My Huntail collection! (Taken 22/1/13.) Not too bad for a Huntail collection, if I do say so myself!
Yujin/Takara Tomy ARTS - ?
Even though Huntail's in his default pose, I love this Zukan so much. Having a full 360 view of Mr.Huntail is something no other Huntail merch provides.
Plus Clamperl and Gorebyss. Idk how that clam evolves into something so awesome, BUT I'M JUST GOING TO GO WITH IT.
I've also gotten an extra loose Zukan piece of Huntail, just because I can.
Bandai - 2004
I had no idea Huntail was lucky enough to get a clear Kid when I started collecting him! One day I was bored, and casually checking out Y!J, and I saw a group of Kids that looked good for a GA. I took a closer look, and to my delight, I saw a Huntail Kid that looked just a little lighter than it should.
The GA was ran, and to my absolute joy, it WAS a clear Kid! This little babe is such a welcome edition to my collection. <3
Custom Shiny Re-paint Kid
Bandai - 2004
After seeing Slothyshroom's PKMNCollector posts including the Kids she'd repainted herself, I decided, why the hell don't I do that myself?
So I did.
It take a LOT more time, and a LOT of accuracy and focus to repaint a Kid than I thought.
Sadly I did not have the whole focus part.
This is why you won't get to see any closer at the horrid paint job than this.
I think I'll just stick to plushies, leave repaints to the pros.
Bootleg Huntail figure
N/A - N/A
Oh bootie Huntail, this guy is so silly. I saw him on eBay in a lot with his evolutionary buds, but it was some ridiculous price just to get the Huntail, so I restrained myself.
BUT THEN! A massive Tomy GA was held, and this little bootie durp was in it! Of course I couldn't miss my chance, and no-one else wanted him, so thus, Bootietail is all mine.
Though I had to give him a good paint job to make sure he actually LOOKED like a Huntail. Before that, the only parts of him that weren't blue were his eyeballs, head thing, mouth and back ridges. :U He was might durpy.
Bootleg Pokedex Figure Thing
N/A - N/A
This is quite the curious bootleg. While it's the exact same mold as the Pokedex figure, down the the same rock formation, it's, like, TWICE AS BIG.
And clear green. Lolwut.
NO MATTER! The addition of a big new Huntail figure is always a welcome one, and despite its bootlegness, is quite nice!
Though it is a little pungent..
National Dex Metal Charm
Pokemon Center - 2012
NEW MERCH!!! Oh Pokemon Center, you make me ever so happy. In 2009, the Pokemon Center made all of Gen 1 and 2 into charms. But this time they've up'd the anti, making every Pokemon ever (Gen 1-5, excluding those super obscure Gen 5 ones.. maybe. :U WE DON'T KNOW YET), throwing collectors into somewhat of a frenzy.
The huntail is.. perfect. For this charm they used the Dream World artwork, which hasn't gotten any merch until now. I LOVE IT. OH SO MUCH. <333
These charms came in evolutionary lines. Here's Huntail with the family.

So hey did you know I have some of the best friends ever because omg CAN YOU JUST. LOOK?
If you ever doubted Huntail would make a good Pokedoll, doubt no more. Seriously look at all those beautiful machine embroidered details. And all that soft ass minky.
His name is Sorbet and he's a cutie patootie.
By Foureyedalien - 2011
I remember when I saw Jade upload this to DeviantArt back in 2011, oh my gosh, I was so smitten by it. But I knew she loved Huntail too, and probably made it for herself, so I admired it from a distance, and let it slowly float out of my memory.
So you can imagine my delight when I open a Christmas package from her, and see that very same sculpture I'd fawned on over a year ago! OH MAN. The pose is so much better than any official or bootlegged figure I've found to date, and just look at that precious little face.
Such an incredible little durp, and something I'll be sure to treasure.<3
Beautiful from all angles~

I almost didn't commission this card. But everyone else who was lucky enough to snag a slot order the maximum three cards, while I had only ordered one. Feeling a bit wasteful, I decided to also ask for a Huntail! THUS, THIS WAS BORN.
I could not be happier with the artwork here. I am like, in love with this card.
On the back there's a design of a Pokeball with wings coming off it, and a crown on the top, as shown below. Perfect way to finish it imo.
"Sleepy" Phone Strap
By Taycs - 2011
So it's no secret that I love sleepy eyed Huntail ever since I got the beautiful custom card above. So when Taycs on LiveJournal opened phone strap commissions at a wonderfully affordable price, how could I turn it down?
Thus, I add to my Huntail collection another sleepy Huntail! And my first custom phone strap.

HERE IS MY BB, WEAVING HER ILLUSTRATIVE MAGIC ONCE AGAIN. This time I actually commissioned her (crazy, I know), for a Huntail ACEO. And she certainly did not disappoint. The colouring is, as per usual, gorgeous, and the actual artwork is really nice.
These colours are just to die for like how can you not adore this.
