Latest Figure Hauls: X-Plus Telesdon
About two weeks ago I received an Ebay e-mail saying one of my watched items had been re-listed. It was an X-Plus Kiyla. Instead of taking me to it however, it took me to another figure, the X-Plus Telesdon. I was taken off-guard by this, this Telesdon I've been wanting for a long time. Being an X-Plus, it usually goes for $170, so I thought I wouldn't be able to get it until Christmas. The price on this one was $39.90 plus $18 shipping, I couldn't believe it. I went into the details and saw that it was 'C8.' I had no idea what that meant, so I looked it up and found out it meant 'Condition 8.' So C8 was pretty great. (It's on a 1 to 10 scale.) This was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I took it. Two weeks later, it is now mine. I would have never thought I would have this one so soon. It doesn't disappoint, this being an X-Plus, the detail is amazing. The look, the teeth, the tongue, all beautifully sculpted and matches this guy's appearance 100%. Telesdon is my fourth favorite Ultra monster, it's great to have his best representation since the Bandai vinyls on him aren't really that great.
