This time last year, we got the announcement of a nendoroid and figure for popular Pokémon Sun & Moon character Lillie. At Wonder Festival this year, we’ve gotten more new Pokémon figures, or rather, more Lillie figures. Look, maybe I should be complaining about a lack of service for other characters… but Lillie’s awesome, so I’ll settle for happiness instead.
To start with, here’s the new nendoroid; whilst the figure last year had Lillie in her starting attire, this time she has her late-game look where she chooses to be more confident and tackle the world head-on:
Next, we have a bespoke figure of her with her late-game style, but more accurate to her in-game look:
Oh, and there’s one more Lillie figure. This one is a Pokémon Center original, and includes Clefairy as well:
Hold on one second – a different character slipped through the cracks! Your rival from Pokémon Red/Blue/Green/Yellow, named Blue, is getting a nendoroid as well! I guess they can’t all be Lillie.
To be serious, it is interesting they keep coming back to Lillie. Pokémon is full of likeable and interesting characters, and figures of Gym Leaders, for example, would be great to see. Ah well – until that happens, we can have 20 Lillie figures on our shelves.
