A bunch of great announcements from the Pokeon site today, although most we already knew about.
First up: the All-Star Collection is finally coming out, and it’s coming out tomorrow instead of the original release date of December 12th (surprise!) The large cushions (Pikachu, Wailord, Gulpin) are also coming out tomorrow.
Adding excitement to more excitement, Sanei announced over their official Twitter account that there will be a part 2 to the All-Star Collection as well as the fluffy cushions line-up, which will include Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Mew, Snorlax, and Ditto (among others?) with an estimated release date of February 2016.
As previously mentioned, these four large size sleeping plush will be available starting from December 12th at a retail price of 3,800 yen each, plus tax.
Also previously mentioned, a bunch of stationary related merchandise featuring Ash’s Greninja and a block-style Pokemon design will come out in Pokemon Centers and stationary / bookstores on December 19th.
4 new metal charms (Ash’s Greninja and the various Zygarde formes) will also be available for purchase from Pokemon Centers on December 26th.
Last but not least, the Steiff Pikachu plush is currently available for pre-orders, with an estimated release date starting in February.
There will only be 1,000 of this first edition Pikachu plush and it is a Japan exclusive, retailing at 45,000 yen.
Still no word about the New Years promotion, but hopefully next time!
