--> Anonymous -- With regards to the recent report on the Hasbro Blastoise beanie:
"According to our records the item was never made. However, it is possible it was released in a test market only, therefore it was not accessible to everyone and since it was never widely released, we do not have any information available. We appreciate your interest."
I would like to try and settle this long running debate...
The Blastoise beanie was first seen at a Hasbro promotional stand early last year, alongside a number of other un-released beanies. While these other beanies (Staryu, Togepi, Onix etc.) were released, Blastoise caused a commotion when it was retired during the year before any country seeing it on release. Since then, Hasbro was flooded with e-mails requesting news of this missing beanie to no satisfactory result. But over the last few months, Blastoise has been appearing internationally after first being sighted here in the UK (I was one of the first people to see and buy one). If it was released to a test market, this was a VERY large test market (i.e. The World) and now seems to be available freely in Hasbro BeanBag stockists, but mostly on many eBay auctions. Hope this FINALLY clears up any confusions.
PS - Does anyone know of a good online supplier of the newer beanies in the UK?
--> Mark -- Is there a Pokemon Teddiursa figurine available? If so, where would I find one?
AbraKris -- Hasbro has yet to release the Teddiursa figurine onto the english market. Though, if you do want him badly, eBay is your best bet.
--> Anonymous -- I was wondering if you had any idea as to when the new wave of Hasbro
beanies featuring Chikorita #152, Bayleef #153, Quilava #156, Typhlosion #157, Croconaw #159, Feraligatr #160, Cleffa #173, Sunflora #192, Blissy #142 will be released.
AbraKris -- Sorry mate. I wish I knew. When they do though, you will find out here first.
