You can mix and match and change the order of the pieces on the tree to make your own customized tree. But, the best thing is that each tree piece comes with the bottom piece of the tree, so you can even make a short tree with one or two pieces or you can make a huge giant tree. The finished 8 piece tree stands about 11″ (28cm) tall.

You can even combine the tree pieces with series #1 and #2 to make one giant tree or make a whole forest.

Thunderbolt Project Black Pikachu Large Plushies REAL VS. FAKE!

The Thunderbolt Project Black Pikachu was a collaboration between FRGMT and Pokemon. It featured Pokemon designs by  Hiroshi Fujiwara.  The event was held on October 20, 2018, in Tokyo. At the event there was tshirts, sweatshirts, bags, and more for sale. The Black Pikachu plushies were used for displays, but were never put up for sale. When the event was over, they were given to some staff and other people with ties to the event. There were 2 versions:

STANDING VERSION

SITTING VERSION

The plushies are a jet black color and are quite large. Each plushie comes with a Thunderbolt Project drawstring bag

The tush tag has a red and black Thunderbolt Project logo on the front.

And the Thunderbolt Project logo on the back.

Some of you might have seen these on Ebay or Amazon for very cheap. UNFORTUNATELY those are fakes/bootlegs.

The authentic Black Pikachu is much larger than the fake one and the color should be jet black. The fake Pikachu is gray. In addition to the fake Pikachu having an oddly oval shaped head, you will also notice that the tush tag is different.

And this is where it just gets downright embarrassing for the makers of this fake.

They put a Pokemon Center tag on it. It was NEVER for sale at the Pokemon Center. And the tag says 2016!!!! The event wasnt even until 2018.
I made a video showing the difference between the authentic Pikachu and the fake Pikachu.


There was VERY few authentic Black Pikachus made, so they wont be around for long. You can find them on Pokevault while supplies lasts.
