I choose you!
Just ahead of the avalanche of E3 news, Japan’s Pokémon Center has revealed that Red from Pokémon will be receiving the figma treatment.
Currently there is not a lot of information about what the figma comes with in terms of hands, faces, and accessories. However, the reveal does list that Red will be coming with the three starter Pokémon from the first generation of games: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. Pikachu will also be available as an accessory, but only for those who pre-order.
Pre-orders go live for Good Smile Company on June 13, while Pokémon Center will have them live on June 17. Now that being said, I am not OK with this unless it leads to a figma for Blue which comes with an accessory that’s just a full badge case so I can pose him being a showoff. It just wouldn’t feel right otherwise.
