These new Pokémon model kits are fearsome and frugal

They came to bring the pain, hardcore from the brain

These may not be as cute as the Pokémon Red Nendoroid we got our panties in a twist about the other day, but look! More new Pokémon toys! Straight out of the 53rd Shizuoka Hobby Show, these Poképla kits are hitting Japanese store shelves in June. The kits feature Mega Lucario and Mega Charizard X. And just look at Charizard. He is not to be trifled with.

The model kits will require some paint for completion as our friends at Tomopop remind us, but they can be yours for ¥1,026 this summer, AmiAmi reports. What do you think? They look pretty fearsome, but I'm horrific with model kits. The last one I put together was an SD Deathscythe. And even that was a chore. Maybe I can just get one and pay someone else to put it together for me. Any takers?
