TOY BOX UPDATES
I have spent every minute of every day I currently have not doing other activities, working on Pojo's Toy Box. Here is a summary of what I have posted.
The "Hasbro's Toy World" section of the Toy Box is almost complete. I have already posted two extensive articles there; "GS Pokémon: Series 1" which gives you a list of the first GS Pokémon to be broduced as toys, and "2" Figure Dex" which has a visual display of all 250 2" figures found in Battle Figure, Grabber Ball, Poké Ball Blaster, and Poké-Pack assortments.
Many Hasbro assortment sections are also now fully up and operational, with detail you will not find any where else, and all the pictures you could ever want. For sections on Hasbro's Bean-Filled Plush, Combat Figures, Battle Figures, Grabber Balls, Poké Ball Blasters, Poké-Packs, Think Chip Figures, Think Chip Battle Stadium, Think Chip Interactive Trainers, Think Chip Pokédex, and ALOT more sections to come, head on over to "Hasbro's Toy World" section and all the links are right there.

--> DarkArticuno -- You know those Quarter Vending Machines? Well whenever i go to my local stores (wal-mart, K-mart, etc) there are really small, plastic Pokemon Fiqures in them that have alot of japanese stamping on the back and really crappy paint jobs. I am now collecting them and wondered if you knew what these are and if they have any value? Thanks.
Personally, I do not know what you are refering to, as, well, I do not live where most of you readers do, and we do not have Wal-Marts here. So, I am leaving this question open to the readers. If you collect these figurines, or know something about them you wouldn't mind sharing, drop us a line.
--> TheCursedOne -- Will they eventually come out with all 26 of the Unowns as figurines?
At the moment, I have neither seen or heard of 26 Unown figures. I have ony see one, but they may eventually bring out more. But there is only one at the moment.
--> Mew2Mew -- Do I have news for you! Hasbro has released a new TALKING pokedex. It has info on all pokemon from Kanto to Gold And Silver. The price range goes between 19.99 to 29.99. You can get it in June 2001. Hope ya like the update...
There is nothing on eBay as of yet, but am watching it like a hawk. If you have seen this new Pokédex, again, drop us a line here at Pojo.
--> Shane Kumagai -- Dear AbraKris, I live in Canada but often go to the States where my dad works in
Columbus. at a Japanese food store I go to often to see Japanese Pokemon
toys, they have alwas had these small plush animals. Pojo is my favorite
site but I don't often buy the magazine so I don't know if anybody else
has seen these.
In the set I have seen as fallows: Togepi, Wigglytuff, Jolteon,
Vileplume, Ivysaur, Snorlax, Oddish, Pichu, Igglybuff, Cleffa, Wooper,
Hoot Hoot, Hoppip, & Bellosom. I think that is all.
The maker is BanDai and the box is covered with Japanese writing. If you
have any info or values on these guys, please to notify me at the toybox.
If it helps, I'll try to give you some box scans. Would it be possible for you to
put a small post in "Celebi's Sightings" for me asking if anybody reading
knows about these cute guys?
Thanks a lot.
--> IndigoMaster -- I have seen spinarak and heracross from the combat figures wave 3 at my local wal-mart. They also have Master and Ultra balls that spin to reveal pokemon with a point number, that you play a game with.
--> POKETNRJSH -- I have three Blastoise Bean bags. My local K-mart has a bunch. It is in Florissant, MO.
Could it be? The Hasbro Bean-Bag Plush Blastoise has started shipping to the US? Have you seen a Blastoise near you?
