Action Figure Review: Bounsweet vs Pikachu from Pokemon by Tomy
Height: 1 inch
Height: 1 1/2 inches (to the top of the frond)
Non-Scalper Price: $6-$7 dollars
* I love the cute, harmless look of Bounsweet. Supposedly Bounsweet smells incredible and people use them as air fresheners. Tomy does a really nice job with the sculpting on these and they're bright, colorful, and just really reflective of the Pokemon art style. I love the cute little eyes on Bounsweet, too!
* Since Bounsweet has teeny, tiny little feet Tomy included a small plastic stand. It's just a translucent clear disc with a peg but it works really well for keeping Bounsweet upright on display.
* The second figure in the set is a sleeping Pikachu. How cute, right? There have been so many different Pikachu figures over the years and giving us a sleeping sculpt is pretty fun and unique. He's totally snoozing large!
* The face is really cute, too. Look ho happy this Pikachu is? I love the paintwork here and the way Pikachu is wearing a Pokemon trainer's hat, too.
This is a pretty cool set. Granted, I paid a little less than $2 dollars for it but even at the normal price it's still a nice pack of two fully painted, high quality minifigures. It's a Great little set and makes a nice addition to any Pokemon collection or a fun way to add a few more characters to the World of Nintendo line. Bounsweet and Pikachu are two fun minifigures and definitely stand out in the rather nice Tomy Pokemon line that just keeps growing and growing.
If you like Pikachu, you can also check out my review of Pikachu from the Ash + Pikachu two-pack.
This is the first figure of Bounsweet I've reviewed.
