RUMOR: Figuarts Mario at the Nuremberg Toy Fair!?

Rumor has had it a Mario figure from Bandai would hit this year, and with this hint from Bluefin, it looks like he'll be on display at the Nuremberg Toy Fair!

We'll bring you more news as to when pictures drop!

NOTE: Bluefin used the Figuarts hastag on twitter for this hint, so it looks like it won't be a  D-Arts. Again, we'll keep you posted.

Review: S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla 2000 Millennium (Yuji Sakai Concept)

Introduction:  While Bandai/Tamashii Nation's S.H. Monsterarts line is certainly no stranger to controversy among fans, certain entries are more controversial than others.  An example of this would be King Ghidorah, with its much maligned wing issues.  Another is Godzilla 1964 with it unconventional joint design.  Still another would be the very subject of this review:  The S.H. Monsterarts Godzilla 2000 Millennium.  Why is this figure controversial?  Well, instead of sculpting a straight up film accurate version, sculptor Yuji Sakai decided to base the Monsterarts G2K on his own unused concept.  Naturally, this caused confusion and turmoil among the fans (though honestly...  what doesn't?).  Why were they releasing the concept version?  Where was the film accurate Godzilla 2000 fans have been waiting for?  Aside from speculation, no one is sure.
However, as clear pictures of the prototype began to surface, one thing seemed certain:  Yuji Sakai wasn't pulling any punches.  It looked incredible.  So how did Sakai's prototype translate in the transition to mass market form?  Read on and find out!
