U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers recently busted a bit counterfeit Pokemon toy shipment that made its way to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The figurines came from Hong Kong and were being sent to a location in Snyder County, Pennsylvania.
Believe it or not, the shipment contained over 86,000 figurines, which were valued at $603,936. That's an incredible amount of counterfeit toys that you can bet Pokemon Co. and Nintendo are happy to have off the market. U.S. customs also made a point to mention that these items represented a choking hazard, and are often found to contain lead-based paints, so there were safety reasons for yanking the toys as well.
