Im making this cause there wasn’t one and I found something interesting in Target’s data regarding a 6” two pack that has Charizard and Mewtwo listed at 34.99. No pictures yet. But it could be the rumored Select Series Mewtwo other anons have been talking about.

Also some stores seem to have a 1/25 release date for Typhlosion.
>>
Here is the DPCI.
>>
Thanks for the new info and DPCI on that Charizard/Mewtwo pack. Wonder why it's called "Trainer Team Series"? My mind first goes to a human trainer and a pokemon.

We do have another Pokemon General going already though.
>>
>>10218801
At that price, I'm worried it'll be the Select Charizard with the 4" Mewtwo... $35 seems way too good to be true for two 6" figures that retail for $22 each
>>
>>10218798
Link to the last thread?
>>
>>10218827
Maybe it's Mewtwo with a clone Charizard repaint.
>>
>>10218892
That would be neat and the name would fit. Maybe more trainers to come, then.

>>10218835
Could you imagine? Mewtwo is even supposed to be bigger. I'd like to hope that neither is not a Select figure (because then what mess would future 'trainer' figures look like) but if it is then ideally it'd be Charizard that is the 4.5". Once upon a time 2-packs were essentially value packs, so maybe they're treating it like that?

Also could you imagine they just double the size of the current packaging? These are some of the biggest toy boxes per price at retail, I'm not sure they're going to want to keep carrying them because of how much space they take up.
>>
>>10218835
The price for something like this is usually close to the sum of the figures so a Select + a battle feature figure seems to be roughly the $35. One of them has to be a Select if its listed as 6" so its either big Charizard + small Mewtwo or a new Mewtwo figure + battle feature Charizard. Select Charizard was one of those figures at the original $20 price initially so maybe they could both be Selects and this is a sort of value pack but this seems rather unlikely.
>>
What's the best way to order stuff from the Japanese pokemon center?
>>
>>10218965
Yeah, seems way too unlikely to both be $22 Selects. One Select with one 4.5" seems more like it sadly. $22+$12= $34 which is close enough to the $34.99 price. Like the anon above said, I hope Mewtwo is the Select and Charizard is a 4.5".
>>
>>10218798

But considering it’s the only decently scaled Typhlosion ever I’ll have to buy it.

How long has Select Moltres been out? Seems a bit rare and only on amazon at a jacked up price.

Went ham and splurged on the line, ordered Articuno, Charizard, Zapdos and Rayquaza. Greninja is reduced at my local but he's a bit big and didn't look that amazing, Lucario looks like it could be good but again, too big and didn't he get a small capsule figure that could fit in with figma trainers? either that or the Pokken figure look like they would work better for me.
>>
I only want one figure of my starter for each generation. Still missing a good feraligatr, sceptile, and now Skellidirge. I doubt we'll get any of them anytime soon.


I ordered a Feraligatr from Japan but it never shipped because of COVID. Fuck them fags for stealing my money.
>>
>>10220207
>How long has Select Moltres been out?
September. It and Lucario+Zapdos were $11 each for almost all of December at Target in the US.

Lucario and Greninja are the worst figures of the line with poorly designed articulation and they are too large to scale with the others.
>>
>>10220448
>Lucario and Greninja are the worst figures of the line with poorly designed articulation and they are too large to scale with the others.
I'd love if the line could do smaller scale guys justice, making the figure of guys like Lucario smaller and giving them tons of accessories and swappable parts would be best I feel.
>>
>>10218798
If this is coming out on the 25th then the early Jazwares reviewer guy should probably get his hands on this pretty soon.
>>
>>10220485
>making the figure of guys like Lucario smaller and giving them tons of accessories and swappable parts would be best
Pretty much what everyone except for people at Jazwares agree with. They're seeming to stick with the 'Make the figure as big as it can to fill the package' mentality which is fucking dumb.

>>10220518
Those estimated delivery dates are just that. Estimates. No telling when we may start to see Typhlosion but hopefully by mid February it'll be in some stores or online.
>>
Who's looking forward to Samurott and Dragapult? I really want to see Dragapult better, I hope his head can look straight up like Zapdos. Samurott isn't a favourite but I'll probably still get him, I hope he looks good standing on his hind legs.
>>
>>10221873
Can now confirm a date of 1-25 also for Dragapult at random target stores. I’m am very excited about dragapult.

