7-11 Japan Merch Question + Some Small TPCI News

First off, I have a friend who will be visiting Japan soon :) Looks like he won't have time to search around for merch, and I'm not even sure if he'll be in the area to head to the Pokemon Center in Tokyo. So I figured that 7-11s would be convenient :D Although I'm not even sure how plentiful they are there, compared to North America. Either way, I'm curious as to what merch is sold in Japanese 7-11s? I think kids are sold here? Honestly I have no idea. I'm just guessing most candy treats, but I think there's some figures?


Now for the small news: TPCI now has a North American Pokemon page on  Facebook and even a Twitter account of all things :p Well, maybe now it will actually be easier to get ahold of them! Who knows... Still, it's a good sign! I already sent a tweet mentioning how merch is poor in North America, and asked who owns the toy license now, and about if they'll make more kiosks. (I hate Twitter's limit, but from my experience, companies usually get back to you via Twitter than through Facebook). I doubt I'll get a reply back but who knows :p We can always continuously bug them about this, or maybe even create some massive "we want merch!" campaign! :p Who knows, but the doors are open... even if just, a little wider :)

EDIT: Hey guys, I do LOVE Krispe Kreme myself, but well, the topic has had MORE talk about food than discussion of the topic at hand. Sorry, but everytime I see that my phone has an email reply, I find out it's about donuts and not Pokemon :(
