Pika New Year!

What, you Funko didn’t make Eldritch abominations figures devoid of unnervingly soul-piercing onyx eyes? There’s your Scott Pilgrim figures, a Margot Tenenbaum one, and yes, an entire series dedicated to Pokémon‘s lovable Pikachu. Dubbed “A Day with Pikachu”, these diorama-esque figures lovingly capture incidental escapades spanning a year’s time, one for each month. Over the past year, they’ve been sold exclusively on the official Pokémon Center store for $14.99 each, and we’re down to two last figures — “Ringing in the Fun” to celebrate New Year’s Eve, and an unknown slated for next January. As you’re checking out the Hoothoot clock, can you also spot a certain Ultra Beast cameo?

For those interested in obtaining this adorable figure, a Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter subscription will notify its availability. While A Day With Pikachu is typically snapped up quick, our last one in A Cool New Friend remains listed for puchase, so grab it while you can! As for the rest of the series? Sadly, they’re sold out, but hey: there’s always eBay! As it turns out, they’re quite inexpensive individually.

Will you be catching yourself a Pikachu figure for the holidays? Let us know in the comments below!
