    So it is, I had that the wrong way around. That makes FFRs closer in scale with older Souchaku Henshin figures instead. Also, more useless other than the weapon forms.

    I've got a FFR Decade. You interested in the figure or just the card itself?

    Honestly just the card, since I have the Figuart it would be kinda redundant to have the figure. Since I have the K-Touch coming I have an instinct to have nicer looking cards for the video review.

    I wouldn't say useless... for a new Rider fan, they're perfect because they give you all Heisei Riders and their Final Form Ride forms as well.

    And they're suprisingly poseable.

    And... to not make it sound like I'm just trying to make a sales pitch, but I actually think the weapons forms are the "worst" part, mainly because of how heavy each Rider is. I think Bandai realized this mistake when they started making the Final Form Ride versions for SH Figuarts.

    Regardless, they're fun to fiddle with, like all "Transformers" are.

    Veoh has the full series, but realize that they're only HK subs. Kuuga has never been fully fansubbed, as the groups that start it have invariably failed to finish. SCS Works has done the best version so far, but they got to episode 12 and took a break for the holidays at the end of '09 and haven't resumed yet. Order of Zeronos says they'll get to it again once they resume work and finish Double, but I'm not really holding my breath on that (as working past episode 12 would mean OoZ would actually be doing something unique for once and I'm not sure they have that in them).

    I can vouch for FFR Decade myself. It's no Figuart, but it has all the poseability that it needs to have.

    Well, got KT Wild Chalice today. Hopefully I'll get to doing pics and a review soonish.

    He's a... colorful chap.

    I was thinking mostly about Omegus in that case, since he was the one who first asked about it. He doesn't need a second, just slightly smaller poseable Decade as much as he does that darn card.

    Y'know, Omegus, you could always take the FFR Decade, keep the card and paint the figure into this:

    Hahah, I'm hoarding cards! Gimme gimme! Mwhahaha!

    Ahem... actually someone was nice enough to send me the FFR Kuuga figure... which just makes me want more now. Thing is I dont think they even knew about this discussion here, it was off YouTube, it just had really good timing. Sent me an extra card, too, Final Form Faiz, so my deck is building!

    Speaking of I went Ganbaride browsing and found they did henshin cards for Black RX and Super 1, almost got them BUT their barcodes are for generic noises, like they forgot the Decadriver HAS the clips for their names.

    I really want those FFRs and Sushi Changer. damn all these sales!

    Omegus why not just get some really good paper and make your own cards? Sungel on Rangerboard has scans for each and every card for the Decadriver, DiEndriver and Tensouder

    Point the way? I've been thinking of doing that lately, I have index card stock, I even have some gloss paper if I want to be fancy. (Even then I'd rather have the real things...)

    BBTS has a sale on a lot of Sentai stuff and a couple FFR figures (Decade, Radiator-face, and Hibiki).

    I see. Anyway, had a chance to fiddle around with Rising Ixa. He's great. His left ankle is a tad lose and it looks like one of his arms joint at shoulder is put in backwards(maybe I'm just being crazy), but that's just minor QC problems. It is definitely worth money.
