As if Nintendo needed any more ideas on how to cash in on its insanely popular Pokemon characters, an artist has now made tiny pocket-sized sculptures of the iconic creatures and nicknamed them Pennymon.
Made out of clay and small enough to stand on a penny, this collection of Pennymon figures was created over the course of a single summer by the artist and Reddit user known as Ninjazzy.
To make each figure as authentic looking as possible, the right color of clay for each part of a particular Pokemon needed to be carefully selected. And, when the right color clay wasn't available to purchase, Ninjazzy had to mix different colors together until the perfect shade was obtained. Some of the more intricate models also contain small pieces of wire to help them hold together.
Included in the series are all 151 of the original generation one Pokemon; however, Ninjazzy is expected to start work on generation two in the near future.
