Pokemon Going D-Arts With Mewtwo, Charizard, Venusaur And Blastoise Figures
The final evolutions of each of the three starter pocket monsters from the original Pokémon Red/Blue video games -- plus the title's mightiest mutant -- will all be getting hyper-articulated action figures as part of Bandai's D-Arts line in Japan in 2013. Shown at the Tamashii Nation 2012 late last month, all four of the figures seem loosely in scale compared to one another (although hardcore Pokédex purists will likely have a Cubone or two to pick with Bandai). Mewtwo and a packed-in Mew figure are the first figures slated to roll out next year, followed by versions of Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise (although it's unclear if those toys will include smaller versions of their previous forms the way Mewtwo does). Acessory-wise, Mewtwo and Mew will rock articulated hands, effect parts and of course his tiny ancestor, Mew for around 3,900 Yen (roughly $50 USD) when it drops in March. You can take a look at all of the upcoming D-Arts Pokémon goodness after the cut, and totally daydream of the possibility of a D-Arts Ash Ketchum/Satoshi Tajiri to go along with all of them.