I cannot find Samurott in Targets system anymore for some reason. But Decidueye and Suicune are still in there.
>>
>>10222447
Seems like as of now, Decidueye and Suicune seem to the most likely figures that make up the 'wave' after this 3-figure Dragapult 'wave'.

>>10223240
>to buy a 3D Printer and invest the time
It's not just owning and learning to use the 3D printer. It's learning 3D modeling to sculpt and add joints. Then being handy for cleaning up and sanding plus assembling all the parts. Then the skill to paint neatly. It's a lot involved just to make some mons for the shelf. So annoying when anons just come in and say "Make the toy yourself"
>>
>>10223385
I got a partner for the 3D aspect of it at least. I’m I’ve a third of what I need to get the project started. But it’s so many variables like you said. And my life is very busy right now.
>>
Are there any articulated Mewtwos like the 20-25 Select Charizard? Saw one going for 75-200 which looked nice but that's way more than I wanna pay.
>>
>>10225018
Well if anon's leak here >>10218801 is anything to go by then maybe. We've seen old listings but those haven't turned up yet, so who really knows. That said Mewtwo is popular and will almost undoubtedly show up at some point.
>>
>>10218798
He looks so much like a penis now.
>>
>>10225092
I'm afraid that's just your wonderful little imagination running wild.
>>
>>10225066
We don't know if the Mewtwo or the Charizard will be the articulated one though, huh? Any chance they'd both be?
>>
>>10225138
There's always a chance, but the price leans towards no. Mewtwo is larger than Charizard, so if we do get a new Select Mewtwo with the 4.5" Charizard they'd probably actually scale somewhat well. This whole line has basically "wait and see" because we really don't know a whole lot about what's going on or what's been going on (like with the dropped listings).
>>
>>10225193
A Mewtwo taller than the select Charizard sounds like it'd be pretty big. Or are you talking about a different Charizard?
>>
>>10225238
I'm talking about the 4.5" Charizard (as in if we get a new Select Mewtwo to go along with the 4.5" fire breathing gimmick Charizard in this 2-pack). I'd also expect a Mewtwo Select to be taller than Select Charizard, just like how Lucario or Greninja are taller. Charizard has girth to him, but not all that much height.
>>
>>10225279
Why not just have the Mewtwo by itself? I already have the better Charizard.
>>
>>10225289
Maybe there will be one, we're just referring to the supposed "Trainer 2-pack" that's listed in Target's system.
>>
>>10225289
Because they know you'll but a more expensive two pack just to get one figure, duh. I bet if Mewtwo is the 6" Select in that pack, then they'll also release is in the main Select line later on.
>>
>>10225474
Is the line even selling that well? Seems like every release goes on clearance or piles up.
>>
>>10225487
I dunno but I wager certain ones sell well. Charizard, Lucario, the real popular ones. Mewtwo would sell well too I wager.
>>
>>10225487
It's their stupid release model like we've talked about many times. The stores get solid cases of each figure. So depending on what your particular store's buyer orders, your location could up with like 12+ of the same figure if they order a couple cases leaving them to all rot on shelves. I'm sure they'd all sell better in mixed assortments so there was always a variety on shelves at the same time
>>
>>10225764
its so weird that this seems to be the case in the US, atleast where i live we get mixed cases? i always see the whole wave on shelves ever since lucario/zapdos released. and im sure many stores got zard and articuno together here.
for moltress there was always only a couple mixed with the other re-releasing figures that were on the back.

Dragapult gets points for having articulated tiny appendages. The tail is a wire. The knees have 20 degrees of motion. The sculpt is amazing but everyone will have this thing in the same pose so it may as well have been a statue.
>>
>>10235758
that tail placement, reminds me a lot of great porn now I have to masterbate againa after salivating over this great design!
>>
Typhlosion has toe articulation in case you want to put him in all fours mode
>>
Unfortunately he can only look down or to the side so its kind of pointless.
>>
>>10235779
He's suffering
>>
His default pose looks good, so thats the one to stick with.
>>
Overall dragapult wins for crazy sculpt. Just be grateful someone is making these one off molds. Most toy companies wouldn’t bother.
>>
>>10235758
Can the Dreepy rotate or come out? Also kind of a question for anons in general about the tail, is that type of material good for longevity if you pose it alot? I think articuno had a similar tail but I didn't get that one.
>>
>>10235807
No. Its just a wire
>>
>>10235730
Thanks for all the pics anon. Both look pretty good, though some of the joints are cut in pretty ugly. If they'd work in making joints look nicer and even going the pinless route, these would be stellar.

