The Pokémon Company International and The Wand Company to Deliver Premium Poké Ball Replica Collectible Series
The Pokémon Company International and The Wand Company announced a collaboration to release the first-ever Die-Cast Poké Ball Replica Series, offering fans the unique opportunity to collect premium replicas of the iconic Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, and Premier Ball when they launch throughout 2021.
Equipped with proximity-sensing technology, the Die-Cast Replica’s button glows when it senses motion; pressing the button changes the light color or starts a Pokémon-catching illumination sequence. Ideal for collectors, each replica comes with a presentation case—authenticated by a uniquely-numbered hologram—and a polished stainless steel ring that provide multiple ways to properly protect and display the product. Fans will also enjoy multi-coloured lights when opening the lid of the case, which can be controlled through a touch-sensitive metal plaque on the front of the case.
“The Poké Ball is an iconic part of the Pokémon franchise, and we are thrilled to work with The Wand Company to re-create the Poké Ball as a high-quality collectible for our fans,” said Amy Sachtleben, director of licensing at The Pokémon Company International. “The Wand Company is known for their innovative designs and world-class manufacturing, making them the perfect partner to bring this vision to life.”
