    Ooooh, this'll be good for those who missed out! Amazing Mighty is a great look, I wonder if they'll release Ultimate again. I also wonder if this 10th version has any differences besides the running change to the Kuuga head.

    Maybe, just maybe, this'll bring the price on the secondary market down?

    I'll wait for reviews. The fuuto pi w reissue was a pretty big step down from the original.

    I passed on and regret doing so for both Amazing Mighty and Fang Joker (more so Amazing Mighty), so these reissues are welcome. Hopefully they aren't too pricey or bring the aftermarket down on the originals to something more reasonable.

    Edit: General Retail and not webshop for Fang Joker is a genuine surprise to me. And 9900 yen isn't bad by modern standards, even though it's a 50% increase over the original.

    I really didn't think it was. What do you think was wrong with it?

    Visible seam lines when the original didn't have them, and the qc was just bad. Paint aplications were uneven and alot of people (myself included) had issues with paint chipping. The new oversized scarf also looks so much worse in person.

    It’s impressive that Yuji is part of the Shinkocchou Seihou line (may he rest in peace).

    I would love for us to get more kaijin/monster figures, really. The things I'd do for some Gurongi...

    Apparently there isn’t a market for them.

    That's what I've been told, but then who do kids have their Kamen Riders fight?

    Seems like part of the impetus for encouraging plotlines that focus on Riders against each other. Surely part of it is related to Toei, considering how little attention villains get there too.

    The Phase Variation/Polymorphic Plague-Type (depending on your translation) Batta Augs left a pretty strong impression on me the first time I saw Shin Kamen Rider.

    Their fucked up face underneath the helmet certainly left an impression on me. :lol 

    I do wish we had that daytime fight scene that was cut with them, too.

    I’m a fan of a majority of the Rider suits and own a fair few figuarts of them but I can’t fathom why Bandai insists on making figures that look like they’re wearing hip waders. Like that’s the best they can do for hip-to-thigh articulation: it just really detracts from what could otherwise be great figures.

    I mean, what would be the alternative? No thigh articulation? Old Figuart-style hips where the sculpt breaks away and you can’t even rotate the thighs anyway?

    There has to be something less unsightly than a funnel that the hip fits into. Like a little sculpted detail better integrated with the hip connection. Some figures don’t really need the break in sculpt when the hip ball is allowed enough rotation.
