Pokemon Centre Lifesize Detective Pikachu Plush

I cannot tell you how excited I have been for this plush to arrive from Japan and YY Kawaii this month. To make matters worse I had to wait almost a week to get this from the Post Office as I missed delivery and was only able to pick it up from the collection office this morning.

Since I got this cutie home I have been in love and so has Dane in all fairness. I just knew I had to share this plush with you all today, especially with how excited I was for Detective Pikachu hitting cinemas a couple of weeks ago. I even wrote a wish list Wednesday post about it just a few days before the release date and this plush was featured on it.

I knew I wanted to pick something up from whatever the Pokemon Centre decided to bring out for Detective Pikachu but I was surprised at the announcement of a lifesize Detective Pikachu, but knew I had to have it.

Just to announce this now, this lifesize plush is now sold out and isn’t easy to pick up now and if it is it’s not cheap! I’ve found it online for over £100 already and it’s crazy! I paid £60 for mine (not inc postage on that price) and whilst I know a lot of people will comment how this is a waste of money, or far too much, it is so worth the price to me.

This really is lifesize with a height of 50cm from the tips of the ears, down to the toes. It’s so squishy too, which makes it perfect for cuddling. It’s also really soft to the touch, which makes cuddling it even better in all honesty. Everything about this plush is cuddly, even in the arms, ears and tail. I don’t know if you can tell from the above image but this plush is so soft to the touch. It’s definitely comforting whilst cuddling it due to this. It’s just so incredibly soft and I’m a massive sucker for anything like that as I find it can help my anxiety if it’s ever really bad.

Just all the little details of this plush are gorgeous, the main one I notice being the the cheeks where Pikachu’s red patches are. These aren’t a piece of material stuck on, but instead the colour has been added on with paint, dye, etc. Overall the fact is so sweet and the eyes are huge, which is good considering the size of the plush! I think the only issue I have (when looking close up) is the mouth is wonky… But this isn’t anyone’s fault really.

One thing I really love about this plush is the cute little feet! These are so small they aren’t fully noticeable at first, but when looking closer at the plush, they are adorable. I just had to show them on the post.

Of course it wouldn’t be Detective Pikachu without his deerstalker hat! I didn’t think this would be a plush in itself, but it is which is pretty good. I honestly thought it was going to be hollow, but alas it isn’t. It’s attached to the Pikachu plush so you won’t have to worry about it falling off or anything like that too.

Ooo that Pikachu booty! I thought I would show the back of this plush, as it’s equally as good as the front! The Pikachu tail is surprisingly squishy and stays in place really nicely. I was definitely surprised by the tail when I opened the packaging it arrived it and gave it a squish.

The brown sections on Pikachu’s back are separate pieces of material that have been sewn into the plush so not dyed on like the red cheeks.

Of course I had to include some photos of me with my gorgeous new plush! I’m pretty sure you can tell from the photos just how big this plush is compared to myself. It’s bloody big as you can see, but it’s equally amazing.

I’m so in love with my new plush and to be honest with you, for the price I am so glad I bought it! I don’t quite know where it’s going to live in my house yet. It seems to have settled itself on the back of my sofa for now… But I’m sure this isn’t where it will stay.

Have you guys been to see Detective Pikachu yet? If so, what did you think of it?

Have you purchased from YY Kawaii before? I mentioned recently how I have become a brand affiliate for them, which you can read about here. This officially starts on the 1st June, so keep eyes peeled for some exciting posts with them on my blog.

I do apologise for how quiet I’ve been on my blog and social media the past week – I’ve actually been really poorly as well as busy and rest and having social time has been what I’ve wanted.

I’ll try and make sure to keep up with both my blog and social media after the bank holiday! 🙂

Anyhoo, I hope all of my readers are well and enjoyed this evenings post!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely bank holiday weekend so far!

YY Kawaii – I’m A Brand Affiliate

Good evening my gorgeous readers, I hope you’re all well!

I feel like I’ve started today’s post off different than how I usually do, but it doesn’t hurt to have a change every now and then, does it?

As you may have already guessed from the title, I have some VERY exciting news to share and I honestly cannot wait to talk about it.

YY Kawaii is one of my favourite stores, purely because they sell loads of amazing Japanese anime (and gaming) merchandise goodies that I always flock to them for. They have some of the best prices around for the UK and are really friendly. If you don’t see something they sell, you can always ask them and you’ll get a straight forward answer. They’re always honest about pricing upfront and will let you know if an item is going to be really expensive before you commit to anything.

