■ Product Features
April 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon anime series, and what better way to celebrate than with poseable figures of these beloved characters?! The Ash figure is wearing the outfit he wore while traveling around the Johto region after leaving his native Kanto. Naturally, he comes with his partner, Pikachu, who can be placed on his shoulder just like in the series. This figure can be displayed in a variety of classic Ash Ketchum poses, and you can almost hear him declaring "Gotta catch 'em all!"
Prepare for trouble, and make it double - these stunning figures show Team Rocket's Jessie and James looking ready to extend their reach to the stars above! They also come with display bases emblazoned with the iconic Team Rocket "R," so you can show them off in all their Team Rocket glory. These two figures are joined by their Pokémon pal Meowth, plus interchangeable parts so you can send this troublesome trio blasting off again!
