One of the most popular characters from Pokémon Sword and Shield is without a doubt Marnie, the cool rival with almost as many fans in-game as she’s soon amassed in the real world in the year since the game’s release on Nintendo Switch. Thanks to her striking design and personality, many have been drawn to the character that it’s no surprise merchandise for them has swiftly followed. A scale figure from Good Smile Company for Marnie and her partner Pokémon Morpeko has been announced and is now available for pre-order for a limited time.

The composed demeanor of Marnie has been captured with this figure as she stands looking over her shoulder with her back turned. Her outfit matches that seen in the game itself, from the spiked heel boots to the pink DXRacer, leather jacked and red backpack, from which Morpeko can be seen clutching the strap and waving in a rather adorable pose. The figure is stood on a base designed to match the logo of Spikemuth Gym in Pokémon Sword and Shield as well. The figure, when stood on the included stand, is just shy of 21cm tall, making it a decently-sized and highly detailed scale figure for any Pokémon fan’s collection.
It should be well-detailed considering the price, since those who wish to procure the figure for themselves will find they need to shell out in order to pick it up. Pre-orders for the Marnie figure based on her design in Pokémon Sword and Shield are now open until November 30th for 14300yen. To help soften that blow, all pre-orders will come included with a special clear file featuring a character illustration from Saito Naoki. Pre-orders are now open from the Japanese Pokémon Center online store, with delivery of the figure expected in June 2021 after the pre-order period has expired.
