Kotobukiya Reveals New 9-inch Pokémon Figure

Amidst the 20th Anniversary excitement surrounding the revered Pokémon series, figure and statue company Kotobukiya have revealed the first PVC figure in their new series. As shared by Tumblr user OhnoRaptors (via. NeoGAF) and Amiami’s News’ Twitter page , The handpainted Pokémon figure stands 9 inches tall (1/8 scale), and features the trainer Red next to a electrically-charged Pikachu.

You can see the figure here.

Red was the first Pokémon trainer to be playable in the Pokémon games. According to the site My Figure Collection, the figure is part of  the company’s ‘Pokémon series’, so we can probably expect more figures to arise in future.

The newest entry in the Pokémon series will be Pokémon Sun and Moon, and will be making its way to trainers in November. Mythicals are also being distributed throughout the year, with this month’s being Darkrai.  The Pokémon Cookbook was also recently confirmed for a Western release in December 2016, offering numerous recipes for morsels inspired by the series’ plucky Pocket Monsters.

Kotobukiya is known for its production of high-quality statues and figures of comic book, movie anime and video game characters. Previous creations from the company include Street Fighter’s Sakura and DC’s Lex Luthor. According to Pokepolitan, the second figure in Kotobukiya’s series will be May and Mudkip, due to arrive “sometime in 2017.” 

Although a specific release date doesn’t appear to have been detailed yet, the figure appears to be confirmed for a 2016 release.
