April 11, 2015 - The Mega Latias and Latios plush have been released at the Pokemon Center but there was no news about it on the official Pokemon Center news page until today. If I understand correctly, those who subscribed to the mailing list received a sneak peek of the items available this month (possibly because they knew how popular they would be). That didn't stop people from sharing the news via social media sites!
Mega Latias - 1800 yen
Mega Latios - 2000 yen
They are unfortunately not poseable, but they are soft and cuddly. The wings are very delicate though so be sure to store them in a safe place and ask the seller or pick-up person to protect the wings with cardboard so they don't bend.
It's that time again when new products from the Banpresto I <3 Eevee line are released! This time we get a hanging version of all these Eeveelution cuties. The first set are released in April with Eevee, Lefeon, and Glaceon starting out the lineup. Then they will follow with some old school evolutions including Flareon, Vaporeon, and Jolteon. Then after the long wait, we'll finally have a couple of the best Eeveelutions in June: Espeon, Umbreon, and Sylveon. These plush measure to about 10 cm.
It's the moment everyone is waiting for! The Mega Pikazards are finally returning to the Mega Tokyo stores with a special twist! A Mega Size special version of Mega Pikazard will be released alongside them! The Mega Size version is 55cm tall and will be priced at 7,800 yen. The normal sized plush will be priced at 2,000 yen. Get yours while you can! The first set last year were sold out on the first day!
Later this month (April 2015), the Pokemon Center will be releasing three types of Ghost Pokemon cotton bags (plus Pikachu). Details are still upcoming, but it looks like they will be sold for 600 yen each.
March 21, 2015 - The Pokemon Center brings a couple new lines of Pokemon for their Pokemon Petit Series Promotion. This time their series features the Kanto and Johto starters! It looks like they are offering the same merch as they did in the past for the other Pokemon Petit promotions (such as Latias & Latios) with an addition of a Conbi Set that features the RG starters only (which is unfortunate because I would jump all over it if they also had one featuring the Johto starters).
Multi-Pouch [RG/GS] - 1188 yen
Bus Case [RG/GS] - 1004 yen
Clearfile Set [RG/GS] - 360 yen
Stickers [RG/GS] - 288 yen
Lunch Box [RG only] - 1728 yen
Conbi Set [RG only] - 918 yen
Lunch Cloth [RG only] - 702 yen
Pull Pen - [RG/GS] 617 yen

March 21, 2015 - Pokemon Center in Japan released some very cool "Transformer-like" merch in the form of Mega Charizard X & Y trucks. Now, I played with Tonka trucks as a kid (and we didn't have the plastic ones, we had the very violent metal kind - what were they thinking?) but I never had any as cool as these. If I was a hardcore Charizard collector, I would definitely want these in my collection. They go for 800 yen each which I think is pretty reasonable.
