If you look at the game company Retro Studios, who made the amazing Metroid Prime trilogy and Donkey Kong Country Returns, they are owned by Nintendo. Now, if you compare the game quality between what was developed by Retro Studios and that of which was made DIRECTLY by Nintendo, it really is different. Same can be said about ACTIVI$ION and Treyarch/Infinity Ward with Call of Duty. Bandai just owns the company.
Further more, that would be like saying don't credit, say, Green Day for making music that some people enjoy; credit Reprise Records.
Tamashii gets my vote.The company, and other lines made by them, have an AMAZING track record, and the outlook for the MonsterArts line looks great. I would, personally, rather save my money to buy a figure with an amazing sculpt and articulation instead of buying one (or multiple) figures that don't quite do it for me, or look great and... don't move.
Don't get me wrong, some Marmits and Gigabrains look fantastic, but getting to display some of my favorite monsters killing each other looking exactly like they did in their movie? Hubba hubba!
