As you can see from the photo above, one of the sights of the TGS merch room this year would be a sure thrill to fans of the Professor Layton game series. These unfortunately weren't for sale just yet, displayed with a sign that promised they were coming soon. What sweet sorrow! I would have grabbed a few just to take home and give away on Tomopop.

Just make yourself a little Google alert called "Professor Layton plush" and you'll be good to go.