YY Kawaii is somewhere I go to for mainly Nendoroid figures and Persona 5 and Pokemon related merchandise BUT they sell so much more than just these. Off the top of my head they sell a lot of Sanrio, Love Live, My Hero Acadamia, Hatsune Miku, Sailor Moon and more. Those are just to name a few.

I’ve mentioned YY Kawaii on my blog so many times, through blog posts dedicated to them as well as through mentions on wish list posts. If you fancy checking out some of the posts I’ve written about them on my blog, then check out the link below:

A Mini YY Kawaii Haul

YY Kawaii Collective Haul

Not only do YY Kawaii have their website but they have their Instagram pages YY Kawaii and  YY Kawaii Merch, which is where they sell from too. I buy from both, but more often than not I do but through their YY Kawaii Merch page.

So what does it mean to be a brand affiliate? Well basically I get to do the same stuff I do anyway! Talk about this brand I love, but a little bit more than before. I’ll be trying to write more blog posts about YY Kawaii and what new stock they have out to pre-order, an example being Nendoroid’s and Pokemon and Persona 5 merchandise that month that I’ll recommend to my readers to go and check out. If there is any merchandise in particular from Japan that you would like to see on my blog then let me know and I can try and talk about that stuff more too. A big example of this could be Sailor Moon and Sanrio as I know so many people who love both of these.

As well as that I’ll be doing some more promotion on my blog Instagram page too (@theremightbecoffeeblog) as well as through Facebook groups.

At the time of this post I don’t have a discount code that I can share with my lovely readers, but in the future this is a possibility! As and when this happens I’ll be sharing it on both my Instagram and Facebook pages – as well as sticking said discount code on my blog too, so keep eyes peeled for that!

So when does my brand affiliation start? 1st June, so just over 2 weeks time! I am somewhat nervous because I want to do the brand justice. I feel like I have a big pair of boots to fill, especially as I’ll be on a trial session for a couple of months so I just want to make sure I do the best I can! 😀

The only thing I ask from my readers is support… In the sense of if there is something you would like me to talk about to do with YY Kawaii, please tell me! I will be more than happy to share Nendoroid’s they stock if you have any in mind. Maybe you’re interested in having a go at Japanese Ichiban Kuji but can’t travel to Japan to give one a go? That’s okay because YY Kawaii do them sometimes! They have some coming up soon, so I would be more than happy to talk about these for example.

Although I have linked back to both YY Kawaii’s website and Instagram pages, I’ll link everything down below too, including social media pages:

Website

Instagram – @yykawaii and @yykawaiimerch

So my main question to you guys have you shopped with YY Kawaii before? If so please let me know what you bought! If you’ve never shopped with them before, do you think you will? If so what would you pick up? Make sure to let me know in the comments!

I know this is a short post today, but after I found out this lovely bit of news late last week, I just couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! I for one am so excited to be a brand affiliate for a brand I love to bits… Even if it is only for a couple of months. 🙂

Until next time, I hope everyone had a great weekend and that you’re all enjoying the gorgeous weather at the moment. It’s glorious and well deserved for us lot in the UK 😛

Wish List Wednesday – Deadpool 2

This is a post I never thought I would make and HOLY SHIT am I excited for Deadpool 2! I loved when it came out and I still do love that film. Me and Dane discussed for ages if Ryan Reynolds would return to do another film and we weren’t shocked when it was announced. We booked to go and see it at the end of April and I cannot wait to go and see it next week with Dane. We’re going to make an evening of it, go watch the film and have a meal. I’m so excited!

If you’re an old reader of my blog you’ll know that my boyfriend Dane did a wish list Wednesday post for me 2 years ago when the first Deadpool came out. If you’d like to read that post, you can find it here.

Now we have another film out, I thought it would be fun to do a wish list post myself this time! I’ve wanted to do this since we finally booked the tickets to go and watch the film. I cannot explain how excited I am for it. ARGH!!!

Anyway, enough! On with the wish list!

  • Deadpool 5-Pack Ladies Socks – (link)

First of all for an officially licensed product, 5 pairs of socks for £6.99 to me is such a bargain! I’d love to get these as I’d wear them with my Vans at work for whenever I wear my short trousers (I don’t have a clue what they’re called!) at work. I recently started to wear my Eeveelutions socks like this for work and it’s cool thinking that I’m bringing a bit of my geeky self to work, without being out there about it, you know? Also as well as that these would be great to wear around the house, as well as out and about.

