Monster Collection (Japanese: モンスターコレクション Monster Collection) is a line of collectible Pokémon figures produced by Takara Tomy in Japan. Also known as simply 'Tomy Figures', they are standard PVC models of each Pokémon. There is at least one of every Pokémon, except while the newest line is still in production.

In Japan, Monster Collection figures can be purchased at many stores, including Pokémon Centers where all of the current figures are sold for ¥294 each. The USA Pokémon Center may also sell a selection of Monster Collection figures. They also offer special 'Bundles' of them as well.

The Hasbro equivalents that were sold worldwide were known as Battle Figures.

Main sets

Each new Monster Collection set coincides with a new generation of Pokémon, and so is named accordingly here.

First Generation - released 1998

The third generation packaging is the only series thus far to be packaged in a box rather than just a blister pack. It contains information on the Pokémon at the side of the box, with the same picture on the other side as well. The number is on the bottom right of the package.

Fourth Generation

The fourth generation packaging reverts to the previous generation packaging. The top of the packaging is red, with a Poké Ball on the top left. Behind the Pokémon is a white background with a faint background effect. On the left side is a black column with the text 'Pocket Monsters' on it using the background coloring. The number is on a black and white sticker on the front of the box.
