My little bunch of Darumas. <3 Taken 20/8/11.
Pokemon Center - 2012
I've been really trying to cut down on my Darumaka buying of late, since my focus is really more on Darmanitan, but this is something I just couldn't let pass me by. It's the first sleeping Darumaka plush, and the first Pokemon I collect that has gotten its own Canvas plush! I've always loved the soft colour palets of the Canvas series, AND HE'S JUST SO SOFT. Nice and squishy too; much more so than his first Pokemon Center plush (seen above), who's a lot firmer.
Perhaps my favourite Darumaka plush out there.
My Pokemon Collection Darmanitan
Banpresto - 2012
FINALLY HE IS HERE. The "My Pokemon Collection" plush line only available in Japanese UFO machines, with every SINGLE gen 5 Pokemon being made, it seems in all their forms. I'm not sure if that means Zen Mode Darmanitan will be made, but GOD I HOPE SO. For now though. STARE AT THE BEAUTY THAT IS THIS DARMANITAN PLUSH. So many details for such a little plush. It's a little derp (handshandshands), but I love him anyway.
New Years Sleepy Darumaka Strap - Normal
Pokemon Center - 2010
Darumaka is even lucky enough to get its own promo! The Pokemon Center has put out a small collection of Darumaka "New Years" items. Here we see one of the two sleepy straps. This is the one that comes with a backing (with such pretty art), that can be used as a bookmark.
This is for srs, such a great strap.
And I can't get over how ROUND IT IS.
Darumaka Netsuke Mascot Strap Figure
Takara Tomy Arts - 2011
PHONE CHARMS. <3 The Netsuke Mascot line is always really nice looking! This Darumaka is definitely no exception. The only issue I could have with this is the painting's a little off in places. BUT THAT DOESN'T BOTHER ME BECAUSE THIS IS SUCH A PRETTY FIGURE.
It was so hard to get that name tag to face the right way omg.
Darumaka Keychain Figure (?)
Banpresto - 2011
One of those fancy non-plush UFO prizes. Came out with those sexy beasts on the tag.
This keychain is a LITTTTLE durpy. I'm trying to place what it is about it. Maybe it's the fact the smile is just that little too big, or the eyebrows are a little wrong. Idk, but it sure is funny looking.
Darmanitan Regular Kid
Bandai - 2011
The first Darmanitan figure. <3 This may just be my most favourite Kid in the history of forever. It's ADORABLE. The round body, those stumpy arms, that psychopathic face. ALL PERFECT.
The paint job is a little sloppy BUT I CAN DEAL.
The weird thing is, though this figure was made available in Feb 2011, on the butt it says 2010.
I totally got this MIP, but I forgot to take a picture of the box WOOPS.
Darmanitan Pokemon Chupa Surprise Figure
Subarudo - 2011
This Darmanitan Chupa Surprise figure is I BELIEVE from the second Black and White set.
Darmanitan seems to be good at getting stuff from the second set of things.
But this figure, it is so GOOD. Despite only being a few centimetres big, this guy has SO much detail on him, it's really quite incredible. Plus he's got a nice pose here too.
Just struttin' his stuff.
Darmanitan Clipping Figure
Bandai - 2011
You know, I always have thought Clipping Figures were pretty awesome. They're unique, well made, just all around awesome.
And this is no exception.
Just, take a moment to look at the eyebrows.
You see that?
THEY'RE FREAKING SEE THOUGHT.
I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW COOL THAT IS.
Darmanitan Jakks Pokeball "Catcher"
Jakks - 2011
So apparently Jakks can't do anything in the middle. It's either OH MY GOD SO HUGE, or teeny tiny widdle mini. This figure falls into the second category, with it being the smallest thing in my collection of fire durps, being only a cm or two high!
He's a little durpy, but still pretty impressive for how FREAKING TEENY IT IS.
Darmanitan Pokeball Metal Keychain
Takara Tomy Arts - 2010
My first Daruma ape merch awwh.
It was taking too long to get any figure merch, SO I BROKE DOWN AND BOUGHT THIS.
This was released in a set with the rest of the more popular Gen5 Pokemon, and the starters AND the game mascots. On the back is a Pokeball design.
