How to Get a Full Set
Like most of Re-Ment’s collectible toys, the Pokemon Terrariums are sold in blind boxes, leaving which particular Pokemon you get to chance. BUT —
At HobbyLink Japan, we sell boxes of complete sets, so there is no risk of missing out. Out in the wild here in Japan, you will see these boxes open and on the shelves in supermarkets. It’s a thrill to pull at random, but also can be frustrating if you keep getting the same one.
I often buy these myself, but never more than 2 at a time. Here’s one I picked up over the weekend:
Protips for Display
You can collect the whole set and put them on your desk or shelf, or just get the odd one to decorate your room. I display mine on the stands of my figures to save space.
Here’s a tip for these terrariums: out of box, you get the little figures and the soil or water base that you place the Pokemon as you can see below:
Personally, I have quite a number of small figures. Of course, here in Japan we also have the occasional earthquake, so in my home having one of these fall to the floor is a real possibility. I recommend gluing down the parts and even the base to the clear Pokeball, to prevent accidents caused by earthquakes, clumsiness, or pets!
