Bandai opened pre-orders for Pokemon Scale World figures of Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza in Japan. The figures are expected to be finished and shipped in late 2021. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]
The Japanese press release claimed that Groudon and Kyogre’s figures will have the largest volume in the series to date. These figures will 1/20 scale replicas, compared to the actual Pokemon sizes. The press release also shared a photo showing how a 1/20 Groudon looks like on an adult’s hands.
The Groudon figure will launch first in Japan in October 2021. Kyogre and Rayquaza will follow the next month in November 2021. All three figures will come with a piece of soda-flavored chewing gum. Rayquaza’s figure will also have a cloud-shaped pedestal to depict it flying in the sky.
Pre-orders of these Pokemon Scale World figures are immediately available on the Premium Bandai website. Bandai added that the figures might also be available at other storefronts and internationally outside Japan.
Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza are the main legendary Pokemon in the Hoenn region. They are featured as mascots of the third-generation Pokemon games on Game Boy Advance: Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Remakes of the generation, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, appeared on Nintendo 3DS in November 2014.
All legendary Pokemon mentioned above are also available in Pokemon Sword and Shield, the newest eighth-generation titles immediately available on the Nintendo Switch, through The Crown Tundra expansion.
