This life-size Detective Pikachu plushie brings home everything you love about the popular Pokémon while leaving out the oft-annoying Ryan Reynolds soundtrack.
Everyone loves Pikachu, the endearingly cute creature who's pretty much everyone's fave Pokémon character. Then there's the movie “Detective Pikachu”, featuring a talking (gasp!), cap-wearing version of the mellow yellow mouse whose voice sounds alarmingly like that of Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. What to do?
Well fear not, perturbed Pikachu fans, you can now hit the snooze button on your alarm because a life-size Detective Pikachu plushie is on the way! And as far as we can tell, it doesn't talk. It does move, mind you, or at least some of its parts do: the ears, tail and arms are fully pose-able.
Released in early May of 2019, Pokémon Detective Pikachu is the first live-action Pokémon film and thus far it has garnered generally positive reviews – so much so, that a sequel is already in the works.
“In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective,” to quote the film's tag line. We'll paraphrase that to “In a world where people collect Pokémon plushies, an officially-licensed life-size Detective Pikachu seeks a place of honor on your mantel and/or in your heart.” Make it so by pre-ordering your very own life-size Detective Pikachu, priced at $245 each and scheduled for delivery by the end of 2019 – just in time for the holiday season.
