Pokemon: Die-Cast Poke Ball Replica Series Announced

Posted by: Nick on November 30, 2020 at 06:57 PM CST


Equipped with proximity-sensing technology, the Die-Cast Replica’s button glows when it senses motion; pressing the button changes the light color or starts a Pokémon-catching illumination sequence. Ideal for collectors, each replica comes with a presentation case—authenticated by a uniquely-numbered hologram—and a polished stainless steel ring that provide multiple ways to properly protect and display the product. Fans will also enjoy multi-colored lights when opening the lid of the case, which can be controlled through a touch-sensitive metal plaque on the front of the case.

“The Poké Ball is an iconic part of the Pokémon franchise, and we are thrilled to work with The Wand Company to re-create the Poké Ball as a high-quality collectible for our fans,” said Amy Sachtleben, director of licensing at The Pokémon Company International. “The Wand Company is known for their innovative designs and world-class manufacturing, making them the perfect partner to bring this vision to life.”

“Working on such an iconic property as Pokémon is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for The Wand Company team,” said Chris Barnardo, CEO of The Wand Company. “It’s been such an exciting development and we look forward to sharing our gorgeous Poké Ball series with fans everywhere.”

To highlight this launch, the classic Poké Ball version was prominently featured in Pokémon’s appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Flanked by a troupe of dancing Pikachu, a Pokémon Trainer triumphantly held up the Poké Ball for millions of fans around the world to see. As of today, fans can preorder one of their very own.

As the first to launch in the series, the Poké Ball replica is available for preorder starting today via Amazon and other participating retailers around the world, and products will ship to preorder customers to arrive on Pokémon Day, Feb. 27, 2021. Products will be available at Sideshow.com, Zavvi, Forbidden Planet, and Yellow Octopus, among other retailers.
