I remember there was a post not too long ago about some small pokemon plush starting to show up in claw machines in US arcades. But was there a post about the large ones that have started to show up?
gearpony and I were browsing the mall yesterday and, as we passed the arcade that normally just has the typical Carebear and Shrek fare, an unexpected fire-monkey butt pressed against the glass caught my eye. Huge pokemon plush? In my arcade? Apparently it's more likely that I thought!
After deciding to try my typically horrid luck at chance games, I ended up breaking the claw machine after it ate my quarters and refused to move. Though rather than refunding the two bucks in quarters after sticking an 'out-of-order' sign on the machine, the staff let me pick whatever plush I wanted from the pile. I picked up Croagunk <3.
Here's a size-relation pic comparing it to an average sized house cat.
