Posting this here, 'cause apparently nobody gives a rat's bottom over at reddit to even talk. <_<;

At the recent New York Toy Fair it was mentioned that a few more upcoming products would soon be available at TRU, Targets and Walmart presumably starting around March/April. Those who frequent Target/TRU have probably already seen the Red and Yellow Pikmin plush in the last months, with poor Red always being the neglected one '^') out of the set. Blue is supposedly coming up next, though to be honest, I found him at Target at the end of last year. It seems to me some of Jakks Nintendo products NEVER end up making it into the store. Mario and especially Yoshi are always present. Wario I've seen every now and then, but Link I've NEVER SEEN. I've only seen the Blue Pikmin plush twice as well. The articulate Toon Link, Toon Gandondorf and Samus have apparently been spotted, yet I've never seen them myself. This leads me to ask about scarcity ratio, and the worry of missing out figures....of course, these aren't NEAR as pretty as amiibo. They are budget colletibles, but what makes them neat is Jakks' selection of characters that haven't had a nice sizable figure before, including Tetra, Metroid, and their upcoming Falcon and Fox for example! :D

TL;DR: Local brick & mortar stores never seem to have all types/variants of certain product line in stock. Does anybody know where else these upcoming World of Nintendo collectible products might be available?

FYI for anyone interested in snagging some if local stores don't end up stocking them:
:bulletred: Olimar: BBTS ToyWiz,
:bulletred: Red Pikmin: BBTS ToyWiz
^-- These were Reddit specific, but you can find a few others too there.


EDIT: Anyone who feels pro-active in suggesting other Nintendo characters in general you can reach out to Jakks Pacific at consumers@jakks.com
I did a while back, and look, Blue Pikmin came out! Now we have a mini figure of Olimar on the way too and so forth! >u< 
(My e-mail may not have done didly squat for this happen, but it's happening and that's all I care about!)

You still racked up damage on me from 0% to 60+% before I even touched you though. XD;;


Don't know if you've heard this but, I see you as the female equivalent to Y-Man in terms of gaming skills. You both REKT in MK8 and SSB4! O.o;
