weep manly tears. COS THATS HOW I ROLLLL
GIBLE CHUPA SURPRISE FIGURE
Whenever I get a new Gible figure in, I always say to myself 'this is my most favourite figure of Gible ;A;' and THIS IS NO EXCEPTION TO THE RULE. He's so tiny and cute! And he came with a chupa chup lolly. You can't get much better than that.
Though I bet half the time people would open them up and see Gible had eaten most of the lolly away. Sneaky Gibgibs :U
GIBLE CHOU GET
Gible suffering from same-pose-itis on a ORANGE HEXAGON.
Wow, only on a pokemon collection site would that actually make sense to people B:
ALSO LOOK LOOK GIBBUMS FIGURE ISN'T HE CUTE DAAAAW
METAL COLLECTION FIGURES
These guys are TINY. And so awesome :'D They came in a variation of 5 colours; copper, bronze, gun-metal, chrome and gold. Copper and Bronze are the only two I have and I'm looking to complete the set. These seem to be stupidly rare however :C I'LL KEEP LOOKING THOUGH.
OTHER NON FLATS
You press a button on the top and it shows a variety of pokemon, BUT WE DONT CARE ABOUT THE OTHERS WE ONLY WANT GIBBUMS WHY YES YES WE DO.
It has gible along with it's name in Japanese kanji.
This is a Gible eraser that was only available in Korea. This was on my wants for quite a while, but folvey off pkmn collectors got sales permission just so she could sell me this ;A; THANK YOU SO MUCH.
And it really is the cutest :'D The other side has a picture of Gible with his korean name: Dipsang-eodong. GIBLE HAS A SUGGESTIVE WORD IN HIS NAME LOL
Rarity: Rare/Very rare!
THAT NAME ALONE PUTS COLLECTORS INTO FITS OF TERROR.
Their distribution. My god.
SO I have 3 of the 4 Gible retsuden stampers ever made, and they are CUTE. The red one from movie 13 is my personal fave and is stamped onto all my packages :'D The yellow one unfortunately snapped off the base in the post, but a bit of glue fixed it right up! The pink one was from BrianJapan. I NEED THE FOURTH. LIKE BURINING.
I don't care if it's made of card. IT STANDS UP SO ITS NOT A FLAT OKAY?
I'll take what I can get. Poor Gib and his lack of non flats :C
ANYWAY. standee thing. Yes. AWESOME.
This is another one of those items that has other pokemon in it, but GIBBUMS THERE YOU ARE <3
This was a lucky find in a sales post, as the picture was only of the front and the back of the tracing case. Of course, the back has the tiniest thumbnail of which pokemon are in the set, and me being the crazy Gib lady I am, spotted Gible. SO I BOUGHT IT.
AND NOW IT'S MINE. <3
And I've never seen another one so I guess they're pretty rare :U
GIBLE VS KEYCHAIN
These keychains came with two metal pokemon 'tags' and were blind packaged in boxes with a card and candy. Gible, obviously, came with torterra, BUT TORTERRA ISN'T A PUDGY LAND SHARK so I gave it away B;
I also have another one of these sealed with Torterra intact, so don't worry torterra fans <3
MOVIE 13 KEYCHAIN
Another gacha product for movie 13. DETERMINED GIBGIB GO! This is a gorgeous keychain, the quality is fantastic! It's metal with a 3D pokeball relief on the other side. Fancy B:
I really should buy another one of these days for my keys <3
MOVIE 13 CHARM
Rarity: Super rare!
ANOTHER blind packaged charm for movie 13, but this one is A LOT rarer. And just amazing ;A; It's so purdy! These came in little cardboard slipcases and apparently getting the one you wanted was very hard. It also seemed they weren't available for sale ANYWHERE. I've only seen 3 charms from this set for sale, and they were all from the same person.
And yes, this charm came from that seller too B; Thank you sui_kune off pokemon collectors! WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT THAT COMMUNITY I SWEAR. This is a beautiful thing and is one of the jewels of my collection ;A;
It seems that Gible reeeally got spoilt in the Battrio department :B He has about 6 battrios MINIMUM to collect, and this makes me a very happy pokemon collector B: These are the only four I have so far, but I'm always after more if I find them cheap enough B:
My personal favourite is the REACH FOR THE STARS gibgib B; looks like he's about to jump on someone and NOM THEIR FACE B:
When I bought my first bromide I had no idea just how BIG it would be. It's postcard size!
And they make an awesome backdrop for my collection ;D
Apparently you can peel off the top layers to reveal further evolutions underneath, but WHY WOULD I EVER WANT TO DO THAT :T
The same as above, but SHINY.
A sticker sheet with Gible AND raichu on it?! ;A;
IT WAS DESTINY.
One of my favourite pieces because LOOK AT IT IT HAS MY TWO MOST FAVOURITE POKEMON ON IT HOLY GNNNGH
3D GIBLE ARMADAS
They're armada stickers. But not stickers.
AND THEYRE IN 3333333333333333DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
GIBLE CANDY WRAPPER
I think I'm one of the only people on the entire planet that keeps a candy wrapper just because it's got a pudgy land shark on it :T
But hey, I said everything with Gible on, and when I say everything...
Chrome Movie 13 Armada sticker
KOREAN 3D STICKER
'SEAL OF APPROVAL' STICKER
3D RETSUDEN MAGNET
