I got the "I ❤️ Marine" Marill today! He's a tiny bit larger than the rest of my Marill family, but not so big that he doesn't look good sitting together with them.
Here's a closeup picture of him:
He's a great little guy, but his fur pile is kinda long, so he looks almost wet... I guess that goes with the "marine" theme of the series... One thing I'm not crazy about is that his ears are this printed-on plastic, rather than being embroidered. He's also my first plush from Banpresto; I'm not sure if that's typical of their plush.
But I do love his little arms, soft puffy tail, and cheeky smile!
One more thing I have just got to yell about... I commissioned ebonykatt.ami on Instagram to make a custom Marill for me, and oh my God look what a good job she did.
I just think she's so beautiful! She's shipping from Australia to the US, so I don't know when I'll get her, but I am SO excited!
