I want 20. Of each.

I'd imagine this would be great for cosplayers.

Getting closer. Still have to make them collapsible somehow.

Also they should make it so if you buy a set of 10 you get a free premier ball.

A bit unfortunate that the Dream Ball and Cherish Ball aren't included in even the second set...probably for the reason that they're event-exclusive.

I can honestly say that the mints, are kinda gross, nice to see that I'm not the only one who thought of these for cosplay

I've always dreamed of owning my very own Monster Balls. I'd like that Super and Hyper Ball. Of course, the original Monster Ball as well.

For those who don't know, the 4 basic balls have already seen a general release. This article and many others seem to make this out to be a 100% P-Bandai exclusive. I purchased a set myself and while they're good, they're far from perfect. For one, they are far too small and don't have spring opening catches. Not bad for display, but not something I'd call a quality prop.

What's the red one with the lightning bolt? I don't remember that being in any of the games, and if it's in the anime, I must have forgotten about it. Kind of makes me think of Shazam (the DC hero).

Well, they're already included in both sets, and excluding the Premier Ball, both are less than 10 balls, unfortunately.

If these mints are like the stuff that other merchanidse randomly have packed with them, they ARE awful. I'm sure there must be some manufacturer of really cheap mints and Ramune-flavored chewable tablets that all these companies have huge quantities of.

It's the Poké Ball that was made for Ash's Pikachu.

Ah, the one that Pikachu steadfastly refused? Thanks. It's been so long, I've pretty much forgotten it.

Yes. I believe it was only shown in the first episode of the anime.
