Bandai’s D-Arts Charizard is the best lizard since the lizard. Bandai’s D-Arts figure of the Pokemon looks absolutely bananas, with multiple points of tail and neck articulation, a flame accessory, and a moving mouth for terrifying expressions.
This Charizard figure ships in April for ¥3,990 ($46). If Bandai decides to keep going with Pokemon figures, this collection is going to get very expensive.
This limited edition beauty just landed in Japan
If you were one of the lucky few people who won in Japan’s raffle for a chance to buy the “Lizardon Edition 3DS LL” (or Charizard Edition 3DS XL), you would have taken this thing home yesterday. But you’re probably not, so you’ll just have to settle for admiring these photos we’ve posted from people bragging about it online.
Unless Nintendo decides to bring it to Europe (and not to North America, like the Pikachu 3DS XL). Or you throw down big bucks to import one from a Japanese auction.
Charizard special edition 3DS XL, you are so awesome. The way your gold lines fill the lid, that flame on the back, and that hint of teal in your eye — I love it all.
But why are you a Japan-exclusive system, sold only to people who win a preorder lottery? Maybe this is why guys who pick you aren’t consider boyfriend material.

I was wondering when I’d finally see a video game take on these clever GIF tricks that play on Tumblr’s photo set borders (click the image if it’s not animating for you).
I learned last week that these have been popular on people’s dashboards lately, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a lot more similar game GIFs out there that I just haven’t seen yet, like this Super Mario World one.
If you’re not on Tumblr or aren’t familiar with its GIF culture, this probably doesn’t make sense, but it’s still a fun Charizard animated image for your Sunday.
Buy: Pokemon Black/White Version 2, Pokemon Conquest

“Boyfriend Criteria” by Katie Turner.
Thank God I married my wife before she could find out that I chose Charmander as my starter Pokemon. Who knows what terrible state of lonesomeness I’d be in right now had she discovered that secret.
If he was available at the beginning, though, I’d have picked Meowth instead in a heartbeat. Meowth is the shit.
Kevin: Imagine that I let you borrow $50, but in exchange for my generosity, you promise to pay me back the $50 with an extra $10 in interest. To make sure you pay me back, I take your Charizard Pokémon card as collateral …
Let’s say that the Charizard is worth $50, so in case you decide to not return my money, at least I’ll have something that’s worth what I loaned out.
But one day, people realize that Pokémon is stupid and everyone decides that the cards are overvalued. That’s right—everybody turned twelve on the same day! Now your Charizard is only worth, say, $25.
At the same time, you’re having trouble paying back the $60 you owe me. So what would you rather do: try and pay me back the $60 or just default and give me your $25 Charizard?
Olivia: I’d give you the Charizard.
Kevin: Exactly. Who wouldn’t? Now, the bank — I mean me — has lost $25 when I expected to make $10. What’s the lesson here?
Olivia: Pokémon is dumb
Really, our economy would be in a much better state right now if financial institutions had traded in something more stable, like Meowth cards.
