I’ve seen it all now. You can now own the infamous Charizard card in rug form thanks to Kanto Starter, an online Pokémon merch store in the Czech Republic.
The 5’2″ x 3’6″ (160cm x 110cm) rug comes complete with all the fire and shininess that made the original Base Set Charizard card a hit for kids in the 90s and rich millennial brats today but at a fraction of the price: €135. But be warned: this is a limited edition rug and won’t be released again. And you have to pre-order it with shipping taking 6-8 weeks. You know, like Pokémon card boxes right now.
Do I see people scalping rugs to sell on for profit? Yes. Will I be buying this rug at any price? No.
Update: The rug is no longer available but
you can still buy a Mewtwo rug or a Lugia rug for the same price!
Update 3: They’re all gone! 🙁
