魂ウェブ限定 S.H.フィギュアーツ 仮面ライダーファイズ アクセルフォーム
Bandai has done it with their S.H. Figuarts line.
Melding naturalistic articulation(light years better than ML or DCUC) with simplistic but show-accurate design/detail, each figure feels like you have your chosen hero pulled straight out of their show and in the palm of your hand.
Now,Faiz here is pure quality!
All of his trademark weapons are present along with posebility allowing him to take any pose you've seen him assume in the show or movie.
While on the articulation, Figuarts feet are die-cast and are heavier than the rest of their light weight bodies. This helps make them super easy to stand.
As for accessories,
Faiz comes with the Faiz shot x2(miniature for his belt and one connected to an alternate fist), Faiz pointer x2(one small for his belt and one larger for his leg),the Faiz Edge, phone(in phone mode), phone in gun mode x2(with and without the pointer attached) as well as belt buckle x 4(with phone inserted, without, phone inserted reversed.), and lastly a pair of fists a hand for holding weapons and a pair of open hands. JEEZ!
That's a lot of figure.
And for a going price of $30-$50, it should be. Some Figuarts go for as much as $300+.
My only gripe is that the figure is made of a lighter pvc that feels less durable than say the average U.S. 6" figure like DC Universe Classics or Marvel Legends.
If you are a big fan of Toku or Sentai or just Japanese superheroes, this is a must buy. The design, accessories and playability are top notch and are worth the $30+ pricetag. Beware, these figures are not for kids as they are made of light weight pvc that the average kid would destroy in hours of play.
Hope you enjoyed the review!
I'm off to marvel at this figure and his "Blaster Mode" Variant!
The accessory count is fantastic and comes with everything that Faiz needs. He has three extra hands aside from the fists already mounted on the figure: open hands and a right gripping hand. The gripping hand holds the Faiz Sword and various Phones very well, though the gun mode phones appear to be a bit too big for the hand and I fear that leaving them in the hand for too long could stretch it out.
Beyond this, he has the Faiz Sword, which is well detailed and the red paint on the blade looks excellent, three Faiz Phones, one in phone mode, one in gun mode and one in gun mode with the Faiz Pointer attached. Speaking of the Faiz Pointer, he comes with two, a smaller one that mounts on his belt and an extended one that mounts on his leg for Rider Kick poses. He also includes a small Faiz Shot to mount on his belt and a Faiz Shot hand that swaps in place of the right hand and looks better than a Faiz Shot that fits into the gripping hand probably would have. Finally, he comes with two spare belt buckles, one with the Faiz Phone removed for screen accuracy of when he is holding the phone and one with the Faiz Chip removed for screen accuracy when using his other weapons.
Posability is, as expected of Figuarts, phenominal. There are very few poses that this figure is not capable of due to the way the Figuarts joints work. Double joints where they can fit, hinged inner hip joints that allow for high kick poses, specially designed shoulder joints that allow for very natural shoulder positions, a series of ankle joints that allow for natural and wide legged poses, a toe joint that assists for some poses for those that like toe joints, a joint at both the top and bottom of the neck to allow for very natural neck posing and a healthy ab crunch for torso posing. In other words, he has a lot of great joints.
Altogether, this is a figure that should appeal to any action figure collector who is also into Kamen Rider, especially if they are particularly into Kamen Rider Faiz.
My only real gripe is that he has a bit of trouble standing... which I had believed the die-cast feet to be something to prevent such things. He can stand up straight, and with enough tweaking can do some pretty dynamic poses. But he still falls over every so often, which isn't something I like to see on a guy that cost me $35 bucks.
Now for another tidbit that I think other collectors might like to hear. Recently the Shinken Red and Shinken Gold figuarts have hit stores in the US. They generally hit the price range of 33-37 dollars. That is the general worth of these figures, and that is what one should be paying, even online. I see these guys run for quite a bit on other sites, but anything over 50 is pushing it, and even then you'll want accessories to come with that. Not exactly related to this purchase, but it's a good way to gauge prices.
All in all this figure is a solid purchase and is not one I will soon be regretting. I'd recommend this figure to anyone that is a fan of Faiz, or is wanting to expand or start their foray into Figuarts.