I notice Dragapult's package has a "Only at Target" sticker on it. Does Typhlosion's box too? I remember Dragapult showed up in Gamestop's system as an exclusive last year but never arrived there obviously. Now Gamestop seems to be exiting the action figure selling game, so they likely cancelled it and Target picked up the exclusivity. Hopefully that's it and not the entire line becoming a Target exclusive.
>>
>>10235844
It is not target exclusive. It is carried by barnes and noble and even cracker barrel. Gamestop is not getting out of the action figure game.
>>
It doesn’t say target exclusive. It says trainer team series.

Come on, I can read. This sticker.

>>10235848
It does say Only at Target, and this was slated as a Gamestop exclusive for last summer that never happened, so it does check out. And Gamestop IS seriously downsizing the amount of figures they carry. They stopped carrying Marvel Legends Exclusives this year as well if the rumors are true, which they seem to be so far.
>>
Mewtwo when or no date yet?
>>
>>10235898
Missed it my bad. The other picture has them both with the sticker. Gamestop is still carrying tons of stuff. They are probably just dropping Hasbro because they are jewish and overpriced.

>>
>>10235793
can you show us a comparison between them and charizard ? and maybe other jazwares figures
>>
>>10236095
Typholision looks like it may be spot on, but Dragapult looks pretty huge. I'm curious to see how the Dreepy battle figure compares to it. That damn thing is so massive though. It's almost like Jazwares intentionally screws with the sizes of the figures to make them scale as poorly as possible lol
>>
>>10235698
That’s not a particularly high bar.
>>
>>10236459
Dreepy is unsuualy small. Unless they made like 3 itd never have really worked. Same as Pokemon like Tynamo, Diglett, Pawmi, etc.
>>
Ok so I think the Trainer Team two pack with Mewtwo and Charizard has to be 2 of the articulated Selects. The battle figures and articulated Selects have yet to be packed together. The Charmander glossy evolution pack uses the battle feature figure. None of the pamphlets included with the battle figures advertise the Selects or their commercials. They basically have treated these as two different lines that don't interact.

As for the $34.99 price, with how often they re-wave Charizard its not unreasonable for them to "discount" it at $15 while the Mewtwo would be $20. This would be the first multi pack with Selects so putting Charizard there would make sense. Maybe one day there'll be a triple bird pack, as long as its not glossy lol.
>>
>>10236529
I want all of them
>>
>>10236551
I'd be ok with this as I wouldn't mind an extra Charizard. Unless we're monkey pawed and it's just selects Charizard with battle Mewtwo. I'd be pissed.
>>
>>10236551
Any idea when it may release? Will it be hard to preorder?

Is the shf Mewtwo any good? Kinda pricey now though. What's its scale with select Charizard?
>>
>>10236551
>As for the $34.99 price, with how often they re-wave Charizard its not unreasonable for them to "discount" it at $15 while the Mewtwo would be $20.

You may be right, but that seems very unlikely IMO. Why would toy company EVER do us a favor and sell at a drastically discounted cost? And the MSRP is now 21.99 each, not 19.99 anymore. I just don't see them offering two 21.99 figures for 34.99 but we will see. It still seems more likely that they're going to use the 4.5" Charizard since the MSRP for those 4.5" is now 11.99.
>>
>>10236632
A little pricey, but honestly it's not much better than the Tomy 5" one that's nearly identical in size. Both scale decently with Select Charizard but are probably a bit small. Why not just wait to see what this inevitable Jazwares one looks like?

