PokeFever has reached an all-time high with the release of "Pokemon Go," the pocket monster-hunting, GPS-based app that has made its way onto everyone and their mom's smartphone. Having reached cultural critical mass, the series has started to bleed into other hugely popular franchises -- like "Star Wars."
An image of an action figure that blends elements of "Pokemon's" most iconic grass-type, Bulbasaur, and "The Empire Strikes Back's" enduring bounty hunter, Boba Fett, is the latest cross-franchise anomaly to leave fans scratching their heads. The image was first uploaded to Imgur on August 4, 2016 by user paperPlates with the all-too-apt title, "Jar Jar Jinx."
There's no word on the validity of the image and whether or not these actions figures are in any way real and available for retail or are just a decent work of Photoshop magic, though the grainy image quality and small visual errors point towards a fabrication.
Here's hoping it's real, because if the figures end up being fakes, there's bound to be a cross-section of fans disappointed that they won't be able to cast Leech Seed on Han Solo.
