12 New Pokemon San-Ei Plushies & 6 Mini Plushies Released In Japan

Today the Pokemon Centers in Japan released 12 new Pokemon San-Ei plushies and 6 mini plushies.

This is the first time that they have released mini plushies other than Pikachu and Bulbasaur back in 2017.
The larger plushies were Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur, Pachirisu, Growlithe, Azumarill, Petilil, Teddiursa and Magikarp. The mini size plushies were Pikachu, Psyduck, Jigglypuff, Oddish, Poliwag and Snorlax.

For those of you who are not familiar with San Ei plushies, they are high quality plushies made with a small amount of beans inside for balance. The quality is extremely good (even better than Pokemon Center usually), but they are slightly more expensive than other plushies of similar size. The plushies varied in price with Charizard, Blastoise and Venusaur costing nearly double the normal price due to the explicit quality.

I dont expect some of these to last long, but you can still find them on Pokevault. Todays release brings the number of San-Ei plushies to over 130 with more in production.

Pokemon Time Campaign #4 Goods Have Arrived

Finally there are some new Pokemon Time goods at the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Its been quite a while since the last round of Pokemon Time goods was sold. This time its from the 4th campaign. There are 10 characters this time and I must say that I like the characters this time around. Charizard, Bulbasaur, Venusaur, Dragonair, Oddish, Growlithe,  Psyduck, Magikarp, Gengar and Poliwag.

There was 10 different phone straps made, one of each of the 10 characters. In addition there was also all 10 characters made into clear file folders. Oddish, Poliwag, Charizard and Growlithe were the only characters to be made into square-shaped spiral notebooks. These are very cool and seem to be very popular.

There was also 3 different character pens that came in plastic tubes. Each of the pens features 4 Pokemon Time characters. A day planner/calendar for 2013 that features all the different characters with a monthly calendar, memo pages and yearly calendar is very nice.

Probably the best items in the campaign are the Growlithe deck sleeves and the deck box with all 10 characters. Anyone who plays the Pokemon TCG will love these items. The sold out extremely fast at the Pokemon Centers.

This campaign was timed for the start of school, so it seems to be focused mainly on school supplies. The last campaign had earphones, computer mouses, mousepads and more recreational items. But I really like the characters this time around.

Of course you can always find these products available while they last at Pokevault.com. Hopefully they will add some more items to this campaign, but for now that is all the items that have been released. Im really looking forward to the next Pokemon Time campaign. Stay tuned.

Made In Japan: Kanto Edition Part 2

By Factory White Head

I promised more, and here it is! Today we’ll have a look at four fan-favorite Kanto Pokemon: Golduck, Growlithe, Arcanine, and the ever-so-popular Meowth! I’m sure you’ll learn something new, or at least be reminded of something.  The Maneki Neko, also known as the Beckoning Cat or Lucky Cat, is the origin of Meowth. Legend has it that a cat raised its paw to beckon a wealthy lord towards him, saving him from a bolt of lightning that stuck the tree the lord had been standing under. The lord rewarded the cat’s owner with many riches, and since then, cats with a raised paw are deemed good luck. Maneki neko are found at the entrances of many businesses and restaurants, welcoming guests and bringing good luck. They are often found with an ancient coin called a koban, the same kind Meowth has on its forehead.
