pikachu sleeping bag plush

Check out these super adorable Pikachu sleeping bag plushies! It’s a Pikachu plush in it’s very own Charizard, Eevee, or Ekans sleeping bag –– basically, it’s cuteness wrapped in cuteness.

The new plushies are part of a contest starting September 19 in Japan where shoppers can buy a lottery ticket for 620 yen ($5.17 USD) at participating stores for a chance to win Pokémon prizes.

The prizes include the adorable Pikachu with Sleeping Bag Plushie, bath towels, socks, palm-sized plush sets, hand towels and more. Of course, you need to be in Japan to buy the tickets to enter, so most of us will just have to look at the cute, be happy and hope that these become available to purchase one day.

The Star Wars Movie Realization figure line gets two new additions with the official unveiling of the Akazonae Royal Guard and Teppou Ashigaru Sandtrooper. Both figures have the gorgeous details that’s become synonymous with this line and both figures come with interchangeable hands and dedicated weapons sets. The sandtrooper has a gorgeous set of steampunk style blasters and the Royal Guard comes with with interchangeable chest pieces so you can display them in their robes or armor.

Posed with the previously released Vader figure, they definitely look like an intimidating group!

Last month’s “Heroes 2″ Loot Crate box was fantastic, but I think the villains gave them a run for their money.

I don’t know if Hasbro decided to release an official guide to get out ahead of the leaks, or if they wanted to make sure people knew what was coming so they’d be ready to BUY ALL THE THINGS, but they’ve given us a pretty extensive look at some of the early merchandise.

If you’re majorly against spoilers, I’d suggest you not click. However, the toys don’t seem to reveal much we don’t already know.

Check out the gallery after the break.

lola pop

I know the official rule is “don’t touch Lola”, but when it’s this version, how can you not? Funko nails it once again by making a Pop! version of Agent Coulson’s beloved red 1962 Chevrolet Corvette convertible.

You should know that, while Coulson is packaged with this mini Lola, you can actually put any of the 3 3/4-inch Pop! vinyls behind the wheel. I want to see a version with both Peggy Carter and Black Widow driving.

If you collect Living Dead Dolls, I have some great news for you. Nerd Approved has been given an exclusive reveal of the newest LDD adorbz. Entertainment Earth and Mezgo are winging you away to Oz with this Flying Monkeys of Oz 3-Pack.

These 3-inch tall terrors have their own special display box. I don’t know about you, but the Wicked Witches flying monkeys always scared the hell out of me. These Living Dead Dolls versions are a mix of creepy and cute that might help me work through my fear.

They’re estimated for arrival in January, but EE is taking pre-orders now. My guess is they’ll “fly” off shelves, so grab ’em while you can.