Mewtwo's a head taller than D-Arts Zard, and Select Zard is a head taller than it too, so I'd say about same height?
>>
>>10236668
The main point is that the battle figures and Selects have not once been packed together. The description says Select 6", Super-Articulated Figure 2-Pack and Trainer Team Series (which we've now seen on Tyhplosion and Dragapult) all of which suggest there isn't a battle feature figure. Also for some reason Dragapult is still $19.99 >>10235667, maybe the ones developed earlier have the old pricing.
>>
>>10236680
I understand your point, I still don't see Jazwares and Target handing over such a discount to the customer. $34.99 for an item that totals $41.98 separately (if you count Char at 20) is way too nice for them

Remember, they are charging $27.99 for a 3" Raichu, 2" Pikachu, and 2" Pichu just two pegs down lol
>>
>>10236670
Oh I am waiting to see what that one looks like. I was just seeing what other options there were. Was pretty impressed with the Charizard considering the price point so it got me wanting a Mewtwo. I understand why people get annoyed at all the merch and popularity Charizard and Mewtwo get, but for me they've always been staples of the franchise like Pikachu. More like symbols of the generation I guess.
>>
>>10236503
While that's true, it's still a good design in its own right.

There's no way that's true, the cuts are indented. If they were just swivels they'd just be cut.
>>
>>10238975
>im still curious why these were chosen.
The Legends Arceus starter lineup, obviously. Typhlosion and Samurott in this wave and Decidueye found in Target's system for the next wave. Supposedly it was also supposed to be int his wave but it looks like Gamestop cancelled their order for the exclusive Dragapult and that's why Decidueye got bumped out of this wave.
>>
>>10238995
>>10239067
I also can't believe those neck segments don't have anything aside from rotation... Even if they don't have true hinge joints, they must surely have a ball socket type thing in each one, right?
>>
>>10239071
>The Legends Arceus starter lineup, obviously.
I don't believe that. It was SV that really brought in all the long lasting hype, and Arceus was practically a memory
>>
>>10239091
What? You do know it takes like well over a year to develop toys, right? and Jazwares has shown they are even slower than that. The PLA starter trio is 100% intentional.
>>
>>10239093
Yeah but we're all talking about the SV starters, Tandemaus and the Tinkaton these days. Back in the Arceus days, there wasn't really anyone hyping Samurott nor anything. They weren't in the anime or a popularity poll.
>>
>>10239097
>Tandemaus and the Tinkaton these days
And you'll get those in 1~2 years like the Arceus crew.
>>
>>10239097
Brand synergy my guy, every media giant wants it. I wouldn't even be surprised if they were encourages by TPCi to choose those PLA starters too.
>>
>>10239150
See the weird thing is why didn't they do the actual Hisuian forms though? As of now we have zero US merch for the Hisui mons i believe and it would have been awesome having them make some in the select line.

Actually i can perfectly see them making these "retro" or old fashioned packaging for Hisui mons which would have been so cool. But of course they wont do that because the brand standard is those red/white swoopy looking packages

>See the weird thing is why didn't they do the actual Hisuian forms though?
Yes, because developing figures takes around a year at the minimum, and much longer for Jazwares. TPCi doesn't let the licensees see new designs before the public first so if they had waited to see the Hisuian forms, we would't be getting them until the end of this year or early next year I bet. They still get the PLA tie in with the starters this way even though not in their Hisuian forms.

Does Jazwares ever do Q and A? I would love to ask them if they can do trainers in the select line.
>>
>>10240273
At events they talk to people, and they occasionally do podcasts, though I think the last one was some time ago.
>>
>>10239740
It won't show up on the website for a while. If you have an employee run the DPCI on one of their devices it will pull up.
>>
>>10240280
Nah, they've done what, one podcast in the 3 yeas they've had the Pokemon license? And no formal online Q&A.

Just like an anon asked in the other thread, I bet there's also about a zero percent chance we get a blurry photo leak of this week's UK ToyFair display like we did last year.
>>
>>10240578
I think they've done 2? And with some lesser known podcasts (I guess none of the bigger toy personalities care enough about Pokemon to do a show). Idk if there are big Pokemon podcasts or yt or twitch shows, but that seems like a decent audience to try to tell about your products too.

Wasn't there also some of their designers on Twitter? I doubt they could say much but it could be worth a try.

>>10241052
>>
>>10241050
I saw a video stating this and it's just such an odd omission. No extra parts required.
>>
>>10241045
That's to allow the Dreepy heads to rotate though, right?

