    Villians just don't sell that well in Japan.
    An armored white blaze would be pretty dope. If sentinel doesn't make one I'd totally buy a 3P option.

    For anyone who's got the Sentinel Ryo in hand how are the knees on yours? Mine are "fine" but loose enough to where they don't feel very future-proof if that makes sense?

    Do the knees not really support his weight well? How well does the armor attach, especially the magnetized parts?

    Wotafa has put up a review. I just ordered off HLJ, I got burned by the last set but Sentinel hasn't let me down yet so hopefully this one works out and we at least get all the troopers reasonably priced.

    Nice, I like how the side skirts come together much better than the armor plus. The head assembly looks like it has maybe a bit too many parts but the end results look good. I'm also glad none of the magnetic parts fell off while wotafa was handling it. Looks like a solid release. I'm happy they went for a simple design for the swords.

    Can you connect the black / stored armored face? To the body?

    I have both armored Black Blaze and reg White Blaze 3rd party and love them both. Bought them off eBay, and they’re still there, but pricey. I wasn’t as careful with one of Blk Blaze’s paws as it’s joint needed some heat to loosen and it broke so if you get them, be careful.

    Good to see Ryo has come out well. The white shoulder clips look a little thin, but hopefully, those and everything else will stand the test of time. Having all the armor plus figures at one point and selling them before they cracked at the hips definitely made me quite sad.

    Man I never noticed how big the hands were on the armor plus. Sentinel defintely nailed the face sculpts and decreased the lankiness the armor plus had. Some flame effect parts would have welcome addition. I'm also surprised he doesn't come with the usual sentinel stand.

    Got mine in and had to armor him up asap. Way better than the Armor Plus line with the proportions, aesthetic, and no exploding hips. Icing on the cake would have been some flame effects and a stand, but I'll figure that part out later.

    Does it feel like the armor will be able to detach and reattach securely without wearing down the connection points over time? Also does anything feel prone to looseness?

    Mine secures nicely, and doesn't feel like it will fall off at all. That is due to them using good tabs and slots. Nothing feels loose on mine, but the hips might get loose over time.

    Does the armor attachment/detachment process feel a lot better than the Armor Plus?
