20th Anniversary Edition

Nanoblock Mew

To commemorate 20 years of Pokémon, a special gray monochrome edition of the first series of Nanoblocks were released on March 4, 2016. The gray color is reminiscent of the original games, and the models come in a box with the original game art box art at the front. Each model comes with spare pieces which can be collected together and used to make a monotone model of Mew. The instructions for Mew can be downloaded on-line by inputting four passcodes obtained from each of the four models. The Mew model requires 88 pieces and has a difficulty of 2/5.
