While Funko Pops may have lost some of their allure over the last 13 years, the occasional set can still recapture the magic of those original vinyl figures. One such set is the upcoming Pokémon Starter Set, featuring mini Pop figures of Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle—all in an amazing recreation of Professor Oak’s Lab! It’s like reliving those childhood memories of Pokémon Red and Blue… just with weird, giant, dead black eyes.

A first look at the set was posted by the Twitter account DisTrackers, which closely monitors the release schedule of new Funko figures. While there is currently no known release date, the distributor BoxLunch has factory-sealed boxes of the trio, indicating that an official announcement should be imminent. Fortunately, this set is not exclusive to a particular retailer, so you won’t need to shop at BoxLunch’s site if you don’t want to.

Even more Pokémon Funko Pop! have appeared!

If that’s not enough Poké-Pop news for you in one day, make sure to check out three all new figures that were just announced. Wooloo, Grookey, and Luxray are all available to pre-order right now at Amazon for $12.99.
