First things first...
YO! Omahanime! We're going to
need a scan... a BIG scan. $24.99 will
get ya the new D&P TCG mega gift pack at
Target. This big huge monster size set
has one each of every D&P expansion booster,
SIX foil cards (3 are the D&P starters and 3
are trainers) and 3 collectible coins.
WOW. I guess the other thing I saw
pales in comparison, a blister pack with
Legends Awakened booster, a POP 2-card
booster and a foil Mothim, $4.99 at Target.
Now, while we wait and see about Oma's
scans, I've got some Japanese book news.
I just found an awesome Shogakukan book made
especially for the Shaymin/Giratina
movie! I've enclosed a few pix of the
items I'm discussing. Last year, I
also found a similar book, both of these
around 85 pages, glossy, full-color, about
movie 10. The Darkrai theme
book included information about the prior
movies, it was a celebration of 10-!
There was also a complete Pokedex in the
back! Prior to that, I had found a D&P
Pokedex. Ah, Shogakukan, if only we
had English versions, these books are just
incredible! The Shaymin movie book is
chock full of pictures and information about
the new movie, characters, Pokemon, etc.
Even if I had a scanner, I doubt copyright
would allow me to showcase the glory; but,
I'll give the ISBN #'s in a moment.
The other new item I found was a Coro Coro
Dragon Comic with Red's Clefairy on the
cover accompanied by Shaymin and Giratina--now
that's a recipe for something, if you recall
how bawdy the Coro Coro comic can be!
A reader recently indicated she had ordered
the Shogakukan titles I'd mentioned in a
prior report via Amazon Japan. I'd
love to hear how that worked out and just
how bad the shipping costs were...
Here are the ISBN's for those of you who
have an importer in mind: Shaymin
movie book--ISBN978-4-09-112348-0; Movie 10
book--ISBN978-4-09-112319-0; D&P Pokedex
book--ISBN978-4-09-112303-9; Coro Coro
Dragon Comic Pocket Monsters D&P
I haven't seen any restocking of Jakks plush
in the last few weeks, which is
disappointing for those wanting the newest
wave of toys. I'll keep my eyes open.
Store shelves have been reset, but, items
are slow coming although figures seem to be
coming quicker than plush. And if you
pick up the newest Beckett's 'zine, you can
see a pic of some Japanese Pokemon gum that
comes with a 3D punch out figure--I actually
found the gum in my area about a week before
the 'zine hit my local newsstand and was
happy they had a scan because my camera
could never have captured that detail.
LOL. :) I've walked by the
Dialga/Palkia DS bundle repeatedly,
drooling, and stopped myself from the
temptation as I really need to save for a
*real* PC. ;)
