I mean fans of The Office pops are getting a gold mine of releases in such a short time and anticipation is still high.

Or is it a licensing issue I wonder. :-k


Licensing probably makes the most logical sense.
For me, the slow release has made me eager and willing to collect Pokemon. I love The Office but with my limited space and resources, the line got too big too quickly and I bowed out. I have four of the commons at my desk but that's all I'm going to collect. If they had released 20+ Pokemon off the bat I would have been less likely to jump in.
That's just me and my completest brain talking though.

That makes sense from a collecting standpoint...plus just knowing that there can be over 1,000 pokemon pop (if you included shiny versions) then it can be pretty damn daunting.

I mean a perfect example of over saturating a line is Fortnite, I think the Pokemon pacing is just perfect

I'm sure it's something to do with licensing, because it's a strange strategy for a popular and a line with huge number of potential additions.

Just saw the 10" Squirtle - too cool! I can't wait to see their evolution but this license moves at a very slow pace (which isn't necessarily a bad thing with how many Pokemon there are).

I'm not surprised they're doing another Pikachu since the first was a Target exclusive and making a common one makes it more accessible to everyone else who couldn't get on. This one's pose is super cute!

I like this Pikachu a lot more than the original. I'm not going to get every single variant when they inevitably expand the line and would prefer not to have doubles but this one is just too cute.

The new pika is definitely a better pose, however, I still can't hold back my disapointment it's another pika...if they they didn't come out one every 4 months, I'd be thrilled about this...but it's not worth a 4 month wait to see this.

Yes but think of all the people who weren't able to catch the original in the wild, and all the flippers who are now going to be out of pocket as no one will be spending stupid money when they can get the new one cheap. It also helps out European collectors as they aren't released over here due to licensing issues so we have to rely on importing from America. Even Popcultcha wont ship Pokemon to Europe.

I totally get that. It's nice that there is a common 4" Pikachu now. Always thought it was weird that Pika was exclusive and the rest weren't.

Understandable given the exclusivity of the original, I think people would have been less annoyed, if it was part of a full wave, hopefully they start doing waves of six next year.

Was personally hoping they would finish this year off with Eevee.
