Collectors who lament always missing out on the hottest new Japanese figures are in luck, because two of the most popular Japanese toy manufacturers are bringing their latest wares to PokemonCenter.com. For the first time ever, fans in the United States will be able to preorder figures via PokemonCenter.com at the same time as their Japanese counterparts. Good Smile, creators of the popular Nendoroid line, and Kotobukiya are both offering their unique takes on Lillie from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and making them available for a limited time.
What does that mean? If you'd like to purchase these fine collectibles, you'll need to put your preorders in soon. These figures are being manufactured to demand, meaning the creators will produce only enough figures to fill the preorder numbers. So if you wait on this preorder, you'll miss out on Lillie for good.
Kotobukiya's 8-inch tall version of Lillie (and her ever-present partner Pokémon Cosmog) is a game-accurate depiction of the character, reflecting her appearance in the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games. The 3.9-inch Nendoroid Lillie with Cosmog, on the other hand, is a smaller, cuter version of the character, complete with interchangeable parts and accessories that allow fans to customize her pose and expression. The PokemonCenter.com version of Nendoroid Lillie includes an exclusive Pokémon Doll that looks adorable!
Lillie is the young woman from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon who acts as Professor Kukui's assistant. During your adventure through the Alola region, you first encounter Lillie and her partner Cosmog (nicknamed Nebby) as they're being confronted by a group of wild Spearow. After you rescue Nebby from the threat, Lillie becomes an integral part of your adventure, and you begin to learn more about the character and her mysterious background.
Remember, these Lillie figures will be produced only in very limited quantities based on the number of preorders received. The last day to preorder the Nendoroid Lillie is July 26, and the final day to snag a Kotobukiya figure is August 30. Head over to PokemonCenter.com and place your preorder for these collectible figures today!
