At long last, Kamen Rider Double has finally hit the S.H.Figuarts line, premiering in his standard CycloneJoker form! He comes packed with his fair share of flaws, but the pros outweigh them this time around, and create one hell of a beautiful figure. Also, before ANYONE goes on a rant about how WFC toys are awesome because you get all forms in three figures. Well, no. My goal is to have all the forms of Double on display at once. That would require me to buy 9 WFC figures ANYWAY, so I might as well get AWESOME figures instead of half assed ones. That is all.
CJ here comes with three sets of hands (finished henshin, kazoero hands, and relaxed hands), as well as two mufflers/scarves, one straight (blowing in the wind) and one down, offering a wide range of various poses for you to stick this guy in. The paint is top notch, the metallic green used on the Cyclone side is nothing but superb, offering a GREAT contrast to the matte finish of the Joker side. Yeah, the unpainted joint and the unpainted GaiaMemories are a bit of a let down, but it’s a small price to pay for such a stellar looking figure. I can’t recommend him enough.
