Hi all! Welcome to another edition of Collector’s Corner! This time we’ll take a look at the plethora of new Eeevee and Eeveelution plush that are coming out in the next few months. We’ll also take a look at the Pokemon merchandise that is currently available in America and what we can expect for the future.
Pokemon Center Eevee promotion
Pokemon Center has announced an Eevee Promotion to begin in November. This promotion will feature Eevee and each of its evolutions. Merchandise includes plush, bowl and plate sets, tumblers, place mats, coasters, pouches, blankets and clearfiles. Eevee and its evolutions are perhaps the most popular Pokemon in the world so these items are likely to go fast! These products will be released in Pokemon Centers across Japan beginning November 10th. A second wave of items including deck boxes and files will be available on November 23rd. For more images, visit the official website.

TOMY to release Eeveelution plush and more
Finally, images of TOMY Eeveelution plush have surfaced. It seems that all the major toy companies are jumping on Eevee’s popularity! As well as the Eeveelutions pictured, TOMY will be releasing Eevee and Riolu plush in their usual line during October. Finally, TOMY will be releasing a talking Eevee plush. These are all due sometime in the next couple of months. Eevee overload!

Nagoya Pokemon Center 10th anniversary celebration
A number of promotional goods have been released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Nagoya Pokemon Center. A special Pikachu plush, metal pins, clearfiles and handkerchiefs with unique art are available.
North American kiosk stock update
TPCi currently runs a Pokemon kiosk in the Northgate Mall, Seattle, Washington. The kiosk includes Pokemon figures, TCG, games and plush. It is also one of the few places outside of Japan where Pokedolls can be purchased. Recently the kiosk has been re-releasing a lot of old and rare Pokedolls, including Charmander and Squirtle. The stock has changed again, and this time Leafeon and Glaceon are available! If you can’t get to the kiosk to pick them up, keep an eye on eBay and pkmncollectors for your chance to get hold of these rare dolls! Meloetta, Keldeo, Timburr, Sawk and Throh are also new to the machine.
We recently revealed that TOMY International would be taking over the Pokemon merchandise license outside Japan at the end of the year. Already they have announced plans for plush and figure lines. TOMY International’s takeover will hopefully mean a better distribution of Pokemon merchandise worldwide! What do you want to see from TOMY International? Let us know by leaving a comment!
