These items are not very rare, don't have a Grail status or anything. So what's so special about them?
(text and photo heavy, as always)
I was able to pick them up personally! :D
I visited only Pokemon Center in Hiroshima. But when I entered this Pokecenter, I spent my three-day budget in 30 minutes (hahaha, I'm serious).
Before I get to the main point of this post I need to share some photos.
The first shelf I've seen when entering Pokecenter:
Almost every item there was Beast Trio themed. And yes, I bought everything. I regret nothing.
My next step was to search for San-Ei plushes that were annouced in April.
Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! Look at that grumpy Entei! I'm so happy I was able to see Beast Trio merch in Pokemon Center :D
When they were first announced I was really excited not only because Trio is getting a new merch, but also their release date was planned a few weeks before my trip to Japan :D
I don't have much more photos from the Pokemon Center - I was focused on not missing a single Beat Trio item.
I went to cash register with two baskets of Trio merch. During my visit they held a Bewear themed lottery. I spent so much I got six lottery tickets :D
I got four stickers (third prize), one clearfile (second prize) and...
...first prize tote bag :D
Okay, but time for the main purpose of this post: new merch!
San-Ei Raikou, Entei and Suicune plushes! I love them - they look cute and majestic at the same time.
I love the chubby Entei face, the back of Raikou neck-cloud that awkwardly stands up and how long Suicune face is. They have a special place in my collection and I'll love them forever. <3
Pins and stamp set. Unfortunately Suicune was out of stock :( I got two sets of pins - one for collection and one for using.
Stationery! Pencil caps, eraser, ruler and pencils.
Suicune Graphix t-shirt with badge. Stays MIP forever.
Movie clearfile (front and back pictured)
Shitajiki (pencil boards)
Shitajiki and note (I love how Entei is awkwardly put upside-down in this art xD )
Stickers. The left sheet is glittery, rainbow-y and with Beast Trio. That means it's perfect.
The coolest pencil case ever.
Some more notebooks (it looked like I was making the back-to-school shopping xD )
Beast Trio Get Collection. I got Raikou and Suicune from Pokemon Center, Entei was found by my friend in second-hand anime shop.
I was able to get BOTH Moncolle Get Enteis! But I need to tell you a story about them. During my trip I tried different anime gachas and I got no luck with them, getting characters I don't like. During my shopping in Pokemon Center I took only one bag of Moncolle Get, not really wanting to pull out random Pokemon and then put it on resale. I opened it later an seriously screamed :D I got Entei on first try!
And then, last day I went with my friends to Tokyo Skytree. We bought a bunch of blind-packed anime merch. I got nothing interesting, but my friend opened like five packages only to get my favourite characters. She gave them all to me and opened one last package with Moncolle Get with "well, at least I have a Pokemon for myself". She pulled out shimmery Entei :D (Thank you, I love you <3)
More second-hand finds. Pokemon Model 2000 set is a replcacement for my set with painted eyes - these figures still have their original stickers. Also Suicune from McDonald's - so round and cute.
Misc merch. I couldn't help myself and bought Ho-oh kid. Litten was from Choco egg and charms are from my struggles to get Entei. With no luck :(
And group shoot of Beast Trio merchandise together! Awesome! I'm so happy I was able to get so many items for my collection and I was able to pick them up personally. Plushes and figures are proudly displayed.
I bought fewer items, comparing to last year, but every single item I got helds a special place in my heart and in my collection. I feel extremely grateful tat I was able to visit Japan again, and that I was able to did that during the time when Raikou, Entei and Suicune had new merch again.
Thank you if you have read all of this, I'm so happy I could share my gets with you <3
Also a reminder that my sales post is still open, updated with some new items and with lowered prices.
