Finally decided that I need a super-articulated Charizard (now that the SHF is $300, of course). Fortunately, that Jazwares figure looks like a good alternative if it's legit. The wings look a little small, but I'm going to keep an eye out for it.

I'm so tempted to get some of the battle action figures but the 'features' really ruin them for me.

At least Charizard is getting a new proper figure at some point. I hope the same for Snorlax. Mostly tempted to get Blastoise, Sharpedo and Gengar but the features are so tacky.

Get the Gengar model kit and the KO Snorlax piggy bank and SHF Blastoise.

Ended up picking up Gengar and Dragonite today along with a Select Shiny Pikeachu plush.

Gengar is actually pretty cool. Since he has no buttons or silly activation attachments I don't mind his action feature.

Did Wicked/Jazwares cancel the Select line? Found Mew & Pikipek so decided to pick them up. Good way to get some singles.

For some reason it doesn't seem like they released them or other characters like Goomy & Marshadow in any of the Battle Packs?

I haven't heard of any new Selects coming out. Were they only available at Gamestop? I believe you are correct, that those 4 figures were never re-released in other lines. Growlith was another one, and was kinda spendy on the aftermarket, but it recently was released in a belt pack. So there is still a chance for them to still get re-released.

Gamestop has the latest clip n' go and 4" battle figures in stock. I just got Raichu in the mail today and should get Sirfetchd and Vulpix tomorrow. Can't wait for a Pidgeot listing!

I just recieved Sir Fetched, Raichu, and Galarian Ponyta from the Gamestop website today. Ironically I also saw part of the wave at Target today too. They look good, but I haven't had a chance to open them yet.

Ugh. I ordered a Raichu from Game Stop and it came with a huge scratch right on the stomach visible in the package. Ordered a replacement, and the paint was somehow even worse. Now that I'm vaccinated, I think I will just go to a physical store to get a refund or hopefully make an exchange for one with better paint. :(

A few Wave 9 listings seem to be popping up for July 2021 (spotted on animestore.cz)

Wave 9 4" Battle figures:
- Inteleon
- Cinderace
- Mewtwo
- Ash and Pikachu

Wave 9 Clip and Go:
– Piplup
– Riolu
– Pikachu
– Teddiursa
– Sneasel
– Toxel

Wave 9 2" and 3" figure assortment
- Pikachu & Bulbasaur
- Squirtle & Appletun
- Charmander & Wynaut
- Boltund
- Leafeon
- Glaceon

I never buy the clip and go sets, on the assumption they will usually make it into a 3 pack eventually. Good to see that they seem to be committed to the Eeveelutions, disappointed to have more slots taken up by Pikachu and the Kanto starters, but I get why it happens.
Some neat updates on the European distributor sites (specifically Bliss Distribution)
Wave 10 2"/3" (due Sept 2021) listed as follows:
• Chikorita/Pikachu
• Cyndaquil/Deino
• Totodile/Abra
• Hawlucha
• Absol
• Gastly

Epic Figure Rillaboom (Due Sept 2021)

4.5" Battle action Scyther (Due June 2021) Not clear which wave this is supposed to be a part of, but given the time of dropping, could have joined wave 9 which was previously listed as Ash and Pikachu, Mewtwo, Cinderace and Inteleon.


Heo.com is also listing a Sinnoh 8 pack estimated to drop in October, which makes sense with the new games coming out and good news for anyone who missed the quote sparingly distributed Garchomp figure.

- 1x Pikachu
- 1x Riolu
- 1x Munchlax
- 1x Eevee
- 1x Lucario
- 1x Leafeon
- 1x Glaceon
- 1x Garchomp

Still no word on what the Wave 9 3-packs are going to include but presume it will be the Wave 8 figures interspersed with a few clip and go figures or figures from older waves and the obligatory Pikachu.

Nice find! I'm lookin forward to a Scyther. Hopefully it will only have a wing flapping effect, instead of a slashing one, to allow more posing. Dieno, Glaceon, and Leafeon are also most welcome.

I'm really glad the Epic figures are continuing. I love those larger figures, and want them to release as many as they can.

I can't imagine Scyther doing anything other than slashing, but we can dream. I wish the 4.5" just had normal articulation rather than the battle effects, but it's more aimed at children than collectors, so you have to take what you can get I suppose.

Totally agree, the epic figures (particularly the Venasaur and Gyarados) are some of the best in the line. I think the 12" select line for the anniversary are, for all intents and purposes, going to be epic scale too.

I am looking forward to the Gastly to complete the evolution line. They will look great together.

I found this listing on Amazon for an unknown 12" figure. Maybe its Rillaboom? The details inside the listing don't seem to match the title, so who knows, but I pre-ordered just in case.

Looks like it is. The code in that listing (PKW0182) matches back to the listing on Bliss Distributions.

I would have never thought to check and compare the Item Model Number. That's clever. I'll have to add that to my bag of tricks. :D
