(Update 2: Thursday, August 11, 2022 20:30 BST) British friends, our time has finally come. If you live in the UK you can get your gloves on Life-size Lucario from the Pokémon Center website for only £360. A bloody bargain for Lucario’s 47 inches, man.
(Update 1: Tuesday, November 23, 2021, 15:15 GMT) In a very welcome surprise, the amazingly plush Lucario will also be available at official Pokémon stores in the US and Canada.
Pre-orders are available now at $419.99, scheduled to ship in April 2022.
Original article (Friday, November 19, 2021, 11:30 GMT): When it comes to Pokémon merchandise, there’s no better place than Japan. In the past, we have seen a large amount Luxurious Snorlax that doubles as a beda wonderful thing human-sized Metapod cocoon that’s perfect for jumping inside and getting upset, and now we have a life-size Lucario that can help you wash it off. It’s just not fair.
Lucario, whose height is exactly 1.2m (its exact measurement in the official Pokédex), is currently pre order on Pokémon’s official Japanese store. They’re made to order for a limited time, but you can only ship them to a Japanese address – if you’re lucky enough to live in Japan, you can order one right now for 46,200 yen (about $405/£302). It’s… expensive, but not as expensive as it can be?
To sell products, or just melt our hearts, The Pokémon Company shared the following images of how you might want to spend your time with Lucario. We have not, and cannot have, but we have loved.
Do you know anyone who lives in Japan? You think you can convince them to keep one of these for you? We could go ahead and move there, to be honest…
