Merchandise released by Nintendo[edit]

This section is regarding Pikmin-themed merchandise released officially by Nintendo. All of this merchandise has the official Nintendo seal, and is not released by a third party.

Olimar amiibo[edit]

The Olimar amiibo is part of the sixth (seventh in Europe) wave of the Super Smash Bros. series of amiibo. In North America, it is scheduled for a September release date in North America along with Zero Suit Samus, Bowser Junior, Ganondorf, and Doctor Mario, while on Europe, it has already been released, along with Dr. Mario and Bowser Jr. So far, the Olimar amiibo is confirmed to be compatible with the following games.

Olimar-exclusive compatibility[edit]

  • In Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, the Olimar amiibo acts as a Figure Player, just as all the other Super Smash Bros. series amiibo, and will save data to the amiibo's chip.
  • In Mario Kart 8, the amiibo will unlock an Olimar-styled suit for the Mii character, with the body of the costume resembling Olimar's spacesuit, and the helmet being designed to look like a space helmet. On the back of the helmet is a Red Pikmin hanging on. Mario Kart 8 does not save data to the amiibo.
  • In Yoshi's Woolly World, the amiibo unlocks an Olimar-styled Yoshi. The Yoshi is stylized to look like Olimar, and the spikes on the back of its head have the same color as the first three Pikmin. Yoshi's Woolly World does not save data to the amiibo.
  • In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy +, it is unconfirmed what the amiibo's use will be, but Olimar is listed as compatible on Nintendo's amiibo compatibility chart. Most likely, it will act like the other amiibo, giving players a Pikmin-themed jet plane, and will not save data to the amiibo.
  • In Super Mario Maker, the amiibo will give players access to a Olimar skin for Mario. In addition, there is also a Pikmin skin, but its method of obtaining is unknown.

General compatibility[edit]

Figures[edit]

Jakk's Pacific has a collection of Pikmin-themed figures in the works, some of which are already released. They are being released in sets of series, along with other Nintendo characters. The first wave of Pikmin figures consist of Olimar and a Red Pikmin, with more waves set to release periodically over the calendar year. All of the figures are approximately 2.5 inches tall. Text is written on the back of each box describing each character respectively. These figures are not based off of Pikmin 3 exclusively – the image on the back of the Red Pikmin box shows a Red Pikmin with a bud as it appears in Pikmin 3, however the image of Olimar shows him as he would look in Pikmin and Pikmin 2. This is odd, because the figure itself has Olimar's visible whistle and the extra suit buttons, which he did not obtain until the third game.

Olimar
  • Series: 2.5 Inch Series 1-3
  • Release date: April 6th, 2015

Sanei Pikmin merchandise[edit]

In 2001, nine Pikmin plushes were released by the Japanese Company Sanei. The plushes consisted of the first three Pikmin plushes each with either a leaf, bud, or flower. In 2004 they re-released and re-tagged these plushes to focus on Pikmin 2, as well as releasing 9 more plushes. These new plushes consisted of Purple and White Pikmin, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower variant, as well as a plush for Captain Olimar, Louie, and a red Bulborb. The Red Pikmin, Blue Pikmin, Yellow Pikmin, Olimar, and Louie plushes are all approximately 7 inches, while the Purple is approximately 9 inches, the White is approximately 6 inches, and Bulborb is approximately 10 inches.

In 2013, they released a similar lineup of smaller 5 inch figures that also included a keying. The set contained a Red leaf Pikmin, a budded Yellow Pikmin, a flowered Blue Pikmin, a budded Purple Pikmin, and a flowered White Pikmin. They also released three Pikmin plushes which acted as containers. These included a Red Pikmin with a box, a Blue Pikmin with a mug, and a Yellow Pikmin with a cup.

Agatsuma Pikmin figurines[edit]

This article or section needs to be cleaned up, either its format or general style.
Notes: This is confusing to read.

Agatsuma has released three volumes of Pikmin toys to promote Pikmin 2. They were only released in Japan, and were produced in randomly arranged sets.