  • Deadpool Mystery Minis – (link)

My friend Sophie brought these to my attention quite some time ago and I’ve always had them at the back of my mind, but when doing some research for this post I stumbled across them and remembered how much I did want them a few months back. I’d still love one or two of these to have on my desk at work and in my car. You can buy a whole set of them from forbiddenplanet.co.uk but I don’t need to do that. I’ll just get myself (and maybe Dane for shits and giggles!) a couple to open for a laugh.

  • Loungefly Marvel Deadpool Tattoo Flash Print Mini Faux Leather Backpack – (link)

Oh man if anyone knows me, they’ll know I love Loungefly. Even recently I bought myself a new Loungefly bag (which you can see and read about here) and I love my Pokemon Loungefly bag to bits (which you can read here)! When I discovered Geek La Chic recently through Estellosaurus I had a nose on their website and discovered that they stock Loungefly bags! I’m not going to lie, they’re bloody expensive in comparison to some websites out there (GAME and EMP come to mind right now) but man, would I LOVE a Deadpool Loungefly bag. Deadpool is my favourite Marvel character, I have to show that love through Loungefly at some point in the future.

  • Deadpool Notebook – (link)

I don’t need a new notebook… But if this was being sold for cheaps I’d want to pick it up to keep on my desk at work. My 2017 journal was Deadpool and I loved it so much! I currently have a 101 Dalmatians Cath Kidston notebook as my 2018 journal right now and sadly I don’t use it half as much as I did with my Deadpool one. I really need to tbf.

  • Deadpool Wipe Your Feet Door Mat – (link)

Me and Dane already own a Deadpool door mat, it isn’t this one BUT I think we both need this one now. We want to get a door mat for our back door and this is just the best timing ever. I’m going to pick it up at some point in the future. Why not have Deadpool for both our front and back doors, eh?

  • Deadpool Katana Umbrella – (link)

I don’t need an umbrella, but how amazing is this one? The picture above isn’t really doing this justice. When you open it you have a picture of Deadpool, of course. The main thing I love about this umbrella is that you can carry it across your body! This would be handy to have when out and about, as the one thing I really hate doing is carrying an umbrella! It’s so tedious and it can’t be just me who feels like that?! It looks like a huge umbrella too, which is even better.

  • Deadpool Geeki Tiki – (link)

This is by far my favourite item on this wish list! I mean, do I really need to say fuck all about it? Look how awesome it is!!! I’m not a massive tiki glass person but only in the sense of I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy one, BUT these are awesome. I’ve already had a nose at what others you can buy, but my favourite just has to be the Deadpool one. I especially love that it’s red, which would match with my kitchen perfectly! I wouldn’t just keep this for alcoholic drinks, I’d use it for any drink imaginable.

  • Deadpool Ladies Eyes Tee – (link)

I’m really after a new Deadpool tee lately. I recently had a look at the ones that Primark have for sale and whilst they’re pretty good for the monies, they’re nothing special. I love both the colour and style of it and it’s one of the best I’ve seen for ages. They do this for men too, as well as women.

  • Deadpool Spatula With Removable Mask – (link)

I think I’ll end up buying this because 1. It’s cheap and 2. It’s absolutely amazing! I mean look at it! I’m never going to say no to adding a Deadpool spatula into my kitchen in all honesty. I might try and pick these up soon and actually gift them to Dane for a giggle for our fifth anniversary next month, which I can’t believe that in all honesty, it’s really flown! I love that you can change Deadpool’s faces on this though, I wouldn’t know which to use really. 😛

So that’s my wish list Wednesday this time and as I’ve already said, it just HAD to be Deadpool related! I’m so stoked to go and watch it next week. It’s officially out Friday 18th but I know it’ll be around from Tuesday 16th so if you haven’t booked tickets or made plans yet, get on it! Deadpool 2 will be here before we know it.

Will you be going to watch Deadpool 2? If so let me know after you’ve seen it what you think! Is there any Deadpool merch you’ve seen lately and think I need to know about? Let me know in the comments, as always.

Anyhoo, I hope you all had an amazing bank holiday Monday, as well as an awesome weekend. Until next time, take care all and see you soon!
