Pokemon Zukan / Zuken Collection Update

Good day everyone! 

A couple months have passed since October the 25th, and that means it's time for another collection update! As always there's plenty of new stuff to show including a whopping  NINE 10/10 items! 

I've also gotten yet another step closer to owning all bird Pokemon! Some really gorgeous stuff coming.

This post will be massively image heavy, as just like with the previous updates I've used a white space (the biggest one yet!) to photograph each figure on their own; so please open this post on a new tab!

Authenticity Check?

EDIT: Turns out these are very good bootlegs! I've received a refund from the seller who was unaware, thanks for all the help!

Hey guys! I was recently really excited to win an auction for an authentic set of Pikachu and Eevees Easter plush! But.. now that they've gotten here I'm a little skeptical about the "authentic" part :/ There seems to be a handful of stitching on both plush that don't look too great, as well as a lot of loose stitching. Can anyone tell me if these are real or not??

Thanks in advance!!

Funko Bulbasaur Pop and A Day with Pikachu Figures

Hi guys!

It looks like Funko has announced some new Pokemon figures. Funko announced a new Pokemon Pop, and this time it's Bulbasaur! From the Funko Blog,

Pop! Pokémon: Bulbasaur
Grow your Pop! collection with the latest Pokémon Pop!
who also happens to be a rare Grass- Poison-type.
Train with your Pop! Bulbasaur frequently and this
adorable Pokémon might be your best friend or
maybe just take a nap. Additional Pokémon will
be available every season.
Here's an out-of-box look at Bulbasaur:

Amazon, EntertainmentEarth, and Gamestop have started taking pre-orders for Bulbasaur.

UPDATE: It looks like Bulbasaur should be releasing at Hot Topic on February 27!


Funko also announced a line of figures featuring Pikachu called A Day with Pikachu.
Pokémon fans have a lot to get excited about in the coming months thanks to a special collaboration between Pokémon Center and the collectible-creating experts at Funko. February 13, 2019, will bring the launch of A Day with Pikachu, a new line of figures available at PokemonCenter.com. Then, each month for an entire year, a new themed figure will debut on the site. Each of the 12 figures celebrates the changing of the months and seasons with a unique scene featuring Pikachu. Look for the following figures throughout this year and into 2020:
~A Day with Pikachu: One Lucky Day
~A Day with Pikachu: Rainy Day Pokémon
~A Day with Pikachu: Blooming Curiosity
~A Day with Pikachu: Sweet Days Are Here
~A Day with Pikachu: Sparking Up a Celebration
~A Day with Pikachu: Splashing Away Summer
~A Day with Pikachu: Charged Up for Game Day
~A Day with Pikachu: Surprises to Fall For
~A Day with Pikachu: Completely Thank-Full
~A Day with Pikachu: A Cool New Friend
~A Day with Pikachu: Ringing In the Fun
~A Day with Pikachu: Surprising Weather Ahead

The "A Day with Pikachu" figure will retail for $14.99 USD (plus tax and shipping if applicable), and the placeholder link is already up. Plus, there's also a Periscope video by Funko showcasing both of these figures!

What do guys think!

[Potential spoiler about upcoming Pokemon Pops...]
There is also a rumor/a leak floating around that more Pokemon Pops could be coming soon. Listings for Squirtle, Charmander, Meowth, Mewtwo, and a Chase were found in a store's inventory system. The store was not identified, and the image was found on Instagram. Please take this with a grain of salt. There is really no way to confirm if these are going to happen until Funko makes an official announcement. I put this as a spoiler since they may or may not be made.

Looking for Information

Hi Pkmncollectors,

I bought this lovely little pokemon bento set at a teeny tiny comic convention a couple of years ago. I use it regularly and recently decided that I wanted to find some more pieces from the series. The only problem is I can't find anything about this set. Anyone recognize them? I'd love to buy more if anyone wants to sell.
