Welcome back to the Weekly Wave! Let’s see what news, updates, and announcements have risen to the surface this week!
New Ashoka Star Wars Lego set is coming soon!
As long-time Lego fans and builders, we had to add this bit of news to our wave, especially with the Ashoka series premiering this week. As we begin another epic Star Wars series with Ashoka Tano at the helm, fans are excited to see where the adventure takes us, and what kind of cool merch will be coming out as well.
Lego recently announced that their new Ahsoka Tano T-6 Jedi Shuttle set will be released on September 1st. The set features the same craft and characters from the series, including Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, Professor Huyang, and Marrok. The shuttle itself also has some sweet features that will look even more awesome once it's put together.
This Ashoka Lego set will be a great addition for collectors of all ages. One thing we’ve learned over the years is that Star Wars merch is fun to play with and/or collect…and they always appreciate it. Whether it's a gift for yourself or perhaps a youngling who is just beginning to learn the ways of the force, this is one set that looks like a blast to build…together. Check out Lego’s official site for more details!
May the force be with you!
A Pokémon treasure is on the auction block!
An auction has sprung up on the digital stage, starring none other than an illustrious 1998 Pokémon Japanese Promo Silver 2nd-2nd Tournament #2 Trophy Pikachu. Hold on to your Pokédex, because this Pikachu is no ordinary pocket monster. What makes this particular Pokémon card so valuable is its rarity, condition, and history.
This Pikachu is just 1 of 14 in existence and was originally used as the second-place sparkle in the Japanese Lizardon Mega Battle Pokémon tournament way back in 98’. This card also has been given a GEM MT 10 PSA grade, which is also extremely rare for a card like this. In fact, out of all the cards that have passed through the halls of PSA, only four have received a GEM MT 10 grade, making it pretty much perfect.
This Tournament #2 Trophy Pikachu is up for auction on Goldin’s site, and has reached a current bid of $75,000 after just 6 bids. So, if you want a chance to own this piece of rare Pokémon perfection, and history, you’ll have to put in a bid north of $75k and keep an eye on the other bids that can come through between now and September 9th.
