Futari Wa, Kamen Rider!

Futari Wa, Kamen Rider!
06 Jan 2011 14:57:28

It's been a while since I've posted been so very busy with work, and collecting and stuff. I decided it's time I updated this here piece.

My collection has amassed significantly over the past year, so many toy releases and announcements, and 2011 does not look like it's letting up. For now I'm gonna post a montage of pics of couple of toys I had been anticipating for a while.

S.H. Figuarts Futari Wa Pretty Cure Black, and Pretty Cure White.


Cure Black and Kamen Rider Black have a history of association


The VA for Cure Black appeared as a little girl in both Kamen Rider Black and Black RX tv shows.





While this isn't a review I do have to say that I'm slightly disappointed in the Figuarts releases. While I have heard that the PreCure Figuarts tend to be slightly less in quality than Kamen Rider ones, I was hoping Bandai would have gone all out with one of toei's flagship franchises. FutariWa Precure revitalized the magical girl genre bringing in a fairly huge following. They could have put a bit more effort into this release. Things that bother me are balance issues, tiny joints that feel they could break, and some blatant paint application issues.

Otherwise I love these toys, just because they are probably the best representation we'll get out of these characters that is in a small affordable toy line.

I also have a new camera, I just need to make a better light setup, so hopefully I'll post more often.

I was tempted to get them too but skipped them due to lack of funds and the abominably slow pace I'm watching the anime at (I'd say I'm watching about an episode a month) I do enjoy it though. The figures do look nice so enjoy them.

And I found the picture that explains the relation between Cure Black and Rider Black.

Wow dude, that picture is amazing and awesome.

I have yet to own a pretty cure figuart myself, although I have preordered cure Marine, I too would hope Bandai would put the same amount of effort into their cure figuarts. Especially when figuarts cure Marine was delayed to March.

Yeah i was both relieved and annoyed at that delay. Relieved because I have a pretty hefty January preorder (two big statues + figmas and other stuff), so it eased the financial burden. At the same time, the delay means that I won't get those figures till much much later, it'd better because of quality improvements. Bandai has been getting lazy with figuarts, minimizing diecast to no diecast at all, getting rid of hinge angle joints. All the while Max Factory is putting delays because they want to improve quality, i've been hearing some good stuff on newer figma releases that are coming out of that other factory.

Nice to see you're back :)
While I'm not a big fan of action-figures in general, I definitely like your upgraded photo-quality :D
