Group shot of all my adorable little Dunsparces. Taken 17/1/15.
Buru Buru Plush
Pokemon Center - 2013
Dunsparces first plush!! Can you believe it! I sure couldn't! All those jokes about how Dunsparce is the unloved child of gen 2 WHO'S LAUGHING NOW. I remember I was dropping of resumes when I got a text from my bud jedi_amara, yelling at me to check the comm. So, using up my precious phone credit, I loaded up the page, and.. wow. WOW. If I wasn't in the middle of a shopping centre I would've freaked, but I was still SUPER EXCITED.
It was released alongside Pikachu, Oshawatt, Joltik, and Bulbasaur. They're fairly small plush, but if you pull one of their extremities (in this case, Dunsparces tail) it'll come out on a cord, and when you release it, it'll be pulled back in, and a little box inside the plush will vibrate (which is where it gets the Buru Buru name, being the Japanese onomatopoeia for the vibrating buzz).
I love it so much I bought two. Not sorry.
Yujin/Takara Tomy ARTS - ?
Oh my God I'm so stoked to have this oh man. This figure is absolutely beautiful. I love his little wings, and dat MOUF.
He's sitting on the smallest sized Zukan base, so he may look bigger than you think. But its size does not detract from the quality in the slightest.
Ahh, Zukans. I can't not love you.
TOMY - ?
Uhhhg I am IN LOVE with this little guy. This is the illusive Tomy figure, made in who knows when. I got him MIB no less! A pkmncollectors member was doing runs in Hawaii (who knew they had good stuff!), and this Tomy was avaliable!
The yellow is a bit paler in real life, but small detail is small.
Bandai - 2001
Did I complain about having to get the regular Dunsparce Kid on Y!J? Ohhh how humorous. This little guy caused me much greater auction grief. All was well until the last ten minutes, when another bid came in. Bids were swapped over the next 20 minutes (yay auto extension) until I reached my max bid, and a little beyond that. But the other bidder was willing to go higher, so I vented on Twitter, closed my laptop, and tried to busy myself and not feel too bitterly disappointed.
I went back to Twitter a while later, to see that Gin had asked me what my bid limit was. AND I HADN'T SEEN IT. I started to panic, but then saw a second message from her, saying she'd just "accidentally a Dunsparce", and to send the money whenever.
So that's how I didn't but did win the rarest Dunsparce in my collection. Friends are cool guys ok.
Battle Museum Figure
Bandai - ?
It's always exciting when I get a new Dunsparce. And this one I was especially excited to get! The Battle Museum figure, probably the only Dunsparce that has decided to get off its belly, AND DO SOME WORK.
From memory, I think this guy is using Rage.
Angry Dunsparce is even cuter.
National Dex Metal Charm
Pokemon Center - 2012
What is this madness? Dunsparce getting merch in 2012!? WHAT DOES IT MEAN. It means the Pokemon Center smiled down on us poor little collectors who missed the '09 Johto Charms promo (every Gen 1 and 2 Pokemon getting made into charms), and then did one better, releasing a charm of EVERY SINGLE POKEMON within 3 waves.
Dunsparce got the same pose as his 2009 charm, but I'm quite alright with that. Now there's no need to get the old, and incredibly hard to find Johto charm version! Unless I get super desperate.. Which we are not ruling out..
Dunsparce with his his pretty backing. The Johto charm paper was black background with silver Johtomon, while this is light and dark grey squares. DIFFERENCE.
Pokedoll Style Plush
By ME - 2011
This was just a little something I felt like doing while I waited for minky to arrive to do something else. The world forever needs more Dunsparce, AND I'M HERE TO FILL IN THE GAPS.
The tail embroidery that you can't even see from this angle took me DAYS. It was painful, I'll tell you that.
I call him Percy. <3
12" Bootleg Plush
N/A - 2013
Ok I KNOW it's not a custom per se, but it's also not a official plush so we're putting it here deal with it.
For a bootleg, it's actually pretty nice! Fairly soft minky, embroidered eyes. His little chin nubs are flat felt, and his wings don't stand up (hense the position for the photo) but for a cheap bootleg, it's super cute and OH SO SQUISHY. Good for some cuddling.
By Poly_Rhythm - 2011
This is an epic figure I got in a trade with comm member poly_rhythm for some Jiggly dice. He's really cool too! The figure's in two parts; the Sparce and the base. BURSTING FROM THE EARTH IN A GRUMPY MOOD.
He didn't fare too well on the international journey though. Most of the rocks were broken, and the mouth had split, going across the side of the face. I managed to fix it, mostly, but now he has this rad "scar" like the Joker.

Is this not a perfect thing? Omg Jade decided to be a delightful human being and make me a Christmas present. IT'S CLAY, MASTERFULLY SHAPED INTO A BISCUIT. WITH CLAY ICING can you just take a moment to admire that icing. How perfectly rolled and even it is. I know I could not even come close to that beauty right there Jade you are so talent thank you thank you.
Oh yeah, one more thing.
The white clay?
FREAKING GLOWS IN THE DARK.
Could not be more perfect if I tried.
