Bandai is releasing a life-sized Detective Pikachu plush toy. His ears, hands and tail are all poseable. Just look at it!


The doll is priced at 21,780 yen (nearly $200) and will go on sale this December in Japan. No word on an international release.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Now THAT is worth $200.
