Action figure was first introduced in 1964 by the Hasbro Company to describe their newest brand GI Joe. The company preferred calling it action figure instead of doll in order to replace the girly doll term that was more inviting to younger boys.
When the first Pokemon Action Figures first arrived in America market in the mid 1990’s, the popular TV series quickly became a hit. Younger kids in particular became entranced by the TV show’s storyline, its loveable characters, and the famous catch phrase catch ‘em all. In a decade and a half the initial Poke-hysteria, the super hit Pokemon have not decreased in its popularity and, like GI Joe and Star Wars, it too became an icon of the generation.
The history of Pokemon media as franchise spans over a decade from the day its work became official, down to its first gaming console. The postulate of the Pokemon Action Figures roots from the hobby of collecting insects, a popular pastime which the Pokemon’s executive director surprisingly admitted during its press conference. The players of the game were designated as Pokemon Trainers and have two final goals to complete: completing the pokedex by finding as many pokemons as they can, and to train a team of powerful pokemon species found in the fictional area where the game is located.
The term Pokemon originated from the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters. In addition, Pokemon is also collectively appertaining to the 493 fictional species that have made different appearances in Pokemon media. Pokemon properties have since been focused into trading cards, anime, toys, books and other different media. Recently, the franchise celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2006.
Endless varieties of the games, action figures, card sets and television shows have been sold successfully into its first decade. Its original booster card sets and collectible action figures continue to sell for hundreds of dollars on eBay and in many toy retailing shops. One of its most enduring artifacts called the Pokemon mythos is a well sculpted figurine or action figure that is well defined and vividly depicted. These action figures, depicting some of the children’s favorite villains, trainers, and cuddly pokemon themselves, still continue to sell in high volumes today.
Pokemon Action Figures are extension of the popular Pokemon franchise. Pokemon, created by Nintendo, was originally intended as a video game but has since expanded into several lucrative variations such as figurines, cards, books, a popular animated TV series, and movie franchise. There a wide selection of action figures that represents the many characters of Pokemon universe.
