I can't consider myself as Pokémon enthusiast however I'm into any Blastoise or Kamex (Much known in Japan). My all time favorite Pokémon since the beginning. Bandai D-ARTS line does not disappoint with this high quality Pokémon figure. The paint on this figure is fantastic, I love how poseable it is - great facial expressions like the openable mouth plus hands and legs joint-gestures abound. Bandai even decided to make the claws and toes articulated but I'm came with one of the toes broken. It's was a preowned item so it my bad not to care the item carefully on purchased.
The paint on this piece is just amazing with matte finishing. Its an ideal size in decent 6"(11cm) for a display and it is bigger that most of the Blastoise figurines ever releaed. The set comes with two effect Hydro Pump parts, which are supposed to be water blasts for the pair of cannons which strongly reminded me of Mobile Suit Gundam, Guncannon. Comes with base resembling a round Pokéball and stand for more dynamic posing and stability. I preferred the figure by itself since the figure hold up well I'm please with its sturdiness.
