Bandai's Tamashii Nations no longer makes D-Arts figures. Instead they folded the line into S.H. Figuarts co-existing already. Unfortunately, Bluefin still cannot sell D-Arts/SH Figuarts in the US due to licensing issues. You will need to buy these off Amazon, ebay, AmiAmi, BigBadToyStore, etc. places that sell imports in order to obtain them.
Today, I have another action figure review! Again from the S.H. Figuarts line from Bandai's Tamashii Nations! This time, I caught myself a Lucario! The first Pokemon figure under the S.H. Figuarts line! First introduced in Gen IV, Lucario is a Fighting/Steel type evolved from a Riolu when you level it up in the daytime if your bond with Riolu is close enough. In this pose, he is using Aura Sphere as his trademark move. Similar to Shadow Ball move used by the Ghost types. Lucario has the ability to emanate Aura in all things and understand how others are feeling from over half a mile away!
Paint Job 10/10. Like always from Tamashii Nations. Perfect flawless paint job! Every blue and black on it's fur looks identical to his 3D models in the Super Smash Bros series. The cream color on his torso looks really good too! And I love how the paint turned out on the Aura Sphere!
Durability 9.5/10. Unlike all the other D-Arts figures. His legs are double-jointed. It would seem a bit awkward but that also give a little more articulation with the legs. However, Lucario doesn't come with an extra pair of paws where he can place the Aura Sphere on. It is difficult to get him to hold the Aura Sphere because of this. It will take a lot of tries to get him to not drop the Aura Sphere.
Fun Factor 10/10. Where do I start here? As most of you already know, I have the D-Arts Mewtwo. He was the first Pokemon in the D-Arts line. Then came Charizard (it has been hinted that they will reissue it under the S.H. Figuarts line), Venusaur and Blastoise. Now that I have Lucario as an Figuart? It's time.....that's right! It's time......to do a diorama! I am gonna be uploading diorama where Lucario and Mewtwo will charge up their Aura Sphere and Shadow Ball respectively in a duel! Oh my god, that would be so badass!
If you guys wanna get this? You better get it like RIGHT NOW! Because they are selling out of these fast! I am serious. If your a Pokemon fan? Stop reading this and buy it right now! Lucario is in his finest right now and you may not be able to find one for a while unless you buy this soon! Best Lucario figure ever made. Just like the D-Arts Mewtwo. Best Mewtwo figure ever made!
