Hey guys! I thought this was worthy enough to notify you guys about: After adding the Hoenn starter standard and 1:1 plushies, PokemonCenter.com has also added the Red Nendoroid!
Many of you are aware that these were exclusives at the Pokemon Centers in Japan, and if you were to try finding one now, the price would range from about $100-$200. If you missed out on this quality, nostalgic figure, this is your second chance! :)
Red is priced at a nice $49.99, but I also would like to share a way to get around the Pokemon Center's shipping fees!
A week or so ago, I was messing around on Amazon, when I discovered that the Pokemon Center USA actually has an Amazon store! Now, this may not be a big deal at first, but let me tell you why this is exciting:
* AMAZON PRIME!!! Okay, if you shop on Amazon frequently, you must know about the benefits of signing up for Prime. Besides a few free shows/movies on Amazon's Prime Instant Video, you are able to get FREE TWO DAY SHIPPING on thousands (possibly millions) of items on their site! The Pokemon Center is fulfilled by Amazon, which means you can get free shipping on basically everything! (I think the charms might have exceptions as 'add ons' though?)
So basically, I'm going to order two 1:1 plush later today and only have to pay the $44.98 for each. No shipping fees. And two day shipping.
I'm sure a few of you have already figured out about PC's Amazon storefront, but hopefully this helps others save money with their future purchases! I prefer Amazon over the PC's site any day.
* I believe the site was just fixed, but it's also worthy to note that occasionally the Pokemon Center website goes under maintenance where many items disappear. You won't have to worry about all those occasional hiccups with Amazon. They update both sites at pretty close times, so you wouldn't have to wait longer for one compared to the other when new items are added.
Hope this post helps some of you out! Happy Holidays!
