    The first three starters final forms!? I am gonna go broke if those come out, I'm assuming the market will be tested with Mewtwo and they'll proceed from there. Mewtwo will probably sell gangbusters in the US, and they'll probably go with Charizard next as I think he's the most popular of the 3.

    I don't know how our of the loop I am, but I was excited when I saw Bass and Treble on their FB page, along with Megaman sporting the copy colors:

    I wonder if the red version comes with Rush armor?

    I don't think I'll bite on Charizard, Venosaur, or Blastoise. Mewtwo is a must though!

    I doubt it, me and saf7 were talking about it, it's supposed to be Scorch Wheel colors, with the pink one next to him being Spring.. uh, Spring Man's weapon colors.
    Between this, the pokemon, Hakumen being shown (Noel by end of the show, plz, not the new design either, I will cry) and Sailor Moon, Bandai own my wallet next year

    I'm still holding strong and hoping for some more D-Arts Medabots. :) 

    I'm stoked though that BlazBlue is getting some love.

    Mewtwo looks amazing. Gonna have to get him so my WarGreymon wil have someone to fight. As for the starters, Ill probably get Venosaur because Bulbasaur is my favorite Pokemon. Hopefully the come with little figures of there starting forms.

    D-Arts Pokemon?!? Yes! I was hoping they would start doing those! Mewtwo looks cool. I want Rayquaza, Reshiam, Luxray, and Blaziken. But I know that those last 2 have a slim to none chance of actually getting released. Also, (Imm sorry I know this is the D-Arts thead) DAT J-ARK!

    I am curious just how much articulation they can squeeze out of those designs.

    Blastoise and Venusaur look good. But I don't really like Charizard. He doesn't translate as well to a toy because all the joints that need to be in the neck gives it a more noticeable ugly segmented look.

    Ask for Metal Garurumon and more digimon....instead Pokemon prototypes appear. I feel so trolled lol.

    Anyways, the Mewtwo is pretty cool looking and the fact that he comes with his shadow ball is a nice touch. I wouldn't pay the normal D-Arts price of $50 for him though. $30, maybe $40 if he comes with the Mew but no more. The Charizard and Venasaur look kinda ugly tbh. Their joints are just...terribly obvious. Blastoise is cool but you can get the deluxe Pokemon figure for significantly less and it looks about the same just with less articulation.

    Blastoise is a want, but I hope there's more articulation in the legs than it seems to have

    I always found this argument hilarious. We might as well be suggesting vinyl figures or those cheap, blind packed statuettes for stuff that costs less, but looks the same with less articulation :lol

    Don't really see the problem. Figuarts Zero have no articulation and are just as expensive as the normal figures. The D-Arts Blastoise will probably run $40-$50 while the one I'm talking about is less than half that. Plus if you push his head into his shell, he says his name and his cannons light up lol.

    I prefer articulation as well and am willing to pay a bit extra for it but double the price....not unless it was a huge improvement over the other figure and it was one of my favorite characters.

    I don't think I'd spring for BB D-Arts unless they make Arakune.
    And that's never gonna happen.
