And it’s not just any Charizard rug.
Riding on the hype of many fans who grew up on Pokémon Trading Card Game, this rug might just be it for the fans.
The details on the recreated trading card rug, when compared to an actual Pokémon trading card, is spot on. The character’s evolution stage, information, power, hit points, moves, rarity are found on the rug. Also, small details such as the “first edition” notation, the colour and the attempt in recreating the holographic nature of the main image makes a whole lot of difference to the whole product making it very appealing to the fans.
Additionally, looking closely at the bottom of the rug “Kanto Starter 2021” can be seen on the product. Measuring at approximately 5’2×3’6 ft (160×110 cm), Kanto Starter has stated that only limited amount of the product would be released.
“If you don’t cop you will probably end up confused, paralyzed or asleep,” warned Kanto Starter. You can get your hands on this first edition Charizard rug on their website for €135 (approximately S$216).
However, there’s one thing to consider, this does not look like an officially licensed product from The Pokémon Company. So if you’re gonna pull the trigger on this buyer beware and it might become a limited edition item pretty soon.
