As announced previously, Pokemon fans will be able to build Pikachu at Build-a-Bear Workshops starting early next year. We now have an image of the Pikachu plush that will be available, as you can see above. It “bears” the Build-a-Bear Workshop stamp on its right hand.
Fans will be able to customize Pikachu with a Poke Ball hoodie and an electronic sound chip that provides Pikachu’s “Pika Pika” sounds. If you order the plush through Build-a-Bear’s website, you’ll also be able to get Pikachu with an exclusive Charizard costume.
Everyone who buys Pikachu will also receive a “unique Build-A-Bear Workshop-branded Pokemon TCG card,” which will likely be a reprint.
