Moncolle+ (モンコレプラス), full name Monster Collection Plus, is a relatively new series of figures released by Takara Tomy in July 2009. Unlike the standard Monster Collection figures, these feature more dynamic poses- usually depicting a fighting stance or acrobatic feat. The figures are set onto a base, allowing for a proper display of such a figure. The bases also feature a chip system, designed to be used with specific toys geared up to read the data from the chips to set up battles.
The first wave introduced a lot of Pokemon to the figure series line up. Since then, they've been receiving a staggered release of 1-2 figures every month.
Moncolle+ retail for 504円 in Japan.
In addition to the standard Moncolle Plus figures, there have been lottery issue figures made in the Moncolle Plus range. Most of these figures are a shiny, or alternate colour version of the Pokemon. Others, like Arceus for example, simply feature a pearlescent paint job.
