The Pokemon Center in Japan opened pre-orders for a life-sized Lucario plush. The poseable plush stands at around 120 cm tall (about 47 inches) and will cost ¥46,200 (about $400). Pre-orders will last until December 16, 2021, and the plush will ship sometime in May 2022. [Thanks, PokeJungle!]
The Lucario plush will measure around 120 cm (~47 inches) tall up to its ears and 43 cm wide (~16 inches). While made mostly of polyester and polyurethane foam, the plush weighs a surprising 4kg. Both the limbs and tail have plastic parts that allow you to bend and pose them freely. The plush also seems to stand on its own using its two legs and tail.
Pre-orders for the Lucario plush will close early if stocks are depleted. Currently, the Pokemon Center online store only ships to locations in Japan. There is currently no word on whether the plush will be available in North America or European regions.