>>10241050
>>10241068
WOW. That's some stupid ass designing. Like you said, literally just required them to put a peg hole in the base of the head where that neck disc is going in. Literally wouldn't have cost them any extra parts or anything. Jazwares continues to make some very baffling decisions while designing the articulation on these.
>>
>>10241053
Nice group! There's actually quite a bit more 1/12 scale Galar figures too aside from those between Tomy, Re-Ment, and other companies. Eldegoss, Gossifleur, Milcery, Alcremie, Rookidee, Wooloo, Skwovet, Raboot, Rolycoly, Applin, Hatenna, Snom, Dreepy and Kubfu too. Plus the 4.5" Inteleon but he's the most blatantly out of scale of all those listed.
>>
>>10241053
Beautiful setup, Anon!
>>
>>10241102
Yes the Dreepy heads kinda rotate but hit the Dragapults head.

>>10241105
Thank you for that list anon.

Can someone who has Typhlosion show me how much he can bend his neck and stomach forwards and to the sides? I'm hoping I can at least get him to look dynamic and cool rather than just slight variations of standing there

I also don't see why they had to cut the seam right through the yellow belly part. If they had done it like this along the edge of that, the seam would be hidden better, plus that would only require one paint application to the yellow belly part since it would all be on the same piece, instead of being split across two different parts that each need paint. Seam on the back side could be the opposite shape on the opposite side to balance it out and maintain the same structural balance, especially during the sonic welding of the halves together. Whyyyy
>>
>>10241102
Ironically the Dreepy heads can swivel and Dragapult can't. If the hinge just lead to a ball it'd have worked fine. Same for Typhlosion's neck. I find it hard to believe actually. Just seem like such glarin omissions.
>>
>>10241145
I still don't believe that Typhlosion's neck segments don't allow for any swivel motion. I just can't fathom how they could omit that especially after chopping up the figure as much as they did. Truly amateur hour over there at Jazwares if they did these stupid ass choices.

I like that they do different poses. I love Gengar, but there's only so many times you can display "standing upright with arms at the side" figures of it. I have the transluscent Select and the battle feature figure, so this and the Gigantamax gashapon figure were a nice change of pace.
>>
>>10241849
A Pokémon Center without a human attending it's kinda weird. I wonder why with all it's years mega hasn't been able to do human minifigures. Maybe Tpci won't allow it.
>>
>>10242027
Chancey can run it, it's ok. Maybe it's a scaling thing. Look how big Pikachu is, a regular mini figure would just be a bit taller than it, and around as wide.

He's barely the same size of this figma which is one of the smallest female figma I own. Mewtwo it's supposed to be 6' 07''.
Of course it's very well made and articulated, but still tiny. Not even the Tomy one suffices.

I still haven't seen enough size comparisons or a thorough review of the joints to make up my mind.

Did he?
Stores in my area still have Articunos at full price.
Recently I've hit up all the targets in an hour span away from my house and have seen all three birds on shelf. With a rare green boy and lucario.
It must be different regions of the country having clearances I guess.

>>10244199
You must not look online ever. Articuno was on clearance for a while and Target had Zapdos, Lucario and Moltres for $11 for like a month and a half leading up to Xmas.
>>
>>10244223
I'm wondering too...But I suspect it has something to do with Dragapult really only ever needing to be in like 2 poses. Floating is normal, and looking forward as if flying through the air. And it looks like his head can't look forward far enough for that when in a laying position, so the super articulation is kinds pointless on him IMO.

Just kind of a strange choice for a 6" Select when it would have been better as a 4.5" action feature one
>>
>>10244191
Only in Murrica, where they're somehow the hardest to find yet always go on discount.
>>
>>10244326
Maybe they decided on the 6 inch line because of size? I thought he was supposed to be a small pokemon but he's apparently 3 meters and towers over humans so they figured it would be better to put him at Select size/scale instead of 4.5''
>>
>>10244326
>>10244223
because I think its gonna go on clearance
>>
>>10244389
so you're not actually saying it's bad, but that you do believe it'll shelfwarm just like the other guys. I certainly don't doubt that, but id like to see how long a NEW character sticks around
>>
This articulated Haunter that came with Charmander and Appletun is actually really cool. Should I put some glue at the base of the stand for the head or is it sturdy enough?
>>

>>
>>10244483
>statueshit
Fuck off
>>
>>10244382
3 meters from the tip of the tail to the top of the head. Snake-like ones are measured like that remember. So while floating, the butt-to-head measurement won't be 3 meters. Maybe like 1.5-2 or so. So I think it could have easily been better off as a 4.5" figure.
>>
>>10244572

Articuno was on clearance for a while but i guess stores maybe got more stock in? and those *aren't* on clearance which is weird.

