US CUSTOMS OFFICERS SEIZED MORE THAN 206,000 FAKE POKEMON FIGURINES IN ONE MONTH

A news release from US Customs & Border Protection on 15 June advised that just a month after seizing more than 86,000 counterfeit Pokemon action figures, CBP officers in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, seized more than 120,000 more counterfeit Pokemon action figures from Hong Kong.  If authentic, this latest seizure would have had a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of more than $840,000.
