Nintendo gets your Pokémon collection started with these figures of Ho-Oh and Lugia, yours when you preorder Pokémon HeartGold or SoulSilver for the Nintendo DS.
Starting February 1st, select retailers will be offering these two limited edition figures for customers who preorder these latest Pokémon remakes, with HeartGold customers scoring Ho-Oh and SoulSilver pre-purchasers walking away with Lugia. Both figures are crafted by renowned Japanese figure-making company Kaiyodo, perhaps best known for anime-woman sculptor Bome, and their ultra-articulated Revoltech line. In other words, these are some quality figures right here.
"These unique figures are our way of thanking Pokémon fans of all ages for the enthusiasm and support they have shown for the series," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions include new features and enhancements that players will instantly appreciate, and we think these terrific figures will help to get fans even more excited about what is in store for them on March 14."
And, in the spirit of catching them all, you're going to need to preorder both versions to get both figures. Remember, the Nintendo DSi makes a lovely Valentine's Day gifts, and give you an excuse to purchase two copies of Pokémon.
