|A while back, I did a number of Pokemon mini playset designs for Jakks Pacific. These mini sets were manufactured and on the shelves in toy stores. Although you'll only find them online now.|
Here is the concept art I created for the Pokemon Battle Arena.
In total, I did four sets. Since time was tight, a friend of mine named Mike Kelleher helped me with the color.
As with most mini playsets, the features have to be simple & non-electronic. To save on costs I also designed a common exterior housing that would be painted differently for each set (Pokeball, Heal Ball, Ultra Ball etc.) The hardest part of this project for me was the fact that I was not too familiar with Pokemon (sorry ). I had never watched the show and did not know much about it. Fortunately, some time on YouTube and discussions with my nephews got me up to speed
Please check out the other sets in my gallery.
Thanks for looking.