It and Greninja were shuttled off to Ollies (at least maybe on the east coast here) right before christmas and target themselves had moltres, zapdos and lucario i believe on some sort of clearance, probably just to clear the shelves
>>
I vaguely remember the original Charizard Select in 2021 was some sort of Target exclusive first, did it also have the Target mark like Dragapult and Typhlosion? Does being exclusive even mean anything for these figures?
>>
>>10245696
They were "first at Target", not proper exclusives, no stickers. These stickers are new to the line, so we'll have to wait and see what happens.
>>
>>10245696
don't they all end up at Amazon?
>>
>>10244483
God I fucking love Scale World but shit is so expensive now, I miss the big region sets, I can't buy these 1 character sets
>>
>>10245130
Why do they hide this shit? Why not show us what the fuck we're getting?
>>
>>10245721
Correct. Charizard was released like 2-3 months earlier at Target than everywhere else. More like a timed exclusive. Not a true retailer exclusive. The fact that these newest figs have the Target exclusive sticker on them makes me worry Amazon/Gamestop/other stores won't be getting them which would not be a good sign. Lines that sell very well do not end up as retailer exclusives.
>>
>>10245843
Well that's not great but I'd imagine not all figures will be exclusives. Dragapult was probably always intended to be an exclusive cause people found the Gamestop leak. This might also explain how its still $19.99, it was always meant to be that price. Need to see where things go from here.

I just love the fact that an evolution family of figma, moncolle and plamo all scale together so perfectly while being from different lines/companies.
>>
How have they not made a Cynthia figma yet
>>
>>10248302
That's how I've been collecting for years.
>>
>>10248539

>>
Is this a shiny figure or is it the normal version. I can’t tell bc of the lighting

I went with my son to see what was up. There was some obese childless man screaming about how he had a gengar tattoo and how dare they only have two and not sell one to him. They look like they are too fat to use as pillows. I don't really get it. But they sold out fast. If this is important to someone I would recommend the Japanese one that eats your head.

ty anon. those links didn't work but i was able to find them

Sweet, thanks for the heads up. Ordered them both!

Pretty disappointing to see reviews saying how badly the articulation is designed on both and how some essential joints offer virtually no useful movement, but I'll see for myself. I'm just happy to get a new starter to replace an ancient figure on the shelf.

does the head articulate?
>>
>>10250400
Only up and down tilt. No side to side tilt, rotation, or turning or any kind. Which is absolutely stupid of them but it wouldn't be Jazwares if they weren't fucking up simple articulation.

How many trainers has Scale World made? I can't find a proper catalogue online
>>
>>10251653
I quickly counted them up on MF and it came out as 45 human figures made, or upcoming. There might be a few duplicates in there; like Green in different outfits/ages.

why wont they make more articulate trainers
>>
>>10253272
Figma does that. Tomy used to with the Ash and Serena figs, but they seem to have moved away from that. Making articulated figures is WAYYYY more expensive to do than static figs without articulation. I shudder the think of how much new Moncolle articulated trainers would cost these days.

>inb4 Jazwares uses its Fortnite experience to make trainers, which kills the line because the actual demand for them isn't equal to the monsters'
>>
>>10253502
honestly the pokemon line in general is really lacking for humans which may not be a huge problem, but it's weird its missing, especially after Japan showed that people love the trainers/gym leaders etc.

not enough to make Figma Bea. I just want Bea. I love Bea
>>
>>10253502
Yeah right, Jazwares can hardly get more than a handful of articulated mons out each year. There's zero chance they start doing trainers. That would only cut into the amount of actual pokemon we get which is already at the absolute bare minimum.
