Jakks Umbreon

Hey collectors! I got a much anticipated package in today. Also my brother was kind enough to lend me his computer charger real quick, so I'll make this a kinda quick post but I wanted to share -

Well just last week I was like many folks, assuming that this line just was never going to happen. "American" companies for whatever reason don't have great track records with Umbreon ;__;

But then this guy appeared on ebay, and I was very excited. Lets see some pics!


His line up-

First thing I noticed, in true Jakks "derp" fashion-

One of his paws are round, and dont have the toes sculpted well ^^;;;; Yay Jakks.

Have some shots-

He can stand~

Now I mentioned earlier that I wasn't super shocked when the release came and went with no sign of Umbreon.

You see Hasbro had two Umbreon figures slated as well.

One some people have gotten their hands on somehow is the V trainer -

It has been pictured on backs of boxes, but reportdly never turned up for sale, along with its partner Charmander. Several of these have turned up in bootleg sellers lots, but no one is really certain where they came from.

The other one -

Hasbro's figure that was supposed to be part of their 2002 line up. It was never released, and has not been seen out of these 2002 toy fair photos.

Not sure why companies tend to skip over Umbreon but there you have it :(

I am just glad he was released, despite his derpyness ^^;; Its something about Jakks you just gotta love lol.

The new line up~

Have some Umbreon Figures!

Yess Jakks Umbreon is the largest Umbreon figure to date :D

With some "relatives"

Hope you enjoyed the post :D
