Vehicles for your figures were all the rage at one point, though most went into the bargain bin due to high prices or other reasons. Well, maybe if they’d looked like this the results would have been different! These are not specifically “for your other figure” type cars, but I’m pretty sure if you put a Nendo on one no one will know the difference! There are two styles: Pikachu and Oshawott, and they come in a set together for only ¥940 at AmiAmi. No specific sizing is given so you might be taking a bit of a risk here, but at that price you really can’t go wrong. I mean, it’s a car that’s also Pikachu! I mean it’s not quite as amazing as a cat that is also a donut, but it’s darn close!

For such a popular franchise, Pokemon doesn’t get a lot of attention in the figure-world. Sure, we get some model kits and TONS of trading figures, but there are really not that many larger, detailed models of the cast or the little critters they force to fight each other. However, Banpresto is making four detailed diorama-style figures of the starters from Black & White along with one other Pokemon in their line “Pocket Monsters Museum.”
We have the three starters: Oshawott (Mijumaru), Tepig (Pokabu), and Snivy (Tsutarja). However, I prefer to call them by their pre-English announcement names: Wotter, Pig-Butt and Smugleaf. Okay, so Tepig wasn’t called Pig-Butt, I just can’t remember his internet moniker. Then we have the fourth, Zebstrike (Zebraika), which seems like a rather odd face. You’d think they’d go with one of the cute ones, but instead we get the awesome electric-donkey.
These are prize figures, so they probably won’t be too hard to come by, and I know I’d love to have some cute little Pokemon dioramas on my shelves!
