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 fifth generation Pokémon which are still in production.

In Japan, they can be purchased at many stores, and of course the Pokémon Center itself sells all of the current figures for 294 Yen. The USA Pokémon Center also sells them at $4.95 each, but does not stock many and mainly has the fourth generation Pokémon available rather than old generations. They also offer special 'Bundles' of them as well.

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

Sets

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

First Generation - released 1998

Second Generation - released 2004

Third Generation - released 2005

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

Main article: MC 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.

Fifth Generation

Main article: MC Fifth Generation

The fifth generation packaging is similar to last generation's packaging but yellow. The right side of the packaging is black with a Poké Ball at the side right side of the logo in the middle.

Special releases

A variety of figures have been released promotionally and thus have not been sold in stores. These are generally to promote movies or other events.
