I can't believe Pokemon is finally getting the level of merchandise that I yearned for as a kid at the height of its popularity (?) in the '90s.

I guess that's the case for a lot of properties, but Pokemon felt like the biggest thing in the world in the late '90s.

An unexpected birthday surprise today.

Local guy messages me on FB because he knows I collect this stuff and he was pretty sure he found something new. It was Moltres! Hadn’t seen any reports of these yet, so I was super surprised. Immediately ran down to Target in the midst of Ohio State game day traffic and grabbed one.

Love having the complete trio!

Just saw that a new Geodude/Mudkip pack was put up on Ebay. I've got the old, articulated Brock, so I'll definitely be on the lookout for that one!

Man, outside the bigger Select figures at Target, my area has been dry of Pokemon figures for months now. Pegs are either empty or it’s just old stock.

Same. I eventually caved and ordered Absol from Gamestop and paid the shipping for just him. :o I'm going to check Fleet Farm this week. They usually get the smaller Pokemon figures with their Xmas toy shop, so I hope they'll have the new stuff. Also, check Kohls. One near me had a whole shipper of the newest wave of clip and go figures.

Great to see, and this gives credence to all those Target and Gamestop listings. But I wonder where the supposed waves 2 and 3 Pokemon are, like Tyranitar. The fact that it's the non Hisuian forms of the Legends Arceus starters makes me wonder if they started work on these before they got to see those final forms, or if they just opted for the more well known forms.

Glad to see this line continue. I'm pretty happy with some of these new Pokemon choices. I do wish Tyranitar would come out too though (as was rumored long ago). I was looking forward to that one.

I'm looking forward to Dragapult in this wave especially. Bring on the Dragons!

I was hoping to see a good new Mewtwo as well. But Tomy did a pretty good articulated one a number of years back. I am pretty happy with it. In fact I found it more fun than the Figuarts version (personal preference).
