From the publisher: Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl take place in an all-new region called Sinnoh. When you set off on your travels, you'll be able to play as either a boy or girl Trainer. Pokemon fans have caught glimpses of Mime Jr., Lucario, Munchlax and Weavile in Pokemon movies, and these Pokemon will be debuting in this adventure.

Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl will challenge you to explore the Sinnoh region in an incredibly deep RPG adventure. Before your quest is complete, you'll meet over 100 new Pokemon and challenge countless Trainers along the way. Like previous core Pokemon titles, these games feature an engrossing storyline and well-balanced RPG action.

The US release versions of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl are in stock today, shipping at US$ 39.90 only.


Just like the Japanese release, the demand for Pokemon Diamond has been slighly higher compared to the Pearl edition. As we had to purchase these titles in full sets, Pokemon Diamond is expected to be on backorder for a couple of days.

Anticipated to be in stock on Monday are the Prima Games Pokemon Diamond & Pearl Official Strategy Guide and Official Nintendo Player's Guide book releases. Also make sure to check out the Nintendo DS Pokemon Diamond & Pearl Super Music Collection audio release.




From the manufacturer: Very little is understood about the demigod know as the Fierce Deity. With his history shrouded in mystery, the dark and mighty warrior was trapped into a mask, a mask which allows the wearer to inhabit the Fierce Deity's powerful body. Powerful and evil, could this mask's dark powers be as bad as Majora? When young Link dons the Fierce Deity Mask, he manages to harness its power without being corrupted and is transformed into Fierce Deity Link for ultimate showdown with Majora…

First 4 Figures is proud to present Fierce Deity Link, the first collectible statue in the First 4 Figures highly anticipated Legend of Zelda collectible statue series. With inspiration taken from the official Majora’s Mask Fierce Deity Link artwork, the statue has faithfully recreated Fierce Deity’s powerful and mysterious character and pose. Raising his double helix sword high above his head, he is ready to take on any his enemies. Towering at over 14.5 inches to the tip of his sword hilt, Fierce Deity Link will be in scale with the others in the series.

Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted. Comes packed in a foam interior full colored box with a card of authenticity. Highly limited at only 2,500 pieces available worldwide.

We originally expected this item to be released someone during Q4/2006, but due to different issues, the release has been pushed back numerous times. Finally in stock today is First4Figures' The Legend of Zelda - Fierce Deity Link Statue, available in limited quantities at a price of US$ 99.90 only.

  • Edition size: 2,500 worldwide
  • Artist: Ryan Lim
  • Base Concept Artist: James West
  • Height: 14.5 inches
  • Hand cast and hand painted
  • Individually numbered and comes with an Authenticity Card
