Entry 14:35pm - 08/01/2016. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)

 

We can now exclusively reveal Pokkén Tournament Suicune figurines, both of different colour variety, the same style we saw with the Lucario Kuji last year. This has a base for the figurine and stands at 9cm tall, with a majestic finish. Pictured in the first photograph, we see that figurine A has the standard colour scheme, and the figurine B has the costume finish. Release date yet to be announced.

 

Also, we have confirmation that brand new Nebukuro Pikachu Plush will be released later on in 2016, and will bring several Kanto plush crossovers, including Ditto, Raichu, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and finally Squirtle. Ditto and Raichu will be bigger plush at 24cm in height, the Eeveelutions will be 13cm, and the Kanto starters will also be the same size as the Ditto and Raichu, making it a Kanto frenzy of releases. These Pikachu plush will fall into the XY & Z category and are estimated around a May time release, but this is yet to be confirmed when they will be released as Kuji or claw machine prizes. Please keep checking back for further information.
