My gaggle of Tropius! (Taken 20/8/11).
Banpresto UFO plush
Banpresto - 2008
Finally, I have my grubby little paws on this little guy! All it took was a little patience, and being in the right place at the right time. He's a very soft velboa, with felt for pretty much everything else. It's a bit of a shame something a little nicer than felt wasn't used, but I get why they would do so. And this plush is still INCREDIBLY cute! Quite delighted to include this into my collection. <3
Yujin/Takara Tomy ARTS - ?
Tropius Zukan, you look so cute with your ever hopeful eyes filled with hope and innocence. I'm quite glad to see you've finally joined my gang.
You can't see it here, but he's got his back left foot lifted up, as if he's all "YEH, GOING ON AN ADVENTURRRRRE."
Also, this Zukan is the same height as my Venusaur one! Apparently Venusaur and Tropius are supposed to be the same size/weight.
I find that a little hard to beileve.
Attack Kid (Synthesis)
Bandai - 2006
This has to be my favourite Tropius Kid, and maybe one of my favourite Tropius's in general. Different pose and facial expression ftw.
It seems this guy is using "Synthesis", you know that annoying attack where Pokemon get to RESTORE THEIR HP? That was the bane of my existance for a long while.
Kaiyado - ?
Kaiyado is a company well known for making superb figures with so much detail and dynamic poses. They made one official set of TFG's, then, to many collectors disappointment, discontinued the second set of figures that were soon to be released. A little while later, some unknown figures from a third set start to surface on eBay. After some investigation, it was proven these weren't bootlegs. Tropius was lucky enough to be in that third set!
It may be a bit early to say it, but this is the favourite part of my Tropius collection. He's just... sitting on his booty. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?
Bandai - ?
Clipping figures are usually made to look like they've come straight out of a picture. So that usually means pretty spiffy poses.
This little guy is so... little. He can fairly easily just chill on my thumb. I think he's just come back from a lot of flying, and he's resting his poor little leaf wings.
TM Collection (Pencil Topper) Set 3
Bandai - 2005
I love this line of merch so hard. The TM Collection were a bunch of Gapcha prizes, depicting Pokemon using various attacks. Apparently here Tropius is using "Magical Leaf"! Looks more to me like he's about to take off for a bitchin' Fly attack.
All the same, this is quite a fabulous figure.

THIS THING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PHOTOGRAPH. SO SMALL, AND SUCH A DIFFICULT POSE./rage
Keshipoke are the newer version of the metal Keshimon. They're made of coloured plastic, and are almost as tiny! For how small this Tropius is, the amount of detail put in it is really quite impressive!
I know it may look a little scruffy, but that's because this is like... 2.5x it's normal size.
You know, before I bought these, I always wondered what the big deal was about settei.
Then I bought settei.
NOW I KNOW WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS ABOUT SETTEI.
It feels so amazingly cool to have official production artwork, plus they're a great reference when actually trying to draw them!
Plus all the different poses/points of view. Beautiful.
UP IN THE SKY.
IS IT A BIRD?
IS IT A PLANE?
IT'S A FREAKING DINOSAUR.
Flying Tropius is so elegant.
? - ?
I remember I had SO many flats like this when I was younger. I always used to buy my food based on the extras included, and I remember some chips always used to have these types of flats inside. So every time I get one, it's a big nostalgia trip.
THANK YOU FOR THIS SORJEI. <3
By rocket_chick - 2011
Oh man this card is so delightful! Rocket_chick, being the wonderful person she is, did this for me for free, (as a payback for something I gave her) and sent it as a secret surprise with my LOLSAUR! I see why she gets so many commissions when her slots open; she does such great work with such a small amount of space (about the size of a regular Pokemon Card)!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS. <3
