Pojo's Pokemon News
Loretta's Toy News -
January 6, 2006

The new (Feb 2006/#130) issue of _Inquest Gamer_ features a 1/2 page article (no pix, oddly) on the upcoming Pokemon USA release of a Pokemon Trading Figure game in Europe and Australia. We've mentioned this game before; now the well-known gaming magazine points out what we were wondering all along--why no U.S. release?

http://www.pokemon-figures.com/

The Heroclix-style figures are being produced via Kaiyodo, which also produced 3 sets of figures for Tomy over the last 2 years. I originally procured most of the set released in 2004; I was only able to snag a little over half from the 2nd/3rd concurrent sets (trading figures--i.e., you don't know what figure is in the box, and these didn't come cheap...). A U.K. collector has 11 of first set posted on e-Bay; Tomy pulled the pictures/Japanese instructions from their site (or at least I cannot locate the info at this point, it is in Japanese).

Also in the new _Inquest_ is a full page ad for the new Legend Maker TCG expansion slated for next month pre/release. Mew is the star!

Lastly, Target has 2005 Pokemon toys/games marked down, many 75% off this week, if you can find anything left on the clearance rack.

TGIF! If you're in the mid-Ohio area, here's an event for the weekend, altho' a bit pricey IMHO:

Many of the dealers slated

(http://forums.ohayocon.com/viewtopic.php?t=1105) had at least some Poke-goodies last year; I hope this holds true again and mebbe IF I bite the bullet and pay the IMHO exorbitant Sat.-only fee, I might find something........... :)
