Edit: They sold out in the early morning, there is always a chance they will get a second shipment (Like the OG Red did), so be alert!

Here it is. Its $99.99 plus shipping. Sharing this since the first one is so hard to find.

Pokemon Center Site

Amazon site.


As a reminder, the normal Edition is around $200 nowadays due to the rarity. Who knows how rare this one might be.

Just to note: people are starting to sell these are $200 for the lowest on eBay... use that in making a wise decision. It's similar to Fire Emblem Special Edition, and might end up being worse :/

Also make note that there is no limit in how many Amazon is letting you order. Everything is pointing that scalpers are going to have Christmas in this one.

Amazon: gives you a limit of 1 package of Series 3 Amiibo cards, when the Amiibo fad is starting to fade. 20th Anniversary America exclusive Pokemon Nendoroid? Have at it, kids!!

Yeahhh had to go ahead and order this. That $99 is painful though.

I'd like to get my hands on the Red/Green as well, but it's seeming doubtful we'll get a US release.

There really is no way whatsoever I can rationalize that. Hell, I can't really rationalize any of the Nendoroids without bringing in tons more money. :/
 
The entire thing just looks off. The pokémon have more or less the correct proportions but Red, while somewhat cute, is chibi'd the fuck out. I don't know what exercises you've been doing but they gotta revoke your gym membership, homes.

They're Nendorable!

Looks like this will probably sell out in a couple of hours (876 units left). It's going down way faster than the original Red, which I believe lasted a couple of days before selling out.

Complain about the bead eyes and (usual) lack of mouths on Funko figures while you're at it.

Oh good! Some poor scalper will be able to get at LEAST 800 of them and them mark them up 3x :)
 
If your original post wasn't actually a joke: that's just how Nendoroids typically look. It really would be like complaining about the heads of Funko figures.

EDIT: More specifically the Pop! ones.

It wasn't a joke. While I'm not really familiar with Nendroids, I have no problem with the Red figure per se, I just find it weird that it's sold with other figures that have completely different proportions.

I am so torn on picking this up. I definitely prefer the look of Red and Green in the Japanese release, but I feel like this will end up being the more sought after release, and I dig the fully evolved starters.

Thanks for the Amazon link. I didn't even know Amazon was gonna sell it, so I bought it on Pokemon center until I saw this thread. Wasted $99 of my Amazon credit and got 2 Pokemon cds while I browsed as well.

Is everyone getting an estimated shipping of April 28? Ordered and says I'll get it in may. That sucks. I thought it was getting released today
 
Can't order either in the UK and we don't have pokemon centres here, going to have to get gouged on the price again.

Nintendo don't make it easy
 
Oh wait, this is US and Japan only? With the cost of a middleman I may not bother and just play my chances on the preowned market.

Having a wicked hard time rationalizing this having the original release. I'd be more inclined to pick up Red + Green.

I'm sure it will be up on Nippon-Yasan soon if people want to buy it. There should be plenty of ways to buy it even if you don't live in US/Japan.

Yeah, I'm expecting a massive update of Pokemon stuff on Nippon-Yassan come Monday... Must be sensible and resist overspending.
