Just in case the bajillion Pokémon Funko Pops weren't quite enough, The Pokémon Company has revealed that a whole new set of Eevee evolution toys is now headed our way, too.
Called 'An Afternoon with Eevee & Friends', the set is a new series of collectable Funko figures which follow the previously released 'A Day with Pikachu' collection. As you'd expect, you'll find Eevee as well as all of its possible evolutions making up the set, although they're all set to be released separately.
They'll be available from the Pokémon Center website, where it says, "You can collect the entire set to complete the scene!" Doing so would cost you $134.91, with each individual figure costing $14.99.
The first figure will be the double Eevee statue, which will release on 18th February. The following figures will release as follows:
- February: Eevee
- March: Vaporeon
- April: Sylveon
- May: Glaceon
- June: Flareon
- July: Espeon
- August: Jolteon
- September: Leafeon
- October: Umbreon
Apparently, quantities will be limited, so make sure to keep an eye on the Pokémon Center's website if you want to secure the entire set. Incidentally, you can also get a Funko Pop Eevee.
We do love the Eevee family. Just getting one wouldn't hurt, right?
I can't believe it's not soulless!
Why does Umbreon gotta be last? D:
Why doesn't the US Pokemon Center website ship to Europe...
For a moment there I thought I would have to buy them all. But they don't ship outside the US so I'm safe.
To me Funko Pops are the poor man's nendoroids and just not at all my style. Since these don't have giant heads and big round black eyes, a full set might actually look pretty neat.
Cute touch that it all fits together! Did the A Day With Pikachu collection do that as well?
@Kangarooskillit The eyes are horrible, other than that I don't hate the look. And by poor man's maybe you mean people that don't have the money to spend $50 plus on toys for their kids. I don't think that's the threshold for poor. Yeah the quality is bad, but at least they are affordable for kids. I don't have any, but I have been tempted because they have characters that you just can't get anywhere else. Like Cabbage Man from Avatar, or Figment from Epcot at Walt Disney World. Yes if other companies made cool toys of these guys I would definitely buy them, and so I understand why others would want to buy Funko Pops of more rare characters.
I'mma snag me a Sylveon. Little bugger is just too cute.
@Cheez It's just a common idiom that I used to help illustrate my point of view. I think you may have taken the phrase too literal. My context here had nothing to do with monetary value. I was talking about the style and design of Funko Pops in general compared to the quality and style of nendoroids.
I love the quality of Funko Pops but I’m not a fan of the blocky designs most of them have. That’s why I love the “A Day with Pikachu” line. I snagged the game day one when I got my new PC and I love it. Might get one of these Eeveeloutions down the road!
I call dibs on the Umbreon lele
@Kangarooskillit I understand. Either way, I would hope something five times the price was of a better quality. That being said, I have a Funko 5 star and a couple of Nendoroids and honestly from more than a few feet away you can't really tell the difference in quality. But, yeah I really dislike the Funko Pops. I wish I liked them because there's many characters I like that they have. But I think the eyes just destroy the design, though seemingly make the eyes the essence of what it is to be a Funko Pop.
@Lalivero it’s for Halloween
Wait, those are from Funko?! You're telling me they actually CAN make nice collectibles?! Then why to they shovel so many of those hideous souls "pops"??? These actually look nice!
notice that they all are related to their month in some way or another:
February: Eevee - a ton of pet holidays, i swear this month is more about pets then it is about Valentines Day...
also National Pokemon Day is on the 20th & if there's any mons that are as much a mascot as Pikachu, it's Eevee alongside Charizard & Meowth.
March: Vaporeon - World Water Day is march 22
April: Sylveon - Easter on the 12th
May: Glaceon - The "Blackthorn Winter" often occurs at the start of April in a mid to northern Europe. march & april also tend be the snowiest in the US.
June: - Flareon when the heat starts to spike & the Summer Solstice begins
July: - Espeon World UFO Day on the 2ed. aliens are often associated with psychic powers & shiny Espeon is a little green cat thing...
on a side note, eevee was based on foggy memory of some creature that Motofumi Fujiwara encountered as a kid and even he doesn't know what it actually was so it & it's evos are in UMA territory as far as their initial basis is concerned
August: Jolteon - Lighthouse day
September: Leafeon - start of the Fall Equinox & to a lesser extent one of the 2 Johnny Appleseed Days which is mostly just eating apples or planting apple trees
October: - Umbreon because it's the one most befitting the Month of Spooky.
Funko can actually make stuff that doesn't look bland and soulless. Pity they got big on the soulless stuff, though, but I support them doing these newer lines. Their Cuphead Vinyl Collectibles are pretty good, too.
