    Definitely getting Bowser and the set that has Lakitu. I like my Jakks Pacific Bowser, but his poseability is a bit lacking, so I'm very interested in seeing how Bandai articulates him.

    Edit: Aaaand I just saw the Hammer Bro, definitely getting that pack for sure. Lakitu with a Hammer Vro and two Spiny Shells is a good variety bundle.

    Thought about that myself. I know Luke used it a couple times in the novels (though it was green I believe) and he's got that robo hand.

    Yeah, these are going to be really cool.

    Betting Hammer Bro and Lakitu will be some sort of Play Set E or two-pack... I sure hope they will be anyway.

    But Bowser I can't wait for! Hell yeah!

    Man I was really excited when I read "Figuarts Bowser", but upon looking at the pictures it looks like his articulation is limited. That scares me. I hope it's just a bad angle, or a painted prototype. If the released Bowser doesn't have elbows of all things, I'm gonna be really disappointed.

    According to Disney yeah, but just because it's not officially canon doesn't mean I can't have it as part of my personal canon. As far as I'm concerned as long as it doesn't contradict anything in the movies or tv shows it's welcome in my world.

    Vader will look nice firing force lightning I think. :)

    Oh god. He's so inarticulate it hurts. And so tiny too. Just look at that picture of him with Mario! That's a definite pass. I hate to say it but this Mario figuarts line has been a massive disappointment to me, and looks like it will continue to be.

    Wow, I can deal with the articulation cuts (Bowser is pretty much always drawn in the same exact position and he'll stay that way on the shelf) but he's only 5"? What the hell?

    And those Figuarts TMNT are leagues above the Playmates ones imo. I'll buy them just to support the line and hopefully get us Splinter, Shredder and April for starters. I don't really need a Casey since he didn't really do anything in the cartoon.

    I didn't even think that far ahead - the possibility of a SHF Shredder...wow!

    I remember putting TMNT when they were doing a survey at SDCC 2014. I put down the movie turtles though.

    Wouldn't get my hopes up too high. All these collectors lines just seem keen on doing the turtles while the villains don't exist at all. Even Playmates dropped the ball doing R&B before doing the shredder!

    As for the super mario line I really think its D Arts left overs. The quality is more akin to it than SHF at its current level. Ah well atleast its a nicely sculpted bowser....

    Say WHAT? SHF TMNT?! Eff yeah! Looks like they're based on the original Classics TV show versions of the characters too! Suh-weet! All four will be bought hard! Wonder if an SHF Shredder is in the works?
