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.

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.
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.
