Some Pokémon will become Mega Bloks toys

Posted on February 17, 2017 by in General Nintendo, News

The Pokémon Company seems to be constantly looking for new opportunities to increase their brand appreciation, and the latest news show that some Pokémon will be transformed into Mega Bloks.

Or at least the re-branded line Mega Construx, as Mattel has acquired the license and will start selling Pokémon Mega Construx this summer in North America. The new line of toys will feature Charizard, Pikachu and some other creatures from the first games.

According to The Pokémon Company’s VP of marketing, Colin Palmer:

“Mega Construx brings the engaging world of Pokémon to life in one of the most popular play expressions for kids today. We bring only the highest quality Pokémon experiences to our fans around the world and Mega Brands’ attention to detail and thoughtful creativity with Mega Construx is sure to delight kids as well as the most passionate Pokémon trainers.”

Kotaku encourages us to keep checking their site because the Pokémon Mega Construx will be at Toy Fair 2017 in New York this weekend and they will probably share more images.

    THAT IS REALLY COOL OMG BUT WHY AM I EXCITED FOR TOYS FOR 10-YEAR OLDS?!?!?!

    Ahem! I am stable, yes. Mega Bloks Pokemon? No biggie. I’m calm. But I hadn’t realized Mega was owned by Mattel now. Shame. Back in 2005-2006 they had the greatest toys on the market. Cheap prices, great quality, great fun. And now overpriced Legos are dominating the market because of the Star Wars license.

      Legos are more expensive because the quality is just that much higher. Their team of designers is leagues above Mega Bloks’ and their pieces are more useful and actually stay together.

    Horrendous. Truly hideous and incompetent designs.

    Bit slow on the draw huh, Lego?

    Lego must be pitching terrible deals for TPCi to keep going elsewhere.
    I don’t blame them, though, Lego’s becoming a bad monopoly.

  • If they were Lego I would be interested, but the trademark Mega Blox design philosophy is on full display here.

    Pass

  • I could prefer Lego…..

    Oh my gosh that model is horrible lol.

    Just stick to amiibo or other actual toys.
