If you've ever wanted a Slowpoke summoning circle or a Slowpoke crown, well then, we have the toy for you. Bandai has revealed it's releasing a plastic Pokémon model for Slowpoke, and it can latch onto other Slowpoke toys by biting their tails.
Shared by PokéJungle on Twitter, the plastic model (from Bandai Spirits via the Bandai Hobby site) is 120mm in length once put together and is slightly curved so that when you attach it to multiple Slowpokes, it will form a circle. It comes with four different eye stickers, so you can give it a handful of different expressions, too. It's pretty adorable, but it's only been announced for Japan so far.
Launching in August 2023, the model will cost around 715 yen, which is around $5.39 USD / £4.41, so it's not expensive at all. That's without shipping or the fact that you might want to buy like, 20 of them to build multiple Slowpoke circles.
Slowpoke is a beloved Pokémon known for its dopey, lazy demeanour and its lovely pink colouring. It also evolves into Slowbro or Slowking, depending on how you evolve it. But, for our money, we love Slowpoke as it is.
The model, however, reminded us of something, and we really had to dig into the memory banks for this one — who remembers The Slowpoke Song? Well, watch the below video and see if you can spot some similarities...
Are you desperate for a Slowpoke circle in your life? Circle around in the comments.
The Slowpoke Caterpillar?
@Ooyah The Slowpoke Centipede!
Haha that's one way to stop the Shellder from biting.
The Slowpoke Caterpie
You know, I would get on their case that something like this should've been released when the original music video came out....but given that it's Slowpoke it's pretty in-character to be fashionably late to a trend in all honesty.
@Ooyah @jolteon23 @Desrever The Slowpoke Venipede!
i wonder how the guy selling slowpoke tails is gonna feel about this
The Slowpoke Ouroboros
Stuff like this never leaves Japan, unless Pokemon Center sells it online for a ridiculous price.
@ComfyAko The Slowoboros.
I'd like a Slowpoke evolution that happens when it's another Slowpoke biting its tail.
@Fizza There’s a significant number of model kit fans and slowpoke fans who are into this though. Not everything has to chase a trend.
Huh, didn't know there was an English version of that song, pretty cool (although I still prefer the original Japanese one)!
Anyway, speaking of cool things, love the upcoming Slowpoke model and especially that you can make the circle with them!
