Good Smile Company revealed the next Pokemon Nendoroid, and it is a figure of Pokemon Sword and Shield’s Raihan. He’s expected to release in early 2022, though only the January 2022 Japanese release date was announced. He’ll cost ¥6,700 in Japan. His US price point wasn’t announced.
As far as Nendoroids go, Raihan is a fairly typical example of one. He’ll have three face plates. He’s smiling in two, though in one his eyes are closed. In the third, he’s winking. Duraludon can also be posed. For example, its mouth can open. There is also a Rotom Phone for selfies. When someone gets the figure from the Pokemon Center, they’ll get a second Rotom Phone with a different expression.
Here’s a better look at the new Raihan figure.
Raihan will be the second Pokemon Sword and Shield. The first was Marnie. She arrived alongside her Morpeko.
It will be the second Good Smile Company Raihan figure, though. Back in December 2020, the company revealed a figma of him. It will launch around September 2021.
The Pokemon Raihan Nendoroid will be sold exclusively through the online Pokemon Center store. It is expected to ship in January 2022 in Japan. If it follows the pattern of other Nendoroids, it will appear in North America in February 2022.
