Magikarp Finally Gets Its Due (Along With Eevee, Mew, And Some Lightning Mouse) In The New Pokemon Gallery Figures
Real talk: Magikarp rules. Of all the Pokémon who made their debut 21 years ago, it's the one that I think we can all truly identify with, a literal fish out of water who flails around uselessly, but then one day, one day, through hard work and persistence, turns into a flying laser-breathing dragon that can devastate the land in its rage. Or maybe I've just revealed too much about myself.
Either way, Magikarp is finally joining the pantheon of Generation 1 superstars in the Pokémon Center's new line of Gallery Figures. The first four hit shelves with a set of incredible little figures of Eevee, Mew, and, of course, Pikachu. Check them out below!
And here's the official information:
The first release of dynamically posed Gallery Figures includes Pikachu, Eevee, Mew, and Magikarp. The line depicts each Pokémon as it performs one of its signature moves: Mew using Psychic, Eevee using Swift, Magikarp using Splash, and Pikachu using its iconic Thunderbolt attack. The line will also feature premium packaging, specially designed to display the figures either in or out of the box. For fans who want to display the figures out of the packaging, all Pokémon are posed on equally sized bases.
The figures will launch on PokemonCenter.com on Pokémon Day, February 27. Pokémon Day takes place annually on this date in observance of the launch of first Pokémon video games and is celebrated by fans around the world. In addition to the release of these figures, fans can celebrate their love for all things Pokémon and connect with the global fan community on Pokémon Day with the hashtag #PokemonDay.
Additional releases featuring more Pokémon in the Gallery Figures line will be announced later in the year. Each figure is sold separately and will be available for $16.99 on PokemonCenter.com.
