Called “A Day with Pikachu,” the collection will be available on PokemonCenter.com. Each figure from the line will depict the iconic Pokémon Pikachu celebrating a different season or holiday, with one new figure arriving every month. The first figure will be available on Feb. 13 and features Pikachu holding Luck Incense. Each figure will also come with an insert showing a silhouette sneak peek of the Pikachu figures scheduled for release in the coming months.
“We’re excited to team up with Funko once again to deliver more beloved Pokémon characters to our fans,” says J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “Funko’s distinct, stylized aesthetic makes them the perfect partner to introduce an expanded range of figures that will delight both the Pokémon and Funko communities.”
The Pokémon Company International and Funko will also deliver an expanded general line of Pokémon Funko Pop! figures, following a successful collaboration last year that brought the first-ever Funko Pop! Pokémon figure.
The next Funko Pop! Pokémon figure showcases a 4-inch vinyl version of Bulbasaur, a favorite character from the video game franchise. The Bulbasaur figure will debut on Pokémon Day, Feb. 27. Additional Funko Pop! Pokémon figures are expected to launch in the future.
