February 27 is Pokémon Day, commemorating the 1996 release date of the first two Pokémon games in Japan. The Pokémon Company is marking the occasion with the release of the first four entries in its premium Gallery Figures line, showing off fan-favorite pocket monsters performing their signature moves.

Obviously crafted for collectors, the Gallery Figures come in lovely window boxes, perfect for people who would prefer to let their toys slowly suffocate to death than ever feel the warmth of human contact. And while they look great in their boxes, they look even better in the open.

And I am not sure Pikachu has ever looked quite so badass in toy form.

While Tomy handles a lot of Pokémon toys in North America, the Gallery Figure line is The Pokemon Company’s baby. Pikachu, Eevee, Mew and Magikarp will be available exclusively through The Pokémon Center on February 27 for $16.99 apiece.
