Reshiram is one of the newest legendary Pokemon to hit the series, and it has taken the world by storm. Reshiram stands at 10’06” tall, and weighs over 700 pounds. It is also the only Fire/Dragon dual type to exist, making it very unique! It was revealed on both the English and Japanese sites back on May 28th, 2010. Since the release of Black and White, the Pokemon Centers in Japan held nothing back, as a huge mass of merchandise flew into stores.
The first official piece of merchandise Reshiram got was the Pokemon Center Plush. Being 13″ inches tall, this gorgeous plush is one of the Center’s finest. It very detailed, the tail rings and eyes especially. And of course, it is super huggable! It, along with the other 5th generation Pokemon Center plush also got brand new tags as well.
They’ve also released many figures. Specifically, they’ve started a line of new cell phone straps figures. They have two different versions, one having a thick plastic strap with the name of the Pokemon on it, and the other just has a simple string. The figure is the same though, and very detailed and painted well. It can clip on to keys, phones, backpacks, or anything really. My favorite figure by far though, is the Takara Tomy large move-able figure. It is indeed a very large figure, and is well painted and detailed. It is perfect for sitting on a desk, in a display case, or playing with! They’ve also released two different TOMY figures. The first one is a standard pose of Reshiram, while the other MC+ addition is Reshiram in overdrive mode. Its tail is ablaze and it looks ready for battle. Both TOMY’s are lovely figures, and fairly inexpensive if you are on a budget. Another figure I can recommend is the Zukan figure. Zukan are 1/40th scaled figures of the actual Pokemon. All 5th generation Pokemon have bright purple bases. Reshiram is beautifully detailed, and will make an impression in any collection!
Straying away from figures, the B&W TCG set has just been released, and I must say they are amazing. The entire card designs have been completely revamped for 5th generation. The holographic-ness of each card is striking, with a bright shine to every card. Reshiram also got a super rare card, very similar to a legend card, but better. You have a chance of pulling one in every Pokemon Black booster pack. Reshiram also has many school supplies, such as journals, clear files, towels, and many other flat type items. A Pokedoll, Banpresto plush, and many more figures are on the way as well. Hopefully if you are a fan, or planning on collecting Reshiram, this helped you out. Happy collecting.. Pokemon Store Uk