Volume one[edit]

The first of the three volumes. These contain three sets of three Pikmin (Red, Yellow, or Blue) with Olimar, Louie, or the President included. There are three sets with Red, White, and Purple Pikmin in different stages. These include a Dwarf Red Bulborbs in each set. There are also three sets with five Pikmin each, in different stages. Oddly, there are nine Red Pikmin, and six of every other type. The Hocotatians used in this volume are also used in volume three. The rare special figurine for this one is a Red Bulborb. The Pikmin in this volume are the same as the ones used in volume two. The figures are not made of the same material that is used in series 3.

Volume two[edit]

Volume two has six of each Pikmin (two leaf, two bud, two flower), a Wogpole, and a Yellow Wollywog. Another set has the Dwarf Orange Bulborb, Dwarf Red Bulborb, and Snow Bulborb. The set of three Purples comes with a Bulborb Larva. The set of three Whites comes with a Breadbug. The Red, Yellow, and Blue Pikmin sets come with three different stages of Bulbmin. Two secret figures are the regular ship and its golden variant. The figurines are the same as in volume one, except instead of three Dwarf Red Bulborbs, there are many different creatures. These figurines are of the same material as series 1.

Volume three[edit]

The three sets that contain three Red, Blue, or Yellow Pikmin come with a Pellet Posy of the same color, instead of a Bulbmin as in volume two, or a Dwarf Red Bulborb as in volume one. As always, the set of five flower, bud, or leaf Pikmin doesn't come with anything. Purples and Whites come with a Fiery Blowhog or a Watery Blowhog. A set of Olimar, Louie, and President is also available; they are the same as the set from volume one and two. The three secret items are the Onions. This volume looks much more organic than volumes 1 or 2.

Pikmin keyring collection[edit]

Takara Tomy Arts released a collection of keyrings in February 2014 based on Pikmin 3. The keychains are comprised of Red, Yellow, Blue, Winged, and Rock Pikmin types, each with either a lead, bud, or flower, bringing the total number of keychains in this series to 15. They are all made of soft rubber and bend very easily. They are designed to clip onto each other from top to bottom, so that one can create "ropes" of Pikmin. These were common to find in Japanese dollar stores.

Pikmin supply collection[edit]

Takara Tomy released a collection of Pikmin themed supplies in December of 2013. All of the items were bundled together in a box, but could be bought separately in Japanese stores. The supplies consisted of Pikmin business card holders available in Red and Yellow Pikmin variations, Pikmin rubber bands, Pikmin decorative tape, and Pikmin mini notepads.

Pikmin swing collection[edit]

Takara Tomy released a collection of Pikmin Swing Mascots in September of 2013. They are rubbery toy Pikmin that can wiggle back and forth when shaken. They come in plastic pots with brown hard plastic made to look like dirt, however it is advertised that the Pikmin can also be stuck into an earphone jack. The pot is brown and has "Pikmin" written on it. The Pikmin are each about 3 inches tall, and consist of a Red, Yellow, or Blue Pikmin, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower, totaling to 9 different variants. The leaf/bud/flower and eyes are the same color as the Pikmin itself, to ease on production costs.

Pikmin keychain collection[edit]

In March 2002 Takara Tomy released a set of keychains which contained a few Pikmin figures, and a clip. The figures consisted of Red, Blue, and Yellow Pikmin, each with either a leaf, bud, or flower, as well as red, blue, and yellow pellets, and a Captain Olimar figure. The keychain clip would come with either 2 or 3 figures as well as a tag with the Japanese Pikmin logo. Keychain clips that contained Olimar would have Olimar and one other figure, while keychain clips that did not would have 3 other various figures.

In July of 2004, these figures were re-released for Pikmin 2, which they then added on to the number of figures. Purple Pikmin and White Pikmin and Bulbmin, with leaf, bud, and flower variants were added, as well as a figure for Louie, and the President. The clip was replaced with a strap, and the logo on the tag was replaced with the Japanese Pikmin 2 logo.

Due to popularity in the first set of keychains, as well as the recent release of Pikmin 3, in June 2013 the figures were released a third time, again based around the first Pikmin game. This time the figures featured straps again, with Olimar attached to the strap, with a Pikmin attached to a new ring on the bottom of Olimar's feet. The series contained 9 different keychains which featured Olimar and one Pikmin. The Pikmin with Olimar varies between Red, Yellow, or Blue and has either a leaf, bud, or flower.
